Maison Francis Kurkdjian Candles


Jackie Fields, Deputy Beauty Director: As long as I've lived in New York City, I've been low on holiday traditions. For the first few years it was because I traveled. But now, I blame laziness. No real tree or baked desserts filling my home with the holidays' telltale smells? Enter: fresh pine, candy apple and cinnamon-scented candles that spread the cheer with none of the clean-up. And as far as I am concerned, these votives from one of my favorite fragrance brands are the prettiest and most aromatic around.

The Huntress The Artemis Rituals Essentials Set

The Huntress_BathingRituals

Andrea Lavinthal, Style + Beauty Director: Have you ever walked into a store and thought, "I want to live here?" That's the experience I had during a recent visit to The Huntress in Pound Ridge, NY. Housed in a century-old building, it's a gorgeous wonderland filled with hand-carved furniture, vintage-inspired decor and elegant barware. There's also a heavenly collection of bath products like this lavender, rose and black pepper-scented set.

Frances Valentine Earrings

Gift guide editors' picks
Frances Valentine

Alex Apatoff, Executive Editor: Not having bought a pair of statement earrings since 2019, I realized that all my dressy jewelry was overdue for a refresh when I recently tried to accessorize for a wedding. These understated but impactful drops are modern and versatile — I'll pair them with a cocktail dress, but don't be surprised to see them on a Zoom call sometime soon.

Anthropologie Coupe Glasses

Morgan Coupe glasses

Michelle Lee, Style + Beauty Editorial Assistant: My niche hobby of collecting aesthetic glassware has overfilled my kitchen cabinets – but that won't stop me from adding these beautiful pastel-tinted coupe glasses to my trove. Picture-worthy and suitable for any festive concoction, this set is truly best in glass (get it?).

Buy It! Anthropologie Morgan Coupe Glass Set, $56;

Outdoor Voices Sweatpant

Outdoor Voices sweatpants
Outdoor Voices

Stephanie Petit, Royals Editor: I may cover stunning tiaras, heirloom jewelry and jaw-dropping ballgowns on a regular basis, but let's be honest — my work-from-home uniform is primarily hoodies and sweatpants. I was introduced to Outdoor Voices two Christmases ago when my sister-in-law gifted me these, and they quickly became my go-to pair (and believe me, I have plenty to choose from).

Buy It! Outdoor Voices CloudKnit Sweatpant, $88;

Shani Darden Facial Sculpting Wand


Jackie Fields, Deputy Beauty Director: If you've never used a facial sculpting device, you're missing out. But not all of these power tools are created equal. Celebrity esthetician Shani Darden's version is equal parts insanely relaxing and extremely effective. (I've got the selfies to prove it.) If you're really looking to splurge on yourself or a loved one, buy two in order to massage both sides of the face simultaneously.

Buy It! Shani Darden Facial Sculpting Wand, $399;

Deborah Pagani Hair Pin


Andrea Lavinthal, Style + Beauty Director: I don't normally get excited about a hair accessory, let alone a fancy hair pin, but when my favorite influencer, @things.i.bought.and.liked, said she swears by this one, I had to check it out. She was right (she's always right). It makes even the laziest bun look "done" and all the moms at preschool dropoff will comment on it which makes it worth it for the compliments alone.

Alex Apatoff, Executive Editor: As much as I love online "window shopping," in actuality, I don't need a thing, and often ask friends and family to donate to charity on my behalf instead. This gift card allows the recipient to give directly to any of the nearly 2 million charities in their database, ensuring your gift will be meaningful to your loved one and impactful to the greater good.

I use Corkcicle products for everything from drinking my morning coffee to keeping cool an entire bottle of wine on picnics. The insulated drinkware can keep hot drinks warm for minimum 4 hours and your wine will be cold for a whole day!

Betty Buzz Gift Box

Betty Buzz Holiday Gift Guide
Betty Buzz

Ana Calderone, Food Editor: You'd bring a bottle of a wine as a holiday gift, so why not grab something for the sober-curious set? As someone who recently gave up alcohol, Blake Lively's collection of sparkling mixers have been my go-to for when I want to sip on something extra special at a party. I love the cute bottles just as much as what's inside them. This boxed collection of all her flavors — like lemon lime, grapefruit, ginger beer and more — would be a thoughtful gift for sober friends or new moms, and it can easily be paired with a bottle of alcohol for everyone else.

