As we get into gift giving season, we thought it would be fun to check in with some of our favorite tastemakers and ask what they have on their holiday wishlists this year. From green beauty experts to designers, these women are smart, stylish, and have the best taste. We’re so excited to present our Influencer Holiday Gift Guide.
Colette Shelton (@cococozy)
Colette Shelton has impeccable taste in all things home, as you can tell by her COCOCOZY x etúHOME farm table plank. It was even one of Oprah’s Favorite Things, which should tell you how fabulous it is. In Colette’s own words “it can be put on display, serve guests, and will be the best gift of the season!” If you’re looking to go for a big ticket item, her Happy Day Rug is something she’ll be giving to friend’s because “the price point is so good”. But she brings her signature style to every aspect of her life, from the prettiest Pat McGrath lipstick in “the perfect hue of red” to easy-to-slip-into Uggs for the “admitted Ugg super fan.”
Susie Wright (@susie.wright)
Susie is a fashion blogger, but you can expect much more than just stylish picks for your closet. From coffee table books to jewel-like perfume bottles, add an instant dose of luxury to your life. Since Susie collects coffee table books, right now she’s eyeing this Slim Aarons book or Bunny Williams book to “let my mind escape.” There’s nothing better than a good hair day, and the Dyson Hair Dryer “gives the best blow outs ever!” While she’s getting ready, she would live to light the Baccarat Rouge 450 candle from Maison Francis Kurkdijan. Speaking of light, she’s “always wanted to try” Dr. Dennis Gross’s blue light device. For a bit of wearable luxury, nothing beats silky pjs like these Papinelle silk pj’s or a personalized pearl initial necklace from Stone and Strand.
Katey Denno (@kateydenno)
Makeup artist and clean beauty expert Katey Denno will help you get glowing with the perfect upgrade for your makeup drawer. She’s really going for it and asking for the True Botanicals Renew Hydration skincare line, which comes with a cleanser, serum, vitamin C booster, and facial oil. In the same spirit, she has the brush line from Westman Atelier on her list, too. It comes with every single brush you could ever ask for, and they’re so beautiful you won’t mind seeing them on your counter. La Bouche Rouge’s Universal Reds lipstick trio makes the cut, too. A session with H.Gillerman and her essentials oils is just as luxe and this gold-and-emerald herringbone collar necklace.
Danielle Chang (@thedaniellechang)
Danielle Chang is a chef and host, and her picks are just as delicious as her food! Let’s start with this absolutely gorgeous Hermes Apple Watch. The new grommet double tour “is a fun, chunky build on the original and perfectly sized for the Apple Watch”. It’s practical and glamorous, which can also be said of beautiful indoor plants from her local Chinatown favorite and a stylish Filofax that will keep her organized because she “still works best with appointment books that allow me to see a week at a glance.” Finally, she has a soft spot for hats! Whether it’s a fedora from one of her favorite milliners, Jennifer Hoertz, or a super-fun hat honoring the year of the Tiger from Suzhou Cobblers.
