Caroline tran “Editing the Christmas gift guide always puts me in the mood for the festive season. I mean, it’s basically like shopping for everything I’m coveting, with no limitations,” says BAZAAR’s market editor, who has curated a lust-worthy selection of gifts, gadgets and grand gestures to suit even the fussiest of recipients, from page 110. All I want for Christmas is … “a Balenciaga Bazar bag, satin slides from The Row, a Cartier diamond pendant necklace and a CJ Hendry artwork”. My advice for shopping for the person who has it all is … “to think about things they want before they know they want them.
