Great Gift Ideas for Everyone on your List
1. Quo Holiday Gift Sets from Shoppers Drug Mart – From $3-$130
For the beauty lovers on your list, Quo Cosmetics has a variety of limited edition holiday makeup sets. From great stocking stuffers like their Christmas beauty ornaments and to full eyeshadow/blush palettes and brush sets, Shopper’s Drug Mart has a full range of beauty essentials, bath and pampering baskets, and more, all decked out in festive packaging for the beauty queen on your list.
2. Swarovski Jewelry – $75 and up
Jewelry is perfect way to add a little sparkle to anyone’s day! Swarovski has a wide range to earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings to surprise and delight that special someone on Christmas day. Their crystal jewelry makes the perfect gift, whether you’re looking for something elegant or trendy, Swarovski has a full assortment of beautiful jewelry pieces. One piece that I’m loving at the moment is this martini charm necklace (above) that’s both festive, fun, and beautiful!
3. This Works Deep Sleep Spray – $29
We all know how busy and crazy it gets around Christmas. So why not give the gift of sleep? The Deep Sleep Spray by This Works is one of my beauty favourites, and a few spritz on your pillow before bed them will help you get those z’s in no time. It contains a super blend of lavender, vetivert and camomile that calm both mind and body that soothes you to sleep in no time.
4. Tinggly Experience Gift Boxes $79-$289
If you’re looking to create a memory that will last a lifetime, Tinggly is the perfect gift idea! (shown above). More than just a present, Tinggly allows you to give a unique travel experience, whether it’s zip lining through the Amazon or having a chocolate tasting in London. When you purchase an experience box, it buys you an entire collection of experiences for your loved one to choose from. These experiences are available in around 100 countries across the globe and the recipients have 5 years to book their dream experience, so they have plenty of time to plan their adventure! They’ll receive a gift box with a beautiful booklet of all the experiences they have to choose from, so on Christmas day they’ll still have something fun to unwrap as well!
5. Chocolate from Purdys Chocolatiers – from $5-$50
So you can never go wrong with chocolate, especially if it’s from Purdys! They have everything from stocking stuffers to full-out gifts, so take your pick! There’s something perfect for everyone. Some of my favourite gift ideas include their Chocolate Survival Kit, which is the perfect pick-me-up for any emergency and their pre-wrapped boxes of chocolates are a total time saver! And how um, how cute are these hedgehog socks they have this year?
6. Sweatshirt from Tuck Shop Trading Co. – $88
For a bit of Canadiana flavour, Tuck Shop Trading Co. makes thoughtfully considered lifestyle goods designed in Canada and ethically manufactured. I’ve been practically living in their cotton sweatshirts since fall, which are oh-so-cozy and irresistibly soft and warm. They also have a range of adorable neighbourhood toques that are a must if you’re a Toronto a native!
7. L’Occitane Advent Calendars $59 & $134
Advent Calendars are one of my favorite gifts because they give a little something every day until Christmas! L’Occitane has not one, but two great beauty advent calendars this year, their Signature Advent Calendar featured in the top picture for $59, and their Luxury Advent Calendar featured in the last picture for $134. Each day you get a little piece of beauty, featuring 24 surprising and delightful treats from fragrances to irresistible body and face care. They also have other great gift sets too at every price point, and you can check them out here.
8. Chuck Hughes’ Hot Pepper Sauce from Pusateri’s – $8
For the foodie you’re shopping for, Pusateri’s has teamed up with Canadian celeb chef, Chuck Hughes’ for a variety of products, including his Hot Pepper Spread, which is a perfect for adding some heat to your holiday recipes. In addition, their free seasonal magazine has great ideas for recipes, foodie gift ideas, and more, so make sure to pick one of those up in store!
10. Foreo Toothbrush available at Shoppers Drug Mart – $199
And I’m sure there’s always someone on your list who wants a practical gift (in my family that’s my mom), and the Foreo Toothbrush is a great gift option for them. Not only is it a useful gift, but a pretty cool (and kinda techie) one as well, with a unique silicone brush head toothbrush that cleans and whitens, while Sonic Pulse Technology effectively brushes teeth and gums in a gentle manner while still being tough of plaque.
11. Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Face Wipes – $13
With all the getting dolled up for Christmas parties, these Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Face Wipes would make the perfect stocking stuffer. These Tea Tree Face Wipes are perfect for removing makeup and refreshing the skin. They contain Tea Tree Oil with the calming properties of Copaiba Oil to cleanse and soothe acne prone skin. Another great gift idea from Thursday Plantation are their essential oils! They’re a great multi-tasking gift that can be used as natural cold remedies, or even just to help you relax after a crazy holiday season.
12. Holiday Blanket from La Vie En Rose – $50
Of course cute PJ’s and sexy lingerie first come to mind when you think of La Vie En Rose, but one thing I’ve been loving is their classic holiday blanket. There’s nothing quite as nice as snuggling up on the couch to watch Christmas movies and it just wouldn’t be the same without a cozy holiday blanket (shown below) to snuggle under.
13. Givenchy Interdit Perfume – $112
Smell is the strongest of the five senses and can evoke happy memories and warm thoughts, so it makes the perfect memorable gift. Givenchy’s Interdit is one of my new favourite scents, it’s woody, floral fragrance for women with a sensual touch that makes it oh-so charming.
Hope this gift guide helped with your Christmas shopping!
