1. A lightweight henley that'll truly do it all for them — it looks great on its own, but also works as a breathable base layer for all their cold-weather pursuits.

Buck Mason

Get it from Buck Mason for $52 (available in sizes XS-XXL and seven colors).

2. A cashmere sweater, because they'd never make the splurge themselves and all their other sweaters have holes in them.

Promising review: "Bought this as a gift for my partner who is just over 6 ft. Was nervous about the fit as he usually has issues with sleeves being too short. This was a great fit in all ways. It is soft, warm, yet light enough to wear indoors when the weather cools down further." —Nadya

Get it from Everlane for $130 (available in sizes XS-XXL and six colors).

3. A pair of Blundstone boots they'll want to wear year-round because of how easy they are to slide on and off while still being incredibly weatherpoof.

Model wearing Blundstone unisex chelsea boots in walnut brown

Promising review: "I was a bit suspicious of the hype around there, but decided to try them after all. I needed a pair of everyday fall-winter-spring boots, so I liked the idea of extra lining because my feet are always cold. I do find them surprisingly warm. Also very comfortable, and no stress on my back or knees at all. I think if you live in a warmer climate or want more of a year-round boot, I would go with the unlined 500 version, but for me, this is precisely the kind of boot I needed. We'll see how they hold up, but so far I like them a lot." —D. West

Get them from Amazon for $130+ (available in sizes 5.5-13 and 18 colors).

4. Or, a pair of work boots that are durable enough for any job site, while still being stylish enough for their dinner plans.

reviewer wearing the Thorogood boots in black

Promising review: "I have personally never cared much for white-soled work boots. Old timers wore them and swore by them, but I always preferred the look and reliability of black vibram soles. After watching some reviews on YouTube, I decided to give them a shot for puttering around. And I am so glad I did. They do fit somewhat loosely if you buy your standard size. I'm a 9.5 wide and these fit ever-so-slightly large on me. Nothing that thicker than normal socks can't fix. Nevertheless, the build is impressive for this price point. They are comfortable immediately out of the box, and have an old school appearance that fits right in with my personal workflow. I have treated them with Obenaufs LP and this darkened them slightly, but I feel that it protected my investment that much better. The leather is thick and supple and the stitching is even and complete. Heck, even the laces are high quality. I recommend them highly and know which brand I'll turn to when I need a new pair. If you're on the fence, I'd say to go for it!" —Brett

Get them from Amazon for $194.70+ (available in sizes 5-15 including wide sizes and five colors

5. A full-zip fleece vest they can wear as a top layer when it's just a little chilly outside, or as a base layer when the time comes to truly bundle up.

reviewer wearing vest unzipped in left photo and zipped in right photo

Promising review: "Wore out my old fleece vest (8+ years) and needed to find one to replace it so onto Amazon I go. This vest popped up and for the price and ability to try it and return it if I don't like it, what the heck, $20 is worth at least a try. Well, I have to say I was surprised at the quality of the material, the quality of the construction and the fit. They had the color I wanted (Forest Green) in stock and the color matched what I thought it would be. I've been wearing the vest since it arrived a couple of days ago and so far, it's comfortable and warm." —Trebor

Get it from Amazon for $19.60+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and 19 colors/patterns).

6. A pair of flannel pajama pants for your person featuring their favorite drink. Warning: they'll love these so much, they'll probably whiskey you away on a romantic getaway as soon as they put them on and feel how soft they are.

J. Crew Factory

Promising review: "Bought these for my boyfriend just because... He wears them practically every day. So comfy and cute! The flannel isn't too heavy and the waistband is very adjustable." —Kate

Get them from J.Crew Factory for $15.50 (originally $39.50; available in sizes XS-XXL and three patterns).

7. A Ben Davis beanie, because keeping their head and ears warm isn't that deep — this one's soft, affordable, and comes in a handful of cool colors.

