What 5 Fashion Editors Want For the Holidays — And No, It Isn't Clothes

Gift giving is probably the number one source of stress during the holiday season. Trying to figure out what to get everyone on your list in and of itself can cause a panic attack, but we all have that one person who stumps us every year. You know, the person you have absolutely no clue what to gift. I came to the realization that my sister and I are those people in our family.

With both of us working in fashion, our parents always stressed about finding a gift. We used to make very detailed list (like, seriously, an Excel spreadsheet) of what we wanted which worked out well for a while but then there came the problems: What happens if it's sold out?! Or not in the right color?! Or only available in another size?! Those minor problems ball up and evolve into, “OMG what do I get her now?!”

We realized that its just easier for us to get clothes for ourselves then have our parents try to buy us things in the midst of peak holiday season. So now the question is, with clothes off the table, what do I want? What does anyone who loves fashion want for the holidays? I asked some industry experts to weigh in and share what was on their list for this holiday season — hopefully it helps you shop for the style lover in your life too.
