2015 was a huge year for Gucci. Alessandro Michele took over as creative director, and in his short time at the helm of the brand, he's infused Gucci with his deep understanding of the house's history as well as his own unique sensibility. Fashion editors went crazy over the bags, accessories, shoes and clothing. Gucci is attracting new fans left and right as fashion insiders' newly minted cult favorite, and I'm among the many people singing Michele's praises.
We've already given you a close look at several of Alessandro's first collections, all of which are full of pieces any fashion lover would love to receive this holiday season. Not only did I pick seven of my favorite bags from the brand, but I also selected some small accessories like wallets, scarves and shoes to cover gifts at a variety of price points. From classic GG print to the stunning Gucci Blooms and my new favorite Bee Web, there's something for everyone on your list (including yourself) below.

Gucci GG Blooms
My first peek at the Gucci Blooms print was when I previewed the Dionysus collection. It was my favorite of the lot, and Gucci has since expanded the print to a wider variety of accessories. This Boston bag is feminine and whimsical and melds beautifully with the antique rose leather detail.
If the print on the bag is too much for you, a continental wallet may be just what you're looking for; if you love the print and antique rose gold accents, the high-top sneakers can finish off the look.

Gucci Bee Web
This is the bag that's on my Christmas wishlist, and I have not-so-subtly hinted to Vlad that I'd like to see it under the tree. This bag feels like a page out of Gucci's history, with the combination of the golden embroidered bee, the iconic Gucci green and red stripe and the original GG canvas. I'd recommend anything from this line; the pieces are casual classics that would work as gifts for a variety of recipients.
Gucci Bee Web Shoulder Bag
I didn't expect to like this collection, but the entire Arabesque line just works. If the bag's prominent print feels like too bold of a gift, the wallet makes for a nice addition that's sure to have people talking when they're behind its recipient in the checkout line.
On a scarf, the print is absolutely divine. If you have someone on your gift list who loves to bundle up, it's the way to go.

Gucci Blooms Print
I first shared the Gucci Blooms print when we gave you a look at Gucci's 2016 Cruise Collection, and many of you were as excited as I was to see the new staple, the Gucci Dionysus, in the same gorgeous floral. It looks just as beautiful on this wallet, sneakers and stole, and it's exactly the type of floral that will feel fresh for years.

Gucci GG Supreme
The Boston Bag is one of Gucci's most iconic bags. This interpretation mixes GG Supreme canvas and contrast leather detail, and there is something playful about the combination of hibiscus and pink in the leather detailing. Gucci red holds a very important place in the brand's history, and in smaller accessories, the shade makes for the kind of gift that will be a constant focal point in their recipients' outfits.
GG Supreme Top Handle Bag
This might be one of my favorite bags of 2015. The tiger metal detail played a huge role in the brand's Cruise 2016 collection, and I'd love to add a piece from this line to my wardrobe. This bag is incredibly versatile, with plenty of interior pockets and compartments. As much as I love the bag, I am equally enthralled by the matching wallet on chain and belt. Animalier pieces are sure to be new wardrobe staples and conversation starters alike.
GG Marmont Leather Shoulder Bag
This Padlock GG Supreme bag pairs classicism with a twist of modernity. I love its compact size, finished with a black leather top flap and brown leather key holder, as well as the Gucci keylock closure. This bag is a timeless classic, and with monogram making a comeback, it's just the right mixture of the GG print and luxe leather.
