gen z
We turn to our favorite Gen Zers time and time again to help us get with the times, stay in the know, and make sense of the latest and greatest generational vocab that has made its way into our lives and onto our TikTok For You Pages. They’re our certified cool sisters, cousins, friends, and coworkers, and this holiday season, we’re going to use the opportunity to say “we’ve still got it” by gifting them something they’ll actually love. If you’re looking to wow the trendiest person in your life, look no further. These Gen Z-approved gifts have your back.

The Everygirl’s gift guide is curated by our editorial team with some items hand-picked by editors from our sponsors. If you buy something through our links, we may earn an affiliate commission, at no cost to you. As always, we only choose items we genuinely love, use, have purchased ourselves, or recommend.

In this world, there are two universal truths: one is that Jennifer Anniston simply doesn’t age, and the other is that some way, somehow, Rachel Green’s Friends outfits remain in style as time goes on. That’s why we’ve replicated every iconic Thanksgiving outfit Rachel ever wore, from her football look to what she cooked her infamous trifle in.

Here’s the truth: while the holidays are undoubtedly the most wonderful time of the year, they can also feel stressful, lonely, and yes, even make you cry. If all you want for Christmas is an uninterrupted nap, here are seven ways to avoid getting emotionally drained this season.

The holidays are quickly approaching, and the chilly months of November through January are notoriously harsh on more than just our skin — they take a hard blow to our wallets as well. Take a look at these 10 ways you can save money during the holidays, without missing out on any of the merry fun.

Not everyone can whip up a multi-course Thanksgiving dinner like they’re Ina Garten, and that’s totally OK. But if you’re still hoping to contribute to a Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving table, you’ll love these 15 easy (but still delicious) recipes.
