Deck the halls and light the Menorah because the season of giving is UPON us!!
Being the most sought after Secret Santa gift giver takes a lot of hard work and years of experience but someones got to do it! I'm here to give some inspiration on gifts that will drive your loved ones MAD! (in a good way).
Before we begin. .. If the gift receiver in question has provided you with a LIST the first order of business is to give it a quick once over and then immediately throw it into the shredder. Giving someone something they want is predictable and lame! I mean WHERE is the fun in that?! People ask for things they NEED – and the best gifts are always the things that people never knew they needed - which makes gift giving like building a successful business!
Today, I’ve included a wide spectrum of gifts for HER - both expensive and basically free – because being poor is no excuse to be a horrible gift giver.
Swell Water Bottle
Its trendy, its practical, it’s timeless.
Calcatta Gold S'well bottle is available HERE
Sting Ray S'well bottle is available HERE
Tea + Book
Nothing is a bigger waste of money and a better gift than overpriced tea from a tin bought from a concept store!! Talk about making someone feel like a million bucks! Also the gift of literature is sooo under-rated. I have a personal agenda of bettering the people around me so that in turn they can better me – so I will be buying every person in my life a 5 Minute Journal (which I talked about in my last post).
The Five Minute Journal is available HERE
Best in Black Loose Leaf Tea Box Set is available HERE
Less Monday More Coffee Ceramic is available HERE
Tea Tin Gift Set is available HERE
Daniel Wellington Watch
The gift of time!! These watches are so nice and simple!!
The Classic Petite Durham Daniel Wellington in Rose Gold is available HERE
Hudson’s Bay Striped Blanket
These are really nice and date back to the dawn of time. Great for cottages or every day snuggling. Something every Canadian wants but nobody would go out and buy for themselves- which is where you come in.
The Hudson's Bay Company Iconic Point Blanket Multi-Stripe blanket is available HERE
Cinema Light Box Signs
I can guarantee even the most critical of your loved ones will appreciate the most on trend home décor piece of the year!
The Cinema Light Box signs are available HERE
Even if your gift receiver isn’t a coffee drinker, a Nespresso machine is the ultimate kitchen accessory that just radiates the concept of an elegant lifestyle!!
The Essence Mini Espresso Machine is available HERE
People are really into astrology lately so I can say with certainty most people would be flattered by the idea of you thinking they were edgy enough to value Tarot Cards! Heck why not throw in a Ouija board too?!
DIY – Build your own calendar
Making something with your own two hands might initially disappoint your recipient as we are all self-serving capitalists after all – but eventually any decent person will recognize the sweet thought and effort that went into handmade gifts! This is an especially good gift for a significant other. Hire a photographer or get crafty with the photo booth app on your mac book and make your own calendar to remind your loved one of how lucky they are to have you every single day of the year!
Basket of useless cute crap
I’m talking Squish gummies, Kate Spade pencils, a beauty blender AND hand cream. – These are so so fun to build and even more fun to receive!! It’s a great way to trick the recipient into thinking they are getting a really big and thoughtful gift!!
The gift that keeps on giving!! (As long as your recipient is ok with spending excess on film). Not only is a polaroid camera the quintessential millennial party trick, it doubles as a killer way to spice up your Instagram! Featuring polaroids on your Instagram is a great way to add a little edginess to your otherwise mediocre feed.
Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic Instant Camera - Two Toned Brown is available HERE
