As a professional online shopper (yes, I love my job), I can definitively say that I am great at shopping. I can sniff out a good deal from miles away and tend to have roughly 728 products in my cart at any given time. So, let me help you build your online shopping cart. Whether you’re shopping for major sale events like Prime Day or just upgrading your wardrobe, I’ll always give you the must-have picks.

We all know it’s a given that the best part of the holidays is spending time with your loved ones, followed by so, so many cookies. Next, though, is shopping for holiday gifts for those loved ones — and that means making a list for yourself as well.

But figuring out what holiday gifts to ask for is surprisingly hard, especially when your family is begging for your list. Since I spend all my working hours shopping, I’ve already curated the best holiday gifts this year. Believe me, it took a lot of brain power, but I’m not one to gatekeep.

Scroll down to shop the best editor-approved holiday gifts on my list and get some inspo for yourself and your loved ones.

I’m super precious about every part of my beauty routine — however, I respect that it’s a no-brainer gift for any beauty lover. Instead of surprising someone with beauty products, just get a gift card!

The holidays are the time to be proactive about the following year. By that, I mostly mean summer fashion. I’ve been a loyal Hill House Home customer for years, and I need to get my hands on this tartan Nap Dress!

Remember what I said about being proactive about summer? The same thing goes with this affordable ice cream maker. Instead of dragging your feet to the grocery store, you can just make single-serve ice cream in the comfort of your home at all hours of the day and night.

5. Halfdays Aston Jacket, $425

$425 at Halfdays

My current ski jacket has done well for the past decade, and I’ll love it forever — but it’s time for an upgrade. This ultra-chic belted ski jacket is super technical and eco-friendly and comes in so many amazing colors.

6. Cloud Blume Mug, $22

Having a special mug that’s just for me is a very important part of my self-care formula. Unfortunately, my go-to mug shattered while I was trying to kill a roach. I’m still heartbroken. But it’s time to move on, and I currently have my eye on this super fun bubble mug.

7. Mejuri Bee Ring, $58

For the past couple of years, I’ve been slowly transitioning from cheap jewelry that turned my skin green to higher-quality pieces that will last forever. This 18k gold vermeil gold ring is handcrafted, so there’s no risk of the dreaded green!

8. Le Creuset Set of 4 Pasta Bowls, $72

$72 at Nordstrom

I grew up in an Italian-American household in New York (insert Sopranos joke here), so my diet consists mainly of pasta with some kind of red sauce. The best pasta, of course, needs a good pasta bowl! This set from Le Creuset is the perfect mix of chic, deep and wide.

9. The Dyson Airwrap™ multi-styler Complete Long, $599.99
