Zia Pia Frantoio Galantino "Fantasia" Ceramic & Extra Virgin Olive Oil 

“Any foodie will appreciate a fancy bottle of EVOO during the holidays.” Best part? Once they’ve reached the end, they can turn this hand-painted ceramic jug into a decorative (and functional) piece of decor. It’s the perfect home for fresh or dried flowers.

Saie The Day-To-Night Box

“This gift set is a meet-cute of two of our favorite beauty brands — Saie and Slip. It's the perfect gift for any beauty lover on your list, whether they're a minimalist or love a full beat. Who can say no to a high-quality silk sleep mask and a new mascara?”

Grab a kit (or two)

T3 AireBrush Duo

“T3's AireBrush Duo won a 2022 Glamour Beauty Award, so it's only natural to add it to our give-or-get list this year. You'll love the interchangeable brush — and custom heat settings — that make it suitable for a variety of hair types.”

‘Tis the season to treat yourself

ANINE BING Zora Jacket

“Bomber jackets are one of the biggest fall trends this year, and this casual-but-cool piece is high on my wish list. It's the ultimate outfit topper.”