Ben Davis

Promising review: "Favorite piece. Ben Davis is high quality and strong. You can feel the toughness. Practically feels premium." —David

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

8. Or, a heavy knit beanie that'll round out their fits no matter the season.

Bricks & Wood

Bricks & Wood is a Black-owned business based in South Central Los Angeles. Their beanies are made in Portland, Oregon from 100% cotton.

Get it from Bricks & Wood for $48.

9. A flannel shirt that's just heavy enough, meaning they can rock it on its own or use it as an ultra-warm layer.,

Promising review: "Rarely do I take the time to write reviews, however, when a product just blows me away and pleasantly surprises me the way this shirt did, I just have to... Back in the '90s I used to collect Eddie Bauer flannel shirts, and I loved them and their quality. However, through the years, their quality has deteriorated and their shirts are just not what they used to be (while their cost has risen to near ridiculous levels). Flannel shirts are supposed to be roomy and you shouldn't have to buy one or two sizes larger just to get a classic look. Plus flannel should be thick, and warm, not thin and looking like something that won't make it past the first wash. Well this Legendary Whitetails flannel shirt addresses all those points and more than met the very highest of expectations, at a very affordable price point. Will be ordering more now." —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes S-5XL including tall sizes and 21 patterns/colors).

10. A limited-edition sweatshirt with custom embroidery because they're always looking to add unique threads to their rotation.


Promising review: "So many compliments and the fit was perfect. Highly recommend." —Alex the skier

Get it from Bonobos for $128 (available in sizes XS-XXL and five colors/graphics).

11. A classic Champion hoodie they can wear at home when they're just chillin', or out to dinner under a denim jacket — the options this hoodie presents are truly endless.

Promising review: "Saw this sweatshirt getting really popular so I figured I’d buy it! Fits a bit oversized, which is perfect because this sweatshirt should have kind of a baggy look. Very comfy and love the style and fit." —Ian

Get it from Amazon for $34.50+ (available in sizes XS-3XL and 20 color/logo options).

12. Or, a Gap hoodie in a soft-fleece knit likely to become their all-time, always-on favorite (don't just take my word for it, the review below is pretty convincing).

model wearing vintage soft hoodie in autumn orange

Promising review: "Some would say I'm a world renown hoodie connoisseur. To that I would agree. I've obtained hoodies from across the globe, yet none have surprised me as this one. I sat alone browsing the site hunting for a hoodie to add to the collection and lo and behold I came across this one. I scoured numerous reviews, each one insisting adamantly of the softness of the pullover. A hoodie couldn't be that soft right? Wrong. I sat eagerly in my chair as the doorbell rang. I did the mad dash towards the doorknob as I viciously tore it open. It was here. I gripped the package with force as I slammed it on the table. As my hand gripped the sleeve I couldn't believe it. I do not know how Gap managed to do it, but I'm convinced that they asked God himself for a piece of heavenly cloud. This is the softest material on a hoodie I've ever come across, and trust me I've been globetrotting for hoodies like Indiana Jones. As I put the hoodie on it clung to me, completing me like Peter Parker and the venom suit in Spider-Man 3. It made me feel warm and safe inside like a New York coffee shop on a rainy Tuesday. All in all, I would highly recommend this hoodie." —sailboat4

Get it from Gap for $44.95 (available in sizes XS-XXXL including tall sizes, and eight colors)

13. A pair of Woodies polarized sunglasses since they lost the more expensive pair you got them for their birthday.

reviewer wearing Woodies sunglasses while driving a car

Promising review: "Came in a nice protective case along with some goodies I wasn't expecting: Guitar pick, graphic design microfiber cloth, Woodie's sticker, and a silky smooth tie sack for the glasses. It looks professionally made, definitely on the same bar as Ray-Bans! For someone who has a small head I worried these wayfarers would look too big on me but they look great! The walnut sides are a tad lighter than pictured but honestly, they're gorgeous." —David and Jessica

Get them from Amazon for $29 (originally $40).

