14 Last-Minute Stocking Stuffers That Don't *Actually* Feel Last-Minute

The holidays have a way of sneaking up on you. And with less than a week until Christmas, if you find yourself frantically searching for something that shows your friends and family just how much they mean to you, these last-minute stocking stuffers won't actually feel last-minute, at all — meaning your loved ones will get a really great gift and be none the wiser. Straying from more traditional presents, these well-sized options are super luxe and yet, won't break the bank.

Every year there seems to be an endless amount of white elephant and secret Santa gift exchanges to take part in. But, truthfully, one can only have (or give) so many pairs of novelty socks and soy-wicked candles. However stuffing stockings with little presents that are unexpectedly useful, like a holiday undergarment kit by the KiT filled with garment tape pasties, etc., or those that focus on spiritual wellness like Smudge Wellness's self-care package are guaranteed to lend and element of surprise and thoughtfulness back into gift-giving.

Rather than waste time scouring the internet or your favorite brick and mortar stores for last-minute finds, TZR has carefully hand-picked 14 items that any and everyone still left on your shopping list will love. And don't worry, if you place your order soon, it's sure to arrive just in time for the holidays.

 

1. Cozy Blanket Scarf

While it might seem like an obvious gift to give, UpWest's chenille scarf is a super cozy option that anyone would be happy to add to their cold-weather collection. Not to mention, its oversized shape offers up many different styling options.



2. Mini Polyp Hoops

Favor is known for supporting indie artists and the holidays are the perfect time to introduce your loved ones to some of your favorite emerging designers. The intricacies of these Mini Polyp hoops make them a cool gift for friends that love fashion.



3. Everyday Ring

Everyone has that friend or family member who wears the same pieces of jewelry every day. And if you're looking for something else to add to their daily lineup, Favor's Parallel ring is an easy choice.



4. Holiday Undergarment Kit

New Year's Eve outfits can require more nontraditional undergarments and KiT's stocking stuffer kit has all the bases covered. It's a useful gift that your loved one never knew they needed (but will love).



5. Sustainable Pajamas

Fans of the brand's flirty dresses and sustainable denim will be over the moon when they find Reformation's in their stocking this year. Not to mention, they're as environmentally friendly as they are cute.



6. Statement Earrings

The holidays call for a lot more festive dressing than usual, so imagine the excitement your loved ones will have when they open up a pair of statement earrings they can start wearing ASAP.



7. Luxury Cardholder

Killing two birds with one stone, buying vintage or second-hand luxury goods ensures you're helping the environment while simultaneously securing a gift that won't put too big of a dent in your bank account.



8. Designer Hair Accessories

With all the hype around Prada's headbands and Dior's bucket hat, this Versace hair tie is a very trendy gift. However the vintage print from the Italian house's archives makes it just as much of a keepsake item.



9. Mini Bag

Whether it's for your mom or your best friend, BY FAR's mini tote is such a chic addition to any bag collection. It even comes with a detachable shoulder strap, allowing it to be worn crossbody.



10. Little Leather Goods

Jacquemus's Bracelet bag is perfectly sized for those occasions that require you to pack (very) light. It's a unique gift that can be worn on your wrist or looped around the strap of any carryall.



11. Spiritual Self-Care Kit

New year, new you? Not quite, but Smudge Wellness is the gift to give for anyone on your list that is in to spiritual wellness. And unlike any other advent calendar they might have received this year, it can be opened at any time.



12. Bracelet Watch

Gucci's watch is a truly special gift. The timeless silhouette paired with the durable leather strap ensure it's something that will last in any jewelry box for years to come.



13. Embellished Underwear

Though underwear might not be at the top of anyone's list, the newly-launched Parade briefs are an exception. Detailed with a crystalized logo, it's a great way to discreetly embrace the holiday season.



14. Cult Bag

For those already familiar with STAUD's cult accessories this tote will be a welcomed surprise. And for others that are just being introduced to the brand, its Pearl Grace Bag is a great gateway bag.
