There’s so much to love about the most wonderful time of the year, and giving gifts to the special people in your life is at the top of the list for many of us. After all, few things feel better than seeing someone’s reaction when you surprise them with something they truly love.
But sometimes it can be a bit of a challenge (to put it lightly) to find the perfect presents for your friends and family. It can occasionally even become a source of stress.

Not to worry, though. We’re here to help with a few ideas. We think some of the best presents you can hand out are the practical ones your friends and family are going to enjoy and use not only around the holidays, but throughout the year — namely, gifts that bring comfort. So we’ve picked out some items from The Company Store that can keep the people on your nice list nice and cozy all year ‘round.
(We should warn you that you might want to pick up some of these gifts for yourself, while you’re shopping for others.)
Matching Family Pajamas
If you’re shopping for an entire family, these Family Pajamas allow everyone to match in a generally adorable fashion — while also ensuring each member of the group stays nice and comfortable during and after the holiday festivities. They come in a slew of different styles and patterns — from Santa to snowmen to playful, festive llamas — and they also have pairs available for the furry members of the family. For every pair sold through Dec. 18, The Company Store will donate $1 to Ronald McDonald House New York, an organization that provides a caring and supportive environment for pediatric cancer patients and their families.
Legends Luxury Geneva Hungarian White Goose Down and Oversized Comforter
You can’t spell “comforter” without “comfort” (sorry, we had to). And few comforters are as lofty and opulent as The Company Store’s Legends Luxury Geneva Hungarian White Goose Down and Oversized Comforters. They combine the insulating warmth of 600-650 fill power premium certified Hungarian white goose down with the silky touch of 400-thread count combed cotton sateen, which is luxurious to say the least. They’re available in a range of sizes, as well as four custom densities (super-light, light, medium, and extra warmth) to satisfy your friends’ or loved ones’ preferred sleep styles. And they come with a lifelong guarantee, so whoever is on the receiving end of this gift will be feeling comfortable at night for years to come. This comforter is a tough one to beat when it comes to cozying up in bed after a long day.
Best Down Pillows
Pillows: They’re something that everyone needs, but that few people ever really think to invest in for themselves — making them a great, useful and likely surprising gift. You may want to consider the Best RDS Certified European Down Pillows, which come in four different densities to provide customized support for your head, neck, shoulders and back, so your gift recipient will get the best night’s rest for the type of sleeper they happen to be. The densities include soft for stomach sleepers, medium for back sleepers, firm for side sleepers and extra-firm for side sleepers who need a little bit of additional support.
Cardinal Printed Flannel Bedding
If you haven’t tried flannel bedding before, be assured that it can take your in-bed rest and relaxation to a new level of comfort, especially when you want to stay warm on a cold winter night. The Company Store’s Winter Cardinal 5 oz. Cotton Flannel Collection — which include a flat sheet, fitted sheet, pillowcases, duvet cover and sham — features pairs of cardinals roosting on wintery branches. The bedding is produced from the coziest cotton flannel that has been brushed on both sides for ultimate softness.
Luxury Egyptian Cotton Sateen Sheets
For those who have given flannel sheets a shot and found out it wasn’t particularly for them, there’s the Legends Luxury 600-Thread Count Egyptian Cotton Sateen Collection, which can help make for just as great a night’s sleep. After all, a 600-thread count is definitely nothing to take lightly, and the sateen weave makes for subtle luster and even more softness, while the long-staple fibers help ensure lasting smoothness no matter how many times you wash them.
Gravity Weighted Blanket
What kind of gift can be more comforting than a gift that actually eases anxiety and stress, like a weighted blanket? By relaxing the body’s nervous system, they’ve been known to ease insomnia and stress which helps provide a sense of calm and well-being. And the Gravity Weighted Blanket is a great choice when it comes to these amazing blankets. Filled with weighted microbeads, the plush microfleece duvet is designed to help you fall asleep faster and enjoy a deeper, more satisfying night’s sleep. It comes in three different weights, so you can choose the best fit for whoever is going to be receiving it. (The blanket is ideally supposed to be somewhere around 7-12 percent of the user’s body weight.)
Company Cotton Turkish Cotton Robe
If you’re living your best, most comfortable life, a decent robe is, quite frankly, a must — and they can keep you nice and comfortable around the holidays or any day of the year. The unisex Company Cotton Turkish Cotton Robe, a cozy classic from The Company Store, is made to wear at home, but is designed with luxurious spa style in mind. The unisex robes are loomed of plush, absorbent Turkish cotton and come with a cozy shawl collar, self-belt, patch pockets, and turn-back cuffs. They can even be personalized with a monogram, if you want to add an ultra-unique touch to your gift.
Few things are more comforting than a fresh, soft towel when you’re getting out of a nice and warm shower or bath, which makes them a great and very useful gift. And The Company Store offers a very broad selection of them, with cotton, bamboo and eco-friendly options, among others. Many of them are monogrammable as well, so you can personalize them for the people you care about most.
Pima Cotton Neckband Pajama Set
If you’re looking to gift someone something soft that’s perfect for relaxed lounging at home, the Pima Cotton Neckband Pajama Set is a nice option. It’s made in peru from the pima interlock, a super-soft fabric with an exquisite drape. The set includes a long-sleeve pajama top and full-length pants, and it comes in five different colors.
The Company Quilt is the kind of gift that will keep the people you care about comfortable 365 days a year. A soft and lightweight bedding layer, it’s great to add weight on summer evenings, and great for adding warmth when paired with other blankets and comforters on those cold winter nights. It’s also worth mentioning that these quilts are pretty stellar for fort-building.
LoftAIRE Down Alternative Holiday Throws
LoftAIRE Down Alternative Holiday Throws will bring some stylish holiday cheer to the beds of your friends, family and loved ones. They come in several patterns including berry, trees and penguins. The 230-thread count 100 percent cotton shell is filled for ultimate comfort with LoftAIRE, an exclusive high-quality synthetic microfiber that mimics the loftiness and insulating properties of down. It’s The Company Store’s best-selling throw blanket, updated for the holiday season!
Character Hooded Towels
For the kids on your list, Character Hooded Towels are a great gift to help them get their imagination going after a bath or a swim. These soft, cozy cotton towels adorned with 3D details come in all kinds of character designs, including mermaid, knight, octopus and astronaut, to name just a few. And each different design is monogrammable, to make your little one’s towel extra special.
