Editors’ Holiday Picks:
What We Want, What We’re Giving, Where We’re Donating

Edited by Lindsay Hahn

Melissa Meyers, Founding Editor
What I Want The Reiss Clio Sheepskin Aviator Jacket because it has the motorcycle look and it’s warm—not an easy combo to find.
What I’m Giving Jewelbilee dog tag necklaces as gifts to my closest friends and family.
Where I’m Donating I am donating to the Food Allergy Initiative.

Nancy Rotenier, Editor-in-Chief
What I Want Frye Veronica Slouch Boots in black, because I live in my old motorcycle boots, and they’re trashed.
What I’m Giving Fabulous, funky, costume jewelry such as these necklaces—they look great together, don’t they?!—from my more fabulous and funky friend, Candi Stamm.
Where I’m Donating Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, because I love my friends and family.

Lindsay Leff, Assistant Beauty Editor
What I Want Holiday gifts are supposed to be extravagant and fun, right? Robert Rodriguez’s Ostrich Feather Mini Skirt couldn’t be more of both!
What I’m Giving Anthropologie has one of the best kitschy yet chic home departments. I’m giving this plush and cozy Brava Throw. Who wants to be my friend?!
Where I’m Donating The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.

Katrina Caspelich, Assistant Fashion Editor
What I Want My beloved gold Full-Blooded Swatch died. So sad! I am really wanting this Marc by Marc Jacobs watch.
What I’m Giving Cooking gadgets, since not many people purchase them for themselves. My go-to item for the holidays: the Le Creuset Round French Oven.
Where I’m Donating I am donating to Big Brothers and Big Sisters of America, since I was a Big Sister for three years. I am the baby in my family and it was rewarding to serve as a role model to a youth in need of a friend.

Tara Murphy, Senior Vice President of Business Development
What I Want A short, puffy Moncler bomber jacket in black—what else?!—with fur trim to keep me toasty and glam on my morning commute.
What I’m Giving I’m getting an iPad for my mom.
Where I’m Donating The East Harlem Tutorial Program, a New York City-based program dedicated to providing students in Spanish Harlem with the support and services they need to succeed in the classroom.

Lindsay Hahn, Production Associate
What I Want Easy! Wellies. Glossy black Hunter boots. To celebrate my first winter in New York—stylish and practical to survive the snow this season!
What I’m Giving I’m hoping to give everyone in the office leopard-print Snuggies. We can be chic while getting work done!
Where I’m Donating The Humane Society of the United States.

Colleen Hagerty, Video Production Associate
What I Want My last wallet? Bought 3 years ago on sale for $5. Time for an upgrade! This yellow Marc Jacobs wallet will fit everything—and looks great when I pull it out of my bag!
What I’m Giving Small, festive gift bags for my girlfriends. This year, I’m including chic Chanel temporary tattoos and super-sparkly Deborah Lippmann nail color—perfect for holiday parties!
Where I’m Donating New York Cares’ “Winter Wishes,” which sends you “Letters to Santa” to buy gifts for children in need. It’s nice to feel a connection with the child who you’re being “Santa” for!

Kate Bryan, Social Media Intern
What I Want An Hermès enamel bracelet. I’ve always wanted to collect Hermès bracelets, as my mother did. My parents gave me my first for my birthday, so I hope one will be under the tree this year.
What I’m Giving Anything Kate Spade—the most adorable, whimsical, unique gift ideas. This Cheers gold pendant necklace will be for my sister.
Where I’m Donating Covenant House, which provides shelter, food, clothing, and more to homeless youth.

Kimberly Hedmark, Marketing Intern
What I Want I am obsessed with these Jeffrey Campbell Lace-Up Ankle Boots, discovered on my walk home from work the other day. They are on the very top of my Santa list.
What I’m Giving It’s not the money but the thought—especially since I am a college student! I am making a scrapbook for my friends with pictures of us since freshman year, to relive the hysterical, unforgettable moments we shared.
Where I’m Donating The American Brain Tumor Association.

Olivia Hayes, Office Manager
What I Want The walls of my new apartment need artwork, more specifically framed vintage posters. I have my eye on a 1960s James Bond poster with my all-time favorite Bond, Sean Connery.
What I’m Giving Bittersweets Famous Letter Rings in 14K gold for my closest girlfriends. I love the delicate hammered bands, and you can inscribe up to 5 letters, so I will personalize each ring.
Where I’m Donating Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.

Noelle Mihalenic, Video Intern
What I Want A Citrine by the Stones antique gold-plated bangle—I love the elegance, and it’s simple enough to wear with any outfit.
What I’m Giving The Steve by Steve Madden Cut-Out Booties for my cousin, who has a shoe fetish! They look hot with skinny jeans and dresses—plus they’re on sale!
Where I’m Donating Shelter Our Sisters.
