You may have just now come to the realization that the holidays are right around the corner (and with it, gifting season), but it's been on our editors' minds for a minute now already. As fashion people, our heads are always months ahead as we consider what's new and next in the style sphere, and this forward-thinking headspace has one great advantage when it comes to holiday gifting: we've already got our wish lists on lock.
My fellow WWW editors and I are constantly surveying the latest offering from top retailers like Net-a-Porter and Nordstrom to smaller indie labels and in the process, we've each kept a personal wish list of items we're either planning on gifting to others or are secretly hoping to receive ourselves. Lo and behold, the fashion editor-approved gift guide we personally stand by. From luxurious a hand wash to Prada's latest It bag, keep scrolling for the best gifts of the season (as far as we're concerned).
"Whether you treat yourself or give to a friend, I feel like luxury hand soap is an excellent gift. Trust me, this combination of sweet orange, cedarwood, and sage is intoxicating."
"I've been wearing this bra for years because it is freakishly comfortable. Unfortunately, thanks to WFH life, now my standard of comfort is no bra, but back in bra-wearing days, this was my gold standard for feeling practically invisible. I've always worn black or tan, but seeing Emily Ratajkowsi step out in the brown one has ignited my need to get that color, too."
"What a scrumptious little clutch! The dumpling shape is quite on-trend, and the under $40 price makes this pick very "add to cart" worthy."
"I'm not sure which aspect of this silk scrunchie I love more: the delicate edge detail or the fact that it's made of leftover fabric scraps in downtown L.A."
"There's something about this bath soak. The frankincense scent is utterly calming. As the name implies, sinking into a bath full of these salts is an emotional experience. I honestly get a little nervous when I'm running low, and simultaneously get territorial about anyone in my household trying to use my beloved Martini soak. I'm a barrel of laughs, can't you tell? Thank goodness I have this soak to calm me down!"
"I've been thinking about these Bottega Veneta heels for months and months."
"I honestly don't know how I don't own a leather blazer but I've been eyeing this oversize vegan version."
"Sami Miro designs the coolest tops like this tank that's made from upcycled materials."
"These slippers are exactly what's been missing from my life."
"You have to see what this ring looks like on the model's finger to recognize its true beauty."
"More giftable masks than this simply do not exist."
My dream coat? You're looking at her.
I just know these bee buttons will be a fun conversation-starter.
I'm still on the hunt for my next apartment, but I'm already shopping for the décor.
Who says house shoes can't also be chic?
I tried Sakara's Level II Detox this fall and loved the ritual of using these droppers each morning and night. It made something as mundane as drinking water into a luxury.
"After moving to LA from Brooklyn, I've been oddly getting serious FOMO about wearing sweaters. Did I really care about sweaters before? Not at all, but I think in order for my brain to register that it's actually winter, a sweater is in order. Other than being extremely cute, this one from Ganni has a cut-out which is unexpectedly practical for LA's warm days and cool nights."
"These are technically men's sneakers, but when you have big feet like me, you find yourself mining the men's shoe section extremely often. I love how Nike is experimenting with different materials like mesh paneling."
"If my entire closet were Wales Bonner, I'd be okay with it, but also probably very broke. Her Adidas collaboration is like a taste of the minimal Wales Bonner aesthetic but at a more wallet-friendly price point."
"Other than being a great designer, Simon has a way with photos. It's crazy to me how every image in this book was taken on an iPhone because you would never tell otherwise. I imagine this book will never leave my coffee table."
"I only wear gold jewelry, and seeing that it's been time for me to upgrade my rings to something more substantial, this one tops this list. Another aspect that's important to me is that Khiry is a Black-owned and Black-designed business."
"This bag is definitely on my wishlist. It's an investment piece but feels so timeless yet modern. Gorgeous."
"I just moved into a new condo and am currently on the hunt for gorgeous coffee table books to elevate my living room. This one is at the top of my list."
"Jewelry is the one thing I always want (and am happy receiving) without fail. And I'm particularly obsessed with this initial piece from the demi-fine, Miami based brand Martha Calvo."
"Despite the fact that I'll have nowhere to wear sparkly knee-high boots just yet, I really can't stop thinking about these boots from Dear Frances. Santa, please help me."
"If you read the slack messages between fellow editor, Lauren Eggertson and myself you'd know that I have a slightly neurotic obsession with the brand Miaou. I've been eying their corsets for quite some time, and this brown leather baby is at the top of my wish list."
"I'm a huge fan of the fashion photographer, Tyler Mitchell's work—and as I continue to decorate my home I can't imagine not having this stunning collection of images on my coffee table."
"As basic as it sounds, I really can not stop thinking about this Jacquemus bucket hat. It's at the top of my list for gifting (just haven't decided who it will be gifted to)."
"I've been wanting to buy a soft knit bra for the longest time. Since I haven't scooped one up yet, I'll be adding this delicate and versatile one to the top of my holiday wish list."
"I'm a big fan of anything lined in cozy sherpa and shearling. These plush slippers are the perfect addition to my cushy winter wardrobe."
"My love of collared polo sweaters continues—I'd be a very happy lady if I received this statement Zara knit this holiday."
"Ribbed knit dresses are my weakness. I love the striking silhouette of this Amazon gem which looks super comfy yet elevated—perfect for holiday dinners at home this year."
"I'm a huge fan of Levi's jeans, I've never met a jean that fits so well as my pair of wedgie denim does. This leather pair looks so good, especially for the colder months and I keep going back to it!"
"I have a love for cow print and these clogs are just calling my name."
"Someone, please get me this so I can live out my Harry Styles and Princess Diana dreams, thank you!"
"Comfy and cozy things are all I want to purchase right now. If I owned these shearling-lined Birkenstocks, I would not be taking them off."
