Holiday Gift Ideas

With the holiday season in full swing, it’s never too soon to start thinking about the numerous gifts for friends and family that need to be purchased.  Regardless of when you start shopping, finding the perfect gift for every different member of your family and friend groups can be a daunting task.  Taking the time to find a unique, personalized gift for each person (i.e. not giving the same gift to your mother as you would your second cousin) makes all the difference.   To make your life just a little simpler, here’s a short list of holiday gift ideas from Humble Chic for all the favorite besties in your life:

1. Scarves

A beautiful silk or cozy knit scarf can be an excellent gift for mothers, grandmothers, siblings, and bosses.  Not only can you never have too may scarves, but there are many affordable options that look expensive and high quality.  Scarves are also an ideal holiday gift idea because they are so seasonally appropriate this time of year, plus they’re great as a stocking stuffer for close family members.  Because there is such a wide variety of scarf options, make sure to tailor your gift selection to each individual’s taste.  For your mother or boss, stay classic and traditional with a Hermes-inspired silk scarf.  For your sister or best friend, go preppy rugged with plaid, or choose a fun print.  A warm, sumptuous knit infinity scarf is an option that works for just about anyone.

2. Earrings

Earrings are an ideal gift for coworkers and casual friends.  Classically styled earrings are the perfect choice for people whose tastes you don’t know particularly well, such as a new friend, or that “secret santa” office party gift you’re struggling over.  Moreover, there are many quality earrings available at a great price point.  This is optimal when you’re buying an assortment of smaller gifts before you even get to the family members and close friends on your list.

You can’t go wrong with a beautifully crafted wallet or wristlet as a holiday gift idea.  Wallets and wristlets these days come in a wide array of colors and styles so it’s easy to find the perfect choice.  Wristlets and wallets can be appropriate for closer friends, or more peripheral coworkers and family.  Products made from high quality vegan leather are a super affordable option that many people are choosing this season.

4. Clothing

Clothing is a harder gift to give but can really pay off if you know person well and really understand their taste.  Clothing is also a great option as a higher point gift—perfect for family members or best friends.  Items like a cozy, high quality cardigan sweater or beautifully detailed blouse can go a long way if you know the recipient’s style.  For sweaters, an oversized knit is the safest option because it is easier in terms of sizing, looks great on everyone, and is very much on trend this season.  When choosing a blouse, pick a style with standout detailing, like lace, beaded embellishments, or interesting stylistic details.  Anyone can buy the basics for their wardrobe so buy something they will remember and get compliments on.
