What We're Buying: The Last Gifts on Our List
Colleen Kratofil, Style Writer-Reporter: This winter I need something to give my all-black outfits a major splash, and this high-shine metallic piece is just the thing. It's festive enough to wear right after I open it on Christmas day and match my most sparkly outfit for a New Year's Eve bash.

THALIA SODI COLLAR NECKLACE
Brittany Talarico, Style News Editor: What am I wearing New Year's Eve? Unclear. (I'm a last minute shopper!) I do, however, plan to build my outfit around this chic choker.

Oui Shave Razor
Jillian Ruffo, Associate Beauty Editor: It may be too pretty to use — but chances are, the girl who has everything (and is causing you endless holiday-shopping stress) does not have this gold-plated razor or santal shave oil.

Sarah Kinonen, Style & Beauty Editorial Assistant: For the kings and queens of last-minute shopping (I'm with you), there's one gift I always hand out during the holiday season that always goes over well: gift cards. Specifically, gift cards for new pairs of sneakers. Since it's almost time to nail down New Year's Resolutions, why not give the gift of a stylish workout wardrobe?

MELISSA JOY MANNING EARRINGS
Alex Apatoff, Senior Style Editor: The last person on my shopping list is … me! And because I was so good this year (don't ask anyone in my life to confirm that) I'm going a little splurge-y with these cool-but-classic, delicate and versatile hoops.

CASHMERE WATER BOTTLE COVER
Jackie Fields, Beauty Editor: It's cute. It’s cozy. It’s cashmere! Those are just three reasons I’m wishing for this cable-knit Saks Fifth Avenue Collection hot water bottle cover to camouflage my very necessary, but admittedly not-so-adorable, bedside accessory.

FRESHLY PICKED MOCCASINS
Andrea Lavinthal, Style and Beauty Director: The hardest person on my holiday list to shop for this year happened to be the smallest person on my list this year: my boyfriend’s six-month-old niece, Scarlett. I got her a bunch of onesies when she was born and she already has all the best toys. My friends with babies rave about these soft-soled moccasins which, according to the brand, are “easy to put on, easy to take off, and most importantly: stay on your child’s foot.” That’s all well and good, but I would’ve bought them for the adorable design alone because SO CUTE.

Sarah Ball, Fashion Market Editor: When I don't know what to get someone, I always opt for jewelry. You don't have to worry about sizing and who doesn't love receiving it? These Graziela ear cuffs are super trendy, but the pavé diamonds and size makes them refined enough to be the perfect gift for any lady on your list.
