'Tis officially the season for gift-giving. For us, it’s 31 days of gift giving; for a month, we’ll be providing gift ideas for everyone on your list—from your hard-to-please parents to your ’90s-loving BFF and even your spoiled pet. Filled with creative picks that got our pulses racing, our Unwrapped holiday gift guides will make Christmas shopping a breeze this holiday season.
But because we're such intimidating ~experts~ we are also kind of hard to shop for. So this list is kind of a cheat sheet for those people who know and love and want to buy us stuff. But also, it's just a pretty good guide for anyone who has a difficult-to-shop-for person in their lives. (It also serves as a pretty good non-ink blot Rorshach Test, letting you know the inner workings of NYLON editors' minds. Spoiler: It's very goth in there, with shimmers of rose gold.)

Linda Farrow, 427 C3 Oval Sunglasses in Rose Gold, $1,105, available at Linda Farrow.
“No one does rose gold and gold sunglasses quite like luxe eyewear brand Linda Farrow. While I would kill for any of the gold-plated styles, I am drawn to this pair in particular for its retro-esque shape.” — Irina Grechko, Managing Editor

Samantha Pleet, Passion Dress in Black Illuminated, $279, available at Samantha Pleet.
“I honestly don’t think I’ve ever found a casual dress more perfect for me than this Samantha Pleet wonder. With the dark green leather jacket from the Arrivals (another wish list item—that’s right, I couldn’t choose just one) and my Rag & Bone boots…. *sigh* dreamy.” — Angela Lashbrook, Social Media Editor

I.AM.GIA, Tarantino Pant in Camo, $77, available at I.AM.GIA.
“I have been eyeing these pants since I first discovered the brand a few months ago, and go on the site every so often just to make sure that my obsession still checks out. I’ve been on a high-waist, baggy-leg pants kick lately that’s mostly due to the weather change, and think these are the perfect combo of trendy and comfy. If anyone loves me, help a sister out.” — Hafeezah Nazim, Digital Assistant

KKW Fragrance, KKW Crystal Gardenia Oud, $70, available at KKW Fragrance.
“If I told you how many times I’ve put KKW’s Crystal Gardenia Oud fragrance in a shopping cart and then X’d out of the shopping window, you’d think me mad. (I probably am!) Anyway, I love contributing to Kim Kardashian West’s empire and this particular product speaks to the femme boy that I truly am, while also playing into my more masculine side thanks to its bergamot notes. Kim really did that!” — Hayden Manders, Senior Staff Writer

Babaton, Stedman Coat in Pink, $425, available at Aritzia.
“I keep walking into Aritzia and petting this coat. I don’t necessarily need it, so I can’t really justify getting it for myself… Please someone just get it for me (in pink) so I can pet it in the comfort of my own home.” — Gabrielle Korn, Global Editor-In-Chief

Loie Hollowell, Drawing Study, price unknown, contact Pace Gallery for information
“Hi, yes, well, I’d very much like this drawing study by Loie Hollowell, because I like her work very much. Those curves, those colors, that… point! Give it to me. (Also, I like this Sun Mug a ton. It's made by Marian Bull, and is only $45, but is guaranteed to brighten my days, so it's worth every penny whoever gets it for me spends.)” — Kristin Iversen, Digital Deputy Editor

COME TEES, Send It Up Full Bleed Tee, $150, available at COME TEES.
“Sonya Sombreuil’s line of small batch hand-printed shirts are a wild juxtaposition of colors and narrative. A walking art piece with a punk aesthetic.” — Sarah Lutkenhaus, Design Director

& Other Stories, Leather Platform Lace-Up Boots, $235, available at & Other Stories.
"Please look at these boots. Just look at them. Have you ever seen a more perfect boot for traipsing around New York City in the winter and not giving a single fuck? I could step on snow! I could step on ice! I could step on men's souls!" — Bee Hill, Social Media Director
“Every influencer in the game has these right now and, what can I say, I’m a sucker for some #sponcon especially when it looks this luxe. Plus, I’ve been wanting to get into earrings more and these are a good entry point.” -Taylor Bryant, Web Editor
