Stocking Up With RH

When you’re in the market for charming throwback stocking stuffer ideas, get thee to RH.

Every year, we’re thrilled to bits as we check names off of our holiday lists — until we remember about stocking stuffers. What are we going to get them for stocking stuffers? Candy, batteries, Adele CDs, gift cards, Chapstick… These are perennially useful. But how about throwing in an item or two that inspire authentic “ooh’s” and “ahh’s”? RH does a bang-up job each year with all things “stocking,” marrying old-time appeal with modern-day curiosity. Even your video game-obsessed progeny will be impressed. (Get these items at RH locations or at RH.com.)