14. A packable puffer jacket they can fold into a little carrying bag, which makes dressing for the weather easier than ever — no matter how drastically the temps change.,

Promising review: "This jacket is super light and warm and comfortable. It fits as expected and is true to size. There is room to layer underneath but the jacket does not look or feel over-sized either. The fit looks very much like it does on the model. Perfect for Northern California winters. The style and material is attractive. Very happy with this jacket." —Memly

Get it from Amazon for $50.08+ (available in S-XXL and 23 colors)

15. A festive graphic tee guaranteed to get them in the holiday spirit.

Old Navy

Promising review: "Love these super soft men's tees for PJ tees. I got the Santa Knows print and it's great. The graphic is quite large on this tee, people would see it from a long way away if you were coming at them. It washed and dried perfectly, just a tiny bit of shrinkage in length." —EJC's mom

Get it from Old Navy for $11 (originally $14.99; available in sizes XS-XXXL and 11 graphics).

16. A pair of Ugg slippers they'll love for TV watching, mail fetching, pancake making — you name it.

These slippers feature a sheepskin lining, a premium suede upper, and a 100% leather outsole, which means these slippers = super warm and cozy.

Promising review: "For a long time I've been on a search for a good pair of winter slippers. Wasted so much money on stuff that just doesn't last, because it's made out of synthetic materials. These feel incredible! So comfy and warm. My feet do not sweat as in some synthetic slippers, and they look so good. They are a bit expensive, but if you pay a bit more once as opposed to buying a new pair of cheap slippers each season it's worth the investment. The only downside I can think of with these slippers is, if you get them, you'll be so comfortable that you won't want to leave the house. Great product! Highly recommend." —Michael

Get them from Amazon for $79.95+ (available in sizes 7-18 and five colors).

17. A plaid scarf they can use to keep their neck warm, or simply accessorize their outfits. We'll leave it up to them.

model wearing Alpine Swiss plaid scarf in gray plaid

Promising review: "I used this scarf on a trip to the northeastern United States during winter. I walked in sub-freezing weather wearing plenty of layers but only this and a beanie on my head/neck/face and I stayed warm. I'm very happy with the colors/design and the price. Would buy another." —Oscar

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in 15 colors).

18. Or, a cashmere neck warmer for the person who refuses to wear scarves for some silly reason. This is practical, discreet, and so incredibly warm.

model wearing Alex Mill cashmere neck warmer in black
Alex Mill

Get it from Alex Mill for $65 (available in four colors).

19. A pair of Nice Laundry pocket lounge shorts that are basically every positive adjective you'd want to think of when it comes to investment loungewear: comfortable, breathable, big pockets, the perfect length. I can't stop jumping for joy in mine — and I'm sure they won't, either.

Nice Laundry, Griffin Gonzales / BuzzFeed

I recently got their colorblock fun short, and I must say, they are hands-down the most comfortable lounge shorts of all time. They somehow have the breathability of nylon basketball shorts, but also have a just-warm-enough fleece-like lining that sets them apart from other athletic shorts. You can also have them personalized with a letter or symbol of your choice (and believe me, you'll need to do this because everyone in your household is going to end up purchasing multiple pairs and you'll need to be able to differentiate who's whose).

Promising review: "These shorts are absolutely incredible! I wear mine almost everyday when after I get home from work. They are so beyond comfortable. They fit true to size, are the perfect length and will be the best decision you’ve ever made to buy them. I would rate them 10 stars if I could. I have since bought two pairs of every color since my first purchase!!" —Levi V.

Get them from Nice Laundry for $42 or $49 for the personalized and customized pairs (available in sizes S-XL and four colors).

