The 25 Best Gifts for the Holidays, According to a Fashion and a Beauty Editor

Most Wanted is a weekly series in which one Who What Wear team member or friend of the brand will share the top 25 finds on their current wish list.

I'll admit that I miss being in the office with my co-workers. (There, I said it.) Not only was it a joy to work with truly interesting and inspiring women five days a week, but I also didn't mind getting to chat all things fashion and beauty all day long either. Some of my favorite clothing and beauty products to date were purchased solely based on recommendations from my fellow editors. I've especially relied on associate fashion editor Anneliese Dominguez and associate beauty editor Courtney Higgs to fill me in on the latest and greatest items on their radars. With the holidays just around the corner, I asked them for their respective expertise on the best fashion and beauty gifts they're considering wrapping up for their loved ones this year. They both shared so many amazing ideas from Macy's with me, from skincare sets to cozy coats, perfect for friends, family, and more. And you're just in luck because you're reading this in time to shop their picks, too.
