Whether belting out Christmas carols like no one is watching in front of the Barneys holiday windows, feeling so giddy about finding the perfect gift that you can hardly keep it a secret, or digging into fistfuls of Freds chocolate drizzled popcorn without abandon—we’re the first to admit that there’s just something about the holidays that makes us feel like a kid again.

So, ’tis the perfect season for the ultimate Christmas-meets-childhood-pastime mash-up, ‘Dear Santa Mad Libs.’ We asked a handful the most young-at-heart tastemakers we know—and one tastemaker toddler, to boot—to pen a fill-in-the-blank scribe to Old Saint Nick, recapping their naughties and niceties from the year and confessing which presents they’re really hoping show up under the tree. Santa, if you’re reading this—and we hope you are—take notes, and then call upon your most valuable “elf”—aka Barneys.com—to cross these deserving recipients off your list.

Dear Santa,

I’ve been awfully  blessed  this year, so I’d really love to see  my family  under the tree. I was especially on my best behavior when  I built a reading room in an Oklahoma City elementary school , so don’t you think I deserve  an NBA Championship , too? But let’s not talk about that time I  got a technical foul or two . Yikes. It’d be great if you could just look the other way on that one.

Oh, and since it’s going to be a long, cold winter,  some games in warm weather  would be great, too. And Santa, since I know you’ve traveled far, I’ve left some  cookies and carrots for the reindeer  for you by the  fireplace .

Happy Holidays!

Dear Santa,

I’ve been awfully  gluten intolerant  this year, so I’d really love to see  a year’s supply of Bio-K (strawberry)   under the tree. I was especially on my best behavior when  —always—  so don’t you think I deserve  a personal chef  too? But let’s not talk about that time I  smuggled a Souplantation cornbread (or three)  in my purse. Yikes. It’d be great if you could just look the other way on that one.

Oh, and since it’s going to be a long, cold winter,  a coat from The Row  would be great, too. And Santa, since I know you’ve traveled far, I’ve left some  Ibuprofen  for you by the  sleeping Pom .

All my love,

Dear Santa,

I’ve been awfully  cheeky  this year, so I’d really love to see  Saint Laurent boots  under the tree. I was especially on my best behavior when  I MET KIM KARDASHIAN  in Miami last week, so don’t you think I deserve  a Valextra briefcase FOR KEEPING UP WITH THE KARDASHIANS  too? But let’s not talk about that time I  fell asleep during The Hunger Games . Yikes. It’d be great if you could just look the other way on that one.

Oh, and since it’s going to be a long, cold winter,  a Lanvin coat  would be great, too. And Santa, since I know you’ve traveled far, I’ve left some  tequila shots , and  all of Oribe’s hair products  for you by the  Precious Moments Figurines  I’ve been collecting.

Sayonara,

Dear Santa,

I’ve been awfully  naughty-but-fabulous  this year, so I’d really love to see  a soupcon of Saint Laurent under the tree. I was especially on my best behavior when  everyone else got thoroughly smashed , so don’t you think I deserve  a Valentino sweater , too? But let’s not talk about that time I  swung from the chandelier at the office party . Yikes. It’d be great if you could just look the other way on that one.

Oh, and since it’s going to be a long, cold winter,  a Valentino coat  would be great, too. And Santa, since I know you’ve traveled far, I’ve left some  Freds edibles  for you by the  Fornasetti escritoire .

Dear Santa,

I’ve been awfully  personable  this year, so I’d really love to see  a magical dress  under the tree. I was especially on my best behavior when  I shot the holiday cover for Barneys , so don’t you think I deserve  a  dazzling play tent  too? But let’s not talk about that time I  refused to go to bed . Yikes. It’d be great if you could just look the other way on that one.

Oh, and since it’s going to be a long, cold winter,  a Moncler parka  would be great, too. And Santa, since I know you’ve traveled far, I’ve left some  hazelnut bark  for you by the  fire escape .

Lots Of Love,
