As I’m pretty much done with my main gifts for everyone (I currently have my fingers crossed that a box of flash-frozen croissants will arrive in time for Christmas morning breakfast at my chosen destination,) I’m now left with the smaller-but-no-less-important decision of what I will use to stuff the stockings. We are a stocking stuffer culture, peeps, and if you’ve ever gotten a not-so-great item at the toe of that bit of hosiery, you know just what I mean. After all, those stockings were hung by the chimney with care in the old poem, so what goes in them should get due consideration.
This is when I like to do a little practical gift giving and a touch of whimsy. I’m a huge fan of wrapping precious items in necessary things, which is why I think it’s fun to wrap jewelry in super soft t-shirts and cute undies from Hanes.
I’ve spoken before about my new love for super-soft Hanes underwear, and between the Hanes Cotton Boy Brief Panties and the Tagless Cotton Stretch Woman’s Boy Brief with ComfortSoft Waist Band, you can find something to please everyone. But it doesn’t stop there: the brand has t-shirts in a wide variety of colors that will layer beautifully under long-sleeved tops and sweaters in the winter, only to pair with white denim and/or your favorite dark skinny jeans in summer. I believe in soft tees, and Hanes has them in spades. I’m particularly fond of the ComfortSoft Long-Sleeve T-Shirt (which fits as well as any of the more expensive brands at a fraction of the price,) and the Women’s Nano-T V-neck T-Shirt, both of which come in sizes up to 2X.
There are also a good number of bras out there for those of us who need a break from the rigors of wearing a hard-core lacy number. You know what I mean: comfortable, soft, great support with no need for an underwire and comfy cups that keep you supported on days when you’re just lounging around. The ComfortFlex Fit Get Cozy Seamless Wire-Free Bra is the over-the-shoulder breast holder that feels like you’re not wearing one. If you have yoga, Pilates or barre class enthusiasts in your midst (which I clearly support,) the Women’s Stretch Cotton Sport 2-Pack is a great gift and fits sizes up to 3X. Actually, that’s a great gift for the person who would like to get more into their fitness routine in the New Year.
Take off the plastic wrapping, roll a pair of earrings in there (these are my current favorites) or a pretty necklace and wrap them in a bow. Pretty, personal AND necessary. Easy, right?
But don’t take my word for it: check out the lookbook video to get a look at the newly revamped shapes and styles. If you’re stumped for good basics for your favorite gal and guy, beautiful, soft underpinnings paired with a small trinket is just so nice. Now hop to it! Those stockings have to be stuffed pretty soon! Happy Holidays!
