Our family celebrates Christmas, and though we're by no means frantically in to the holidays like some families I've seen in the neighborhood (decorating their entire home from rooftop to garden), we still try to keep to the tradition of giving gifts and keeping presents a surprise. More importantly, it always feels like a lovely time to slow down, stop, step away from the crazy pace of NYC life and just enjoy the company of family.
Some of the things currently on my own Christmas wish list:
A beautiful, shimmering gold scarf.
A sexy striped bikini.
A hip-length puffy winter coat that keeps the wearer warm without having to don a giant, ankle-length down coat every time.
flat, almond toe boot great for walking around the city, and in a light camel to counter balance all the black in a New Yorker's wardrobe.
little play suit for a niece that I'm waiting to welcome in to the world.
Lucky boy Sunday doll made of baby alpaca for aforementioned niece, for her to cuddle at bedtime.
Another Minkoff ladylike black satchel that matches everything, to replace my adored Rebecca Minkoff that I spilled coffee inside last year. That traveler mug was not spill proof as advertised!
What's on your holiday wish list?
