Chanel Rouge Coco Baume Hydrating Beautifying Tinted Lip Balm


Rouge Coco Baume Hydrating Beautifying Tinted Lip Balm

When we discovered Sofia Richie’s wedding lipstick was a simple swipe of Chanel lip balm, we couldn’t get our hands on it fast enough. Perfected by makeup artist Pati Dubroff, Rouge Coco Baume was selected to give Richie a sheer, not saturated, comfortable lipstick for “kissable lips” as she previously told Vogue. Not to mention, the formula includes a fruit- and olive leaf derived oil for moisturizing properties. It was our go-to all summer long, and we don’t see that changing through the fall and winter. Tinted lip balms are as practical as they are chic.

Currentbody LED Light Therapy Face Mask


LED Light Therapy Face Mask

We’ve been seeing increased interest in LED face masks this year, and for good reason—the treatment uses different wavelengths of LED light to combat a wide range of skin concerns—from acne and dark spots to wrinkles and inflammation. In our testing and research, we found Currentbody mask as the best overall. It’s FDA-approved, made of a flexible silicone that fits snuggly on the face, and is even clinically proven to reduce wrinkles by 35% in four weeks.

J.Crew Cashmere Sweater

Typically, we talk about color trends on a seasonal basis, but electrifying red hues have dominated this entire year. Just a few months ago we were using the bright pops of red to have a tomato girl summer, and this winter, nothing has changed—well, accept for a bit more coziness to withstand those chilly days ahead. To nail gift giving season, we’re reaching for J.Crew’s timeless knits that are made to bring joy into any wardrobe. High-quality cashmere, at an affordable price point—what’s not to love?

Adidas Samba Sneakers


Samba OG leather and suede sneakers

The beloved Adidas Samba made its first debut in 1949, but in 2023, it’s still proving to be a timeless, reliable trainer to wear over and over again. Not only has it become an all-time bestseller over the years, it’s also a go-to for some of our favorite style stars, from Kendall Jenner to Hailey Bieber. And the timeless silhouette has proven to be a closet mainstay that’s as relevant as ever, thanks to the refreshing continued collaborations Sporty & Rich, Pharrell’s Humanrace, and Grace Wales Bonner, founder and designer behind Wales Bonner.

Salt & Stone Candle

It’s not often a candle reaches cult status—especially when its not an eau de parfum reimagined as a home scent from the labels you’d expect: Diptyque, Le Labo…So, we’ve been closely tracking Salt & Stone’s candle’s rise to prominence closely. Its Saffron & Cedar scent, to be specific, has had the TikTok girlies in a chokehold. Many dub it the “best candle they’ve ever smelled” while some say it makes their home smell like a hotel lobby, in any case, its blend of saffron, oakmoss, neroli, surf wax, sugarcane, and cedarwood creates an alluring, sexy, and dare we say beachy aroma destined for widespread appeal.

Dorsey Kate Lab-Grown Necklace


Kate round cut lab-grown white sapphire silver rivière necklace

2023 is the year of lab-grown jewelry. Even luxury conglomerates like LVMH are getting in on the movement. But it’s Dorsey’s consciously-created designs that are truly leading the way, especially the Kate necklace here. If you aren’t familiar with the brand, Dorsey was found by fashion industry veteran Meg Strachan, who wanted to create a brand that offered beautifully crafted, high-quality jewelry at more accessible price points. 

Dyson Airwrap Multi-Styler Complete Long


Airwrap Multi-Styler Complete Long

The Dyson Airwarp finds a top spot in our beauty gift list year-after-year—particularly for that special someone with a penchant for a high tech gadget. You’re likely familiar with the brand’s Coandă effect which manages to dry and style hair with minimal heat damage, but that’s only half the draw. The device arrives in a set with nine attachments for versatile styling—the barrel curlers, volumizing brush, and smoothing dryer are three of our favorites. What’s more, the brand just debuted a custom set for those with curly hair—the Airwrap Complete Long Diffuser—featuring a diffuser and wide tooth comb attachment to seamlessly style curls and coils.

