What are you most excited for this holiday season?
My family is really excited for our first holiday season in the new house! Since our house is 100 years old, we’re looking forward to using some of that old-world character and charm to our advantage. Obviously having two small kids makes Christmas a blast, so I’m totally fine with going all out, decor-wise.

Which items from the Target holiday collection are on your holiday wish list?
I love the Threshold oversized pillows—they’re perfect to put down around a coffee table with guests or by the fire for the kids. I also love the clean and simple design of the Threshold Black Lanterns—they can be used all year round on your mantle or as part of your tablescape.

Do you have any memorable holiday traditions?
Our Christmas Eve dinner with family and friends is an important tradition for us. That night, Alaïa loves to leave milk & cookies for Santa before going to bed.  

Which items from the Target holiday collection are on your holiday wish list?
I love the Santa family pajama collection because the whole family can match! Also, the Hearth & Hand with Magnolia letters to Santa mailbox is perfect now that Alaïa is bigger. She knows that we need to send letters to Santa and if we’re good, he will bring us what we asked for.

Which items from Target's holiday collection make the perfect gift for…

  • Holiday party host? Google Home Mini—it’s a nice gift to make the hostess’ life a bit easier, so they have a chance to enjoy the party and have fun. They can ask it to turn on the lights, change the music and even set up reminders during the party! 
  • Secret Santa/White Elephant party? We do Secret Santa at work and since most of my co-workers travel a lot, the Wit & Delight travel items like the bottle set, luggage tags and luggage stickers are a great gift idea!

What are you most excited for this holiday season?
I can’t wait to host the annual holiday parties that have become a tradition at our house—it’s such a special chance to gather together the people we love most. I always invite friends to a fancy couples’ dinner party to kick off the season—it's the only time of year you’ll see people wearing cocktail attire at our house.

Which items from the Target holiday collection are on your holiday wish list?
I’m loving all the Scandinavian-inspired motifs on Project 62’s holiday pieces: I can’t wait to get my hands on the appetizer plates and enameled metal tray for serving snacks to holiday guests. I’m also really hoping I can convince my husband to join me in wearing the matching family sleep plaid pajamas—they’re ridiculously cozy and cute!

I am extremely excited to spend my first Christmas as a mother, and to bond and create new memories with our daughter Indi.

Which items from the Target holiday collection are on your holiday wish list?

Which items from Target's holiday collection make the perfect gift for…

  • Kids? The Leapfrog kids learning tablet because it offers entertainment for kids while still giving them the needed learning essentials to activate their brain and continue advancing. 
  • Co-workers? The Keurig K-Cup coffee maker is the perfect addition to any kitchen and perfect for an on-the-go lifestyle, making it easy to grab a quick cup of coffee on the way out of the house, or at the office!

Do you have any memorable holiday traditions?
The holiday season is truly my favorite time of the year! It’s an important time for my family, so we always spend the holidays together and celebrate with a posada. Everyone in my family is a big fan of champagne, so a tradition we share is having everyone bring a bottle of champagne to dinner as their “entry ticket” to the party. We put a big ice bucket by the entrance and as they walk in they put their “ticket” in the ice bucket!

Which items from the Target holiday collection are on your holiday wish list?
The matching family sleep collections are my absolute favorite! I’m especially obsessed with the family sleep elf collection for my girls, and my husband if he’ll agree to it! There are also so many great décor items such as the Threshold needle felted stag pillow and the Threshold faux fur pillow which make for great accent pillows during the holidays.

What are you most excited for this holiday season?
I'm excited for new traditions! My husband and I got married last December and were on our honeymoon for the holidays, so this year I'm really looking forward to staying home and starting our own family traditions...which will definitely involve a huge tree. 

Which items from the Target holiday collection are on your holiday wish list?
I love the Who What Wear collection silky robe; the cherry blossom print feels festive and special for the holidays, plus you can throw it on over just about anything and it will elevate your whole look!

Which items from Target's holiday collection make the perfect gift for…

  • Kids? If I was a kid, I would love this amazing fort, no question. Even better: the design is minimal enough to appeal to parents!
  • Co-workers? Everyone in our office is obsessed with music and design, and I think this gorgeous, small, wireless speaker would be very much appreciated.

What are you most excited for this holiday season?
We are traveling to Mexico as a family for the first time with our new son, Sebastian. Beyond that, I’m looking forward to a few days of leisure doing completely average things like running errands and seeing a movie with a friend. 

Which items from the Target holiday collection are on your holiday wish list?
I’m currently wearing this dress on repeat, styled with a blazer or a cardigan, a belt around my waist and some black knee high boots. I’m also really into this metallic puffer, which will come in handy for a ski trip this winter.

Which items from Target’s holiday collection make the perfect gift for…

  • Kids? Cat & Jack has adorable onesies for babies, I love this 100% cotton version in grey and black. 
  • Holiday party host? I absolutely love all of the stoneware pieces from Project 62. This bowl would be great as a set for cereal, or as a single piece to put on a stack of books on the coffee table or the night stand to hold trinkets.

Do you have any memorable holiday traditions?
Every Christmas Eve we all gather around the fireplace. We write letters to Father Christmas which we then read to the family. The kids’ letters are always hilariously long lists of toys, while the adults are more sentimental. My dad then burns the edges and we watch them fly up the chimney into the night sky. We all race to the window and watch the ashes fly up to Santa and his helpers!

Which items from the Target holiday collection are on your holiday wish list?
SHOES! I can’t get enough of this season’s collection. From mules, to loafers, to velvet heels—they’re high fashion trends at a fraction of the cost. Plus, my twin girls are constantly playing with my shoes...so we might all have fun with these on Christmas morning!

Which items from Target’s holiday collection make the perfect gift for…

  • Kids? Hatchimals! Where were these when I was younger?! They are the hottest toy out right now, so you know you can’t go wrong.
  • Secret Santa/White Elephant party? A Bob Ross Chia Pet…I mean come on, you can’t not laugh at that. It’s appropriate for any White Elephant party, whether it be at work or with friends.

Do you have any memorable holiday traditions?
In Sweden, there is a tradition on Christmas day observed by the whole country where you prepare a huge smorgasbord for Christmas dinner, including rice pudding which is normally dusted with cinnamon and has a hidden almond inside. Whoever gets the almond gets a task—for example, composing a thank you rhyme for the meal. Some say if a single man or woman finds the almond, it is a sign they will find true love in the coming year.

Which items from the Target holiday collection are on your holiday wish list?
I love the Project 62 cocktail shaker and cocktail mixes because they are sleek and stylish, and the mixes make it easy and effortless to create amazing drinks in a flash. You never know when guests may pop over!

Which items from Target’s holiday collection make the perfect gift for…

  • Kids? With so many toys to choose from, I think it’s always nice to go back to the basics. The Wondershop train is a charming and uncomplicated toy for the whole family.
  • Secret Santa/White Elephant party? The holidays are all about magic and excitement, so it makes sense to add a little color and sparkle to the mix. Pixi’s ultimate beauty kit, 4th edition will add a special holiday glow to your make-up bag without breaking the bank.
