You’re shopping for her? Perfect! Lands’ End has you covered. Let’s look at the gift ideas to make this the best year yet for the women on your gift list, and an easy shopping experience for you
From flannel shirts to flannel pajamas and robes, there is just nothing as cozy as slipping into your favorite flannel in winter. Cotton flannel features a classic weave to create that oh-so-cozy nap we love. The fabric is not only wonderfully warm and soft, but it also breathes to keep it cozy.
Flannel shirts are a great gift for girls as well as women. You can layer them over a tank top, wear them by themselves with jeans or leggings, or add a puffer vest or coat for added warmth.
A thick sweater is always a winner for holiday gifts. Whether she likes turtlenecks, crewnecks, or a cardigan sweater, she’ll love the gift of a new, cozy sweater.
Cardigan sweaters are among the most versatile wardrobe pieces. You can layer one over a T-shirt, tank top, or camisole. You can wear them around the house for comfort or with a women’s blouse for a professional look professional. They also come in various fiber contents, from cotton to wool to synthetic, which give them differing options for warmth and breathability.
If you want to go for the full luxe experience, consider buying her an heirloom-quality cashmere sweater. Cashmere is an instant upgrade to any ensemble because of its beauty and softness. As long as it is cared for properly, a cashmere sweater can last for years to come, making it a wardrobe investment. Cashmere sweaters come in all styles, from crew neck sweaters to turtlenecks to tunic-style sweaters to cashmere cardigan sweaters, so you’re sure to find one she’ll love. Just check her sweater size and favorite colors in advance. It’s also a smart idea to choose a retailer with a great return policy (like Lands’ Ends’) if something doesn’t work out and she needs to exchange it.
When caring for your cashmere, start by following the manufacturer’s instructions. Most cashmere can be either dry cleaned or hand washed in cold water and then reshaped and dried flat. The key thing to keep in mind is avoiding harsh chemicals or temperature extremes. When you are ready to put your cashmere away until next winter, ensure it is clean, dry, folded, and stored at room temperature and away from humidity.
If she loves working out (or just wearing comfy workout wear), give her the gift of comfort and style with activewear for women. Especially if she is better at spending time and money on others than buying things for herself, this can be a great gift. Brighten her holiday season and make it easy for her to hang out or work out with a new pair of leggings, a cute top, new workout joggers, and a workout shirt.
A new workout outfit may be just the ticket to make her look and feel great in the new year. Whether she has plans to start a new exercise routine at the start of the year, continue what's already working for her, or just enjoy leisurewear and something comfier than wearing jeans and a sweater when she's hanging out or running errands — activewear for women is a great choice.
When in doubt, pamper her at home. Does she have a new set of flannel sheets to slip into when the mercury drops? Perhaps a new fleece throw to curl up in front of the fire with her favorite book and a cup of cocoa? Are there upgrades to her kitchenware that would brighten her day-to-day activities or her entertaining throughout the year?
If it’s been a while since she has redecorated her bedroom, consider a mini bedroom makeover with new bed sheets, a down comforter, a new duvet, and decorative pillows. Because the bed is the largest piece of furniture in a bedroom (and usually the focal point), new bed linens are almost like redecorating the whole room. The same principle applies to bath towels, hand towels, and washcloths in the bathroom. When they are hanging up, they take up space and can help to create a plush and pampering atmosphere. Give her the gift of a spa-like experience at the end of the day with these simple bedroom and bathroom upgrades.
You can get her the gifts she will love this year with some planning. Have a warm and wonderful holiday season, and have fun shopping!
