It’s already mid-December, and the time is ticking if you haven’t done your holiday shopping yet. Last minute doesn’t mean lack of effort, and we’re here to ensure you get the special people in your life a great gift without the headache. 

Streetwear is at an exciting crossroads in 2023. With influencers from luxury, new trends emerging from the Y2K era, and an emphasis on spinning any sub-culture to a more fashion-forward lens, it’s arguably easier now than ever to shop during the holidays. If you have a special someone who’s locked into the latest and greatest trends in current culture, this curated list will have something they can enjoy. Here are the best holiday gifts for the streetwear-obsessed in your life.

Stussy Cosmos Reversible Jacket

We’ve featured Stüssy zip-ups a ton throughout our fall/winter editorial series and for good reason. For years, the fusion of Stüssy apparel and wool zip-ups has proven to be a legendary combination. Every fall/winter season, the streetwear powerhouse introduces new iterations of the design, and among the standouts is the Stüssy Cosmos Reversible Jacket. 

Drawing inspiration from the vast expanse of galaxies, stars, and extraterrestrial landscapes, this jacket showcases a cosmic print adorning a sleek black wool zip-up. For those inclined towards a polished, consistent aesthetic, a simple reversal of the jacket unveils a 100% nylon exterior equipped with practical pockets. It’s a fantastic jacket, and one of the best Stüssy has released this year. 

Travis Scott Utopia A2 Hooded Sweatshirt

For the Cactus Jack fans out there, check out the Travis Scott Utopia A2 Hooded Sweatshirt—a solid combo of subtle features on an all-brown hoodie. This hoodie is made from a sturdy mix of cotton and polyester. On the front, you’ve got a bold ‘Utopia’ print in a graffiti-style font, and on the back, there’s a stack of four skull graphics. The design is rounded out with a pull-on hood, ribbed waistband, and cuffs, plus a kangaroo pouch pocket.

It’s got a slightly cropped and boxy fit, a trendy cut that works well as an extra layer on colder days or as your go-to everyday hoodie when it’s warmer.

Timberland 6″ Premium Waterproof Boot

There is only one boot that reigns supreme in streetwear, and no other brand has had the cultural impact in street culture like Timberland. The iconic Timberland 6” Premium Waterproof Boot is the only boot you’ll need this winter and perhaps every year for the foreseeable future. 

This boot has truly endured the test of time, reappearing in our consciousness every fall/winter season. The boot features an all-suede “wheat” colored upper in a classic combat boot silhouette. A thick gum rubber sole completes the design, making it a great rugged everyday boot for the colder months. There isn’t much else to say. It’s a classic for a reason — a timeless staple in streetwear that will never disappear.

Denim Tears The Cotton Wreath Sweatshirt

Tremaine Emory’s Denim Tears has emerged as one of the biggest rising stars in streetwear, sharing elbow room with some of the biggest clothing brands in the world. One of the brand’s more iconic pieces, the Cotton Wreath Sweatshirt features a cotton wreath motif printed throughout the entire hoodie. The geometric shapes are printed in an almost random orientation throughout the hoodie, adding a layer of visual intrigue and uniqueness to the garment.

Available in a plethora of colorways, this hoodie is both a great statement or everyday layering piece in the winter. The hoodie also features fleece lining on the inside, great for the season.

Supreme Chest Stripe Sweater (FW23)

We couldn’t have a holiday streetwear gift list without mentioning Supreme. The recent Fall/Winter 23 collection was a standout showing from Supreme in recent years, but in all fairness, fall/winter seems to be where Supreme shines the most. 

Consider the beautifully crafted Chest Stripe Sweater from this season’s collection. This cozy knit sweater boasts an eye-catching overall blend of pinkish-purple hues, placing the prominent “Supreme” logo right at the forefront. If you’re on the lookout for a perfect gift for someone deeply passionate about the brand and who prefers their logos to take center stage, this sweater is an excellent choice.

Supreme Logo Waist Bag

If you’re looking for a great streetwear accessory instead of clothes, consider the Supreme Logo Waist Bag in blue. The “fanny pack” design is constructed with durable nylon throughout, making it a great everyday bag. The bag features two different storage compartments, an adjustable buckle strap, and is available for under $100, making this a great gift this holiday season. 

OFF-WHITE x Nike 001 Soccer Jersey

Our first collaborating of this list, the Off-White x Nike 001 Soccery Jersey is perhaps the biggest statement piece on this list. Part of the Nike x Off-White Fall/Winter 2022 collection, the OFF-WHITE x Nike 001 Soccer Jersey Blue is reminiscent of a retro goalkeeper jersey. This long-sleeved, round-neck soccer jersey features a striking blue hue with a distinctive woodgrain print, creating a visually appealing and mesmerizing design. Crafted from high-quality polyester, it offers a lightweight feel, complemented by a black ribbed collar and cuffs.

To finish out the design, the midriff showcases Off White’s signature “Swimming Man” logo, incorporating a face and hands graphic along with the iconic “Off” and “White™” lettering. Additional details include a matching-hued Swoosh embroidered on the chest, unique orange branding, and a “YYYY 2K” inscription in white at the back. It’s a piece that demands respect — if not for its somewhat psychedelic design, then for the sheer amount of detail that went into creating this piece.

Gallery Dept. Fucked Up Trucker Hat

Gallery Dept.’s meteoric design in streetwear can be credited to the growing influence of reworked garments, vintage, workwear, and the DIY individualistic aesthetic that has dominated the 2020s. While the brand’s clothing perfectly embodies these ideas, Gallery Dept. has also released a slew of hats that equally, if not more popular than the clothing. 

The Gallery Dept Fucked Up Trucker Hat in Black showcases the gallery dept logo in yellow, positioned inversely. It is finalized with tonal fasteners and incorporates mesh back paneling as a finishing touch. It’s one of the those hats that is instantly recoginzable from across the room — a bold statement accessory for the streetwear obsessed that will make a great gift this holiday season.
