Promising review: "Super cute pieces that are identical to the photos provided. The wide range of styles and designs make it so there is a perfect clip for every outfit. These don’t give me a headache and hold all my hair nicely. I have some thick and curly hair and these do a great job!" —Hannah Wells

Get a 20-piece set from Amazon for $9.99.

2. A patch sweatshirt just begging to be part of their loungewear wardrobe. It's super warm, has a comfy shape perfect for layering, and a cute alien patch. They'll love wearing this whenever they relax at home or go for nature walks outside.

I personally own this sweatshirt and I wear it all the time! It goes well with joggers and leggings and it's my go-to piece of clothing whenever I'm relaxing at home or spending solo time outdoors.

Promising review: "I love these shirts, I got the black alien and the white wave shirt. They fit perfect and have held up (as well as the designs) through lots of washes. I wear these out during the day and I also wear them to bed sometimes because they’re so comfy. ❤️" —sara

Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes XS—XL and in 34 styles).

3. A teddy coat to keep them nice and toasty when it's chilly outside. This piece of outerwear gives all the cozy feels and has spacious pockets for their cell phone, keys, and wallet.

Promising review: "This jacket is so comfortable to wear, and also surprisingly warm. I was not expecting that I could brave the snow with this jacket, but I was so warm and comfortable, I haven't even had the need to bust out my heavy duty winter coat because this is warm enough. The best part is that this jacket is so much cheaper than every other teddy jacket out there, and still stylish and comfy. I also love that the pockets are quite deep, I was able to fit quite a bit into the pockets which is super nice." —Minah

Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in sizes S—3XL and in 33 colors).

4. A pair of suede boots that'll match everything in their closet (even dresses they still want to wear during the winter) and still be comfy to walk in when it's cold outside.

Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

Promising review: "These are seriously the cutest fall/winter boot. And what a bargain for the quality of these! They don't fall down at the thigh but also aren't overly tight and uncomfortable. They are definitely true to size so I would recommend ordering the same size you normally do." —Gabriella

Get them from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in sizes 5—10 and in 14 colors).

5. A face mask chain for the friend who's always dropping or losing their face mask. This gold chain is super pretty, fits comfortably around their neck, and securely holds onto their face mask when they have to (briefly) take it off. They won't have to worry about it falling on the ground or getting dirty whenever they're on the go.

Promising review: "I like the light weight and delicate feel of this chain mask lanyard. Looks good and is so convenient. I threw away lots of masks because I dropped them and that made them unusable. Now I don't have to worry every time I put my mask on. Thank you." —Etsy Customer

Get it from AnchorAccessoriesCo on Etsy for $6.38 (available in two sizes and in five colors).

6. A fleece-lined hoodie because they can stay super cozy and not worry about hair damage. There is satin lining in the hood that feels like a soft pillow and helps remove friction (buh-bye breakage and dryness).

Promising review: "This was a really a really comfy sweater. It is came really soft right out of the package. I ordered a size large, but I could have fit into a size medium, but I didn't want to return it, and I like my sweater a little bit bigger anyway. I was not disappointed at all with this sweater which will be in heavy rotation this winter." —Lynn Wright

Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S—XXL and in 19 styles).

8. Polarized sunglasses with a sleek shape that are great for everyday wear. If they're headed to the beach or simply spending time outside, these babies will shield their eyes from the sun and go with everything in their wardrobe.

Promising review: "I haven't ever owned retro-style sunglasses until now, and the reason is that I had never found any that are as durable, and well made as these ones! The reflective lenses not only look super cool and trendy, but they give your eyes really good protection from the sun and they don't scratch super easily like other sunglasses I've owned. They look way more expensive than they are, and they come in a really durable case as well." —Ashtin Scott

Get them from Amazon for $13.93 (one size fits all, available in six colors).

9. A pair of comfy bike shorts they'll want to wear for running errands and working out. They're made with a soft fabric, have UPF 45+ protection, and won't ride up.

Girlfriend Collective

Promising review: "I was so excited to buy these, mainly because I hardly ever buy anything new because of sustainability concerns, so I was super excited for these! Even better, they fit like a glove and are so comfy. I love working out in these and just wearing them leisurely. I need them in every color." —Girlfriend Collective Customer

Get them from Girlfriend Collective for $48 (available in sizes XXS—6XL and in nine colors).

10. A quilted cross-body for the person who's always like "where are my keys, phone, and credit card" on repeat. Three pockets make organizing a breeze and they won't need to spend so much time looking for important essentials anymore.


