Now, before I get into the goods for other people, I should point out that the outfit I’m wearing in this video is from Talbots too, and through the stealthiness that is online shopping you can buy it for yourself while making everyone on the other side of your laptop think you’re shopping for them. Muahahaha.
My top is Talbots’ Cashmere Sabrina Tunic in black, but don’t worry it also comes in seven other colors. It is 100% cashmere and ridiculously cozy. I just wanna nap in a pile of these, to be honest. The skirt is a classic plaid midi that’s fully lined and when you think about it, who doesn’t need a 100% perfect plaid skirt in their closets this time of year? It’s peak plaid season, y’all.
Okay, now onto the stuff I’m (most likely) giving to other people. The gifts!
Perfect Holiday Gifts From Talbots
This red boucle wool coat with black removable faux fur collar is the sweetest gift for our moms this year, despite my brain telling me it is actually the perfect gift for me. The wool is lined so the coat is plenty warm, and the bold, bright red makes it the ultimate coat for wearing to every holiday party and event—and beyond.
Tell me, WHAT is better than a good glove? There’s something so romantic about this particular pair with faux fur trim, it’s like we’re living in another time despite the fact that you can still text with these things. That’s right, the fingertips are tech-enabled so your hands won’t freeze to death outside when you’re ordering an uber.
These are cable knit faux fur earmuffs, YEP. While I’m definitely gifting these, I’m also 1000% buying a pair for myself because I just reeeeally love wearing earmuffs in the winter. Apart from the obvious cute factor, they allow you to maintain your blowout while not losing ears to frostbite. Smart.
You could let your family wear the random, generic eye masks they give out on long flights, or you could gift them a travel set made of cashmere that makes flying something luxurious, for a change. This cashmere set comes with a blanket, a pillow case, an eye mask, and socks. I now refuse to leave home without this, I don’t care if I’m traveling no further than the Upper West Side.
No one buys themselves nice socks. No one. Socks, especially adorable ones like these, are an awesome gift because you’re giving a little bit of luxury that no one thinks to shop for on their own. They spark so much joy when snuggled up at home, wiggling your toes in front of a fireplace all season long. While I’m on the topic, Talbots actually has a TON of cute socks for the holidays, and all the days, so don’t sleep on the sock section.
Sometimes the things we wear all the time are the things we don’t buy for ourselves often enough. Especially not in versions this cute. Basic sweaters are such good gifts because they’re crowd pleasing, super classic, and warm. Talbots has countless options in a ton of colorways, there’s literally no one on your list who wouldn’t be delighted to open up a beautiful, well-made, and stylish sweater this holiday. Bonus points if it comes in a bajillion colors and has adorable button detailing at the cuffs.
Ah yes, brooches, aka shirt jewelry. I am very much a fan of brooches as gifts for the holidays. There’s a little bit of a vintage feel to them, but all the Talbots options feel perfectly current. They’re a really fun way to bring in a bit of holiday cheer to coats, blazers, sweaters, etc., if you’re not ready to go full head-to-toe tartan.
Thanks to Talbots and ShopStyle for partnering on this post!
