Valentine’s Day Gifts for HER

Just for Fun, Products and Brands, Toronto Adventures

It’s almost Valentine’s Day and what could be lovelier than surprising your mother/sister/best friend/aunt/grandmother/cousin with a thoughtful gift? NOTHING. I know that Valentine’s Day is a couples holiday but why not change the rules this year? Why not give a little something to someone you may have forgotten to show them how much you care about them?

Christmas is coming….

Family Time, Fashion & Beauty, Just for Fun, Products and Brands

I know that it’s only November but it’s never too early to think about your Christmas shopping list! I’m pretty lucky in the sense that I do Kris Kringle with my family and with my boyfriend’s family. This not only limits the amount spent per person but it limits the number of people I have to buy for. Not that I don’t want to buy gifts for everyone, it just gets extremely expensive and stressful! Since we’re going to be picking names for Kris Kringle soon, I thought I would put together a little Holiday Gift Guide for Her (and under $100).

Good Morning Beautiful Mug $10

Rouge Peony iPhone 5 Case $17.95

Pure Heroine CD $18.28

Well-Read Women: Portraits of Fiction’s Most Beloved Heroines $23.95

Bare Love Beauty Full Collection $28 – $58

GUESS Cross Studded Foil Tee $49

Michael Kors SEXY AMBER Perfume 50mL $75

Hillberg & Berk Aurora Lux Ring $95

So what if this list doubles as my personal Christmas wish list 😉 ? So what if all of the products are from my favourite brands and stores (Chapters, Michael Kors, The Red Bow Shoppe)? I’m sure a few of these products will be loved by someone on your “TO BUY FOR” list! The best part about this list is that no matter your budget, there’s something here for that special friend/girlfriend/bestie/sister/mom/random.

largeHappy shopping and don’t forget to add a personal hand-written note with every gift you give. It’ll make your special someone feel that much more special. It’ll show them that you’re buying them something because they MEAN something to you, not just because it’s Christmas!

Christmas Gift-Guide

Just for Fun, Products and Brands

I’ve seen a lot gift-giving blog pots recently but none for people like myself. So here is my first ever gift-giving guide/suggestions for the BOOK NERD BLOGGERS in your life <;3

Untitled

1. The best books I read in 2012:

2. Volant Large Ruled Notebook by Moleskin from Papyrus (my favourite notebooks to date – seriously I spend a lot of time with them) $12.95

3. Writers are made of 10% water and 90% coffee, so a witty coffee mug will delight them. This “Always Blog on A Full Tank” mug can be found here $10.00

4. Bookish shirts are amazingly awesome. The “GO TO HELL I’M READING” shirt can be found here $28.99

5. Every writer wants a typewriter to display nicely in their lavish office or Beauty and the Beast library. I’m swooning over this vintage typewriter, found it on Etsy $303.39

What are you buying for the book-loving, coffee-drinking, blogging, old-fashion-pen-and-paper-Writer-friends in your life?

Love Always
