While some of you have already got all your gifts wrapped up for the holidays, there are some of us who still can’t decide what to get for our friends or colleagues. So we’ve rounded up a few last minute gift ideas. Happy Holidays from our family to yours!
Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream All-Over Miracle Oil ($39 CDN) is a last-minute gift option for the beauty lover who has it all and wants it all. This three-in-one product is a fit for body, hair and face. It leaves skin feeling hydrated and smooth all day long without any greasy residue.
Stocking stuffer emergency? A luxury product worth every penny is Moroccanoil’s Luminous Hairspray in Extra Strong ($24 CDN). With winter around the corner, who wouldn’t want a frizz-free day? I’d say this is gold for the beauty lover. You’re welcome.
ALEX AND ANI
You can’t go wrong with jewelry. Trust me on this one. I’d say the ALEX AND ANI holiday collection might just be the gift you’re looking for. Sparkle, twinkle and all things festive. The Crystal Infusion collection is just the right amount of sparkle that can be worn all year around. My favorite piece is the Lava Expandable Necklace with Swarovski crystals ($98 CDN). It is available in 14kt gold plated and .925 sterling silver metals, each color-infused Swarovski crystal hanging from the chain. If that doesn’t catch your fancy (ahem, we can’t be friends), you can check out the Retro Glam collection inspired by Old Hollywood.
Justice for Tweens
Shopping for tweens can be hard and everything you think is cool, is long off their radar. So how about some adorable clothing to snuggle in or maybe fancy party wear? Justice’s Reindeer Sleep Set ($28.90 CDN) and Reindeer Bootie Slippers ($24.90 CDN) are just too cute to ignore. You can also win her over with the festive Sequin Christmas Skater Skirt ($29.90 CDN). Available at Justice stores across Canada.
There’s always room for chocolates, right? Give the gift of sweet tooth with a box of Ferrero Rocher chocolates. It’s perfect for hostess gifts or a stocking stuffer! The Ferrero Rocher collection offers three divine confections: fine hazelnut chocolates, Rafaello crispy creamy-coconut-almond filled confections and Ferrero Rondnoir fine dark chocolates – each divine in their own unique way. A quick indulgence won’t hurt.
While winter is not officially here, you can always gift someone a comfortable pair of boots. Simply buy a gift card and you’re good to go. Cougar Boots has a wonderfully warm selection of footwear for winter. From bounty leather and fleece lining 39068 original ($225 CDN) to rubber and neoprene lining Keaton ($120 CDN), it’s like Christmas! (see what I did there!) You might just wish it were snowing, just sayin’
Winter be gone. Everyone will appreciate this next gift. ThermaCELL Heated shoe insoles ($240 CDN) provide remote controlled foot warming comfort as needed. The high-tech wireless remote gives fingertip control while feet remain comfortable in your shoe or boot through the use of a built-in thermostat. Are you wishing for winter now?
Of course the festive season means manicured hands but it is a busy season. So how about gift your friends a quick nail glam and they’ll be forever grateful. Our favorites are the KISS Nails French manicure kit ($7.99 CDN), imPRESS Manicure Glitz & Glamour kit ($7.99 CDN) and the Salon Secrets Nail Art Pro Tool kit ($9.99 CDN).
Know someone who loves the quirky TV series Dr. Who? This Dr. Who handy-dandy electronic sonic screwdriver ($34.99 CDN) is a marvelous gadget featuring button-activated light and sound effects and includes a hidden ultraviolet pen and UV light that reveals your secret writing, as well as a spare standard ink nib. You wouldn’t want them to go running about through time and space without one of these in their pockets! Come on, let’s cosplay!
juicy bamboo natural facial cleansing cloths might just be the stocking stuffer you should stock up on for friends and family. It is natural, non toxic and cruelty free. They also have the box to go, which is great for travels and you can never have enough of those.
Hyleys Slim Teas
Another great stocking stuffer that might just fit the bill is the Hyleys Slim Teas ($5.99 CDN). It is 100 percent natural Green tea made with Senna leaves and fruit flavoring that promote body cleansing, detoxification and a healthy digestive system. Slim Teas offer consumers a safe, pound-shedding alternative to risky pills and surgery. So how about a cuppa?
