A pair of faux-fur-lined stockings from Pudus has once again made the lifestyle maven's list of favourite things for the holidays.
It’s that time of year again, folks—when Oprah, the former television host and queen of all things wholesome and bright, blesses us mere mortals with a catalogue of her favourite, most gift-able goods.Which gives you a more-than-appropriate excuse to ditch the long-winded, likely still-to-be-determined holiday wish lists of your friends and fam because, really, who could possibly know better than Oprah? Not me. Not you. And certainly not your three-year-old nephew who’s yet again asking for a set of those weird, impossibly miniature Hatchimals for X-mas.Instead, why not gift the loved ones in your life an ergonomically designed deep-tissue foot massager, a tot-sized pastel-hued suitcase or a sturdy LED-equipped bicycle helmet? For the home cooks, there are three-in-one baking pans and compact corkscrews, and for the beauty junkies, goat’s-milk soaps and lychee-cranberry hand creams.Hell, there’s even something for the locavores: cozy, faux-fur-lined slipper socks from the Vancouver-based Pudus. Presented as one of O’s fave “cozy” things—and there are many of them!—the stockings come in a range of playful prints like polka dot, gingerbread men and the very Canadian lumberjack. The brand, which takes its name from the world’s most adorable deer, also makes a selection of indoor booties, mitts and other accessories—though, obvs, it’s going to be the socks you want to get your hands (feet?) on.Given Oprah’s influence, we suspect they won’t be in stock online and around town—specifically, at London Drugs—for long. In fact, this is Pudus’s second appearance on the lifestyle guru’s festive list after making its debut last year. That initial inclusion apparently inspired so many orders that the small west coast team had to work around the clock—kind of like Santa’s elves—to ensure that every child and Nice person had a pair of plush Oprah-approved socks under their tree by Christmas morning.Let’s hope they’re just as, if not more, prepared this time around.
