Family Holiday Gift Guide 2018

Give Joy This Holiday Season With Bright, Colorful Gifts Sure to Make Anyone Smile

The best presents are the unexpected ones and, most importantly, the ones we wouldn't normally think of for ourselves. Teaming up with Gap and Coveteur, we're showing how you can give the gift of bold cheerfulness this holiday season — no matter who you're shopping for.

Just because it's cold outside doesn't mean your wardrobe needs to be dreary too. This holiday season, inject some energy into your closet and life with fresh bursts of color — and help others do the same! Through cheerful, warm hues and playful, fun gifts, you can feel confident that you're truly giving the gift of happiness, to everyone from your significant other to your niece. Ahead, find our festive, bright picks for you and your loved ones — smiles all around guaranteed!


Wrap up your friends and family in a cozy hat-and-scarf set. These extra-fun rainbow items are sure to liven up any outdoor look. Gift your interior-design-obsessed friend a statement-worthy coffee table book that's not only beautiful but also serves a purpose. Sunglasses are also a safe bet when gift-giving, as you can never have too many pairs — especially if they're vivacious red! For a one-of-a-kind stocking stuffer, pick up a sweet trinket like this gold fortune cookie box. It's both charming and functional.


Stock up on rainbow brights for the whole family with cheery sweaters and sweats that are both delightful and stylish. These coordinating pieces may even inspire you to take a family photo or two! The best part? They're warm, bold, and machine-washable. If you're shopping for a music-lover, kick your gifting game up a notch with sleek, colorful headphones that are just as fashionable as the person receiving them. Too busy to wrap? Opt for a high-quality beauty product with gorgeous packaging that's too pretty to cover up, or get creative by stashing it inside a pretty clutch or purse.


If you're worried about sizing, you can't go wrong with cold-weather accessories. This rainbow-striped scarf-and-hat combo is a great way to incorporate bold color into any outfit. Featuring bright blue, yellow, and pink hues, these items will definitely be a favorite even on the cloudiest of Winter days. Speaking of gray Winter days, brighten up your loved one's home (literally) with a pretty, sweet-smelling candle perfect for setting a happy, cozy mood.
