Everyone needs a little help when it comes to holiday shopping. I know that I always dread the sit down my hubby and I have where we go over who is on our holiday shopping list and what to get them – not because I hate shopping, but because the question of “what do we get her/him” often comes up. Well, I am here to help you all out. I have brainstormed and searched for the perfect gift ideas for those special people in your lives and am breaking them down for you over the next week.
First lets talk about that special girl in your life – your bestie, your sister, your girlfriend, your mom… I can promise you that there is something on this gifting guide for every girl.
Who doesn’t have a resolution to start off a new year with more joy and gratitude? I love this book because it is more than just a typical journal/notebook. It is a book that prompts you with great idea to recognize what brings you joy in your life. Your favourite places in the world; Something you enjoy doing by yourself; Movies you watch again and again… Set her year off right with an inspirational notebook!
Every girl likes a little sparkle, right? This is such a cute gift set! The handset lilac stone pendant and matching earrings are a simple and delicate gift that she can wear everyday. Plus, these come in gift-ready boxes so all you need is a bow and you are set!
3 – Slippers
There is nothing worse than cold feet in the winter. These slippers will not only keep her toes toasty warm AND cute, but they will keep her comfortable with cushy memory foam soles!
4 – Beauty Blender
The best way to blend that concealer, foundation, and contouring! I don’t know what I did without this blender – it is just makes everything so smooth! They need to be replaced every now and then, so they make the perfect stocking stuffer!
5 – Blanket Scarf
There is no doubt that this my fav cold-weather accessory. I wear a blanket scarf almost everyday from fall until spring and they have become my favourite gift! Pair it with a cute pair of earrings or a pretty mug and you are all set…at least that would be my perfect gift!

6 – Tech Gloves
Just because it is cold doesn’t mean texting or posting to Instagram can wait…I mean, this is our life now, right? Grab her a pair of gloves that are double duty – cute, keep her hands warm AND practical to use with her phone. I LOVE these Steve Madden pair for the colour combo (I could just wear everything pink and grey!) but there are some cute buffalo plaid pairs too!
7 – Oil Diffuser
There is nothing better than having your space smelling like aromatherapy. It is relaxing, inspiring and therapeutic. Treat your fav girl to an at-home spa feel with a gorgeous oil diffuser. I am loving this jewel ton diffuser from Saje Natural Wellness. This one from Nordstrom is perfect for the minimalists! My go-to oils from Saje are Energy, Yoga and Stress Relief.
Kick the hot mess of charging cords and get her something really pretty and practical. I love this charging station for my desk at work and my night table at home. There are so many cute ones that can hold just your phone or even your apple watch too! I really like this one for my desk at work.
Who doesn’t want new makeup for the holidays? Treat her to a great new pallete in gorgeous neutrals. This one pallete can take her from everyday chic to glamourous. I love this dusky rose pallete for its gorgeous browns, pearls and taupes, but if she is into colour, grab a more vibrant set!
10 – Lash Pouch
The cutest carry-all pouch can keep her purse organized! Use it for makeup, snacks (you laugh, but I always have them in my bag!), a passport and document pouch… the sky is the limit. I love cute pouches like this and they are great to use as a gift bag when you fill them with goodies! Stuff it with lipgloss, gum, mascara, nail polish and some tissue paper and you have a perfect ready-to-go gift!
11 – Watch
Such a classic piece that is more of an accessory than just something to tell time. I love my JORD watch – they are gorgeous watches made of wood, which means they are super durable but lightweight. The Cassia in Walnut and Vintage Rose is my fav. I also love Fossil watches, especially this one with its gorgeous navy strap and rose quartz face.
12 – Graphic Mug
That boss babe in your life? That mama who is giving it her all? That new bride to be? Pick her up a special mug this season that will make her smile everytime she grabs for that perfect cup of joe!
13 – Thermal Jammies
Do I even need to convince you on these? I own 2 pair and love them. They are fitted, so go up a size if you want a comfy fit. There may have been a week or two where I changed into these as soon as I got home from work and wore them all evening. Everyone can use new Christmas jammies and these don’t disappoint.
I hope this gift guide helps sparks some ideas for your holiday gifting!!
Stay tuned for the next gift guide for those hard – to -shop – for – men in our lives.
