Whether you’re still searching for gifts or enjoying a little fantasy shopping for yourself, this list is sure to offer plenty of inspiration for the holiday season.

If I am going to covet anything this holiday season it may as well be a piece of Elizabeth Taylor’s jewelry—this serpent wrap Bvlgari watch is just spectacular. My other gift to myself was a trip to (my home) Honolulu and a visit to Doris Duke’s Shangri La (I’ve just booked a private tour). Did you know she has a wall on the side of the house that literally sinks into the ground to open her living room up to the outdoors? The house is brilliant. The last item on my wish list is an original movie poster from Nosferatu the Vampyre just found it on Ebay—now I just need to find a haunting vintage frame to hang it in.
A first class ticket for two around the world for a year, filled with visits to my favorite artists studios. But for real: Ani Kasten Ceramics. A stack of Commune/Mateo linens. Stacks of plates, bowls, and cups from Heath for gatherings with my beautiful friends. True democracy in the US. Magical moments on black sand beaches. A French Arteluce ’50s table lamp at REWIRE, Los Angeles. An afternoon with Jane Birkin. A Ricky Swallow bronze sculpture. Endless laughter with my siblings. Oh and an Agnes Martin painting. A hand printed poster with my daily mantra: “I already have everything I will ever need.”

I tried on this Thom Browne womenswear cape in the showroom and it is actually quite brilliant and workable. I think it’s perfect for the festive season, so can I please have that one, Santa?
