The end of this year is just like every other in that we’re scrambling to find perfect gifts for everyone on our list. But what makes this year different, of course, is that it’s 2020 – and to that we say, time to *wrap it up*, sweetie. So, in the spirit of thinking ahead to greener pastures, we’ve compiled a gift guide of items with the new year in mind. Think of these goodies as nods toward positive resolutions for your friends and fam. For example, the Levi’s® “Ex-Boyfriend” Sherpa Trucker Jacket should help your roommate finally put her past relationship to rest. Or maybe you have a friend looking to ditch old trends for the new, so how about: replace that bucket hat with a Bucket Bag from Saks OFF 5TH.

We love the idea of associating an item with a New Year’s resolution to help bring it to life (trust, we know the tendency of reverting back to "the old me” come February 1). But the promise of 2021 just feels different, and we know by now that it's on us to cultivate inner-peace and happiness. So cheers to the New Year!
