Designers want more than peace, love, and happiness this holiday season. Like material things! So we asked several designers: If you could receive one item this Christmas, what would it be? Scroll down for their answers.

Francisco Costa, women's creative director, Calvin Klein: "A painting by artist Christopher Brooks, a first edition of Robert Mapplethorpe's Flowers book, a Calvin Klein Collection black wool and cashmere slash pocket overcoat, and black super-soft cashmere scarf."






Rodarte's Kate Mulleavy: "Antique red and white glass mushroom tree ornaments." And Laura Mulleavy: "A velveteen rabbit."





Michael Kors: "A large Jackson Pollack painting, my own island, and a diary free of appointments."






Jason Wu: "I have always been a huge fan of Rene Gruau. In fact, when I was young I first aspired to be an illustrator. To this day, his use of bold colors and dramatic strokes inspire many of my collections. It would be amazing to locate an original print!"





Donna Karan: "TIME OFF ... "








Alexander Wang: "A really big bathroom in my new apartment!"








Maria Cornejo: "A George Sherlock sofa for the living room."








Christian Louboutin: "Barry Diller’s plane."






Narciso Rodriguez: "A set of small and large bronze egg vases and lanterns from Ted Muehling."






Tim Hamilton: "I would love a vacation to somewhere remote like the Maldives or the Caribbean."
