Editors' Picks Gift Guide: Senior Fashion Editor Violet Gaynor Shares Her Holiday Picks
For the holidays, we asked our editors to tell us what they’re coveting for Christmas—and what they’re planning on giving to all the special people in their life. Click through the gallery for some major seasonal inspiration from InStyle.com’s senior fashion editor, Violet Gaynor.
My Style-obsessed bestie
The whimsical feathers and sweet pink hue makes this ($398; katespade.com) the perfect gift for my best friend—she'd never buy it for herself but it suits her personality perfectly.
My Fantasy Gift
My love for rose gold knows no bounds. This delicate, yet distinct bracelet ($3,000; tiffany.com) would become part of my everyday jewelry uniform—I love that it's subtle enough for everyday but special enough for evening.
The Gift I'm hoping to get
This sweet little romper ($310; net-a-porter.com) will serve double-duty: I'll wear it as a beach coverup during my warm-weather winter getaway, and come summer, it will serve as my weekend uniform.
The perfect tee ($50; shopbop.com) to pair with a sleek pencil skirt. And for under $50, it's a guilt-free addition to a neutral winter wardrobe.
for a co-worker
While fresh flowers are always appreciated, I love the idea of this beautifully painted floral calendar ($22; riflepaperco.com)—it will brighten any desk!
for a child
I love dressing my one year-old daughter, Plum, in unique pieces that reflect her personality (sweet, strong, and playful) — this Makie vest ($96; tiinathestore.com) checks off all the boxes and is also a great layering piece for cold winter days in the park.
For the man in my life
While this may not be the most romantic gift for my husband, it marries together two important elements: style (me) and function (him). This sleek-looking speaker ($400; shopbop.com) will look cool on our bookshelf, and has high-quality sound.
Not only are these minimalist-meets-rustic tea towels ($35; tiinathestore.com) incredibly stylish, but they get softer with each washing.
A hostess gift
These hand-painted wood peg dolls ($160; etsy.com) are the perfect gift for friends with an appreciation for whimsical design. Simply provide a photo and Goose Grease will create custom dolls to match (they'll even include beloved pets!).
