The Chic Gifts That Are on Our Wish Lists This Season

If you're preparing early for the holidays like I am, you know there's already a slew of wish list–worthy products out there. I always turn to Banana Republic for chic gifts both for myself and for my loved ones, and this season is no different. This year, the fashion-forward retailer has so many goodies that are hard to say no to. I'm talking fuzzy coats, cashmere sets, cozy accessories, and more. If you're also eyeing Banana Republic for your holiday gifts this year, you're highly likely to be everyone's favorite gift giver.

My fellow editors agree, and they all have a thing or two to say about the retailer's winter selection. Whether you want to try out some seasonal trends before the year is over or need to start buying gifts for all those holiday parties you have lined up, there's something here for you.


This season, senior news editor Erin Fitzpatrick is picking up classic pieces that fit right into her wardrobe. If you're in need of pieces to rotate during your holiday dressing circuit, take a look at these chic picks.

"I love blazers because they can instantly dress up anyone's favorite jeans and tees. This one is so polished, sleek, and well made, so it looks more expensive than it actually is."

"I'm obsessed with this beautiful ruby-red color, which fits right in with the holiday season. I'd be tempted to keep it for myself and play up the jewel tone by styling it with other rich colors like deep blue or purple."

"Nothing says winter like a cute pom-pom beanie. It's a gift that's guaranteed to be functional and wearable, so it's never a bad idea."

Associate editor Aniyah Morinia just moved to New York City from Florida, so this holiday season, she's spicing up her wish list with items that feel festive and winter-ready.

"It's so much easier to be extra and experiment with fun outerwear when it's given as a gift. This coat is a perfect starter piece for more bold looks. Also, I'm giving it bonus points for being reversible."

"This turtleneck sweater is the ultimate fall and winter staple. It's perfect for layering, so easy to style, and a piece that anyone could wear on repeat all season long regardless of their personal style."

"It's so hard to find a bag large enough to carry all my essentials around the city, small enough to comfortably tote throughout the day, and cute enough to match all of my outfits. But I think I finally found the one, and it's also the perfect gift."

The amount of thought that senior editor Ally Payer has put into every item on her gift list makes me think she must be a really good gift giver. Case in point: the pieces she picked below.

"This cozy coat is such a good gift for someone who lives in a cold climate. They'll think of you every time they wear it."

"I love to give gifts that people wouldn't typically buy for themselves. This cashmere set is just that, and they'll actually use it for years to come."

"This shirt would actually work for just about anyone, whether they have a classic style or are more trend-forward. I could see my mom appreciating this just as much as my sister-in-law would."

In the mood to get a gift for yourself and try out some of the trends you've been eyeing all year? Take a page from market editor Indya Brown's book, and test the waters below.

"Knit bras are one of 2020's transformative trends that I'm glad fashion blessed us with. And so far, the trend has only gotten bigger. This bralette is just the thing to wear around the house or with a blazer and jeans while out and about."

"I practically live in slippers this time of year, and I can already tell this slipper-sock hybrid will never leave my feet."

"All I desire to be this winter is cozy, snuggly, and warm. This jogger is just about as cozy as one can get."

Our market director, Bobby Schuessler, is the reigning king of easy, effortless, and cool style. Those on his list this year should consider themselves lucky (especially whoever is on the receiving end of the cashmere beanie).

"Cable-knit sweaters are trending hard right now, and I can't get enough of this chunky silhouette. I want to live in it, and I know anyone on your list would as well."

"A cashmere beanie—do I really need to say more? This is ideal for that extra-special person in your life."

"These joggers get an A+ because of the cozy and chic nature. I'm particularly into them because you could easily dress them up for a day out."