Hope Night Body Butter

hope night butter

Jackie Fields, Deputy Beauty Director: My mom loves luxuriously-scented lotions, but would never splurge on herself. So I plan to stuff her stocking with this amber, patchouli and vanilla-spiked body butter, whose net profits go to a good cause: the Hope for Depression Research foundation. Brand founder Audrey Guss created the line as a tribute to her mother, who suffered from depression, and who found joy in the beauty of flowers.

Brittany Talarico, Deputy Style Director: We have one of these in our bedroom and my 19-month-old daughter loves to call to "Siri" to play some of her favorite sing-a-longs. So we're going to surprise her with one under the tree for her nursery. Cocomelon marathon here we come!

Dana Rebecca Designs Initial Charm


Andrea Lavinthal, Style + Beauty Director: Personalized items make a great gift for just about anyone, but they're particularly meaningful for moms who want to wear their child's initials or monogram. This diamond letter charm has the perfect amount of bling and can be layered with other pieces.

Boardsmith Cutting Board

BoardSmith assorted cutting boards

Sonal Dutt, Editorial Director, Food & Lifestyle: Every food editor has a not-so-secret obsession, and mine is cutting boards. These gorgeous, custom-built butcher blocks are durable enough to take on any kitchen prep task — whether it's chopping oily sun-dried tomatoes, pounding chicken breasts or thinly slicing onions — but still stay odor- and stain-free, and won't warp over time. They're made of high-grade hardwoods (like hard maple, black cherry and black walnut), and their materials are sourced from sawmills who use sustainable forestry practices. The best part: The smooth wood surface won't blunt or damage your knife blades as you cut.

Buy It! The Boardsmith Cutting Boards, $125 and up;

Oddbird Co. Selin Sleep/Play Dress

Erica Gerald Mason, Site Producer: It's a nightgown. It's a robe. It's a wrap dress. I bought my first wrap over the summer and it's been a game changer: a no-brainer choice for mornings when the coffee pot in the kitchen seems so far away.

UnHide Lil' Marsh Blanket

UnHide LilMarsh Blanket

Breanne L. Heldman, Senior Editor, TV: As the TV editor here at PEOPLE, networks sometimes send me boxes of things with which to curl up on the couch and watch their shows. You really would not believe how many blankets I have received over the years — especially since the beginning of the pandemic. But one arrived recently that was clearly a keeper. The UnHide blanket had me downright disappointed by the random warm days in New York City this November, I was so craving curling up in it! It's just plain dreamy. It feels like the fur coat I coveted as a little girl (and changed my mind about soon after) but is vegan and truly the softest, coziest thing I've ever touched.

Buy It! UnHide Lil' Marsh Blanket, size small, $69;

Saje Natural Wellness Diffuser

Saje essential oils and diffuser

Jackie Fields, Deputy Beauty Director: I use my diffuser a lot (serenity NOW), often pouring eucalyptus and grapefruit oils to it to literally fill the air in my work-from-home space (a.k.a living room) with a sense of calm. But how holly jolly would it be to receive this cute and festive diffuser, along with the brand's seasonal aromas? Very holly jolly, I say.

Buy It! Saje Natural Wellness Aroma (Be) Free Ruby Red, $118, and Peppermint Twist and Winter Bouquet Essential Oils, $18 each;

Chelsea White, Night News Editor: My dogs mean everything to me and so I cannot wait until "Santa Claws" brings them a set of the Joyfolie's PJs for me and them. I also plan to give the cute floral Ruby PJ Set to a number of friends with fur families so they can all stay cozy and cute all winter long.

Brittany Talarico, Deputy Style Director: My 18-month-old just entered the "picky eater phase" I've heard about from mom friends, but secretly hoped would never happen to us. (Parenting, amiright!) In an effort to make dinner time more fun, Santa will be bringing her this custom Beach Day placemat from BaubleBar's MiniBar line. I also might do some accessory shopping for myself in the name of self-care.

