I will ask for these Loewe sneakers. I have them in another way of color and alive in them. After Covid, I still live in sneakers and these are a perfect pair for shooting and the office.
My friend Alison Chemla (Alison Lou’s designer) gave me this bracelet when I had my daughter and I haven’t taken it off since. Now I’m gifting it to all my new mom friends with a matching bracelet. It’s the perfect holiday gift! (See other publisher-approved gifts for new moms, here.)
I love this nylon bag from The Row. It’s perfect for long flights and will be at the top of my list!
Proenza Schouler cashmere blankets were my favorite gift to give to loved ones.
Nora Milch, Fashion Director
My friend Áwet Woldegebriel’s iconic “livewear” line is made in New York City and employs clothing workers who have been hardest hit by the pandemic. I love my jogging and I want my friends and family to have fun too. Maybe even very well-behaved people can get the matching hoodie.
Laura Jackson, Fashion Market Editor
I love this super chic bucket bag. The shoulder strap makes it a perfect daily addition to your busy city life.
This tracksuit from Eres is perfect for the fitness lover in your life. Pair it with a pack of their favorite studio lessons for an ideal gift.
Give anyone in your life the gift of intimacy with these ultra-luxury cashmere gloves.
For the fashion obsession, you can’t go wrong with a sleek belt in a sophisticated shade of green
Jenna Wojciechowski, Senior Fashion Market Editor
I love this perfectly updated version of a classic striped shirt. Timeless and contemporary at the same time.
Andrea Whittle, Director of Features
I am obsessed with the latest collection from Yali, which includes these super charming and very original silk suits with contrasting velvet buttons. This peachy pink is at the top of my list and I plan on making it my party look for years to come.
Oona Wally, Senior Visual Editor
I love finding gifts for everyone on my list from Goodee World – all the items on their site are made from natural materials by skilled craftsmen, like this cozy blanket with colors inspired by Matisse’s paintings.
This glam and unconventional ring is at the top of my wish list.
Tori Lopez, Lead Fashion Assistant
I was reluctant to jump on the phone strap bandwagon, but now I can’t imagine my life without it. It helped me drop the phone less and at the same time serve as a stylish accessory for any outfit.
I truly believe you can never go wrong with a gift from Vivienne Westwood. I’ve been keeping an eye on this 90s-inspired sweater vest ever since it came out, crossing my fingers Santa sees it.
My parents gave me this ring a few years ago to remind me that they love me no matter the distance, and it’s one of the best gifts I’ve ever received, it would make anyone on your list happy.
Brooke Marine, cultural editor
If you’ve seen me carrying around my old battered wallet that I’ve had for the past 10 years, no, you haven’t. This black leather “Lady Wallet” from The Row would make a stylish replacement.
I’d like to imagine myself as the kind of person who gracefully takes off this pair of Loewe lambskin gloves when entering a candlelit club. These gloves feel so stretchy that it almost feels like you can feel them just by looking at them. I like the Atlantic blue color, but even the black and tan ones look quite versatile.
Carolyn Twerksy, personal writer
As I start going to the office more, I have felt the desire for a more substantial business bag, a desire I haven’t had since pre-pandemic times. This one from Cuyana meets all my needs: side pockets that look chic rather than “water bottle holder on the side of a middle school backpack”, small inside pockets for easy access, and a shoulder strap that fits comfortably and won’t slip .
Faith Brown, social media editor
The perfect gift for the friend who is always on vacation. While they rarely are, this set is still at the top of my wish list. Come summer, I see myself in this butter yellow two-piece on the beach, with a fruity drink in one hand and a good book in the other.
This is the perfect gift for when you don’t know what to give someone. Brother Vellies’ monthly subscription will bring, well, something special (and surprising) to your favorite person’s door every month. The best part is that every amazing smelling ceramic vase, cup or candle is always handcrafted and supports artisans around the world.
I’m not saying I am, but if I … they were stuck in the early years, I would never take off this sweater.
Hannah Westbrook, associate visual editor
I would like to give a Byredo candle kit to someone special. Each of their scents smells amazing and the candles last forever!
Christina Holevas, Senior Editor of Jewelry and Accessories
These elegant Van Cleef & Arpels zodiac charms are perfect for astrology lovers.
A diamond earring is always a perfect gift.
Amir La Sure, assistant accessories guide
Anyone who was an admirer of the late Virgil Abloh’s work would forever appreciate this set.
Rachel Pincus, visual editor
I’m addicted to snowboarding and I’m always looking for a new coat for the season – this is perfect.
I come from a large family of skiers – anything comfortable on or off the slopes does the trick!
This sweater would also be perfect for an après look.
Katie Connor, Digital Executive Director
Anything from Prada is always welcome, but the Galleria bag is an instant classic that will span generations. Just ask Hunter Schafer.
A precious card holder for the most precious cargo, that is your vaccination card.
Allia Alliata Di Montereale, Senior Style Editor
This bag will brighten up any outfit: use it as a clutch bag or carry it over the shoulder.
Leorosa perfectly interprets the classic wool vest. I love the bold colors and the fact that it’s reversible. Buttons can also be flipped!
I travel a lot for work and never check in a suitcase again, so good quality hand luggage has become essential. You can’t go wrong with this choice.
Julia McClatchy, assistant editor-in-chief
When it comes to holiday gifts, I strongly believe that anything soft is the perfect gift. This cashmere and silk blend scarf from Loro Piana is sure to keep your loved ones warm and chic this season.
I love this Jennifer Fisher bracelet – I’ve been eyeing it all season.
