We know it's hard to find the right gifts for your loved ones, so we've compiled a ton of fashion and beauty-focused gift guides tailored to a range of interests and budgets. Check out our latest below and find more right here.

For anyone whose interests lie at the intersection of fashion and sports, 2017 was likely a very exciting year. Major models landed massive campaigns with athletic brands (Bella Hadid for Nike, Gigi Hadid for Reebok, Kendall Jenner for Adidas); retro sportswear labels resurfaced on the runways and inside luxury retailers, thanks to buzzy designer collaborations (Gosha Rubchinskiy and both Kappa and Fila, Off-White and Umbro, Vetements and Champion); and Rihanna's much-hyped Fenty Puma collection continued to set trends on the international circuit. In addition, with the continuous rise of the streetwear and athleisure markets, iconic sportswear companies like Nike and Adidas — the latter of which owes its surge in popularity in part to Kanye West's Yeezy line and a partnership with Alexander Wang — are more in-demand than ever. If you don't believe us, you clearly didn't attempt to get your hands on a pair of Virgil Abloh's Nikes this fall.

Even if you're not a sports fan, gym rat or trained athlete, it's perfectly acceptable (and cool!) to dress the part. Take cues from the tracksuits at Gucci, the sneakers at Louis Vuitton, the motocross pants at Fenty or even the LeBron James runway cameo at Kith and invest in a piece or two from the trend this holiday, since it will certainly carry on well into 2018 and beyond. If you have a loved one whose aesthetic is best described as "Calabasas soccer mom," look no further than these 17 holiday picks — no actual athletic abilities required.
