This time of year, every retailer is vying for our attention, hoping that their selection is the one that stands up to the rest. But after spending one too many hours scouring every last one's gift offerings (which, I might add, is a very dangerous aspect of my job as a fashion editor), I realized that narrowing it down to just one holiday-season winner simply wasn't going to be possible. Rather, by my count, there are three retailers that have taken gift-giving to the next level in 2021.
With my gifting to-do list in hand, I set out to check off every last name with a little help from Nordstrom, Shopbop, and Net-a-Porter, and, as predicted, all of the above came through. From cozy Skims loungewear and shearling slippers to trendy holiday accessories and home scents that are worth every penny, I'd be willing to bet that the 45 gift ideas ahead will impress even the pickiest person in your circle.
