As we hunt down gifts for you (the readers of BuzzFeed.com the website), we end up discovering a lot of things that we'd personally love to own. This post is filled with those things.

1. A splurge-worthy convection toaster oven that'll cook food quicker than your regular oven without turning your kitchen into a fiery inferno.

I never use the oven in my apartment because whenever I do, the entire kitchen heats up to a billion degrees. It's also incredibly old and slow to heat up. I put up with it because I need it to toast baguettes, bake sweet potatoes, and reheat pizza, but a good toaster oven can do all these things and more in half the time. This one is like the Mercedes-Benz of toaster ovens — it has a convection setting that can reduce cooking time by 30% and it gives you precise control over the cooking temperature. I know it's extra, but I just need it in my life, okay?! —Yi YangGet it from Amazon for $199 (available in two colors).

2. A classic and roomy leather tote for making you and all your shit look put together (if only on the outside).

For my first internship in NYC I bought the first professional-ish tote I could find from Zara so I could tote my laptop to and from the office every day, but I didn't like its awkwardly voluminous shape and since the internship ended, it's just been gathering dust in my closet. I never upgraded my tote and I *need* to be toting around this simple but sophisticated leather tote instead. It's effortlessly cool and goes with everything. Hello parents, are you looking at this right now? It'd be a great Christmas gift, thanks. —Sarah HanGet it from Nordstrom for $168 (available in 3 colors).

3. Glitter boots that are *not* too extra, no matter what anyone says.

These babies are the more wearable, affordable, and vegan versions of the glittery boots Chanel and YSL did this season. I will wear them with dresses, with jeans, with EVERYTHING! They'll instantly turn an outfit from drab to fab. And, okay, maybe they are extra, but guess what??? I can't hear your criticism over the sound of those heels clacking on the sidewalk as I strut down the street. —Katy HermanGet them from Zappos for $139 (available in sizes 6 to 10).

4. A sloth daily calendar so every day is the best day of your life.

Anyone who has known me for more than two minutes is aware that I love sloths. You know how most people say “love is not a big enough word” for their soulmates? For me, that’s reserved for my leetle sloths. So you can imagine that I already own quite a few sloth products — my desk looks like a shrine for them. But what could be better than a calendar? Each month I’ll be greeted with a new cherub, and maybe I’ll actually be motivated to organize my life. Like, maybe?? Tbd. Not important. But at the very least I’ll have something beautiful to gaze at every morning. I’m sure my desk mate isn’t becoming increasingly scared. —Emma McAnawGet it from Amazon for $11.31.

5. A flippable Belgian waffle maker for restaurant-quality, airy AF waffles at home (AKA you can spend all that saved brunch money on at-home mimosas).

amazon.com

Like Leslie Knope, I am a believer in waffles. Pancakes — go eff yourself. You're often dense and rubbery and you're hard to flip properly! But a light, airy waffle? It's a perfect food. It has BUILT-IN SAUCE RESERVOIRS. And this waffle maker has over 4,600 reviews — and it lit'rally flips over so you know it only turns out the fluffiest waffles. AND it stores vertically, making it the perfect tool for a teeny tiny Manhattan-sized kitchen. —Maitland Quitmeyer

Get it from Amazon or Jet for $39.90.

6. A pair of amazing chino pants tailored to be just as comfy as they are stylish.

These pants are the pants of my dreams. I have been searching for a pair of chino pants with a jogger-like tailor and these have the slouchy drop crotch and slim legs. I could wear them with long boots and the fit is relaxed in all the right places. They also have pockets. Pants without pockets are trash. —Francine HendricksonGet them from Wildfang for $99 (available in sizes S to 2XL).

7. A holiday candle that will fill your apartment and your heart with holiday cheer.

amazon.com

Will my heart grow three sizes this year? Maybe with this candle it will. —Jen Tonti

Get it from Amazon for $27.60.

8. The iconic wine glasses from Scandal.

I KNOW I will break them and that's why I haven't purchased them already, even though they were in the first season of the show (when I was still watching...sorry Shonda). They're so tall and seem like they'd fit perfectly in my hand as I'm sitting on my white sofa scheming. —Jess ProbusGet one from Crate & Barrel for $12.95.

9. Stuffed animals any child (or adult) would totally love.

Nordstrom

These furry little guys are definitely the stuffed animals you tell your normal stuffed animals not to worry about. They give me Beanie Baby collecting nostalgia. I just want them all! —Adrianna Licitra

Get them both from Nordstrom for $31 (the sloth) and $32.50 (the flamingo).

