Can you believe it's already the middle of November? You know what that means, Winter Is Coming. That's inevitable, but it's Christmas that is going to sneak up on us way quicker than any of us thought. So I decided to make everyone's lives a little bit easier by putting together a little gift guide for the women in your life. Whether it's your mum, sister, best friend, girlfriend or wife you're shopping for. Make it easier on yourself by checking out this unique list of items and hopefully there will be something to inspire you! Check back next week for a series about my favourite places to shop on the West Coast, in Ucluelet, Tofino and my old home Victoria.
These booties are perfect for that fashionista in your life. Booties are everywhere this season and can be worn with everything. These block heel version from Zara are fun with their jacquard pattern and on trend, great for that stylish person in your life. Check out their website for more great winter picks, I have always loved Zara but I think they have really nailed it this season.
This piece is great for that special lady in your life. Yes it is even on my own personal wishlist. I have been a fan of Wolf Circus for some time now, almost always ordering something from their line for someone's Christmas present. Their pieces are such high quality at a great price point. Simple pendants are definitely on trend in the jewelry world at the moment and this one is both simple yet unique with the artistic touch of the female body in the pendant.
Tanya Burr is one of my favourite bloggers right now. I absolutely love her style and her makeup is amazing. I am not much of a makeup person but she is definitely an inspiration for whenever I am going out and want my look to really make a statement. Her book about all things Christmas recently came out and is the perfect present for any woman in your life. With baking and DIY ideas, there is something for everyone in it.
Backpacks are everywhere at the moment and such an easy way to carry all your needs instead of lugging around a large purse. When my cousin came over to my parents place in Victoria the other week she was sporting one and loved it, especially for cycling to work. I had a Lonchamp bag for years and loved it, it held everything. This is a great gift for that woman in your life who is always on the go but still wants to look fashionable!
A scarf is a great gift to give anyone, from your mum to your best friend, everyone appreciates a beautiful scarf. Aritizia carries some of the best scarves around, from blanket scarves to beautiful yet functional scarves like the one above. I love the metallic hearts that cover this one and the blush colour. It would be perfect to keep you both warm but always looking stylish.
What woman doesn't love a good throw pillow? If you have someone in your life that is difficult to buy for, especially when it comes to clothes, why not pick her up one of these fun pillows. Perfect to decorate both your couch or bed, or even to use as a cushion to sit on the floor. They come in so many fun coloured velvet, the fabric of the season!
I have to admit that my workout clothes are all Lululemon and I am always wanting more! If you have a lady in your life who is active these long sleeve tops are perfect for this time of year. The ombre effect is both stylish and flattering, or if you prefer a plain colour, it comes in numerous different shades to choose from.
Shopping local is so important and when you live in a small community like I do, it is so nice to support the local shops. Tofino Soap Co. has such a wonderful range of soaps and candles that it would be hard not to find something for someone on your Christmas list. Or just pick it up for yourself as a treat. I know I will be purchasing some of their gorgeous soaps for both the women and men in my life.
This time of year means cuddling up and getting cozy. This throw blanket from Anthropologie would be a great gift for someone living in a colder climate. It would be perfect for the back of a couch or on top of a bed, easy to reach for those cold evenings curled up in front of the fire.
I have to admit I ordered this Balm Dotcom Trio and I can't wait to try it. I promised myself I would only keep one and give the other two as gifts. Lip gloss is an easy present to give any of your girlfriends because who doesn't love a good lip colour? Glossier has boomed in popularity since they started their company. However, their line is minimalist which is great when it comes to makeup, because sometimes simple is more.
I hope this top 10 gift guide gave you some inspiration for both your own personal Christmas list as well as who you have left to buy for. I'm not going to remind you how many days until Christmas, because we all know it will be here way too quickly! Happy shopping!
