What does Cosmo EIC and Hearst Magazines editorial director Joanna Coles have lined up for the Ho-Ho times? “On Christmas Day I like to prepare a vast British feast with all sorts of peculiar Elizabethan foods that you should really only ingest once a year,” she told us. “We invite the same friends every year and the evening always dissolves into spontaneous performances from our favorite Broadway shows. We’re taking this year to the next level, so everyone’s coming prepared with their own ‘Hamilton’ rap.” Can we come?

JoCo fills us is in on some of her favorite gift suggestions for the holiday season…

iPad Pro “It’s like a movie studio in your hand, and everyone has to make more video, right? Plus, it’s ideal for reading magazines on your Texture app.”

Sonya Dakar Flash Facial  “I’m giving these to my busy working friends who like me have no time to actually have a treatment at a spa. Instead this is a facial in a jar and takes 60 seconds. Boom.”
