'Tis officially the season for gift-giving. For us, that's a full month in which we'll be providing gift ideas for everyone on your list with our Unwrapped holiday gift guides. So make your holiday shopping a breeze this season, and let us help you find gifts for all the people in your life.
2019 is coming to a close, do you have a VSCO girl in your life yet? Chances are you probably do — the "modern-day version of the Ugg-wearing basic" has become a cultural phenomenon over the past few months. There's been explainer upon explainer floating around the internet in an attempt to truly define this particular type of girl. Some easy ways to spot one include scrunchies, an oversized T-shirt, shorts, a shell necklace, Birkenstocks, and a Hydro Flask, along with the general expression that's actually a lot of fun to type out: "sksksksksk."
These obvious signifiers make holiday shopping for the exemplary VSCO girl pretty effortless. So if you happen to have a loved one who is aspiring to be one (or is already self-proclaimed as one), then, ahead, we have plenty of gift options for you to dive into this season.
Fjällräven, Kånken Water Resistant Backpack, $80, available at Nordstrom.
It's not about the clout pack or latest "It" mini bag for VSCO girls. This roomy, Swedish-made backpack must be in tow at all times.
Hydro Flask, Wide-Mouth Vacuum Water Bottle, $39.95, available at REI.
Another must-have for the VSCO girl arsenal. Extra points if it's covered in stickers.
Joolz by Martha Calvo, Single Gold Center Puka Choker, $88, available at Revolve.
With one single *gold* shell, this necklace will likely stand out among a sea of VSCO girls.
Ganni, Seersucker Check Scrunchie, $25, available at Shopbop.
Scrunchies are readily available practically anywhere, but this one from Ganni can be one's own Status Scrunchie, if that ever is a thing.
Birkenstock, Boston Shearling Birkenstock, $165, available Free People.
Since the winter season is too cold for Birkenstock sandals, we suggest a warm and cozy pair of the brand's clogs lined with soft shearling.
Fujifilm, UO Exclusive Instax Mini 9 Instant Camera, $69, available at Urban Outfitters.
Sure, the name of this particular subset is a nod to digital photo filters, but that doesn't mean all VSCO girls are anti-analog. This instant camera's film photos will serve as quirky decor for anyone's bedroom or dorm.
CAMPFY, Stainless Steel Boba Straw Multi-Color Set, $12.95, available at Amazon.
Ban plastic straws! Save the turtles! Gift this colorful set of wide metal straws for bubble or boba tea, smoothie, and Starbucks frappuccino runs.
The Sis Kiss, Bling Ear Pod Case, $20, available at The Sis Kiss.
Just like iPhones and Hydro Flasks, an AirPod case should always be personalized, too. Might we suggest this bright and sparkly one?
Wildflower, Black Cherries Apple Watch Band, $50, available at Wildflower.
An Apple Watch Band adorned with cute cherries? Sign us up. Sksksksk. (Did we do that right?)
Vans, Checkerboard Slip On, $50, available at Vans.
We surmise that when VSCO girls aren't sporting Birks, then a pair of slip-on Vans are in heavy rotation. Swap the classic black-and-white style with this subtle, blush pink pair.
Donni, Mini Sherpa Henley Sweatshirt, $169, available at Donni.
Should the VSCO girl in your life want to replace her oversized T-shirt for something warmer yet still cozy, we recommend this stylish henley accented with tortoiseshell buttons.
Madewell, Cowrie Shell Choker Necklace, $22.80 (was $38), available at Shopbop.
Consider this the fancier version of shell necklaces acquired from walking the Boardwalk in the summer.
Levi's, Dad Women's Jeans, $98, available at Levi's
While we recommend thrifting for a pair of jeans to better suit the VSCO girl's sartorial needs, these oversized, lightwashed ones from Levi's will still do the trick.
Champion Life, Women's Reverse Weave Shorts, $45, available at Champion.
Add to her neverending supply of shorts with this pair from Champion, made from the brand's signature reverse weave material we all know and love.
Mario Badescu, Facial Spray Travel Trio, $15, available at Sephora.
VSCO girls reportedly prefer skin care over actual makeup, so this set of facial sprays — by beloved-by-teens brand Mario Badescu — is the perfect stocking stuffer this holiday season.
Brandy Melville, Erica Niagara Falls Sweatshirt, $48, available at Brandy Melville.
A gift from Brandy Melville? How can any VSCO girl resist?! This Niagara Falls merch sweatshirt adds a cool vintage vibe.
Apple, iPhone 11 Pro Silicone Case in Beryl, $39, available at Apple.
No new iPhone 11 should be left without a case. This silicone version in a deliciously mint hue is on-trend enough for all of the mirror selfies.
Glossier, Balm Dotcom in Birthday, $12, available at Glossier.
This popular no-makeup-makeup brand's Balm Dotcom comes in a festive Birthday (cake-flavored!) version that adds just the right amount of shimmer.
