HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE: STOCKING STUFFERS!

So, as a conclusion to my gift guides, I’ve come up with a list of little gifts that could find themselves in stocking or under the tree. They are generally unisex, but some are a little bias. Without further, let’s get into this!

  1. Socks: Everybody’s got feet, and everybody needs socks. I personally can never have enough funny socks.
  2. Sunglasses: Just because it’s getting dark earlier now doesn’t mean that we can’t think about the sun. Sunglasses are always fun to get.
  3. Key Chain: It could be a pom pom one for a girl or a unique leather one for guy, there are so many unique key chains out there.
  4. Phone Case: There are so many adorable cool phone cases out there and they make an awesome stocking stuff.
  5. Wallet: There are tons of wallets out there could be perfect for whoever you are shopping for.
  6. Chocolate/Candy: As always, you gotta have candy in your stocking. My favourites are Lindt and Skittles
  7. CD/DVD: I know in the age of Spotify and Netflix, who needs CDs and DVDs, but these are still cool to have.
  8. Makeup: Drug store makeup is nice to stick in stocking, especially a product or shade they’ve never used before.
  9. Face/Body Wash: A sweet smelling body wash or face wash is always a nice thought.
  10. Gift Cards: A few suggestions would be to get a facial, hair cut, Bath and Body Works, Starbucks, Urban Outfitters, and iTunes.
  11. Journal: I love to write in my journals and I have a huge collection of notebooks, so maybe I’m a little bias…
  12. Pencils:  They have some that are drumsticks that would be cool for a music lover or ones that say cute sayings on them would be cool for a lady boss.
  13. Hair Products: Both guys and girls use product on their hair, so why not grab an extra thing of gel for them this season?
  14. Flask: There are so many funny flasks out there that have funny sayings on them that would make hilarious stocking stuffers.
  15. Pocket Knife: Not for everyone, but still a pretty useful tool.
  16. Deodorant: Lame, I know, but no one wants to smell bad!
  17. Bracelet/Jewellery: Of course, this shouldn’t be diamond earrings, but a cute leather bracelet or a nice necklace is always a nice gift.
  18. Underpants: Basic, once again, but everybody needs ’em.
  19. Tea or Coffee or Hot Chocolate: Always nice to have a cup on Christmas morning.
  20.  Mini Hockey Sticks/Hockey Pucks: If they are a hockey lover, these are always nice to open. If they play volley ball, maybe new knee pads or socks.
  21. Music ‘Things’: If they are into music, guitar picks, strings, are super nice to get to get the music lover.
  22. Cosmetic Bag/Shower Bag: There are some super funny cosmetic bags out there that would fit super nicely.
  23. Ornament: This is sort of tradition my family does every year and we give each other an ornament that sort of sums up the year.
  24. Charging Cords: I always seem to lose or break my charging cords, so these are always nice to have extra ones.
  25. Travel Board Games: I know these are a little  silly, but they are super funny!

I’m hoping to make this a tradition every year, to do a gift guide for her, him and stocking stuffers! Would you guys like to see what I gave for Christmas or what I got for Christmas?

HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE: FOR HIM!!!

‘Tis the season! Last we talked, I was discussion what to get your friend, sister, girl friend, or mom for the holidays. Now, I’m going to share 25 things to get your friend, brother, boyfriend, dad or who ever for the holidays.

Again, like last time, these could be for girls or guys, but I’ve tried to come up with some stuff guys would like. I’ve asked my brothers, Brendan and my dad if they would like any of these gifts.

  1. A FitBit: I don’t really know why, but I feel like every guy just needs a FitBit. They look super good and are practical.
  2. Shaving Kit: Most guys have to shave, so a nice, luxurious shaving kit is always a good idea.
  3. A Robe: Most of the guys I know sleep in underwear or shirtless at least, so a robe is usually perfect for these winter months.
  4. Apple Music: I think this would be perfect, especially for a brother, because that’s all my brothers seem to do lately, so unlimited music seems like a win.
  5. Sweaters: Especially for boyfriends, a sweater is really a gift for him, but one you can steal later on…
  6. Cologne/Spray: Every guy needs their ‘signature smell’, so a spray or cologne is something most guys would be happy to get.
  7. Video Games: My brothers, boyfriend AND Dad all play video games pretty regularly (This year Titanfall and Battlefield are the top picks, according to Brendan)
  8. Sweatpants: Everyone needs a nice pair of pants for Sunday’s where you don’t want to do anything but watch cartoons and relax.
  9. Workout Bag: If your guy really likes sports, a cool idea would be to fill up a workout bag with a water bottle, maybe some shorts and a workout shirt.
  10. Sports Swag: What die hard fan doesn’t want gear that supports their team? None.
  11. Shoes: Nothing can make a guy look classy better than a pair of nice shoes. Make sure you know his size and style!
  12. Gift Box: You pick a theme, it could be an activity or something, and then you put together whatever they would need for this activity. This year, Brendan is giving my dad a gift box for hockey.
  13. Outdoor Supplies: A good backpack or a sleeping bag is a great addition to any adventure seeking guy.
  14. Personalised Book: This one more aimed at a long term boyfriend, but I still think it’s super cute. You can make one at Here at Lovebook. Super cute idea and super personal!
  15. Underpants: They need ’em and a luxurious pair of underpants are always nice to get.
  16. A Nerf Gun: This is something that my brother’s would get every year and I think this year we should revamp it for older guys.
  17. Mini Fridge: What guy doesn’t want a mini fridge? I know it’s a little big, but if you could get a deal it would be a unique gift.
  18. Laptop Bag & Stickers: If he’s a techie, a nice leather bag and some stickers to personalise their computer are nice gift.
  19. Shirt: Again, another gift for him that could be for you too, is a shirt that expressed his personality and quirks.
  20. French Press & Quirky Mug: Coffee is a lot of people’s lifeline, so a nice french press and a cute mug are always nice.
  21. Card Against Humanity: I love this game, and it’s a little raunchy but so much fun! I know my brothers have this on their list.
  22. Extra Charger: These can vary in price, but a nice little gift for a techie person. These come in variety of colours and fun shapes.
  23. Penny Board: A gift for a more coordinated guy that likes to skateboard. These are smaller boards that come in all sorts of different designs.
  24. Apple TV: Perfect for the techie of the family.
  25. Something Handmade: If all else fails, something you make, like cookies or pyjamas is always nice. They usually love whatever you make

