Apple Watch Series 5 (GPS + Cellular, 40mm)
As you'd expect from a company like Apple, the latest iteration of the Apple Watch has all the bells and whistles—it may even cook you breakfast, we're not sure. But what we are sure of is it offers both GPS and cellular connection, an Always-On Retina display on its 30%-larger screen from previous models, it's swimproof, and it even has an EGC app that tracks your heart rate.
Cle de Peau Beaute Concealer Broad Spectrum SPF 25
Now while it may seem odd to ask Santa for concealer, trust us: This is like the Ferrari of concealers. Loved by celebrities and their makeup artists alike, Clé de Peau Beauté's concealer delivers long-lasting, full coverage while correcting the appearance of dark circles, spots, imperfections and uneven tone without a heavy finish. And don't you deserve red carpet-ready skin?
Getting a massage is so yesterday. Nowadays, everyone is into the Theragun, which can release knots in your muscles like magic, giving you greater range of motion and mobility, and help "wake up" your muscles. The G3 gives you two colors to choose from with two speeds, four pro attachments to work your muscles with, a travel case, and an hour of battery life, among other amazing things.
Hermitage Bay Resort, St. Mary's, Antigua
Let's face it—2019 was a bit of a dumpster fire. Isn't it time you got away? Best to flee for the azure waters of the Hermitage Bay Resort in Antigua, made up of only 30 eco-luxury suites set on 1,200 feet of natural beach. Better yet, there's 17 Hillside Pool Suites that feature a wraparound deck and private plunge pool. Not only is it all-inclusive, but you'll get round-trip airport transfers if you stay three nights or more. No wonder it was Conde Nast Traveler's Gold List Winner in 2015, 2017 and 2018.
Flywheel Spin Bike
An official entry in Oprah's Favorite Things for 2019, the Flywheel Home Exercise Bike is more than just an attractive appliance to hang your laundry on. In fact, it's WiFi enabled and comes with a free two-month subscription encouraging you to partake in its guided cycling and off-bike workouts (you'll pay $39 per month after the trial ends). You'll have access to thousands of live and recorded workouts, support from elite coaches nationwide, and even get a peek at your performance metrics so you can track your progress. And when it gets the Oprah seal of approval, you know you can't go wrong.

You can pretty much get rid of any other hairstyling tool you own, 'cause you can literally do everything with the Dyson Airwrap. And we do mean everything—curl, wave, smooth and dry your hair without extreme heat using a variety of attachments, including a smoothing brush, round volumizing brush, a pre-styling dryer, and more.

Crème de la Mer Moisturizing Cream
Literally the crème de la crème of skincare, this ultra-rich cream is a dream for dry skin types who need some moisture of the highest degree. Not only will it help heal dry skin and restore its vibrance, but the brand's nutrient-rich Miracle Broth™ can soothe skin sensitivity, improve firmness, and reduce signs of aging.
