It’s official: Christmas is a-coming and, being the busy working women that we are, we’ve been keeping an eye out for the best gifts that we can buy online and in time. Yes, this requires a little forward planning, to allow for delivery times and the like. But forward planning also means having that little bit of extra time to really consider what your loved ones would love.

What could be more special than receiving a gift that looks great and is great as well? Which is why we’re trying to shop more sustainably this Christmas — and making sure that our wrapping practices reflect this as well. So rather than wasting all that paper this year, instead consider investing in (or even crafting) little stockings to pass along to your nearest and dearest. These can be reused for years to come and also invite a fun assembly of small and thoughtful gifts. Whether they be for your kris kringle, your loved one’s stocking, or even your own, these are the gifts that just keep on giving.

1) The grown up underwear

Christmas stockings are often ripe for replenishing your underwear drawer. This year though, we’re focusing on the environment as much as we are on our wardrobes, so we’re adding sustainable lingerie to the list for 2016. And Ken’s high cut beauties are the ideal pair. Timeless black and crafted in a soft ribbed modal, they are a grown up take on the Christmas underwear of our youth. Plus we find that the high cut style is flattering as hell.

2) The timeless hoops

Holly Ryan’s Classic Hoops are the kinds of earrings that we could spend years searching for. In the perfect petite size and crafted from solid sterling silver, they are everyday essentials that also feel super special at the same time. Just as effortless with a white tee as they are with a fancy lady silk dress, they are also perfectly sized for a stocking surprise. And you know what they say about small packages.

3) The gift of scent

A luxurious candle like Gascoigne and King’s handmade ‘Belle’ is one of those small indulgences that we love to receive anytime of year — but especially at the end of a year so eventful and confusing as 2016 has been. No, the spring scents of freshly cut grass, geranium and bergamot won’t reverse the fact that Donald Trump is now the US President-elect. But at least they will ease the pain just a little, as we begin to focus on self-care and making 2017 even bigger and better than ever.

4) The multi-tasker

The fact that Christmas falls during summertime in the Southern Hemisphere also offers the perfect excuse for stockings stuffed with summery delights. Yes swimwear, but you know what else is truly special? A beautiful, 100% organic cotton sarong, digitally printed by Mirador. It’s the kind of piece that can work for the beach, as a skirt over simple slip tops, or even as a scarf while travelling. And a versatile gift is a good gift, if you ask us.

5) The perfect white tee

The hunt for the perfect white tee is a real thing. So when one so wonderful as Filippa K’s Tencel Top arrives, it is a total no-brainer for the Christmas stocking. After all, nothing says ‘I love you’ quite like taking the time to consider the details: like the drapey fit, sustainable fabrication and boat cut neckline.
