1.Sterling silver cubic zirconia studs that look like they would run you about trillion bucks, but no — they actually cost very little and even my humble savings account wouldn't be bothered by the purchase.
2.A Herschel waist purse here to give fanny packs the respect they deserve. Sure, they may laugh when they open the package, but let me make one thing perfectly clear: They will love this. They will use it all the time. It stores everything they need with no aching shoulders required.
3.Lucky Feather bracelets intended for those in a long distance relationship. The onyx and howlite represent love and strength so if you'll excuse me, I'm two-day shipping this all the way to my best friend who has so rudely decided to move to Boston.
4.A deco fan ring embellished with an ethically-sourced freshwater pearl sure to get them dozens (upon dozens) of compliments whenever they wear it — which will be 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
5.A set of Kitsch spiral hair ties — and before you question whether these genuinely pass of as gifts, the answer is a unanimous yes. These coils won't dent their hair, won't feel constricting when worn on their wrist, plus who actually has enough hair ties? No one. Mine have a three-second window before they go missing forever.
6.A chain bracelet so timeless-yet-trendy, you really can't go wrong with it. Rest assured that unwrapping this gorgeous hunk of arm candy is all but guaranteed to make any recipient happy.
7.Gold-plated padlock dangles about to ~lock~ in the title of their new favorite earrings. They're dainty enough that they go with everything in any closet *but* are a bit more daring than the average studs.
8.A fuzzy beanie I'd very much like to bury my face into!? These are so delightfully cozy and soft, they'll make freezing cold weather seem — well — not quite as awful. Perfect for the friend who is constantly cold.
9.A Baggu reusable tote available in several colors and designs; think striped and metallic to prints featuring dogs and grazing cows (the latter of which I am particularly fond of). These are durable, fold up into a tiny square, and will be ~toted~ around with every grocery trip they take.
10.Acrylic gold flake clips truly worth a Shakespearean novel because I, for one, now officially believe in love at first sight. I never thought I'd have such strong feelings about a clip but here we are!
11.A Kitsch headband perfect for their nighttime skincare routine. This must-have accessory is crafted with a luxuriously soft microfiber material that won't tug at their roots, plus has an opening in the back to ensure their pony stays secure. No more drenched scalp after a simple cleanse.
13.A rectangle pendant necklace you can completely personalize for a thoughtful gift that they'll cherish forever. This hunk of hand-stamped beauty can hold three lines of text (up to six characters per line), be filled with gold, rose gold, or silver, has three length options, and can be finished off with a mirror or matte finish.
14.A pair of 100% opaque tights for the fashionista who insists on wearing a mini dress despite the fact that it is friggin' frigid outside. These babies are lined with ultra warm fleece and won't clash with any Insta-worthy outfits.
15.A reversible fuzzy scarf because — *checks the Weather app* — it's turning into the season of having to heat up your car. This is made from an ultra soft material that looks great, feels great, and will actually help keep them warm.
16.Tiered chandelier earrings that have the witchy ability to turn unintentionally ripped jeans and a wrinkled white tee into an ensemble suitable for champagne and caviar feasts. They can throw these on pre-Zoom holiday party to feel extra festive.
17.A foldover leather tote because it's about time they retire that $12 purse they purchased in college and somehow still wear. There are lipstick stains in the inner pocket. The strap is starting to unravel at the seams. It had a good run, but it's time to move on.
18.A sterling silver knot ring here to really tie the ~knot~ when it comes to getting the compliment of best gift ever. It's perfectly dainty, goes with any style wardrobe, and reviewers swear it won't leave behind the dreaded green line.
19.Tortoise with polished gold prescription glasses that are truly fantastic for daily wear. This timeless design won't clash with any 'fit in their closet: in fact, it'll just make you feel more polished. These rank at a 20/20 for practicality and style.
20.A beautifully-constructed Daniel Wellington watch — the kind of splurge-worthy accessory that would be passed down through family members for generations to come. When words fail, I'll let an emoji do the talking: 😍.
