Can you believe it’s November already?! This year hasn’t been like any other and I know we could all use some holiday cheer now more than ever. So put up that tree, blast that Mariah and hey, let’s embrace those holiday movies that have already landed on Netflix. I know it may seem early but you deserve it! Let’s make this time at home as festive as possible.

What’s my favorite thing about the holidays? Giving gifts to the people I love! Whether you’re doing a gift exchange via Zoom or if you’re fortunate enough to see family members and friends in person this season, I am here to offer you a few of my favorite gifts from Aerie.

This list was extremely hard to narrow down but thankfully our entire gift guide is here for your shopping needs.

Whether you’re buying for your BFF, sibling or even yourself (that’s right!) — here are my top 10 favorite gifts:

#1

A Little Leopard

For the fashionista in your life who loves a leopard print, this sweater is sure to win. The oversized fit could pair beautifully over a slip skirt for the holidays or can be kept casual with our OFFLINE Real Me leggings — they will get endless use out of this statement piece.

#2

A Statement Scarf

For your BFF, a blanket scarf will always be part of my fall-to-winter wardrobe. This bold red is the perfect pick-me-up to wear with a classic camel coat or over a sweater. I personally love wearing this with neutral tones for a pop.

#3

Faux Real, The Perfect Slipper

Everyone on your list needs these! This is a fool-proof gift for anyone on your list. These faux fur slippers are the epitome of comfort and perfect to lounge around the house. I live for a slipper and these are just straight up fun. They come in a variety of colors but I’m loving the cream for cozy vibes.

#4

The Timeless Sweater

For your sister, your mom or yourself — this sweater is the perfect winter essential. It’s a classic crew neck with a buttery-soft yarn knit and an oversized fit. This sweater would look amazing layered over a slip dress or worn with jeans. It’s a timeless piece that will never go out of style and amazing for any loved one on your list.

#5

Stocking Stuffer FTW

A scrunchie set that makes a great stocking stuffer – these fun patterns match back to our holiday pajamas (also on this list!). The plaid is classic, nostalgic holiday and the leopard scrunchie is the perfect addition to any simple outfit to add some edge!

#6

Joggers That Bring Joy

Do you have a loved one who needs a loungewear update? Look no further than these OFFLINE OTT Fleece Joggers. They’re the softest thing you’ll ever put on! I highly recommend these joggers for others or for yourself! I have almost every color but this shade is my favorite to pair back to my winter white knits (plus, see below for some outfit inspo with a cardi).

#7

Pajama Party

For anyone on your list who appreciates a coordinated set. These pajamas come in a few patterns, but I love a classic plaid for the holiday season. The fabric is warm, cozy and perfect to lounge in for a holiday movie marathon. I love gifting Aerie pajama sets to my mom and sisters because who doesn’t love a twinning moment?

#8

Cardigan of Dreams

For the person in your life who loves a cozy knit and is always cold — ha! This is the most beautiful cardigan sweater. It’s a heavier fabric with cable-knit details, gorgeous buttons and an oversized fit. I love the shade of this cardigan, the perfect cream.

It looks great worn alone or layered over a tee. I paired mine with the OFFLINE jogger (above on my list) for an all winter-white look. I would gift this to my sister who is obsessed with cardigans…if you’re reading this, you’re welcome J .

#9

Waffles, Please

For the legging lover, our waffle pajama legging is perfect post work-out. Plus, it’s part of a matching set! The plush waffle fabric is so soft and will keep you warm for those cooler nights. I love the taupe shade but with so many fun patterns and colors to choose from you can’t go wrong.

#10

New to Aerie? The Best Introductory Sweatshirt

For anyone on your list who hasn’t experienced the gift of Aerie yet, this is the perfect introduction! Our sweatshirts are a must-have and this Good Vibes Oversized Sweatshirt is an easy everyday piece. This style comes in new colors this season and the tan shade is a personal fave. This sweatshirt is oversized, amazing over leggings and will be the gift that keeps on giving!

I hope these items help make your holiday shopping a little easier…or maybe I added a few items to your personal wish list as well? Let us know how you are treating yourself too in the comments, Aerie fam. Wishing you a safe, happy & healthy holiday season!
