“My sister-in-law recently misplaced a couple of her favorite earrings, so I’ve been on the hunt for a great pair of hoops to give her this year. These beauties are substantial enough to make a statement, but petite enough that she can wear them every day.” — Elana Fishman, Page Six Style Editor
“I slip these boots on almost every day in the colder months because they’re so comfortable and keep my feet warm. They’re super versatile and can be dressed up or down, so you can easily wear them for a quick trip to the drugstore or a day of shopping.” — Alexandra D’Aluisio, Page Six Managing Editor
“While I was loyal to drugstore mascara for years, trying this YSL product completely changed the game for me. It’s by far my favorite formula for an instant volume boost (those before and after pictures don’t lie). It makes a great luxe stocking stuffer, but if you’re after a larger present, it’s also available in gift-wrap ready set ($78, a $110 value) featuring the brand’s matte lipstick and Libre fragrance.” — Hannah Southwick, Page Six Commerce Writer/Reporter
“These are the fluffiest towels that are super-absorbent and stay luxe after washing. I got them as a wedding present and now gift them to all of my friends who are getting married as well.” — Melissa Minton, Page Six Style Senior Reporter/Editor
“This Marc Jacobs tote is giving major icon vibes. When one of the biggest NYC department stores features one of NYC’s most iconic designers, the result is destined to become a status symbol. This bag isn’t just available in leather, either; you can nab it in an impressive selection of textures, textiles, and tones. Opt for the cotton canvas, cozy teddy or Bloomingdale’s-exclusive denim patchwork. As for my big brown leather pick shown above, I can only think of one other big brown bag that has been more popular…” — Barret Wertz, New York Post Network Commerce Editorial Director
“If you’ve been sleeping on Bloomingdale’s-exclusive brand Aqua, now’s the time to wake up! The label recently teamed up with artist Kerri Rosenthal on a collection in honor of breast cancer awareness (and benefiting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation), which includes this cool-but-not-too-cutesy knit crewneck that’d make a great gift. What better way to help a loved one wear their heart on their sleeve?” — Elana Fishman, Page Six Style Editor
“I’ve been searching for a signature scent, and this London-based brand makes so many of celebrities’ favorite fragrances. I love all of the Jo Malone colognes I’ve tried so far, and what better way to sample them all than in this cute gingerbread-themed set?” — Hannah Southwick, Page Six Commerce Writer/Reporter
“I own these booties in all three colors, and wear them more than any other pair of shoes in the fall and winter. They are really easy to transition from day to night. The heel isn’t so high that they’re hard to walk around the city in during the day, but just high enough to work with a ton of out-on-the-town looks.” — Kristin McNamara, New York Post Senior Director of Social Media & Audience Engagement
“Both of my parents retired this year and are officially Floridians, so I’ve been having so much fun shopping for ideas to spice up their retirement life, like these chic striped pickleball paddles! The stripes give the paddles a little more flair and fun, and I love that I’m getting this for my parents because it’s not something they may feel necessary to splurge on themselves.” — Caroline Blair, Page Six Reality TV Reporter
“I purchased this after it went viral on TikTok and I’m in love! Anywhere you can find it still in stock is a win.” — Melissa Minton, Page Six Style Senior Reporter/Editor
“I started wearing Hokas long before they were trendy, and I certainly have no plans to ditch them anytime soon. They’re just the right blend of style and support to wear anywhere from the gym to a casual Saturday stroll. I always (literally) run my trusty trainers into the ground, so I’d love to unwrap a fresh pair for Christmas this year.” — Hannah Southwick, Page Six Commerce Writer/Reporter
“This coat isn’t my usual vibe, but a friend convinced me to try it on in the store recently and I ended up falling in love with it. While it’s yet to be cold enough to wear it, I can see myself getting a lot of use out of this fun piece in the months to come!” — Kristin Contino, Page Six Style Writer/Reporter
“As soon as I tried this blazer on, it was a no-brainer that I was going to purchase it. It’s super versatile, and the velvet on the collar makes it feel festive. You can easily dress it down with a pair of jeans or dress it up for a holiday party with a black dress.” — Kristin McNamara, New York Post Senior Director of Social Media & Audience Engagement
“I bought this gray cashmere hoodie during a clearance event last year, and I’ll likely be grabbing more colors this season. It’s incredibly soft and manages to make your loungewear look just a tad more elevated — plus, the price is amazing compared to other cashmere brands.” — Kristin Contino, Page Six Style Writer/Reporter
“I asked for two of these charming black-and-white dog bowls with the Mackenzie-Childs signature check print last year, and they’ve put a smile on my face ever since. Dog bowls take up a decent amount of space in my apartment, so I love these, because they actually add to my kitchen instead of being another clutter-causing, boring pet accessory.” — Caroline Blair, Page Six Reality TV Reporter
