Best Winter Coat

1. Lauren Ralph Lauren Pillow Down & Feather Jacket

Lauren Ralph Lauren

  • Size Range: XS to XXL

Winter is coming, and if you're wishing for a cozy winter coat stuffed under the tree, look no further than this pillowy beauty from Lauren Ralph Lauren. It has a quilted style and longline silhouette that'll keep you fully covered in cold weather. We especially love how stylish it is, featuring a gorgeous stand collar for added insulation and a head-turning fixed hoodie. One reviewer appreciates that the coat is high quality in both design and appearance, writing, “It falls at a good length, [plus] it is colorful and comfortable. I like that it has an interior zipper in addition to the long exterior zipper to provide more warmth.” Consider sizing down if you are between sizes, as the site’s description suggests.

  • Size Range: 5 to 12

Both your brother and your boyfriend will be so jealous when they see you unbox your sleek new sneakers. Don’t worry, there’s a pair for them, too. The adidas Ultraboosts are known for the brand’s trademarked springy boost cushioning that provides a next-to-none level of comfort, absorbs impact and distributes weight with each step. Made from recycled materials, these streetwear-inspired sneakers mesh fashion and function.

Best Tote Bag

3. Longchamp Le Pliage Shoulder Tote


We would never pass up the chance to snag a classic Longchamp tote at a discount and, well, neither should you this holiday season. Especially since the one we're referring to boasts a top snap and zip closure that opens to a roomy interior for ample storage (so you or your giftee can fit a laptop and lunch inside). The medium-sized bag is also made of sturdy coated canvas with chic leather trimming, so it's great for office days, travel and more.

There’s no gift quite like a staple sweater, especially when it fits seamlessly into their winter capsule wardrobe. This mock-neck knit from CeCe has the sweetest flare-cuff detailing and stylish side slits on its long sleeves. What really steals the show, though, are the pearly button embellishments at the sleeve. Darling-yet-sophisticated, this is a pick everyone needs in their closet.

Best Cozy Slippers

5. UGG Discoquette Shearling Slippers


  • Size Range: 5 to 12

Keep your feet cozy and comfy in a pair of these fan-favorite UGG slides, constructed from genuine shearling and fully lined with fluffy fleece. They're great for lounging around the home, but the structured clog design and durable platform sole also make these way more than just house slippers. After all, they've also got a treaded outsole for slip-free strolling and driving.

Best All-Weather Boots

6. Nordstrom Miller 2 Boots


  • Size Range: 4 to 13

Come rain or shine, these minimalist leather boots have got you (and your feet) totally covered. Not only are they water-resistant, they also feature an ultra-durable, grooved rubber sole to make slipping-and-sliding a thing of the past, even in wet weather. Details like the side zipper, pull tab and hidden elastic goring ensure easy-on comfort, and better yet, reviewers say they require *no* breaking-in period.

Best Underwire Bra

7. Natori Feathers Bra 


  • Size Range: 30A to 38DD

You’re pretty positive that your sister’s been wearing the same bra since high school, and she desperately needs a new one for the holidays. Meet the underwire bra for people who hate wearing bras. This nylon/spandex garment is praised for being *so* lightweight and soft while offering comfortable support, even for larger chests. The deep plunge and molded mesh of the contour cups makes it especially flattering under clothing, while delicate lace accents add a pretty touch. One happy buyer also added that "the contours are smooth and the underwire is supportive without 'spilling' under the armpits."

Best Vintage-Style Jeans

8. Levi's Wedgie High-Waist Jeans


  • Size Range: 23 to 32

Nodding to the brand's beloved vintage styles, these cheeky high-waisted jeans come in a sanded medium wash with minimal stretch in order to hug curves and accentuate the booty. Say no more, right? Well, we'll add that these flattering pants also feature a retro button-up fly and a slightly cropped hem, so you (or the lucky recipient) can show off a little ankle in the warmer weather.

Best Handbag

9. Coach Tabby Leather Wristlet


After the Coach Tabby bag went viral on TikTok, garnering 2.6 million searches on the social media app alone, it’s on practically everyone's wish list (including ours). Polished pebbled leather adds some texture to the otherwise minimalist bag, which also comes with a removable wrist and chain strap that allows you to wear it as a crossbody, dangling on your wrist or as a clutch. The roomy interior houses two card slots, while a snap closure ensures that your essentials stay safe. As a chic bonus, the bag features monochrome hardware with the brand's signature "C" attached.

