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.

And a few more women’s gifts under $250 for her from last year that are surprisingly still available this holiday season!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Why it’s a great gift: Help her take on the January climate in cozy boots.
