I've Worked at Who What Wear for 10 Years—Here's My Ultimate Gift Guide


In my 10 years at Who What Wear, I’ve written many a gift guide. From affordability-focused stories to budget-less roundups to my latest on what to buy kids and parents, I’ve done it all and often think I’ve seen it all, but every year, I manage to be amazed at the new options that cross my screen. Between the bags, belts, trinkets, and baubles, there’s never a shortage of pieces that catch my eye, and this holiday season is no exception.

Of course, you don’t have to take my word for it. You’re about to see just what I mean. Below, I’ve compiled what I like to think of as my ultimate wish list—were I planning to buy myself 46 gifts. From my dream Chanel bag to only the chicest of candles to the personalized pieces I can't stop raving about, I've got it all and then some. Does this sound up your alley? Simply keep scrolling to get started.


Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently Editor-at-Large. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2024, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch Summer House.
