Sleigh Belles Ring


Oh man, eventually I really have to come up with another moniker for my gift guides for your girlfriends…if you look back I’ve been use the ‘bells / belles’ thing for a few years. But regardless, today’s gift guide is once again jam packed with the best gift ideas for your gal pals this 2015 holiday season. And without further ado…

Canadian Living Ultimate Cookbook

Canadian Living: The Ultimate Cookbook – $44.95
Awhile back, one of my closest friends introduced me to the joys of Canadian Living, which isn’t always associated with gift ideas for girls in their early 20s (as I was at the time). But really, what’s not to love? The recipes are rigorously perfected by the Canadian Living test kitchen team, they often feature very simple and easy-to-acquire ingredients, they’re budget and time-conscious, and they’re written for a Canadian audience. After 40 years of delivering the best, kitchen-approved recipes, they’ve brought together 450 of their most beloved must-have recipes into one glossy book. Covering all of the essentials (every type of meat gets its own entree section, for example) and all the fixins’ you need to make an expert meal (like quick breads, sauces, and of course, dessert), this is a must-have cookbook for Canadian Living fans, hapless cooks, or those just looking to shake things up in the kitchen with easy, affordable, yet totally scrumptious and healthy dishes.

Citrus Zinger

Citrus Zinger Original – $15.99 @ Zing Anything
I’ve written a few times about Zing Anything this holiday season, but they have so many ideas I simply haven’t been able to stop highlighting them! This awesome BPA-free water bottle is specifically designed to squeeze the juice from the lemon, as it were. Or really, from any citrus fruit you can imagine – limes, clementines, and other juicy fruits are all fair game! Simply insert half of a citrus fruit of your choice into the base reamer, reattach it, shake up your bottle, and you’ve got refreshing and detoxifying citrus-infused water at your fingertips. It’s an excellent pick for the fitness fanatic on your list that’s looking to freshen up her water-drinking habits, or for a friend you’re challenging to up her water game in the new year. Be sure to nab one for yourself so you can both guzzle back more healthy, zingy water than ever!

BuddhiBox

BuddhiBox – $32.95 / month-to-month or $27.95 / month for a 12-month subscription
I encounter a lot of subscription boxes in my gift guide searches but this one struck me as a totally unique concept. The boxes are geared for people who practice yoga and generally live a healthy, nurturing, mindful lifestyle. Each month you receive 4-6 full-sized products from brands that align with a yogi’s commitment to mindfulness and kindness to the earth and its people. While some of the products may be directly related to yoga, many of them are simply great introductions to brands that have sustainable, ethical business mandates (Top 10 Gifts Under $10 idea PeopleTowels has been included in a past box). From treats to cosmetics to mat wipes to aromatherapy, the BuddiBox is a zenful choice for that soul sister in your circle. They also offer a jewelry version of the box, which comes out quarterly and features stylish pieces designed to inspire balance and harmony.
BONUS OFFER: Enter the code CAGIFT at checkout when purchasing a gift subscription and receive 10% off your order.

Apoterra Skincare

Hibiscus Exfoliating Mud with Rosehip + Açaí – $24 + Herbal Detoxifying Steam with Flowers + Cleansing Herbs – $22 @ Apoterra Skincare
Have a friend that simply needs to chill out? Then this one-two punch of products from natural beauty brand Apoterra Skincare ought to be on your list. The aforementioned ‘mud’ is one of of three scrubs / masks the brand offers, each with its own benefits. This particular one is what I chose to feature for the holiday season as it helps exfoliate dry skin patches that can appear with cold winter weather and winds, but the other two are equally great for brightening and purifying the skin. What’s great is the Hibiscus Exfoliating Mud can be applied on the fly to scrub off dead skin cells, or keep it on for awhile to nurture the skin with a soothing mask. In fact, it’s actually great when applied after using the brand’s herbal steam – simply sprinkle some of the natural herbs with steaming water, then lower your face over it with a towel over your head for a detoxifying, pore-opening experience. The water can then be added to your bath for a relaxing soak (at which point it’s a great time to lather on that exfoliating mud).

Stila Liquid Lipstick Set

Stila Liquid Lipstick Set in Eternal Flame – $26 @ Murale, Shoppers Drug Mart, Murale.ca and BeautyBoutique.ca
This season, Stila is all about making that pout mistletoe-worthy, with a trio of romantic hues of their best-selling Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick. If you’re unfamiliar with the product, it’s a must-have for the holiday season as the liquid lipsticks are designed to stay on for up to 6 hours while delivering moisture and richly pigmented colour throughout your entire holiday event. Pint-sized and ready to toss into your purse, this cute gift set comes in a gift-ready gold box that makes for a perfect treat for your fave beauty maven or for that single gal that’s looking to attract some extra lip service.

