    13. A three-strand brass necklace set that's basically three gifts in one. Your bestie can sport this layered as a full set of three, or switch it up by wearing just one or two of the chic, vintage-inspired necklaces when they feel like it.

    14. A pair of drawstring joggers because it's never a bad idea to give the gift of *über*-comfortable sweats. They'll love lounging in these after a long day of work, or even running to the grocery store, because these are just too stylish not to show off.

    15. A pair of retro-inspired balloon-leg jeans with a fitted waist and loose legs, to give the vintage lover in your life that effortless '80s look (minus all the neon, of course). They can easily dress these jeans up with a nice top and some boots, or keep it simple with a tee and sneakers on more casual days.

    16. A color-block leather card case for that friend who refuses to carry a bulky wallet and just shoves their cards and ID in their pockets...and thus always ends up losing track of their valuables. This slim, easy-to-carry case is perfect for holding just a few cards, and won't make pants pockets or a mini bag look bulky.

    17. An oversized plaid cocoon overcoat that will keep them warm, cozy, and oh so stylish for all the chilly months. The only time they might put this coat away is in the height of summer, but the moment the temperature drops to 65, they're pulling this baby out again — it's just that gorg.

    18. A smocked top for that friend who has to go back into the office soon but only has a closet full of loungewear. This stylish top is the perfect blend of class and comfort, so they can feel like they're wearing a soft sweater but still be work appropriate.

    19. A reversible puffer that's perfect for your stylish friend who lives in an area with unpredictable winter weather — they can switch the coat around whenever they need a bit more warmth. The Sherpa side is perfect on a dry, chilly day, and the waterproof quilted side will keep them dry when the rain sets in. And don't worry, there are pockets on both sides.

    20. A vintage-styled maxi skirt made with recycled fabric for your friend who loves a year-round capsule wardrobe. This lightweight skirt is perfect for the spring and summer months, but can also be paired with some boots, tights, and a soft sweater during the winter.
