Most Coveted is a new shopping series sharing our editors’ curation of the must-know items they can’t stop thinking about.
Festive season is most definitely here, and though it’s known as a time to cherish your loved ones, it’s also the dreaded gifting period. The overwhelming annual task of buying the perfect holiday gift always weighs heavily: You begin by looking for something that’s meaningful but exquisite, small but extravagant, unique but useful, and then more often than not, you end up choosing the easiest option.
However, this year, you’ve got me to help you out. I am your quintessential Type A personality: my closet is organized by color and season, my planner is prewritten, and a 10-step skincare routine is a given. So it comes as no surprise that I like to be the best gift giver there is, and I’ve had a ton of practice. Whether you’re looking for the best gift money can buy or something with sentimental value, below, I’ve got you covered with 30 gifts to wrap up for your loved ones this holiday season.
