Every December, without fail, we find ourselves entirely consumed with tracking down the perfect gifts for all the stylish ladies and handsome fellows out there, to the point of forgetting about our own holiday wish lists! Happily, that's all changing this year, as we've decided to take a moment to reflect on a few of the items we're currently excited about in this month's WWW: Hearts. Now, while our photo editor may have her heart set on an amazing leather jacket and our graphic designer is craving a cute bra and underwear set, there are a few things that have managed to make it onto all of our must-have lists this holiday. Ranging from a House of Harlow 1960 snake-print clutch to a splurge-worthy Ari Dein pajama set to Tom Ford's new nail polish, we're obsessed with everything in today's story and think you'll enjoy today's featured items too. Here's to hoping we're on Santa's "Nice" list this year!
Tom Ford Nail Polish ($30 each)
Much to our delight, Tom Ford expanded his beauty collection this fall to include a fabulous range of skin care products, cosmetics, and tools! Of course, we're planning on picking up everything-including the Illuminating Protective Primer with SPF 12 ($70)-but the whole office is particularly jazzed about the large collection of nail lacquers, which includes everything from vibrant reds (Scarlett Chinois) to rich fall colors (African Violet) to lovely neutrals (Naked). Delivering high coverage and a gorgeous glossy finish, we promise you'll want to collect each of the 16 chic shades. Are they the perfect stocking stuffer? Indeed!
ONE by Ari Dein Boutique Hotel Pajama Set ($660) in Langoustina Rustica
In addition to the luxurious silk fabric and vibrant orange hue, one of the reasons we're so in love with ONE by Ari Dein's Boutique Hotel Pajamas is that they are incredibly versatile too! While they're a decidedly chic and stylish option for the bedroom, we also can't wait to wear each piece separately as daywear, making them an investment-worthy purchase indeed. If you'd like to try a more affordable, yet equally fashionable PJ set, definitely don't miss The Afterhours Satin Pajamas ($60) by Victoria's Secret, which come in a slew of bold colors and prints, or J. Crew's adorable star-print Silk Celestial Pajamas ($108).
Fashion Face Off Card Game ($10) by Maia Adams and Erin Petson
While we can't say we're master poker players or particularly talented when it comes to gin rummy, we have a hunch this Fashion Face Off card game will suit our strengths perfectly! Each card features beautiful illustrations of some of the most iconic dresses, shoes, and bags-from the beloved Balmain bandleader jacket to the conical bustier designed by Jean Paul Gaultier for Madonna's Blond Ambition Tour-allowing fashion fanatics of all ages to partake in an exciting battle to see who is the most on trend.
Bumble and bumble. The Straight Line
If you've ever had to deal with unruly frizz and wildly curly locks, we're positive you're going to love our next obsession-worthy pick: The Straight Line by Bumble and bumble! Created to help you achieve a number of super smooth styles, The Straight Line consists of three easy-to-use products, including the sulfate-free Straight Shampoo ($29) and Straight Conditioner ($32), which work together to calm curls and created a sleek, silky, and overall more manageable texture, and the heat-activated Straight Blow Dry Balm ($28), which guarantees soft, sleek, and healthy-looking hair all day long. It's official, we're hooked!

House of Harlow 1960 Marley Clutch ($195) in Natural Snake, Red Snake, Gold Metallic Snake
From retro sunnies to visually intriguing baubles, we've been devoted fans of House of Harlow 1960's incredibly stylish accessories since its debut back in 2009. That said, it should come as no surprise we're completely smitten with the brand's new-for-winter Marley Clutch. With a compact shape, luxe gold tone accents, and three different colors to choose from, the Marley Clutch is the perfect piece to complement your upcoming holiday and New Year's Eve ensembles this year. Available at Nordstrom early this month, we recommend snagging one before they sell out!-Jessica Baker
