A gift guide for girlfriends. (Also me. I love everything here too.)

For Christmas I like to treat my girlfriends to a little luxury — not necessarily something expensive, but something they wouldn’t buy themselves. With that in mind, here’s my gift guide for girlfriends. (And also me: I love everything here for me!) The gifts range from $8 to $105 and are all available online. 


For the girlfriend who needs to chill: Saje Wellness stress release tension-reducing massage oil ($7.95). Also nice (short of listing everything!): the Road to Wellness Aromacar Diffuser Kit $39.95 and the Night & Day Remedy Bar ($47.95).



Urban Outfitters’ Artist Print Holiday Tin Candles and Artist Print Tin Candles (2 for $24). Candles from Blackett & Co (from $18) Foxhound Collection ($16) and Charleston & Harlow (from $14) all look wonderful too.


For the girfriend with a sweet tooth: Squish Candies’ Home for the Holidays gummies (2 for $20) and Decadent Collection gummies (2 for $20), both gluten free, non GMO and free of artificial colours. Also fun (and I’m sure delicious — Squish gummies are SO GOOD!): Year’s Best gummies ($35).



For the girlfriend who likes to feather her nest: Domino: Your Guide to a Stylish Home by domino editors Jessica Romm Pereze and Shani Silver ($40). Also fun: Domino magazine iPad and iPhone subscription ($19.99), Style At Home magazine subscription (one year, $23.95).


My Cinema Lightbox mini ($29.95 USD). Bonus: add an extra pack of letters in vibrant colours ($7.99 USD).


For the girlfriend who likes a nice cup of tea: DAVIDsTEA’s Apple Cider (tea) filled tree ornament and hot chocolate (tea) filled gingerbread man ornament (3 for $20). Also sweet: Warm & Cozy teas gift box ($28) and David’s tea chest ($65).


For the girlfriend who commutes (by bus, train or foot) or works out: Sudio Sweden VASA BLÅ earphones ($105). They’re Bluetooth-enabled, have excellent sound, are super lightweight and have eight hours of battery life. For 15% off, shop this link and use the code TrySmallThings.



Other little extras: Reindeer and snowman cookies from Second Cup (sorry, those are only in store, 2 for $3.25) and Urban Outfitters’ Monogram Glitter Ornaments (2 for $14). Wrap and ribbon, Minted.

And for your foodie friends: How about custom-made cereal or a tasty subscription box like The Taste Box or SnackBreak? A cookbook wrapped in a pretty tea towel and tied with baker’s twine would be thoughtful too.

What do you think? Will you use any of these gift ideas? What’s your favourite gift idea for girlfriends?

Sudio Sweden sent me a pair of earphones to facilitate this post, however all my opinions are my own. You know how much I love them

    There are some wonderful ideas there. In my girls world, if we can drink it, eat it, or read it ,,, better still do all 3 at once,we are pretty happy chicks. ( The drinking and eating together makes it all the better). Sounds like we are a bunch of boozers…. NOT….. love the social aspects.
    Great pics….. lots and lots of lovely detailing.
