Tis the time of year to start thinking about what to get everyone. There are a lot of gift guides coming out at this time of year and they often split out the gifts by person (mum, dad, kids, significant other, grandparents, school teacher, dog, neighbour and on and on). I’m going to keep it simple and in three easy categories; under $20, $20-$50 and $50+.
So without further delay, here are some gift ideas for under $20. These are perfect for stocking stuffers, a secret santa exchange or a host gift. You don’t have to spend a lot to get something nice!
Joe Fresh Cable Knit Winter Hat $12
Perhaps one of the best $12 ever spent, the quality of this hat is really nice! Super soft and very warm, perfect for Canadian winters. It also comes in black, navy or white and there are matching mittens available. You can find them at Joe Fresh, some Loblaws and Shoppers Drug Marts or here online:
Sephora Collection Sparkle & Shine Compact Mirror $15
A festive and fun compact that adds a little sparkle to your purse. Great for touch ups on the go. You can find this here:
Voluspa Jar candle $14
A great host gift – Voluspa candles are coconut wax based and clean burning. The scents last longer and they don’t burn toxins that are harmful to breathe in. There is a large selection of delicious scents! You can find them at Indigo bookstores or online here:
H&M Knitted Scarf $17.99
Another cozy and warm gift, this knitted scarf from H&M is so soft. It also comes in a light grey, you can find it here:
Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter Duo $19
Made with whipped argan oil, these are super hydrating and will keep your skin moisturized all winter. Available at Sephora stores and online here:
Herbivore Soap $14
These natural soaps from Herbivore are another great stocking stuffer. Both are clarifying/detoxifying, the Pink Clay also has a nice scent to it. Available at Urban Outfitters stores and online here:
Pretty Cosmetics Soap $9
Or if you are looking for something all natural in many delicious scents, check out these all natural soap bars from Pretty Cosmetics. Available online here:
Kitten and the Bear Jam & Honey $10-$12
A perfect gift for foodies or something nice to take the host at a holiday party. The jam flavours are very unique and all amazingly delicious, it’s hard to pick one but if I had to it would be the Banana, Bourbon & Vanilla Bean. KATB make the most beautiful gift set boxes at any price range, you can get a duo made up into this beautifully wrapped box below.
Although there is only one physical location in Toronto, you can order online and they seem to ship pretty much anywhere. Available online here:
Next post will be the $20-$50 budget range and there are lots of great gifts, it was hard to narrow them down. Stay tuned for Wednesday’s gift guide!
