My Cart



Posted on December 21 2015

We all have those people in our lives who are sooo hard to shop for.

Those people who you try so hard to find the perfect present for, but when they open it you can’t really tell if they like it or not. You know who I’m taking about. Well, I’m here to help you out!

I’ve created 2 holiday gift guides, one for her, and one for him. I hope they give you some great ideas and help you finish your Christmas shopping knowing that everyone will love their gifts this year. 



Golden Dreams Notebook & Planner Bundle – Splurge $40 (On sale from $50!)

Handy for work, shopping lists, to do lists, notes or just doodling. And who doesn’t love metallic gold accents!? Plus, you’ll be supporting a local business. It’s a win-win!

Seche Vite Top Coat – Winners $7

I swear, this is THE BEST top coat ever. It dries SO FAST. Trust me, she needs this.

Roll Down Brown Clutch – Splurge $72

So cute and functional at the same time! It will also go with everything! Support local!

Headphones – FRENDS $199

It will be impossible not to look cool with these around her neck! The epitome of stylish headphones, plus great sound quality!

Cat Eye Sunglasses 

Every fashionista loves a good pair of cat eye sunnies! They’ll be the perfect addition to any cute winter ensemble.

Polaroid Camera – Urban Outfitters $132

Back in the day polaroids were all the rage, and they’re back, baby! She will have so much fun snapping pictures at your next holiday party!

Bite Beauty Lip Set – Sephora $29 ($64 value!)

I love a good bold lip in the winter, and there are bound to be a few shades she likes in an awesome set like this! Plus, these feel sooo nice on.

Travel Mug – Indigo $15

Chilly mornings on the way to work or school call for a hot beverage, so why not drink it out of a cup this cute? 

Statement Necklace 

She can throw this on with a t-shirt to jazz up a simple outfit, or over a dress on her way to a party. The possibilities are endless!

True North Scarf – Lilylake Knits $140

This one is near and dear to my heart. Lilylake Knits is a local company owned by my dear friend Jenny Fennell. She is so talented, and uses local Nova Scotia wool to hand-make many of her products! They’re so soft and cozy, and that may or may not be me modeling the scarf above…. ☺



Mason Jar Cocktail Shaker – Chapters $30

I was at a party recently where they had one of these mason jar cocktail shakers and my boyfriend loved it! Who knew guys liked mason jars as much as girls do?

Quadcopter – The Source $70 (On Sale from $90!)

It doesn’t matter if a guy is 10, 25, or 40 years old, all boys love remote control toys. This one has 4 rotors and can drive on the floor, climb walls and fly!

Saxx Underwear – Pseudio $33

SAXX undies are the top of the top. They have what is called an ‘ergonomic comfort pouch’ that will basically hold his boys in place, nice and snug. Mental picture alert. With every purchase of these special mustache boxers, $2 is donated to the Movember Foundation to support men’s health, so you’re getting him a great present and supporting a great cause!

Nixon Watch – Boathouse $120

Simple, classic, stylish. Perfect for any young professional.

Messenger Bag – Aldo $55

Let’s face it, we’re no longer at the age where it’s appropriate to carry around a backpack. Give your guy a sleek messenger bag instead to carry all his essentials.

Wayfarer Sunglasses – Rayban $195

Wayfarers look good on any face shape, and no matter your guy’s style, he’ll be able to rock ‘em.

Flask – Mark’s $20

For the guy who likes to drink, why not get him a flask. This one has got a deer on it, so it’s cute but still manly. 

Beard Oil – Lonewoods $22

Another great opportunity to support a local business! Lonewoods is a shop based out of Saint John, NB, offering a wide range of handcrafted grooming supplies. Made from natural ingredients, this beard oil will make a great gift for any guy! 

Fair Isle Sweater – GAP $70

How cute, right? I love a guy in an adorable patterned sweater. Enough said.

Gaming Keyboard – Best Buy $99 (Save $30!)

For the techy guy who loves to game, get him a gaming keyboard! This one has mechanical switches to give optimal speed and responsiveness, which, so I’m told, are a good thing.


So there you have it. Hopefully it was helpful, I know just writing it got the ideas flowing in my head for my own Christmas shopping! Do you have any more ideas for great holiday gifts?
