If you’re still in need of a Christmas gift for your wife or girlfriend (hey, stranger things have happened), the surest bet of all is a cozy sweater she can pull on immediately to watch Christmas movies and sip cocoa in—and then wear all winter long for years to come. Swing by your nearest Nordstrom today to pick one out—maybe toss a diamond watch or a Darth Vader Pez dispenser in the gift box with it—and suddenly you look like a pro at this whole Christmas thing.
Keep reading for seven sweater picks from our catalog stylist Stacey Cunningham, plus tips on matching them perfectly to your lady-friend’s winning personality.
If she values tradition (but only in moderate doses): This sassy twist on classic Fair Isle from Topshop is for her.
If she cares more about looking cute than staying warm: This mesh, polka-dot pullover by Tildon will be her new favorite now and into spring.
If she prefers art galleries to rom-coms: Helmut Lang’s thoughtfully composed asymmetrical sweater is a wearable work of art.
If she’s a master conversationalist: She’ll love letting this chatty sweatshirt from Wildfox do the talking.
If she’d rather watch Nightmare Before Christmas than Miracle on 34th Street: Rag & Bone’s black-on-black, leather-sleeved sweatshirt should be right up her alley.
If her prized possession is a blanket her grandma knitted: A sumptuously woven macramé in winter white will be a close runner-up.
