The Gifts Our Editors' Really Want This Season

Alex Apatoff, Lifestyle Director: Our resident shopping expert Sarah Ball introduced me to this site that’s all about ethical, sustainable jewelry at attainable prices – and she also introduced me to the joy of a perfect “ear party.” Ever since, I’ve had my eye on these teeny, delicate bezel-set studs that I’ll wear every day, mix-and-match with other pieces and feel great about for decades – they’re definitely the definition of a great investment piece.

Kaitlyn Frey, Style & Beauty Assistant: I’ve been eyeing these beaded, velvet mules for a while, so I decided to add them to my holiday wish list. They’re a versatile design and the embellishments help dress up any look you pair them with.

Andrea Lavinthal, Style + Beauty Director: I go on Net-a-Porter daily just to visit these boots (and check if by some miracle, they went on sale). I don’t actually expect someone to buy them for me, but in case my incredibly smart, kind, loving and generous significant other is reading this, know that I’ll wear them every single day (except when it’s raining) and never ask for another pair of shoes again.

Jackie Fields, Beauty Editor: Something in my skincare regimen is working wonders for my complexion, and I can’t help but think it’s this custom serum that I added about six months ago. Yes, you have to get your personalized potion from a dermatologist, but this innovation (it’s formulated in an Instagram-worthy compounding machine right before your eyes) is worth the visit. As I’m about to finish my second bottle, I’m hoping to find the gift of another bottle in my stocking.

Colleen Kratofil, Style Writer-Reporter: I’m what you would call a tiny purse girl, and this too-cute mini tote needs to join my handbag collection. I love that this has the feel of a wear-everywhere tote but is small enough to hold just the absolute essentials. For as often as I plan on wearing this, it will definitely get its money’s worth.

Colleen Kratofil, Style Writer-Reporter: Nothing looks chicer than when a bathroom has matching hand-care products. And this year, I’m turning my washroom into a winter wonderland with Beekman 1802‘s Snow Forest set. This comes with all of the brand’s beloved (and ultra-moisturizing) goat milk hand products (the Whipped Body Cream is my particular fave) and the seasonal scent smells just like freshly fallen snow mixed with soft pine. Basically, heaven

Sarah Ball, Market Editor: I’m usually not a big earring type of gal, but lately I’ve really been loving all of the oversized hoops. I love this pair from Jennifer Fisher because they are thick and large enough to make a statement, but wearable with all of my everday outfits.

Sharon Kanter, Deputy Style Director: I’m obsessed with this new luggage collection by celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin. (You may know her clients, the Kardashians… yes?) As an in-demand glammer, she poured all of her knowledge about traveling efficiently into this four-piece collection, which includes a carry-on, medium case, large case and trunk. They come in four colors, like red (shown), black, gold and rose gold. I so want to roll onto my next flight with all of these… or just one to start.
