With the darker, colder days I always double down on my self-care at this time of year. I love all the K’Pure products and use them regularly as part of my skin-care routine. They’re Canadian-made, with a female founder, and they focus on clean beauty. I’ve given them to my bestie, my mom and even my daughters!

 The K’Pure Drenched hydrating lavender/citrus Whipped Face and Body Butter is definitely a favourite. It has the consistency of a whipped butter that melts on contact with your skin. I use it morning and evening (on top of my regular moisturizers) to keep my skin well hydrated and protected. It also smells like a fancy spa! 

K’Pure Drenched Body Butter, $23

The Lohn ‘Noisette’ Cinnamon & Hazelnut Candle is most definitely on my Christmas wish list this year! For starters, I can’t get enough of the art on the packaging and it comes contained in the most beautiful coloured glass. Although I have many candles, I believe you can never have too many! And this one brings back sweet childhood memories of warm cookies baking in the oven. 

LOHN Holiday Candle, $44

 

Josie

I love all things sparkly so this cute Bottle Brush Christmas Tree Set is at the top of my list! They’re a perfect addition for a mantlepiece or really any part of a room that’s in need of some holiday charm. And who isn’t constantly looking to add to their Christmas deco’ collection?? 

Bottle Brush Glitter Trees, Set of 3, $35

 

Angela

My top gift pick is candles. I love layered lighting in my home to make it cozy and inviting throughout the winter. The Lucia and Lohn candles have too many lovely scents to pick just one! My favourite candle for December is the Danish Advent Candle. We have a candlelight dinner every night as we count down the days until Christmas. 

Danish Advent Candle, $23

I’m probably going to give this lil’ Maple Leaf Ornament to my mum back home. While I know she’d love everything Oleander has in the gift shop, (teaspoons are already on their way to her) she is a sucker for cute Christmas tree ornaments that remind her of a particular time or experience. This wee ornament will obviously remind her of her favourite child who lives across the ocean! 

Wooden Maple Leaf Ornament, $4

 

Katie

I'm picking the ever-popular Pokoloko Artisan-Made Cozy Cardigan. It now comes in TWO shades of pink! I would gift one of these to my beautiful sissy-in-law. She's my style icon, always looking perfectly put-together, and often in something pink, or leopard print. This would be a great addition to her sweater collection and I’m sure she'd have fun dressing it up or down! 

Pokoloko Cozy Cardigan, $65 short / $80 long

 

Bonnie

I love to host get-togethers. It brings me joy to put together a meal for people I care about and spend time with them. I would love to receive the Botanical Burnished Wood Board with a few jars from Salt Spring Island Kitchen Co. The Onion & Thyme Spread and Candied Jalapeños are favourites, but all of their items would elevate any charcuterie board. 

Salt Spring Kitchen Co. $14; Botanical Burnished Board, S $22 / L $42

 

Jen

The Tofino Towel Cove Throw would be the perfect gift for me because receiving a beautiful blanket is like getting a warm hug. It would be perfect to cuddle up with in front of the fire on these cold and dark nights.

Tofino Towel Cove Throw, $135

 

Robin

Anyone at the shop will tell you that I’m always cold, and I can confirm, that personally speaking, if the temperature outside is under 25 degrees, then it’s definitely too cold! So when these soft, Pokoloko Alpaca Toques arrived, I knew immediately that this would be a gift I’d love to receive, but also to give! They come in three beautiful colours that I can’t resist, because anyone who knows me, knows I love a blush tone! 

Pokoloko Cosy Beanie, $15
