If I Only Ever Receive 7 More Gifts in My Life, I Hope It's These

Anyone else always say "Oh, you know me; I'll love anything you pick out" when a friend or family member asks for holiday gift hints? And then offer up an awkward fake smile and a less-than-believable "OMG, I love it" when receiving the ensuing gift (that you actually kind of hate)? Same, but as it turns out, people prefer to spend their money on something they know we want rather than playing the gifting guessing game.

That's why this year I'm dropping major hints for all of the special gifts I'm really pining after. From stunning yet practical Forevermark diamond jewelry (I like to dream big, okay?) to a coat I've been eyeing for probably a full calendar year, these seven items are at the top of my wish list, and I have a feeling you'll want to add them to yours too. By the way, if you run into my dad, I won't be mad if you casually mention you know the perfect gift to buy me for the holidays.

I love simple jewelry, and this yellow-gold ring from the Forevermark Tribute™ Collection is the perfect piece to add to my collection. I'll wear it alone and stacked with other dainty rings.

As mentioned previously, I've been eyeing this coat for a while now but haven't pulled the trigger solely because it's never that cold in Los Angeles.

I can't see a reason I'd ever take off this chic diamond necklace. It's the perfect accessory to wear whether I'm in denim and a tee or a holiday party dress.

Here's another gorgeous necklace I'd probably never take off—so I guess that means I'll be layering the two. Don't mind if I do.

In a sea of black and white and gray sweaters, this green one from cult brand Ganni feels quite refreshing and fun.

These statement-making studs are so fun I'd likely leave the rest of my ear piercings empty while wearing them. 

I pretty much want every piece of clothing in animal print: handbags, belts, sweaters—the list goes on. But I'm going to start with the basics, aka these cool leopard button-up jeans.
