The ELLE Canada editors reveal their dream holiday gifts.
Vanessa Craft, editor-in-chief
Canadian jeweller Myles Mindham is celebrating 25 years of making incredible pieces of wearable art. To commemorate the occasion he’s created the Woodland Magic collection, which is inspired by the fantastical forest motifs of his most treasured childhood stories. I’m putting this whimsical (and sizeable) diamond fairy ring on my wish list because, obviously.
Moon Fairies Diamond Flower Ring ($25,000), Mindham Fine Jewellery
All I want for Christmas is this beautiful “Fruit Looters” wallpaper by Timorous Beasties. And if it’s not too much to ask, the help of Santa’s elves to help install.
“Fruit Looters” wallpaper ($505), at timourousbeasties.com.
Katherine Flemming, health & beauty editor
There is nothing more satisfying than decapitating an unwieldy wick with this sleek trimmer.
Candle wick trimmer ($40), at dyptiqueparis.com.
Sarah Laing, culture editor
Cashmere, stripes, and a post-shortbread-cookie-frenzy-appropriate slouchy fit…is there any better combination to find under the tree?
“Varsity” sweater ($450 USD), at lalignenyc.com.
Carli Whitwell, special projects editor
I know we’re in polar vortex season, but my holiday plans involve me on a beach with a book. And I NEED a one-piece bathing suit as much as I’ll need that margarita.
Stella McCartney strapless swimsuit ($330), at matchesfashion.com.
Ciara Rickard, production editor
I’m in desperate need of new sunglasses as my current ones have taken a fair bit of abuse (they’ve been bumped, scratched, sat on etc.). These Victoria Beckham sunnies have that classic cat-eye shape I tend towards, and the two-tone gives them a cool update.
Victoria Beckham cat-eye acetate sunglasses ($500 USD), at net-a-porter.com.
Brian Fleming, associate art director
If I had this gorgeous shearling-lined biker jacket, I would pray for snow in the summer just so I could wear it year-round.
Shearling and leather biker jacket (3,795), at burberry.com.
Danielle Campbell, designer
Owning an Orla bag has long been a dream of mine. I love how the designer
s retro-inspired pieces feel classic and unique, so I’d have this olive green beauty by my side for years to come.
Embossed stems small Jeanette sling bag ($108 USD), at orlakiely.com.
Liz Guber, associate fashion editor
Someone needs to gift me this comically small bag, otherwise I’ll never justify owning a purse that fits less than a Whole Foods salad container.
Simon Miller Bonsai leather tote ($390 USD), at net-a-porter.com.
I’m really spreading Santas budget thin this year. Forget presents under the tree, I’d like to find this 40 year old scotch in my stocking Christmas morning so I can share it with family and friends. It’s my way of spreading the warm holiday spirit.
Glenfiddich 40-Year-Old Rare Collection Single Malt ($9,639.95), at select LCBO locations.
Erika David, editorial assistant
Could somebody with disposable income please get me these Acne Studios black Chelsea boots? They’re effortlessly cool and level up even the simplest of outfits.
“Jensen” leather boots ($560 USD), at acnestudios.com.
Kiera Spronk, fashion assistant
Since it’s a bit unreasonable to ask Santa for Rihanna’s entire wardrobe for Christmas, I’ll settle for these appropriately Baroque thigh-high boots she designed for her latest collab with Manolo Blahnik.
“The Dominique” black brocade thigh-high shearling boots ($2,985), at manoloblahnik.com.
Maryjane Peters, beauty assistant
I have been fantasizing about these #ExtraAF boots for basically a year but don’t have the guts to buy them for myself, let alone wear them in public. However… if these magically appeared under my tree on Christmas morning, I would just have to wear them right!? It would be rude not to.