10. Linen sheets because your bed deserves beautiful clothes.

Last year, I bought my first set of (relatively) fancy sheets from Parachute, and now that I've proved to myself that I can be a responsible sheet-owner, I think I'm ready to take the next step: linen. Apparently, these are incredibly soft and breathable, so your bed won't dissolve in a queen-sized puddle of sweat. Yes and yes. —Jessie GaynorGet them from Parachute for $169+ (available in sizes full to California king and six colors).

11. The most extra LEGO Architecture kit you’ve ever seen of the Solomon Guggenheim Museum.

I do not identify as a LEGO Person—or at least I didn’t until I stumbled upon the most beautiful LEGO creation of my life on Amazon — a 744-piece Guggenheim Museum. This LEGO Architecture model is great for New Yorkers, Frank Lloyd Wright fans (the kit includes his famous rotunda), artists, bored children (over 12, the kit suggests), and also me (lol). —Colin GorensteinGet it from Amazon for $71.99 (check out other LEGO Architecture kits here).

12. A trench coat that will make you feel like a model walking down Fifth Avenue (without the Fifth Avenue price).

Asos

Honestly, I'm not even sure that I can pull off a trench coat, but this one makes me want to at least try. Plus, by going with a darker color, I feel like I can avoid the flasher association that trench coats often have! —Adam Davis

Get it from Asos for $95 (available in sizes XS to L).

13. The most luxurious pair of Converse Chucks you'll ever encounter (velvet! studs!).

At one point in Black Swan, Nina (Natalie Portman) says, "So prettyyyyyyyy!" in a very specific way. I say it in my head in the exact same way as I look at these. —Mallory McInnis Get a pair from Nike for $95 (available in 3 colors and sizes 5 to 11).

14. A Nintendo Switch (because Mario Odyssey looks really fun).

Nintendo

After being burned by Wii U (a flawed console with very few good games besides Breath of the Wild), I vowed not to impulsively buy the next Nintendo console. I was planning on waiting for a good chunk of games to come out, but the hype around Mario Odyssey is giving me serious FOMO. Not to mention that the new controllers make playing with friends super easy — no more searching the house for AA batteries for the Wii controllers every time we want to play Mario Kart. —Bek O'Connell

Get it from Amazon for $299.99.

15. A super warm teddy coat to wear with not-so-warm party outfits. A cold night out on the town will actually be tolerable — maybe even enjoyable — when wrapped in this.

There's nothing I love more than winter outerwear, and I've been hoping to add a teddy coat to my collection. This one is a simple and chic version that'll go with absolutely everything and always be in style. It's actually fairly affordable (considering how thick it is) and it'll be a great alternative to my trusty down puffer jacket. —Yi YangGet it from H&M for $79.99 (available in two colors and sizes S-L).

16. Literally anything from Pat McGrath Labs, *the* most sought-out brand for MINDBLOWINGLY REGAL AND SPARKLY makeup lewks (just look and ~try~ not to drool).

Sephora

I truly mean "literally anything" from the line, but if we were to get into specifics: MatteTrance Lipstick in "McMenamy 200" and the Subversive Mothership III Eyeshadow Palette. I have yet to find my perfect burgundy and McMenamy 200 is seriously calling my name. Such a deep, rich color — and the packaging is so damn luxurious. I fall in love with eyeshadow palettes on the daily, but I can ~actually~ see myself wearing ~every~ color of this palette (as both eyeshadow and eyeliner, actually). Plus, the name is 💯. —Sarah Han

17. A box of cookies to fill your cookie jar and your stomach!

The way to this girl's heart is definitely through her stomach. Forget flowers and jewelry, give me a box of cookies and I'm yours! Actually, I'll take all three. I really hope my boyfriend is reading this! —Adrianna LicitraGet them from Harry & David for $29.99.

