The Perfect Toque (or Knitted Hat)
This one is my absolute favourites. I mean, look at my face… don’t I look happy?! Perfect for when the snow starts to fly. Nothing beats the combination of stylish and warm, for the season!
These Minted gems, are our family cards, this year. I chose the “picture of the year” that stuck out in my mind, as pure joy — my daughter running through the sandy, shallow lakes, entering Jasper National Park. We had such a blast that day! At only a couple dollars each, (and with foil print detail?!) — they’re sure to please. (Pssst — You can even get all your envelopes addressed in a coordinating font! Whaaaaaa??!)
No joke, this has been my favourite lip balm since I was a teen. Smells good, works great — and, who doesn’t want soft, yummy lips, in the frosty weather? Pop a cute bow on it, and you’re done!
Caramel, chocolate. Need I say more? This has been a favourite of mine for as long as I can remember — I only ever seem to eat them at Christmas, and look forward to them every year.

This is the beeeeest, you guys! I have one in my make-up cubby, AND a back-up in my fridge! I’ve been wearing it for years and don’t plan on stopping any time soon. It’s waterproof but without the hassle of removing it. All you need it warm water, no tugging.
The latest book by the loveable duo, John and Sherry, from Young House Love. I haven’t yet had the chance to get my paws on this one. But I plan to!
Simple. Understated. Pretty. It’s the perfect everyday addition to the wardrobe. A little peak-a-boo on your collarbone, under those winter-warm, buffalo-check fleece shirts? Yes please.

I know, it’s cute. It also comes in red and aqua… EEEeeee! And the most adorable teapot award goes to…
We could all use a little relaxing treat every now and then, for those hard working feet. Even better when it comes as a gift… *a-hem* Steve… if you’re reading this, just sayin’… I’ve been wanting to try this place.
How pretty are these? Comes in various colours (bonus!). I thought it would also make a cute makeup bag. Win-win.