Ranavat Jewel Box Set

Ranavat Jewel Box

Sonal Dutt, Editorial Director, Food & Lifestyle: I've come to cherish my nightly skin- and hair-care routine. (Yes, really, cherish — is this what they mean by adulting?) Ranavat's products are a big reason why. Based in Ayurveda — an ancient South Asian system of whole-body healing that promotes balance inside and out — the line is filled with pampering and potent products that have noticeably improved my skin and hair. This gift set is a great introduction to Ayurvedic beauty, and includes six of their most popular products — including my favorite saffron brightening face serum, fortifying hair serum and gentle cream cleanser.

Brittany Talarico, Deputy Style Director: I've officially been married long enough that the pans I registered for are just not cutting it anymore. In an effort to spice up my cookware — and spend more time in the kitchen in 2023 — I'm putting the viral Caraway pan set at the top of my list. (The social media ads finally got me!) The pieces (which have thousands of glowing reviews) are non-stick, ceramic-coated and chemical free. Plus, the brand is offering a special holiday offer right now with an extra 20% off.

La Collection Privée Christian Dior Set

Editor's Picks gift guide, Dior

Jackie Fields, Deputy Beauty Director: Every beauty editor has a favorite sub-category: mine is fragrance. At present, my well-edited collection of scents stands at about 25, and two are from Christian Dior's fine-fragrance collection, including Gris Dior (front, center) which is my fall weather go-to. (It's a complex and indescribable scent that gives me that warm feeling of wearing a scarf in fall every time I wear it). Starting at $125 a bottle, this gorgeous set is nothing short of a steal– and a token any fragrance lover will treasure.

Buy It! La Collection Privée Christian Dior Fragrance Discovery Set, $250;

Barry's Classes

Melody Chiu, Senior West Coast Editor: I am admittedly terrible at working out. But something about Barry's infamous Red Room gets you excited for the challenge. After finishing a class — which involves high intensity internal training — I always feel stronger, both physically and mentally. The instructors are very encouraging (they'll never shame you!) and the curated playlists are consistently on point.

Summer Hours New Wave Candle


Andrea Lavinthal, Style + Beauty Director: My gifting motto is "when in doubt, get a candle," since they're pretty, they smell good and most people don't buy nice ones for themselves. This votive, from the fragrance brand Summer Hours, has a fresh beachy scent and the blue glass container brightens up any space.

House of the Dragon: The Complete First Season

House of the Dragon DVD set

Mackenzie Schmidt, Home and Travel Editor: This is a must have for any Thrones fan. In addition to the complete 10-episode first season of the new series, based on George R.R. Martin's Fire & Blood, in 4K Ultra HD, this set includes two never-before-seen featurettes and a total of 73 minutes of bonus content. For the merch-lovers of the realm, be sure to spring for the "Steelbook" edition. It's not quite Valyrian, but the metal case will look right at home next to Martin's tomes on their book shelf.

RTIC Coffee Mug

Gift guide editors' picks

Alex Apatoff, Executive Editor: I have to admit, I wasn't sure what to make of this mug when I received it last Christmas ... but now that I walk my kindergartener to school, I totally get it. It has been a lifesaver on busy mornings and convenient to have on hand to pick up a refill at our local coffee shop on my way home. Now I think I need two (and will be giving them to all the other busy moms I know).

Farmgirl Flowers

Ana Calderone, Food Editor: Entertaining on a major holiday can be stressful, but the perfect host or hostess gift can go a long way. My favorite gesture is to send a festive arrangement prior to the big day to whoever's home we're eating at so they can incorporate it into their tablescape or holiday decor. Pick something that requires little work for the host — like this gorgeous Farmgirl Flowers wreath made of dried celosia, or this bouquet that comes arranged and in a neutral vase. Ordering flowers online can feel like a gamble, but the female-run business has delivered stunning blooms for me every time.

