The origin of the Christmas stocking is disputed, but many attribute this festive tradition to the story of Saint Nicholas, who would bestow gifts on well-behaved children on Christmas eve. If you’re searching for stocking inspiration, or slyly curating your own wishlist, London Sock Company has a stylish selection of gifts for you, with a little help from our friends at Mr Porter.
Everyone appreciates the person who brings an entertaining game to a group gathering. Mr Porter has several beautifully-designed playing cards available, including our favourites from Smythson and luxury game-makers William & Son.
Our cashmere collection is crafted with Johnstons of Elgin, experts in creating luxury garments in its Scottish mills. Our cashmere socks, available in Burnt Orange, North Sea Blue and Slate Grey, are the ultimate luxury stocking filler for anyone who appreciates the finer things in life. Each sock comes wrapped in a luxury gift box, making it that extra special present for Christmas morning.
Three-pair gift boxes
A trio of colours, prints and styles are available in our three-pair collection boxes. These designs provide an immediate sock drawer refresh, for the stylish gent in your life. Our most popular boxes include Spot of Style, the Bloomsbury collection and Simply Dapper.
The flagship London Sock Company collection, our Simply Sartorial range comes in over 15 individual colours. To perfectly complement the traditional clementine you place in a stocking, try our Simply Sartorial in Curious Orange or the favourite East India Saffron.
What could be better than a fresh pair of stylish socks delivered to your door each month? That’s why London Sock Company’s sock subscription makes the ideal stocking filler this festive season. You can download this electronically or it will arrive by post in a gift box, which will perfectly fit into any stocking.
Tipples and treats
The festive season is the ideal time to perfect coffee-making skills and upgrade any sommelier experience accumulated over the years. As the saying goes, a bad workman blames his tools, so make sure any stocking is complete with these beautifully-crafted drink accessories. Discover Mr Porter’s selection, which includes Toast Living’s copper-plated coffee drip set, L’Atelier du Vin’s toolset and Soho Home’s silver-plated ‘Collins’ set.
