Not to brag, but I'm really good at gift-giving. Here's my secret: Whenever someone mentions a new brand they love or something specific they've been on the hunt for like a coffee-table book, a red lipstick, or an everyday handbag, I make a mental note of it (or sometimes a physical one in my phone). Then, when it's time to start shopping for gifts, I already have plenty of ideas I know that person will be excited about. Genius, right?
This year, I'm going into the holiday season super prepared. From the luxurious face serum that will end my mom's search to the printed throw that will look perfect in my best friend's new apartment, my gift ideas are seriously good. Plus, I can get everything at Neiman Marcus, which makes my shopping experience even easier. The retailer carries so many of my favorite fashion, beauty, and home-décor brands. And I'm not going to lie: I discovered quite a few new brands while I was scouring the site. I'm not one to keep a secret, so I'm sharing my 30 favorite items below. PS You can buy these luxe gifts now and pay over time thanks to the option to pay with Affirm* at checkout.
Accessories—like jewelry, a leather wallet, or sunglasses—always make great gifts because you don't have to worry about sizing. However, if you do have that info on hand, then a cozy sweater or some form of loungewear makes a perfect gift this time of year.

Wallets are one of those items people use every single day, so they're always an appreciated gift. I'm really drawn to this mini one from Bottega Veneta probably because this particular shade of green really had a moment in 2021. It's truly so cute.

The ultimate face serum that beauty editors can't stop raving about. My mom is going to love this one!
Home décor is my top choice when I'm buying gifts for hosts. (I know I can't be the only one who already has a calendar full of holiday festivities.) I found some pretty chic items, from a beautiful coffee-table book to cocktail glasses fit for the Queen herself.

This cozy throw blanket is perfect for bundling up by the fire during the holidays. I personally could use a new one right about now.
