4 Editors on What They're Gifting (and Hinting for) This Holiday Season

Sponsor Content Created With Disney

In case you haven't noticed, Disney's Minnie Mouse has been a major inspiration for us this holiday season—she was, after all, the muse behind our Holiday Issue. The style icon's bold, playful, and classic characteristics have even trickled down to the way we're approaching gift-giving this year. Whether we're shopping for our mom who has classic style, or we're eyeing a pair of shoes for our sister with a bold attitude, there's a touch of Minnie in everything we're doing this season.

Now that the holidays are near, my co-workers and I started chatting about gifting, and as it turns out, we all could use some help in that department. Shopping for those near and dear to our hearts should be fun in theory, but 99.9% of the time, we end up panicking and go for the first candle and fashion-y coffee table book we spot. We vowed to each other that this year, unless the candle is something that is specifically on someone's wish list, we're steering clear. When we came back to compare notes, we noticed something: We have seriously been influenced by Minnie. See what we have on our lists here. 


Ever since fighting the last-minute Christmas Eve shopping crowd a few years ago, I've vowed to never be that person again. I start ordering things for my friends and family as soon as the idea comes to my mind. As for my own wish list? My style is more classic, so I found some perfect pieces I can subtly hint to my boyfriend.


I'm guilty of shopping for gifts last minute, especially for birthdays or holiday occasions. Maybe I'll get it together in 2020, but in the meantime, I was excited when I found gifts that not only work for my playful style but also match some of my friends' personalities, too.



When it comes to holiday shopping, I love to be ahead of the game. I try to take care of all the people I'm gifting first before I focus on myself. That's right, I have no shame in treating myself to something that matches my bold personal style at the end of the year too—it's a reflection of all the hard work I've done.


I don't think I really outgrew my love of the holidays because the minute the clock hits midnight on November 1, I go into full festive mode. This year, my excitement has doubled because of my 7-month-old daughter who will be celebrating her first Christmas with us. But with that being said, I think I deserve a little something special this year for all the literal labor I went through. I have classic style, and the bag I want sitting under the Christmas tree come December 25 fits the bill.
