Even amidst the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, these cold winter months can feel a tad gloomy at times. That's why I love to give (and receive) gifts that bring some warmth and cheer to everyday life, whether it's through a vibrant accessory, some sparkling baubles, or a quirky, smile-inducing trinket. Here are a few items I'm hoping to see under my tree this year:

I've had my eye on this red Loeffler Randall "Shooter" bag for quite some time, and now that it's on sale (for $245), it's moved on up to the top of my wish list. Its punchy color and structured shape would pop against a dark outfit on a dreary winter day.
You can't ring in the New Year properly without a good Champagne toast, and these Juliska "Amalia" flutes ($115 for the pair) would make any bottle of bubbly taste extra festive.
I'm a big fan of Elva Fields' one-of-a-kind statement necklaces. This "Love of Ages Past" necklace ($268) in vibrant emerald (2013's Pantone color) is a guaranteed showstopper for holiday cocktail parties.
Bundling up in the cold weather would be so much more glamorous if I had this Ann Taylor faux mink scarf, which is soft, sumptuous, and a steal at $58.
How adorable are these stackable hedgehog measuring cups from Anthropologie ($36)? They'd bring the perfect dose of quirky charm to my kitchen countertop.
