What Our Fashion Editor Is Gifting Everyone On Her List


Giving gifts is one of my favorite aspects of the holiday season. As a fashion editor, my family and friends often look to me for style advice or info on the latest and greatest thing. More than dolling out advice, I love the thrill of seeing my loved ones unwrap items that I’ve astutely selected for them—I beam with excitement and wiggle in my seat waiting for their reaction. I’m often spot on, which makes me exceedingly happy. That’s the spirit of giving, right?

I put great thought into gifts despite waiting until the last minute to purchase said presents—a classic hurried shopper. This year, my list has grown as my modern family has expanded and more amazing friends have come into my life. Which means I’ve had to plan a bit more.

Here, see my curated list of gifts perfectly suited for my favorite people. I’m certain you, too, have a luxe-loving family member, beauty-obsessed friend, fitness fanatic or culinary enthusiast in your life who will be more than thrilled by one or more of these gifts. Get inspired.

My boyfriend keeps stealing my Beats when we travel so it’s high time he has his own pair.

For My Sister

I have a half-sister who is only seven and a budding fashionista. She’s super active so a pair of pink glitter sneakers is right up her alley. She’ll tell me they’re totally awesome.

Chronologiste Travel Set


For My Travel-Obsessed Friend

Herbosum Bamboo Incense Sticks


My Home Décor-Inclined Friends

My friends Matt and Jerry host in their apartment all the time. Their taste in décor is super chic and they totally appreciate a designer goodie. I figure these incense sticks are a fun way to woo them this holiday and the Gucci label will not be lost on them.

One of my closet friends, Jared, recently moved away and is settling into his new apartment. I’m sending him a luxurious sheet set to help set him up—the premium thread count will be more than treasured on his end.

Stovetop Pizza Oven & Peel Set

Goop x Pizzacraft

For My Chef Friend

It’s a win, win.

Iga Cuff Bracelet


For My Sister’s Mom

My sister’s mom appreciates a pared-back piece of jewelry and this customizable cuff bracelet is perfect. I will put her initials and my sisters on them for extra special meaning. The best part? It’s handmade from sustainable upcycled brass by artisans in Kenya to help increase their local businesses and increase their income.

For My Cousin

My cousin told me she’s looking for a cooler everyday bag—I can’t think of anything more perfect than this quilted and stud-adorned black leather shoulder bag.

Caos Medium Bucket Bag


For My Other Cousin

I can’t gift one cousin without the other and she made mention that she’s looking to experiment with the plush and fuzzy accessory trend. I think she’ll love this convertible faux-style that can be worn as a shoulder bag, cross-body or clutch.

My aunt has an affinity for silk scarves and this Fleurs de Giverny print is so stunning. The colors will go perfectly with her auburn hair and warm skin tone.

Formula 119 Cream, 50ml

NYDG Skincare

My Boyfriend’s Mom

Also on the skincare front, my boyfriend’s mom and I were chatting winter dryness and I kept talking up my favorite moisturizer by NYDG Skincare. It’s incredibly soothing and rich for parched skin, but it’s super light so you can wear under makeup in the winter months. She needs to experience it.

Saint Laurent

For My Dog

I recently upgraded to a Casper mattress and let me tell you, it’s life-changing. I’ve decided my precious pup, Bingham absolutely needs a Casper of his own. He’s not spoiled at all.
