The Under $250 Gift Guide For Her

Go big *and* go home

By Megan Collins | Last Updated: Nov 25 2020

During uncertain times, it’s good to go back to the basics. That’s why this year, we went heavy on feel-good fashion in our annual gift guides, like this list of the best gifts under $250 for her. 

There’ll be plenty of time for beauty sets perfect for playing, and sparkly evening wear worthy of a big night out. This holiday season, you’ll find stylish picks here on Style Girlfriend that will have you and your loved ones looking and feeling like a million bucks. 

Think: cozy WFH-wear and luxed-up basics.

Whether you’re an OG part of the SG community, or new around here (welcome!), get ready to knock out your holiday wish list and your shopping list.

Check out gifts under $250 for her:

Gap corduroy puffer jacket, $148

Why it’s a great gift: Gap actually launched their Black Friday sale early, so this cute puffer jacket is already 50% off. Don’t wait!

.

Paige joggers, $209

Why it’s a great gift: Joggers aren’t always sweatpants material, as this Paige pair shows.

These pants are great for when she wants to make a little effort, but still feel comfy as hell. A sentiment we are all waking up to more and more these days.

.

Luv Aj statement necklace, $125

Why it’s a great gift: Chunky gold necklaces are very “in” this year.

Maybe it’s because wearing this heavy hardware is an easy way to dress up an otherwise low-key outfit for weekday Zoom calls. Maybe it’s to feel just a little tougher in a year that’s kicked our collective ass.

Either way, you can find plenty of options in the “gifts under $250 for her” range; we like this Luv Aj style for its double wrap chain.

.

Free People sweater, $128

Why it’s a great gift: Look at the model and what a fun time she’s having in this sweater!

Plus, it comes in a few colorways, in case she’s less into head-to-toe black than Team SG.

.

Rothy’s loafer, $165

Why it’s a great gift: We don’t want to name drop, but Meghan Markle wears Rothy’s. So…yeah. They’re worth the splurge for getting her feet into royal-adjacent territory.

.

Madewell mini-dress, $158

Why it’s a great gift: This party dress feels totally perfect for a NYE spent at home this year. Sparkly and fun, but also not too tight.

And it has sleeves! Perfect for a low-key wintertime celebration.

.

Abercrombie & Fitch vegan leather puffer coat, $180

Why it’s a great gift: We’ve been pushing this puffer in our “Gifts for Her” collection since the first cold snap.

With good reason! It’s cute and fun and warm and proves our theory that Abercrombie & Fitch is totally back, babyyyyyy.

.

Sorel boots, $185

Why it’s a great gift: Another ladies’ FASHUN trend, if you’re into that kind of thing, white boots are a great gift this holiday season.

The Sorel pair above will keep her toes toasty all winter. We also love the pull-on style of a Chelsea boot.

.

Bella Dahl sweater cardigan, $163

Why it’s a great gift: We covered this in our Under $100 gift guide, but cardigans are a Winter 2020 jam. For real.

We don’t like to make broad sweeping generalizations, but we’d guess the chunky black and white plaid of this Bella Dahl style would be a hit with any lady on your shopping list.

.

Splits59 fleece matching set, $80 (sweatshirt) and $98 (sweatpants)

Why it’s a great gift: We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: matching sets FTW!

.

Dr. Martens sherpa-lined boots, $160

Why it’s a great gift: She’ll be stomping her way into a (hopefully better) new year in these cozy, sherpa-lined boots.
