By Lili Gurry | December 10, 2019 | Style & Beauty

Choosing the perfect holiday gift is not for the faint of heart. With endless possibilities to choose from and a long list to fill, holiday shopping is surely a daunting affair. This year, ease through your gift giving woes with this guide from Philadelphia’s top influencers. These premium presents are sure to please everyone on your list and leave you feeling like a top-notch gift connoisseur.


The Influencer: Anita Oh, @anita_oh

The Gift: Bose SoundLink Mini Portable Speaker, $179

“While jewelry and other gifts are always appreciated, the Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth portable speaker is a thoughtful and practical gift. It’s perfect for the person in your life who loves music and podcasts and is always on-the-go. I had this pumping a playlist on a hike recently with a group of friends, and it kept the energy up!”

Bose, King of Prussia Mall,


The Influencer: Lianna Liss, @lianna_liss

The Gift: Slip Silk Pillowcase, $85

“After years of waking up, looking in the mirror and seeing my messy hair, along with the creases on my face, I switched to a Slip pillowcase. Not only does it eliminate bed head but it is 100% silk. Unlike cotton, it doesn’t pull moisture or skincare products from your skin. The perfect gift for your girlfriends and fellow skincare junkies!”

Sephora, 1714 Chestnut St.,


The Influencers: Alex and Mike, @alexandmike

The Gift: Wool Topcoat, $240

“You can't go wrong with a classic wool topcoat. It should be a staple in everyone's closet. It instantly elevates any look. No matter what age you’re shopping for, this is a solid gift during the holiday season!”

Abercrombie, Cherry Hill Mall,


The Influencer: Sabir Peele, @mensstylepro

The Gift: Rolex Datejust Watch, $6,800

“The gift of more time is what everybody wants, and, a vintage timepiece is the perfect way to jump start your appreciation for time. I've been looking feverishly stalking vintage Rolex watches. With a slightly smaller than average 36mm case, an engine turn bezel and clean date complication makes watches like the Datejust quietly standout. Plus, I'd be able to pass it down to my son one day. So, if Santa is reading this, hook me up...please.”
