Real talk: I start planning and pulling out decorations for the holidays as soon as Halloween passes. My love for this time of year is undeniable, and yesterday marked the first day of December…which means it’s now acceptable to be full-speed-ahead on the holiday train to pure bliss! That magical morning is only 23 sleeps away, so it’s time to get checking those names off your list, so you have more time to relax and enjoy some holiday baking 🙂 Last week I posted my Holiday Gift Guide under $50 and today we’re kicking it up a notch. I decided to do a Holiday Git Guide under $200, yes, under $100 feels like the next natural step, but let’s face it, most online stuff is in US prices and our poor Canadian dollar ain’t doing so hot right now. I’ve included tons of items that hit just above $50, and only a few items will break that $150 mark. Check out all the goodies below!

1 – Who doesn’t want a cozy Turkish cotton bathrobe to wrap themselves in? Plus you can personalize it. Warning: massage and fancy spa water not included.

2 – Umm…did anyone else see that Everlane launched a small collection of leather goods handmade in Spain? This nude clutch would make the perfect gift, no matter how picky the recipient – it’s classic.

3 – Cluse knows what’s up. With so many minimalist watch companies out there, they still stand out and continue to impress. This rose gold and silver mesh version is the perfect example of how mixing metals can work, or try this velvet style for a holiday inspired twist on a classic design.

4 – #deskgoals. That’s all I’m saying about this.

5 – Who wants glowing skin during the driest months of the year? ME! Body oil is a great finishing product to lock in moisture, and this one from Nars would make a luxurious gift to do just that.

6 – Military inspired pieces were a big trend this season, and this skirt from J.Crew is a timeless piece that would be an amazing addition to any closet.

7 – This palette is beautiful, inside and out, perfect for any beauty junkie.

8 – Got someone on your list who’s got the travel bug? Send them off in style with this marble carry-on, there’s a black version here if you prefer.

9 – More marble, sorry, but not really. Personalize this board with your gift recipients first initial, and maybe even put together a little cheese board kit for a nice homemade touch.

10 – Imagine if you could print your Instagram photos as soon as you snap them. Oh wait, you can with this guy!

11 – This kit contains everything one would need to create a complete look – makeup lover’s would scream if this was under their tree. Trust me.

12 – The season just calls for cozy, and this sweater is just that.

13 – I’m sure there’s a shoe lover on your list, these velvet beauties come in 3 different shades, depending on what your, I mean their, preference is.

14 – These boots are sure to please – and they’re on sale, so don’t wait!

15 – This sweater is perfect for that someone who loves to travel.

16 – I always used to get pajama’s on Christmas eve so I could wear them for Christmas morning, so they hold a special place in my heart for this time of year. This vintage inspired set is classic, so they could be worn year-round too!

17 – Why not add a cheeky message, and bring a smile to someones face when they unwrap this letterboard.

18 – Give the gift of art this year and share a piece that inspires you. This is by far some of my favourite artwork and the simplicity and neutral colour palette could work in any home.

19 – This holiday set filled with Skin Inc’s brightening essentials is sure to brighten up anyone’s holiday!

20 – Give someone a little piece of luxury with this lip colour from Tom Ford.

Try to keep the “one for you, one for me” to a minimum. I know. It’s challenging.

Until next time,
