It’s hard to believe, but we’re finally here: The last #GiftInColor holiday gift guide. After sampling just about every color in the rainbow, we’re concluding with the most essential (non) colors in our sartorial vocabulary: black and white. And yes, a dash of gray too.

Cozy and cool are the two words that come to mind when we think of this guide—from Schott’s killer wool-and-leather varsity jacket to Coach’s so-hip-it-hurts fringe bag and Negative Underwear’s sassy and sexy bra-and-briefs set. Extra cozy points go to Saturday’s Surf NYC for their down vest lined in wool, and Patagonia’s down shirt that’s so thin and light you’ll hardly believe just how warm it actually is.

Two of our favorite (little) gifts in this guide are ideal scented stocking stuffers. For the guys, this candle from The Motley burns a pleasing fragrance that’s super subtle yet totally masculine. For the ladies on your list, you can’t miss with Elizabeth and James’ Nirvana perfumes—Black has notes of vanilla and sandalwood (a personal favorite), while White is a feminine blend of peonies and musk.

We hope you guys liked shopping our gift guides as much as we enjoyed putting them together! It was actually one of the biggest undertakings in the history of Style Girlfriend, and I couldn’t have done it without the help of a very talented editor and photographer, awesome brands excited to be a part of the SG story, and countless messengers toting bags and bags (and bags) of products all over town.
