What do you get the person that has everything? That's a question that people who know me well and are planning a gift for me might be asking themselves. The truth is any gift that someone gives me brings instant joy, but that sometimes doesn't make shopping for me any easier. Being a professional online shopper means that I have a way of finding everything that could be on my wish list and capturing it for myself before it could ever potentially sell out. I've spent the past year navigating the market and discovering the best of the best things. With that being said, I might just be exactly the kind of person you'd want to go to for gift ideas.

Right now, my shopping strategy is all about longevity. I am looking for things that I'll wear forever or that will have a major impact on my life. Below, find the 29 gifts that are at the top of my mind as I plan my holiday wish list.


Associate Editor

Sierra Mayhew was always destined to work in fashion, but she didn't know it at first. Growing up with no choice but to wear a rotation of school uniforms and activewear, her love for fashion really blossomed when she moved away for college and was able to finally define her very own personal style. Shortly thereafter, she interned at Elle magazine and instantly knew that editorial was for her. After graduating from the University of Notre Dame, she worked for ShopBazaar, contributing regularly to Bazaar.com, and finally made her way to Who What Wear, where she is an associate editor. When she’s not working, you can catch her always trying to catch a flight, rollerblading through New York City traffic, or exploring the latest luxury vintage boutique.
