The Grand Gift Guide

Cole Haan Gift Guide

I’ve talked about my gifting philosophy several times on the blog, but in case you missed it, I’m a firm believer in gifting functional gifts that people will use and love or gifting things that people want, but would never buy for themselves. These make the BEST gifts, in my opinion. This also helps prevent your gift from being re-gifted, donated, or shoved in the junk drawer. Since I’m all about gifting people what they want, I’m so excited to be teaming up with Cole Haan this season to share their very functional and amazing gift ideas with you.

Cole Haan’s Grand Gift Guide has something for everyone on your list. Search gifts under $200, under $100, for Men, Women, for the visionaries, and for the innovators. They really do have it all. I know many of you messaged me about seasonal pieces, like a rain coat, winter boot, and commuting footwear. I took all of this into consideration when I picked these awesome gift ideas – I wanted to be able to review them and share my thoughts in case you’re in the market for one of these pieces or you want to gift one this season.

The Generation ZEROGRAND sneaker in Jaguar Print Haircalf is perfect for the commuter in your life. This sneaker is nice hybrid between a sneaker and oxford. They’re work appropriate, but you could also run to catch the train. Also, the jaguar print is absolutely stunning. If you have any animal print lovers in your life, these make such a great gift! I find them to run a little big, so I would size down a half size. The ZEROGRAND Explore Hiker Boot is a great winter boot. The leather and suede uppers are waterproof, the footbed is luxuriously cushioned, and there’s rubber pods for traction and durability. These are surprisingly lightweight and super comfortable. I will for sure be taking these with me on my snow trip next month. These would be a great gift for anyone who loves exploring the outdoors or lives in the PNW. If you’re in the market for a rain jacket, the ZEROGRAND City Jacket is perfect. It’s crafted with details designed to shield you against the wind and keep you warm. It has a drawstring waist, which is super flattering. The biggest surprise, the xs fits really well on my petite frame. Rain coats can be hit or miss for me and this one hits all the marks – fits well, chic, and keeps me dry.
