I love holiday shopping and tend to start early each year because I’m just so excited. So after recently filling my online shopping carts with gifts for my daughter, family members, and close friends, I gleefully checked each name off my list. Then, my husband came over and asked, “But what’s on your wishlist this season?” 

I had to pause because, honestly, I hadn’t even thought about that yet. In the midst of list-making and planning for others, I’d entirely forgotten about my own wishlist. Granted, it isn’t usually a high priority for me, but it touched me that my husband asked. 

As moms, we can spend so much of the holiday season taking care of others, but we’ve gotta look out for ourselves, too. So, our editors took time to think about what they most wanted during this season of giving and we’re here to share that list with you. 

Take a look at their most wished-for items below—are any of them on your wishlist, too?

Sijo Eucalyptus Long-Sleeve Top

Is it possible to have too many comfy loungewear items? I think not. But after working from home for nearly two years, my athleisure could use an upgrade. Enter this sustainably-sourced, super-soft top (and matching joggers below). —Kathy Sisson, Assistant Managing Editor

Sijo Eucalyptus Jogger Pants

Let's be honest, joggers have replaced my leggings most days. Their extra give and extra comfort have been a welcomed treat of extra time at home. And this pair of pretty rose-colored joggers are on my wishlist this year.

Plus, if you've ever wondered where your clothes come from before they arrive at your door, we love how transparent this brand is at how they source and make their products. —Kathy Sisson, Assistant Managing Editor

Acrylic Tray for Stationary Bikes

With a baby and a toddler, finding the time to stay active has been truly impossible. I’ve never struggled this much to work out or to even go for a walk, so I’m asking for this tray for my Peloton so I can do work while getting in some light movement. Fellow teammate Ally recommended it to me! —Amanda Shapin Michelson, Senior Manager of Brand Partnerships

True Botanicals

Chebula Anti-Aging Serum

My motto during the holidays is to ask for items that would be so fun to have but that I might not buy myself. I have been a big fan of True Botanicals for years and have three of their items on my list this year. At age 33, I know how important it is to take care of my skin and my results with this brand have always been far superior than most other products. —Ally Pagar-Wolf, Chief of Sales & Marketing

Large Initial Necklace

I have rewatched Schitt’s Creek too many times to count and I have always admired Alexis's large “A” necklace. I want a similar one with my large “C” to channel “a little bit Alexis!” —Carmen Garcia-Shushtari, Contributing Writer

available in gold and silver



My favorite wristlet broke, and I've been hunting for a new one since. This Coach option is just what I'm looking for, and I fell in love with its beautiful green color. When I need my credit cards to run a quick errand, a wristlet is so easy to throw on and carry with two rambunctious kids. —Melissa Guida-Richards, Contributing Writer

quilted jacket

Quilted Puffer Shirt-Jacket

I am full steam ahead on the shacket trend and added this down version from J.Crew to my list this year. In my cold New England climate, this will be perfect for playing with the kids, school drop-off, and regular daily life! —Ally Pagar-Wolf, Chief of Sales & Marketing

ugg slippers

UGG Ultra Mini Classic Boot

I’ve been an UGG fan for a decade (I’ll never let them go!) and have worn several different styles over the years—but these are my #1 wishlist item this year. I love the easy-to-throw-on nature of these ankle-height boots to keep me warm and looking cute this winter. I plan to wear them all my go-to outfits AKA jeans, leggings, joggers, etc. —Julia Birkinbine Poulter, Managing Editor

Always Pan

The time has come for me to finally replace some old pans and the Always Pan from Our Place is calling my name. Its versatility and cool design will give me some much-needed extra storage space in my kitchen. I especially love the non-stick ceramic coating and all the fun colors they come in! —Kathie Baptista, Graphic Designer

travel calendar
Rifle Paper Co.

Wall Calendar

I’m a long-time Rifle Paper Co. fan and my home office is just begging for this calendar, especially after feeling so travel-starved since the pandemic. I also love that I could frame the pretty Rifle Paper prints with my favorite destinations after the month has passed. —Kathy Sisson, Assistant Managing Editor

floor mat
Legendary Roots

Bless This Home Doormat

I’ll be moving into a new place soon and I’ve been thinking of the ways I want to decorate it differently. Near the top of my list? An eye-catching doormat to put in front of the entryway. —Jasmine Williams, Contributing Writer

available in blush and black

solo stove
Solo Stove

Bonfire Firepit

I love the idea of being outside during chilly winter nights, but I’m also a big wimp and am always cold. I’m asking for a firepit so we can host cozy outdoor hangouts year round.

Every year when January comes around, I crave a reset. Months of gatherings get me feeling sluggish and so an easy way to stock up on healthy greens is exactly what I want to set up before then. —Roberta Correia, Editor-in-Chief

Brooklyn Sweatshirt

Cozy crewneck sweatshirts have been my go-to uniform for the last year. This limited edition "Brooklyn" one is the perfect way to show off my love for my neighborhood! —Roberta Correia, Editor-in-chief
