minimalist
We all have at least one person in our lives that just looks cool and elegant without trying too hard, even if they're just wearing a simple T-shirt and a cute pair of jeans. It can be challenging to find a gift for someone who already seems like they're so put together. We at the Everygirl absolutely love the holiday season and that’s why we have come together to create a list of some amazing small yet meaningful minimalist gifts for your friends and family. From silky pajama bottoms, travel-size perfume kits, and stunning earrings, this list has it all.

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.

Going home for the holidays is a feat you should be applauded for. Don’t get me wrong, I love my family with my whole heart, but everyone’s stressed about something, there’s something in the air with the new year approaching, and it brings up a lot of random people and situations you thought you’d completely forgotten about.

There’s nothing like finding new ways to wear something you already have and we’re giving you six new ideas for how to wear your go-to red sweater this holiday season—with everything from a skirt to comfy, knit pants. The holidays are here, and it’s time to bring the spirit to our wardrobes.

Although first impressions aren’t always an accurate representation of who we are, they’re a way for people to create an idea of who they deem us to be. While the holidays are meant for feeling thankful, there tends to be some stress that comes with this festive season—especially if you’re meeting your partner’s family for the first time.

We’ve rounded up some of the tastiest, most universally crowd-pleasing appetizers that will be sure to be a hit at any holiday party you attend—whether it be your own family’s Christmas dinner, or just your office potluck. Bonus: most are incredibly easy to throw together but still look like you’ve got your sh*t together.

When it’s dark by the time you’re leaving work for the day, it can get much harder to find the motivation to keep up with a regular weekday routine and normally joyful hobbies. Going into this year’s winter, I decided to do my research and prepare myself for coping with the dwindling daylight hours and overall lack of sunshine.

The Everygirl's 2021 Holiday Gift Guide is committed to highlighting products and businesses that align with our core values.
We are committed to highlighting BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and other companies that celebrate diversity. We are committed to showcasing environmentally conscious brands and products with a goal of 15% of the gift guide falling into this category. We bring value and variety to our readership and highlight and support small businesses and women-owned businesses. We source size inclusive items that represent different bodies and aesthetics to fit the needs of our entire readership.
