It’s finally that time of the year, and stores are decking their shelves in holiday cheer. In an ideal world, I’d get my Christmas shopping done before malls start flooding with holiday crowds. I usually end up buying all my gifts during the week of Christmas, which is absolutely terrible, but it’s so hard to find the time and to come up with thoughtful gifts.
To make it easier for those of you who don’t have a clue on what to get for your girlfriend, your sister, or your best friend, I’ve put together a list of cool gift ideas for this holiday. These are all things I either own or want and love, so you’re bound to find something in this list they will also enjoy!

1. A cool pair of sneakers
Sneakers are the easiest everyday shoe to wear, so why not get a cute pair for her to wear year-round? Converse and Adidas are my fave sneaker brands!
2. A polaroid camera
I remember in elementary school when I brought my disposable camera to school, and the excitement I felt when I used up all the film and could finally have the photos developed. I miss the physicality of taking photos, and not knowing how the photos turned out until you developed them. This is why I love my Instax Mini 8, and why I think it’s an amazing gift!
3. A Calvin Klein bralette
I love wearing my CK cotton wear while lounging around at home. It makes me feel really cute, and it’s also super comfy. Any girl would love a pair of these!
4. A S’well water bottle
S’well bottles are the best water bottles in the entire universe. They actually keep drinks cold for hours and hours (supposedly 24, but I haven’t tested that out yet). I haven’t tried hot liquids yet, but I definitely will this winter.
5. A Fjallraven Kanken backpack
You might’ve seen these hip Swedish backpacks around. They’re actually really functional, and the mini ones are adorable. I found this cute burnt orange one at NEON on Queen West.
6. A Yankee Candle
Candles are always a great gift idea, because who doesn’t like having their place smell nice? Yankee Candles look pretty and have a wide range of scents.
7. A MAC Cosmetics lipstick
I buy most of my lipsticks from MAC because they’re such great quality and have such a wide variety of shades. I recommend “Dark Side“, “Rebel“, or “MAC Red” for holiday gifts because they’re great shades for fall and winter.
8. A pair of Vasa Blå wireless earphones from Sudio Sweden
These wireless earphones from Sudio Sweden feature studio quality sound, compatibility with all bluetooth devices, a built-in microphone, up to 8 hours of usage, and a cute leather carrying case. These earphones are the most aesthetic accessory I own, and they look great in any Insta photo. You can use my code “DIARYOFATORONTOGIRL” for a 15% off discount. Thanks to Sudio Sweden for gifting this to me!
