MeUndies
This holiday season, surround yourself with love — and comfort. MeUndies wants to help you gift some Me time with the softest and most comfortable Undies, Bralettes, Cozy Socks, PJ Sets, Slippers, and more.

One of their most-loved gifts of the season is the MeUndies' Unisex Hooded Modal Robe ($88). There are robes and then there are robes. If you're shopping for someone who doesn't deserve the absolute best, then go with a plain Jane robe. No bells. No whistles. But you are the ultimate gifter, and you want the are-you-freaking-kidding-me reaction you deserve. With a hood for added comfort, a relaxed fit, and pockets, this is the robe everyone and their mother has been looking for.

Get even closer to your special someone with Matching Pairs by MeUndies (prices vary). With fun colors and limited-edition prints, you can express yourself in matching Undies and more. With an easy-to-use online MeUndies MatchMe portal, you can start sharing your new favorite secret. Once you try their sustainable and super-soft MicroModal fabric, there's no going back. Seriously, it's that soft. With different cuts for different butts available in sizes XS-4XL, there's something for everybooty. Go home for the holidays with the gifts that keep on giving, even after the holidays.

The Original Muck Boot Company

If you live in a cold-weather destination, you and your loved ones will likely be slushing through snow and slush before you know it. Or maybe they just like to muck around on hikes or other activities and could use a footwear refresh. For more than 20 years, the Original Muck Boot Company has been weatherproofing some of our favorite activities.

Favorite picks include the Men's Outscape Chelsea ($120), a 100% waterproof, slip-on ankle boot that's lightweight, flexible and durable thanks to its printed rubber coating over neoprene. For deep piles of snow, the Tall Boot collection offers even more protection, and for those who like to step out in style, the new Men's Apex Mid Zip ($140) is packed with features like a lock-down zipper closure and moisture-wicking mesh lining in an eye-catching soft green with speckled heel and orange trim.

Do your soles have soul? If you're wearing sustainable socks, they do. Socks are a fun and affordable gift option since size options fit most people. But it's what you don't see in Teddy Locks socks that are the real gift.

The entire supply chain is U.S.-based, comprised of small, local businesses who collectively turn "trash" into cozy and colorful socks. Made with discarded single-use plastic bottles and recycled nylon, Teddy Locks' soft, durable socks are a way to give with purpose.

Go with the Best of the Bunch bundle ($52.25), which includes five pairs of socks in various designs, or mix-and-match your picks such as the Lilac Crew Socks ($16), the nautically-inspired Odyssey Set ($30), or always-in-style Polka Dot Crew ($30).
