Laura’s Choice: Best Stocking Fillers!

Christmas shopping. Every year we promise ourselves that we’re going to start early and have it wrapped to perfection and stored away by mid-October. And yet every year the same thing happens; life gets in the way and before we know it, it’s a week before Christmas and we’re scrambling around the shops desperately trying to get it all done before the 25th. We never learn! If this sounds like you, fret not – there’s still a fair few shopping days to go before the big day, and with MyTights guaranteeing Christmas delivery should you select the Special Delivery option before 5pm on December 23rd, I thought it would be a great idea to compile my list of the very best stocking fillers on offer!

 

Falke Bedsocks

Falke Bedsocks

For me, stocking fillers should be small in stature yet huge in style. Most importantly, they shouldn’t break the bank, and great news – we have a fabulous range of inexpensive gift ideas that could soon find themselves in your doorway. If you’re in a real quandary about what to buy a loved one, you simply can’t go wrong with the Charnos Cosy Feather Socks. With forecasters projecting that wintry weather is set to hit, these sumptuously soft socks have a textured feel akin to feathers for instant warmth and snugness. Everyone craves toasty feet, so they really are a risk-free option, and even better, they’re available in 5 colours so you’re bound to find a shade that’s suitable. Perfect for mothers, girlfriends and daughters alike, another brilliant choice would be the Falke Bedsocks. While you may be slaughtered for making getting out of bed in the mornings even harder, she’ll love the instant warming effect and super-soft texture of these fluffy socks. Made with ethically sourced angora for an added hit of luxury! Sticking with the winter warmers for the moment, the Pretty Polly 200D Fleecy Opaque Thermal Tights have a cosy fleece lining that really does keep the cold out. The beauty of these is that they have the feel of thermal tights but the look of standard opaques, so nobody has to know. Once described as the ‘best thing to happen to winter since hot chocolate’, they’re also available in a footless version if that’s more up her street.

Pamela Mann Paris Skyline Tights

Pamela Mann Paris Skyline Tights

If the lady in your life is something of a budding fashionista, she’ll love the Pamela Mann Paris Skyline Tights, with their mock suspender design and the pièce de résistance (well, when in Paris), a Parisian skyline motif taking pride of place in the sheer section. Widely regarded as the most romantic city in the world, you’re bound to be in her good books if you opt for these! Capable of adding an undiscovered dimension to a wardrobe favourite, another option are the Jonathan Aston 40D Opaque Tights, which are available in a rainbow of colours (17 to be precise). Updating her look in an instant, she’ll gain even coverage and a pop of colour for just £6 a pair. Recently featured in the Daily Mail, the Charnos Heart Net Tights have an intricate heart net design, providing the perfect base to a classic LBD and allowing for a subtle hint of leg to shine through. Equally as great for the daytime as they are for a special evening event! If she’s partial to a spot of luxury, only Wolford will suffice. Perfect for those who aren’t afraid to stand out from the crowd, the Wolford Leonie Tights have a charming polkadot pattern, starting at the mid thigh and increasing in size as they descend down the leg for a stunning visual effect. Any advocate of patterned tights like these will know all too well the struggle it can be to source a particular pair in the mornings. So why not score double brownie points and also treat her to the fantastic Stoxbox? Simply insert the box into the leg of the tights, wrap the rest inside the hollow back and, well, that’s it… a beautifully presented hosiery drawer awaits!

Moving onto your male counterparts, the best way to put a smile on their face, in my opinion, is with Happy Socks. The ever popular Swedish brand are famed for their wacky design, a perfect example being the Happy Socks Men’s Dot Socks, which have a symmetrical polkadot print and combed cotton composition. He may not say it, but he’ll be eternally grateful once he realises how toasty his feet will be, not to mention stylish. Another way for him to earn his fashion stripes (if you pardon the pun) are with the Happy Socks Men’s Stripe Socks, which have a gorgeous nautical design and contrast heel and toe. Great for everyday use, we guarantee he’ll be showing off to all his mates! If you don’t fancy battling with the wrapping paper this year, a convenient (not to mention incredibly stylish) choice would be to opt for the Happy Socks Men’s Socks Gift Box – Multi! Featuring four pairs of wonderful men’s socks in an attractive gift box, he’ll be grinning from ear to ear and gain a revamped sock drawer to boot. Or kill two birds with one stone and treat him to the Happy Socks Men’s Briefs and Socks Gift Box, instead, featuring both a classic boxer brief and mid-calf socks amongst a multitude of spots,

Country Kids Sparkly Tights

Not forgetting the little ones, she’ll adore the Country Kids Sparkly Tights, covered in a glitter fleck that will be the envy of the entire playground. While she may insist on wearing them every day, I would recommend saving them for birthday parties and special occasions for a truly adorable legwear look. If your son or daughter is a wildlife fanatic, look no further than the Happy Socks Baby & Kids Animal Socks. Real value for money, you’ll get one pair in a terrific tiger print and the other in a lovely leopard, both of which come with an 80% combed cotton content, giving you peace of mind that their tootsies will be lovely and warm! Let’s face it, they won’t want to share, so it’s probably in your best interest to get them a pack each…

May I take this opportunity to wish all our lovely customers a fantastic Christmas period, and we hope to see you all again in 2015.

Until next time…

Last Chance Christmas Shopping!

Perhaps you’re beginning to panic about getting all your gifts in time for the big day, or maybe you’re sitting smugly next to a pile of already-wrapped presents and just think you deserve a treat.  Whatever your level of preparation, we have lots of Christmassy delights in stock that you can still order in time for Christmas.  Read on to find out our top five festive essentials, or check out the entire Christmas Collection.

More magazine recommends the Celeste Stein Christmas Ornaments Tights, which are wacky enough to put a smile on the face of even the most miserly Scrooge.  They’re not just novelty tights exclusively for Christmas day, either- reduce the amount of leg on show by teaming with dresses and knee high boots and they’ll last you well into the year!  Also available in a glittery version for added festive sparkle.

The Charnos 75th anniversary collection makes the perfect present for mums, sisters and girlfriends – if you can stop yourself from unwrapping them for yourself, that is.  With a collection of three pairs of tights, two styles of hold ups and one stockings design, there’s lots of choice and they all come in adorable vintage style boxes, too.

For the man in your life, what could be more traditionally Christmas than the humble sock?  We’re turning it up a notch this year though – with luxury socks from Burlington and the Falke Silk Men’s Sock for pure indulgence for his feet.

For the perfect stocking filler or the ideal way to keep cosy while the weather finally catches up to the season, take a look at the super soft Falke Bedsocks, available in cream, pale pink and baby blue shades.  Perfect for snuggling up at home or to go under boots for snowball fights!

No Christmas is complete without its fair share of partying, so make sure you take a look at the range of party tights.  Bella Magazine recommends the Spanx Super Shaping Sheers as a festive fashion essential, too – after turkey and all the trimmings it might be time to invest in some shapewear so we can shimmy our way into our New Year’s Eve dresses!
