Holiday Shopping Guide: Gifts for the Young Professional


At this age when it comes to gifts, I don’t know what to ask for. (I’m indecisive lol) If you’re buying for a young professional (either male or female) like me, you are sure to have a hard time! Before you give up and opt for a gift card (which isn’t a bad idea either), here are a few ideas to help make your shopping experience easier & make your young professional a little more stylish. 


The weather outside is frightful, so make sure your young professional is equipped with a warm, stylish coat or trench coat. Guess Double Breasted Bouclé Coat & BOSS ‘Coxtan’ Trim Fit Wool Car Coat are a couple of options. 


There aren’t many “snow days” in the real world, so appropriate boots for walking to work are essential. Durability is the goal here, so try Adirondack II for women & Butte Pendleton for men by UGG. The boots run small so make sure you make a comparison, which is located on the website. 




Timing is everything, so giving the gift of a Marc Jacobs Amy Mini RoseGold Watch or a Marc Jacobs Mens Fergus Stainless Steel Watch will keep your young professional on time (or at least try).  

You could also try Gloves and Jewelry, it’s the little things that matter!

Tote Bag or Briefcase

As we mentioned in our previous post The Sturdy & Stylish Work Bag, women and men alike need a sturdy workbag to carry work and personal necessities. Check out our previous posts for some ideas on totes & bags. If you’re looking for a briefcase, the Kenneth Cole “The Last Op-Port-Unity” Briefcase is an expensive option we recommend.


Subscriptions are perfect for giving a variety of options in one, like a modern day stocking. One new subscription to add to the list is a Bento Box. The box is filled with a selection of 4-6 versatile, wardrobe staples that are hand-selected based on personal style and fit preferences. It’s free to try. You only pay for the pieces you keep. 

Looking for other options, here are a few more to add to your list:

  • Cardigan – for the offices that are just as cold as the outside

  • Tie Clips or Cufflinks – Details complete outfits

  • Starbuck/Dunkin Donuts gift card (people love their coffee)

  • Books and magazine – great for personal and professional growth

  • Home Office Supplies

  • Headphones – They come in handy for the morning & evening commutes 

  • Grooming Set – Help him feel and look great as he walks into the office

  • Luxury Facial Wash – 

  • Business Card Holder

  • Set of Golf Clubs – We all need to work on our game!

  • Personalized Stationary – Handwritten letters NEVER go out of style

  • Laptop Cases – Now the young pro can retire the backpack for a more functioning gift
