19 Things We Actually Want To Get For The Holidays This Year

From great books, fancy space heaters, and wavy apparel.

For the holidays this year, FADER staffers didn't ask for much. Some of us requested expensive things we'd rather not get for ourselves, but for the most part we kept it pretty simple and listed things we'll get the most out of or consistently wear. Check out our wish list below.

"Being an adult is hard. All I want for the holidays/ 2017/ the rest of my life is peace of mind. This seems like a good place to start." —Jason Parham

2. Some damn good reads
Amazon

"For Chrismukkah this year, I want some damn books. Specifically, I want this beautiful book about the artist Tom of Finland's house in L.A. because it looks really hot. I would also be really happy if I got Lucky Peach's vegetable cookbook." — Myles Tanzer

3. A membership to Equinox

"This year, adulting got completely real: I went from being a black workout barbie to a black barbie who was too tired to go the gym like I used to. Last year, I swindled my way into a 10-day Equinox membership-trial and I have never looked more forward to burning out in a barre class, or a hard personal training session because the sweet reward of cold eucalyptus towels and a steam room was worth the pain. Please, I want to see my abs again." — Lakin Starling

4. Poemotion 3

"I don't know about you, but I need a drink — and nothing says Christmas to this Brit like the sweet yet sharp tang of sloe gin. Basically they stuff a shitload of sloe berries into gin and let it steep for ages. Serve over ice and feel your cheeks turn as pink as the liquor." — Ruth Saxelby

7. Maroon 5, Songs About Jane LP

9. Lucky Sheep™ Wool sleeping bag

"Because men are trash and I prefer trash to not talk to me while I'm walking down the street, minding my business, or just existing in general. Also, because this sweater is cute as fuck and 10% of the profits go to feminist activists!" — Juliana Pache

"This year I watched a loved one go through the trauma of partly losing their hearing. It can happen to anyone, completely out of the blue. I can't imagine living in a world where I can't experience the music I love, so in 2017 I won't ever be going to a show without a pair of earplugs." — Aimee Cliff

14. BARRAGÁN's "Juegos Sexuales" tee

If someone were to purchase me a DVD copy and a DVD player for me to play the DVD on, I would finally be able to finish the movie. Please. I would like to know what happens at the end." — Amos Barshad
