It's time to set our personal wish list aside and focus on the gift of giving. There's only 10 days left before Christmas, and this year, our editors have concocted a long shopping list to check off. Take a peek inside to see our delectable picks, comprised of chic scented candles, standout arm candy, and stylish tech accessories ranging from all price points. Let the shopping madness begin!
Blake Lively, Brad Goreski, Olivia Palermo, and More of Our Favorite Celebs and Designers Talk Holiday Gifting!
Ever wonder what your favorite celebrities and fashion insiders are eying for the holiday season? We've had holiday shopping on the brain all month, so we tapped a few of our favorite celebs to find out exactly what they're gifting — and what they're hoping to get this season. Step inside to see and shop their wish list picks, and maybe steal a few gift-giving suggestions as well. From Blake Lively's sweater obsession to Olivia Palermo's perfect gift for girlfriends, click through for a little insider access into celebrity holiday shopping.
Dashing designer Nicole Richie joined friends in LA for the opening of the Pressed Juicery decked out in a white and black ensemble. She styled her Helmut Lang T with a high-low skirt, suede Christian Louboutin booties, and a leather Helmut Lang Jacket. Nicole's statement House of Harlow accessories — chevron-style necklace and stud clutch — added a punk-chic vibe to her neutral basics. Embellished adornments are a perfect way to punch up any outfit, so snag Nicole's exact necklace and clutch here.
Jessica Alba layered up on her way to Jay-Z and Kanye West's Watch the Throne concert in LA. She shielded herself from the Winter chill with dark basics — black T, gray skinnies, and an open leather jacket — and a sheen green puffer jacket. Jessica stowed her concert staples in her tried-and-true Proenza Schouler PS1 satchel, while her red leopard-print scarf and Neo-Navajo Cobra Society boots jazzed up her laid-back look. Snag her bag, boots, and other like items now.
Winter wardrobe sensibility and holiday dressing can sometimes be a little tricky. While it's more fun to throw on a sparkly New Year's Eve cocktail dress and forget the rest, it'll be hard to ignore the cold weather nipping away at your skin-baring attire. We'll follow the lead of these season-savvy celebs. They know how to top off their formal eveningwear with equally cool outerwear, and they do it with the most plush fabrics. From metallic satin to fur trim, we've got two words for you: luxe toppers. Rachel Roy warmed up in an oversized colorful floral-patterned cocoon jacket, Olivia Palermo adorned her shoulders with a gorgeous pink fur stole, and Miranda Kerr mixed a ladylike silhouette with a funkier graphic print on top. Click through to see which celebs are sporting ornate outerwear and shop our editors' picks at the end of the slideshow.

FabSugar: Congrats on the new show! What can we expect to see this season?
Brad Goreski: It's a bit of a balance; the show is very focused on me building my brand, so you'll see how I transition from an assistant role to lead stylist, so people will really get to see how I work and how I develop my process. But yes, my family life and personal life is a big focus as well — I wanted to show people the other side of my life; my great boyfriend, my great family, and how they make me who I am.
FS: What were some of your career highlights in 2011?
BG: I would say one of my biggest was definitely styling Jessica Alba for the BAFTA Awards [in Atelier Versace] and also at the Met Gala! She looked amazing. Also, I had a great time on my Details magazine shoot, and the editorial I did with Liya Kebede for the March issue of InStyle was a highlight as well.
