On Monday, Kat kicked off our personal wish lists! Yes, we shared our annual gift guides with you in the magazine… but these are items we’re hoping to find under our own trees on the 25th.

If I’m being honest, I don’t usually want much when it comes to presents. I am happy with the traditions of the season and extra time with family. But, if told to choose, there are a few things I’d be thrilled to receive! First, I recently discovered Parks Project — an amazing company that sells clothing and accessories inspired by our national parks. And each purchase helps fund a project in our parks. Preserving our parks is more important than ever! I have my eye on this cool graphic sweatshirt and a small pin

I also love to request items I wouldn’t normally buy for myself. My friend Tina introduced me to this really cool brand called Matine, and I love their scalloped leather collection. This clutch would fit into my wardrobe perfectly! And these satin puff mules by Jenni Kayne are a splurge, but I really admire the whimsical yet sophisticated design. 

Of course, most of my time is honestly spent at home. What can I say, my job as Managing Editor keeps me busy… so I have to make time to relax! I would love to bring elements of a swanky hotel home, so a robe and bath salts from famed hotel-supplier, Gilchrist & Soames, would be divine. And to make it look extra pretty? A pillow from Kerri Rosenthal. 

Stay tuned for the final edition of our series on Friday!