20. A pair of athletic-fit chinos if they've always struggled to find a pant that'll comfortably fit their thighs while still looking clean and tailored. And at this price, you can get them a pair for every day of the week.

reviewer wearing Amazon essential chinos in pine green

Promising review: "My new go-to pants. As someone who works out regularly I've been a big fan of athletic fit pants ever since they started hitting the market. I actually prefer these over my athletic fit dockers — they are a tad snugger in the lower leg, have more stretch, and don't seem to "grow" as much after wearing them for a few hours. Bought a few more pairs and overall I'm very happy." —doppz

Get them from Amazon for $4.50+ (available in sizes 28x28-42x36 and 21 colors).

21. A Timex weekender watch so they stop asking you what time it is once and for all — which makes this a gift for both of you.

Promising review: "I don't wear jewelry. I am not a flashy guy. I enjoy simple and usable things. This watch is perfect. The pictures on Amazon do not do it justice. It's extremely comfortable and nice looking. It is a bit thicker than I expected but that is fine, it gives the watch some heft and makes it feel more premium but not so heavy that it's noticeable. It does have the light blue Indiglo light that lights the entire watch face up from behind. It's a soft dim glow just enough for low or no light situations. The band is very comfortable. The watch is water-resistant down to a certain depth that I have not tried. The band goes from the olive green to dark green when wet. The darkness does go away fairly quickly. I really like this watch. For the price it's wonderful. I highly recommend this watch as an everyday watch." —K. Cart

Get it from Amazon for $41+ (available in 16 colors).

22. A fleece shirt jacket for the person who refuses to admit they're cold. Now, instead of lying through their chattering teeth, they'll be able to stay toasty wherever their day takes them.

Promising review: "I requested this product for my husband. He loves gray and he loves fleece button-ups for cool fall days (T-shirt underneath) and chilly winter days (long sleeve underneath most likely). He's one of those warm blooded boys who only wears a jacket when it's 25 degrees or less. These sorts of shirts keep him plenty warm. It's really well made stitching wise and the material is absolutely soft and warm. He loves it! Highly recommended." —Rebekah

Get it from Amazon for $17.60+ (available in 12 colors).

23. A made-to-order denim chore jacket they'll get years (probably decades) of wear out of. A jacket of this quality is sure to become an heirloom, and it'll slowly become their own as they add pins, patches, and food stains.

Glenn's Denim

Glenn's Denim is a Black-owned business based in New York City. It's owned and operated by Glenn Liburd in partnership with Daniel and Brenna Lewis of Brooklyn Tailors.

Get it from Glenn's Denim for $390 (available in sizes XS-3X).

24. A pair of drawstring joggers that are definitely an upgrade from the sweatpants they've been sporting every day for the past month.

reviewer photo showing three different angles of reviewer wearing joggers in khaki

Promising review: "I've had mostly bad experiences when buying articles of clothing online, mostly for fit reasons. I bought grey and khaki in medium and both seem to fit well. They look very good for casual outerwear, they are very comfortable as well. The fit is pretty good, I would say on the tighter side. For the price, the comfort, and style they are an easy buy, so I bought another color just to have three pairs." —Arabi

Get them from Amazon for $7.81+ (available in sizes S-3XL and 15 colors).

25. Cashmere-lined leather gloves to keep their hands warm no matter the occasion — driving, shoveling, snow ball fights, you name it.

reviewer wearing leather cashmere-lined gloves holding a snow ball

Promising review: "For years I have been wearing the same pair of gloves. Each winter they get worse for the wear. Each year I swear that I will find replacements. Many other gloves have attempted, only to be relegated to the secondary jackets to await their casual and infrequent usage. I always return to the original gloves I have learned to love. With these new gloves entering my home just before Christmas (its important to buy yourself a present on Amazon each time you buy something for the family for Christmas, and this was one of those self-purchases) they entered the rotation as my main gloves, and within only two days, my old loved and well-used winter gloves were a distant memory. Being replaced with these, that in every way became the new favorites. Now they go with me everywhere I go." —Tjay Belt

Get them from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in fleece or cashmere lining and three colors).

26. A fleece zip-up jacket that's kind of an oxymoron — it'll keep them soooo warm, but have them looking soooo cool.


Get it from Asos for $56 (available in sizes 3XL-6XL).

