With all of the pomp and circumstance surrounding the actual gifts that are nestled under your tree waiting to be opened on Christmas morning, stocking can sometimes be ignored –poor fellas. Don’t let your stocking act as a festive piece of fireplace decoration this year by heading to the Westport stores for the perfect little gift to stuff into your favorite quintessential Christmas sock.
For that preppy little someone in your life, this Tartan iPhone case should do just the trick. And would you look at that; it even looks like it is decorated in a festive, holiday wrapping paper.

Nix the average olive oil from the grocery store for your foodie friends and pick up a bottle of flavored, artisan olive oil from Olivette.

This water bottle from S’well is so darn effective that it will keep cool drinks cold for up to 24 hours and hot drinks sizzling for up to 12 hours. That means your hot chocolate on Christmas morning will stay good and warm all the day long. I think we owe South Moon Under a round of applause.
