Gift-giving season is upon us, which means we're happily doling out advice about the best gift ideas we have to share. Whether it's affordable finds that have earned an editor's stamp of approval or epic luxury items we're losing it over, there is no shortage of amazing ideas from our team of Who What Wear editors. That being said, we also have a number of items that have landed on our personal wish lists that we secretly hope we'll be unwrapping in the near future.
With that in mind, I asked our team to share the items they can't stop thinking about right now. With finds ranging from trendy jewelry to cozy outerwear to cult beauty products, I promise you'll be inspired after taking a scroll through the picks. Ahead, see our holiday 2021 gift guide, including every editor-approved find to have on your radar this season.
"Whether your conversation skills are still somewhat rusty (thanks, pandemic) or you're just looking to connect a little deeper with your loved ones this holiday season, this game is pure delight. Some cards will make you laugh or smile and others will make you think. It's great for all ages, and the cherry on the top is the game is created by an amazing female entrepreneur."
"I know I have a series of fancy dinners on my calendar come January, so I'm looking for some tops that I can style in more than one way to bring along with me. I can't think of anyone who wouldn't love this top. It's so easy to wear."
"A trip to Paris would be nice, but this candle would also do in the meantime. A night in for me requires a good fragrance, and anything from Diptyque puts me at ease. This is a limited-time fragrance so you won't regret going all in for it."
"We're in for a cold winter, and I would love to be prepared for when the temperature really drops. The oversize ACNE Studio scarf in bright colorways was a viral fashion moment last year, I predict it to be just as big (no pun intended) this year, so I think this would make for the perfect gift that any fashion girl would appreciate."
"I'm pretty sure this shearling jacket was made for NYC winters. My co-workers have ensured me that it's as soft as a cloud and legitimately warm. No more stressing about ruining the outfit with a heavy coat—this jacket is the outfit."
"I've been super obsessed with vests and waistcoats lately, especially when they're paired with matching trousers like this set from Who What Wear Collection. They work for everything, from the rare trip to the IRL office to a night out, so fingers crossed I find one wrapped up under the tree this holiday season."
"Caudalie's Beauty Elixir will forever sit in the number one spot on my list of desert-island products. Sadly, my bottle is running too empty for comfort at the moment, which is why I'm hoping and praying that I receive a refill come gift-exchange time."
"Okay, so it's not the most original gift request, but this Frasier Fir candle from Thymes has been a favorite of mine for more than a decade. I get one every year when they are released and will never grow tired of burning them down until nothing at all is left at the bottom. It's the best holiday candle by far."
"I think throw blankets are a perfect gift for someone you may not know extremely well, but still want to surprise with something. Ultimately, who doesn't get cold and who doesn't love something visually stunning? This particular design from Cold Picnic is limited edition, which adds to the exclusivity."
