'What I Want for the Holidays' - Refinery29, Deputy Editor
"This one is a no-brainer. It's the perfect balance of trendy and classic. The embellishments and chain feel fun, but not so much so that I'll tire of this bag after a few months. And I really do need another black bag to add into the mix..."
"So, this isn't the sexiest of gifts, but I love Tocca scents, and I also really love doing laundry, as lame as that might sound. For years, I lived in a building without laundry, so after having to send it out for all that time, I really appreciate being able to sort and wash and fold—and play around with luxe detergents—exactly the way I want to."
"This is a little bit of a seasonally specific gift, but I feel like this glittery number would a) be really easy to find in the abyss that is my handbag, and b) bring a serious amount of joy to my inner magpie."
"Lot18 has become my go-to for gifting newly engaged friends, but I hate to miss out on all of the half-case-of-wine fun, so I'm adding this to my own wish list. I'm not an oenophile by any measure, but I do enjoy a selection of exciting new red wines—and I go through quite a few bottles during the holiday season. So, this would be perfect. Plus, it's a seriously amazing deal."
"I love that this dress could be dressed up or down, from low-key cocktails to something approximating black tie, both during holiday-party season and the upcoming wedding season. It looks comfy, ultra-flattering, and like I said, completely versatile. Clearly, I need it immediately."
"I saw the fancy FLOS version of this arc lamp at a very lovely nail shop this weekend, and fell in love all over again. I can't really afford that kind of splurge, at present, but this CB2 version feels more reasonable, but with the same effect."
"This is a great, warm, open space for a careful manicure. And lots of organic goodies — and bubbly, should you care for it — but the real selling point here is the 10-minute massage. Completely magical, and only $14."
StyleList caught up with our friends at Refinery29 to ask what they want and are giving this holiday season. Noone knows gift giving, fashion, and beauty like the Refinery29 team, and we were thrilled to get an inside sneak-peak. First up: Deputy Editor, Neha Gandhi:
"Normally, I assemble a Pinterest board of clothes and accessories on my wish list and forward it to my sister ahead of holidays and birthdays, but this year, I'm getting a little creative. While there are a few dresses, bags, and baubles I'm coveting, I'm really into the idea of making my home more of an entertaining space this year, so I'm veering toward decor and other get-my-life-in-order goodies, as far as the wish list goes."
