There are two types of holiday wish lists: There’s the one you share with your family (because those snowflake-print pajama pants are an easy win for Mom).

And then there’s the one you can only share with your best friend (because only she will understand that while a 24-karat bicycle might not be the most practical gift, you absolutely need it in your life).

And on that note, the PureWow editors would like to share with you our second annual Dream Holiday Wish List (because we’re best friends, duh). We’re talking luxurious retreats (ahem, Taj Mahal), royalty-approved gowns and everything in between. (Hint: There are 15 items on this list.) Let’s all hold hands and dream together.

Musha Cay

THE BEST WORK RETREAT OF ALL TIME

“I want a week on this private island in the Bahamas with my editorial team for dinner parties and brainstorms. You know, to boost creativity.” 
--Mary Kate McGrath, editor in chief

Musha Cay ($39,000 per night)

Lanvin Dress1

THE KNOCKOUT DRESS

“I would like to hire former Vogue editor and Bay Area native Emily Holt to be my personal stylist. If she’s busy right now, I’d take something to remember Alber Elbaz for Lanvin by--like this gold silk crepe maxi.” 
--Allison McCarthy, San Francisco editor

Lanvin ($4,150)

Cartier Galanterie Earrings

GALANTERIE DE CARTIER EARRINGS

THE BIGGEST BED EVER

“Because I’m tired of waking up pushed all the way to one side, with my dog’s leg in my ribs.”

India

THE TRIP OF A LIFETIME

“Twelve days of traveling through India, with stops in Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, Udaipur and Mumbai, with private jet transfers, luxury hotels, private cars and meals and booze included. Plus, a portion of the expense goes back to charity, so it’s a win-win, right? Right.” 
--Caroline Terry, Dallas editor

O’Harani ($400,000)

Rosie Assoulin1

A FROCK FIT FOR ROYALTY

“New Year’s resolution: Attend more galas (or any gala) and live up to my namesake (‘Sara’ means ‘princess,’ you guys). This gown would help immensely.” 
--Sara Little, editor

Rosie Assoulin ($9,895)

 

Cartier Galanterie Necklace

Max Wagner

A PEACEFUL PIECE OF ART

--Rachel Bowie, editor

Max Wanger ($700)

Gold Bike

A GILDED RIDE

“I need this 24-karat bike because--despite how heavy it must be and what an easy target for thieves it is--I can’t think of many things cooler than rolling through the streets atop this baby, wind blowing through my Blake Lively hair (in my wish-list dream I have extensions) without a care in the world.” 
--Sarah Stiefvater, associate editor

Goldgenie ($304,000)

Cuba

AN UNFORGETTABLE ESCAPE... TO CUBA

“Two reasons this weeklong photography excursion is the greatest gift ever: One, it takes place in Cuba. And two, I’d get to spend the week learning from master photographer Dan Winters, who has created some of the most iconic portraits of our time.” 
--Lauren Gniazdowski, managing editor

A HAUTE COAT

--Susan Waits, senior editor

Bathtub

A FREESTANDING SOAKING TUB

“Living in NYC, I’m lucky to have a tub that even drains properly, let alone something I could actually take a bubble bath in. So Santa, if you could please come and install this giant slab of solid wood gorgeousness in my bathroom at your earliest convenience, that would be awesome. OK, thanks!” 
--Lindsay Champion, New York editor
