My brother texted me a few days ago what I wanted for Christmas.
There was a time when I couldn’t have had too many clothes and gift certificates from my favorite stores. Now I struggle to give anyone ideas for what I want, because I feel like I have enough.
Honestly, the magical disappearance of my student loans and a million frequent flyer miles are the only two things I truly want for Christmas. But if I had to pick a few things for Santa to leave under the tree…
My favorite perfume
I’ve been using one from Diptyque lately, but Tocca’s Florence eau de parfum is my essential go-to.
An inspirational print
French Words on Instagram launched their an online store and I love their A-Z large print. I still need to frame my gold foil world map, but this would complement the modern, romantic traveler vibe in the bedroom.
Another phone charger
You can never have too many phone chargers. I love how this one from Urban Outfitters is disguised as a simple leather tassel… I just wish more phone chargers came with the outlet plug, which is especially convenient for train rides on Metro North.
Beyond basic earbuds
I’ve always wanted a pair of FRENDS headphones, but my lifestyle doesn’t require huge head gear. Earbuds with unique hardware detail are perfectly adequate for freelancing in peace at the local coffee shop.
A modern crossbody
Theory came out with the Transformer handbag line—it’s easy to customize your look by choosing a leather strap and different pouches made of sheepskin, suede or leather. I’d love to put my employee discount to use and buy this set as a Christmas gift for myself.