21.A Fossil RFID-blocking clutch wallet made from a durable, quality letter that can withstand poor handling (*thinks back to all the times I literally threw my wallet across the room*). It's also super spacious thanks to 13 card slots, a back pocket, and four bill compartments.
22.Lightweight hoop earrings available in yellow, white, and rose gold as well as in three sizes. Reviewers swear these versatile bebe's look like they could easily cost five times the price — thankfully, they do not. "Oh, you shouldn't have spent so much!" "Haha, I totally didn't!"
23.Thick wool socks that are like a warm hug for their feet, because who says toes don't deserve a good snuggle? Plus, these do a good job at keeping their hooves feeling warm without making 'em sweaty...which is no small ~feat~.
24.A set of five gold-plated bracelets they'll find themselves reaching for every darn morning. If you're looking to gift a pièce de résistance that will complement pretty much every piece of clothing they own, then this is IT.
25.A belt buckle fedora hat because "I didn't feel like washing my hair" days are inevitable and their heart can't live on dry shampoo alone.
26.An oval buckle belt that can a: keep denim from slipping below anything other than a high-rise (heaven forbid) and b: look darn cute while doing it. As someone who typically hates belts, I think... I may actually purchase this one.
27.Chunky drop earrings capable of taking everyone's breath away whenever they show up on Zoom. Sure, there are 18 participants in total, but they'll be pinned and staring at their own reflection for the entirety of the call.
28.A faux leather bucket bag they'll be able to cart from work to drinks and everything in between. Is the below a fancy designer brand? No! But the quality and style are so top-notch that they'll simply assume it is.
29.A veil-topped beanie serving major Morticia Addams energy, which is the only kind of energy we're trying to exude this holiday season. I mean this in the least offensive way possible — if your friend is a bit of a Grinch (#me), this is the only stocking stuffer they'll be overjoyed to receive.
30.A custom ring inspired by their favorite cityscape (or the one they're currently living in now): Think spots like New Orleans, New York, Paris, or Prague being adorned on their digits.
31.A layered choker necklace so delicate and dainty, it truly looks like it would cost upwards of one million dollars. Surprise! It actually costs less than $10, meaning you can knock off everyone on your gift list for a super reasonable sum.
32.A Marc Jacobs cross-body purse for a splurge-worthy gift they'll treasure forever (and ever). The purse itself is designed with a classic black leather while the multi-colored guitar strap gives it that extra ~je ne sais quoi~.
33.Midi hoops crafted with gold vermeil (sterling silver layered with18-karat gold) that comes with a two-year warranty. Folks, say hello to the *only* accessory they'll want on your earlobes ever again.
34.Burlybands because it's time they ditch the dollar store hair ties and look to greener pastures (especially if they have super thick hair). These won't stretch out, won't break after that extra wrap, and genuinely stay in place, plus they feature a seamless design that won't cause damage.
35.Cozy gloves equipped with ~tech fingers~ so they can comfortably scroll through their Instagram feed without having to brave the elements in the process.
36.Unisex aviator and cat-eye sunglasses — both of which block the shade, add trendiness to any outfit, and don't cost a small fortune. Lose them? Break them? Scratch them? The loss won't feel quite as significant (even if they are a gift).
37.A set of three pairs of gold-plated freshwater pearl huggie earrings you'll be tempted to keep for yourself — and no one would blame you for that very understandable betrayal! These are way too pretty to wrap up and give away. Add two to your cart. We deserve this.
38.A twist headband that turns their noggin into a present, bow and all. They can throw this on to keep baby hairs out of their face, add some stripes or dots to their 'do, *and* hide greasy roots.
39.A Jet Set Candy accessory so they can travel the globe — sort of. This brand uses quality sterling silver, 14-karat vermeil, or solid gold to create destination-inspired jewelry that will do nothing to quell their wanderlust. Sorry, not sorry.
40.A padded velvet headband they can slip on over their mane to feel instantly transformed into Blair Waldorf. Xoxo, you — the best gift giver on Manhattan's Upper East Side.
