When it comes to holiday gifts, clothes may seem more practical than playful. But they can be exciting to give—and to get!—if you give careful thought to what you're buying and why you're gifting it. The trick, we've learned, is to create a deeper connection between the present and the person receiving it.

What little one wouldn't love a brand new PJ dress to wear at their first sleepover, after all? Or parent who wouldn't love staying warm in a cozy, lined jacket perfect for taking the family pet on winter walks? We've put some time into finding clothing, sleepwear and accessories that our kids and partners not only need this season but also want . (Like really, really want.)

Here are 10 of our favorite pieces of clothing from Gap's holiday collection that would make perfect gifts for your loved ones:

Holiday Ribbed Sleep Set

Loungewear for lazy winter weekends. They'll want to wear this red-and-white striped pajama set, featuring a soft henley top and leggings, while watching a marathon of Hallmark holiday movies.


Kid Girl Flannel PJs

Make it a plaid party! This flannel PJ dress in traditional red tartan puts a feminine twist on this traditionally-favorite pajama set.


Women's Crazy Stripe Gloves

For the teen who's always texting her friends, these smartly designed touchscreen gloves let them continue to type no matter the weather conditions.


Lightweight Puffer Vest

The perfect layering piece, we love that this slim-fit quilted vest is filled with an upcycled down alternative—recycled bottles!


Men's Sherpa Icon Denim Jacket

Swap their favorite denim jacket for a winterized version lined with cozy sherpa fleece. The dark indigo dye will wear in just the right way over time to create that cool lived-in look.


Ruffle Denim One-Piece

Does this ruffle-trim romper come in our size? Although it would probably still be cuter for our little ones, we can't help but covet this cuteness.


Girl's Llama Slippers

Adorned with colorful pom-poms and sweet animal ears, your little one will have a llama fun wearing these ridiculously cute slippers around the house.


Toddler Crazy Stripe Crew

We think this rainbow-hued crewneck toddler sweater is the perfect way to infuse a little sunshine into cold weather season.


Boy Cable Button Mock

Henley buttons give this soft cable-knit sweater a casual vibe that looks great over your child's favorite tee or long-sleeve shirt.


Crazy Stripe Pom Pom Beanie

A cold-weather essential, this hat combines a few of our favorite things: rainbows, stripes and faux-fur pom-poms.
