1. A super soft cardigan, because that's always a safe choice. Don't know their exact size? Go with a cardigan. Not sure what their style is? A cardigan is everyone's style. What's the one clothing item they can never have enough of? CAR 👏 DI 👏 GAN.


Promising review: "The small is still very roomy, but it's also really soft, a perfect length and a great thickness (not too thin, not too thick). It also seems to be really well made. I definitely recommend for layering this fall/winter!" —PNW

Price: $79.95 (available in XS-XXL and four colors)

2. A chic belt with an oval buckle that manages one of the toughest style feats: looking super trendy without trying too hard.

Promising review: "Size is exactly as expected. The belt itself is a bit thinner in person than the image online (in my opinion) but does not take away from the quality." —Heather

Price: $19.99+ (available in sizes XS-L and three colors)

3. A pair of leggings so buttery smooth and stretchy they might just be tempted to sleep in them. They come in five colors, but the shiraz red feels like a particularly festive moment.


Price: $29.95 (available in sizes XS-XXL and five colors)

4. Or these high-rise moisture-wicking leggings for all the fitness queens on your list. They even have pockets, so they can store their phone, gym membership card and whatever else healthy people carry around with them.


Promising review: "I run a lot so these leggings are a must. I own about six of them. They are so comfortable and the pockets make them ideal to put a cellphone and keys while you are running. These leggings keep you cool even when you are working hard. I love them." —Asha

Price: $32.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and 10 colors)

5. A cowl neck dress that seriously looks too chic to be under $70. Its drapey fit means the sizing doesn't have to be just right, and that shade of "secret plum purple" is perfect for this time of the year.


Price: $69.95 (available in sizes XS-XXL and two colors)

6. A pair of joggers since they probably haven't worn real pants since March... and have probably had the same sweats since high school.


Price: $44.95 (available in sizes XS-XXXL and three colors)

7. And a matching hoodie to complete their new favorite work-from-home look.


Price: $49.95 (available in sizes XS-XXXL and three colors)

8. A fleece onesie-jumpsuit-pajama hybrid that will make them want to cozy up by the fire while sipping hot cocoa... so maybe also gift them some hot cocoa. And a fireplace.

The machine-washable one-piece also includes a tie waistband for a more customized fit.

Price: $69.95 (available in two sizes)

9. A cozy pair of holiday socks because we've all reached that point in adulthood where we realize socks are actually an incredibly practical and useful gift.


Price: $6.95 (available in seven colors)

10. A ridiculously cute jumpsuit that basically looks like a breezy spring day in clothing form. Plus, jumpsuits alleviate the stress of trying to put a full outfit together, and this year has been stressful enough.


Promising review: "The material is lovely and soft, it hangs well and is very comfortable to wear. The style and fit is likely to suit most shapes. I love it." —fstella

Price: $29.99+ (available in sizes 0-20 and two patterns)

11. A cami dress that's as breezy, flowy and laidback as their personality. And perhaps most importantly of all — it has pockets!


Price: $55.99 (available in sizes XS-XXL)

12. A pair of dinosaur slippers for the toddler who likes to kick their feet up after a long day of having zero responsibilities. They're so fuzzy you might just end up trying to squeeze your feet into them.

Price: $21 (available in sizes S-XL)

13. A flowing midi skirt with a side-tie detail that will make them forget about every other skirt they own. Plus, that leopard print version would be the trendiest thing in Carole Baskin's closet.


Price: $69.95 (available in sizes XS-XXL and four patterns)

14. A sleek button-up shirt for the rare times they decide to dress up for an important Zoom call. It's made with an untucked fit so they can still keep it casual, because the collar is really all that matters.

Price: $49.95 (available in sizes XS-XXL)

15. A pair of smartphone-friendly gloves for the friend who would rather get frostbite than put away their phone. They're designed with a small slit in each finger, so they can scroll through TikTok or swipe through Tinder with ease.


Price: $19.95 (available in five colors)

16. A cozy baby outfit that will immediately transform them into a cuddly bear cub. The full-zip design and tiny pockets make it incredibly useful, but it's really all about those adorable ears on the hood.

Price: $49.95 (available in six sizes and four colors)

17. A pair of jeggings for the times they want to feel put-together but can't be bothered to put on their real jeans. They even have hidden front-pocket panels to give a sleek, smooth look at the waistband and mimic the look of real denim.

Promising review: "These are my first pair of 'jeggings.' As a true denim lover I was resistant to crossing over, but these have truly made a convert of me! Soft, stretchy and have a believable jean look to them. They do run about a half size small in the waist, so order accordingly. I actually didn't mind the tighter waist line, as it cinched everything in nicely." —Sky

Price: $59.95 (available in sizes 24-35)

18. A scarf made of recycled polyester so they can feel good about looking good.


Promising review: "I absolutely love this scarf. I haven't washed it or worn it yet, but it is so soft and beautiful. If you see the yellow plaid available, definitely pick it up. The colors are even better in person." —ArtsyEm

Price: $29.95 (available in 13 patterns)

19. A surprisingly spacious cross-body bag since nobody feels like lugging around a giant purse right now. Fill it with some hand sanitizer and masks so they can start taking it with them everywhere as soon as they get it!


Promising review: "Love the design and color! It's slim and lightweight, but big enough to fit my smartphone along with keys and cards." —WindyCityLady

Price: $39.95 (available in three colors)

20. A pack of face masks so comfortable and stylish that they'll never forget them when they leave the house. They come in a pack of three, so you can steal one and treat yo' self while you're at it.


Each mask is made with three layers of cotton and an adjustable nose piece to provide a secure fit and help prevent the dreaded glasses fog.

Promising review: "These are the most comfortable masks I've found! Usually I have issues with tightness around my ears throughout the day but not with these masks!" —Layne

Price: $10.00 for a three-pack (available in 14 color varieties)

21. A puffer vest that will keep them warm and toasty, but not sweaty and overheated. Plus, the fill, shell and lining are all made of 100% recycled materials. Who says you have to sacrifice style to be eco-friendly?!


Price: $98 (available in sizes XS-XXXL and four colors)

22. A colorful kids backpack because tie-dye had an unexpected resurgence in 2020. Even the sassiest of tweens on your list won't roll their eyes at this vibrant design! OK maybe just a little, but they'll still definitely use it.

Promising review: "My daughter really loved this backpack. Very roomy and chic!!" —Jcow

Price: $49.95

23. A pinstripe pajama set so they can finally stop wearing the same old basketball shorts to bed. The twill fabric will keep them warm all winter, but it's so comfortable they'll probably still reach for it all year.


Price: $64.95 (available in sizes XS-XXL)

24. A Star Wars hoodie so the force will be with them even in the coldest of temperatures. It's also the rare gift that's both practical enough to impress the parents yet cool enough to impress the child.


Price: $44.95 (available in sizes XS-XXL and two designs)

25. And a pawsitively adorable dog hoodie since they deserve comfortable loungewear just as much as everyone else on your list. Probably more so.


Promising review: "Such a cute hoodie in a vibrant red. It's very soft and will keep my dog warm in the cold." —Lori

Price: $39.95 (available in sizes XS-XXL and two colors)
