A cashmere turtleneck that is soft and stylish
I love turtlenecks! I know they’re not everyone’s style, but a good turtleneck sweater can stand alone or be layered under a jacket. This 100% cashmere turtleneck would make a great gift. The only one star review is from someone complaining when the price went up over 100, but it’s currently hovering around $60. Some reviews say it’s a little thin and you need to wear something under it when it’s cold, which makes it sound like this is a more versatile piece which can be worn in fall and spring. This comes in so many colors! Other options include a v-neck and a crew neck.

A v-neck sweater in every color for under $20
If you would like an inexpensive gift for someone that looks like it cost a lot more, this sweater will fit the bill. It has so many glowing reviews, with people saying it’s the “perfect weight,” not too heavy or light, a “fantastic buy” and a great length that “covers a little over half [my] bum.” Reviewers say it stands up to washing and doesn’t pill either. The crew neck and the turtleneck are also very highly rated, with the turtleneck currently under $15!

A flattering fit and flare dress with a control panel
You can’t go wrong with a fit and flare dress and this under $40 option has over a thousand four and five star reviews. It’s available in so many colors and patterns you may want more than one. Reviewers say it’s true to size and is slimming. They also rave about how it can be worn during the day or dressed up at night. The length is also just right for women of all heights. It’s supposed to be very comfortable, although the fabric may make this a better dress for cold weather rather than then summer.

A crushed velvet dress for the holidays
There are some beautiful velvet dresses available through Prime for the holidays. (I had such a great time researching for this post!) Velvet is a classic in fashion this season and I’m here for it. I’ve gone over the reviews and have selected some of the best options, including a plus sized high waisted faux wrap cocktail midi (shown above, it also comes in green, burgundy and an alternate drape style), a retro faux wrap empire length formal with long sleeves which comes in burgundy, peacock blue and pink, and this long sleeve ankle length stretchy velvet gown which comes in even more colors including purple and black. Check out the over 900 user reviews including photos of women wearing the dress to formal events.

A party dress under $30 with over 2,000 positive reviews
This lovely dress is a number one bestseller in women’s separates and when you see the photos of women wearing it you can see why. It looks gorgeous on just about everyone and comes in options for all tastes and occasions. Women say it’s great to wear for the holidays, to weddings and even to work. Some reviews say to order a size up if you’re in between sizes but others say to just make sure you measure first as it’s true to size. This comes in graphic prints, stripes, plaids, and other options with a solid color top and printed skirt.

A cashmere poncho she will love
This is a reasonably priced cashmere poncho at under $60 which would make an amazing present and comes in over 10 colors. I love ponchos and blanket shawls, it’s like you’re bringing the coziness with you. For that reason there’s something sweet about gifting a poncho to a loved one. This one has buttons but there’s also a pricier version without buttons if you’d prefer. Either way, this would be an appreciated gift.

    Essentially the same thing as every holiday season for the past two decades or so.

    Your headline is me in the 90s, lol. I’m here for all of this. In fact I just ordered a cashmere crewneck, thanks for the link! The price is amazing, the best I’ve seen. I only have one cashmere sweater now and have been wanting to treat myself to another.

    I love that y’all have started doing this!! FYI the clothes don’t look appealing enough in this format to trigger a purchase from me; online models are partly why online shopping is hard. BUT if y’all had an insta or real-life photos to pull from then my likelihood to purchase direct goes through the roof. It’s the same train of thought that makes rent the runway so appealing. Seeing something on various body types helps you envision the clothing for yourself.

    My coworker wore the retro faux rap empire dress to our holiday party last week – she looked incredible and it was pretty decent quality!

    I love the velvet dress so pretty! I may have to try the Dre’s with 2000 reviews. You can’t go wrong with so many choices of colors.
