Now that the holidays are in full swing, I'm in full gifting mode. I've been devouring all the best ideas for what to gift everyone on my list, from the Gen Z–approved buys to the best under-$100 picks to a few incredible luxury pieces, and shopping accordingly of course. But I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't also thinking about what I'm personally hoping Santa delivers to my doorstep this year. Ahem, if you're listening, this is my not-so-subtle hint that my wish list lies ahead.

These gift ideas involve everything from a few cheap thrills filling my cart at the moment to the luxury items that I'm jotting down because I'm a firm believer in manifestation. Usually, I compile a wish list like this just for the fun of it, but this year, I figured I'd publish it for a number of reasons. On the one hand, it's easy to share with friends and family as gifting inspiration (hint hint), and on the other hand, it's a cute way to look at all my current favorites and perhaps select something to treat myself to.

Whether you're looking to gift a friend, to glean some inspiration for what to put on your own wish list, or are simply curious to see the items I'm lusting after right now, continue on to see the 30 items that are making up my personal editor-approved gift guide.

Up next, I'm planning my 2022 wardrobe and already want to wear these six pieces.