27. A pair of fun socks perfect for the breakfast lover on your list. Their love for these socks will be so intense, it might just make their stomach growl.

28. Or, Darn Tough boot socks to keep their feet warm and dry without the bulkiness and irritation that can happen with standard wool socks.

Model wearing boots with Darn Tough boot cushion socks in black
Darn Tough

Promising review: "These are simply the best socks my feet have had the fortune to be in. The padding on the underside and the complete lack of seams make them the most comfortable socks I've ever found. I do a lot of walking and hiking so good socks are imperative. I've bought merino wool socks before and I thought that they couldn't be bettered, but I was mistaken." —sonicscot

Get a pair from Amazon for $24.94+ (available in seven colors).

29. A minimalist wallet with eight card slots and RFID-blocking technology to protect their identity (assuming they don't leave this one behind on the subway, again).

Promising review: "I really love this wallet. I was replacing a worn out traditional folding wallet, which my cards fell out of, and it was too bulky. I looked at few different ones on here and went with this one. It’s awesome. Slips into my front pocket, it’s lightweight, holds all my cards. I only carry four. I really like the favorite card slot. I can easily access my debit card using one hand. It has a clear window ID slot. It has two slots for cash or a biz card, etc. it’s great not carrying a bulky, big wallet. It’s very well made too!" —D. Swan

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in six leathers and nine colors).

30. A Levi's sherpa-lined trucker jacket because they love their regular denim jacket, but it's just not practical for the cold weather that lies ahead.

Model wearing Levi's sherpa-lined trucker jacket in changing seasons wash

Promising review: "Good jacket for fall/winter. I would say this is an essential piece for any wardrobe. Not too heavy, not too light. Good for everyday use especially in the colder months. You can easily put this jacket on over a hoodie, no worries and it still won’t add too much weight like some jackets. The only thing is that it restricts your movement around the arms a little bit but I understand it has to be worn in so it will fit much looser. Overall a solid piece. Can’t go wrong with Levi’s." —Wayne De Leon

Get it from Amazon for $58+ (available in sizes XS-3X, including big & tall sizes, and 13 washes).

31. A Chubbies half-zip pullover in a festive Fair Isle fleece they can easily layer on all winter long.


Get it from Nordstrom for $59.50 (available in sizes XS-L).

32. A classic Stormy Kromer cap — a legendary cold-weather icon for over a century — guaranteed to channel their inner lumberjack (and keep their ears from getting too frosty).

Stormy Kromer

Promising review: "My original Stormy Kromer arrived just in time to wear during an autumn outdoor wedding in the mountains. While others were huddled by night around an undersized propane heater, my head and ears remained perfectly comfortable while I responded my thanks to endless compliments about my incredible sense of style." —Dennis Hippert

Get one from Stormy Kromer for $44.99 (available in 13 colors).

33. A cardigan sweater with a shawl lapel and warm, textured knit they can literally wear anywhere (think sweatpants on the couch, or with jeans and a flannel when they're visiting their in-laws).

Jos. A. Bank

Get it from Jos. A. Bank for $59 (available in sizes S-XL, including big & tall sizes).

34. A faux leather jacket that'll definitely have them thinking you shelled out a small fortune for it (but we'll keep what you actually paid for it between the two of us). 😉

Promising review: "I have been wearing leather jackets for years now, a couple of different brands ranging from $430-$700. My brother shared this with me, at first I was skeptical to order because it was much cheaper than the brands I have been wearing but I gave it a try and I am glad I did because I will be saving so much money from now on and will get the same quality as the expensive brand ones, I ordered a few colors. Don't hesitate! Wear this and see how many compliments you get." —Daniel

Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and six colors).

