The Luxury List is a monthly column on all things luxury, exploring cult items from heritage brands, tapping the foremost experts in the fashion space, and doing deep dives into the investment pieces that are worth it.

While I can talk about cool fashion gifts at length, there is perhaps no topic I'm more excited to dive into than the best luxury holiday gifts of the season. Designers deliver the coolest pieces of the year at this time, so in my opinion, it's one of the best times to add great finds to your cart—whether you're gifting them to someone else or treating yourself to something special. I cover luxury fashion on Who What Wear, so I have a constant eye on the standout new items, but here, I've boiled it down to the very best pieces to gift from the designer space.

From beautiful investment (and very memorable) watches that will stand the test of time to stunning designer bags to interpretations of the softest possible cashmere from fashion to home, there are some pieces on my short list that I need to share. Ahead are the best luxury holiday gifts of the season, according to this editor.

Designers gifts don't get more fun than this.

One of my favorite collaborations of the year.

I already own these in black but can't stop thinking about this tortoiseshell pair.

I'm always switching bags, so cardholders are one of the must-buy pieces that recently landed on my gifting list.

Don't sleep on this $8 Saint Laurent find.

This is one of my favorite beauty things to gift.

Who wouldn't love a beautiful set of glasses?

The travel bag I haven't been able to stop thinking about for over a decade.

A fashion brand doing home things exactly the right way.

I almost don't want to share these because I'm afraid they'll sell out.

Is this the best packaging of the holiday season?

When it comes to gifts, this is a truly perfect choice.

For anyone who is tuned into up-and-coming brands.
