Promising review: "This coat is no joke. The coldest temperature I tested it out in 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

Promising review: "I love this sweater! I have dressed it up, dressed it down, worn it with leggings, worn it with jeans, taken it out on the town with heels and worn it to school pickup with my Vans. You can layer it over a turtleneck or a camisole. It’s super versatile and so comfortable.

Promising review "GUYS, OMG this jacket is definitely a hidden gem. It's so soft and makes you look so sophisticated!! It does shed a little at first, so definitely wash this before you wear it unless you want little specks all over your clothes. I learned the hard way LOL. However, I wore this outfit pictured in 50-degree weather and it kept me warm! This is definitely one of those 'blanket-but-make-it-fashion' pieces HAHA. I love it so much." —@Kathy_Vu

Promising review: "Living in the San Francisco Bay Area, I find that good rain boots are a necessity. When fashion and quality are a must, look no further than a pair (or two) of Hunters. Normally I would've bought black, but it seems like everyone is doing those right now and I wanted a bit of a pop to my rainy day wardrobe. The gloss red is gorgeous and cleans easily. I get compliments on these on a regular basis when the weather necessitates wearing them." —Laina Saas

Free two-day shipping for Prime Members; check the listing for delivery date estimate.

11. A puff-sleeve relaxed sweater dress because the best type of dress to gift your loved ones or besties is one they won't dread wearing when it's cold outside. Style and comfort all in one? A must!

12. A pair of thigh-high suede boots they can pair with dresses, skirts, jeans, leggings — they name it, they can pair it. Gifting these is a no-brainer. The hard part is figuring out which gorgeous color to choose.

Promising review: "I decided to give these a try because of price, and I'm so glad I did! I was very impressed by the quality of the material, as well as how comfortable they are. I am very picky about my shoes and typically do not buy shoes that are not name brand." —Whitney

Get them from Amazon for $48.99+ (available in 13 styles and sizes 6–10).

Check the listing for delivery date estimate.

13. A crystal-embellished headband to make them feel like the royalty we know they are. As we speak, princesses, princes, queens, and kings are tossing out tiaras and crowns and opting for this instead.

Get it from Farfetch for $473.

Expedited two-to-four-day shipping options available at an additional cost.

14. A pair of Adidas Cloudfoam sneakers for the most comfy pair of shoes they'll ever wear...EVER. I own these and I swear, they're really like walking on clouds.

Shoe shopping is probably my least favorite thing in the world. Not exaggerating. I have a bigger foot, I am super picky, and honestly, shoe stores kinda bore me. When I find a pair of shoes I love, I make sure to cherish them, and these are hands down the best shoes I've purchased in the past year. They are genuinely the comfiest shoes I've ever worn and I'm getting ready to buy another pair soon because I love them that much. The comfort level feels more like you're wearing socks than actual shoes, yet there's no lack of support — so I have no issue wearing them while working out and for everyday use. Truly, these shoes make me want to cry tears of joy over how much I love them. 

Get them from Amazon for $48.71+ (available in various colors and sizes 5–12).

15. An oversized knitted sweater-vest that's basically a must-have in any wardrobe. This versatile number can be perfectly paired with pretty much any kind of bottoms, tops, or dresses. I'll take one in every color.

Promising review: "Love this! Well worth the price! I ordered a medium so that it wouldn’t be too oversized and look awkward. And it fits perfect!! I paired it with a white turtleneck underneath, but the options are limitless here. Was surprised at the quality of this’s very soft and thick. Which wasn’t what I expected at all. My only real complaint is the price of the item. However, this item is very trendy, so I understand. Would definitely, and might, buy again very soon!" —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in nine colors and sizes S–L).

Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this purse! It's exactly as pictured. Comes with original tags and a purse care card. It's not too big and not too small — the sizing is perfect for me! It's a beautiful bag and definitely worth the price. You're getting it for a steal when compared to the original price of the bag! Would recommend!" —Alyssa T.

18. A pair of fluffy Ugg slide slippers their feet would thank you for if feet could speak. However, feet cannot speak, but I bet the gift recipient will thank you double on their behalf.
