Esra's Holiday Wish List

Esra's Holiday Wish List

By Emily Raese

Hanukkah begins this week and we're only 14 days away from Christmas! It's safe to say that holiday shopping is in full swing. With so many gifts to buy, it can be hard to keep your purchases fresh and exciting. So, we asked a few of our designers to put together their own wish lists for this holiday season. Whether you're buying for a design-obsessed best friend or your acquaintance from work, this week's wish lists are sure to inspire! Check back in every day this week for new wish lists and, on Friday, a gift giving guide from our very own CEO and giftologist, Cheryl!

Here are Esra's picks for this holiday season!

1. Madewell's Crushed Velvet Slip Dress: $158

I just love the texture and color of this dress. It's perfect for a cocktail party or a night on the town. Pair it with chunky heels and a fabulous statement necklace, and you'll have an effortlessly chic ensemble. Love it. 

2. 2018 Planner: $39.95

Well crafted paper goods are a weakness of mine. With the new year coming, it's time for me to get a new planner! Plus, the color of this planner is gorgeous.

3. Rifle Paper Company Art PrintStarting at $24

My family is from Turkey so this print feels particularly special to me. It brings a bit of my family history into my home. It's an art print based on a gouache painting by Anna Bond, who's done similar paintings for other cities like Paris and London. I love her fresh take on the classic map print. 

4. Acapulco Chair: $875 

These chairs are to die for. I'd put these in my kitchen, where they could be bathed in natural light. They make great statement pieces and as a pair, they'd be perfect for a coffee nook where I could share a cup with a friend. 

5. Beauty Counter Charcoal Cleansing Bar$24

In 2018, I'd like to take better care of myself and my skin. Beauty Counter is an all natural beauty brand. I think I'll start my all natural skin care routine with this cleansing bar. 

6. The Sabina Throw Pillow: $520

The pattern of this pillow is gorgeous. Its bold lines and angular pattern make it the perfect addition to a boho living room. 

7. Brooklyn Tote by Mark & Graham: $225

I love this tote's clean, modern take on a classic cheque pattern. It's big enough to carry everything I need, but retains a high-fashion feel. Plus, you can get it monogrammed. 

8. Artifact Uprising Photo Box: $50

I'm a new mom so I have so many photos on my phone of my little boy. I'd like to get better at displaying family photos in my house. This photo box is such an easy and chic way to do that!
