Contributing Editors’ Holiday List:
What I Want, What I’m Giving, Where I’m Donating

Edited by Nancy Rotenier

Stacey Mayesh, Fashion
What I Want & What I’m Giving Confetti System Piñatas to make loved ones’ homes feel festive and fun. These piñata gifts are really too gorgeous to use. They are works of art! Also, I’m giving European fashion magazines for all of my fashion-junkie friends—Numéro, Vogue Italia, Vogue Paris, Jalouse. At roughly $15 per issue, this is a luxurious subscription that nobody ever buys for themselves!
Where I’m Donating Instead of giving my children 8 gifts (one for each night of Chanukah), I help them decide on a charity they would like to donate to, and they give up 1 night of their own gifts in order to give a gift to someone less fortunate. It helps them understand the true meaning of gift giving and selflessness.

Sue Devitt, Beauty
What I Want To celebrate the holidays with all of my family together in one place.
What I’m Giving My new Microquatic Crystal Collagen Masque to keep all of my friends’ and family’s skin healthy, hydrated, and glowing.
Where I’m Donating The Africa Foundation—to help supply a new shipment of hippo water rollers to developing communities in Kenya.

Tanya Zuckerbrot, Health & Nutrition
What I Want Number one on my wish list is this gorgeous and classic equestrian ring by emerging jewelry designer Marcie Fleck.
What I’m Giving The girls in my office are so special to me, so I’m giving them Tiffany’s Diamonds by the Yard necklaces. The Tiffany necklace is something that I know they will appreciate and wear for years to come.
Where I’m Donating WIZO, the Women’s International Zionist Organization, a nonpartisan international movement dedicated to advancing the status of women, the welfare of all sectors of Israeli society, and encouragement of Jewish education in Israel and the Diaspora. The women involved in this organization are remarkable and come up with such creative ways to raise money for this important cause.

Michael George, Fitness
What I Want Workout gear, especially a new heavy bag stand from Valor Fitness, which has a speed bag, pull-up and dip bars, and a double rope bag.
What I’m Giving Vacation gifts are a great way to spend time with the family, so I’m giving my daughter and granddaughter tickets to Maui, so we can all have quality time together. We will be staying at Diamond Resorts, where I teach fitness classes in locations all over world.
Where I’m Donating Holiday gift giving means helping someone less fortunate, so I am donating to organizations that work with underprivileged children or save animals, like UNICEF and the ASPCA.

Anu Karwa, Epicurean
What I Want Fitness gifts like “Everyday” yoga pants from Lucy—these will motivate me to get my post-holiday butt in gear. Also, the David Yurman XXL Link Necklace—even my usual t-shirt-and-jeans uniform will look put together with this necklace. Finally, the J.Crew Cashmere V-Neck Sweater—I want to live in this cashmere sweater. The color will warm me all winter.
What I’m Giving For my husband—updates on the classic Paul Smith button-down.
Where I’m Donating My holiday donations go to the Step Up Women’s Network.

Divya Gugnani, Epicurean
What I Want A classic Little Black Dress is a must-have for holiday parties, and I’ve got my eye on this LBD by Red Valentino. It makes the perfect holiday present, complete with a bow!
What I’m Giving Since everyone is always looking for ways to slim down after an indulgent holiday season, I’ll be giving out copies of my new book, Sexy Women Eat, to my coworkers and family. As for my girlfriends, I’ll be playing Santa and dropping off sparkly necklaces from Send the Trend that never fail to please!
Where I’m Donating This year, my donations will be directed to Children’s Hope India, a New York-based nonprofit that provides clean drinking water, medical care, regular food supplies, and education to impoverished children in India.

Eve Robinson, Living
What I Want This stunning new pendant necklace from Barneys—Renee Lewis Opal Shake Necklace.
What I’m Giving This is one of my favorite book gifts—Designers Here and There by Michele Keith.
Where I’m Donating I am donating my time at a local soup kitchen.
