If you need some inspiration, take a peek at our holiday shopping guide, which is packed with goodies for everyone from your rocker pals to sporty snow bunnies to uptown gals (and don’t miss our corresponding grungy tale of holiday thievery). Need a few more suggestions? Over the last few days, we’ve been divulging what our editors are planning to gift, and hoping to get. Have a look at our final picks, below.

TIM BLANKS, EDITOR AT LARGE
To Get: The most subversive album of all time in a “super deluxe” forty-fifth anniversary box set? That’s so perverse that all I can say is gimme!
To Give: Give as you would get—someone will be unwrapping this camo-is-classic antidote to wrist-y flash by Nixon.
AMBER KALLOR, BEAUTY EDITOR
To Get: I was bugging out over this Fendi Peekaboo tote. Opening your bag to reveal yellow crocodile monster eyes against a black python backdrop makes pulling out your wallet that much more exciting.
To Give: For my co-worker and fellow cat lover, photo editor Nicola Kast, I’ll be purchasing this Karl Lagerfeld Choupette key fob. I initially spotted it at Colette during the Spring collections and knew it had her name written all over it.
BRITTANY ADAMS, ASSOCIATE FASHION EDITOR
To Get: It’s been a few years since I took running seriously, and I’ve had my eye on a pair of Nike featherweight Flyknits since I witnessed dozens of models wearing them between castings before the Spring shows. Regardless of whether the kicks inspire me to relive my track star glory days, they’ll look fly with jeans.
To Give: Clearly, I’m feeling a Nike moment. After undergoing a major back surgery this summer, my go-getter of a mother is finally returning to fighting form, and I love the idea of her being able to track her fitness progress with Nike’s sleek rose gold-detailed FuelBand, which picks up on and encourages both low-intensity exercise like walking and full-on workouts.
ERINN HERMSEN, ASSISTANT MANAGING EDITOR
To Get: Black booties are a staple for my winter wardrobe, and I seem to “need” a new pair every season. This year, I’m eyeing these Saint Laurent beauties that will go with almost everything in my closet.
To Give: My favorite gifts to give come with a personalized touch, and I love these monogrammed wine glasses for my best girlfriends. They’re the perfect addition to our frequent wine nights.
