And with the holidays nearly here, ’tis the season for wrapping up some of the standout items on our nice lists.

Whether you’ve yet to start your gift shopping or called it a wrap early (and are treating yourself instead), read on for 25 excellent present picks, all tried and tested by our expert editors.

From buttery soft activewear to a royal-approved bracelet to the viral hair tool several staffers swear by for a perfect blowout, we’ve got gift inspiration for practically everyone on your list.


“I will never shut up about how much I love this hair tool! It’s so versatile and easy to use, and I get constant compliments on my hair whenever I use it.” — Alexandra D’Aluisio, Page Six Managing Editor

“Give the gift of a perfect blowout every time without having to go to the salon! I finally took the plunge and splurged on this viral hair tool recently. It’s half the price of the Dyson Airwrap and is so easy to use. I can’t believe I didn’t purchase this sooner!” — Kristin McNamara, New York Post Senior Director of Social Media and Audience Engagement

Tarte Lip Plump
Ulta Beauty

“This lip plumper has become my personality … I know it’s a crowd fave, and I certainly see why. This bad boy is on my Christmas list and in my purse. I think it’s the perfect tiny (but fierce) gift for a friend, sister or even mom.” — Julia Remillard, New York Post Senior Social Media Marketing Manager

“The TikTok-viral Tarte Marajuca Juicy Lip Balm really is as good as the influencers make it seem. I love the my-lips-but-better colors, the minty tingle and the surprisingly hydrating formula.” — Melissa Minton, Page Six Style Senior Reporter/Editor

A silver locket
Monica Rich Kossan

“I love the traditional charm and sentimentality of a locket. Monica Rich Kosann makes some truly beautiful modern versions, and you can head to the Locket Bar on the brand’s website to size and print out photos to put inside. I can’t imagine a better, more personal-feeling present.” — Elana Fishman, Page Six Style Editor

An angular black handbag

“I put the Aupen Nirvana bag on my wish list this year after seeing Taylor Swift and plenty of other celebs carrying it. I’ve been told it’s the perfect night-out bag, but as someone who isn’t into carrying big totes, I’ll probably use it daily as well!” — Kristin Contino, Page Six Style Writer

A monogrammed navy duffle bag
Mark & Graham

“I just ordered this chic men’s duffel bag for a special someone in my life, and I’m so excited to give it to him. It’s good quality, classic and you can even add their initials or monogram! I think giving someone an upgraded version of a practical gift is the best way to go.” — Caroline Blair, Page Six Reality TV Reporter

YSL Black Opium perfume
Ulta Beauty

“This is one of the only perfumes I’ve ever finished completely, so when I ran out recently I knew it had to go on my Christmas wish list. It’s the perfect mix of sweet, spicy and warm, and I love that it lasts forever. (I even smell it in my car days after I’ve worn it!)” — Alexandra D’Aluisio, Page Six Managing Editor

A Slip silk face mask

“When it comes to my sleep, I can’t afford to mess around — and becoming a sleep-mask girly has been life-changing. It’s soft and keeps out any excess room light perfectly. When I’m gifting, I think about things that could upgrade my favorite people’s lives and this is one of them.” — Julia Remillard, New York Post Senior Social Media Marketing Manager

A cup of grapefruit juice

“These cups are to die for! I make my iced coffee in them in the morning and they totally make me feel like I’m drinking an overpriced $10 latte from a trendy coffee shop. I like to pair it with cute glass straws ($10) to really get that main-character feel in the a.m.!” — Brooke Matalon, New York Post Social Media Marketing Manager

Gold hoop earrings
Stone & Strand

“For that friend or family member with the ever-evolving ear party, you can’t go wrong with earrings from Stone and Strand. These subtly shimmery hoops will make an impact whether your giftee has two piercings or 12 — and they’re under $100!” — Elana Fishman, Page Six Style Editor

An eyeshadow palatte
Pat McGrath Labs

“When it comes to eyeshadow, no one’s doing it like Pat McGrath. The celeb-loved makeup artist is among the best in the business for a reason, and I’m obsessed with the long-lasting hues in her Mothership palettes — an excellent gift for any beauty lover. Each comes with several standout shimmery shades, too. I can’t wait to use mine to add some sparkle to a New Year’s Eve eye look.” — Hannah Southwick, Page Six Commerce Writer/Reporter

A gold bangle bracelet
Saks Fifth Avenue

“I received one of the Kate Middleton-approved bangles from Halcyon Days as a gift a few years ago and it’s the perfect go-with-everything style. I saw the more petite hammered version when I was in London this spring and really liked the style — hopefully Santa will bring one this year.” — Kristin Contino, Page Six Style Writer

