For this season’s gift guide series on Style Girlfriend—that we’re calling #giftincolor—we hand-selected more than 100 outstanding holiday gift ideas for both men and women. Every Tuesday we will launch a brand new guide that’s themed to a different color.
To kick off our weekly series of color-themed holiday gift guides, we rounded up a selection of the richest reds, the i—and one delicious bourbon. From shoes to scents, sweats and sweaters, we’re obsessed with each product down to the tiniest hand-tied fly.
Seasonal plaids are a can’t-miss gift for guys and girlfriends alike. Two of our favorites come from preppy purveyors L.L. Bean Signature and Kiel James Patrick, not to mention the plaid-lined detailing on Gant By Michael Bastian’s ultra-cozy down vest.
If someone on your list skews more Irvine than Ivy League, we love the idea of gifting a pair of cool and casual Vans sneakers or a slouchy knit beanie. Though, as far as hats go, we can’t help but fawn over Preston & Olivia’s hand-blocked hats. This one, the Isabelle, is made from fur velour felt, and is finished with a feminine bow on the crown. Consider this the holy grail of toppers—ideal for the most stylish woman you know (or a Carmen Sandiego doppelganger).
Perhaps the most unique gift idea in this week’s guide is Patagonia’s Simple Fly Fishing Kit. It’s a splurge at $300, but for the amateur outdoorsman (or woman!) in your life, this is a thoughtful and inspiring choice sure to lead to years of adventure and—if you’re lucky—freshly caught dinners.
I know it’s early, but have you started your holiday shopping yet?
