It's that time of year — when you know your family and significant others are still scrambling to pick out a little something special for you this holiday season. It's been a crazy year, so you can't exactly blame them for leaving things until the last minute, but you want to make sure they're armed with an idea of what you'll actually want so they don't end up impulse buying (and rush shipping) a fruit basket or another pair of wool socks. Here to help make your subtle suggesting a breeze are gift ideas for all you fashion lovers, hand selected by The Zoe Report's editors.
Since the team spends an inordinate amount of time combing the interweb for the coolest brands and must-try trends, each member is uniquely positioned to provide a little shopping inspiration based on the items that are currently sitting squarely on their own holiday wish lists. From the practical — think workwear and cozy staples — to the fantastical (hello, Chanel), you'll help the gift-givers in your life nail their last-minute shopping by forwarding on this list. And while it's true that in the end, it's the thought that goes in to gift giving that really matters, there's no reason you can't still nicely, and subtly, suggest what you really want.

"Aevha is rapidly becoming a new fave of mine. I first fell in love with the brand's Helve clutch (which I essentially wear every day) and now I'm eyeing this mulberry tote that's beyond perfect for winter. I love that the brand takes interesting twists on classic styles via marble-resin and metal accents and hardware. Throw in the reasonable price point and I'm officially sold." — Angela Melero

"I think I’m way past due for a watch upgrade… I’ve held on to my trusty Kate Spade bracelet watch for years (it was my first “investment” splurge post-college). Now, my eyes are on this stunner from Movado — it’s sleek, shiny, and small enough to stack with my favorite bracelets. " — Khalea Underwood
"I always struggle with footwear in the winter — my trusty Sorel snow boots keep me warm, but boots-with-the-fur don’t necessarily work for certain after-work events. And I’ve fallen down the MTA steps one too many times to try wearing heeled booties in the snow. I can’t wait until my lavender Marc Jacobs combat boots come in — they’re chic and practical." — Khalea Underwood
I alreadyhave enough puffer coats and faux fur jackets to last me for a few winters. What I do not have in my closet is a nice wool jacket. I crave a streamlined silhouette for days when I feel like dressing down and Universal Standard’s Capella Satin Tiered Coat is exactly what I need. It’s made of warm wool, and has pretty satin detailing that keeps it from veering too simple." — Khalea Underwood