Prada 3D Floral Shoes


floral ballerina flats

From the moment these museum-worthy shoes walked down the runway, it was clear to see that they would be a hit with the fashion-forward crew. Browse through the best street style moments and you’re sure to see them on the feet of the most stylish fashionistas. This season, blossoms are having quite a moment—not just your traditional floral prints, but in-your-face, 3D blooms that almost appear to come to life. We’ve seen the origami-like appliqué appear on everything from dresses to handbags, and—our undeniable favorite—these cleverly designed Prada flats.

Loewe Squeeze Bag


small squeeze chain leather hobo bag

It’s hard to keep up with the number of viral handbags that Loewe continues to pump out. But the Squeeze bag tops our list for its shimmering chain strap and effortlessly cool slouchy design. As the name suggests, this new handbag comes with a squishy soft handle that’s easy to grab and go or sit comfortably on your shoulders. 

Rhode Peptide Lip Tint

One Hailey Bieber’s most exciting Rhode Beauty launches this year is the Peptide Lip Tint, a pigmented version of the buzzy Peptide Lip Treatment that took social media by storm last year. Serving as the brand’s first makeup product, this tint is enriched with a conditioning blend of shea butter, peptides, and lactic acid to keep lips soft and smooth while enveloping them in a wash of sheer-to-buildable glossy pigments. Take your pick of four shades—our favorites are Toast, a rosy-taupe hue for a latte girl, nude-esque lip and Ribbon for a more ballerina pink color.

Ugg Tasman Slipper

What started as an essential for surfers has now evolved into the ultimate effortlessly-cool fashion must-have. It girls like Gigi Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski are just a few of the names of the ever-growing list of Ugg fans. With soft shearling lining the inside and a thick, padded sole, they’re winter’s comfiest shoe for casual chill moments. And a instant-winner for gift-giving season.

Alaïa Le Coeur Bag


Le Coeur leather chain shoulder bag

There are several brands putting their own twist on the heart-shaped bag, but we have to give credit to Alaïa’s Le Coeur, which jumpstarted the movement. From mesmerizing gold to playful leopard print, there are so many colors to choose from, but the classic black shade is the style that can be worn from day to night.

Celine Triomphe Sunglasses


Triomphe oval metal sunglasses

A pair of designer sunglasses always make for the perfect present. This year, Celine’s sharp metal has all of the It girls under its spell, thanks to hypnotizing gold and silver accents, plus that easy-to-identify Triomphe logo. 

Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream

The Rich Cream

Check the vanities of any celeb, tastemaker, or Vogue editor, and you’ll likely find at least one Augustinus Bader product—even more likely that said product is The Rich Cream. It’s cult-favorite status has been reached thanks to its ability to moisturize, firm, even, and illuminate the skin immediately upon application. You have the brand’s lauded TFC8 complex to thank for that, plus a blend of evening primrose oil, hyaluronic acid, argan and avocado oil. I’ve recently got my hands on a bottle to help my skin transition into cooler temperature ahead—its formulation helps prevent water loss from the skin, supports the skin barrier, and protects against environmental stressors. Even more, the brand just released the cream in a limited-edition chrome vessel designed by Haider Ackermann that amps up its gift appeal.

Maison Margiela Tabi

Maison Margiela

Tabi split-toe leather ballet flats

We’ve always loved Maison Margiela’s quirky cool Tabi shoes. But this year, the split-toe silhouette catapulted to internet fame when a Tinder date stole them from Lexus, a knitwear designer. With a quirky cool split toe design made fro expertly crafted leather, it’s easy to see why they’ve become the coveted talk of the town.

Ben-Amun Silver Cuff

Yellow gold pieces tend to dominate the jewelry box, but every few years, silver creeps back in to command the spotlight. Such was the case in 2023, when silver creations of all kinds saw a major resurgence. Most notably on Instagram among the fashion crowd: Chunky, wavy bangles—worn solo or on each wrist—in a shape reminiscent of Elsa Peretti’s iconic design for Tiffany, if not her actual one. Combine the two and you get something as hyper-desirable and hyper-giftable as Ben-Amun’s silver cuff, perfect for the jewelry on your list.
