I’m a Fashion Editor Who Loves Gifting—22 Chic Pieces I’m Excited to Give

Sponsor Content Created With Free People

From friends to colleagues and partners to parents-in-law, there are plenty of people who we want to celebrate this festive season. And gifting a present that's thoughtful, useful and chic in equal measure is my love language. There's no greater feeling for me than finding something special for someone I care for and watching their eyes light up when they unwrap it. But for many, knowing where to start can feel like an overwhelming endeavour. That's why I've taken it upon myself to make the whole process easier, and better still, I've found a range of brilliant gifts all in one place, and that's Free People.

Known for its free-spirited aesthetic, Free People offers high-quality, standout styles year round. From party dresses to elevated staples—and of course, chic gifting options—Free People is always there to rise to the challenge, no matter what's on your list. Whilst I could go on about all the brilliant pieces (we all have a soft spot for the We the Free Firecracker Jeans, £158), it's the brand's ability to translate that laid-back West Coast vibe to gifting season that I'm most excited about right now.

This year, Free People has honed in on those cosy presents that offer a moment of respite during the busiest time of the year. With dinner parties and celebrations aplenty, it's our downtime that deserves some extra care, and with stylish loungewear, mood-setting candles and cosy winter accessories, this edit offers plenty of warm, cosy moments this winter. Picture a cosy night on the sofa watching Christmas films whilst snuggled in a soft blanket, wearing a matching lounge set and fuzzy slippers. Or perhaps a brisk walk after a filling Christmas dinner, accessorised with winter warmers like a scarf, earmuffs and an insulating knit.

Maybe your recipient deserves some self-care in the form of a candle-lit bubble bath before slipping into a pair of silky pyjamas for a perfect night's sleep (eye mask included). Trust me, whichever gift you choose, they're sure to appreciate the thoughtful nature of these cosy offerings.
