It’s our favorite thing to do too! But birthdays are not the only reason to buy a little something special for a bestie. There are so many other reasons to celebrate with a nifty “giftie.” It can even be the kind gesture of  a “this made me think of you’” gift for your fave peeps.

From gifts for the girls, guys or your parents…here are some of our current favorite items that are sure to be on any wish list. Yup, this is the ultimate gifting guide for 2024.

Give Closet Staples

Cute clothes are never a bad idea to give to your best girlfriend. Think about it… nobody knows your bestie’s style better than you do, right? We love the class and easy to wear pieces from Marcella NYC’s collections! Marcella perfectly marries the big city cool girl vibe with minimalistic go-to’s and muted staples. Gift your boo a new top that goes with her perfect pair of denim, or get her into the mini skirt trend. 

If you have gal pal that loves to go out (and is the ultimate fashion girlie), the trend these days are pairing basic black tops with mini’s and chunky knee high boots. We love Skims for the best basics and Steve Madden for budget friendly chunky soled boots. Seriously, when she opens this gift she’ll immediately say Thank You! Belle the Label also does some exceptional “going out” tops that add classy notes to several of the cool girl trends we’re seeing this year, and for gifts for 20024,  including statement bow tops and unique cutout pieces. 

Give Cozy Finds

Nothing feel more cozy and happy than a good quality bathrobe. Honestly, cozy gifts are the best gifts for anyone.  Anthropologie has a luxurious terry Jubilee bathrobe with a striped border around the cuff.  Zara Home also has an excellent selection of bathrobes at a more decadent price so you can give ultimate luxury to anyone (check out this cashmere robe). Zara Home also has a snuggly set of terrycloth slippers too. 

Give Chunky Vintage Jewelry

Vintage jewels are in! Surprised? We’re not! We’ve seen this trend all over NYFW and there are some amazing pieces to pick up as gifts for 2024. You may feel it’s out of the norm or maybe not vibe with their style, but vintage pieces have so many multiple uses and really can be worn with anything. We LOVE a long Etsy browse to find pieces that truly fit with your bestie’s vibes but don’t break the bank. Several sellers on Etsy also redesign vintage designer pieces into one-of-a-kind creations that would be perfect additions to any “it girl’s” closet. Also check out The Dirty Chic for gorgeous chunky jewelry that will make her outfit pop!.

Give Luxe PJ’s

You can never have too many PJ’s and this set from Victoria’s Secret will have your best babe sleeping better than ever. Definitely look at J. Crew’s pajama sets for more gingham and cottage-core inspired sets, plus Skims for any PJ’s with basic colors and the softest feel. Djerf Avenue also has some adorable prints and so does Printfresh. They actually came out with some satin pieces that are so luxe to go to bed in. 

Give Bae New Clothes & Accessories

Men are some of the hardest people to buy for, but we’ve got you babe. For starters, you can’t go wrong with a pair of high-quality sweatpants. We recommend checking out some of the options from Abercrombie, or  Vuori’s pants or Strato Tech Tees for an extra-luxurious treat. Sweatpants are a crowd pleaser and can be worn everywhere, so the guys in your life are sure to love these types of gifts for the new year. 

On that note, we can also recommend getting your bae some good quality outerwear that’s super stylish pieces and can be dressed up or down. Zara and Abercrombie are fantastic stores to get pieces that fit the budget but look so. expensive. A funky hat is another awesome thing to give to any guy.  Check out this hat from Arcteryx which is a unique statement piece. You also can’t go wrong with a timeless timepiece. A watch is a classy way to dress up a fit and there’s a ton of options at different price points, like this gorgeous Casio watch for $75.

Pro Tip: If your guy isn’t a fashion man, a splurge on good bottle of whiskey or really any spirit you know that love is an excellent choice. Gifting an experience, like concert tickets to their fave artist or sports game, is also another way to surprise them.

Give Lifestyle Goods

2024 is the year of niche eye catching home pieces as gifts and we bet your friends will appreciate nothing more than a unique statement piece of servewear that looks beautiful in their home. The trend that we’ve seen in this department is fruit inspired servewear. Cute, right?  Check out this gorgeous collection of pomegranate inspired bowls available on Etsy. For a designer collection, Yasmin Falahat has a stunning collection of handmade fig and pomegranate ceramic trinkets that would be the perfect coffee table centerpiece. These are also great wedding gifts too or bridal gifts for an upcoming shower.

If you have some besties that love to host friends, gift them this cocktail recipe book, ‘Once Upon a Cocktail – West Hollywood’. Featuring illustrations of signature cocktails from the hottest bars in WeHo, the book takes you on a drinking adventure around West Hollywood. Also from Piecework, have a look at these Heirloom Tomato Candles that are sure to leave any visitors gasping in awe. A high-quality bottle of luxury olive oil is another thoughtful gift hosts will rarely think to buy for themselves, yet are a luxury item they’ll deeply appreciate. Graza is one of our favorite brands, and they have two delicious and subtle flavors and a collection to choose from.

Give Pretty Bottles of Wine

Every gift is better with a bottle of wine  and 2024  is definitely the time to gift fruit wine. If you’re on a budget, check out Trader Joe’s. They have a selection of cult favorites at different price ranges, which are perfect for an outdoor brunch or a quick housewarming gift. We adore Love, Olivia or Peach Bellini for the sweetest addition to any “welcome home” gift basket. We also have more TJ selections here.

Give Intentional Living

ICYMI reading is hot! Giving a thoughtful or personalized book is such an intimate gift. For an easy thought provoking read, we love If Cats Disappeared From the World by Genki Kawamura, a timeless novel that will move you no matter your age or background. The themes revolve around loss and reconciliation with life, and discovering what really matters in the end.  Cocktail napkins are another thoughtful yet highly-personalizable gift that add touches of personality to any home. We love the Baccarat X Kim Seybert Assorted Drinks Cocktail Napkin set  and we bet that any cocktail aficionado will as well. These reusable bags from Baggu have been taking TikTok by  storm during the gift giving season, and we can see why. This day and age you always need a bag, whether you’ve forgotten to bring one to the grocery store or need a cute way to pack lunch for the day. Baggu has numerous patterns and unique prints to choose from. Lastly, a cute journal, which is indispensable no matter who you’re buying for. Papier has some adorable and inspired prints to choose from.

If you’ve got a friend that you know needs to take a minute to themselves, remind them that slipping into a hot bath after a long day is the best with this Coconut Rose Milk bath soak from Poshology (which smells and feels as yummy as it sounds). Speaking of baths, a good bath tray is another unconventional but thoughtful gift for a known bath lover. Not only will it look gorgeous in their bathroom, it also makes taking a bath that much more luxurious. We love the look of gold or silver accents to give a cool and classy retro feel, or lighter plain wood for a more organic feel. Check out this  Swivel Bath Tray from Anthropologie or theEldred Bath Caddy from West Elm to relax in the bath with a bottle of your essentials.

Lastly, any fitness lover would love a ClassPass membershipo. Check out the best ClassPass workouts for a fun way to level up your workout game.
