The CF Team's 2023 Christmas Gift Wishlist Revealed

Naughty or nice, these Christmas gifts are on our wishlist this year.

From handbags to homeware, jewellery to jumpers, and everything in between – these are the pieces on the Citizen Femme team’s wishlist this Christmas.

Sheena Bhattessa, Founder


Anything from Jessica McCormack, and this mini scallop shell necklace, with the 18k yellow and blackened white gold is right at the top. The diamonds are set in millegrained blackened gold with Jessica’s classic antique-meets-contemporary style. I would also love a new pair of evening shoes, dressed up with a classic black dress or with my go-to jeans and white t-shirt. MACH & MACH have totally won me over with their glamorous and utterly feminine shoes, and these double-bow crystal-embellished satin pumps have my name all over them. To add a little warmth to my home with flower deliveries from FLOWERBX, I’m adding Anissa Kermiche’s breast friend vase to my wishlist too.

I’ve had these Khaite Dallas boots on my wishlist all year, they are so versatile and will work from day to night – the perfect investment piece to carry me through all seasons. It may be winter, but the latest JW Anderson canvas shoulder bag is exactly what my spring wardrobe needs, I can’t get enough of the extra large gold buckle and leather trim. Lastly, it comes with fashion editor territory to have expensive taste and, as unrealistic as this is, I can’t get enough of this Tiffany & Co Elsa Peretti cuff. A girl can dream!

Katie Silcox, Managing Editor


I want to stop spending so much money on take-away coffees in 2024, and this Alessi drip coffee maker is a good place to start. Plus, using it would make the perfect accompaniment to a delicious Christmas morning breakfast. As I’m planning some winter getaways over the next few months, these Icon snow boots from Moon Boots are less a want and more a need. I must keep my toes toasty, after all… Plus, it wouldn’t be a Christmas wishlist without some jewellery on it, and these Mateo gold baroque pearl hoops are on mine.

Becki Murray, Contributing Beauty Editor


I’ve been eyeing up Anisa Sojka’s line of party season-perfect accessories since I spied them at the launch of her equally-impressive hair oil  – I’d love to find the tennis necklace in my stocking. I’m in desperate need of a large and dependable handbag to help me start 2024 off in style so am adding The Row Soft Margaux 15 leather tote bag to my list and, as I’ve got a bad habit of stealing my sister’s super-cosy camel jacket, I’m hoping for a similar one under the tree this year. The Max Mara Iconic Teddy Bear coat would be ideal.

Ella Mansell, Editorial Assistant


You’ll never find me without a vintage silk scarf, whether tied to my bag or in my hair, so I’d love to grow my collection with this gorgeous Rose Branch silk scarf from Liberty. I always gift the best coffee table books and I love to receive them too; this year, I would love The Fendi Set: From Bloomsbury To Borghese showcasing Kim Jones’ artistic direction of Fendi womenswear. Lastly, inspired by the incredible archives at the Gucci Cosmos exhibition at 180 The Strand, this pre-loved bamboo handled Gucci bag from Re-Selfridges has caught my eye…

Morag Turner, Citizen Enfants Editor


My husband takes me Christmas shopping every year and this year we’re popping into Completed Works to try on some of their stunning gold statement rings. I love a good coffee table book and they don’t come any chicer than the beautifully-illustrated Painted Travels: Portraits of Remarkable Places by SJ Axelby, so I really hope to find that under the tree. Bamford’s Signature Geranium fragrance is one of my favourites so I would love to receive one of their gorgeous Geranium hampers packed with everything from bath salts to hand balm.

Bibiana Obahor, Head of Graphic Design


Topping my wishlist are the new-in Chanel cotton trainers. I love the seamless blend of comfort and high-end style and the pastel purple has particularly caught my eye – perfect to brighten any outfit. I also have my eye on the Van Cleef Alhambra pendant, a piece I’m longing for because of its classic charm. Completing the list is this ribbed midi dress from Khaite – a dream piece for its elegant, timeless design. It’s the ultimate versatile dress for any occasion.

Grace Robinson, Partnerships Director


I’ve got my eye on the Hunza G Juno red bikini for my annual escape to the sun early in the new year, I just love how reliably comfortable and flattering they are. I’d also love to add some style to my morning coffee ritual with the Bialetti Dolce&Gabbana Moka Express. It would look great in my kitchen. My final wish from Santa is the Wolf & Badger sheepskin reversible vest. The cropped cut is clean, simple and perfect for layering with any outfit.
