    Walking in the cold already sucks, so why not make it a little less painful? These will allow your loved ones to be able to reach you even as they brave the elements.

    Price: $6 (available in one size and five colors)

    2. A warm pair of boot socks for any grownup ready to admit essential garments indeed make for very thoughtful gifts. Sometimes adulting means gifting things you would have taken for granted as a child.

    They also come in cream and black.

    Price: $8 (available in one size and four colors)

    3. A half-zip sherpa sweatshirt if you’re shopping for something that’s as cozy as a jacket but maybe a little more interesting.

    Old Navy

    From “Raisin The Roof” to “Pink Paradigm,” there’s a color option for every kind of style.

    Price: $30 (available in sizes XS-XXL and 12 colors)

    4. A similar half-zip that comes in men’s sizes, and has more relaxed “mock neck.”

    The mock neck makes pullover a perfect companion piece for hoodies.

    Price: $39.99 (available in sizes XS-XXXL and four colors)

    5. An ear warmer for the diva in your life who would rather catch pneumonia than have to deal with hat hair.

    Put their vanity to good use and get them this very stylish, cozy, and functional accessory.

    Price: $12.99 (available in one size and five colors)

    6. An incredibly cute sleep mask to make bed time (or nap time) a bit more fun.

    Old Navy

    Perfect for all ages and genders, this gift is sure to put a smile on someone’s face — especially if you go with one of the animal designs. Who wouldn’t want to go to sleep as a polar bear or a puppy?

    Price: $6 (available in one size and seven colors)

    7. A long-sleeved performance top for anyone resilient enough to still be working out at home, or brave enough to already be back in the gym.

    Old Navy

    Although the "Jet Stream" teal is sold out in smaller sizes, the red, gray and black tops are still widely available.

    Promising review: "I originally got the short-sleeved version of this top, loved it so much that I ordered in more colors, and then got a few of the tank version, and now a few of the long-sleeved version. They are my go-to for exercising, but also for just hanging out."—Atlanta-ish

    Price: $17 (available in sizes XS-XXL and seven colors)

    8. A pullover hoodie for anyone who doesn’t have a romantic partner to steal one from this winter — lonely people get cold too.

    Reviewers suggest sizing up on this one, as the sleeves tend to run a little short.

    Promising review: "I took everyone's advise and ordered in tall. OMG I love it!!! So soft and fits great. Will be getting more colors."—Lisa Marie

    Price: $35 (available in sizes XS-XXL and 10 colors)

    9. A gender neutral soft-wash tee, since most people forget to stock up on basics for themselves.

    Old Navy

    This crew-neck tee comes in teal, rustic gray, and “Babe the Blue Ox” — which is just a slightly cooler way of saying “baby blue.”

    Price: $10 (available in sizes XS-XL)

    10. A breezy tie-dye tee for people who think summer lasts all year long. Sometimes the best gift is one that completely ignores the holiday season altogether.

    This relaxed scoop-neck tee is mostly sold out in indigo, but is still widely available in the rainbow print pictured above.

    Price: $12 (available in sizes XS-XXL)

    11. A pair of thermal-knit, snow leopard lounge pants that look as good as they feel.

    Old Navy

    The “no white after Labor Day” rule gets a little confusing when it comes to winter whites. Don’t quote me on this, but I think you qualify as an exception if you look super hot in a sexy pair of mid-rise joggers (but they also come in black, grey, and navy blue just in case).

    Price: $24.99 (available in sizes XS-XXL)

    12. A downright adorable pom-pom hat. I suggest buying this for anyone who frequently pisses you off. Because who could possibly stay mad at someone with a fuzzy little ball on their head?

    Also, it makes for a pretty good target in case you ever want to throw something at them.

    Price: $8 - $10 (available in one size and eight colors)

    13. And a fringed scarf to match the pom-pom hat! Everyone loves a good hat-and-scarf combo.

    Seriously, I bet you can’t name one time you saw someone with a matching hat and scarf and didn’t reconsider your whole winter wardrobe.

    Price: $16 - $18 (available in one size and eight colors)

    14. A ridiculously festive pair of pajama pants for anyone who loves the holidays! These pants come in 20 different prints — because why stop at elves when you can also have llamas??

    There are also candy canes, snowflakes, Santa Clauses of color (!!!!), and so much more.

    Promising review: "I bought two of these pants and love them! I love how soft and comfy they are! I LOVE the fact that they are 100% cotton."—Jamie

    Price: $18 (available in sizes XS-XXL)

    15. And a pair of boxer pajama shorts in case the person you’re shopping for isn’t a fan of too much fabric.

    Old Navy

    These shorts come in many of the exact same prints as the pajama pants. With so many options, if you can’t find SOME type of sleepwear to get your loved one in the holiday spirit, they might just need to take a trip to Whoville.

    Price: $10 (available in sizes XS-XXL and 19 colors)

    16. A fuzzy sweatshirt that’ll feel like a warm hug all winter — because it’s cheaper than therapy and safer than actually touching someone these days.