Best Designer Jean

10. FRAME (Bio)Degradable Le Jane Jeans


  • Size Range: 24 to 32

For the one who appreciates luxury jeans, this pair of blue denim will make an exquisite gift. Currently on sale for over half off, the jeans feature frayed hems that look great when paired with heels, booties, sneakers—you name it. They’re brimming with laid-back cool, and are made with 100-percent, non-stretch cotton that should flatter the figure like no other.

Best Workout Leggings

11. Zella Studio Luxe Rib Leggings


  • Size Range: XS to XL

High waist? Check. Stretchy? Check. Moisture-wicking material that's ideal for getting a sweat on? Check! If you think these leggings can't get any better, we've got news for you. In addition to being perfectly stretchy and soft, thanks to a fabric blend of nylon and spandex, these workout/brunch/lounge pants also boast a thick waistband for extra tummy support. Mom’s going to love unwrapping these.

Best Clutch

12. Cult Gaia Eos Box Clutch

Cult Gaia

Gift your sister an accessory that boasts a fun pop of color for her upcoming holiday vacation. Crafted from hard acrylic, this trendy box clutch is a must for brunches and fancy affairs. It has a marbleized finish that makes it look extra glam, and it's framed by bold, bubbly baubles that serve as a fun accent while providing some useful grip. Don't be fooled by its petite size—shoppers say it's spacious enough to hold your phone, cards and lip gloss inside.

Best Mid-Rise Jeans

13. Madewell Kick Out Crop Jeans


  • Size Range: 27 to 32

You'll love slipping on these jeans for an effortlessly cool look courtesy of the slightly cropped and flared hem, which shows off a little ankle action. Thanks to a touch of elastane in the cotton blend, the denim also has the ideal degree of stretch to provide form-fitting comfort. But here's what you'll really love about this pair: They feature Madewell's "Magic Pockets," which are reinforced with an extra layer to cinch and smooth in front, making the mid-rise cut all the more flattering.

Best Leather Jacket

14. AllSaints Dalby Leather Moto Jacket


  • Size Range: 0 to 10

Vroom-vroom vibes and edgy flair—what more could you ask for in a biker jacket? This version of the classic closet staple from AllSaints is constructed from super smooth, buttery-soft leather with a cropped silhouette and a silky inner lining. In true biker jacket form, it also comes equipped with plenty of zip and snap pockets, as well as notched lapels. PureWow Associate Fashion Editor Stephanie Meraz owns a few leather jackets from AllSaints and notes that they typically run small, so if you're planning to wear it over thicker layers, we'd suggest sizing up.

Best Cable-Knit Sweater

15. Topshop Half-Zip Sweater


  • Size Range: XS to L

There's just something about the look of chunky cable knit that makes us want to curl up by the fire with a hot cup of cocoa, and this cozy number from Topshop is no exception. The oversized fit, half-zip placket and breathable open-knit design make it ideal to wear over layers, although you can also wear it on its own through sweater weather. Ribbed accents at the standing collar, cuffs and hem add extra dimension to the design. Since it's made from a mostly acrylic fabric, the pullover is machine-washable to boot.

Best Underwear

16. Hanky Panky Holiday Assorted Lace Thong Set

Hanky Panky

  • Size Range: one size, fits 4 to 14

Underwear makes the best stocking stuffers. (Hey, we don’t make the rules.) And since Hanky Panky can always be counted on for sexy-yet-comfy undergarments, we promise these won't disappoint. For one thing, the stretchy wide band and mid-rise of the five pretty lace thongs in this set should prevent uncomfortable digging and awkward lines under an outfit. For another, they boast a soft, Supima cotton-lined gusset in the area where it counts. They're also made from 100 percent nylon, so though this underwear looks delicate, it's sure to be durable. Since you can also snag a single pair or a festive-colored three-pack on sale right now, we say to stock(ing) up—pun intended.

Best Party Shoes

17. Loeffler Randall Dahlia Sandals

Loeffler Randall

  • Size Range: 5 to 11

Never have a pair of shoes looked so ready for a holiday party. These metallic sandals are a gift in so many ways, not least of all because they feature a crinkly crepe bow right there on top. Beyond that, the 2.25-inch block heel is the ideal height to hit the dance floor without the usual "high-heel fatigue" and the adjustable ankle strap ensures the perfect fit. Here's what one happy buyer had to say: "Bought them for my rehearsal dinner and walked quite a bit with no issues. Comfortable and beautiful. Looking forward to wearing them again!"
