We often turn to influencers Janet Gunn and Melissa Meyers for flawless style inspiration. What can we say? The busy moms over 50 just get it thanks to their sartorial trial and error over the years. Of course, though, age has absolutely nothing to do with what you should or shouldn't wear. While we recently showcased some of the basics this duo is all about right now, we thought we'd tap them next to share another edit of the fashion gifts they think could be nice options this season. So if you've been on the hunt for that perfect present or simply want some inspiration for yourself, what's coming your way might be particularly intriguing.

With all that in mind, keep scrolling for a smattering of gift ideas that could be highly appealing for many given their versatile nature. We're talking everything from practical accessories to chic winter staples. Keep scrolling for more.

Accessories: Socks and Belts

"A true accessories lover will be thrilled to get a designer belt (always on our wish list!) or something practical like another pair of chic readers or stylish socks."—Meyers

"Twenty-twenty has been the year for loungewear as fashion. Keep her in style with a few different options to add to her collection. We love cozy-chic cashmere and base-layer sets or jammies to stay warm while relaxing by the fire."—Meyers

Stylish Layering Pieces

The best coats for gifting


Janet Gunn

"Two big holiday wish-list items in our book are the classic leather jacket and a sweater coat. One can never have too many, and they add great style to any outfit!"—Gunn

"Hands down, the top trending accessory that everyone should be giving and getting this year is the face covering. You can never have too many!"—Meyers

Sleek Bags

The best bags for gifting

"We love gifting handbags—classic belt bags, animal print backpacks, and totes."—Gunn

Slippers and Cozy Shoes

The best slippers for gifting


Janet Gunn

"You can see our gift guide this year is leaning heavily towards all things cozy, so gifting slippers fits right in. We like keeping our feet furry and warm with either open-toe styles or closed. A firm sole that can be indoor or outdoor-friendly makes this footwear easy to live in 24/7."—Gunn

"A woman always loves to receive a new piece of jewelry. From statement earrings to delicate layering pieces, we think the gift of sparkle always wins."—Gunn

Scarves and Wraps
