Naughty or nice, this is what’s on our Christmas wishlist.
From handbags to homeware, jewellery to jumpers, and everything in between – these are the pieces on the CF Team’s Christmas gifts wishlist.

I’m a big handbag fan and I’d love to add this small Loewe Puzzle to my collection. The neutral shades will work well with my wardrobe. For the magpie in me, London-based jewellery brand Alighieri’s Celestial Raindrop 24kt gold-plated necklace has my heart. I’ll layer it over a simple white t-shirt for a polished daytime look. Lastly, I’ve been searching for the perfect loafers and Saint Laurent’s perfect penny slippers are everything I could want and more. I’ve been good this year, Santa…

Top of my wishlist are a pair of pearl and zirconia gold Pulp earrings from Completed Works which make a statement without breaking the bank. I’m also hoping for a new tote bag to smarten up my office attire, like this chain-embellished beauty from JW Anderson. And if Father Christmas decides to deliver a cosy Khaite cashmere sweater to see me through to summer, I’ll be a very happy woman this Christmas.

Any of these beautiful KINRADEN jewellery pieces, each made using sustainably-sourced Tanzanian Mpingo (blackwood), but I’m particularly in love with The Sky gold earrings. Next, and because you can never have too many coats in this weather, I’d also love to receive this nautical blue wool coat from Ganni. Last on my list is a pair of these Gianvito Rossi velvet platforms, just in time for New Year’s Eve.
Alexandra Carello, PR Director
I’m hoping to receive this full Liberowe look and pretend I’m the modern-day ice queen. I would wear it with white polka dot tights from Tabio and go all out! I’ve been eyeing up these Jimmy Choo platforms to add to my growing shoe collection. They’re showstoppers, especially in bright fuchsia. This shimmering Hayley Menzies Jesse Pussybowe shirt has been on my list for a long time. I love the drama and volume and would pair it with tailored trousers or denim.
Becki Murray, Contributing Beauty Editor
Citizen Femme’s daily Countdown to Christmas newsletter reads as my personal beauty editor’s wishlist this year, but I’m especially eager to continue the tradition of gifting my parents (and myself) a Jo Malone London Charity Candle to light on Christmas Eve. I’m also hoping for a new black cross-body bag, like Stella McCartney’s Falabella, under the tree. And, I would be over the moon to unwrap a pair of Saint Laurent’s Lou ankle boots – just what I need to complete my winter wardrobe.
Lucrezia Motta, Editorial Assistant
My number one item this year is this beautiful Lara sequinned mini dress by Rixo. I’d also love to find new makeup in my stocking, including Suqqu’s Moisture Rich Lipstick in the shade 10. Finally, earrings are my favourite jewels, and I’ve got my eyes on this pretty pair of rose gold and silver hoops by DoDo.
Morag Turner, Contributing Editor, Citizen Enfants
I’m really hoping that Santa has been taking the hint and that I wake up to some beautiful gold earrings from By Alona. I love their statement pieces. We will be spending New Year with friends at our beach house in South Africa, so I’d love something new to wear in the sun. My choice would be this gorgeous pink one-piece from Cossie and Co. Such a flattering neckline. My children always love to choose a little gift for me, and my favourite La Mer hand cream would be a lovely treat.