18. An Away "bigger" carry-on bag with a gold monogram, so even when you're shoved into the last row in coach (and can hear every flush of the airplane toilet), you still feel like you're traveling in style.

awaytravel.com

Airplane travel is low-key the worst. To avoid those pesky fees, you have to pack a week's worth of clothing into a carry-on and hasten to get in line at the gate to make sure your carry-on even makes it into the overhead storage! I'm a pretty light packer, but I always want to maximize my outfits-per-cubic-inch-of-suitcase ratio. That makes this "bigger" carry-on by Away the perfect option. You can easily fit a week's worth of outfits. Right in a carry-on! The sturdy shell will stay scratch-free through thick and thin (peep the over 1,000 reviews to see) and protect your precious belongings inside. And the bright color options (I'm loving the pink) make it easy to spot in the overhead bin. Plus, I love fancy shit, and that includes having everything monogrammed where possible, so this gold lettering would make it evennnn better. Did I mention it has a built-in battery and charging port for your smartphone? I know. Yes, it's pretty pricey, but if it makes flying that much less painful — sign me up. —Maitland Quitmeyer

Get it from Away for $295.

19. A book filled with photos of severely loved/worn down children's toys that adults kept their entire life. It'll feed your sentimental (and slightly creepy) soul.

When I was two I had a big stuffed dog named, get this, "Big Dog" and I loved him more than I loved most of my siblings (sorry, CJ). This book is a nostalgic look on the treasured stuffed animals who have lived their little inanimate lives alongside the children-turned-adults who love them. Each doll has a photo, name, and story I couldn't help but fall in love with... also, 20+ year old dolls look creepy AF, so if that's your thing, this is also your book. —Mal MowerGet it from Amazon for $14.29, Barnes & Noble for $14.79, or from a local bookseller through Indiebound here.

20. A voluminous scarf blouse that is ready to be the most extra shirt you will ever own.

I want this shirt because just look at it, it's a work of art. If I wore it, I would feel like a Pokémon that reached a level of evolution that I did not know existed. I would wear this shirt and everyone would become my enemy so I would have hordes of enemies to flaunt in front of. I would become a person who carries a handkerchief, so I don't ruin the shirt with my forever flowing tears of joy. I will never own this shirt, because it is almost $300, but it is the one I dream about every day. —Francine HendricksonGet it from Nordstrom for $295 (available in sizes XS to L).

21. A coffin portable charger to match a coffin phone case.

I just upgraded to a new phone (only because my old phone stopped taking voice calls) and ordered this glorious coffin case to fit it. Naturally, I need the charger to match! Though I love the macabre, I detest a dead phone battery. My friend Aaron is concerned that coffin-shaped phone accessories will scare away first dates. But I'm doing just fine in that department already. —Elizabeth LillyGet it from Valfré for $40.

22. A tote that's a decent substitute for the doggo of your dreams.

Everything about this bag makes me happy--from the Boston Terrier (which I'm gonna pretend is a Frenchie) to the sunny color to the heart-shaped tag to the striped lining. And it's the perfect size for me, since I basically like to carry my whole life with me at all times. —Katy HermanGet it from Macy's for $54.

23. A pair of ruffled heels to pretend you're starting the new year by putting your best foot forward. Emphasis on pretend.

Listen, I’ll be the first to admit that heels are in no way practical. I usually spend the entire winter season switching off between my sneakers and Doc Martens, BUT sometimes you see a gorgeous pair of heels and suddenly you’re Carrie Bradshaw! Toes be damned! Though I have wide feet, these still look like they’d be totally fine to wear to a holiday party, pain-free. Would I brave a night of stilettos? N-o. But block heels are my friend, and these ruffles are calling my name. And yes, ok, these pretty shoes cost an even prettier penny, but they’re one-of-a-kind and sometimes a person’s gotta splurge. Plus, you can wear them with anything. I could literally wear these with the same black jeans that I wear every day to easily go from casual to chic. And that means little effort on my end. So win, win, win, times 1000. —Emma McAnawGet them from Anthropologie for $148 (available in sizes 6 to 7).

24. A luxurious and versatile cashmere wrap that's 100% worth the investment.

Bloomingdale's

Cashmere is the queen of all fabrics — it's impossibly soft, warm, and long-lasting. While cashmere sweaters are wonderful, a wrap is even more versatile. You can start using it in the fall, draped over a blouse or dress, and then as a voluminous scarf in the winter. It's always great for formal dinners and parties when you don't have a jacket idea. Basically, it's the ultimate "treat yo self" item. —Yi Yang

Get it from Bloomingdale's for $138.60 (available in 10 colors).

25. A box of cake truffles to reward yourself for making it through not just the holiday season, but all of 2017.

My favorite dessert, is anything birthday cake-flavored. Also, I love Starbucks birthday cake pops sooo much. If you've never had them before, I 10/10 recommend them. I stumbled across these funfetti cake bites on Etsy while recently working on a post filled with products for dessert lovers and ever since then, I've been looking at the product photo with heart eyes. Plus, for the person who feels like they currently have everything they pretty much want, desserts are a great gift. Who doesn't want to enjoy a sweet treat for the holidays? —Sam WiederGet some from The Sweet Life on Etsy for $15+.

