Roxanne Assoulin Bracelets
Andrea Lavinthal, Style + Beauty Director: These colorful enamel letter bracelets have been on my wish list since I spotted them on a colleague this summer. I’m asking for one for each of my kids’ names, plus a stack to mix them with.
Louis Vuitton Candle
Jackie Fields, Senior Beauty Editor: My mother collects candles, so every holiday season, I give her an extra special votive. Louis Vuitton’s sweet peony and raspberry scented wax is encased in the most luxurious packaging (including a leather handle) I’ve ever seen. But in addition to being the most beautiful thing on her vanity, this votive has a meaningful purpose: it’s part of the brand’s partnership with (RED) to fight AIDS globally. For each purchase, $60 goes toward financing programs around the world.
SARTO by Franco Sarto Riding Boot
Brittany Talarico, Senior Style Editor: These boots have the entire PEOPLE style team talking, which is why they are on the top of my wish list. The rich wine color goes with just about everything in my closet, and I love the equestrian-inspired silhouette. Plus, the 2 1/2″ chunky block heel is ideal for all-day wearability. Now I just have to remind my family Secret Santa chat about my shoe size.
Venus et Fleur Dried Floral Arrangement
Jackie Fields, Senior Beauty Editor: I, on the other hand, have become obsessed with these dried floral arrangements ever since I got my precious dog and could no longer mind burning candles in my apartment. This set of four scents my bedroom without being overwhelming. I received my first box last holiday season, and since each arrangement lasts a year, the timing couldn’t be more perfect for a fresh bouquet, don’t you think?

Summersalt Cashmere Turtleneck
Brittany Talarico, Senior Style Editor: Summersalt, the buzzy brand that has revolutionized the fit and fabrication of swimwear, recently launched a ready-to-wear line, and the label’s sweaters are becoming just as popular as its swimsuits. This color-blocking turtleneck style — comprised of 70 percent wool and 30 percent cashmere — features a slight high-low hem that makes it the perfect match for leggings or jeans.
Kendra Scott Chain Bracelet
Kaitlyn Frey, Assistant Editor: I gifted this delicate, sparkly chain to a friend for her birthday and immediately fell in love with how beautifully it layered with the other bracelets on her wrist. While I gave her the gorgeous rose gold one, I’m dying to get my hands on the yellow gold design to stack with my other bracelets.
Patagonia Fleece Zip-Up
Colleen Kratofil, Style Editor: The office is always set at below-arctic temperatures which leaves me huddled under two desk blankets all day long. I want to revamp my winter officewear by getting a zip-up fleece that will fit over anything I wear — even thick sweaters. I’m putting this Patagonia item on my wish list because it’s heavy-duty and Fair Trade certified, which means money goes directly back to its factory workers.
Ashleigh Bergman Collective Initial Earrings
Brittany Talarico, Senior Style Editor: I love everything about these 14-karat gold earrings, but what I love most is their 2-in-1 versatility. The initials are removable if you choose to wear the turquoise huggie style on its own. You can also add the initial — featuring a single diamond — to a necklace.
Andrea Lavinthal, Style + Beauty Director: I have an entire shoe rack of sneakers in my closet, but you wouldn’t know it because I wear the same pair of Rothy’s almost every day. And why wouldn’t I? They’re comfortable, cute and machine washable so you can keep them looking box fresh even if your toddler smears avocado on them (true story). My mom and sister in law are always complimenting me on mine, so I’m going to buy them each a pair for Hanukah this year.
Missoma Advent Calendar
Brittany Talarico, Senior Style Editor: What’s better than an advent calendar filled with candy? An advent calendar filled with jewelry. This holiday season, Missoma launched its limited-edition “12 Days to Shine” calendar which offers a selection of the brand’s best-selling pieces — including the Gold Mini Molten Necklace, Gold Leaf Choker, Gold Double Chain Bracelet, Gold Star Bracelet, Malachite Gold Mini Shield Hinged Hoops and Gold Mini Claw Charm Hoops — a set valued at $900 but being offered at a fraction of the price for the holidays.
Casper Weighted Blanket
Kaitlyn Frey, Assistant Editor: I have trouble falling asleep, but I’ve been told using a weighted blanket helps reduce stress and promote relaxation. I’m hoping that snuggling up underneath this cozy one from Casper can help me feel more well-rested in the morning.
Lou & Grey Faux Sherling Teddy Coat
Brittany Talarico, Senior Style Editor: I’ve been a fan of the teddy bear coat trend for a while now, and this winter I’m going to finally take the plunge and invest in one. In fact, I decided I’m going to gift this to myself as a pre-Christmas present so I can wear it on the holiday party circuit. Lou & Grey is known for its chic-and-cozy clothing, and this curled faux sherpa fabric definitely delivers ultimate comfort.
Daisy London x Esteé Lalonde Unity Ring
Hanna Flanagan, Editorial Assistant: If I’m being honest, I was sold on this Daisy London collaboration when I saw the whimsical campaign images shot in Morocco during golden hour. But luckily, the 28-piece line lived up to my high expectations. This dainty band paired with others from the collection — like the Trinity Ring or the Thea Stacking Ring — makes for the cool curated look of my dreams.

Aspinal of London Wallet
Colleen Kratofil, Style Editor: I’ve been using the same credit card case for so many years that it’s currently a tattered mess. So since I’m in desperate need of an upgrade, I want a piece that will last me another five-plus years. This wallet from Aspinal of London is chic, sleek and fits everything in a compact compartment.
Saje Diffuser Kit
Brittany Talarico, Senior Style Editor: In an effort to become more of a morning person, I’m putting this “energizing” diffuser set on my list. The kit comes with two invigorating diffuser blends — “Liquid Sunshine” featuring citrus scents like grapefruit and bergamot and a “Deep Breath” blend boasting notes of eucalyptus and peppermint — developed to help kickstart your day. The device offers five hours of continuous mist, plus, its chic geometric shape makes it a sleek accessory for a bedroom.
Ring Concierge Pavé Diamond Ring
Kaitlyn Frey, Assistant Editor: I don’t like to think about the amount of money I’ve spent on costume jewelry that quickly tarnishes and ultimately ends up in the trash. But this delicate band by Ring Concierge (the jeweler that designed JoJo Fletcher’s engagement ring!) is made with 14-karat gold and features 17 glimmering pavé diamonds across, so it’s one that will stand the test of time. Since fine jewelry is on the pricier side, I’m crossing my fingers that I find this ring in my stocking on Christmas morning.
Wilson NFL 100 Football
Jackie Fields, Senior Beauty Editor: Thanks to Marie Kondo, I have been on a tchotchke diet for some time. But TBH, this limited-edition football commemorating the NFL’s 100-year mark is at the top of my most-wanted list. Even cooler than its gold hue is the fact that it’s tech-enabled, so super-fans like me can access exclusive content via the Wilson App. If this doesn’t give new meaning to the term #Baller, I don’t know what does.

Electric Picks Necklace
Andrea Lavinthal, Style + Beauty Director: Electric Picks is my go-to for affordable, on-trend jewelry. Padlocks are everywhere right now, and this pendant is the perfect size for layering with other necklaces (like this heart style).
Kaitlyn Frey, Assistant Editor: The dry winter air destroys my skin and sinuses. I’ve been wanting to try a humidifer for a while, but was overwhelmed by all the choices. While this one from Dyson is pricey, I already own the blow dryer and vaccum, so I know their products truly perform. What really convinced me to ask for this one for Christmas was the fact that it’s on sale $150 until Nov. 26 — a rare major discount for a luxury gift like this!
