Some of us are lugging suitcases stuffed with presents, others are sending holiday care packages by mail, and the rest are arranging les cadeaux to be unwrapped chez nous. Here, five editors share what they’ve ordered for the holidays so far, and their picks are just so good because—well, you’ll see. Friends of editors: Read no further. Everyone else: Take notes.

PS: If, after reading, you’re still stumped, email [email protected]—we’ve got sure-to-please suggestions for everyone you’ve yet to check off your list.

For my best friend:

“She carries totes every day—small, big, Hermès, L.L.Bean, but always a tote. She also works in fashion, but Rue de Verneuil is a brand I can surprise her with. I know she will be toting this cutie around NYC the day after Christmas.”

For Sam:

“My husband is extremely low-maintenance. The man hardly shops for himself, meaning it’s on me to make sure his knock-around clothes get an annual refresh. Behold: the fanciest, softest, best-quality sweats out there.”

“This nifty gadget is like if a gentler Theragun and a dry brush had a baby. This is good, because maybe now I’ll get back the Theragun and dry brush he stole from me.”

For Kitt (almost two):

“Kitt gets to enjoy what I hope is my not-entirely-unpleasant rendition of ‘Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star’ every night before bed, so this is fitting wall décor. It’s also a great opportunity to support The Little Market’s efforts to provide artisans—in this case, those living in rural parts of The Philippines—with living wages and skill development.”

For Sonny (almost five):

“He always gravitates toward the guitar we have sitting out in the living room, and his curiosity has long since turned into clumsy plucking, which we wholeheartedly encourage. Loog guitars are designed to take that curiosity to the next level. They’re really cool-looking, too.”

For my mom:

“My mom and I share a love of caviar. For New Year’s Eve—a huge deal in my family—I plan on stocking up on all the fixings (kettle chips, teeny pancakes, super fancy crème fraîche) and bringing out fifty grams of ROE’s sustainably farmed, richly flavorful goodness.”

“I already own this gorgeous Carmen Ellis piece. And as soon as my mom sets foot in our house when she visits over the holidays, this will be the second thing she’ll gush over (her grandbabies will be the first). Wouldn’t it be a sweet surprise for her to fly home to this beauty waiting at her doorstep?”

For my mom:

“Even if your mom is a backpacking, Masters-swimming eighty-year-old tomboy like mine, she will love the unbelievable comfort (the flowy silk is just next-level, and if you’re chilly, slip on a cashmere cardigan for even more tactile delight) and the dress-it-up-or-down glamour of a Natalie Martin sundress.”
