One of my favorite months of the year is December. It isn’t because of the end of tournament season, but because of the holidays. I’ll let you in on a little secret: Christmas morning is the best day of my year. I love the hustle and bustle of shopping for the right gift, then experiencing that Christmas morning surprise feeling as the unwrapping commences. Here are my top five simple holiday resources for finding the perfect stocking stuffers and gifts. Happy holidays!

Add a touch of sparkle to your holiday look with a lady’s ceramic watch from TAG Heuer. I love the white color, which goes with everything and has small diamonds that add a subtle shine.

Empty Vase always creates the most stunning arrangements for and festive occasion. For a small holiday gathering or a New Year’s Eve soiree, with Empty Vase you can never go wrong.

The ever-popular Henri Bendel is known for their accessories, and here I can find everything from gorgeous jewelry to adorable wallets to give as gifts. I usually get lost in their Fifth Avenue boutique or their Beverly Center store.

Anything from Isabel Marant or Rick Owens is always a home run.

I turn to my premium line of gummy candies, Sugarpova, for stocking stuffers. Tennis fans will love the sporty pack we launched this holiday, which come with three different types of colorful mini-tennis balls. This is a quick and cute item to pick up for a candy connoisseur. Make sure you join Pova Perks, our new exclusive candy club when you visit Sugarpova.com; you’ll received tons of prizes and treats.
