This year’s Highsnobiety Gift Guide is all about the presents that’ll make a difference in these new and strange times. From gifts that encourage connection with loved ones, to self-love suggestions you entirely deserve at the end of 2020.
The holiday season is almost definitely the most expensive period of the year, every year. Copping gifts for the whole family, extended family, friends, and your don’t-even-see-anymore-colleagues is not easy on the bank account. We’d all love to see the ones we love unwrap fresh pairs of collab Dunks on the 25th, for their sake and ours. But it’s just not feasible.
We did a little research and it turns out that there’s a wealth of gifts out there for less than $100 which will still have you sitting pretty come December 25.
They say the best gifts come in small packages, but this guide is adjusting that to the best gifts come with small price tags. We’re here, with the help of Urban Outfitters, to prove that even for under $100, you can tick off your Christmas list and keep a little dollar back for some peripheral presents, too, because nobody wants to have only one present under the tree, no matter how extravagant it is. Affordable gifts or not, the below won’t end up in the bin.
Christmas is about getting cozy and this pair of sherpa slippers is winning in that department. If you know someone who, even through lockdown, still hasn’t found the perfect slippers then this pair is the one.
Pharrell showed us earlier this year that color-blocked adidas staples are a flex. While this half-zip doesn’t have Pharrell’s endorsement, it has ours.
The North Face gear is made to take a beating so this pure cotton, long-sleeved tee makes the ideal companion for winter.
Victrola’s Bluetooth Record Player removes most of the hassle surrounding vinyl collecting and listening that stops most people even trying it. This all-in-one player removes the need for endless wires and equipment, just connect a Bluetooth speaker and start spinning.
Crocs have had a year for the ages, racking up numerous high-profile collaborations and entering the resale market with a bang. This pair of classic yellow Crocs was styled by Pharrell earlier this year, so it’s as good an entry into the new age of Crocs as any.
A polaroid camera is always a good present, and it comes into its own at Christmas because it’s unrivaled in how easy it makes documenting the occasions you want to remember.
The pearl necklace is timeless, and one that’s been made big again in 2020 by the likes of Harry Styles and A$AP Rocky. This affordable option is an unorthodox and eye-catching addition to their accessory rotation.
Keith Haring’s unmistakable art graces the front of this classic canvas tote and the tote is, as we all know, the most useful bag anyone can own.
Patchwork pieces have had a resurgence lately, helped along by the style of Bode, Needles, and a number of other brands looking for a more authentic angle of luxury. This patchwork bucket hat is a timely gift for the trendsetter.
You’re going to have to play some games whether you like it or not, so you may as well get one that you’ll enjoy. We’re Not Really Strangers looks to spark serious, interesting debate with a range of deep conversation-starters.
