November 29th, 2018
Every year I want to do a gift guide but I never seem to find the time. Well, 2018 is the year I will finally put out my own gift guide for the holidays! I always love looking through other blogs to see what is on their lists! My first gift guide is for the ladies, feel free to forward this on to a loved one who may be stuck on ideas for what to get you for Christmas! Maybe you are like me and do some shopping for yourself ahead of time because you just can’t resist! Enjoy! ox
I love this saddle bag… I already own a bag from Cuyana and I love it! I have had it for about 5 years and it still looks new. If any of my friends/family are reading this and want to pool their money together to get this bag for my birthday, that would be amazing! 😉
2. Personalized calendar from Artifact Uprising
This has been on my list for a few years, I plan on ordering this calendar as a present for my husband. I bought a few books a few years ago and was very impressed with the quality. I have always loved the calendars, they are the perfect size with beautiful fonts and lovely quality.
3. Blanket scarf
These scarf has amazing reviews and comes in many colours. I would love to own one of these as I hate being cold!
4. Fair isle Mittens
These are really cute and look so comfortable. I love the print, they would be picture for winter!
5. YSL Tint-in-Balm
I have a few of these, I would definitely recommend getting one! I don’t like wearing lipstick all the time but I do like to add some colour to my lips so this is the best product. It is a bit pricier so it’s a good gift as some women may not want to spend too much on it but once she has it she will love it! It lasts a long time and comes in a beautiful case.
6. Trinket Dishes
These would look so pretty in a bedroom or bathroom. I have a few of these from Anthropologie and I adore them.
7. The Kombucha Shop
I actually saw this pitch on Shark Tank… anyone else love this show as much as I do? I was impressed with the owner, she even got an offer and accepted it! I think it’s a reasonable price for a kit to make kombucha tea that is supposed to be very good for you.
8. Letters for a year of gratitude
I think more people (including myself) need to practice the art of gratitude more often. I like the idea of letters for a year… 52 letters! This would be a great gift for someone special or for yourself.
9. Everlane – The leather zip pouch
Who doesn’t need a new pouch? It comes in 6 colours to choose from. I would love one of these because my Longchamp bag is a disaster most of the time. You can use this as a clutch too! If you aren’t familiar with Everlane, be sure to check this brand out…they partner with the best, ethical factories around the world. They breakdown their price on their website. So many amazing reviews on their products – I bought a coat 3 years ago, I’m very impressed with their quality.
10. Brand and Iron Candle
I purchased this candle when I heard about the Jillian Harris x Etsy Collection, I received it and I love the smell! It smell like Christmas but not overpowering. I don’t usually buy candles and I don’t like perfume so it takes a lot for me to like certain scents.
11. Cocoon coat
Unfortunately I don’t have this particular coat but this one is on my wishlist (fingers crossed I get this)!! I own many things from J.Crew including a wool coat, I love the quality of the coat. I always read all the reviews first but I already read many for the Cocoon coat and it sounds like a great purchase!
11. Le Pliage Neo Nylon Tote
This is one of my favourite pieces that I own. It is a handbag by Longchamp, I picked up a navy/navy combo a few years ago and I use it every day. There is an option to get one with a should strap, you can see it here.
12. The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
I asked one of my good friends which book she would recommend as I wanted to add a book to the gift guide but I didn’t read a book this year! Not good! She told me this book was amazing and it was her favourite this year so I will be adding this to my list of books to read!
I will be sharing more gift guides over the next few weeks! Please leave a comment to let me know of any items that you think should be added to a gift guide!
