22 Must-Have Gifts on Our Editor’s Wish List

Believe it or not, it’s high time to start thinking about what you’ll be gifting this year and to whom. Whether you’re invited to a holiday gift exchange or can’t decide what to get for your family members, we’re here to help. Our editors have the 411 on what’s in this season, so we enlisted our very own senior editor, Erin Fitzpatrick, to give us the scoop on what she’s shopping for the holidays.

Erin has an eye for picking pieces that are bound to sell out. So when she tells us to buy the Ugg boots, you better believe we add them to our carts. This season, she’s turning to Macy’s to check off everyone on her list, eyeing everything from classic beauty buys to fashion-favorite coffee-table books. Keep reading to see everything on her wish list and what she has to say about it.
