Over the past month or so, I’ve written dozens of shopping stories for this very site, done a likely unhealthy amount of cyber-window-shopping, a bit of real-life holiday shopping in-store, and, as always at this time of year, compiled my fair share of gift guides. As you can imagine, this has left me with quite the wish list of my own, and wow, is it a good one. Think everything from the latest designer It shoes to elevated versions of classic winter essentials to jewelry finds I probably don’t need but definitely would like to own anyway­—and everything else in between.

So, what’s a girl to do? Well, while I can’t possibly buy everything on the below list without winning the lottery or holding up a bank, I thought I’d compile my favorite finds anyway, with hopes of at least narrowing it down for myself and maybe helping one of you find a gift for yourself or a loved one while you’re at it. Naturally, I couldn’t keep it below a cool 36 items, but trust me—you’re going to like what you see. Shop the best gifts for yourself below!
