I actually already received my big Christmas gift (this bag – so excited!!), so I’m not expecting anything else under the tree this year… but a girl can dream, am I right?! While I always receive requests for budget-friendly gift ideas, I had a few readers request more of a fantasy gift guide to give them inspiration for what to ask Santa for this year. Naturally, I’m happy to oblige. You might think clothes are at the top of my list (which would be a good guess – they always are), but I’m actually focused more on a few tech and fitness items, and a couple of home purchases as well.

I’d love to get my hands on an Apple watch, the Mirror (it’s a discreet home fitness system you can place ANYWHERE), and a pressure cooker for whipping up fancy meals in a flash. There are a couple of clothing items on my wish list right now… I’m dyyyyiiiiinnnngggg to get my hands on a Gabriela Hearst bag, namely this one. I love the accordion shape, neutral snakeskin and structured top handle – SO f’ing chic. There’s currently a wait list, so clearly other people think so too! I’d also love to invest in a classic camel coat. I have several budget-friendly styles, but I’d really like something a heavier cashmere/wool weight for winter and in a flattering wrap style like this or this. Oh, and I also could really use a refill of my favorite moisturizer.
