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 braclet

Yes, please!

Gold is hot right now. Sparkle Rondell Bangle ($50) from Banana Republic.

gratitude kit

A little gratitude never hurt anyone…

A Year of Gratitude ($39.95), a kit to inspire 52 weeks of giving thanks from Twisted Goods.

wooden Signs

For the basement, perhaps?

Love the local angle on these wooden signs (from $20) at Brandy Melville.

Surf spray

I use this every summer for beachy waves.

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.


There are knock-offs, but this one is tops.

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. 

Rice Water Bright

K-beauty is so hot right now!

Asian women know Rice Bran is a natural brightener. Thrilled to find Rice Water Bright (from $9) at The Face Shop.

wine glass for women

Yaaas, queen!

A wine glass that holds an entire bottle of wine ($25)? Giddy up! Available at Paper Root Studios.

Sorel slim shortie

Just like Jody has!

These Sorel Slim Shorties ($135.99) might just be the best winter boot out there. Spotted at SoftMoc.

colourful hat and mitts

Colour blocking!

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 Bracelet

It’s a momento thing.

Thomas Sabo Karma Beads Bracelet ($78). We gals love anything we can customize and make personal, right?

Stocking Stuffers

humorous wet wipes

A gal can never have enough wipes on hand.

Crazy, Beautiful Wet Wipes ($4.95) are both funny and practical. Found at Twisted Goods.

colorful bath bomb

I stock up on these every winter.

Throw this Luxury Lush Pud ($6.95) in your bath and watch it fizzle into a kaleidoscope of colour. Available at Lush.

crystal hair pins

How retro! And glam!

These hair pins ($2/each) from JoyDrop add a glamorous touch to any winter outfit.


There’s that K-beauty again!

So many mask sheets ($2) to choose from at The Face Shop!

Kussi tongs

We have three sets!

I own four of these mini Kussi tongs ($4) from House of Knives. Kids love using them!
