Today I heard there are only 39 days until Christmas. I’m definitely not ready and if you aren’t either, we have our first favorite things gift guide of the season to help get you started on your shopping.

I love this set of 4 Aerin Holiday Salad Plates. They would make a great gift with a box of holiday cookies or a special dessert.


Don’t forget your furry friends this holiday season. Ralph Lauren has an entire Pup Shop but I especially love this Reindeer Shawl Dog Sweater which is on sale right now.


Diptyque always has the best holiday candles and this Limited Edition Trio of Candles will definitely win you brownie points with the recipient.

I love fair isle sweaters and accessories and you could upgrade your man’s winter wardrobe with this Birnir Fair Isle Brushed-Wool Sweater.

If you’re giving someone money for Christmas, why not include this Brass Piggy Bank to help them learn the value of saving.

What’s a gift guide without a few fantasy gift ideas. This blue Gucci Chiavari Chair is perfect for the person who has everything and it’s also available in other colors and styles here.

I don’t know anyone who is excited about Hedi Slimane now designing for Celine. Why not buy yourself or the special person in your life one last bag designed by Phoebe Philo like this Medium Classic Box Bag.

You can’t go wrong with anything Bunny Mellon related and The Gardens of Bunny Mellon is perfect for the chicest people on your gift list.

Some people scoff at giving candles for gifts but if they smelled this Christian Tortu Provence l’Hiver Candle, they’d feel differently. I bought this one in Sag Habor last weekend but luckily for you, it’s also available online.

This Best Made Co. Lumberlander Blanket is perfect for anyone outdoorsey.


Top of my wish list is this Cartier Tank Watch. I’d prefer it with a black strap but I certainly wouldn’t turn my nose up at brown.

One of my old clients loved this new Dyson Airwrap Volume + Shape Styler that she immediately texted me that I needed to get one. It also Dyson Airwrap Smooth + Control Styler for Frizz Prone Hair that is perfect for anyone who lives in a humid state down south


These Fair Isle Jacquard-Knit Socks would be a cute stocking stuffer. They also come in green.

I can’t imagine anyone who wouldn’t love this La Mer Spa Collection set for the holidays.

These Crystal Bow Flats are perfect for your flats loving friend or yourself when you can’t put on heels for one more holiday party. They also come in black and tan suede.

I always believe that if you are giving an ephemeral gift like money or a gift card that it should come with something else so the recipient will remember your gift like these Triangle Pouches. There are a lot more options here too.

Backgammon is making a comeback and this Aerin Croc-Embossed Leather Backgammon Set elevates the game to the next level. 


I love visiting DR Harris in London for gifts but now you can order this Windsor Shaving Kit online. They are perfect for any man who needs to shave on a regular basis.

Great English Interiors is the perfect gift for the Anglophile in your life.

Dust off those records in the attic with this Crosley Radio Turntable or introduce the younger people in your family to the joy of listening to music on vinyl. It is also available in walnut and black.

The best monogramed gifts for everyone on your list can be found at The Daily Edited. They have so many chic options that it’s the perfect place for one stop shopping.

I just picked up this book A Well-Behaved Woman: A Novel of the Vanderbilts in Sag Harbor too. It’s a great gift for anyone who loves a juicy society story.


I love the color of these Bang& Olufsen Wireless Leather and Aluminium Headphones for myself but they come in other styles and colors here.


These Aerin Winterberry Ceramic Cachepots would make a perfect gift filled with Amaryllis bulbs or Paperwhites.


This grey Cashmere Travel Set is perfect for any frequent flyer on your gift list. It is also available in navy and camel.

I’m going to gift myself this Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss Trio but it’s the perfect for any women in your life.

My friend Eva Chen at Instagram wrote this sweet children’s book Juno Valentine and the Magical Shoes with illustrations by Derek Desierto that would be a perfect for any little girl.

The pièce de résistance gift for children is this Milton & Goose Kids’ Classic Play Kitchen that will keep them entertained for hours.

Happy Holidays!

XOXO,
