Even though something personal or ultra-niche makes for a thoughtfully creative gift idea, choosing a more timeless gift will rarely disappoint—they’ve earned their reputation as a classic for a reason! Who would turn down supremely soft cashmere, luxury leather goods, or a new pair of pajamas? Not to mention that a new candle, piece of jewelry, or fragrance wouldn’t be so bad either. From wish list–worthy handbags to covetable cold weather accessories, it’s no wonder these gifts are consistently requested season after season.
Skip the trendy present and go classic instead. Find more than 50 timeless gifts to give, below.
