Jackie Fields, Senior Style + Beauty Editor: Maison Francis Kurkdjian makes my favorite fragrance (I wear Baccarat Rouge 540 nine months of the year) so, when I read the brand was re-launching its' iconic holiday candle, I put it at the top of my wish list. The scent has the divine likeness of a freshly-cut tree, which is awesome because I have no room for a real one in my apartment, and I am certain I'll find other uses for this collectible whimsical votive for many winters to come.

Alex Apatoff, Executive Editor: This wagon may be more expensive than my first car, but it's also way nicer and better engineered. I get more compliments on it than anything else I own, and there's a reason for that: They've thought of every possible compartment and perk, and it folds up like butter. (I've got the standard model, but for the A-lister in your life, you'll want to splurge on the luxe.)
