For the ladies in the house: I love sweaters that have some kind of dramatic effect. Like this cocoon cardigan; the back is so interesting. AND THIS FRINGED SWEATER actually made me "oooooh".
Of course, a generic sweater comes first and foremost, but I super special sweater, in my mind, makes the perfect present.
With a generic sweater:
Some Random Folk: Oh, what'd you get for Christmas?
You: This sweater!
Some Random Folk: Cool.
With a super amazing sweater:
Some Random Folk: That sweater is super fierce.
You: I got it for Christmas!
Some Random Folk: Wow... I wish I was loved.
For the Fly Boys: I think a rather traditional sweater does the trick. Over the summer, I (attempted) to make my boyfriend wear a "Grandpa Cardigan", but he wasn't feeling it. Unless your man frequents the cardigan, I advise a pull-over sweater. V-Necks, I think, would create a decent gift: a little flash but still classy.
there are THREEEEE things one must keep in mind when buying a sweater
1) Quality, purchase a real and snuggly fabrice
2) Size, usually a bigger sweater is better
3) Color, classic color for dramatic sweaters, fun colors for generic sweaters
And with that, I'm done!
