If you’ve been invited to a party and don’t know what to bring or you’ve waited until the last minute to buy your holiday gifts, don’t worry. Starting at $15, I’ve got you covered for all of your gift needs! Here are my top fave holiday finds, collected from some of my fave stores!
THE COZIEST PJ’S
These are the cutest festive PJ’s! They’re made of a thin waffle fabric which is so soft and cozy. They also make an identical pair for kids (boys section).

ALL THE HOLIDAY SMELLS CANDLE
This candle smells like fresh apple cider is brewing in your kitchen.
Cinnamon & Mulled Cider Mini Mercury Candle, Indigo
SALTED CARAMEL CHOCOLATES
The perfect combo of dark chocolate, salt and chewy caramel. Makes for a great gift or put out in a cute little dish on your counter throughout the holidays for guests to enjoy.
Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels, available through Amazon or Costco, Sanders Fine Chocolates
ORGANIC CHARCUTERIE BOARD
I love this rustic board. You can make it work with any dinner party look from cottage to contemporary. Great host gift too!
Olive Wood Rustic Cutting Board, West Elm
Take your bar set up to the next level with these adorable candy bowls.
Crinkle Pink and Gold Bowl, CB2
MINI GINGERBREAD HOUSE COOKIE CUTTERS
I love anything that can double as a gift and activity. Kids will love making little houses out of the cookies.
4-Pack Cookie Cutters, Gold, H & M
REAL LIFE SPEAKER
One of my all time favourite items in our home. We have them throughout the house, and we use them daily. From anywhere in the room we can ask google to turn the music on, change the song or artist, turn volume up or down or even ask what time it is. Great hostess gift too at only $35 it does not break the bank!
Google Home Mini, in Charcoal, Google
FESTIVE HOLIDAY CARDS
These chic cards are such a nice touch for the holidays. Use them to wish someone a happy holiday or better yet, order them as a gift. You can order custom monogrammed cards too! Check out her website to see more of her curated designs!
Festive Holiday Note Cards, Paperdoll Studio
Not only are these handmade chocolates delicious, but each one is quite literally a piece of art.
Nutcracker Collection 9 Piece Box, CXBO Chocolates
GOLD RIM GLASSES
I am such a sucker for gold accents these days. Too much of it can be, well too much, but just a touch is so pretty. My trip to London made me fall even more in love with gold. Grab these glasses for the perfect gold gift!
Cut Stemless Wine Glasses – Set of 2, Indigo
NOT YOUR AVERAGE ICE BUCKET
It’s such a challenge to find a functional and beautiful ice bucket. I obviously love the vintage vibe this one has. Grab it before the holiday sale is over and you can get it for $45 cad (regular $75 cad).
Intertwine Glass and Stainless Steel Ice Bucket, CB2
MULTIPURPOSE STORAGE BASKET
Baskets are all the rage these days. There’s no better way to store your stuff, hide the mess or better yet use as cute little planter. I personally grabbed this one for my office and stuck a nice little snake plant in it. Tip: if you are going to use as a planter, grab a plastic saucer from the plant shop and that will hold the water. For $34.50, you can’t go wrong.
Seagrass Basket, Natural & White, Small, Indigo
