For the Skincare Devotees
Mila Moursi has long been a favorite skincare brand of Wedding Style, with her products being an innovative and highly advanced combination of skincare technology and nature. Many of the moisturizers are deeply hydrating, making them perfect for winter; and we simply cannot live without the Mila Moursi Broad Spectrum Sunscreen.

One of our best skincare discoveries in 2023 was OPULUS Beauty Labs, which highlights capsules made of only cosmetic ingredients. If the skincare devotee in your life has a techy side, then they’ll love receiving the OPULUS activator, along with a set of their moisturizing concentrates.

By placing two squares of the concentrate into the activator with a spoonful of water, they can blend up their own freshly whipped batch of serum and moisturizer at its peak potency.

“I took the OPULUS activator and Vitamin B concentrates with me on a two-week dive trip this summer, and my skin looked like I had been at a spa the entire time when I came home,” says Managing Editor, Mala. “I also love that the products are completely plastic-free.”

“I love how the 3-Step Skin Recovery System with Restoring Eye Serum by Sapelo leaves my skin supple, moisturized, and glowing,” shares Paula, our Special Projects Editor, “especially for my dry skin, without a greasy or heavy residue. The eye serum is magnificent for combatting the appearance of fine lines.”

For the Bride-To-Be
Without question, Lou Hansell luxury hangers are an absolute must-have for the bride-to-be. Wedding detail photos are standard these days, and photographers always take a shot of the wedding dress hanging up. Lou Hansell luxury hangers are specifically designed not only to protect bridal couture, but to look beautiful when being photographed as well. If you know someone who is getting married in 2024, they will certainly appreciate a set of Lou Hansell hangers this holiday season.
For the Accessory Queen
Mark Cross was one of our favorite handbag designers this year, with several styles that make for the perfect bridal bag. We especially love the Benchley Mini and Grace Micro Bag.
Shoes by Femmes Sans Peur were featured in our fashion shoot at Waldorf Astoria Washington DC this year, so we’re confident that the shoe collector in your life will love their fashion-forward styles. If you want to spring for a bag that will complement high-fashion footwear, then a clutch by Gabo Guzzo is the perfect match. We love how this brand intentionally merges jewelry and fashion with art.

For the Luxury Lifestyle
Infusing a little luxury into one’s life is the perfect way to shake up any mundane moments throughout the year – or at least, make “the little things” feel that much more special. When it comes to the home, taste is very personal; but for a season of style, you may consider pieces by designer Sacha Walckhoff, or tableware collections by Vista Alegre x Bordallo Pinheiro.
Writing instruments are an incredibly stylish and timeless gift for almost anyone, and David Oscarson has some of the most artful pen collections available. The Nikola Tesla pens would make excellent Christmas gifts for him, and we instantly fell in love with the Hans Christian Anderson collection. It couldn’t be more apropos for the bibliophile in your life.

A set of coffee cups, saucers, and dessert plates from Christian Lacroix Maison are a whimsical addition to one’s daily coffee ritual; and for the tea drinkers in your life, a beautifully presented set of teas by Tea Forte is a welcome holiday gift. “I adore Tea Forte's Moroccan mint and chamomile citron teas,” Paula adds, “and the design is iconic.”
Does your giftee prefer a stiffer drink? Barware sets by Vista Alegre x Bordallo Pinheiro and LIITON are ultra-stylish without being too fussy.

A beautiful vanity from Scully & Scully is a thoughtful gift for jewelry collectors (bonus points if it includes a gorgeous bracelet inside), and then there’s the crème de la crème for containing one’s belongings – a luggage set from SteamLine. We adore the bold Entrepreneur Lip Print Collection, with its red shade and coquettish print.
Do you know someone whose hair is “their thing?” The iQ Perfetto hair dryers by Gama are far from the average styling tool. Advanced technologies and innovations have led to a design that dries hair in record time, while improving overall hair health and achieving a salon-quality blowout.

Finally – haven’t you heard? Sustainability is the new luxury. We love the tradition of brides and grooms gifting each other watches on their wedding day, and the WAVE Collection by Armitron is the perfect watch to drop into everyone’s stocking. These watches are crafted from upcycled plastic that has been recovered from the ocean, so wearers can look stylish while also supporting an important cause.

“As a self-proclaimed ocean guardian,” says Mala, “I love what Armitron is doing with ocean-bound plastics. The watches look effortlessly chic, yet they’re very durable – you can feel the quality of each piece when you put it on, and I don’t have to worry about ruining it when I’m running around the beach. I gifted one to my best friend this holiday season, and she’s been wearing it nonstop.”
