Athleta Is Your One-Stop Shop For Gifts For Women
You probably don't need us to remind you that the holiday season is fast approaching. Whether you consider yourself a gift-giving pro or more of the down-to-the-wire type, we all have that one person who is notoriously hard to shop for. This season, Athleta is coming through with versatile, transitional pieces that will take some of the mystery (and stress) out of your holiday shopping, and we've curated 10 pieces for every activity for that hard-to-buy-for woman in your life. If you're looking for a great gift for your mom, sister, best friend, partner — whoever — consider these editor's picks.
Cascade Down Vest
If you're looking for a gift that blends style and performance perfectly, look no further than the Cascade Down Vest ($229). This oversized, 100 percent recycled polyester jacket packs a punch of warmth with its lightweight, responsible down filling and full-coverage fit.
Alpine Turtleneck Sweater
For the person who values versatility, the Alpine Turtleneck Sweater ($229) is a must. This do-it-all wool-cashmere sweater can easily transition from winter activities to dinner. Plus, it has sweat-wicking properties to ensure it stays dry and breathable.
Westbound Sherpa Jacket
The Westbound Sherpa Jacket ($129, originally $159) is another option that simply can't steer you wrong this gifting season. The minimalist-style jacket combines trendy sherpa trim with a classic moto-style cut. It's ideal for the woman who hits up yoga, the office, and dinner with friends all in one day.
Keys Intention Pant
Just in time for the holidays comes the latest collection from Athleta and Alicia Keys. Although a number of pieces from the collection would make for great gifts, we're loving the Keys Intention Pant ($159) in vibrant foliage orange. This free-flowing pant remains breathable and comfy for post-workout wear, commuting, and more.
Aurora Seamless Crop Rib Tank
Have someone whose workouts don't slow down even in winter? Gift them the Aurora Seamless Crop Rib Tank ($44) to keep up with their active spirit. This ribbed crop tank is studio and mat ready thanks to a close-to-skin, seamless, and chafe-free fit.
Salutation Stash Rib Flare
From yoga to lunch, the Salutation Stash Rib Flare ($119) is the perfect match for the meditation and yoga guru in your life. Not only is this ribbed pant built to move and stretch, but it's also designed to give the wearer serious comfort with its sweat-wicking, breathable fabric.
Runners can be hard to shop for as they tend to have opinions or superstitions about the gear they need. But if you ask us, the Rainier Tight ($109) is one gift you can't go wrong with. Its plush SuperSonic fabric means the wearer gets a soft, brushed interior that's ideal for cold-weather workouts.