These are just some ideas of what you could get the man in your life. If you think of any other great ideas you think they would like, comment! I tried to keep in mind the different types of guys there are out there. Happy Holidays!

PS: Stay tuned for my stocking stuffer ideas! Coming soon!

HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE: FOR HER!!!

As we get closer and closer to Christmas, I’m finding it harder and harder to think up gift ideas. So, I figured I would make up a gift guide for anyone out there like me who is having a hard time with ideas. I’m going to do three gift guide: for her, one for him and stocking stuffer ideas.

A gift guide for her is really any girl in your life: sister, best friend, mom, girlfriend, grandmas, and aunt, whatever. I created this list with girls in min, but they could be for anyone you can think of.

  1. Cute Christmas PJS: You can never have enough PJs and Christmas time is just fantastic, so why not have a cute pair of PJs that you can lounge around in after unwrapping gifts?
  2. Bath Stuff: I only recently really got into bath bombs and bubble baths, but I love them. Lush is great for this ones, especially Lush and Bath and Body works.
  3. Candles: What makes a house cozier than candles?
  4. Makeup Brushes: I really need a new set of brushes and a feel like a girl can never have too many makeup brushes.
  5. Lipstick Kits: If the person you’re shopping for loves a good lipstick, you can never go wrong with a new lippie. It could even become their new favourite.
  6. A Subscription: Subscriptions have become a new trend and I see one almost every day that I want to sign up for.
  7. Cardigans/Sweaters: Where I live, it’s freezing almost all the time in the winter, so I can’t seem to get enough sweaters and cardigans. Old Navy is my number one spot for sweaters and I’ve really like Ricki’s/Bootleger for cardigans.
  8. Gloves and a Beanie: I got this last year for Christmas from Brendan’s mom and it was awesome. My dog actually decided to adopt my gloves as a chew toy, but I really liked them while they lasted.
  9. A Style Book: If the someone who is really into fashion, a style book is always a good idea (I really like Lauren Conrad’s Style) but really any book is a good idea.
  10. Slippers: Slippers are necessary for me year round, but even more so for winter time (I have two pairs!)
  11. Onesie: I have wanted a huge oversized onesie for ever! I want one that’s either Christmas themed or one with a reindeer on it.
  12. New Underwear: I have so many pairs of underwear and I still want more, so if you aren’t weirded out by it, underwear is a safe bet.
  13. New Cup/To Go Mug: Starbucks has some of the cutest to go mugs every year and every year, my friends and I oogle over them. David’s tea has some super cute ones as well.
  14. A Planner: I’m a huge planner girl. I decorate mine, write everything down it and use it like my Bible. Best. Thing. Ever. Band.o always has really cute ones, as well as Kate Spade.
  15. A Tray: I know that’s super vague, but I have one of those trays that can sit on your bed or coffee table last year for Christmas from Mr. B. In mine, Brendan added pictures of us in it, which is a cute touch, and I love it to death. I can put my essentials in it and anything else that I want. Super great idea that you can personalise as well.
  16. New Tote/Purse: These things come in handy all the time. I’ve been really liking the new leather totes in colours such as black, grey, and blush pink.
  17. Hunter Boots: I really want Hunter boots because they are so cute! They are also really practical for winter because of snow-slush situations.
  18. Pillows: Cozy pillows make rooms so much cuter for winter time!
  19. Cute Decor: A few years ago, I got some decor items for Christmas and it was awesome! It opened up my thoughts about what to decorate my room.
  20. Wireless Speakers or Headphone: These are actually on my on my list this year because I listen to music everyday, so they might as well be cute ones.
  21. A Fake Fur Rug/Blanket: These are super trendy right now and for goo reason! They are super cute and cozy for winter and all the time.
  22. A Polaroid Camera: These are super cool! You can snap a picture of Christmas morning it’s instantly there. Be sure to involve extra film.
  23. A Teapot: I drink about 400 cups of tea a day and I recently bought a tea pot and it’s made my life 10 times easier. A super cute one in her favourite colour is a great idea!
  24. Makeup Gift Set: Companies are the best this time of year for making huge gift sets for the makeup lovers of the world. This year, I’ve been eyeing up the Marc Jacobs gift sets, as well Sephora.
  25. Jewellery Box: I got one of these lasts year and they are super great for storage and not to mention they look super cute.

Well there we go! A quick 25 gift ideas that your friend, sister, mom, girlfriend, grandma, coworker, whoever would love to unwrap this holiday season! Coming soon is the gift guide for him and the stocking stuffer ideas!

I hope you all have a wonderful day/night/afternoon/morning and remember that you are capable of great things! A happy holidays from mine to yours!
