Cozy Holiday Gift Guide
We know a thing or two about the cozy season at L.L.Bean, as we typically sell a pair of our beloved Wicked Good Slippers every seven seconds during the month of December. This year, cozy season started early, as many Americans began spending much of their time at home in light of the pandemic. With the holidays approaching, we asked our merchants (the people who choose the products that make it onto our store shelves) what their go-to gifts are this year and what’s on their personal wish list.
WICKED PLUSH ROBE:
“There is nothing better than cozying up in your favorite robe in the winter, and nothing will keep you warmer and cozier than our Wicked Plush Robe. Made from the same amazing fabric as our beloved Wicked Plush Throw, this Robe won’t shed or pill, and it comes in a gorgeous array of colors. It’s the perfect gift as-is, but can be made even better with a personalized monogram!”
Mara H., Women’s Apparel Merchant
It doesn't get cozier than this! We chose the most incredibly plush fleece to give our sherpa-lined hoodie an extra soft interior and amazing warmth. Perfect as a layer for cold weather adventures, or with your favorite PJ’s for lounging. A winter wardrobe staple!
Stacy F., Women’s Apparel Merchant
“These classic sweatpants are super soft, cozy and easy to wear in the most comfortable pull-on style. And they look especially nice with our 1912 Sweatshirts ! I’m looking forward to cooler evenings when I can snuggle up next to the fire in these jogger-style sweatpants and my Wicked Good Slippers!”
Kelsie P., Women’s Apparel Merchant
L.L.BEAN COZY PULLOVER:
“My go-to piece, personally and for gifts! It strikes that important balance between active and everyday comfort. The super soft, performance fabric allows me to do outdoor activities with my friends and family in style, while simultaneously being able to wear it for a night on the town. It’s a must-have in my travel bag because this piece literally does it all! I couldn’t get through the four seasons without it.”
Suzanne C., Women’s Active Apparel Merchant
BEAN'S CLASSIC RAGG WOOL HENLEY:
“100% lambswool and 100% authentic. The rag wool yarn construction gives this sweater its rugged good looks with its subtle color variation. A versatile Henley neckline makes this style perfect for layering, and the ribbed collar is just high enough to keep the chill off your neck.”
Jenn W., Men’s Apparel Merchant
FLANNEL LINED RUGBY ROBE:
“Our Flannel Lined Rugby Robe is classic and current, with the ease of your favorite sweatshirt and the exceptional softness of our exclusive Portuguese flannel. Perfect for lounging around the house, this flannel-lined robe offers incredible comfort and warmth. Rated 4.7 stars by our customers.”
Amy M., Director of Men’s Apparel
WICKED WARM ORGANIC COTTON SHIRT:
"Up in Maine, when something is great, we use WICKED to describe it. Our Wicked Warm substantial cotton fabric is a heavyweight blend of organic cotton, recycled polyester and spandex for a beefy, comfy and soft feel that’ll keep you toasty warm, without any of the bulk."
Todd P., Men’s Apparel Merchant
BEAN'S SWEATER FLEECE VEST:
“The Sweater Fleece Vest is my go-to gift for the holidays, year after year. I find that now more than ever, I’m wearing my vest all the time. Whether at home in my sweatpants, out walking the dog, or layering under my ski jacket, this is the ultimate versatile fleece. Offered at a sharp price point and in a range of colors, the Sweater Fleece Vest is a ‘can’t miss’ gift!”
Adrian G., Men’s Active Apparel Merchant
