Considering the holiday season starts before we even get a chance to carve the Thanksgiving turkey, I think it's fair to start checking off your gift list. (Nobody's ever regretted getting a head start on all the purchases that need to be made.) For the fashion lover in your life, this year is all about trending accessories and cozy closet additions. Uniquely shaped earrings, Adidas x Wales Bonner sneakers, and the softest sweats to ever grace one's legs are top of mind. In the beauty category, we have big hitters including the Dyson Airstrait and the NuFace mini toning device, which I promise are worth the splurge. Lastly, we can't forget about the men's category, which is full of great knits, cool loafers, and skincare they'll actually use. The following 30 items are sure to set you up for success this season. Keep scrolling to shop the coolest holiday gifts for everyone in your life.

Fashion Gifts

Gigi Hadid was spotted wearing these all over NYC. 

A puffer in the latest colorway trend is exactly what to buy. 

I love the classic plaid scarf, but this new striped style feels much cooler. 

If you want to give the coziest gift to ever exist, let me introduce you to these plush joggers. 

Corduroy is always a classic fabric choice for fall/winter, but I'm seeing it pop up even more this year. 

These Adidas x Wales Bonner sneakers will blow any sneakerhead away. 

This sculptural belt feels very high-end. 

Instead of opting for a cable-knit sweater this year, try this French girl–approved striped style. 

The finishing touch to any holiday look. 

Skip the slippers, and gift a stylish and comfortable mule. 

Beauty Gifts

If you have any hesitations about this purchase, go ahead and look up the before-and-after videos on YouTube.

A clear cosmetics case stuffed with their favorite beauty products is such a fun gift idea. 

My personal favorite lip gloss comes in the cutest holiday set. 

There are so many eye shadow palettes on the market, but this one has the perfect mix of shimmer and matte options. 

I've been testing the Solawave for a week now, and the results are actually astonishing. If you know someone looking to even their skin tone without spending thousands at a med spa, this tool is it. 

Menswear Gifts

This cream and blue colorway feels like an elevated alternative to a typical red flannel.  

A gift that says, "Your Ziploc bag won't cut it anymore." 

I'm preparing to see every cool New Yorker wearing this beanie all winter long. 

Who needs a raincoat when you have this rain-repellent hoodie?