26. A pair of presentable Ugg boots for keeping your feet warm without looking too bulky.

Say what you will about Uggs, but they're the only boots that can actually keep my feet warm. I have terrible circulation and winter usually means numb, frozen paws for me. Classic Uggs are just shapeless, giant slippers you can wear outside, but these Neumel Chukka Boots actually have form—and laces! Plus the sizes start at 5, so I can actually find a pair that fits. —Bek O'ConnellGet them from Zappos for $129.95 (available in sizes 5–18 and seven colors).

27. An adorable wireless speaker that'll help you channel your inner rock 'n' roller regardless of what you choose to play on it.

This Bluetooth-enabled speaker that looks like a little guitar amp is is so freakin' cute I want to squish it. I love the charm in its analog knobs and clean, classic design — and the fact that it's made by a well-respected brand in the music-gear world. Reviews attest to its powerful, high-quality sound, and I could see it nestled on a shelf easily complementing any style of decor. —Emmy FavillaGet it from Amazon for $289.99 (available in 3 colors).

28. Shearling ankle boots, because it's 2017 and you can have it all (as long as "it all" is beautiful shoes and warm feet).

Barneys

When I was a foolish youth, I was notorious for compromising comfort for fashion. But now that I'm past quarter-life, I don't have time for that shit. I still want to look cute, but you will no longer see me teetering around the icy New York streets in spiky heels. These shearling-lined ankle boots are adorable and sneaky-warm at the same time, like a fashion double agent. —Jessie Gaynor

Get them from Barneys for $390 (available in sizes 6 to 12).

29. A mid-century chair — you won't be able to wait to plop down in it after a long day of work.

I love mid-century furniture. I don't love the price tag of mid-century furniture. But this is a wish list, and I'm going to wish, damn it. Please, wingback chair, come to me. —Adam DavisGet it from AllModern for $266.99 (available in 7 colors).

30. A suede shirt jacket that won’t cost a fortune compared to designer labels.

Gap Men is killing the winter outerwear game, and its suede shirt jacket in classic camel is a prime example. While this 100-percent suede jacket with snap cuffs and diamond-quilted lining isn’t exactly a “steal,” it’s a much, much thriftier alternative to similar jackets sold at Tom Ford and Mr. Porter. —Colin GorensteinGet it from Gap for $368 (available in sizes XS to XXL).

The kale salad recipe from the first Smitten Kitchen book taught me that maple syrup belongs in dressings, and it changed my life. —Jess ProbusGet it from Amazon for $20.97, Barnes & Noble for $22.08, or from a local bookseller through Indiebound here.

32. Edgar Allen Poe socks for all Poe-lka dot fans. Your feet have never experienced such culture.

Okay, so I've been wanting these socks for forever. I find them extremely entertaining. I'm just nervous to buy them because I've heard that they're super high-maintenance. They hate bells, are obsessed with this girl named Annabelle Lee, etc. —AnaMaria GlavanGet a pair from Amazon for $15.

33. A pair of Fenty x Puma creepers so you can tap into just a corner-piece of Rihanna’s fashion greatness.

Rihanna is Queen of all things fashion. And adding some major Rih-inspired style details with the rugged-sportiness of the cleated platform sneakers has me convinced I need these platform sneaks like yesterday. —Treye GreenGet them from Nordstrom for $159.95 (available in four colors and sizes 6.5-10).

34. A heavy, faux shearling jacket for anyone who needs something to motivate them out of their heated apartment and into the cold hard streets.

Bloomingdale's

Has anyone else ever cried merely because of how cold they are? I hope I’m not alone. I usually wear the bulkiest parka I can find, but I’m getting real sick of everyone looking cute on the street while I look like the Marshmallow Puff Man. Only he can really pull that off. So this shearling moto jacket is both stylish and super-warm — really the only two requirements I was looking for. Plus, it’s metallic, and I’m basically a raccoon who’s drawn to anything shiny. And yes, it’s a little on the pricier side, but it’s a jacket and I’m wearing it everyday. And if it’s keeping me toasty and trendy, then I’m a happy camper. —Emma McAnaw

Get it from Bloomingdale's for $124.60 (available in sizes XS to L).

