There’s (at least) one in every friend group: They're already on the waitlist for an XL shoulder bag from Sunnei's spring '21 runway show, have a friends-and-family discount at Dover Street Market, and consistently pop up in the first wave of followers of new brands that later appear in Net-A-Porter's Vanguard edit. Their holiday wish list is made up of fashion gifts you wouldn't dare wear, let alone spend an entire paycheck on, but will undoubtedly want more than anything come the next gift-giving season. If you're not this member of your friend group, you probably won't recognize the pieces in the gift guide ahead. But they will. And since they're going to be the one on the receiving end of this giftee-gifted relationship, isn’t that what truly matters?
If you have a friend who fits the bill, then you've come to the right place. The 18-piece gift guide ahead was created with your most fashionable friend in mind, the one who drags you to store openings, sample sales, under-radar vintage shops, and parties where '90s runway shows are projected on the wall. Which means that showing up to whatever totally chic (and socially distant) holiday party they're throwing without a top-notch gift is out of the question.
Click through the slideshow ahead for 18 gifts that even your most fashion-forward friend will love.
