These gifts give you the chance to spoil a loved one who may not shell out money to treat themselves to the nice things they deserve. Here are some of the world’s best fashion and trend gifts for him and for her.

For Her

1. If you’re looking for a slam dunk, you can’t go wrong with Sam Edelman.

This Micaela canvas tote has a coated canvas exterior and a synthetic lining. Vegan leather tabs and loops make this bag even more eco-friendly.

Strategically placed pockets keep contents well-organized while magnetic snap closures keep them safe. The tiger print and bold stripes will turn heads on the subway, at the office, or wherever else this tote is taken.

2. Show your personal superstar how much you think of her.

Adidas Originals Superstars are the perfect shoes for sporty and fashionable young women. They go with just about everything and the stripes come in every color of the rainbow.

They’re comfortable enough to wear for lounging, but nice enough to wear out on the town. The sizes run a bit big, so consider buying down a size for a secure fit.

3. When you don’t know what size someone wears, but you know they like being cozy, here’s an idea.

This Fringe blanket scarf from Urban Outfitters will become a permanent fixture around its recipient’s neck. It’s warm and cuddly without being bulky.

At 79″ by 27″, it doubles as a mini-blanket. It’s easy to wrap and tie in endless ways and can be a lifesaver in frigid winter temps.

4. One of the most underrated accessories? Vests.

This quilted vest from Vince Camuto brings a little elegance to the sidelines of soccer and football games. It’s the perfect combination of style and utility.

With side-entry pockets for hands and zippered upper pockets for stuff, it provides tons of room for fall and winter essentials. Best of all, it’s machine washable.

5. Give a truly great slipper from UGG.

These plush slippers are as comfortable and stylish as you would expect from the iconic company. Their rubber soles give these slippers traction, and the genuine leather exterior is water resistant.

Lined with thick wool, these moccasins envelop feet to quickly banish the cold. Choose from a wide variety of colors that allow you to make a truly personal selection.

6. A pair of high-end skinny jeans makes an unforgettable gift.

7 For All Mankind skinny jeans are as good as you’ve heard. The unique blend of 58 percent cotton, 40 percent viscose, and 2 percent spandex allows them to fit like a glove while still being ultra-comfortable.

If you’re looking to spoil someone for being good to you, these jeans are the way to do it.

7. Find out why Oprah chose this to be one of her favorite things of 2017.

This sweater from Lark and Ro is 100 percent cashmere. It’s flattering on any body type and, needless to say, extremely soft.

Lark and Ro knits longer strands of yarn than other companies to create softer, more pilling-resistant sweaters. If they’re good enough for Oprah, they’re good enough for us.

8. If they have to stomp through the snow, they may as well do it in style.

SOREL Boots are great for staying warm without giving up style. With insulated, vulcanized rubber shells, they keep moisture out and provide maximum traction.

You can trust this Canadian company to make a cold-resistant boot that still looks great with just about anything.

9. Giving the perfect winter accessory will get you major brownie points.

These statement earrings are the perfect addition to any winter outfit. They bring to mind snowflakes, icicles, and stars—all at the same time.

These ear jacket drop earrings are a great stocking stuffer for anyone who likes to dress to the nines.

For Him

1. Not all stocking caps are created equal.

A cashmere hat is the best way to keep their head warm when they have to brave the winter winds. This ribbed hat from Fishers Finery is stylish and comfortable, but most importantly, it stops the breeze in its tracks.

This cap goes with everything and can keep even the baldest head warm during the holidays.

2. Don’t shell out $200 for a pair of Chelsea boots if you don’t have to.

Crevo makes a more affordable Chelsea boot that looks and feels great. These comfy leather shoes can be pulled on thanks to a rear loop and goring side panels.

They’re great for work and going out. And luckily they’re comfortable enough that no one will mind wearing them for long periods of time.

3. Minimalism is in, and so is this wallet.

This leather file wallet from Jack Spade has room for the essentials only. It features three card slots and two cash compartments with tab dividers.

It’s perfect for those who want to pare down to the bare necessities.

4. It’s just a matter of time before this is your special someone’s favorite shirt.

This half-zip pullover is the kind of thing people race home from work to change into. Soft Supima cotton combined with an easy-on, easy-off design makes this perfect not only for lounging, but also their casual Friday or night-out look.

It’s nice enough to wear to an upscale restaurant, but he’ll love sporting it on the couch the most.

5. Minnetonka has been making moccasins since 1946.

These pile-lined hardsoles are one of their best designs yet. As a house shoe, they just can’t be beat.

With a faux-fur interior and whip-stitched toe, they’re super-comfy. The rubber outsole allows for that quick run outside to grab the paper, even when there’s snow on the ground.

6. There’s a reason why people pay a little extra for Ray-Bans.

They are the most stylish, lightweight sunglasses on the market, and these Wayfarers are no exception. They are polarized with a 100 percent UV400 protection coating.

Whoever you give these to (they’re unisex so she’d love them too) will be looking for an excuse to go outside, no matter what the temperature is.
