Unwrapped: 15 Gifts For The '90s Obsessive

Let's turn back time

Tis officially the season for gift-giving. For us, that's a full month in which we'll be providing gift ideas for everyone on your list with our Unwrapped holiday gift guides. So make your holiday shopping a breeze this season, and let us help you find gifts for all the people in your life.

It's unclear when exactly we're all going to tire of the '90s craze, but it doesn't look like it's going to be any time soon (hence the remakes and trends). So, since we'd all prefer to turn back time anyway—when things seemed lighter and more wholesome than today—we figured we'd round up some nostalgia for you to give to your loved ones this year.

The following gift options aren't for the passive lover of the decade though. These are for the friend who wore overalls before they came back in style and who bought every piece of the Lazy Oaf x Daria collection before it sold out. The one who can't wait for the Clueless remake and who actually watched Girl Meets World. They'll appreciate the trip down memory lane, and if they don't then, well, they're totally buggin'.

Michael Michael Kors, Tavie Suede Combat Boot, $199, available at Michael Kors.

These combat boots are on trend for both 2018 and 1998 and are the perfect addition to a slip dress or pair of army pants.

Lazy Oaf's Daria collection is one of our favorite collaborations of the year. Get this sick, sad jacket for the witty, monotone-speaking friends in your life.
