With all due respect to the proverbial early bird, it’s the early holiday shopper for whom the seasonal spoils really belong: Gift season has officially arrived on Gilt, and with it, a slew of perfect presents (and–today only–free shipping!). These five seriously chic items are topping my wish list, so ready your trigger finger for 12pm ET to shop like an editor.

As wonderful as it is to receive a gift, what is a better feeling that giving a loved one a thoughtful gift and watching her face light up? We’re taking this week to celebrate that magic moment of making them smile as they unwrap presents, eat delicious treats and celebrate with friends and family.
We have the ultimate gifting experience as kate spade new york takes over the Women’s site on November 29, with gift picks for everyone on your list by the brand’s fabulous Creative Director Deborah Lloyd and handbags, wallets, tech cases, jewelry and more to choose from. There’s also clothing that’s so adorable and charming that you’ll have to grin wearing it. There’s Jack Spade goodies for all the guys in your life too!
Need more gifts for the guy in your life? Think John Varvatos from head-to-toe along with sleek separates from Giorgio Armani and heritage-inspired looks from Gilded Age.
Light up the faces of all the little ones on Christmas morning with toys from Melissa & Doug, Airflow Collectibles, and Radio Flyer. For the hostess with the mostess, how about a Sodastream machine or luxurious bedding from Missoni Home?
If you look up the word “smile” in the dictionary it says “to be pleasant or agreeable.” But I have a bone to pick with Webster’s — a smile is so much more than that! It’s the sheer delight in a child’s face as he rips open a gift. It’s the facial expression from your mom that translates to “Omg I love it!” It’s even the barely-there grin of your special someone who doesn’t know whether to laugh or cry upon seeing a sentimental present.
This week, Gilt is celebrating the gift of the grin. A flash of those pearly whites is a treat for the eyes and the soul, so here is the easiest way to get those darling dimples to show up: Give family and friends gifts they’ll love. Just a few ideas to get you started: Kids will go crazy for retro pedal cars and Radio Flyer’s wagons and trikes — they’ll let little speedsters cruise around in style.
Ladies will love kate spade new york’s colorful clothes, purses, and jewelry, and there’s Jack Spade goodies for the guys in your life too. For the hostess with the mostess, a deliciously scented Seda France candle will perk up her senses and a Sodastream machine will bring out her bubbly side. But the best part about seeing a smile is that it will make you smile too, and Gilt’s glamorous gifts make it easy to spread the joy.
Maybe it’s the family time, maybe it’s over-stuffing ourselves with stuffing and turkey and pie and more, maybe it’s the endless football games to watch from the couch…but no other week of the year makes us feel as cozy as this one. All of us here at Gilt.com wanted to celebrate this special time of year with all the things you need to make the holidays warm and cuddly, from head to hearth.
For the ladies, there is cashmere of every shape, texture and pattern in the Cashmere Shop. Layer her in knits from Eileen Fisher, and wrap up in Badgley Mischka outerwear. If you really want to make her feel all warm and fuzzy towards you forever, there’s vintage Hermes bags in every shape, size and color on Tuesday, November 20!
Men can get gifted with all the warmest winter essentials, from famously sturdy Helly Hansen jackets to snow-impervious Sorel boots. The little ones can snuggle up in Neige winter wear or Portolano cashmere and hug a Steiff plush toy tight.
Drape a cashmere throw over the couch, light a Burn candle and nibble on decadent pumpkin flavored whoopie pies or the gingerbread house you made at Dylan’s Candy Bar. Or just think warm thoughts while planning a beach getaway to Half Moon in Jamaica or Hotel Las Palmas in Mexico!
