These are a few of my favourite things…
Christmas is rapidly approaching and if you’re like me and leave everything to the last minute, you might be strapped for ideas. From great hostess gifts, treats for your best gal pals and some luxury goodies for yourself (the best kind of present) here are some of my top picks for the holiday season.

1. Sugarfina Gift Set
Sugarfina does candy right. Divinely delicious and stylish to boot! This shimmering Candy Bento Box is filled with three of my favourite Sugarfina candies; Champagne Bears, Sparkle Pops and Bubbly Bears….. Calories don’t count during the holidays anyways right?
2. Ruffino Prosecco
Who doesn’t love Prosecco?! It’s refreshing, fruity and ideal for pairing with all types of holiday treats. The Ruffino Prosecco is my absolute favourite with aromas of ripe fruit, a hint of almond and a crisp citrus finish. A great hostess gift with an even better price tag!
3. Microsoft Surface Pro
The Surface Pro is so incredibly light I can create, study, work, and play virtually anywhere. It’s a tablet, a laptop and a drawing pad all in one, with all day battery life. My favourite part? Bringing my ideas to life on the high-resolution PixelSense Display screen that responds to my touch. So flipping cool!
4. Radford x Janette Ewen Lip Gloss
I am obsessed with this lip gloss! Okay I know I helped create the colour but it is seriously beautiful on every skin tone. The perfect pink with just the right amount of plump! What’s not to love?!
5. Gucci Backpack
You work hard. Why not treat yourself?? At least that’s my motto. This is definitely a SPLURGE but if you are an avid traveler like myself, nothing compares to the handsfree bliss of using a backpack. I searched high and low for over a year to find the perfect one. Not too big, not too small and of course, stylish. So glad I found this Gucci one.
6. Pandora Timeless Elegance Earrings in 14K Gold
If you haven’t noticed, I LIVE in these earrings. They are the perfect accessory to any outfit: simple, classic and chic. Pandora makes beautiful handmade gold jewelry at a great price point. These earrings are the perfect investment and will never go out of style.
7. Pet Smart’s Stanley
Stanley would make an adorable addition to any home. He’s only 8.99 and best of all, when you purchase Stanley you help support PetSmart Charities' mission of finding lifelong, loving homes for all pets. Feel good gifts are just the best :)
8. Mobilia x Janette Ewen - Ewen Deco Pendant Lamp
One of my favourite new pieces from my collection. This audacious, gold-accented light source will make a grandiose addition to any décor.
9. Ici Paris Gift Certificate
From micro-needling to laser hair removal and more, Ici Paris does it all. The staff at Ici are welcoming, unpretentious and most importantly, good at there job. It’s no wonder they’ve won “Best Spa in Toronto” so many times.
10. Jonathan Adler Acrylic Pills
I’m dying over these acrylic pills! Jonathan Adler can do no wrong.
11. TomTom Spark 3
This past year I’ve been on a fitness journey and the TomTom Spark 3 was a huge help when it came to achieving my goals. It counts my steps, holds my music, tracks my heart rate and so much more! Best workout buddy ever.
12. Hermes Collier de Chien Bracelet
These bracelets are spendy for sure but hey, you deserve it! I have one in tan and one in black and wear them almost daily. Don’t be afraid to bang them up, I find they get better with age.
13. Soap and Glory Sugar Crush Body Butter Cream
Airplanes not only suck the life out of me but also the moisture so thank god for Soap and Glory! All of their products smell divine. Lately I’ve been loving the Sugar Crush Body Butter Cream. The fruity scent makes me feel like I’m on a tropical vacation. A welcome escape from the awful winter weather we’re having lately (hello -22!)
14. PayPal Gift Card (Designed by yours truly)
This year PayPal asked me to design their holiday gift cards and I was beyond excited! As an avid online shopper, I adore PayPal. It’s secure (phew!) and you don’t have to constantly enter your shipping or billing info. Skip the mall madness and shop online with PayPal this year. Thank me later.
15. Driftwood Décor Candles
Lora’s candles are my absolute fave. They smell amazing and last longer than any candle I’ve ever tried (over 50 hours!). They’re all natural; non-GMO organic soy wax, non-toxic and vegan friendly.
16. Miranda Kerr x Royal Albert Collection
Quite possibly the most beautiful plates I’ve ever seen. So girly and fun!
17. Smash and Tess Sunday Romper
If I’m not in full TV glam or in my work out gear, I’m most likely wearing this. To say it’s comfortable would be the understatement of the year. You need one. Everyone needs one.