Buy It! Red Carpet Wreath, $100,

Jennifer Behr Headband

emerald headband

Jackie Fields, Deputy Beauty Director: If the holiday season were unofficially coined hair accessory season, it would be alright with me. And when I spotted Princess Beatrice wearing this pretty piece, I was reaffirmed. The headband is Jennifer Behr, whose namesake line of barrettes and other baubles can be seen regularly on celebrities and in magazines. Of the dreamy velvet version, Behr told me, "Velvet is so elegant – the richness of it works so well for the holiday season. You can wear it with a velvet dress for holiday parties or it looks gorgeous with silks and knits too." You had me at head-to-toe velvet.

Alex Apatoff, Executive Editor: I have a bad (read: genius) habit of buying a million gift cards to our local toy store and giving them out for every birthday and holiday. And while I stand by this time-saving, stress-free maneuver, I also want to step it up a bit and give the extra-special kids in my life (my nieces!) something a little more personalized. These bold, chubby crayons that spell out their names are oh-so-cute and perfectly practical.

Brittany Talarico, Deputy Style Director: I've been using this sunless tanning spray in preparation for a family vacation to San Diego, and it's so good that I'm going to surprise my mom and sister with it in their stockings this year. The formula smells amazing, acts fast and lasts as long as you want it too. It also rinses off with no unwanted residue or streaks.

Beis Backpack

gift guide beis backpack

Melody Chiu, Senior West Coast Editor: There's no better feeling than reaching your destination, but the travel itself? I think everyone can agree it's just the worst. But much like cute workout clothes, the pain is slightly alleviated when you've got some chic travel gear to tote around. Beis' new Cargo Backpack is super compact, has plenty of pockets for snacks, keys, phone, a water bottle, etc. — and its minimalist design makes me feel a little less like a slob kebob as I'm frantically running through the airport.

Jonathan Adler Tray


Andrea Lavinthal, Style and Beauty Director: Jonathan Adler has long been my go-to for hostess gifts because the brand has so many chic home decor items for under $100.

Alex Apatoff, Executive Editor: I think (spins around twice, spits) I have outgrown the phase where I lose a pair of sunglasses every time I leave the house, so I'm ready for a splurgier classic pair that isn't bedecked in logos and will last more than a few wears. This L.A.-based, handcrafted brand has just what I'm looking for.

Hexclad Bistecca Plate

Melody Chiu, Senior West Coast Editor: Celebrity go-to pan company Hexclad dropped a cutting board made out of sustainable Acacia that also doubles as a minimalistic plate. Their pans really are as good as they look — the signature nonstick surface gives steaks a good sear, but most importantly, you can scrape away to your heart's content with metal utensils without fear of ruining the cookware — and the new boards are the perfect way to serve a cozy holiday meal.

Michelle Lee, Style & Beauty Editorial Assistant: I'm a firm believer in the stars and will rep anything related to my sun sign (or rising sign for the astrology wizzes out there). I've always been a fan of Ana Luisa's affordable yet elevated accessories and when I saw these zodiac-theme chains – plated in 14K gold and personalized according to each sign – I knew they were fated to find their way into my jewelry rotation.

Courtesy of Augustinus Bader

Brittany Talarico, Deputy Style Director: The brand's cult-favorite Rich Cream moisturizer has been coined a "magic elixir," with celebrity fans that include Victoria Beckham, Jennifer Aniston and Melanie Griffith. And I'm here to say all the Augustinus Bader products live up to the Hollywood hype. So I was excited by the launch of AB's new Face Cream Mask, which delivers hydration, helps even out skin tone and overall firms the skin in about 8 minutes. (You can also wear it as an overnight mask!) The results take a month or so, but once you see the overall improvement of your complexion, it makes the price easier to swallow and proves to be a great investment for your skincare routine. (I'm hoping to find a bottle of this under my tree this year.)

Instead of a full Christmas creche, you'll find functional items in festive, moody colors scattered around the home, like this chic and cozy blanket from J. Queen. The emerald green is such a deep, gorgeous color, it can easily stay out year round. Plus, sherpa never goes out of style.

I'm hoping my 20-month old is excited when she unwraps it on Christmas morning. It's a perfect place for her to play with stickers, create, socialize with friends and enjoy snack time. We already have the Lalo highchair which she loves, so she'll be more than comfortable in the convertible seat.

