The holidays are just around the corner, which means that it's time to start holiday shopping. Maybe you have a gift exchange coming up and you're not sure who you'll have to shop for, however. Here are 35 gender-neutral gifts that anyone will love.

“We’re here to liberate menswear one bowtie at a time and we’re doing it ourselves because we want it done right,” reads the Wildfang website.

This cardigan will keep anyone cozy.
One DNA is a unisex brand offering everything from cashmere cowl neck sweaters to versatile tunics. These New York-made pieces are designed to be worn all year by “all genders, ages and races.” This canvas worker jacket is a solid pick.
The UK-based label Gender Free World's mission is to fit bodies in a way that high-street clothing does not. For example, the shirts, which the company prides itself on, are designed with a “gender neutral sensibility to fit body shape,” which means that they’ve got “a looser cut with left-over-right buttoning and a hidden bust button to avoid gaping in the chest area.” Here's a flannel for everyone.
