The Ultimate 2021 Gift Guide For All
In this blog post, Olivia + Laura share their ultimate gift guide to help you check everyone off your list this year.
Welcome to the holiday season! The most joyous time of year and the most stressful where everyone rushes to buy gifts and create lists for their loved ones. Lucky for you, we have been making our Christmas lists since November and have some of the best ideas for her, for him and everyone else.
Send this list to your loved ones so they get some hints, too!
Gifts for Her (it's us, we are her)
Mejuri Chain Bracelet
If you don't know what to gift the female in your life, then the Mejuri Bold Link Chain Bracelet should be in your shopping cart! It is delicate and elegant and can be paired with almost any other bracelet or watch. You can't go wrong with this one.
Pilgrim Pearl Necklace
Pearls are all the rave this 2021-2022 season so, why not subtly incorporate them with this Kathrine 2 in 1 necklace from Pilgrim. For the affordable price of 59$, someone (or you) can receive 4 layered necklaces. Merry Christmas to you, am I right?
If you live with cold-weather, then boots should be on your holiday list. Boots can be expensive so let's make someone else buy us the things we need. This pair from Mango screams our name and, we're looking forward to seeing them under the tree.
If you are an adult and don't have a coat yet, something is wrong! A good coat can go a long way and, we recommend this wool blend one from Zara. It is the perfect addition to any winter outfit, stay warm while still looking chic!
2022 is all about self-love and growth but, we can't start the year without knowing how to break old patterns. If you're looking to achieve these goals or know someone is, then these books are here to help. 101 Essays That Will Change The Way You Think and The Mountain is You are Briana West books and, they are our holiday reads this season. Other book ideas include: What I Wish I Knew About Love by Kirsty Taylor and anything written by Colleen Hoover.
Sephora Favorites- Clean Me Up Kit
Not sure what to get someone but know they love skincare? The Sephora Clean Me Up Kit is the perfect treat. This clean beauty kit is filled with six full and travel-sized cult favourites and comes with a cute cosmetics bag. We will wait as you checkout at Sephora.
Daily Sleeper Party Pajama Set
When we think of boujee, we think of these pyjamas. The price point on these PJ's is a little high but, all materials are ethically crafted and sustainable. If you're looking to splurge and have an event (or an Instagram picture) to show off these pyjamas, then this gift is for you. Check out the Sleeper website for more.
Gifts for Him
I don't think there's much to be said about this gift except that it works. Honestly, we would consider buying the Manscaped Perfect Package for its play on words (ex: the lawnmower). But don't take our word for it, users call it "the best shave downstairs".
Not to generalize, but most men do not have an adequate skincare routine and we're here to change that. Kiehls has the solution with this full-face treatment kit perfect for the men in your life. A skincare set is a perfect gift for your dad, brother or babe!
Whether you're shopping for Dad or Daddy, that man in your life needs a beard kit. The unruly beard is not a vibe, so help these men take care of their facial hair. Urban Beard has a great selection of options and has bundles to get more bang for you buck.
Men are bound to be gifted socks this year, so why not buy them a pair they'll love. Nike Crew Socks make the perfect stocking stuffer and, they are sure to keep their toes warm and toasty. For only $30, get them for all the men in your life.
Puffer vests have made a comeback in recent years, and they fit every man's sense of style. This is the universal gift for men (after socks, of course) and, they will surely thank you for it. Check out Uniqlo Ultra Light Down Vest for easy shopping.
Nike Killshot 2 Sneakers
For the sneaker heads in your life, these Nike Killshot 2 sneakers are a classic tennis shoe that truly goes with any outfit! Taking the basic white tennis shoe to a new level. We're so obsessed with these, we're gonna need a pair for ourselves!
Cologne, just like perfume, is a staple in everyone's life so it clearly makes for the perfect gift! Whether the man in your life already has a signature scent or is looking for one, it is a great go-to gift or even a stocking stuffer! If you're looking for something more higher-end, we love anything Jo Malone. If you're shopping on a budget, another great cologne is Calvin Klein's Eternity for Men.
Gifts for Them
If you live in a city where the winters are freezing, winter accessories are always a must have — you can never have enough. The perfect gift idea for when you're not entirely sure what to get someone or don't know them well enough. Check out this Wynn Hat & Scarf Set from Matt&Nat, suitable for both men and women!
Insulated Water Bottle
You can't go wrong with an insulated water bottle. It has quickly become a staple in everyone's household. Perfect little gift for a stocking stuffer or your friendly gym buff. If you're looking to splurge, we suggest a HydroFlask or Swell. If you're shopping on a budget, we suggesting checking Costco!
There's one good thing that came from this pandemic and it's normalizing loungewear. We basically lived in sweatsuits for an entire year and we're not mad about it. The perfect gift for that friend or loved one who just loves to feel comfy. Check out Zara or Aritzia for nice matching sweatsuits for both men and women!
Digital Photo Frame
If you're looking for a thoughtful, more personalized gift, we suggest a digital photo frame! They are a little pricey but can display any picture you want instead of the standard one photo per frame. This sleek, black digital photo frame from Amazon easily connects to any phone and displays your photos! Perfect for the special people in your life!
Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag
If you've been on TikTok recently, you know that this Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag has been trending and there's a reason. It is designed for those who are always on the move and fit all of your essentials. This unisex bag comes in 18 different colours and is only $38! Make sure to grab one before they sell out again!
The perfect gift for the friend or family member who loves to host or make cocktails! Everything you need for the perfect cocktail is in this gold barware kit from Indigo which would be complete with a mixology recipe book to help them perfect their craft.
There is nothing cozier than a wearable blanket. With holes for your arms, and sometimes a hood, you are bound to keep warm. Perfect for a gloomy winter day! Check out this 3-in-1 Wrap Throw and Blanket from Linen Chest for only $40! Or this more chic wearable blanket from Indigo.