35. A statue of a sleepy pug you can name "Puddles" and treasure forever.

I live in an apartment that does not allow dogs and, because I failed high school improv and clearly would not fake an illness to get a therapy dog, I searched the Internet for the next best thing. Puddles is not "the next best thing," he is the actual best thing. It is unreal how cute he is. And he costs 100x's less than an actually living, breathing, pooping French Bulldog. My budget (and heart) can work with that. —Mal MowerGet it from Wayfair for $32.99.

36. A pair of brightly colored earrings (by Trina Turk) that almost look like little caterpillars o' jewels.

37. An eye-catching, shimmery lip balm for unicorn-approved lips.

Winky Lux has pretty much cornered the market on affordable beauty products with absurdly fun packaging, but their Glitter Balm takes cute novelty beauty to the next level. The white balm reacts to your skin's pH to create a shimmery shade of pink that's perfect for you. Also, did I mention it smells like coconut so you can feel like you're on perma-vacation? Technically, I don't need a glittery lip balm for anything, but I still want it. —Bek O'ConnellGet it from Winky Lux for $14.

38. A handsome camo parka to keep you wintertime fly without feeling like you're wearing a marshmallow-stuffed pillow.

I’m typically not the biggest fan of camo outerwear. But I tried this parka on in a J. Crew store recently, and I promise I almost screamed because it fit so perfectly. It wasn’t too pillowy but also not too thin. And after our unexpected run-in, I expedited it to the top of my outerwear wish list. —Treye Green Get it from J.

39. A long, sleek Everlane wallet in a grown-up color.

I've convinced myself that buying a nice wallet is sort of like The Secret, in that it will make me more conscious about my finances in general and attract more money (or better money habits) to me. I'll LYK how it goes if I ever get it... —Jess ProbusGet it from Everlane for $120 (available in three colors).

40. A copy of Stephen King's On Writing so you'll no longer feel like a sham as 1) a King fan and 2) a writer.

It recently occurred to me (while reading this story) that I've never read King's memoir about life and writing! Then I felt bad about that because, tbh, I think it'd be more beneficial to me than The Elements of Style. Sorry, E.B. White. So I'm looking to fix that over the holidays. —Elizabeth LillyGet it from Amazon for $12.02, Barnes & Noble for $12.58, or from a local bookseller through Indiebound here.

41. A tote for telling the world how you're feeling 24/7 this winter: COLD AF.

Inscriptions that would also suffice include: "Baby, I'm hungry. Can we order takeout?" & "Baby, let's go iceskating so I can Instagram it." —Jen TontiGet it from Kate Spade for $198.

43. A pair of Marilyn Manson socks that would look so good with your favorite ankle boots.

I'm a total sucker for Manson but spent so much cash on band merch back during the emo third wave that I'm extremely picky about any music merch I buy as an adult. But these! I'll make an exception for these! He's an amazing performer, I can't stop listening to his new album, and we wear approximately the same amount of makeup. Plus, I have several Wednesday Addams-ish dresses that would look great with these. —Elizabeth LillyGet them from Killstar for $15.

44. A Harry Styles biography guaranteed to make anyone who's a fan cry and scream for joy. Hey, maybe it'll turn everyone else into a devoted fan too.

I am a huge fan of Harry Styles, LIKE THE BIGGEST FAN OF HARRY STYLES. I came across this book online the other day, and while it isn't written by Harry himself, while I wait for Harry Styles to write an autobiography, this biography will surely suffice. I'm very into reading just about any article, interview, or book written about him, and this one just seems super cool. It's filled with quotes, stories about him, and quizzes, which I, without a doubt, will ace. —Sam WiederGet it from Amazon for $8.65, Barnes & Noble for $8.20, or a local bookseller through Indiebound here.

45. A cozy, cute demon baby-doll who'll definitely keep all the (other) monsters away at night.

There isn't much I have to say about this doll except that LITERALLY WHAT is cuter than a plush, dressy, lady-like demon toy?! She has been on my Christmas/Birthday/Arbor Day present list for the last two years and none of my friends are creepy enough to get it for me. But I like to think that someday she'll simply appear in my home, hovering over my bed, her (probably glowing red) eyes staring straight into mine and she'll say, "You belong to me now." Wouldn't that be cute?! —Mal MowerGet it from Shak-Shuka for $89.

