Last week, we wrote about must-have winter gear, and even though Wednesday is Halloween, the holidays will be here faster than we know it.

In July, Target announced it would be pairing up with Neiman Marcus to create a limited-edition collection featuring 24 fabulous designers. This 54-piece collection features clothing, accessories, home goods, gadgets and other products, which makes it perfect for anyone on your list. Soon enough, we’ll be singing Christmas tunes or blasting Adam Sandler’s “The Hanukkah Song” on repeat, and sipping Peppermint Mochas out of Starbucks’ holiday cups.

If there’s one thing to get you in the holiday spirit now, it’s this. Here are ten of the items at the top of my list:

Altuzarra Double Old Fashion Glasses, $49.99 for a set of 4, and Shaker, $49.99
Hosting a cocktail party? Ditch the red cups for more classy glassware. This set looks so luxe and is sure to liven up your home bar supplies.

Altuzarra Cocktail Set

Brian Atwood Leather Gloves, $49.99
Because winter isn’t complete without a pair of fancy gloves.

Carolina Herrera Travel Bag, $39.99 for a set of 3
One pouch for important cards, one for cash and one for daily essentials in the cutest prints make these pouches virtually impossible to misplace.

Derek Lam Slippers, $49.99
Leopard print is huge for fall and winter, and these are perfect for lounging around the house.

Lela Rose Top, $69.99
This flower and lace motif top is perfect with a pair of black skinnies and a bright blazer for a dressy-casual holiday party look.

Marc Jacobs Pouches, $69.99 each
These metallic card holders are perfect stocking stuffers and great Hanukkah gifts for that one friend that is hard to shop for.

Prabal Gurung Cape, $79.99
The perfect topper to a sweater dress, just add tights and heels. Plus, I love the hint of wintery sparkle.

Proenza Schouler Sweatshirt, $29.99
Patterned crewneck sweatshirts are on trend year-round wear now with dark skinnies and boots and in the spring with a mini skirt and ballet flats.

Robert Rodriguez Dress, $99.99
A fashion-forward designer dress for under $100 should be on every fashionista’s list.

Tracy Reese Blouse, $79.99
Baroque and sequins were two huge trends on the Fall 2012 runways, and this blouse takes the t-shirt to a whole new level.

Don't tell her that print is dying--she's already made the switch to public relations. As a Midwest girl, winter happens approximately 80% of the year, so she knows a thing or two about a good pair of snow boots. She lives for summer weather (even though she can never tan), Boy Meets World reruns, and an unhealthy addiction to dark chocolate and online shopping. She's a die-hard Chicago sports fan, even though she's well aware the Cubs always end up in last place every year.