Now, I can can pamper myself with that mega-relaxing aura from home. And though hydrating (with the fab illuminating face oil) while sipping on the kit's single-serve wines is amazing in itself, supporting two female-founded businesses is a bonus, too!

Aztech Mountain

Charlotte Triggs, Executive Editorial Director: Last year I decided to go skiing for the first time on a whim, and I became instantly obsessed! So I've spent the last year accumulating all the gear I need for me, my husband and three daughters to learn together on the slopes. Now that I'm set with the basics I can't help noticing all the more experienced skiers layer up with puffer vests as well. They keep your core warm and your arms free of the bulk you'd get with a mid-layer sweatshirt or thick sweater and you can layer the thin hood under a helmet for maximum protection from the elements. I love the beautiful colors of this luxe version by Aztech Mountain (a favorite of Olympians and trendsetters like Bella Hadid), so I'll be putting it on my Christmas wish list.

He can't be too annoyed at me for this swap, though, because not only are Vejas celeb-loved and ethically made, but I'm buying his next pair via City Workshop Men's Supply Co., a woman- and Black-owned store I found via small-business shopping aggregator Goodbuy.

Paisley & Gray Bucket Hat

Paisley Gray Bucket Hat Mens Wearhouse
Paisley & Gray

Dave Quinn, Editor: I don't know how this happened but I blinked and suddenly my nephew was a teenager in high school, wearing the same sorts of styles I used to wear when I was his age in the '90s. Even writing it doesn't make sense to me, but it's true. Boot-cut jeans, bowling shirts, skateboard sneakers — it's like he traveled back in time in my closet and stole all of my questionable fashion choices. It may not be my look anymore, but darn if he doesn't rocks it. That's why I know he'll like this burgundy corduroy bucket hat by Paisley & Gray from Men's Wearhouse. It's the same slick silhouette he's been rocking all summer, but now in a material that makes sense for the winter. Now I just have to find him a puka shell necklace and he should be all set.

Act+Acre Growth Treatment

Act + Acre

Michelle Lee, Style & Beauty Editorial Assistant: My hair's lack of ability to do anything but stay in a claw clip updo means that I seldom care for it with a consistent routine. As I've been been recovering from a year of spontaneous bleaching and hormonal scalp dryness, my haircare ritual has definitely been in need of an upgrade. The regenerating serum and scalp dermaroller found in this powerful duo will definitely inspire me to take my just-rolled-out-of-bed hair to new healthy territory.

Absolut Espresso Martini Handbag

The Absolut Espresso Martini Handbag by Nik Bentel

Carly Breit, Platforms Editor: I'm very much in a more is more era. That, combined with my love for caffeinated beverages, makes me excited to treat myself to this Absolut collab with designer Nikolas Bentel when it goes on sale Nov. 25. Like Lizzo's tiny red carpet bag or SJP's recent pigeon purse, this pick sacrifices some utility for fun and honestly, that's just the vibe on some nights. (Especially those that require actual espresso martinis to stay out until midnight.)

Anita Ko Earrings


Brittany Talarico, Deputy Style Director: After I saw Hollywood's "It" girls Sydney Sweeney and Taylor Russell wearing these Anita Ko earrings, I instantly hunted them down and have been dropping hints to my husband. Thanks to the price tag (for single stud), I might have to sell it as a holiday gift, birthday gift and push present. For now, they'll remain on my "when I win the lottery" wish list.

Andrea Lavinthal, Style and Beauty Director: I love fancy bar soaps. But I don't use them in the shower. Instead, I put them in all of my drawers because the leave my clothes smelling amazing. These pretty vegetable-based glycerin soaps have an incredible evergreen aroma, and I'm told they create a rich lather that makes me want to use them as intended. That's why they are my top stocking stuffer this year.

Nicholas Rice, Associate Editor: Who knew I would ever get excited over a razor, but here I am! This Double Header Electric Trimmer from Dollar Shave Club is incredible! There's so much to love about this razor, from the battery indicator to the LED light that helps find hairs, but I really love how the company knows the importance of not using the same razor heads on your face and body — including lower regions. The product also comes with a portable USB stand (perfect to bring on vacations!) and includes multiple face and body guards to make sure you get that perfect trim each time you shave.
