Shit I Bought and Liked: I Don't Want A Lot For Christmas...
…who am I kidding? Obviously I do.
Shitters! There’s snow on the ground in Chicago, I blew through my entire Black Friday budget days ago, and we’re nearing the end of the best shopping season of the year. What better time to eke out a little Christmas list?! These are the gifts I hope are under the tree for me, but who knows—maybe you’ll find a little inspo for yourselves (to give or receive!)?! Plus, because it’s Cyber Monday, you’ll save a bit on most options if you grab them today! Don’t say I never did anything for you!!!
The Row Dahlia Bag. A black bag at the top of my wishlist? Groundbreaking! The Row has made both of my favorite daytime bags—it’s only natural that they’re my pick for nighttime too. I haven’t seen this style on resale yet, but there are great ones on TheRealReal all the time.
Speaking of, nothing says you love me (and understand my shopping habits) quite like a gift card to TheRealReal.
Westman Atelier Les Etoiles Set. Gucci Westman knows how to do a gift set, and this set of her bestselling shades reimagined in different products is no exception. Her lip glosses were my favorite gift last year—I left my favorite shade (Rudey Nudey) in one of my purses over the summer and cannot explain how happy I was to find it months later.
At this price, I better see a few pairs of these cashmere socks under the tree! Between those and these cashmere-lined gloves (also at the lowest price I’ve seen all year), my fingers and toes might actually make it through my first winter back in NYC.
I’ve been eyeing this simple necklace for years, and at 20% off, now is the time. (I’ve worn a stack of their diamond rings on my middle finger for years now and just love them if you’re looking for a little more sparkle.)
Will my sister hate me for copying her with this cashmere zip up? Yes. But she’s not your sister, so you are in the clear! And at this price… I might have to do it anyways.
I’ll never say no to comfy cozies, especially from The Great. I have an eye on this quilted set in case anyone wants to treat me!
How chic would this dual charger tray look on a bedside or entry way table? The linen version is slightly less expensive than the leather, but that brown leather is enough to make me want to take up permanent residence in wood paneled study with a crackling fire.
I’ll always be happy with an hour on a massage table or a facial bed, but Sofie Pavitt’s Nice Ice is the next best thing at home.
Nothing says pushing 30 like a second pair of socks on your Christmas list. This one is made out of sweatshirt material, which sounds like heaven.
I am desperate for this accent chair from Maiden Home. It’s cozy, beautiful, and wildly overpriced—a combination I consider my personal kryptonite.
THE NEXT BOOKS IN THE FOURTH WING SERIES, Rebecca Yarros we must have them!!! (Content warning: You’ll start reading this and want to recommend it to all the young adults in your life to experience the joy of reading. DO NOT DO IT.)
This Soft Goat Cashmere Set in greige sold out in my size before I could nab it and it was my biggest Black Friday regret. Will this option from Lisa Yang be my consolation prize? Now that’s up to Santa!
Forget a hat—this year I am going straight for the balaclavas (preferably this version).
Snow boots are not that fun of a Christmas present, unless the snow boots look like these.
An infinity style gift card a la Alix Earle/Braxton Berrios (I’d take mine to Bergdorfs, thank you very much!)
WORLD PEACE!!!! Haul that under the tree.
If you’ve ever wanted a window into my wishlist (beyond our monthly paid newsletters—upgrade your subscription to join the fun!), now you have it! More gift guides coming soon, but as you snap up treats for yourself and your loved ones, be sure to save some money for Giving Tuesday tomorrow. If you need some inspiration on where to give, here are a few of the places I come back to year after year: World Central Kitchen, The Equal Justice Initiative, Boys and Girls Clubs in your city, Vote Save America, and Planned Parenthood Action Fund.