47. A New York subway train sign to hang in your apartment so you can get updates on the arrival times of your subway.

The first time I saw a handmade NYC Train Sign in a Brooklyn bar, I assumed it was completely ornamental—then when I realized this bad boy was actually connected to MTA data and regularly updated ETAs, I was totally sold. NYC Train Sign—a tech startup based out of Brooklyn— is still in its infancy, but I imagine as more people like myself discover the magic of these things, they’ll be a living room staple for Greater New York City millennials. —Colin GorensteinGet it from NYC Train Sign for $299.

48. A raincoat that will genuinely make you wish for rain.

gormanshop.com.au

I'm very much someone who cancels plans if it's raining. I'll look out my window, see raindrops, and think to myself, "Ya know, maybe I *don't* want to go to that exhibit I was planning on seeing today." If I had this jacket, that would never, EVER happen. I would Gene Kelly down the street (yes, I'm using Gene Kelly as a verb) with a smile on my face. What a beauty. —Mallory McInnis

Get it from Gorman for $99.

49. A T-shirt commemorating Weird Al's "Amish Paradise" because the song will never not make you laugh.

To this day, I can't hear "Gangsta's Paradise" without getting embarrassingly excited and then disappointed that it isn't the Weird Al parody. I won't say it's his best parody, because I can't choose. His songs are like my children! That I don't have! —Elizabeth LillyGet it from Weird Al for $17.47 (available in sizes S to 3XL).

52. Deep emerald green Timberland winter boots with velvet accents perfect for tromping through city streets in the height of luxury.

There's a reason I put the George Costanza quote "I would drape myself in velvet if it were socially acceptable" in so many posts. It's true! But I no longer care what's socially acceptable. I have velvet leggings, a velvet purse, velvet jacket... the list goes on — and these are next. I need a pair of waterproof winter boots anyway (NYC's bottomless slush puddles are real and terrifying) — so why not opt for these?? —Maitland QuitmeyerGet them from Nordstrom for $169.95 (available in 4 colors and sizes 5.5 to 10).

53. A hilarious book of horrible inventions sure to make you feel way better about your failed zip-up underwear idea.

amazon.com

I recently flipped through this book in a gift shop and almost purchased it for the full $26 they were asking for it because it's THAT FUNNY. The inventions are simultaneously mind-numbing in ridiculousness and also verging on absolute genius. I don't want to live in a world without this book in it. —Mal Mower

54. High-rise Madewell denim jeans in a classic blue color that you'll never get sick of.

Oh boy, do I love jeans. And these jeans are very, very beautiful. I love the high-rise style, the four-button closure, and the frayed hems that says "these are vintage, okay?" Plus, this is the kind of wash that I'll be able to wear for the next 706 years. Swoon. —AnaMaria GlavanGet them from Nordstrom for $135 (available sizes 24 to 32).

55. A sleek and sexy record player to listen to your bops, jams, and bangers.

Everyone who knows me understands that music literally equals life. I started a vinyl collection a couple of years ago and I almost never listen to them because my family's old record player died of old age. It's true what they say — the music output of vinyl sounds warmer than anything digital. There's nothing better than laying on the floor and jamming out to Fleetwood Mac's Rumours all the way through. Anyway, I'm in need of another record player to bring back some kind of joy, and with this pink one from Urban Outfitters, you can set up all the albums you've ever want to play, and place the speakers anywhere since it's bluetooth enabled, which sounds fucking awesome to me. —Ignacia FulcherGet it from Urban Outfitters for $199 (available in 4 colors).

Steve Madden

Lately, I've been obsessed with booties and I love anything studded – shoes, clothing, accessories, etc. I've had my eyes on these Steve Madden shoes for a while now, and TBH, I'm kind of surprised I haven't bought them yet. But, hey, now that the holiday season is in full swing, it feels like an appropriate time to wish for them. Pretty sure that I will basically live in these once I eventually get them. —Sam Wieder

I always get so inspired by glittery holiday party style spreads in magazines and catalogs, even though I don't have any glitzy events to go to. But I could put these ginormous bows on with any dress in my closet and suddenly feel like a fabulous socialite. —Katy HermanGet a pair from Kate Spade for $78.

59. And a premium dutch oven so you can try out those delicious new recipes featured in food magazines.

I've recently started cooking at home more, and I discovered that a lot of recipes I want to try (such as beef bourguignon) call for a dutch oven. I've had this one on my wishlist for months now, and I think I'll finally bite the bullet and invest in one. It'll last for literally forever, and I'll be more inclined to cook instead of getting takeout, so really it'll save me money in the long run.