Promising review: "I ordered the black and was so pleased once I began putting my usual items in the compartments. This has three compartments and I put my wallet/business card holder in the middle one. The front compartment is for my cosmetics — lipstick, compact mirror, eye drops, and lip balm. The back compartment was able to accommodate my readers and sunglasses, yet the purse is still lightweight and not bulky. A place for everything and everything in its place. It's not real leather but the quilting gives it a high-end look. The strap is easy to adjust and and the flap with the latch that goes over all three compartments gives it an added security. Each compartment has a great quality zipper. I can actually stay organized in a small handbag! Highly recommend. It can be for daily casual use or dressy." —AdalineB

Get it from Amazon for $15.98 (available in seven colors).

11. An open front cardigan that'll be ~purrfect~ for in between weather days. Whether they're going to a winery or dining al fresco, they won't feel too hot or cold in this closet staple. Plus, they can layer bodysuits, camis, and more tops underneath.

Amazon, Amazon / Via

Promising review: "I’ve been wanting a leopard sweater for awhile and was very impressed with the quality of this sweater. I got this in a large and it's a bit big, but I wanted it oversized and comfy. It's the perfect length for leggings and pairs well with black pants or jeans. The material is soo soft and I got so many compliments when I wore this for my birthday. I now want one in every color!" —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in sizes S—XXL and in 27 colors).

12. Platform sneakers to slip into for outdoor adventures and grocery store trips. They'll dress up their jeans or joggers, and provide great cushioning (repeat after me: no more achy feet).

Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

Promising review: "I've never been much of a sneaker person except for when working out, but I've seen this style all over social media and I really liked them. I waited months before finally ordering these and now I'm kicking myself for doing so! They are not gym shoes, but rather trendy athleisure shoes, and I'm all about comfy and cute." —Amazon Customer

Get them from Amazon for $17.41+ (available in sizes 5.5—11and in 19 colors).

13. A balloon sleeve top that may be the perfect hybrid between (gasp) a blouse and a sweatshirt. Ribbed knit material will keep their bod comfy, while dot mesh sleeves elevate any look. Let's *just* think about all the outfit possibilities here...

Forever 21

Get it from Forever 21 for $24.99 (available in sizes 0X—3X).

14. A one-shoulder sports bra with moisture-wicking fabric, a supportive fit, and laser-cut detailing that'll score them major compliments during their next virtual class. On top of looking really good, they'll avoid chafing, bouncing, and feeling like a sweat puddle.

Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

Promising review: " I love this sports bra so much ever since I got it! I wear it by itself in the gym for lifting and cardio because there's no way I'm hiding this beautiful number under a shirt. The removable padding is very firm and the overall fit is snug and perfect. My boobs don't move at all.Zoda

Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in sizes S—XXL and in five colors).

15. An embroidered baseball hat for anyone who basically lives in athleisure. The strap is completely adjustable too, in case they want to wear their hair up. All they need is an oversized hoodie, bike shorts, and a cap with a cute pineapple or "As If" patch to complete the look.

Pink, black, and green baseball caps with different patches on the front

Love other accessories like berets and fanny packs? This Brooklyn-based business also has you (and everyone else on your list) covered with their cute products.

Promising review: "I ordered the charcoal hat with the Great Wave patch, and it's absolutely gorgeous! Love the fact that the hat is adjustable. "One-size-fits-all" hats ironically NEVER fit me, LOL. But with a bit of adjusting (the strap in the back can be made longer or shorter), this hat fit me perfectly! Super happy with this purchase, and definitely planning on buying more." —Etsy Customer

Get it from WildflowerandCompany on Etsy for $20 (available in nine colors and 65 patch options).

16. An Orolay parka that'll be their go-to outerwear when winter hits. A midi-length, fleece-lined hood, and roomy pockets will help them conquer cold temperatures in style.

Promising review: "This coat is no joke. The coldest temperature I tested it out was 9 degrees and I did not feel like I was freezing at all! I even tried to wear with just a T-shirt, no sweaters/layers underneath, to see if I felt cold...nothing. No cold! Boomshakalaka! It's also so stylish, roomy, has a thousand pockets (goodbye purse!) and looks different from all the rest out there." —Zhure

Get it from Amazon for $149.99+ (available in sizes XXS—5X and in 13 colors).

17. Platform oxfords just begging to be part of your sister's winter shoe lineup. Their gorgeous oxblood color will literally go with everything in her closet — blazers, baby blue denim, mini skirts, the possibilities are endless. Plus, they're super comfy for walking!

Promising review: "The shoe was comfortable as soon as I put it on. I got compliments on them every where I went, so cute with dresses, shorts, and jeans, they go with everything. I love them so much I bought the oxblood color for the fall." —Karyn B Bell

Get them from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes 5—10 and in five colors).

18. A tie-dye loungewear set because they need something comfy to wear during WFH hours. When they don't feel like dressing up, this sweatshirt and joggers combo will ~get the job done~.


