Despite beginning my holiday shopping in mid-October, I still am on the hunt for several gifts. In the hope of finding some fresh options, I tapped members of the team at Barneys New York to reveal what amazing gifts they’re giving—and hoping to get—this holiday season. They did offer eight excellent suggestions.

Jay Bell, Executive Vice President, Womenswear

“Classic and always cool, Prada’s iconic Saffiano leather goods are as functional as they are chic. Timeless gifts that last a lifetime!”

ALEXANDER WANG Wanglock “Thank You” Mini Shopper Tote Bag

Annie Chen, Vice President, DMM Women’s Developing Designer

“This NYC icon is reimagined in Swarovski crystals, making it the perfect piece of festive arm candy for holiday soirees!”

VANS Women’s OG Old Skool LX Tweed Sneakers

Nicole Spellman, Associate Editor, The Window

“My younger sister would love to unwrap these exclusive Vans sneakers. The multicolor houndstooth pattern would look just as cool paired with a dress for parties as it would with a pair of jeans around her college campus.”

Victoria Lee, Associate Buyer, Men’s Developing Designer

“Can’t think of a more dynamic duo than holiday parties and that perfect red shade of lipstick! For my social-butterfly friends, I think this is just the right addition to their makeup bag for the season.”

Anna Deutsch, Senior Managing Fashion Editor, The Window

“I just moved apartments and finally have more space to entertain. I’d love for someone to gift me this stunning NasonMoretti glassware—perfect for hosting on New Year’s Eve.”

FONTANA MILANO 1915 Tum Tum Medium Leather-Appliquéd Tote Bag

Sarah Blair, Senior Vice President, DMM Women’s Accessories

“Fontana’s beautiful Tum Tum intarsia tote is a pop of holiday cheer and a perfect gift for loved ones who appreciate artisanal craftsmanship.”

Andrew Caldwell, Senior Buyer Men’s Designer

“One of the best things to do during the holidays? Hibernate. So why not do so on luxury lamé bedding from conceptual Swedish homewear brand Magniberg?

Marina Larroudé, Fashion Director

“I love the new reeditions of the Laboratorio ceramic bowls. I’ve been buying them for gifts, but I’m also secretly hoping for someone to gift me the white centerpiece bowl.
