This one’s for those on Santa’s Nice List! Or at the very least, for anyone struggling to do Santa’s dirty work and fill the stockings of loved ones. Opening a stocking is one of my favorite things about Christmas: I love the anticipation of what each gift might be, and revel in opening each one, extending Christmas morning for as long as I can! I might still lie about believing in Santa, to ensure that come Christmas morning, there’s an overflowing stocking, hanging from the mantle with my name on it. This week, I scoured Hamilton, shopping for the ultimate stocking stuffers for girls and guys of all ages and preferences – I hope you enjoy what I’ve found!
With so many of us traveling over the holiday, a good book to read is always a perfect gift! By the way, I wrote the one in the photo above! Follow Harper, a dispirited millennial and her friends around the world as she chases her dream of becoming a travel photographer. Runaways, $20 available at Brown & Co. and Luxury Gifts Bermuda (Flower Crown by Helen at GiMi; Photographer, Paul Sawden; Location, Sandymount)