Promising review: "I purchased a medium in the tie-dye blue and white set. The pants fit very nicely, and the shirt also fits great. Both pieces mix and match with other items in my closet easily. The quality of the fabric is great! I was very surprised to see the inside of the set has a nice soft lining, and the outside is a very good soft fabric. Highly recommend." —Emerson & Amy

Get the set from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 29 colors).

19. A cropped pullover sweater that'll easily transition their outfits from fall to winter. Tuck it into high-rise jeans, layer it over a cami, or pair with a suede skirt and tights for easy cold weather dressing.

Promising review: "Love the fit of this. I am normally a small in Target tops and got the small here. It is definitely cropped, so if you’d want a more baggy fit, I’d suggest getting a size up from your normal size. Love the color and the sleeves. I’m sure I’ll wear this a ton this season with high-waisted jeans and skirts. Would get it in more colors!" —Target Customer

Get it from Target for $25 (available in sizes XS—4X and in 10 colors).

20. Stretchy, high-rise trousers with roomy pockets and a tie waist for their wardrobe. They come in earthy colors (like army green and sky blue), that'll work well with turtleneck tops, blouses, and tees.

Promising review: "These could both be dressed up to the office, or casual with flats on the weekend. Let me say this. Most comfortable pants ever. They are a bit of a stretch material so lots of room to work with. I plan on purchasing a couple more. Great quality and a staple for any closet." —Ema

Get them from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes XS–3X, in sets of two, and in 49 colors).

21. A smart bracelet so versatile for everyday wear and helpful when it comes to safety. Inside the charm, there's a button that'll notify up to five contacts about their exact GPS location if they need assistance. All they have to do is press twice to alert their parents, bestie, or S.O. should something come up.

Get it from InvisaWear for $149.

22. A casual T-shirt dress that'll come in handy when the weather is sooo unpredictable. Still a bit chilly? They can layer it with an open cardigan if they feel cold. Plus, they can totally wear it alone when it's spring or summer again.

Promising review: "This dress is practical, comfortable, and attractive. One can dress it up or down. I like it so well, I think I'll get the long-sleeved version also, and order other colors too." —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $20.91+ (available in sizes XS—3X and in 30 colors).

23. A soft beanie because they'll need something a bit warmer than a baseball cap during the winter months. Their head and ears won't freeze if they're going shopping or spending time on the slopes.

Model wears dark blue teddy beanie with burnt orange trench coat

Promising review: "This beanie is so soft, so comfy, and has the perfect slouch. It's not too tight after extended wear, like a lot of beanies can be, but still stays on your head and it doesn't give ferocious hat hair. Plus, it's just cute." —Everlane Customer

Get it from Everlane for $35 (available in five colors).

24. A graphic tee for the person who is always wearing a white T-shirt-and-jeans uniform. (Name anything in fashion more practical than a classic tee!) With a fun print and comfy silhouette, they can't go wrong with this artsy-meets-minimal essential.

Promising review: "This is my new favorite T-shirt. First time wearing it out, I received so many compliments. When ordering, I really didn’t know what to expect from the sizing, but after reading the reviews I decided to choose an extra large due to everyone saying it was kind of crop-toppy, which is very true." —Sarah DaVitte

Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in sizes S—XXL and in 16 colors).

25. Sheer ankle socks so they can seamlessly slide into open-toe shoes and give their feet a glow-up. We're seriously loving this semi-transparent floral design below.

26. Baggy overalls that are so comfy and versatile, they'll be thinking "where have you been all my life?" Plus, their turtlenecks, baby T-shirts, and other basic tops will look so great underneath them.

Amazon, Amazon / Via

Promising review: "I'm going to be wearing these overalls every day for the next month because they are just that comfortable, yet stylish. These are perfect for my busy work day (with uncommonly deep pockets) and fabulous enough to dress up for the night (since my friends have called it 'the pinnacle of fashion' and 'for women of the future'). Finally, the perfect outfit staple for a do-it-all kinda gal." —Sarah

Get them from Amazon for $32.75 (available in sizes XXS–XXL and in four styles).

27. Chelsea boots because they'll need a stylish shoe that they A) can comfortably walk in and B) put up with slushy and wet surfaces. These babies will go great with high-rise jeans, dresses, and jumpsuits and they have amazing traction.

Get them from Dr. Martens for $150 (available in sizes 5—12 and also in cherry red).

28. And a grid-patterned scarf that's basically a chic blanket and so great for cold days. They'll get to keep their neck warm *and* brighten up their outfit.

Promising review: "Love these scarves! They're super soft and comfy, very warm especially when wrapped a couple times, and they're long enough that you can do that. They’re made really well, stitched hems so nothing falls apart, and they don’t shed heavily on black clothes which is great. My sister and I got these two to share and were very happy with them, especially for the price you can’t beat this purchase." —Rebecca

Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (one size fits all, available in 13 styles).
