The best part of Christmas for me is scouring for gifts to fill a stocking—slightly fancy goods that I might not buy every day but that are destined to last. Here are 10 that we would happily give (and receive).  Above: Riding the current interest in activated charcoal, Portland-based Otter & Wax have created the  Charasu Bar Soap ; $8 in three scents: citrus, conifer and cedar. Above: The  Ito Bindery Memo Block  (L) and Small Pad (R) are made by a 75-year-old Japanese book binding company; $28 and $14, respectively, from Canoe. (Their larger pads are too big for a stocking but equally gift-worthy.) Above: The  Super Choc-O-Food  bar is a collaboration between Valerie Confections and LA design firm, Commune. The oversize chocolate bar is filled with nuts and fruits and packs a punch with its three brightly colored hand-stamped label packaging: $20 from Valerie Confections. Above: The new pencil du jour—the  Blackwing Palomino Pencil  with replaceable eraser. In a box of 12; $21.95 from OK Store. Above:  Tenugui , the multipurpose Japanese cotton cloth can be used in a myriad of ways—as a napkin, towel, scarf, and even wrapping paper; $14 from Tortoise store.   Above: Bring the outdoors in with this  Campfire Incense  by Juniper Ridge; $12 each from the General Store. Available in three scents: sage, sweetgrass and douglas fir. Above: A brass  Oversized Key Ring  big enough to be worn on the wrist; $18 from Schoolhouse Electric.   Above: The newly launched brand ILA's wood-fired Vermont  Maple Syrup  is worth it for the chic black glass packaging alone, but better still, it tastes as good as it looks; $28 from ILA. Above: Cork up opened bottles of wine during the holidays with these maple  Wooden Bottle Rock  stoppers; $22 each from the Brush Factory. Above: This indispensable Keyboard Brush  comes with both a supple bristle and a softer one to get into all the corners of a keyboard; $16 from Brookfarm General Store.  Finally, growing up in the UK our family tradition was a tangerine in the bottom of the stocking (it was the least appealing gift). In recent years I have upgraded the citrus tradition replacing it with tins of June Taylor's Candied Citrus Peel .  If you are looking for some gift-giving inspiration, check out our 2015 Gift Guides , and for the horticulturally inclined, see Gardenista's 2015 Stocking Stuffers .  More Stories from Remodelista Table of Contents: Holidays Abroad Current Obsessions: SF Market Gift Guide 2015: Gifts for the Host Under $50
