Continuing along with my Holiday Gift Guides for 2021 (super early edition!), let’s get going with this exciting list of ideas for her … or for you. Because let’s be honest, most of us here are shopping for ourselves … I see you, I feel you. This may just be my favourite gift guide I’ve curated yet! So here we ho-ho go!! (Did that work? Yes? No??)
Unstoppable Diamond Bracelet
Price: $132 USD
For any and all of us who are being pushed to their breaking point and are fighting through everyday, I think this beautiful, dainty bracelet packs a powerful message and reminder mantra to ourselves that we are strong, we are resilient, we are powerful. Give this to your mom, girlfriend, partner (or gift to yourself) and let them know you think they are pretty kick ass tough.

Big Picture Farm Goat Caramels
Price: $22 USD
Going from the big ticket item above to a smaller but equally special idea. I came across this adorable family who quit the “big life” in the city and moved to a beautiful farm in Vermont to raise goats and make handmade goat milk candies and caramels. From the packaging to the special story, I was swept away by this small business and knew I’d be adding them to my Holiday Gift Guide.
Price: $138 USD / 138 CAD
Shackets are EVERYWHERE right now and if you live in a milder winter climate or are looking for the coziest sweater/shirt/jacket to lounge around your house or cabin in, this Roots Shacket in Tuscany is my favourite. Look for deals around Black Friday when Roots often offers 30-40% off everything to snag the best deal.

Fishers Finery Silk Pillowcase
Price: $79.00 USD
I’ve recently been enlightened to the great benefits of silk pillowcases … I know, I know, what rock did I live under? At first skeptical, but these pillowcases deliver a beautifully luxurious sleeping environment – temperature control, no pillow face, better for skin, less wrinkles, and no bed hair or damaged hair. They are pretty miraculous! After doing a TON of research, Fishers Finery delivers the best quality product at the best price. Customize to your preference, pillow size and a plethora of colours, this is a luxurious gift that most women wouldn’t likely splurge on for themselves. A similar item for the lady on your list with long hair are these Silk Skinny Scrunchies ($30), that offer a plethora of benefits for the hair – no damage, no pulling, no kinking, no “hair headaches”. These are on my wishlist for sure this year!
Manitobah Mukluks Moccasins
Price: $79.99 USD / 79.99 CAD
Nothing beats a great quality pair of slippers as a Christmas gift, especially ones that will last you, basically, a lifetime. This Canadian, Indigenous owned business, Manitobah Mukluks are famous within Canada for their durability and style. There are tons of colours and styles to choose from, but I personally love the Tipi style moccasin in Charcoal. Not only are you supporting an Indigenous owned company that makes a great impact within the Indigenous communities here in Canada, but you’re getting an heirloom quality, beautiful pair of slippers.

Price: $29.00 USD / 39.00 CAD
Ever spent a panicked thirty minutes trying to locate your keys? Yes? Well, you need an Apple AirTag. No? Well, you need an Apple AirTag for when you do. Don’t forget to buy the Apple key chain ($45) to keep your AirTag safe! You can obviously use this on your keys, but the options here are endless. Add it to your purse, your bike, your wallet, your kids backpack, for easy retrieval.
Draper James x Lands’ End PJ Set
Price: starts at $59.95 USD
I am a major pyjama snob … major. I have honed my snobbery for years, amassing a great collection of pyjamas and I can honestly say no one does PJs better than Lands’ End. Their Supima Cotton nightgowns and flannel PJ sets are the comfiest, softest, highest quality, best washing pyjamas. So when they teamed up with everyone’s favourite Southern Belle, Reese Witherspoon, a match in heaven was made. Grab an oh-so-comfy pair of PJs designed with Draper James’ signature Southern charm style. Look for deals around Black Friday as Lands’ End often has incredible discounts!

Holy Sheet Mask Set
Price: $60 CAD
I like to include one beauty gift idea on these Holiday Guides, but it can be tricky to pick “one item fits all”. We all have different skin types, tones, needs and tastes so when I saw this Holy Sheet (hello name love!) gift set at Sephora, I thought it was perfect. Sheet masks are super convenient, low mess, low fuss, and I love using them as part of my self care routine during a warm bubble bath. Even better? This set includes masks for the face, hair, hands, and feet! Vegan, clean beauty formulas with recyclable, sustainable packaging make this a great beauty gift to feel good about too.

Splendies Panty Monthly Subscription
Price: $14 USD/month, free shipping
I’d say this is the one thing I’ve bought for myself this year that just continues to bring me great joy. I HATE panty shopping for four reasons. 1) Panty tables and the sales people asking if I need help picking out my OWN underwear. 2) Men shopping in the store… just, no. 3) Ordering online is a pain because you can’t feel it and 4) you always come home with one or two pairs that don’t fit. Splendies solves all this by making great quality, fun underwear at a very reasonable price (3 pairs for $14), with tons of customizations to your preferences, delivered straight to my letterbox each month. Pick your size, pick your preferences, and easily change sizes, styles, or skip a month. A great gift for yourself or your BFF or a way less stressful way for your partner to buy you lingerie without the added awkwardness of in store shopping. Lots of coupon codes are available to receive 50% off your first month you so can experiment at a low cost which size will fit you best.

Pottery Barn Stay Cozy Pillow
Price: $93.00 CAD
While sillily expensive, (hello, Pottery Barn), this gorgeous pillow will fit into any style, within any pillow pile, be it on a bed, couch, chair or cozy nook. The perfect blend of chic and fun, I have coveted this teddy bear shaggy Stay Cozy pillow for years! (Pssst: if you’re an instagrammer, it looks stunning in photos … just saying.)
