1. A chunky-knit cardigan that's best described as, "fuzzy blanket, but make it fashion." Since it has an open-front design, you can't really go wrong with the sizing.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "After months of wear and heavy washing it looks the same as the day I got it. I wear this ALL the time around the house and use it daily. Really great purchase.

This sweater is honestly year-round material. It's light enough for air conditioning in the summer and warm enough to layer in the winter."Sheepdogs&Poodles=SheepaDoodles

Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and 31 colors).

2. An oversized duster cardigan they'll want to wrap themselves in all winter long. It's meant to provide a loose fit, so you don't have to worry about knowing their exact size.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "These sweater/dusters are just what the doctor ordered. I bought two in neutral colors (gray and dark red) to throw on at work when it gets chilly (i.e. nearly all the time). They are soft and drape beautifully, and they let people see most of what I'm actually wearing underneath — but they still keep me just warm enough. A surprise bonus: They are even softer after washing! Very happy with this purchase." —xtsigs

Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in sizes 4-26 and 21 colors).

3. A flowing poncho-style shawl if they like a touch of ~drama~ with every outfit. It's also reversible, so they'll basically get two gifts in one!

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I purchased this wrap as a Christmas gift for my sister-in-law. She fell in love with it immediately. She said it was lightweight, yet very warm and she just loved it." —Glenda Tyler

Get it from Amazon for $32.92+ (available in 29 colors).

4. Or a scarf that can also double as a shawl, so they'll basically always have a built-in blanket on them.

Amazon

Promising review: "Just as described, soft and pretty. Best thing is that it does not wrinkle. It's big enough to wrap as a shawl and the fabric is thin enough to double over as a long scarf without looking too bulky." —Mandy Evans

Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in 17 colors).

5. A pair of gorgeous hoop earrings with a brass half-circle design that will go with basically every one of their outfits.

Promising review: "Absolutely gorgeous and super well-made. Received many compliments already." —Brittany

Get it from StudioLaTouche Etsy for $36.

6. A bestselling chain-style necklace that might just be the missing *link* in their wardrobe.

Baublebar

It's available in both silver and gold, and the hypoallergenic material means you won't have to worry about accidentally gifting them with an allergic reaction.

Get it from Baublebar for $48 (available in two colors).

7. A customizable bar necklace you can have engraved with their name, because self-love never goes out of style.

awin1.com

You can choose between gold, silver and rose gold.

Promising review: "I got it almost a month ago and wanted to put it to the test before leaving a review. It is perfect and the engraving is exactly what I asked for and prettier than expected. I've had it on since the day it came. Workouts (super sweaty), showers, sleeping. I haven't taken it off AT ALL. And it's still just as great as it was as the day I opened the box. No scratches, tarnishing, or discoloration." —Dorian Turner

Get it from something2share on Etsy for $9+ (available in three colors).

8. A sleeveless cardigan that's perfect for layering in the winter. Since it's sleeveless, they'll still be reaching for it through the early days of spring.

Amazon

Promising review: "First off, I have to say I am very picky when it comes to clothing. Going to the store is a dreaded experience for me. I was hesitant to order online but to my surprise this cardigan exceeded all my expectations. Wonderful fabric, Flows nicely and a perfect fit." —Pandagirl

Get it from Amazon for $18.86 (available in sizes S-XXL and 16 colors).

9. A small yet spacious backpack they'll reach for every time they run out of the house to run essential errands. It comes with five interior pockets, so they'll have room to stash everything from their phone to their lip balm.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "Wanted to use this quite a bit before I did a review to see how it would hold up, so I did and I love it! I'm not one to drop more than $30 on a purse/shoulder bag, so this was such a steal.

It's a perfect size and I can fit my Canon, wallet, a water bottle, another film camera, sunscreen, AND THEN some! I can even fit a hoodie in there on top of all that. I love the extra divider/pocket/zipper spot. Makes it easier to find the important things without digging around like your phone, money, or ChapStick." —shnt

Get it from Amazon for $23.99 (available in four colors).

10. A pair of huggie earrings that that they'll think you spent 5x the price on.

Get it from Amazon for $13.95 (available in three colors).

11. A pack of printed face masks from Madewell, because they can never have too many.

Madewell

Promising review: "I've accumulated a lot of masks over the last few months, but I think these are my favorite. I love the adjustable straps, they're so easy to use and are such a game-changer in assuring a good fit. The fabric is light and comfortable. The colors are true to the photos." —Kimm

Get a three-pack from Madewell for $24 (available in four different color varieties).

12. An initial necklace that'll quickly become their go-to signature accessory.

Anthropologie

Promising review: "Exactly what I was hoping for! Simple and sleek, love this piece as a little elevation to any everyday outfit. I was worried it would be smaller than I wanted, but it’s a perfect size." —KMOB

Get it from Anthropologie for $38 (available in 26 letters).

13. A beanie with an impressive 41,000 reviews to keep them equal parts toasty and trendy. It's a hit with both men and women, so you can basically buy one for everyone on your list.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "The fit is snug to the point that I can sling it back without it falling off and it fits over my Afro or straight hair the same and doesn't lose its stretch after washing." —CE.

Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in 28 colors).

