As much as I like to think we’re pretty easy to buy for, we ladies are pretty specific when it comes to what we want. I pity the poor partner who believes his love when she says, “don’t buy me anything.” Sucker. I tore through CF Market Mall a few weeks ago and have come up with some perfect presents for the gals you’re gifting. But don’t be a fool, always ask for a gift receipt. And be sure to comment below with some of your suggestions before Wednesday midnight and you could win a $50 gift card to shop Market Mall.
Gold is hot right now. Sparkle Rondell Bangle ($50) from Banana Republic.
A Year of Gratitude ($39.95), a kit to inspire 52 weeks of giving thanks from Twisted Goods.
Love the local angle on these wooden signs (from $20) at Brandy Melville.
I bought this Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray ($29) in summer and for once loved my curly hair. Score some at Dolce Salon for sexy, beachy waves – no frizz.
Beauty editors swear by this Clarisonic Skin Cleansing System ($139) from Sephora and so do I. Think about how clean your teeth get after using an electric toothbrush. Same thing.
Asian women know Rice Bran is a natural brightener. Thrilled to find Rice Water Bright (from $9) at The Face Shop.
A wine glass that holds an entire bottle of wine ($25)? Giddy up! Available at Paper Root Studios.
These Sorel Slim Shorties ($135.99) might just be the best winter boot out there. Spotted at SoftMoc.
You can never have enough cute hat and mitt sets ($21.95) in my books. Bonus: the mitts fold back to fingerless gloves. Found at Carlton Cards.
Thomas Sabo Karma Beads Bracelet ($78). We gals love anything we can customize and make personal, right?
Crazy, Beautiful Wet Wipes ($4.95) are both funny and practical. Found at Twisted Goods.
Throw this Luxury Lush Pud ($6.95) in your bath and watch it fizzle into a kaleidoscope of colour. Available at Lush.
These hair pins ($2/each) from JoyDrop add a glamorous touch to any winter outfit.
So many mask sheets ($2) to choose from at The Face Shop!
I own four of these mini Kussi tongs ($4) from House of Knives. Kids love using them!

Thank you Market Mall for making my 2014 gift guide possible! As always, these awesome selections are my own.
For those interested in makeup, Urban Decay has released a “Naked On The Run” palette. The colours are amazing and for $64 its a steal! If I win the $50 to market mall, this is definitely what I’ll be picking up 🙂
Available at Sephora – Link: http://www.sephora.com/naked-on-the-run-P390960?om_mmc=oth-fb-20141130-NOTRonline
Now I’m keen to pick that up! I just bought an Urban Decay lip liner over the weekend and love it. Thanks so much for the tip!
I absolutely love their eyeshadow palettes! The color payoff is awesome and without a primer, it’ll last me 10-12 hours without creasing! Let me know how you like this one, I’m debating whether or not to purchase since I have all the previous ones :$
David’s Tea has a lovely winter collection of teapots, teas, & all sorts of really pretty mugs / travel mugs / teacups which can all together make a pretty awesome gift basket. I like giving “calming” gifts to my fellow stressed out moms who need some quiet tea-time!
Congratulations, Krista! You’ve just won a $50 gift card to shop Market Mall. I’ll send the details to the email you provided. Hope to see you back at Travels with Baggage again soon. Really appreciate your support.
Thank you so much, Jody! That is fantastic!!! And Market Mall…. watch out, here I come! 🙂
I like to get holiday themed serving dishes or glasses etc from Stokes for my girls. We all tend to host and they come in handy. I also throw in something yummy smelling from Bath and Body Works. Can’t go wrong with that.
I am getting my mom some lotions and candles at Bath & Body Works. Love that store!
I’ve been looking at Aldo and spring and Browns to find heels for my sister! She’s the maid of honor for her best friend and is travelling to Australia right after Christmas to attend it! And I’d love to use the $50 gift card to find her white heels for the wedding!! Since we both have trouble finding heels that fit properly
I’d LOVE to get the ladies in my life some Body Shop or Bath and Body works items to make them look and smell as lovely as they are!!
@RebTheCatSitter on Twitter 🙂
I am getting my mom some new mittens from The Bay to go along with her gift! Love all the knitted mittens!!!
I’m loving the jewellery at Joy Drop! Beautiful and affordable. I definitely plan to pick up some things from here for my mom and sis. And I also like Twisted Goods for unique stocking stuffers for my girlfriends.
Have you ever tried prtty peaushun at JoyDrop? I also wrote about it on this blog. It’s so amazing!
Sorels please 🙂
I’ve started my Christmas shopping but still have a few hard to buy for people. Love the look of the Sorrel boots and the Clarisonic Cleansing system looks pretty darned cool. Looks like you had fun doing this Jody.
My girlfriend loves anything warm and cozy, especially in the winter! Her favourite thing that I’ve ever gotten her has been an electric heated blanket, haha! If I won an awesome gift card to Market Mall, I would probably get her some nice new gloves and some fur-lined slippers to wear around the house. 😉
Great tip with the heating blanket, Michael!
Awesome list! The bangle from Banana Republic is absolutely gorgeous. I have good luck getting the ladies in my life pretty cookware and dishware, since we all love food. 🙂
You know, I found some amazing sales with Le Creuset on Black Friday. $12.50 for casserole dishes – the small size, but still….
A friend is struggling this Christmas and I know she loves the Lush Bath bombs, so they’re on my list!
Glad you found some useful recs.
