I Gift My Best

Last-Minute Gift Ideas

Christmas is only a few short days away! *Alarm/Sleigh Bells*

Some of us are busy or have trouble finding the perfect gifts for those who (it feels as though) already have everything, which may lead to procrasti-gifting. Worry not, here’s a mini gift guide I’ve curated so you don’t have to search high and low for fabulous ideas around Bower Place.

Glam Gal

For the ones who love to sparkle and shine, from head to hands.

These Hudson’s Bay choices are from Catherine O’Hara and Annie Murphy’s picks (who play the ultimate Glam Gals), so you know they’re gooders.

For those who like floral scents, Tom Ford’s Parfum is a great choice. It has notes of Black Truffle, Ylang Ylang, and Black Orchid among many other luxurious smells. I’m usually not a floral scent gal, but I enjoy the smell of this one as it’s warm and luxurious at the same time as delicately floral.

The dainty, minimalist Tennis Bracelet still has enough sparkle for any Glam Gal. Plus, their hair will thank you for getting a silk pillowcase; hypoallergenic, and oh-so-smooth, this one’s a must. Also, gold hoops = gorgeous.

BRB, binge-watching Schitt’s Creek again.

Fitness Lover

Maybe your BFF or loved one would rather spend a Sunday morning going for a jog instead of grabbing brunch. These are for the loved ones who always push you to try that new spin class at 6:00am (it’s a love-hate thing).

They can chuck on the vest for a warm, water-resistant layer for their brisk morning runs, or the Champion Crew for pre-yoga class meditation, prepared with a cork block to aid their yoga pursuits, and a gorg metallic bottle to stay hydrated.

Wellness Junkie

For the one who always has an essential oil recommendation (p.s.: Have you tried Liquid Sunshine®, my personal fave diffuser blend from Saje Natural Wellness, yet?), or whose idea of fun is face masks on Fridays. Why not a gorgeous limited-edition diffuser? Or, little somethings to supplement their self-care nights, because they’re the ones who do it best.

p.s.: These gift ideas don’t need to be limited to your Wellness Junkie friend — we’re all needing a little extra wellness right now.

Whether they go for a chic, minimalist look with their rings, or prefer to stack ‘em, the best-selling Wishbone Ring from Pandora is a great find. Or, maybe you’d like to enjoy a virtual coffee date with an adorable monogrammed mug?

Wish your bestie great style, sleep, and smells with these gems.

OK, so most stuff tends to be cuter in kids’ sizing but COME ON — look at this mini Biker Jacket from H&M! This one exceeds the cuteness scale. Plus, a onesie with adorable hedgehogs? *Gasp*

Spark curiosity with a rock tumbler kit for the older kiddo, or an adorable toy llama for the babies.

Marketing Coordinator

Maia is a classic Central Albertan gal who KNOWS her way around Bower Place . . . she grew up exploring it! If she’s not scouting the best of The Great Indoors, she’s probably strapping on her hiking pack to escape to the mountains or grabbing her cowboy boots (she’ll never say “no” to a rodeo). She has a love of free-spirited 70s vibes including eclectic accessories, bright colours, and fun patterns.
