I think one of the reasons people stress during the holidays is that they feel the need to search for the perfect gift! With so many different people to shop for, it can be hard to find the right gift that you can feel good about giving.
I’ve put together a list of some of my favorite finds from Scarborough Town Centre (STC) into a Holiday Gift Guide, and I’m hoping it will give you some fun ideas on what to give your loved ones. Everything listed is in the shopping centre right now, so if you see something you love, be sure to head over and grab it before it’s gone!
Gifts for Her
Whenever I think of what to buy a girlfriend, mother or other fabulous women in my life I know I always gravitate towards some sparkle! I just love this Kiley Rose Gold-Tone Watch and Bracelet set from Michael Kors. What’s great is the fact that they wrap it for you so you don’t need to do a thing – just give it to someone you love!
Sephora has an amazing line of gift sets for the holidays that any girl would love! One of my favourites is the Sephora Give Me More Lip set – it has 15 lipsticks so you can try a few and see what you love before buying the full-size version.
Gifts for Him
Guys can be so hard to buy for, but there are some things that you just know they will love! For instance, who wouldn’t love a drone? This ultra light DJI Spark Drone can be controlled with your phone, and understands commands made with your hands. I basically just want to get this for my husband so I can borrow it!
I have a FitBit myself, and I just love how it changes my outlook on my activity. This FitBit Alta HR is lightweight, and is the perfect accessory for someone who wants to start tracking their activity. I also love that it can track how many hours you sleep at night.
Gifts for Kids
My son actually already has a lightsaber, but once he saw one of his friends with this particular version he couldn’t stop talking about it! The Disney Store Rey Lightsaber glows brighter than any of the other versions and it makes some really cool sound effects!
With Frozen 2 coming out soon, it’s no surprise that every child still loves Anna and Elsa! The Anna and Elsa Classic Doll set from The Disney Store is a gift any child would love! These dolls have so much detail that they will surely be any child’s favourite.
I’m not sure what it is, but it seems like every child loves to pretend to cook. It must be because they want to copy their parents! This Minnie Mouse Cooking Playset from The Disney Store is not only adorable, but it looks like it would keep any child happy to play along like a grown up.
Gifts for your Significant Other
I think it’s the most fun to give a gift to the one you love! And it’s truly enjoyable to give them something you know they will love. Maybe you can even borrow once they open it.
I love the idea of giving someone the CROSLEY Cruiser Deluxe Vinyl Turntable. I love vinyl myself.. so it’s great that Hudson’s Bay is selling retro turntables in a variety of colours and styles – it’s trendy all over again!
The holidays are the perfect time to start reading a new book, and Indigo Spirit has one of the hottest books of the year called The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*CK. What better time to start up a new and enlightening book than over the holidays?
Gifts for the Home
The Hudson’s Bay Company Perfect All Season Throw is such a classic touch to add to anyone’s home. Whether it’s displayed on a couch, or tucked away and ready for chilly winter nights, anyone would love receiving this gorgeous throw.
This fun holiday candle from Indigo is the perfect trinket to add to either a stocking, or just as a host or hostess gift! The scent is very subtle and the packaging is cute enough that you could just add a bow on top!
Gifts for Foodies
Macarons are ALWAYS a good idea! Especially for a foodie! Nadege has just arrived at STC, and their box of 12 assorted macarons is the perfect gift for anyone on your list, especially someone who appreciates food!
Hudson’s Bay has an amazing selection of Kate Spade home products, and their Kate Spade New York Decorative Prep Board Set is the perfect gift for someone who appreciates a pretty kitchen!
I hope this holiday gift guide gave you some great tips on what to buy this holiday season! Don’t forget, you can find all of these gifts right now in-store at the Scarborough Town Centre.
