This year’s Highsnobiety Gift Guide is all about the presents that’ll make a difference in these new and strange times. From gifts that encourage connection with loved ones, to self-love suggestions you entirely deserve at the end of 2020.

The way we see holiday gifting changes drastically over the years. When we’re younger, nearly all of us head straight for the largest package under the tree. But as we get bigger, it's the little things that start to count more and more.

One highly underrated part of the celebrations is the stocking. These glorified, elongated socks packed with tiny gifts embody the spirit of the festive period and the delight of surprise. Think of them as a mood board of gifts. You can get a pretty good estimate of the gifter's and giftee's personality from delving into one of these.

From fruit to coal, the stocking has seen everything, and most of it is sadly forgotten a day later. This is a disservice to the beauty of the long sock, so we’ve put together a gift guide of cool stocking stuffers that people actually want.

Scroll on for the best stocking stuffers to buy this holiday season.