Clair de Lune Birch Tealight Trio

Birch Tealight Candle Holder Trio – $34.99 @ Clair de Lune
If your friend is a decorating maven then she’ll surely flip for this amazingly priced trio of rustic candle holders. Designed to look like rough birch wood trunks, these stylish candle holders are actually made from durable resin (meaning they’re even suitable for your mom friends with wild little ones running about). They hold tea lights, votives and even flameless LED lights, for total versatility. They look spectacular as a trio but also can be broken up and displayed in different parts of the home, casting a subtle festive glow over anyone’s home. Be sure to snap up some of Clair de Lune’s tealights while you’re shopping, in festive holiday scents like Mandarin Cranberry.

Demeter Fragrance Library Foolproof Blending Kits

Foolproof Blending Kits – $35 – $45 USD @ Demeter Fragrance Library
Does your friend fancy themselves a bit of a beauty brainiac? The wizards at Demeter Fragrance Library – the fragrance brand behind real-life scents and pick-me-up sprays – have recently launched blending kits that feature scents that can be seamlessly blended together in any quantity for your ideal custom perfume. Each kit contains two or three different fragrances, a funnel, droppers, an empty bottle and a blank label. Mix and match the scents to create your ideal final blend – for example, if you love the brand’s earthy Grass and Dirt fragrances and wish you could wrap yourself in both each and every day, that’s actually one of the Foolproof Blending Kit combinations available – but if you want to be more grass than dirt, it’s easy to balance the two till you come up with your perfect perfume. There are already several permanent collection kits available in both duos and trios, with special limited edition festive combinations en route (like Pumpkin Pie & Sandalwood). The trios offer even more mix & match possibilities with general themes like Water (Rain, Salt Air and Great Barrier Reef) or Chocolate (Chocolate Mint, Moon Bean, Special Dark). The trick is to find the one she’ll love the best and let her go wild with experimenting! The scents, for the record, can be worn on their own, and they’re actually releasing new duos + trios every month! Keep an eye out 🙂

Zinnia West Jewelry

Zinnia West Jewelry – From $25
I was delighted to recently be introduced to Lindsay, the owner of Vancouver-based Zinnia West. As a fellow boutique owner, I was super psyched to see another Canadian online retailer pop up that is committed to selling fabulous yet affordable pieces for every girl to covet. In this case, Zinnia West curates an incredible collection of statement jewelry – some more subtle than others – with most pieces clocking in at the $50 or less mark. From bedazzled necklaces to sculptured bracelets to dainty earrings, this sparkling shop is a must-have if you’re looking for a special piece for each of your gal pals but don’t want to break the bank. With new arrivals popping up on the regular, I *strongly* recommend following them on Instagram so you stay in the loop with their latest releases (and you’ll earn a bonus entry into this draw to boot!)

YOGANET

Bohemia Skincare YOGANET Mat Cleaner – From $14
The friends that savasana together stay together, am I right? Only…when is the last time you thought about how clean your yoga mat is? After all, you’re typically practicing in bare feet and with your grimy hands, you may be sweating, and then you’re potentially touching tons of other parts of your body to the mat too. Enter Bohemia Skincare’s life-saving YOGANET mat cleaner, which uses all-natural disinfectants and cleaning agents to eliminate funky smells, rid your mat of built-up bacteria, and ensure every practice is as peaceful as possible as you pretzel your way into yet another impossible pose. Simply spritz it on and wipe away the grime! It’s available in two sizes and comes in a durable aluminum bottle which can actually be refilled for an economical price instead of constantly having to buy a whole new bottle. This must-have item not only rocks as a gift for your fellow yogi babes, it’s also a fabulous stocking stuffer for any practicing yogi that hasn’t yet experience this amazing brand!

Raincoast Coloring Books for Adults

Fantastic Cities by Steve McDonald – $19.95
3D Coloring Flowers by Hannah Davies – $19.95
Tattoo Coloring Book by Oliver Munden & Jo Waterhouse – $19.95
I noticed the other week that a lot of you responded to my inclusion of an adult colouring book – so I’m keeping that train rolling by suggesting three more that would make amazing gifts for your favourite girlfriends for different reasons. First, Fantastic Cities, which borrows from real architecture alongside imagined places to create extremely detailed landscapes any travel bug-bitten gal will love to wile away the hours with while on a plane. Next, 3D Flowers is part of a unique series of colouring books that include a pair of retro 3D glasses. When you colour your pictures, the glasses will actually make the dark and light parts take on a slightly 3D appearance so you can enjoy your images in more ways than one. Finally, the Tattoo Coloring Book is great for any friend that loves her body art – it’s also a good introduction to adult colouring books because the images tend to be a little simpler and less ornate, so they won’t have to worry too much about getting a hand cramp (but they’ll still have plenty of creative fun!)
