Overwhelmed by the mother of all shopping seasons now in full swing? Make your mark with a present (or several) from industry tried and true brands. Here are 10 star-approved winners, from the Vineyard Vines sherpa to a bottle of vino from Wine Society. 

  1. 1

    Vineyard Vines Sherpa Pull Over

    This long-coveted, New England-based preppy brand has infiltrated Hollywood. Spotted on Emma Roberts, Tia Mowry and Luna Simone Stephens, the trendsetting tot of John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, the classic pullover in Sherpa ($148) comes in sizes for women, kids and men, and will keep the entire family cozy well into spring.

    Bling never disappoints. This brand is a fave of Rihanna, Halsey and Gigi Hadid, who sports Marmer’s Blue Diamond Boho Ring ($1,250). And both Halsey and Zoey Deutch have topped off several ensembles with the White Diamond Boho Ear Crawler ($550, sold individually).

    NuFACE Facial Toning Device

    Ageless beauties like Jennifer Aniston and Miranda Kerr use the trusty Trinity ($325) to strengthen and lift facial muscles. Sleek and FDA-approved, this portable micro-current tool claims to help reduce wrinkles in just five minutes of daily use. 

  4. 4

    Sanuk Goody Basket

    It’s easy to live in Sanuk’s melt-worthy flip-flops ($40) thanks to the cushy, yoga mat sole, especially in La La Land. Just ask Brad Pitt, Amanda Seyfried, Ireland Baldwin and Rosario Dawson. Gift a basket filled with a pair or two, along with the Sun Kissed candle by Mer Sea ($28), a beach-inspired line of gifts touted by Jessica Alba, and Anti-Aging Eye and Lip Perfection ($185) from La Prairie, the decadent skincare collection adored by producer Hilary Shorr, Charlize Theron and Margot Robbie.

  5. 5

    Instytutum Luxury Skincare

    Smooth, radiant skin is always on the most wanted lists. And Charter Communications’ Julia Franz and Elisabeth Rohm agree this “results-driven” line developed in Switzerland delivers. Combine the dynamic duo: Flawless Pads ($69) gently exfoliate and prep the skin and Xceptional Flawless Cream ($129) give a dewy complexion and vibrant glow.

    Amanu Bespoke Sandals





    Bold and bright: Style 06 | Yellow Lined Leather | Nude Sole

    These Italian-inspired, custom-made in 30-minute sandals (from $245) are as one-of-a-kind as the inviting shop itself — don’t be surprised to find yourself lingering with a glass of wine well after your appointment. Choose from a neutral or black sole and an array of inspiring leather, feather and velvet materials to design your own pair(s) and watch as skilled cobblers craft away, just like Live Nation’s Heather Parry, Julianne Hough and Salma Hayek. 

  7. 7

    Samsung SmartThings Hub

    Give the gift of convenience from the brand that counts producer Dana Brunetti, LeBron James and Fox’s Charlie Collier as fans. Streamline all of your gadgets with this one-stop consolidator, otherwise known as the brain of the home ($69.99). Along with the app, easily connect light switches, thermostats, locks and other compatible devices. 

  8. 8

    Parrot Anafi Drone

    Did it really happen if you didn’t capture the moment on a drone? Hollywood has flipped for this high-flying technological wonder, including Karlie Kloss, Liam Hemsworth and producer/director Brant Pinvidic. Lightweight, foldable, packable and user-friendly, the 4K HDR Parrot Anafi ($699) features 180-degree tilt gimbal and up to 2.8 times lossless zoom (plus it's extreme weather resistant and boasts Artificial Intelligence for automated flight modes).

  9. 9

    Wine Society

    Of course a primo bottle of vino never gets old, as producer Charles Roven, Helen Mirren and Elizabeth Banks will attest. But shake things up with a head-turning case of Wine Society’s Pleasure Gamay ($132) or the Premium Variety Pack ($132 for nine cans/36 servings), including Tempt-Red, Fate-White and Chance-Rosé. Blended in California, the wines are housed in sleek cans.

    Felicite Cashmere Sweater

    Cashmere is always a slam-dunk. And the luxe, low-key vibe of this easy-to-wear collection ($268) is a hit with Jessica Seinfeld and Mandeville TV President Laurie Zaks. Their gauze Boyfriend shirts ($148) are also ideal staples for any multi-tasking, style-minded executive.
