We're Fashion Editors, and These Are the 36 Gifts Topping Our Holiday Wish Lists

fashion editor gift guide



As soon as November hits, our minds (and shopping carts) immediately begin to turn their attention toward gifting. You may think we’re raising this topic a bit early, but as fashion editors, our natural inclination is to always be prepared for the next big shopping moment. We spend our workdays investigating great picks from top retailers, such as Nordstrom and Net-a-Porter, as well on-the-rise indie labels, and as we inch closer to the festivities, we can’t help but stop and create a wish list for ourselves as we go. 

My fellow WWW editors and I have spent the year doing thorough research on the best items to shop, so you can expect to find an excellent wish list ahead. Our roundup includes everything from accessories that manage to be both bold and timeless at once to simple basics we’ll be able to wear over and over again. Start scrolling to discover the gifts so good, we’re hoping to receive them ourselves.

"The holiday season is a fantastic time to stock up on cozies. I love the butter color of this sweatsuit. The relaxed leg feels like a fresh update, and I love the seaming details on the pullover."

Shop the matching Sweatpants ($100). 

"The perfect cotton poplin button-down is hard to find, but I've been obsessed with all my other Caes pieces, so I suspect this one would check all the boxes. Crisp, great cut, and an on-trend yet wearable color."

"You could be wearing the simplest black turtleneck or white tee, and the addition of these earrings would take it to a whole other level."

Dressing up for a night out can be a real struggle in the winter. This top will have me out the door in seconds and dancing all night.

A bag I can take anywhere and everywhere? Yes, please.

A splash of color is just what my winter wardrobe needs.

Away suitcases are a cult favorite for good reason. I'm already planning a series of 2022 adventures, and this bag will make for the perfect sidekick.

"If all goes as planned, this asymmetric tank will arrive before the holidays so that I can wear it to every single party and event."

"I've been searching for the perfect lightweight coat for what feels like forever, so when I spotted this Saks Potts style at Ssense, I immediately added it to my holiday wish list. Can you blame me?"

"Am I using the holidays to embrace low-rise pants? Yes, but only because I saw these Dion Lee trousers on Jessie Andrews during NYFW and fell in love with them."

Shop Drew's Picks

"I cannot wait to get my hands on (or rather feet in) these gorgeous slippers by my friend, shoe designer Marina Larroudé. I saw these at Larroudé's holiday press preview and have been dreaming about them ever since. Lavender is my favorite color, and I love how the rhinestone bow makes this springy color festive enough for the holiday season. Plus, after this past year and a half of working from home, I'm definitely due for a house-shoe upgrade."

"Real talk? I live in chunky knit sweaters from November to March and tend to gravitate toward black, gray, and creamy winter whites. The Janelle Button-Up Sweater from the latest Who What Wear Collection drop checks all the boxes, so let's be honest: I'm not waiting for the holidays to unwrap this wardrobe staple. I just bought it for myself."

Shop Yusra's Picks

"I already own one of Staud's beaded Tommy bags, but is one ever truly enough? This moody-themed one is calling my name and would make the perfect gift because I can't imagine this not putting a smile on someone's face."

"Scarf season is here, and I'm ready to have a 'blanket' with me at all times. Not only can you find many affordable options on the market, but they come in such fun colors, which is needed for any dreary winter day."

"After hearing about all the hype around Charlotte Tilbury's Pillow Talk, I've been influenced and am ready to have it in my beauty drawer."

Shop Erin's Picks

"I think a beautifully classic bag makes a great gift because it will suit basically anyone's taste and is super functional. This bag will never go out of style."

"I think it's a great idea to buy stylish coffee table books that align with your giftee's interests. This is a brand-new Tom Ford tome that every fashion girl will want to get her hands on."

"I'd never be disappointed receiving a cozy gift. This time of year is all about staying comfy and warm, so a fuzzy robe-like cardigan like this is absolutely perfect."

"Trendy, affordable, and practical—any one of Emi Jay's hair clips, but especially this checkerboard print, makes for the perfect gift."

"Sweaters make for some of the easiest gifts to give (and the best to receive) around the holidays. This sweater-vest is a trendy pick that anyone would be excited by, not to mention it's incredibly soft."

"A pair of Margiela Tabis has been high on my wish list for a while now, and I'm convinced that if I owned this pair, I'd wear nothing else. Hint hint, if anyone in my life sees this…"