A model in green and white striped PJs

“I have no words for how obsessed I am with these Show Me Your Mumu holiday-inspired striped pajama sets. I’ve put the green set on my holiday gift list, but the red is also so chic. I just love how they’re both festive but also something you can wear throughout the year!” — Caroline Blair, Page Six Reality TV Reporter

Red rainboots

“The Torrent Chelsea boot by Sperry is sure to make a great Christmas gift for the woman in your life who likes to be stylish, even in the rain.” — Tashara Jones, Page Six Reporter

A double-ended brow pencil and brush
Sania’s Brow Bar/Revolve

“As photos of my previously over-tweezed brows have taught me, brow care just might be the most important part of my beauty routine. Sania’s Brow Bar has helped transform my brows, and I use this celeb-loved pencil and brush every day to keep them in tip-top shape at home. The product glides on like a dream, and I can’t wait to slip one into my mom’s stocking this year!” — Hannah Southwick, Page Six Commerce Writer/Reporter

A model in a pink bra
Daily Drills

“I’m currently obsessing over Daily Drills’ fun, colorful activewear drops and buttery soft fabrics — so this sports bra-and-bike shorts ($75) set was an easy pick for what I’ll be gifting my best friend this holiday season. You can’t get much better than the color, which would actually motivate me to get moving. I’m beyond excited to spoil my bestie with this ‘fit!” — Kelly Laske, Page Six Social Media Editor

The pink "Oh My Gosh I Love Your Shoes" by Sophia Webster book cover

“Your favorite shoe lover will flip for this cheery, colorful new coffee table book by Sophia Webster, whose whimsical heels have been worn by the likes of Taylor Swift, Beyoncé and Michelle Obama. It’s packed with stunning sketches and the stories behind some of the British designer’s most iconic creations, from the butterfly-inspired Chiara shoe to the strappy Lacey sandal.” — Elana Fishman, Page Six Style Editor

A diamond ring
Ring Concierrge

“A little sparkle is always welcome during the holidays! This ring is super-versatile and looks perfect on its own or in a stack.” — Kristin McNamara, New York Post Senior Director of Social Media and Audience Engagement

A set of books

“Reading is my favorite thing to do outside of work, and sharing that joy with my friends is so fun. So why not get them one of these insanely unique and cool book-club boxes? The best part is that it’s a gift that lasts them for a while — and they can keep ordering monthly if they end up loving the box.” — Julia Remillard, New York Post Senior Social Media Marketing Manager

Black oval sunglasses

“There’s a reason why nearly every celebrity — Gigi Hadid, Olivia Rodrigo, Kendall Jenner, Hailey Bieber, Selena Gomez — owns at least one pair of these sunglasses. The oval shape is flattering on every face and will suit anyone you’re gifting.” — Melissa Minton, Page Six Style Senior Reporter/Editor

A Pro Lash lash set
Pro Lash

“Every woman loves a lash set, and Pro Lash offers such a variety of styles — from natural to mega-voluminous to classic, luxe and wispy — that it’s too hard to pick just one. Your girl will be grateful for any option you choose to fit her style.” — Tashara Jones, Page Six Reporter

A gray blanket wrapped with ribbon

“Barefoot Dreams blankets are quite literally the blankets of my dreams. All their products are buttery soft, have an upscale look and feel, and are the perfect cozy gift to give to anyone!” — Brooke Matalon, New York Post Social Media Marketing Manager

A model in a crewneck sweatshirt
VS Pink

“Victoria’s Secret makes great cozy clothing. I’ve been wearing a version of this oh-so-soft crewneck for years, and it’s still one of my favorite sweatshirts to reach for when I get home.” — Hannah Southwick, Page Six Commerce Writer/Reporter

A model in a flannel and denim jacket

“Mavi puts a different twist on denim jackets when it comes to both style and print. What better way to express that love when she opens that box on Christmas Day?” — Tashara Jones, Page Six Reporter

A black suede heel
Stuart Weitzman

Four pastel sweatshirts
Klein Designs

“I love the idea of customizable anything as it makes a present extra special. Klein Designs offers pre-made embroidered clothing as well as the option to choose from their own symbols — or you can even send a photo or description of something totally unique and bring your own materials to be embellished. I plan to hit up their NYC studio to workshop ideas.” — Melissa Minton, Page Six Style Senior Reporter/Editor
