Your Little Snow Monster– Boston’s record-breaking 110.6 inches of snow last year doesn’t scare them. These snow bound little ones are a flurry of activity, even when it’s cold outside. They’ll head straight out the door and into a snowdrift. With Uniqlo’s cozy outerwear, you’ll keep them warm during yet another day off from school. For your little guy, the Warm Padded Coat features a faux fur trim on the hood for protection from the cold, not to mention a durable water repellent coating for optimum protection. For your little princess, the Warm Padded Coat has a trendy (and removable) faux fur hood, a long body for the most protection against winter winds, and puffy padding to keep out the cold. Add in a pair of Heattech Fleece Gloves (known for their bio-warming and insulating material), and these little guys and gals are ready to go.
Daughter, the Urban Hiker – Your daughter is a square. Depending on the day, it could be Harvard, Davis, or Inman. Wherever she wanders, this urban hiker stops at shops, strolls streets, and investigates every corner of the city she loves. With a pumpkin spice latte in one hand and her iPhone in the other, she’s all about walks through the concrete jungle. Don’t let winter winds hold her back. Wrap her up in one of Uniqlo’s popular Heattech Knit Scarfs. Coming in 6 colors, and equipped with the incredibly warm Heattech technology, this scarf will be one of her favorite accessories all season long. Pair it with a cute and cozy Big Pom Pom Beanie and a Faux Shearling Quilted Parka for an unbeatably warm but chic look.
Supermom – When 3pm hits, this supermom goes into overdrive, taking the crew from soccer practice to hockey drills and back home for a family sit-down dinner. She loves looking great, so she needs clothes that work just as hard as she does. Uniqlo’s Denim Leggings Pants look like jeans but they bend and move with a supreme stretch, so they fit her every movement. Tucked into her favorite riding boots or paired with the trendiest of lace-up flats, she’ll love their versatile style. While she’s trekking from place to place, you can also keep her comfy with an Ultra Light Down Jacket. Even though this incredibly lightweight jacket boasts a feminine silhouette, it’s tough on the cold. It stays dry with a water-repellent outer, trendy with attractive quilt stitching and high collar, and durable with tough reinforced edges. It even folds up into a compact pouch, so the only thing taking up room is her endless supply of energy.
Brother, the King of the Outdoors – Whether it’s a Blue Mountain hike or a run down a Killington slope, this guy is adventurous. With plenty of white powder in the New England forecast, he’ll be hitting those ski resorts hard this winter. Make sure he’s toasty with a pair of HEATTECH Thermal Tights. This revolutionary high-performance innerwear eliminates moisture, so he’ll stay dry and warm even during long snowshoe treks. Pair them with some Warm-lined Stretch Cargos, no-nonsense pants that boast a soft fleece on the inside, functional side pockets, and a quick-release belt that’s easy to use even in gloves. Since he’s always walking the extra mile, go the extra mile for him with a Windproof Sherpa Fleece Jacket, a soft long-pile fleece with a windproof layer. This coat’s stylish breast pocket is handy for small items, from iPhones to compasses and every trail map in between.
The Back Bay Hostess with the Mostest – No one throws a holiday party like she does. From the perfect seasonal décor to her secret recipe for mulled wine, you’re always in awe of her fetes. Nothing but the best will do for this friend, so think cashmere all the way. Uniqlo’s dressy Cashmere sweaters keep her stylish and cozy with a variety of colors. Choose a crew neck, V-neck, turtleneck, or cardigan to suit her every need. Or check out the new collection in collaboration with the leading global fashion icon Carine Roitfeld – luxurious sweaters made from fine cashmere with eyelets arranged around the neck for a unique accent. Any of these gifts will surely land you on next season’s guest list.
Dad, the #1 Patriots fan – When Sunday rolls around, you can usually find dad taking his place on the couch and in the books as one of the Patriots’ biggest fans. A football fiend, he takes his lounging seriously. Give him the gift of leisure with a pair of Uniqlo’s Nelpan pants. In this year’s hottest pattern of plaid, these comfortable lounge pants are made from a prewashed brushed flannel material with a roomy cut, translating to a winning combination. Don’t forget a pair Sweat Room Shoes, to keep his feet warm when we’re kicking the other team’s butt. And since Boston’s Boys of Summer are his second favorite past time, a pair of Men’s Ribbed Ankle red socks would also fit nicely into his holiday stocking.This is a paid partnership between UNIQLO and Boston Magazine's City/Studio
