For our annual gift guide, asked contributors and assorted luminaries to tell us what's high on their holiday wish list -- and what charity they'd like their friends to support.

What's on their wish lists?

Wendy Schmidt, President of The Schmidt Family Foundation, advancing the development of clean energy and wiser use of natural resources.
On her list: A 14K Gold Cuff Bracelet Python Pattern from Amara Gold at $1,500

I'd love to give or receive this stunning bracelet made from 100% recycled gold. This product of recycled material is not only beautiful but also durable, and highly resistant to scratches and dents, so it will last for generations to come: a gift of luxury you can feel good about giving. Recycled gold, diamond, and other jewelry is an important new industry in a world running out of places to mine gold, and where we understand the extreme environmental impacts of metals mining--on land and ecosystems, water resources, and air quality. We can help reduce the world's demand for mined gold by supporting the demand for recycled gold in products like jewelry.