    A woman wearing a dark yellow sherpa sweatshirt
    Old Navy

    This comfortable top is available in a handful of earth tones, including beige, copper, and forest green.

    Promising review: "As soon as I opened my package and tried this on I didn't want to take it off! It is so soft and warm and cute! It does tend to hit around the waist (even if you pull it down it goes back up) but I wore it over a flannel button up with jeans and it looked great!"—Ally

    Price: $30 (available in sizes XS-XXL in nine colors)

    17. A pair of thermal pajama leggings in case you’re in search of a more practical gift for someone whose style you aren't very familiar with.

    Old Navy

    You can take a risk here and go super cheerful with the candy cane print, or opt for something basic like the all black leggings. Either way, whoever you buy these for will have the option of throwing pants on over them as they layer up for the winter.

    Promising review: "I love this PJ set! I got the small pants instead of the mediums because I wanted them to fit like leggings (which I think they are designed to be) and not loose PJ bottoms. The inseam is long and they are high-waisted, so if you decide to size up you'll be trading looseness for an even higher waisted pant. So I would say if you love wearing leggings, then get your normal leggings size. If you don't want the leggings look, then size up."—Tori

    Price: $18.97 (available in sizes XS-XXL and 19 colors)

    18. A slim-fit henley tee that they’ll still wear after the weather breaks. This rib-knit shirt can be layered underneath something a bit more cozy during the winter, and also worn on its own during the spring.

    Old Navy

    This tee comes in mostly neutral colors with the one exception of a super vibrant electron red. Pick wisely, although you can’t go wrong either way.

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this! According to their size chart, I'm an XL. However, I could have actually sized down. Even though it's a slim fit, I find that it's plenty roomy and comfortable. The slim fit does make for a nice silhouette without being skin tight. The V-neck is not too low at all on me and I find the length to be perfect."—Mrs. J

    Price: $18 (available in sizes XS-XXL and 11 colors)

    19. A fleece snood for anyone still complaining about how face masks keep ruining all their outfits. Now they can pull this warm accessory over their N95 and shut the hell up.

    It comes in just enough colors to match virtually any jacket — so, again, tell them to shut the hell up.

    Price: $8 (available in one size and eight colors)

    20. A variety earring set in case you’re taking a stab in the dark and have no idea what sort of jewelry they like.

    Old Navy

    Each pair in this three-pair set is so distinct that the person you’re buying them for is bound to like at least one, if not all three!

    Price: $9.99

    21. A tried and true cuffed beanie for the fashionably lazy hipster in your life. A plain and occasionally multi-seasonal staple in some people’s wardrobes, it’s clear these things will NEVER go out of style — which is why they always make for effective gifts.

    Old Navy

    This gender neutral beanie comes in classic cool kid colors like traffic cone orange and neon green, as well as more subtle colors like black and cream white.

    Price: $10 (available in one size and four colors)

    22. A long and baggy open-front sweater that’s perfect for both extroverts and introverts. Do they need something warm to wear outside? Well, this’ll work. Do they need something comfortable to lounge in as they eat holiday leftovers and binge watch whatever show they haven’t stopped Tweeting about all month? Also works.

    Old Navy

    It comes in six simple colors, including ruby red and chocolate brown.

    Promising review: "Love this sweater! I bought teal and brown. Flat knit and simple design, so it's nice enough to sub for a blazer on Zoom calls. Also looks great with jeans or sweats. Warm and lightweight. Generous sizing. Cozy and versatile."—Julie B

    Price: $35 (available in sizes XS-XXL)

    23. An oversized plaid flannel if they’re REALLY serious about their autumn aesthetics — and it comes in six different prints!

    No apple-picking photo on Instagram is completely without a good plaid shirt and some fashionable denim.

    Promising review: "Runs true to size. Beautiful vibrant burgundy mixed with blue and white looks lovely with blue jeans and boots, and it is so soft! Glad I bought this one."—Nicole

    Price: $25 (available in sizes XS-XXL)

    24. A pair of soft-brushed moccasin slippers they'll always remember you for when they tip-toe around the house.

    Old Navy

    These best-selling slippers are lined with faux fur, and also come in red buffalo plaid.

    Price: $18 (available in women's sizes 6-10)

    25. A "bang for your buck" two-pack of long-sleeve tees to make it seem like you spent more on someone's gift than you actually did.

    Old Navy

    It’s the thought that counts — and you just so happened to think of a way to buy someone two quality basics for the price of one. These grey and olive shirts are a steal.

    Price: $20 (available in sizes XS-XXL)

    26. A very warm trapper hat for anyone who puts function over fashion. Do trapper hats look cool? Depends on who you ask. Will someone’s head EVER be cold when they wear one? Absolutely not.

    You can even go full outdoorsman with this one and purchase it in red buffalo plaid.

    Price: $15 (available in one size)
