Holiday Gift Guide & Giveaway!

The weather here in Toronto has been amazing this week. You wouldn’t be able tell that Christmas is only 49 days away! However, when you venture out to the stores you will see the shelves being quickly filled with Christmas stuff. It is not too soon to start your holiday shopping if you are planning on shopping online!

I have put together a holiday gift guide from some fabulous shops on Etsy. For those who are not familiar with Etsy, it is an online marketplace where you can find some great handmade and vintage gifts whether for yourself (yes, I pretend I get a gift when I buy something online and get excited when opening it) or someone else in your life.

Check out the bottom of this post for a fun giveaway!


For the scarf lover 

You can never have too many scarves especially as unique as this one from Squishy Hugs Design. Ok I am a little biased when it comes to scarves. I am a big scarf lover so subconsciously (or consciously) a scarf made it to the top of the gift guide.

  1. Congratulations to contest winners Krista M. and Christine T. who will be getting their pretty scarves soon!
    Since this giveaway was such a success we will doing a giveaway again early in the new year for our fans and followers! So keep in touch!


  2. I would like to win a necklace. I loved the Gold Infinity Necklace, Tiny Necklace, Infinity Necklace, Simple Necklace, Maid of Honor Gift.


  3. I would like to win a scarf. You have so many pretty ones, but I prefer the ones that aren’t chunky. I love everything but solid white as I find it gets dirty easily from my makeup. Thank you for the chance.


  4. I love the guitar pick that says I pick you. Great gift ideas. I would like to win the necklace or the guitar pick if that’s an option. Thank-you.
