My Christmas Wish List: 20 Gifts I’m Asking For This Year

Every year once I’m finished with my holiday shopping I create my Christmas wish list to make it easier on my friends and family. I’m hard to shop for because I like specific labels and particular pieces. As I was working on A Girl in LA’s annual gift guides, I came across so many things I fell in love with. From clothing, to jewelry, to items for my apartment. These are the top 20 gifts I’m asking for this Christmas.

My Christmas wish list

Doheny Blouse

Sanctuary
$89

This reminds me of something Blair Waldorf would wear. The high neckline, the sheer sleeves, and the elegant flower print make it the ideal silhouette. It would look great combined with faux leather, or deconstructed jeans and high heels.

Star-Print Leather Boxing Gloves

Everlast
$200

Boxing is something I’d love to incorporate into my workout routine. It’s such an empowering sport for women, and I love how these gloves signify that. Years ago I came across a similar pair that were featured on The Coveteur and I never forgot them.

Tailored Snap Track Pant

Lovers + Friends
$138

Another trend I’m loving are track pants. I almost wish I didn’t get rid of mine from years ago. I like how these are tailored so they can be dressed up and worn with stilettos rather than look like a gym pant.

Balloon Dog Bank

Dormify 
$49

I added this dog balloon piggy bank to my wish list because it was inspired by Jeff Koons Celebration series. I’m a tremendous fan of his artwork and his exhibit is one of my favorites when I visit The Broad.

Rolling Stones Color Tongue Crew Tee

Madeworn x Revolve 
$161, $97

I could never have enough concert tees; my closet is filled with them. I pair them with denim shorts, faux leather pants, or if they’re long enough, I’ll wear them as a dress with thigh-high boots. This Madeworn, Rolling Stones tee would be an ideal addition to my wardrobe. I’m a huge fan of the rock n roll band, and I love the colorful logo and the deconstruction of this tee!

15 Minute Vegan By Katy Beskow

Urban Outfitters
$22.99

I’m a pescatarian (I can’t give up sushi), but I love cooking vegan dishes. There are over 100 recipes in this cookbook and everything can be prepared in 15 minutes. It would be useful when I get back from the gym at night and I don’t feel like making a meal from scratch.

Charlotte Sequin Cami

About Us 
$44

I like anything with sequins and this is my favorite shade of pink. It would look stunning paired with black moto leggings for when I head out to a bar or nightclub.

Sweet Yo’Self Lip Balm + Gloss

Glossy Pops
$18

This eye-catching gloss and balm duo would be perfect to toss in my purse for my always chapped lips!

Yvonne Pant

House of Harlow 1960 x Revolve
$158, $95

Lately, I’ve been longing for a pair of wide leg pants. I love the multicolored stripes, the unique waistline, and the cuffs on the bottom of them. They could be dressed up with heels and a bodysuit, or dressed down with sandals and a cami for a day at the coast.

Avery Crossbody Bag

Rebecca Minkoff
$175

Last year my mom bought me a studded Bendels handbag but sadly, it broke. Since then I’ve been searching for a small black crossbody that's a similar size. I asked my mom to give me this as an early Christmas present so I can take it with me to New York City.

Box Logo Hoodie

Opening Ceremony
$150

This Opening Ceremony hoodie is what I want the most this year. I plan on styling it with leggings, or with thigh-high boots. It‘s just a basic sweatshirt, but the logo makes it a statement piece. I recently purchased the Corduroy Varsity Jacket and I’ve become obsessed with the label ever since.

Boston Cocktail Shaker Set

Vino Bravo
$52

I’m in the process of updating my bar cart from silver to gold so this sleek cocktail shaker set would be perfect.

721 Skinny Jeans in Rugged Indigo

Levi’s
$98

I’ve lost count of the number of deconstructed jeans I own; skinny, boyfriend and various colors. Deconstructed indigo is the one denim style not in my closet so these would be a perfect addition to my collection.  

Pure Got It Bad Ankle Boots

Dollskill
$45

I’ve wanted a pair of white booties for a while now, specifically ones with cut-outs. But since I’m heading to New York City in December, that wouldn’t work. Instead, I put these vegan leather booties on my wish list.

Wave Kaa Cutout Tee

ALLSAINTS
$90

Right now I’m really into wearing oversized shirts. I like how this one features cutout details on the sleeves and I love the trendy snakeskin print.

Styling For Instagram

Urban Outfitters
$22

I’ve been so busy this year, I’ve been neglecting both my personal and A Girl in LA’s Instagram accounts. One of my New Year’s Resolutions is start to creating content more frequently. Styling for Instagram is by the Conde Nast photographer Leela Cyd, and features layout inspiration and advice—it would give me the motivation I need to get back into the Insta game.

Night Light Candle

Kai
$26

During the winter when it gets dark early, there's nothing like opening a book, lighting a candle, and getting lost in the story. This past year I have had little time to read, so I’m making one of my New Year’s resolutions to get back into it. I’m hoping this candle will inspire me to do so.

Star Y Necklace

Ettika
$60

I’m really into “Y” necklaces right now, and this elegant lariat chain is so beautiful. The glass crystals and the star make it the optimal statement piece. It would look excellent styled with a solid shirt to add some sparkle.

Kiera High-Rise Hook-and-Eye Skinny Jeans

Pistola
$108, $87

I have so many pairs of black skinny jeans but I love the hook-and-eye closures on these, which gives them a punk vibe. Also, my favorite pair of jeans are by Pistola so I’m confident these would be a perfect fit.

Fantasy Heart-Shaped Foundation

Docolor
$9

This is the cutest brush I’ve ever seen! Instead of using it to apply foundation, I‘d love to display it with my cosmetics. It‘s too adorable to get makeup all over it.
