‘Tis the season for sweaters! This means it is the perfect gift idea for the holiday season! Love that!

Sweaters are perfect this time of year, and they also make amazing gifts. I love sweaters which transcend trends and can be worn for years and years. Stripes are classic; as well as interesting knits in solid hues and subtle patterns. All of the sweaters shown above are either already in my closet, or on my wish list!

If you are looking for the perfect gift for yourself, or others, why not choose a fabulous sweater?! Love! I am hoping to find one of these sweaters under the tree for me on Christmas day. Hint hint Santa!
