December has arrived which calls for rows of garland, decorative trees, an abundance of lights and of course, wish lists. While children scan store catalogues highlighting which Barbie doll or Legos they want,  Houstonia Staff are also making a list and checking it twice.  Jewelry from Louis Vuitton and local favorite Fly High Jewelry top our list, along with a must-have espresso machine and a book to unwind and read by the fire. As you're putting together your lists for family and co-workers, browse through our selection for inspo.

Shop ahead for Houstonia Staff's 2021 wishlist.

Fly High Jewelry Trois Baguette Studs  Local


"Shop local! Fly High Little Bunny is a jewelry store on 19th street that has a nice selection of jewelry and probably the best logo and name this side of Houston. My choicest gift to me would be the simple minimal beauty of the Trois Earrings that are available on their online store. Gold plated over sterling silver with crystal studs–these three little crystal baguettes are absolutely beautiful." – Amy Kinkead, Art Director

Verity by Colleen Hoover


"This book might've been on "Book Tok," but the author is worth all the hype, Colleen Hoover always tells her stories so beautifully. With the holidays here and being a book worm who is going to have tons of time off, this is definitely my ideal holiday gift." - Sophia Gonzalez, Fall Intern

"This duvet cover is beautifully made with my favorite color and is stonewashed to give it that worn out and textured look. I’m in the process of moving and I want so many new things, but first thing’s first— the bedroom has got to be comfortable and cozy! It also looks incredibly easy to clean, which is a HUGE plus!" - Geneva Diaz, Editorial Assistant

"Getting boxes in the mail is so much fun. And I like how you can get a subscription box for just about any interests. For anyone who is shameless about things they like to nerd out on, like movies or sci-fi and pop culture, then Loot Crate is the way to go.  The three month subscription is a good way to start." - Camilo Hannibal Smith, Managing Editor

Shaftel Diamonds Orange Enamel Diamond Huggie Hoop Earrings Local


"I am hoping to unwrap these enamel hoop huggies from Shaftel Diamonds this year! They come in a few different colors, but my personal favorite are the orange. I also love that 20% of the proceeds from these earrings go back to Sky High For Kids, a Houston-based non-profit that help fund pediatric cancer research." - Marianna Corcoran, Marketing Director

Tyler Candle Company Diva Glam Wash Local

"Since my mid-20s, my Christmas list contains 1 item at the very top each year: the Diva Glam Wash. This isn't just any ordinary laundry detergent, though. It quite literally smells like a million dollars, and is an indescribable aroma experience. This gift is practical, out of the box, a little boujee, and can meet a number of price points ($7.25 - $95). It's the gift that keeps on giving, and I sure do hope Santa gives me the whole gallon this year." - Michelle Creasman, Account Executive

Kuchi Naoshi Designer Cookies

Price Upon Request

"I know you wouldn't expect designer cookies to be on my wishlist, but the works of art that come out of Kushi Naoshi are amazing! Not only do they look incredible, they taste delightful! I'm really hoping to find a few of these gems in my stocking when I head back to the midwest for the holidays. (Cough cough) Take the hint Mom!" - Jesse Hieb, Account Executive
