The piece: Alex and Ani Metallic Daze Bangle Set
The price: $358
Why we want it: They say it's better to give than to receive, but we don't think holiday shopping is that cut-and-dry. We had to do some soul searching when we came across this sleek set of studded, spiked, sparkly silver bracelets. From Alex and Ani, a jewelry brand known for its expandable bangles, these accessories make the perfect present — they fit any wrist! Plus, you can wear them all together to make a serious statement or one at a time for a more delicate approach to holiday styling. Everyone on your list will love them. Our recommendation? Buy an extra set for yourself so you don't miss out on the fun. Or hey, if you've got to, buy one, keep a bangle for yourself, and share the rest with your five favorite ladies. What they don't know won't hurt 'em.
We're always a sucker for shiny things, including extrasparkly party purses during the holiday season! Sure, there are endless options on the market, but why not create something that's one-of-a-kind? Create the perfect clutch in just two steps! We promise, you (and your clutch) are sure to be the hit of the party.
As the design guru for some of Hollywood's hippest (ahem: have you seen Rachel Bilson's home?!), designer, store owner, and author Kishani Perera knows what's up. With her soulful styling and treasure-hunt approach to shopping, we just had to find out which items were topping her gift list. Take a look at the things she's dying to get and give this holiday season!
What's on Her Wish List:
These dreamy, marbleized plates ($8-$13, originally $16-$24) have me swooning! I would love to unwrap these beauties on Christmas morning!
These gorgeous 18k gold tea cups ($125 each) would make an afternoon ritual that much more special! Anyone want to send a pair my way for the holidays?!
My pups are my babies, so I'd be thrilled to get any one of these adorable outfits or accessories for my little ones! I’m especially smitten with the pea coats ($88) — so stylish!
I’m completely mesmerized by this set of rose gold flatwarefrom West Elm! Super chic. Keep reading to see what she's planning on giving this year!
With an eye for eclectic design and a radar for discoveries with artistic talent, interior designer Taylor Jacobson is the type of person you want to shadow for a day of shopping.
Her eclectic spaces always include at least one showstopping piece — the type of piece that begs the question: "Who makes this?" Curious to know more about her design resources, we decided to get her short list of go-to artisans. Check out the five she can't live without!
"Jason is a remarkably talented lighting and furniture designer who works with metal, wood, leather, and repurposed objects in a very fluid way. I'm constantly inspired by his work. Recently he created a custom chandelier for my client's dining room, and it's now the centerpiece of the space. His lighting collection is available exclusively through Lawson-Fenning."
"Kelly is an inspiring artist and interior designer living in Los Angeles. I was first introduced to her KL Studio line of 'Geo' ceramic planters, dishware, and candles. Her latest creation is a series of handblown glass and metal pendant lights, available in custom colors and finishes. I love the little geometric bead detail on each."

Ask a design lover to bring a white elephant gift, and you should expect the wacky but not the tacky. At this popular holiday party of sorts, guests draw numbers to determine a random exchange of tchotchke gifts. Since we know you're a high-style lover with a sense of humor, these tongue-in-cheek gifts should be right up your alley. Let the games begin!
Bohemian style is all about bold patterns, bright prints, and vibrant colors — all elements we think make a great gift. If you know a haute hippie or a lover of eclectic design, we found just the way to suit her style. Without heading to a flea market or searching Etsy, these earthy accents, whimsical prints, and patterned textures are perfect for your free-spirited friends.
The piece: Quill and Quiver Ornaments
The price: $10
Why we want it: There are some things that when you first see 'em, you know you got to have 'em. Jayson Home's Quill and Quiver Ornaments are just that. Glittery but decidedly edgy, we can see these hanging from Katniss Everdeen's Christmas tree. Scattered through your Christmas tree or dangled from a window — string lights optional — this eclectic touch is how we plan on adding holiday cheer!
