shit i bought and liked no. 81: all i want for christmas is...
Listen, we’ve all got a Christmas list, and I can’t help that most of the things on mine are on sale for one last day!!! If you’re not already maxed out on your Cyber Day/Week/Month spending, these may be helpful suggestions (or things you need to add to your own list!). And if this somehow finds its way into a partner/friend/parent’s inbox “by accident”… I won’t tell! In no particular order:
A kitten or puppy who’s snuggly and sweet and doesn’t destroy all of my stuff or give me an allergic reaction.
TAYLOR SWIFT TICKETS, I WILL DO ANYTHING.
Ok, those first two were in particular order, but the rest of this is not, starting with this swimsuit from Same and a ticket somewhere warm.
The Row Banana Bag. Dying to find this in chocolate brown, but the black is stunning too.
Big Baies! An XL version of any favorite scent feels extra special.
I love an advent calendar and having a little treat to look forward to every night! This tea calendar was a hit with my family last year.
These festive but not too-cheesy holiday socks.
I’m late to the Ultra-mini Ugg party, which means everyone wants them and they are sold out literally everywhere. Nothing Santa can’t handle though, right???
This bucket hat by Janessa Leone (I wear a medium!).
A batch of the very best NYT cookies—a couple baked, the rest as dough balls that I can freeze and bake whenever the mood strikes!
A cozy weekend at The Maker in Hudson.
This set of the most perfect lip gloss shades ever made. You can split the set across friends or use them as stocking stuffers, but I need these all for myself.
Knowledge that you’ve reduced your carbon footprint with this at-home composter and that Santa will treat you extra well next year for being so selfless with this wishlist item!
These Khaite beauties that I would build an altar to in my closet but inevitably be too terrified to wear out.
My 886th robe.
The new Oura Ring, though I think it is criminal that the rose gold is more expensive than any other finish.
A good facial. I love Sofie Pavitt in NYC for anything corrective and Emma Goodman in LA for the most relaxing hour-plus of your life.
People hate on gift cards, but if it’s to somewhere specific you know they like, I think they’re one of the better options. I’d take one to my pilates studio, any of my favorite coffee shops, or Violet Grey any day.
And last but not least, my personal ultimate foolproof gift.
There you have it! THIRTY+ gift options! If there was ever a time to wish you were Dudley Dursley, I imagine it would be now. As I release you all back into the internet wild, please be safe, make good choices, and save some money for Giving Tuesday!!! If you need some ideas, 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, SELAH LA, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, and Suffering the Silence. I’d love to hear about the orgs you’re donating to too—drop suggestions in the comments so everyone can get ready to go for tomorrow!
Here’s hoping you all feel the thrill of finding the last in-stock item in your size on sale!!!!
