How’s your holiday shopping coming along? If you’ve not started, we’ve got 27 new gift ideas to help get you started. You can also check our other favorite things and old gift guides for more suggestions.

If your family is going skiing this winter, this Fair Isle Jacquard Sweater would make a great gift.

For the Francophile design lover in your life, I recommend Paris by Design: An Inspired Guide to the City’s Creative Side.

Bake an apple or pumpkin pie for your relative in this beautiful Marian Pie Dish and leave it with them as a gift.

How cute are these Cody Foster Ornaments?! There are so many options that there is definitely something for everyone. You could tie one on the outside of packages for all your family members or give a funny one to each of your friends. I especially love all the musicians like Freddie Mercury, David Bowie, Willie Nelson, Prince, and Amy Winehouse for the music lover in your life or all the food for a chef or foodie. And your contractor definitely deserves the tape measure. They keep adding ornaments so keep checking for fun options. There are also more ornaments like a beer can, pop tart, caviar tin, everything bagel, and avocado here.

This Jr. Astronaut Backpack would be a cute travel bag for the space loving little person in your life. You can find more astronaut and space related gifts here.

How about this Ralph’s Tea Gift Set for tea loving office friend? They also have coffee gifts.

You could decorate your house with this plaid throw blanket or give it as a chic gift.

This Mark Rothko: The Exhibitions at Pace book was just released last week so I guarantee your art loving friend doesn’t already own it.

I always like the idea of gifting every member of your family a different colored set of monogramed leather luggage tags, especially if you’re going on a group trip.

I asked someone I know on Instagram for her skincare secret and she answered La Mer. Give this La Mer Holiday Beauty Set to the special woman in your life.

Someone gave me this Skinny Lighted Mini Vanity Mirror this summer and it came in handy when I had to stay in a shared house in a bedroom with no mirrors. It’s a great gift for the makeup wearer or selfie taker in your life.

Each piece of this terminal luggage is available separately and in 10-12 colors. They would make a great gift for a new graduate or someone going to study abroad next semester. Monogram them so someone doesn’t take the wrong bag off the belt.

Any designer would appreciate Architectural Digest at 100: A Century of Style.

This The Art of Shaving Full Size Kit in Sandalwood will keep your man smooth and smelling good.

Include this Camo Canvas Travel Pouch with the shaving set for a man who travels or your college age son.

Great Fishing Lodges of North America: Fly Fishing’s Finest Destinations is an exclusive peek into North America’s most storied fishing lodges that is perfect for the fly fishing fanatic in your life.

Place a pair of these women’s tartan lodge moccasins in the room of all your daughters or houseguests. For men, I suggest the buffalo check moccasins, for little girls, the glitter moccasins, and for boys, the wild tiger or lodge moccasins.

I picked out this green wallet because I liked the color and then read that it’s a RFID-protected wallet. That means it can protect from from a very particular brand of electronic pickpocketing, called RFID skimming.

This men’s Fair Isle Wool Sweater is on sale for 55% off now which makes it chic and a great deal.

I don’t have kids but I wish I did because I’d buy them every single thing by Maileg. The Mouse Vacation would be a cute gift to your kids if you’re headed to a warm weather destination over the holidays.

The only skincare device I don’t have is a jade roller but it would be great gift for anyone who travels or needs to depuff in the morning. This Jade Facial Trio Set includes a Jade Facial Roller, Gua Sha Sculpty Tool, and mini Eye Roller.

You really can’t go wrong with a gift from Buly 1803 like this Winged Victory of Samothrace diffuser stone. It’s available in other scents too.

Nothing says the holidays like Tartan Wool Trousers. Gift them to the man in your life early so he can wear them to holiday parties.

I wish they made Banwood First Go! Scoot Bikes when I was little. They are a cute gift for kids but there are many other colors and bike options available here.

Ralph Lauren: In His Own Fashion was just released on November 20th so it’s another book that your recipient probably doesn’t own. It’s a “high-level, yet intimate, reflection on the life and work of Ralph Lauren shows how a preppy young boy from the Bronx created one of the most recognizable brands in American fashion” that was created as part of designer’s 50th anniversary. 

How about giving this Merino Wool & Cashmere Scarf to your doorman to help keep him warm this winter along with his holiday bonus. It’s available in five different colorways.

This Ralph Lauren 888 Collection Candle smells amazing and after it burns down, the recipient can use it for pens and pencils.

The perfect book for the fashionista in your life is definitely The International Best Dressed List: The Official Story.

The “it” bag of the year is the Bottega Veneta Pouch Bag if you’re looking for a special gift for the lady in your life.

This cute tool bench is perfect for any little budding carpenter in your life.

Dennis Hopper: In Dreams: Scenes from the Archive was also just released last week. “Editor and designer Michael Schmelling has selected more than 100 photographs from Hopper’s archive (most of them unpublished) for this intimate book, and together they reveal the restless energy and curiosity of Hopper’s eye, as well as his unique place in the culture of 1960s America.” Sounds like the perfect book for a photography, movie, and/or Americana buff.  

This 3 Pack of Festive Socks is adorable but there are tons of other sock designs that would make a sweet early Christmas gifts.

I love the multitude of designs available at Papier on their planners, notebooks, and stationery. Any of them would make great gifts. Everything can be personalized too which adds a lovely touch. Order cards for your kids to write thank you notes or a notebook for a special trip or a planner for 2020.

Any lover of Chanel or the artwork of Jean-Philippe Delhomme would appreciate Chanel: The Making of a Collection this holiday.

How about a Birkin Basket Bag for someone who’s headed to the beach soon?

If you can’t afford a Lalanne sheep, this Maze Medium Sheep is the next best thing.

Wrap up all your presents in paper from this Rifle Paper Co. Holiday Wrapping Paper Book.

Happy Shopping and Happy Holidays!
