This week’s gift guide was such a joy for me to put together. One of the greatest pleasures I’ve had thanks to this little blog is to meet a group of incredibly talented, fun, creative and lovely women who also hang on this thing we call the internet. As important as it is to gift others at this time of year (and as fun as it’s been to compile gift guides for those on your lists!), there’s no doubt this season brings out longer wish lists for us bloggers as we search the web high and low to bring gift ideas to life.

So with that, I wanted to share this year’s Bloggers’ Picks gift guide – composed of the pieces some of my favorite bloggers have their eyes on for this holiday season and I have to admit, I’d take one of each in a heartbeat. Thanks to these seriously stellar ladies for being a part of this!

Sam, Could I Have That?Equipment Pajama set“One thing I love to do during the holidays is slip into my PJs, get cozy by the fire, have a hot cup of coco and watch a classic Christmas flick. Naturally, stylish PJs are a must. I’m coveting this star print set from Equipment.”

Alicia, Cheetah is the New BlackiPad Air“For Christmas this year I’m asking for an iPad… so I don’t have to keep stealing my guy’s! Also, fun fact: I actually have a few girly iPad cases that I’ll put on his when I’m using it. Ha!”

Jen, Her Waise Choice: Tom Ford Lip Color. “This is the first year that I’ve really gotten into wearing lipstick on a daily basis, and my collection is slowly but steadily growing. The gorgeous packaging on Tom Ford lipsticks just seem like the ultimate little luxury.”

Liz, Sequins + StripesTory Burch Thea Zip Wallet. “Since 2014 is dedicated to getting my finances in order before getting married {no more shopping behind my fiance’s back!} a pretty new wallet would be just the motivation I need to keep my money in one place!”

Grace, Stripes & SequinsOlivia Von Halle pajamas“I am, admittedly, the girl who has everything but the one thing I never splurge on for myself is nice pajamas.  I’d love to find this pair, from Olivia Von Halle under my tree.  The satin is so luxe, and the bright green color really pops.”

Lacey, A Lacey PerspectiveBurberry Trench“There is nothing more classic than a Burberry trench coat. The perfect piece to chicly shield myself from the chilly DC weather, this camel cotton-twill version would be in my closet for the rest of my life. Here’s hoping Santa slips this iconic beauty under my tree.” 

Belle, Capitol Hill StyleHarry Josh Pro Dryer 2000“Like all of the women in my family, I am obsessed with my hair.  As a result, I have tried every blow dryer from the drugstore brands to the pricier salon models.  This Harry Josh blow-dryer promises rapid styling with minimal heat damage for higher-the-hair-the-closer-to-God volume.  Amen.”

Kat, With Love from Kat: Gucci Soho Disco Bag. “I’ve been on the hunt for a chic little black cross body bag and this is it.  I love the tassel detail and simplicity of the bag.  It’s perfect for running around the city in!”

Blair, Atlantic-PacificCuyana Travel Case Set“I love a little luxury- and I feel like this travel case is such a great price for the quality and bonus it can be monogrammed!”

Sara, Musings in FemininityProenza Schouler PS13“I’ve only dreamed about the PS13 since it came out in Fall 2012. I’m a very monogamous handbag lover – once I pick the right one, I’m good for life. I truly believe that this is my handbag soulmate. Maybe this will be the year we are finally together!”

Hallie, Corals + CognacsSoulcycle Gift Certificate“Classes are expensive, but hey, they’re cheaper than therapy!”

Taylor, Shut Up, I Love That Shirt On YouRay-Ban Clubmaster Classics“A pair of classic Ray-Ban ‘Clubmaster’ sunglasses is at the top of my wishlist this year purely because I’m obsessed with this timeless design and know that I’ll wear and love them forever.”

Jessica, Bows & Sequins: Kate Spade New York Smoking Flats. “It was a love-at-first-sight kind of thing when I saw these Kate Spade loafers! They’re covered in sequins and topped off with a bow. Could they be any more perfect for me? Pretty sure Deborah had me in mind when she made them.”