35. Relaxed-fit Madewell jeans that might just be the most comfortable pair of denim they've ever pulled over their legs.

model wearing relaxed straight jeans in eastchase wash

Promising review: "These jeans are great I’m glad Madewell is doing different fits. They are a great alternative to the slims and skinny fits and breathe great. I love these jeans would recommend them to anyone who likes a more fashion forward look. I got my normal size. You could probably size down because they give slightly but nothing crazy." —LoveMark

Get them from Madewell for $128 (available in sizes 28x30-36x34).

36. A pair of classic Dr. Martens 1461 oxfords that were made to last. They feature an air-cushioned sole and a durable Goodyear welt, which means these'll quickly become their go-to pair of kicks no matter the occasion.

Promising review: "Docs are just the best shoe! Always amazing! Durable and built to stand up to anything! Great job for all these years!" —Matthew W.

Get them from Dr. Martens for $120 (available in sizes 6-16 and 10 colors).

37. A turtleneck sweater that's nothing short of comfortable, classic, and versatile. 🐢


Promising review: "I love this turtleneck. It is warm and comfortable. I wish I had seven. I bought another in a different color after experiencing this one. I love both. The feel and the comfort of each of these two are far superior to the other turtlenecks I own. I wish I did laundry every other day so I could wear these two every day!" —Jules J. Mermelstein

Get it from Amazon for $18.78+ (available in sizes XS-XXXL including tall sizes and eight colors).

38. Patterned boxers that are stretchy and comfy enough for them to wear all day long.

three-pack of Puma men's athletic boxers in black, gray and red

Get them from Puma for $24.99 (originally $30; available in sizes S-XL and three colors).

43. An Under Armour compression mock to keep them warm and sweat-free during all their favorite cold-weather activities, like morning runs, ice fishing, and snowboarding.

Under Armour

Promising review: "I always have trouble finding something that is warm enough for those high 40s to high 50s temperature ranges when walking or riding my bike. I don't like to start out too cold and then, get too hot, either. (Call me Goldilocks!) This is my go-to piece. Great fit. Does a wonderful job of keeping me warm/cool at same time by wicking away moisture. Very comfortable. Could wear it just walking around or hanging out. Can't wait to wear it as my base layer snowboarding this winter, too." —honoluludon

Get it from Under Armour for $49.99 (available in sizes S-4XL including tall sizes and six colors).

44. A Carhartt Detroit jacket featuring a blanket lining and a corduroy-trimmed collar that makes it just as suitable for the garage as it is for the street. Basically, they'll get a heck of a lot of use out this.

Product photo showing Carhartt Detroit jacket

Promising review: "I have purchased this same Detroit Jacket from Carhartt several times over the years because it is a really tough work jacket with with a warm blanket lining, and it’s a nice jacket length for working in the shop or for driving. The heavy canvas material cuts the wind nicely on cold days. I love this coat. You can’t beat it for the price and it is one tough work jacket." —MJ Smith

Get it from Amazon for $89.99 (available in sizes S-XXL and two colors).

45. Or, a lightweight bomber jacket to easily polish off any of their looks — everything from a button down and chinos, to sweatpants and sneakers.

47. Or, a pair of classic white Reeboks because their current "everyday sneakers" should've retired months ago.

Promising review: "I love these shoes! They’re my go-to white shoes for any outfit whether you wanna dress up or dress down. They’re comfortable and fit exactly how I expected them to be. They also give you a little bit of height which is great for me since I’m short and for those of you who are looking for shoes that’ll give you a little bit of height. These are slowly coming back into trend and I would recommend these white shoes in everyone’s closet. I have yet to buy another white pair of shoes because of how much I love these. Also I’ve danced in these and they don’t crease as bad as any other white leather/pleather shoes. The leather fabric is really soft and smooth so the crease is very minimal. You can wear these and not have to worry about them having a huge crease line. Overall amazing shoe!" —Jeffery

Get them from Amazon for $49.94+ (available in sizes 3.5-15 and two colors).

48. Lastly, a reversible belt — you just can't ever go wrong with a classic.

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes 26x28-48x50 and eight color combinations).
