Must-haves for holiday

Welcome to Pretty Little Things, where each week we bring you our picks for the prettiest little things online. If we love it, you’ll be the first to know! Today is all about what we’re coveting most for the holidays this year.

All about me

Since we're inching ever closer to Christmas, I thought I would take the opportunity to share some of the things on my must-have list for this holiday. Who knows, maybe you'll be inspired to add them to your own wish list!

Marni Knitted Wool and Brass Chain Bracelet

As soon as I spied this chic piece of arm candy (, $154) I knew I had to ask Santa to slip it into my stocking. The unique brass chain and knitted wool bracelet ups the cool factor of any outfit, whether you're going to the office or a holiday party. Multicolored wool intertwines with a silver-tone brass chain and black ribbon for a decidedly urban accessory.

Grown Under Glass Bubble Bath

There's nothing quite as luxurious as sinking into a tub full of bubbles – especially on a cold winter day. But not just any bubbles will do. I absolutely love this gorgeous glass bottle filled with sumptuous bubble bath (, $48). The ultra-softening soak is packed with skin brightening and healing ingredients such as green tea, blueberry extract and rice bran oil. It also comes in three scents – grapefruit, lavender and rose.

Pour La Victoire Marlow Crossbody

Since you can never have too many great handbags (or pairs of shoes), it should come as no surprise that this stylishly structured green leather bag (, $245) ended up on my holiday wish list. I love the sophisticated design, eye-catching color (with chic contrasting white piping) and printed fabric lining. It's the perfect size to take anywhere without feeling weighed down and it looks great with anything from denim to office attire.

Malin + Goetz Detox Face mask

After all of the holiday indulgences and parties, I'm going to need some serious skin recovery which is why I'm asking for this power-packed face mask (, $40). The gel mask uses oxygenating cleansing agents to clear out pores and lift oil, dirt and makeup, while amino acids and almond extract work to purify, clarify, balance and soothe stressed out skin. Hello, complexion perfection!

Cordova Blue Lace Agate Ring

I'm a sucker for cocktail rings and can't resist adding a new one to my collection any chance I get. This pretty silver and blue piece (, $185) caught my eye recently so I had to add it to my list of holiday must-haves. The sterling silver band meets at the top to hold the beautiful ice blue lace agate stone for an understated by eye-catching design, perfect for winter (or for Hanukkah, if you're buying for a Jewish friend!).

Dior Beauty Holiday Deluxe Travel Palette

Who doesn't want to look gorgeous on the go? Look pulled together and polished no matter where you are with this comprehensive travel palette (Neiman Marcus, $75) featuring mascara, medium pressed powder, pink Ultra-Gloss, blush and six eye shadows – all housed in a sleek red patent zip-up case. I love the idea of having this bevy of beauty musts at my disposal no matter where I am.
