To say that the holiday season can be more stressful than celebratory for busy moms may be an understatement. Parents can almost sense the calm before the storm brewing mid-October because there’s a trio of events to prep for: Halloween, Thanksgiving, and then whatever you choose to celebrate come December. Most of the anxiety on the tail end stems from finding the right gifts that the whole family will love, all the while trying to stick to a budget that won’t make you freeze your credit card come January 1.
This year’s solution? Crafting a foolproof gifting plan with us as your guides. We started with inspo from Mandy Moore’s new partnership with CHAPS, which highlights the stylish picks she’s eyeing herself this season. Then, we expanded to everyone else on our list. From that wrap dress for your best friend to button-ups for dad to 2020-ready gear for the little ones, we guarantee there will be oohs and ahhs from everyone in your circle this year. You got this.
Your closest confidante deserves wardrobe pieces that will make her feel good no matter where she’s going. Because she’s constantly jetting from place to place, she needs pieces like cozy sweaters, easy skirts, and the perfect little dress that seamlessly transition from day to night with just a few accessory changes.
The pretty knot waist detail on this long-sleeve dress works with anyone's style.
What do you gift the woman who not only gave you life, but who also seems to fix everything with a flick of her not-so-magic wand? Make her feel special with picks like tailored blazers, classic sweaters, and a cool poncho that lets her know that you know she’s still got it.
The perfect finishing touch to any look doubles as the ideal travel companion to combat airplane A/C.
This cherry red sweater looks great underneath a crisp-fitting blazer.
Whether it’s for your dad, father-in-law, or other father-figure in your life, the important people in your life should be spoiled once in a while. What better time than the holidays? Choose something for them to wear to root on their favorite sports team, celebrate that cool new art opening, or wow at work during the next big presentation.
A lightweight windowpane two-button jacket goes with anything and everything.
It's all about subtlety: this flannel button-up features an outdoorsy print.
Is there any better feeling than watching the little ones unwrap their holiday presents? Surprise them with clothes that speak to their unique personalities and that let them show off their signature style.
