Stylish Gifts For Your Friends With Great Taste

By Elly Ayres

Discovering the perfect gifts for your most stylish friends is no easy feat, especially when your whole group’s taste is on-trend. This time around, win the gifting game with cleverly designed items your friends haven’t found just yet.

In partnership with Fossil, we’re helping you outfit your favorite people with holiday picks inspired by the accessories line’s latest drop. From a mystical moon-and-stars necklace for your friend who always knows when Mercury's in retrograde to a roomy weekender bag for your vacation-bound bestie, Fossil has the gift selects that even the pickiest people want to unwrap. Ahead, all the presents topping our list for friends with great taste — if we do say so ourselves.

For the friend who opens their home on the reg for your whole crew, a heart-and-key pendant necklace and chain bracelet (complete with heart charm, of course) represents their generosity. A rose-gold smartwatch with music control and picture-taking capabilities (through phone syncing) keeps the party going, while classic board games, gourmet treats, and craft cocktail tools ensure they remain the host with the most.

This friend is happiest relaxing at home surrounded by all of their favorite things. Gift them space with the prismatic galaxy watch and moon-and-star pendant necklace, or even dreamy evil eye earrings for keeping bad vibes at bay. A whimsical candle, glitter lip balm, and body butter ensure they can ride out winter while feeling their best. What’s more chill than that?

Keep your jetsetting friend’s eyes on the skies with holiday gifts that make getaways even better. A trusty duffle with roomy pockets is the ultimate weekender bag, while a scalloped necklace combo adds shine to any plane-bound look. A smartwatch with email alerts means last-minute gate changes won't surprise them, and their passport is protected from scanners with a sleeve designed to shield card chips. Wireless headphones, a ’gram-worthy eye mask, and travel journal guarantee they’ll arrive in style.

Whether they’re booking it to yoga or en route from errands, this friend is always on the go. A bright smartwatch with activity tracking and messenger notifications gets them from Point A to Point B, while a convertible backpack-turned-tote makes lugging their workout gear easy (and stylish). Add a power bank, multi-tasking lip and cheek tint, and other sporty picks, and your friend’s one step closer to mastering that double-booked schedule.
