Can you believe that Christmas is almost here? Think about it… In just a little over a month we’ll be welcoming Santa into our homes to fill our trees with presents. I honestly cannot wait. We’re in the process of de-cluttering our tiny apartment just so I can get in the spirit of decorating! In the mean time, I wanted to share some gift guides this week that I know will be perfect for anyone you’re shopping for. From stocking stuffers to high ticket items, I’ll let you in on some must-buy items this holiday season. Today, I’ll start with my favourite category – Fashion & Beauty!


When I buy any beauty products as gifts, I like to think ‘what will they use’ or ‘what do they need’ … for men, I stick to skincare and shaving kits. Most guys are clueless when it comes to skincare and it’s nice to gift a set that does all the thinking for them. For women, I go for products that add a finishing touch such as nails, skin and makeup… and when in doubt, get a cool gadget that helps with anti-aging.

Fashion can be a little tricky because everyone’s style is so different and unique. So I tend to stick to basics like accessories. Whether it’s a beautiful watch, purse, pair of gloves or scarf — think about how they can can incorporate this into their everyday attire. For men, it’s quite simple… always buy a few briefs or boxers (you can never go wrong) and I love to gift a nice wallet, watch or winter accessories.
