‘Tis the season for lusting after literally everything we see. (Do our dogs need designer cashmere sweaters? Yes they do!) What? The discounts this time of year are always too good to pass up. We asked the Girlboss team—who have impeccable taste, btw—what they’ve got on their holiday wish lists to help you check everyone off of your list (yourself included… cause duh). From funky candles, to soft-as-a-cloud slippers, and self-care essentials, what’s not to love? These holiday gift ideas are A1.
“I have a pair of these already, but the fluff is worn out from years of well-loved wear. The pink color is also a fun surprise from the classic chestnut. I think loungewear is a great holiday gift—plus, the recipient will think about you every time they wear them.”
“Words don’t do this cheeky candle justice. Made by homeware geniuses Areaware in collaboration with Brooklyn’s Talbot & Yoon, this candle was sold out for most of the summer, so a restock is very exciting indeed. As it burns, the Goober turns in on itself and looks like a glowing pastel orb. So precious!”
“I’ve been loving the high-rise flared pant trend (I was a big fan in the ‘00s as well)! They’re so comfortable, flattering, and functional. I currently only own yoga leggings, but would love to reintroduce a pair of these into my WFH rotation.”
“I am a huge fan of this brand and have been using the Radiance Face Serum for almost two years. Now that I’ve mastered taking care of my skin, I would love to do the same with my body and long hair… Also, I tend to lose my hair ties often—you can ask my boyfriend.”

“I’ve had my eyes on anything Skims for forever (I’ve been influenced, okay?) and although I think their slip dresses are absolutely gorgeous, this is likely the most practical for me. I work from home, so I know I would live in this set and be able to dress it up for calls, but obviously be comfy as ever.”

“For the coffee drinkers out there (myself included), it really is that sip in the morning that gets you going! I’m a huge fan of Vietnamese coffee, so I could always use a refill (or two). This company is also female and BIPOC founded and sustainably sourced, so I’m excited to share this brand with the world.”
“This is the perfect simple, elegant crossbody purse—and it comes in a bunch of cute colors! The brand creates minimalist purses and wallets that are eco-friendly, made from vegan leather, and incredibly luxurious (without the crazy $$$). It’s also female-founded with an all-female leadership team and a portion of their profits go to The Soular Backpack (a charity initiative the founder created) to provide backpacks with a built-in solar panel to children in East Africa, so they have light to do their schoolwork.”
“To say I’m obsessed with the sweater vest trend would be an understatement (thank you for being my muse, Harry Styles). I bought a plain beige one over the summer and I wear it approx. 3 times a week (it gets washed, dw), so I would love to treat myself to a more colorful, ‘out there’ version that could take me into the spring. How sweet is the little scalloped hem?”

“Have I already begun dropping hints to my boyfriend that this is what I want for my holiday gift this year? Yes. Will I love whatever he gets me, but also still be a little disappointed if it’s not this carry-all? Also yes.
I love a good travel bag, however this one takes the cake for 1) looking sleek and 2) having features that really speak to an on-the-go lifestyle. Oh and did I mention Shay Mitchell designed it? The separate bottom compartment for storing shoes is a germaphobe’s dream, and the zipper pocket that converts into a sleeve to slip over your luggage handle is *chef’s kiss*”
