As we get closer to Christmas (or whatever you celebrate), people will be asking you for gift ideas. Or you’ll be looking for gift ideas for others. If you’re like me, you don’t really want other people buying your clothes because it’s too risky of a move. But there are other items that are worth putting on this list, that are style related, that make for great gifts, either for yourself or others. Here is what I think make for great gifts this year.
A Good Sweatshirt
We’re in the coldest time of the year, and having an easy “throw something warm on” item in your closet is well worth it. Opt for grey if you want something that literally goes with everything.

A Slim Wallet
This was on the 2015 gift guide, and I’m doubling down on that pick again. I can’t stress enough how nice it is to carry such a slim wallet. It forces you to only keep the necessary items in your wallet. And of the many folks I’ve recommended a slim wallet to in the past year, have all loved it.
Top pick: Ezra Aurthor No. 3 Wallet | Runner up: Herschel Supply Charlie Card Holder
A Good Looking Smartwatch
Many of us love the idea of smartwatches and fitness tracking. The problem is, most of them are pretty damn ugly. Enter the Timex IQ+ Move. It strikes a great balance between good looks and basic fitness tracking. It also has a few different colorway options to fit your style. This is a great gift idea for the stylist techie in your life.
Top pick: Timex IQ+ Move
Lightweight Puffer Jacket
With the cold weather here, we want to stay as warm as possible without looking like the Marshmellow Man. This is where lightweight puffer jackets come into play. They have a thin profile while maintaining a slim and refined looked. They also can make for easy packing if you’re traveling.
A Cashmere Scarf
A scarf is one of the most important accessories in the winter time. And if you don’t yet have one, opt for a cashmere. It will feel extremely good on your skin, and they’re super warm. It’s also an accessory you can continue to wear into the early days of spring when it’s cool out, with a lighter jacket.
