Holiday Gifts Made Easy: Our Ultimate Guide to One Size Fits All

Nov 15 2012 - 1:21pm

Holiday shopping can be seriously tricky, even when you know someone really well. Today, we're making it easy on you, and the one constant variable throughout this guide is this: size really doesn't matter. In fact, that's what makes these picks particularly gift-worthy. If you want to negate the whole return-and-exchange process, the "one size fits all" option is your best friend come gifting time. That doesn't mean you immediately head for the gag gifts and novelty items (although, those are fun, too), it means you can indulge in the things that don't adhere to strict sizing, like statement accessories, chic notebooks, must-have iPad cases, and more. We found two pouches that double as cool clutches and makeup bags, a luxurious crystal-encrusted neck warmer, a gorgeously scented Diptyque [1] candle, a handful of the softest cashmere knits, and one delicious Barneys x Disney find (literally). Find 22 perfect gifts for every kind of a styler in your life, right this way.

The beauty in most jewelry is that it's ultrapretty, ultrafeminine, and exempt from sizing problems. With this Club Monaco Norelle topaz necklace [2] ($90) you can adjust the length according to outfit, and with its statement jewels front and center, the gift is sure to evoke a sense of vintage glamour.

Let's be honest: no matter what your style palette calls for, no matter how old or young you are, socks are the perfect one-size-fits-all gift. Our go-to pair is always Happy Socks trouser socks [3] ($12), and these zebra-printed ones are a limited-edition for Madewell [4].

Clare Vivier's 3-stripe flat clutch [5] ($184) is simple, classic, and reminds us of something we'd wear on a dreamy trip to Paris.

This is like Instagram but for the girl who loves to play photographer at the holiday party. We particularly love this Urban Outfitters [6] exclusive camera, the Holga 35mm [7] ($48), which comes in a retro-chic pastel green hue and will look great with any outfit.

We've been loving everything about the J.W. Anderson for Topshop [8] collaboration, so it shouldn't come as too much of a surprise that this red tortoise-printed iPad case [9] ($40) is a fun way to get in on the capsule.

Are you (or your friends) obsessed with the street-style scene? Then, Scott Schuman's latest chronology of stylers is right up your alley. Snag the Closer [10] book ($19) for less than $20.

The Karl Donoghue shearling scarf [11] ($280) offers up a decadent gift with a cozy Winter appeal, and if you have a friend who loves to layer up in style, this is the perfect solution.

You can't get a better candle than Parisian brand Diptyque [12], it's the ultimate in home scent luxury (in our opinion). And if you're not sure what scent to give, here's our current favorite: Baies [13] ($60).

Now these Valentino rocketed driving gloves [14] ($445) give us luxury, edginess, a little bit of glamour, and a little bit of Old Hollywood all rolled into one.

Sure, these Knock Knock Fashion Citation notes [15] ($4) are definitely a sillier gift, but for the fashionista with a sense of humor, they're kind of perfect. Plus, you can pair this little notepad with a classic scarf to make it a well-rounded present.

We never thought we'd say this, but we think everyone needs a Maison Martin Margiela crystalized neck warmer [16] ($1,065). This is definitely an aspiration gift for any styler, but wow, what a way to adorn your neck with warmth, huh?

If you can't go overboard with an Olympia Le Tan clutch, start off easy with a M/M printed tote [17] ($210), which is a sleek choice for running around town.

Have a preppier friend in your life? This Zara checked scarf [18] ($50) is classic, but the frayed hem has a bit of an edge to it. A great example of the "best of both worlds," in our opinion.

Whoever gets this Eddie Borgo Rose gold-plated crystal cone bracelet [19] ($750) is one lucky style setter. It's a cool combination of edgy, girlie, and if you're a believer in arm parties, this is a great starting point.

We couldn't resist one more book, and this one is for serious Kate Moss [20] fans. And for that matter, fans of Mario Testino's work, too. Splurge for this Kate Moss book from Taschen [21] ($70), which shows off a cool collection of insider photos of the supermodel.

Here's a fashion gift that has almost nothing to do with fashion: Disney Electric Holiday x Barneys Mickey Mouse truffles [22] ($34) are a deliciously chic treat with a festive touch. Plus, you don't have to go break the bank to get in on Barneys' latest collaboration.

Going with our Winter white obsession, we couldn't deny this luxe cashmere Eugenia Kim slouchy beanie [23] its place on our gift guide lineup.

For the girl who stays stylishly busy, this Dezso canvas pouch [24] ($65) will provide an easy-breezy accent. Almost literally. We love that you can use this palm-tree printed pouch as a laid-back clutch or use it as a makeup bag.

We can't decide what we love more about this Fallon leather wrap bracelet [25] ($150): is it the enviable green color or the cool lion doorknocker details?

There's something slightly rebellious about mismatched earrings, but these Social Anarchy Moon & Star 14K yellow gold earrings [26] ($220), you can take on this styling quirk with a sweet celestial twist.

We're not kidding, J.Crew's magic wallet [27] ($23) is magical. First, how sleek is the two-toned metallic casing? Second, it's superslim and manages to somehow hold all the essentials: your credit cards, ID, receipts, and train card. It doesn't matter if you're a global jet-setter or not, this magic wallet will make anyone smile.

This is a necklace every girl should own, and we've found it. Say "hello" to Yayoi Forest's diamond briolette necklace [28] ($698). It may be an investment, but this is one of those pieces you'll have forever.
