This year’s Highsnobiety Gift Guide is all about the presents that’ll make a difference in these new and strange times. From gifts that encourage connection with loved ones, to self-love suggestions you entirely deserve at the end of 2020.

They’ve spent the year dressing icons of pop culture in beautiful things, for cover shoots and music videos, but today we’re shining a light on some of our favorite stylists themselves. The holiday season is a time for giving, of course, but there’s always room for a little self-indulgence.

With that in mind, we got in touch with five stylists from across the globe, from London to LA, to find out what’s topping the holiday wishlists of these sartorial galaxy brains. Requests span from Land Rovers to a PS5.

Scroll to see what five international stylists want this holiday.