14. A sparkling tennis bracelet that will only cost you about $15, but will make them feel like a million bucks.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "One of the best inexpensive jewelry purchases I've ever made. I put this on a few weeks ago the moment it arrived and haven't taken it off since. It's comfortable, shiny, and durable. I've slept in it, many showers, baking, even hot-tubbing! Not a sign of wear to the plating or prongs. Product was stiff out of the box, but after a little coaxing, all joints moved just fine." —AshleyEmCee

Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in three colors and three sizes).

15. A dainty rose gold bracelet with their birthstone, because they deserve to celebrate their birthday year-round.

awin1.com

Promising review: "This bracelet is just what I wanted: it’s dainty and subtly sparkly, but not so delicate that I can’t wear it every day. In fact, I’ve been wearing it since it arrived." —Melanie Evans

Get it from AquarianThoughts on Etsy for $34 (available in sizes XS-XL and 28 stone colors).

16. A chunky scarf that will make them feel like they're strolling through an apple orchard no matter where they go.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "Love this scarf. I bought this scarf to to be more of a fashion accessory than a practical warm scarf, but I was pleased to find out it is both. Not only does it look super cute with a sweater and leggings, under my jacket it keeps me really warm. The fabric is not itchy as I thought it was going to be; it is very soft." —Troy/Paige Anderson

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in 24 colors).

17. A bestselling belt that over 3,200 reviewers have raved over. It comes in a two-pack, so you can keep one for yourself if you end up falling in love with it.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "Normally I believe you get what you pay for with most items but these belts are far better quality than you would expect for the price. The box it came in was a nice touch too. Thick and durable, you will not be tossing this. It can be used to store your belts but I will likely use it to store some of my smaller belongings or as a nice gift box." —MomOf2

Get a pack of two from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in sizes S-XXXL and six color varities).

18. A stackable gold ring for anyone who likes their accessories to be subtle and sophisticated, but still eye-catching.

19. A surprisingly spacious weekender bag for any spontaneous (yet safe and socially-distant) road trips they may have planned.

Lulus

Promising review: "Bought this as I didn't want to travel with a large duffle bag every time I went away for the weekend. It fits quite a bit of clothes (three-four outfits with shoes) and all my overnight beauty products ... Have had this for a few years and it's still intact." —Kate K.

Get it from Lulus for $43 (available in four colors).

20. Or a sleek tote bag to carry just the essentials.

Lulua

Promising review: "I bought this as a carry-on bag for the airplane hoping it would fit my iPad, large reading book, clutch with all the essentials in it, and chargers. Everything fit perfectly, plus maybe a few snacks. The width was just perfect to slip an iPad in without much wiggle room and the bag is not oversized, which I love!!" —Angel R.

Get it from Lulus for $39 (available in five colors).

21. A classic Fossil watch that's become a hit with over 900 Amazon reviewers.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "This watch is beautiful, and I get many compliments on it! I took out most of the chains and the sizing is comfortable now. I love the delicate detailing on the face of the watch, super pretty and has an almost pearlescent finish." —Maggie

Get it from Amazon for $61.98+ (available in 14 colors).

22. A pack of eight headbands in various colors and patterns so they'll have one for every day of the week, plus an extra if they feel like a midday outfit change.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "I love these headbands! When I don't have time to do my hair, I just put one of these headbands on and it instantly makes me look put together. These are super comfortable too, unlike most headbands, I can wear these all day without any headaches." —Q

Get an eight-pack from Amazon for $12.49.

23. A pair of bestselling blue light blocking glasses for the person who spends all day working in front of their laptop and all night scrolling through TikTok.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I plan on buying these again in a different color because I love them so much. I keep them at work and wear them to prevent headaches while staring at the computer all day. I have not gotten a single headache since starting to wear these. They also look great and I have gotten a bunch of compliments." —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in 15 colors).

24. A fedora with over 13,000 reviews that will definitely upgrade their hat collection.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "All the hats I've tried were either too floppy, too small for my face or just plain uncomfortable. The brim on this hat is a perfect size to keep the sun off your face and stays perfectly in place so it won't obstruct your vision. You can adjust the sizing using a ribbon hidden in the lining, making the fit perfect even for a windy day." —Jess

Get it from Amazon for $16.45+ (available in 23 colors).

25. A pair of bestselling sunglasses for the times they get out of the house to soak up some sunshine.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I’m the person who buys a lot of sunglasses because I am never satisfied with them. These may have changed all that!

The keyhole nose cutout is amazingly comfortable. I never want to go back to those annoying little nose pad things that just break or get stuck in my hair! It also allows the sunglasses to sit comfortably slightly down on the bridge of my nose without sliding, which I prefer." —Sara buys all the things

Get it from Amazon for $10.82+ (available in 21 colors).

26. And a scarf with a two hidden pockets so they'll always have a place to store their money, keys, face mask — or even a snack.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "I purchased two of these for my sister and I to share on our trip. As long as you don’t put anything heavy in the pockets it looks like a normal scarf. We used it for our passports, some cash, lip balm, etc. but not our phones. They’re actually quite warm and I found myself wearing it as a single loop since it was in the 40s," —MMB

Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (available in 14 colors).
