’Tis the season for sweaters, sparkles, good cheer, and, of course, gift-giving! No matter the occasion—it’s important to celebrate the people nearest and dearest to you with a carefully chosen gift. From a pocket-size luxury to a thoughtful token, a gift, no matter the cost or scale, can show someone that you’re thinking of them in the festive season ahead! Should this year’s list of people to shop for be a long one, we are here to help with the best holiday gifts for 2022. As we consider ourselves pros in the gifting department (who doesn’t love seeing people excited with their gifts?) below, you’ll find our roundups of the very best gifts for women and men that will delight any recipient. Happy holidays and happy shopping to you and yours!
Can’t-Go-Wrong Classics for a Fashion Enthusiast
Finding that perfect gift may seem daunting, but rest assured, these gifts have earned the title of classic for a reason. Sophie Bille Brahe’s colorful jewelry boxes are practical but not at all boring, while Completedworks’ twinkly pearl drop earrings will leave everyone, quite literally, beaming. Who could refuse a pair of Roger Vivier crystal-embellished kitten heels or Sleeper’s Feather-crusted silk deux-pièces? Looking for something for someone who takes pride in their well-stocked beauty cabinet? They’ll surely delight in a season-appropriate lipstick from Chanel. Still, feeling overwhelmed? You can’t go wrong with something classic, like a pair of leather gloves or a gold bauble and a luxe velvet jewelry box to stash it in. And there are always comforting items like a warming candle, cozy slippers, and luxe pajama sets she’ll be sure to love. A thoughtful gift will go a long way—might we suggest adding a lovely, handwritten note too?
Beauty Bounty for the Makeup Obsessive
No matter what type of cosmetics enthusiast she (or he) may be, she’ll most certainly fall hard for any one of these beauty goods, like MAC’s expansive collection of makeup brushes or Channel nail polish. Should you want to spoil her, Dries Van Noten’s collection of perfumes is the perfect gift to do so. A great beauty routine begins with solid skincare and La Mer’s eye cream and Estee Lauder’s cult classic serum is the perfect place to get her started. And if you want to play it chic but safe, Chanel No. 5 is a classic for a reason!
Feel-Good and Budget-Friendly Pleasures
Do they love to throw a dinner party, host a book club, or is someone that always has company? Delight their love for entertaining with any one of these festive finds, from Ferm Living’s champagne saucers with personality, to martini glasses that match the mood and will surely be a hit at their next soiree. Also, you can ever go with a beautiful sweater or a delicate and luxurious silk square scarf. Moreover, a pair of fancy and funky socks or festive baubles are always a winner for a quick and little-but-fun-nonetheless gift. We love a pair of leather gloves to keep our hands warm during the cold months ahead or on the same note a sophisticated card wallet. And for the gourmand of your friends, may we suggest a cookbook we’ve been loving and a Panetonne by Doce Gabbana? They will be a hit!
