Need a little help with the lady on your list this year? Maybe it’s your bestie who already seems to have everything – look no further – we have the answers! 2020 has been a doozy of a year and now that the holidays have arrived to distract us from our existential dread, we’re delighted that our covid shopping hobby has been validated since we’re buying Christmas gifts for others and not just ourselves. We’ve been training for months and we’re ready to wrap up all the very best gifts. Whether it’s the perfect fancy sweatsuit they’d never buy for themselves, or a new smart watch to keep them motivated with their new at home fitness routine, we’ve rounded up ten amazing gifts for her (or really anyone) this holiday. Happy shopping!
Continuing to up the ante on the cozy trend for 2020, Los Angeles brand KkCo returns with yet another covetable sweatsuit. The marble dye print sweat suit is constructed from a super comfy heavy weight fleece finished off with staggered branding and a reflective paracord drawstring. Not only are these sweats cool enough to wear outside the house, they’re super easy to dress up with a trench-coat and chunky boots or down with a vintage tee. Boom – a perfect untraditional gift for your bestie or your girlfriend.
Puzzles are so hot right now but we’re kinda over the basic landscape varieties and on to a whole new world of the trendy, relatable scenes like this one from piecework puzzles. This one is 1000-piece, so it’s guaranteed to keep her occupied for at least a few hours over the holiday season.
With gyms being closed for the better part of 2020 it’s safe to say we’re all starting to consider adding a workout space into our homes permanently. The Apple Watch is the perfect addition to that set up, your own personal cheerleader keeping you on track with your health and wellness goals. Whether it’s fitness, sleep, health, or just checking your notifications, Apple Watch has it all in just a swipe on your wrist. The Series 6 also includes an app that measures your blood oxygen, more precisely tracks the workouts you love, and keeps you connected even when you’re not with your phone. Apple has also improved emergency SOS and fall detection for peace of mind, so not only will the watch remind you to keep moving, it could also save your life.
Apple is also set to launch Apple Fitness + on December 14th, a new platform of studio style classes that dynamically integrate Apple Watch metrics into the workouts to keep you engaged and motivated throughout the workout
Available in a wide variety of faces and bands, we love the Apple Watch in classic silver stainless steel paired with the new stretchy braided solo loop for more transitional appeal from workout to everyday. Pair it with an Apple Fitness+ membership for *the* perfect gift for that fitness buff on your list this holiday.
Loungewear has been quite the trend this year and we just remembered pyjamas were a low key Christmas tradition, and honestly we can see why. We’re not talking about those lame matching plaid ones your whole family gives each other, we’re here for these on-trend olive check ones from Australian brand Holiday. They’re made of 100% linen and chic enough to wear to a summer party with a pair of sling backs.
Spending all this time at home this year has really made us appreciate the little things in our daily life like bed sheets, towels and cozy slippers. Copenhagen based fabrics brand Tekla has some of the finest towels out there that can transform your shower routine from basic to spa worthy. Their 600-gram weave is oh-so soft on the skin yet absorbent enough to dry your whole body in a few swipes. Plus the double-stitched hems and close corners make these towels a long lasting option and a perfect practical gift that she can enjoy for years to come.
We’ve been following Brooklyn-based BIPOC designer Martine Ali for some time now. We love the way all her designs are at once edgy and genderless in vibe but also super versatile, like this one which can be worn as a necklace and as a belt chain. It’s treated with a custom patina finish and made from sterling silver coated brass that’s the perfect length for everyday wear.
This sweater has to be an analogy for our brain in 2020. Swirling out of control but cozy because most of us are staying inside. Cult Spanish brand Paloma Wool does it again with this super soft square fit sweater that’s a cozy mix of wool, acrylic, and responsible alpaca – meaning they use pain-free shaven animals that are bred in a natural environment, respecting their natural habitat and life patterns. A great gift for you conscience and someone special on your list this year.
There are few gifts more exciting than little orange boxes under the tree. Hermés has launched their first ever satin-finish lipstick and we’ve been coveting it ever since. Highly pigmented and long lasting, this lipstick not only comes in the chicest of packaging but also conditions the lips leaving them supple and hydrated. Bonus, it’s also refillable – yay for sustainable products made to last! This might be the tiniest little orange box under the tree this year but it certainly won’t disappoint.
If it’s one thing 2020 has taught us, it’s appreciating the little things and what better way to do that than with a beautiful bud vase. Perfect for any budget, a bud vase makes it possible to have fresh flowers in the home without having to fill a vase full. We love this bud vase from Australia’s Capra Designs for its sculpture-like appeal that looks good even when it’s empty. Simply pop one or a few stunning blooms in and admire for days to come.
Nothing quite like the smell of roasted chestnuts or frosted cherry to get you in a holiday mood. We’re gifting this stunning trio of candles this holiday to the girl that has everything and needs a little Christmas cheer to enjoy long after the holidays too. Jo Malone has released the perfect festive array of limited-edition home candles in Frosted Cherry & Clove, Roasted Chestnut and Sweet Almond & Macaroon with a unique designed top that perfectly snuffs out candles without the usual smokey finish. Pop one in the kitchen and one in the bathroom for the full experience this holiday.
