Holiday Gift Guide 2017

Hi everyone! We are well into the month of December and holiday festivities have begun! I have put together a little gift guide for this year.

This is honestly one of my favourite times of the year because everything is so festive and I can spend time with those who are important to me. I love gifting others and seeing their reactions, it is one of the best parts of the holidays.

On another note, I have you covered for gift ideas if you’re stuck on finding the perfect gift or are in a last-minute hurry. I hope you enjoy, and find this useful. But most importantly, enjoy the holidays with whomever you are spending it with.

1. Beer of the Month Club: The perfect gift for any guy in my opinion. It gets shipped to the door every month and he can venture into beers he never thought he’d taste! 

2. Briefcase: This is the Matt and Nat Tom – Black bag. It is vegan and a sizeable bag that is sleek and great for anyone that has to carry a laptop or papers around. This is for the go-getter, fashion enthusiast in your life! 

3. Jack Black No Pain Shave Kit: A great gift for any man in your life! It ranges on the more luxurious side of shaving kits and is for those in your life who you have a closer relationship with. 

4. Whiskey Cubes: For any whiskey enthusiast. A bottle of their favourite whiskey with these cubes is the perfect gift, enough said!

5. Cologne: For anyone who you are more intimate with. It is a great gift and this particular scent smells divine. Perhaps there is a cologne that he has been eyeing or you know he would like.  

*And of course, tickets to their favourite sports team (or the theatre, ballet, etc…) is a fantastic gift too!



1. Scarves (or anything cozy, really): It is winter after all, and one thing that is great about receiving big and cozy scarves, is that they’re like blankets that you can appropriately wear in public. A great present for anyone living in really cold places!

2. Skincare: this is just one out of thousands of examples for a present idea, but if there is anyone in your life who is obsessed with skincare, this is a great present for them. Serum is so important and a staple in anyone’s skin regimen. I could go on forever about why you should get this for the skincare fanatic in your life, but I think it speaks for itself.

3. Jewelry: You can never go wrong with jewelry, and due to popular belief it doesn’t always have to be from Tiffany’s to make a girl happy (although Tiffany’s is a fabulous option indeed). This jewelry is perfectly price ranged, is supporting a small business and is for all of the feminists out there!

4. Makeup: This a fantastic gift, although more personal. Although, no one can ever go wrong with a highlight palette; and this palette from Huda Beauty is seriously up there. Any makeup enthusiast would love receiving this, on christmas morning.

5. Perfume: This is such a personalized gift because there are so many scents on the market, although this Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb is a beautiful scent. Though, if you know their favourite scents this is a fantastic gift.

1. Wine of the month club: Perfect for anyone who not only loves wine but loves to host often. 

 2.  Cocktail recipe book: For anyone looking to kick up their party cocktail game up to the next level. 

 3. Marble cheese cutter: For any cheese enthusiast who loves having a good overall home and party aesthetic (this cuts each piece to the same size every time)!

 4. Candles: A) Who doesn’t love a good smelling candle? B) Have you read option “A”? 

 5. A jigger for the bar cart: For anyone who is putting a bar cart together in their new home or loves a cute jigger to make drinks with!

These are my top five books to get people for the holidays! You can never go wrong with a book that suits the person you’re gifting. Whether, they love poetry (Rupi Kaur anyone?), are always whipping up something new in the kitchen (I even included a plant-based cookbook set for those who are vegan or don’t eat meat), need some inspiring motivation, or even love fashion and blogging! 

 1. Tribe of Mentors

 2. The Subtle Art of not Giving a F*ck

 3. Cravings

 4. The Career Code

 5. Oh She Glows Boxed Set
