Holiday Gift Guide for Her
1. Brok Boys Slim Bamboo Joggers
Tell me I’m not the only one on a mission to fill my wardrobe with clothing that feels like pajamas but is acceptable to wear out of the house?
These Slim Bamboo Joggers from Brok Boys are the real deal. Unbelievably soft, perfectly stretchy without being slouchy, and made in Canada.
Looking for high quality clothing for the whole family? Brok Boys has you covered!
2. Femme Faire Fringe Bag
I can’t get enough of this Fringe Bag from Femme Faire. It is made of 100% wool, genuine leather, hand dyed, and handwoven by a skilled artisan.
Pieces like this from Femme Faire support the slow fashion movement and conscious consumerism, something that I believe wholeheartedly in.
This bag may or may not be on my own person list – wink, wink.
3. Living Apothecary Loose Leaf Tea
This loose leaf tea from Living Apothecary is a staple in my pantry and one of my favourite gifts to share.
Not only does Living Apothecary create beautiful blends of therapeutic ingredients to support women’s wellness but also uses glass amber jars to reduce reordering and their carbon footprint when it comes to shipping.
For the holidays, Living Apothecary has partnered with a number of other local business to bring you a Holiday Gift Guide.
4. Province Apothecary Dual-Action Jade Facial Roller
If you’re buying for a skincare junkie like me, the Dual-Action Jade Facial Roller from Province Apothecary is a winner.
This tool is a must have for achieving glowing skin by toning, smoothing and reducing puffiness.
5. Femme Faire Layered Tassel Earrings
Oh man, there are no words for how gorgeous these Layered Tassel Earrings from Femme Faire are. Any lover of pretty, unique accessories would be smitten to get these as a gift.
Not only are they stunning but are handmade in Cambodia by artisans of Penh Lenh and each purchase supports a hopeful future for young women artisans.
6. Saje Natural Wellness Night and Day Remedy Bar
There’s nothing quite like essential oils to get you through your day. If you’re on the hunt for a supportive gift for a woman who prioritizes wellness, I’d bet on the Night and Day Remedy Bar from Saje Natural Wellness.
She can drift off to sleep with smells of lavender and rise with smells of peppermint. These rollers will support her wellness throughout the day.
Saje Natural Wellness has a beautiful selection of supportive essential oil products for a number of things including skincare and household items. For the holidays, Saje has curated a Holiday guide to make shopping simple.
7. Untamed by Glennon Doyle
Hands down, one of the BEST books I’ve ever read. If you’re shopping for a woman who loves the power of storytelling and is always digging deeper, Untamed by Glennon Doyle is a game changer.
Described as the “patron saint of female empowerment”, bestselling author Glennon Doyle shares her personal story to show the liberation women can experience when they stop living for the approval of others and start trusting their own inner voice.
I kid you not, this book blew my mind and I could read it 100 times over.
8. Custom Map
First, I’m a sucker for a sweet personalized gift. Know a woman like that? I adore the sentiment behind this Custom Map from Sun Wall Art and the colours are stunning, making it a beautiful piece of decor as well.
I think this would make such a beautiful gift to remember something special by. For example, my husband and I were engaged when we lived in Guelph, Ontario. Since then we’ve moved home to the Niagara Region but Guelph has always been a special place for us.
9. A Pretty Little Mug
I am quite confident I am not the only lover of all things mugs! It’s also a great way to support local businesses like potters.
I love this Heart Mug from Hue La La. It’s a great gift on it’s own for something like a Secret Santa or paired with Living Apothecary tea and cozy knit socks for the perfect little self care package.
10. Wellness Weighted Eye Mask
If you’ve experienced the relaxing benefits of a weighted blanket, here’s a mini version. Any woman in need of a little R&R and a good nights sleep would be a well rested one with this Wellness Weighted Eye Mask.
11. I Wear My Heart on My Sleeve Shirt
It’s butter soft and has elbow patches – need I say more! If she’s into comfort first but still wants something cute, this I Wear My Heart on My Sleeve shirt from Lex and Ten checks all the boxes!
I absolutely love that Lex and Ten has created a sustainably crafted, Canadian made line of home office apparel that is both comfortable and chic.
OK there you have it! Eleven gifts for the women in your life. Happy Shopping!
