Holiday Gift Ideas

I cannot believe that it's already December. Though the frosty weather is a daily reminder, I'm surprised that 2014 is nearly behind us. But with Christmas only a few weeks away, I decided to compile a short list of my favourite gift ideas for friends and family this holiday season.

Sephora Gift Sets 

I recently ordered the Skin Wonderland set (blog post here) and I have to admit that Sephora's gift ideas are very worthwhile. I mention their Face & Eye Travel Tool Kit in this video, which I believe is sadly sold out. Many comparable brush sets are still available on the site and their top-selling gifts are in stock for the current Beauty Insider discount ($15-$25 off).

L'Occitane Gift Sets

For any skincare lover, L'Occitane is the place to be around the holidays. I love shopping around their boutiques since their signature sets are always such a great value. The gift with purchase promotions, and pretty packaging make their exquisite French body products ideal gifts for anyone.

Joe Fresh Statement Necklace 

Yes, I buy necklaces at my grocery store. I couldn't say no when I saw the sparkly crystals on this pretty statement necklace when perusing the Joe Fresh aisle at my local Loblaws. For under $20, their jewellery pieces are a perfect last-minute addition to any pretty present.

Body Fantasies Body Spray Set 

Instead of buying pre-packaged presents, it's always nice to create something more personal. For only a few dollars at Wal-Mart, these fragrances by Body Fantasies smell amazing. They would be perfect as stocking stuffers or thrown in with some other beauty products. This set includes sweet pea, fresh musk and a deeper floral fragrance.

Shick Hydro Shaving Set 

Most drugstores have special promotions around the holidays, and I recently spotted these awesome gift sets at Shoppers Drug Mart. The purple-themed set for women was super cute, and actually came with a small travel hair straightener. I ended up choosing the mens version, since I prefer the Hydro 5 razor. Best part? A bonus set of pocket pliers. See the video below for more details.

The Body Shop is also having a buy 2 get 2 free, or buy 3 get 3 free deal until Dec. 8 so you can browse around here if you're a fan of their products.

Happy shopping!
