As we gear up for the holiday season, we’re all about cozy moments, festive gatherings, and, of course, some serious holiday movie streaming. But let’s not forget the joy of giving and receiving fun gifts! This year, our editorial team is sharing their top gift picks to help inspire your holiday shopping. Here, ELLE Canada beauty director Katherine Lalancette shares the handpicked treasures on her wishlist. 

Piped Pajama Pant Set in Plum, Love & Lore

Price: $70


I have these cozy piped pajamas in black and get sad whenever they’re in the wash, so I’m hankering for a second pair. (How gorgeous is this plum colour?) They’re made of a sustainable viscose blend derived from certified renewable sources and feel like absolute heaven against skin.

Dolcevita Salad Servers in Green, Guzzini

Price: $30


With their curvy shape and bright hue, these salad servers (available in a rainbow of fun colourways) just make me smile. They’d make a perfect stocking stuffer, if you ask me.

Kalvin Coat in London Bouquet, Sézane

Price: $340


This quilted printed jacket from Sézane stole my heart from the moment I saw it. I can just imagine it paired with jeans and sneakers on weekend strolls through my neighbourhood, warm latte in hand.

The Backpack Tote in Wild Child, Béis

Price: $185


I’m expecting my first baby soon and have my eye on this diaper bag from Shay Mitchell’s line, Béis. It comes complete with a changing pad, stroller straps and bottle holder. Plus it’s super chic, which, let me tell you, seems to be a rarity in the diaper bag world.

Lovely Heart Signet Ring, Bluboho

Price: $298


I wear the same assortment of gold rings, each imbued with sentimental meaning, every single day. I think this heart-shaped signet ring, which I’d get engraved with my child’s first initial, would make the ideal addition to the bunch.

La Palette Madame, Les Filles en Rouje

Price: $69


I’ve had my eye on this lip palette for years now, so unwrapping it would make me very happy. It’s by Parisian it-girl Jeanne Damas, famed for her blotted lipstick, casually applied with the dab of a finger. The colours are stunning—there’s a cherry red, berry pink, dusty rose and tawny beige—and the finish promises to be creamy and nourishing.

Lavender Foaming Bath, L’Occitane

Price: $52


I am a bath person through and through. Nothing makes me happier than an evening soak with a thick cloud of lavender-scented bubbles filling the tub. It’s all thanks to this foaming bath from L’Occitane, exclusively made with lavender harvested in Haute-Provence.

Off-White Electric Kettle, Smeg

Price: $250


You know what pairs really well with a warm bath? A hot cup of tea. Entre the most stylish kettle of all time. It boils water at record speed and looks smashing on your kitchen counter.

The World According to Joan Didion by Evelyn McDonnell

Price: $33.50


Joan Didion is my favourite writer of all time, so I can’t wait to get my hands on this exploration of her life and work by Evelyn McDonnell. You know where I’d read it? In the bath.

Waffle Towel Bundle, One Wednesday

Price: $160


Okay, this is my last bath-related item, I swear. (Though, it’s just as suited to shower folks.) These towels from female-founded Vancouver brand One Wednesday, made from Turkish cotton, are the softest, dreamiest thing ever. They’re also super absorbent and look amazing in your bathroom with their waffled texture and fringed hem. The bundle includes two bath towels, two hand towels and two washcloths, but you can purchase a single towel for $60.

Musk Eau de Toilette Spray, Kiehl’s

Price: $62


I have a weakness for musk scents and this cult-classic from Kiehl’s is one of my forever go-tos. It’s believed to have been created in the 1920s, back when it was known as “Love Oil,” and was reintroduced by the brand in 1963. It remains just as alluring all these years later.

Roberta Ballerina in Black Suede, Maryam Nassir Zadeh

Price: $527


The Telegraph once hailed these as the perfect shoes and I can see why. They are the Roberta ballerina by designer Maryam Nassir Zadeh and they are said to offer the best of all worlds: the elegant lift of a (sensible block) heel, the relaxed appeal of a ballet flat and the comfort of buttery suede and an elasticized back. Some of my perennial style inspirations—makeup artist Violette and, again, the one and only Jeanne Damas—have all declared their love for the slip-on, wear-anywhere shoe and I’m dying to get in on the action.
