We all have that one friend (or several, TBH) who always shows up to every event dressed to the damn nines. They’re the kind of friend who always knows what’s trending—and how to wear even the wildest pieces without looking like a complete lunatic. This holiday season, your most stylish friend deserve the cutest fashion-lover gifts that the retail world has to offer. Whether you know their style like the back of your hand, or want to surprise your fashionista friends with something they might never expect, I’ve got your back with these fashion-forward gift ideas.

While style is a very personal thing, even majorly unique fashionistas occasionally succumb to current trends. Leopard print, puffy sleeves, beaded bags—they’re all “in” right now, and odds are, your most stylish friends are (at least somewhat) into them. If you’ve been seeing your friends wear certain trends, adding to their collection with a gift in the same vein is always a smart move. Say your stylish BFF is always wearing headbands—another trending item right now. Finding a unique and adorable headband to give them as a gift is both thoughtful, practical and stylish. All you have to do is pay attention to what your fashion-forward friends having been donning, and keep the trends alive with your holiday gifts.

Of course, finding the perfect fashion-lover gift is typically easier said than done. If you’re struggling to pick out the ideal stylish gift for your well-dressed friends, this gift guide is here to help. Below, you’ll find 19 fashionable gift ideas that any trendsetting person would love. Whether it’s a chic piece your friend can keep forever in their home or an accessory sure to be the cherry on top of any outfit, these fashion-forward gifts are about to be your saving grace.
