HER Picks: Top 3 Holiday Gift Guides

It’s that time again. Time for the 6 words that bring as much panic as they bring joy. “What do you want for …?” You’d think after years of hearing the same question from our parents, our siblings, our significant others, we’d be better equipped to tackle such a happy inquiry. But for most of us, not so much.
In preparation for this year’s holiday season, I put some advance thought into my Chrismukkah list. I think you’ll agree that it wound up pretty solid (and I’m fairly certain I’ll get everything I asked for):

1. socks
2. The Ultimate sports bra from Victoria’s Secret
3. Full Woman, Fleshly Apple, Hot Moon: Selected Poems of Pablo Neruda
4. cat tree (so my cat stops scratching my couch)
5. Kristen Stewart’s official coming out statement*

*It was either that or a personal serenade from Tegan and Sara.
