They make them right in the window where you can watch the giant mixer whip up the delicious batter into the most decadent delicious chocolate chip cookie you ever ate. I am so happy that they started to ship them and the packaging is beautiful. The perfect gift for your friends with a sweet tooth."

Aerie Flannel Boyfriend Pajamas

"Flannel pajamas are definitely a necessity during the holiday season. But these are no ordinary PJ's! I love these because of the velvet detail in the belt and the contrary lining in the waistband," Jill told E!. 

If you love this pajama top pair it with the matching boxers or the matching pants.

OFFLEASH By Aerie Flannel Dog Shirt

Jill continued, "During the holiday, There is only one thing better than being in your new comfy, cozy flannel pajamas …and that is your DOGGIE in a matching flannel outfit!"

Beauty Pie Annual Membership

Jill advised, "Make sure to get your loved ones a Beauty Pie Membership, so that they can enjoy the perks of a website and products beyond the holidays. I love Beauty Pie because you can buy all your favorite beauty products at up to 75% of regular retail prices. It is the best deal in town and they can enjoy the discount all year long. The gift that keeps on giving and your friends will look great all year long too. If you are lucky, they might even share some with you!"

INC International Concepts Kayliee Fanny Pack, Created for Macy's

Jill said, "The Kayliee Fanny Pack is the perfect size to hold all of your necessities (Especially your Jill and Ally mask) while you're out shopping or with your friends! At the same time it is one of the most trendy items in the accessories market. What a great gift to give one of your friends too!"

This waist bag also comes in black.

Rimowa Essential Cabin S

The RHONY alum revealed, "My number one pet peeve is when my luggage wheels get stuck on the carpet in the airports. It is so annoying.  This cute & trendy Rimowa Suitcase is the answer to all my prayers. Not only is it lightweight and practical, the wheels are oversized and make your luggage move like a well oiled machine. Your new luggage will literally 'glide' with the greatest of ease."

Saks Fifth Avenue White Truffle Cheddar Cheese Popcorn

The Bravolebrity said, "Now who doesn't love truffle? The perfect combination of flavors for somebody who loves a savory snack. This gift also gives a big bang for the buck. With the SAKS Brand on it…it is definitely for your fancier friends! I know that a gift like this would definitely be the way to my heart if I got it!"

Real Housewife in Training Baseball Cap

The RHONY OG said, "It isn't easy to be chosen as an Official Real Housewife…it takes training! The perfect accessory to buy as a gift for your favorite Bravo or Housewife fan in your life. Although it's so cute, you may want one for yourself too!"

E!: What is your best advice for gift giving this holiday season?
JZ: My best piece of advice for this upcoming holiday season is that it's all in the packaging and presentation! This is one of the only times that it's what's on the outside counts! A gift is about the thought, so let them see your love from the outside in the beautiful wrapping and presentation.

E!: What's a gift you've received that you get so much use out of?
JZ: I received the Dyson Airwrap one Hanukkah and I use it almost everyday! It's so easy and quick and doesn't burn my hair like a curling iron can.  A great gift for someone who loves the blowout look and wants to create it at home.
