Believe it or not this is actually my favorite gift guide to write because, well...half of it is on my own wishlist. Buying for someone who likes to keep up with the latest can sometimes be tricky. I think you have to go about it in a way where you're not buying pieces that are too trendy. Rather, you should be looking for staples that are both in-sesaon and in-style, and will make a lasting impression in someone's closet.
1 / I just love the size and shape of this bag, and burgundy is such a nice color for this time of year. Pricey, but worth it for someone special!
2 / When I give gifts, I usually look for one big and one small thing that pair together nicely. These $12 earrings are a perfect addition to a nice sweater or dress, and would be perfect for New Years, too!
3 / Just picked up this cableknit sweater dress for work and I love it even more than I thought it would. It's a modest length and incredibly soft with no itch. Plus, the color is this season's go-to neutral.
4 / Another gift that I had on my wishlist and just received for my birthday. I wear these slippers everywhere and despite the open toe, they actually keep my feet perfectly warm and cozy.
5 / Charlotte Tilbury's "Bitch Perfect" is the neutral every girl needs. Another great smaller gift to give with something else.
6 / A bit of a splurge, but for your sister or your mom, this J.Crew sherpa coat is such a beautiful piece. Love the piping detail and the mid-length.
7 / Out with the thin, tight hair ties, in with the scrunchies! I wear these velvet/satin scrunchies religiously and they're the perfect stocking stuffer!
8 / Love this option if you're looking for something a little more fun than the traditional beanie!
9 / Recently was introduced to the Fitflop brand earlier this year and o-m-g my feet are in heaven. These are THE comfiest shoes I own hands down, and the taupe suede is absolutely perfect going into Winter.
11 / You guys know I love my Marc Fisher boots. I've been eyeing these lace-up boots all season. They also have great traction which means they'll be great through the Winter.
13 / THIS hidden gem buried on AE's site (currently under $40) is such a fun gift for a sister, friend or cousin. I recommend sizing up for an extra comfy fit.
