Holiday Gift Guide for Her

Holiday Gift Guide for Her

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!

Here’s my ultimate holiday gift guide for her.

Adidas Ultra Boost Sneakers in Triple White

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!


Fujifilm polaroid photos

2. 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!

You can also get this cute lil carrying case for it.


3. Portable photo printer

For people who would more likely print out photos from their phone than take photos on a polaroid camera, this portable HP printer is an absolutely adorable gift idea.


Floral phone case, matcha latte, and Kindle flat lay

4. Kindle Paperwhite

I know many people are against e-readers because they like the physicality of reading paper books, but seriously, once you start reading on a Kindle, it’s hard to go back.

It’s just so easy to carry around on-the-go, and you can easily switch between different books if you finish or get bored of one!


5. Record player or turntable

A Crosley turntable is actually on my wishlist right now (teehee).

The one I linked has a Bluetooth receiver that allows you to stream music to it wirelessly!

It also looks great as a home decor piece 😉


S'well water bottle

6. 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.

Calvin Klein Sports Bras

7. 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!


8. Handmade jewelry

You can never go wrong with jewelry, and getting something handmade is much more special and unique.

This rainbow quartz necklace is gorgeous and comes in a variety of colours.

Plus, it’s handmade locally here in Toronto!

9. 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.


The best MAC lipsticks for spring and summer

10. 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.


Yankee Candle

11. 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.


12. A Keurig coffee machine


I don’t know how I’d survive without my Keurig machine.

I use it to make coffee, tea, and even oatmeal (I’m too lazy to boil water).

It’s a functional gift idea for your favourite coffee drinker!


Holiday gift ideas for her:

  1. A cool pair of sneakers
  2. Polaroid camera
  3. Portable photo printer
  4. Kindle Paperwhite
  5. Record player or turntable
  6. Calvin Klein bralette
  7. S’well water bottle
  8. Handmade jewelry
  9. Fjallraven Kanken backpack

I hope you all have a safe, amazing, and wonderful holiday! 😊
