For the first time in years I was able to get my holiday shopping done by the first week of December. To be truthful though, I didn’t have much of a choice since we are playing hookie over the holidays and heading to Mexico next week!
I love watching a loved one open a gift while knowing they are going to love it! I take my gift shopping very seriously and put a lot of thought and energy into finding that perfect gift.
If you need some last minute inspiration for your BFF, sister, mother – anyone at all, I have put together a list of amazing gifts she’s bound to love! I have linked all of these items for you and kept the price to $50.00 and under.
I have ranted and raved about the Indigo Reading Socks before and that is only because they are truly FANTASTIC! I have 4 different styles and colors and I just absolutely love them so much! They are perfect for wearing around the house during the cold months or even with a pair of Hunters if you are brave enough to venture outdoors. I have actually worn them ice skating a few times also to keep my toes warm. The woman’s ones are $34.50 and they also come in men’s sizing and kid’s sizing so they are a great buy for the whole family. My secret Santa got a pair of white ones this year from me!
I love things that transition and have multiple purposes which is why I am so in love with the Kate Spade Cameron Street Card Holder. You can stash your ID, some plastic and cash in here for a night out or you can use it for business cards. When handing out a business card, I would rather have a cute, professional little holder than pull out a stained and crumpled card that has been living either on the bottom of my bag or in a side pocket. The Cameron Street is leather and comes in black, twilight (navy) and shimmer blue (light blue) and is $50.00. There is also a less expensive/older model that is still in some stores and available online – Highland Drive which is faux metallic leather and comes in anthracite (dark brown), sapphire and a soft rose gold. The Highland Drive collection is $35.00
Be honest… is there a better combination than Beyoncé and Topshop? When Ivy Park was launched last spring, I went crazy for it! I own a few sweaters and a pair of leggings already and they are the most comfortable lounge pieces I have ever put on my body. I got a serious Black Friday deal at The Bay on the Logo Hoodie (this is on sale right now for $52.00) The Logo Sweatshirt is everything you want in a crew neck and the material is heavenly! Right now at The Bay the Logo Sweatshirt is $42.00 and comes in light grey and a dark teal.
If anyone out there wants to get me a little something this year, I will gladly accept a pair of the Leather & Faux Pearl gloves by Karl Lagerfeld in a size small. These are so adorable and functional for the winter! They are currently being sold at The Bay for $49.00 and come in either small or large. This is a huge sale right now as they are usually priced at $98.00!! Please please buy me a pair, I’ve been a good girl this year!!
If she’s sneaking a kiss under the mistletoe or getting ready to kiss 2017 goodbye let her do it in style with MAC’s limited edition Snow Ball Mini Lipstick Kit for $34.50. The shades in this kit are so beautiful and come with: Just Beaming! (a frosty pale gold with a high gloss finish), Tenor Voice (a matte true classic red) and Candy Cane (a matte intense blue red) And the sequin silver bag – so adorable!
Pom-pom beanies are everywhere you look right now and if you own one, you understand why! I used to think my UGGs were my ride-or-die Canadian winter accessory but it is a strong tossup right now. I picked up my Boulder Beanie Bunny Ball CC Beanie directly from Colorado Chick online for $16.00US (plus shipping) but you can find the Wilfred Lommel Slouchy Hat at Aritzia for $50.00 or the Rory from Rudsak for $68.00
For the on-the-goer to the fitness freak – S’well bottles has her covered. The insulated bottles range in both size and price but they all are designed to keep hot beverages hot for 12 hours and cold beverages cold for 24 hours. The 9oz bottles start to $25.00, 17oz at $35.00 and 25oz at $45.00. (My aunt actually used her to keep her medication refrigerated inside when traveling… genius!) You can order S’well directly from their website and personalize them or you can find them at Chapters/ Indigo or at The Bay
I hope these ideas were helpful for you! What are you hoping to get from Santa this year?
