In this article, we intend to find a specific model which can satisfy the further refining dS swampland conjecture and scalar weak gravity conjecture (SWGC) simultaneously, in particular, Higgs inflation model and its two extensions: Higgs-dilaton model and Palatini Higgs inflation. We determine the conditions if the three inflation models satisfy scalar weak gravity conjecture (SWGC) and strong scalar weak gravity conjecture (SSWGC).
