Styling the Inside Last-Minute Holiday Gift-Guide

Can you believe we are less than 10 days away from Christmas!?

For those of you still shopping for those last-minute gifts, I’ve created a last-minute gift guide to help take some stress and anxiety off your shoulders during the anxiety-inducing countdown to Christmas!

I know first-hand it feels extremely relieving when everyone’s finally crossed off my Christmas list. For this reason, every year I like to help you feel this sense of relief by creating this guide.

It feels so good on the inside when the gift buying is done so we can relax and enjoy quality time with our loved ones.

Most of these gift ideas are Canadian, local and some even give back to important causes.

Ok enough said.

I know what you`re probably thinking.

“Let’s see the goods!” 

Give the gift of functional playwear for the kiddos in your life

My daughter lives in her Peekaboo Beans clothing and I’m always raving about how much I love this brand to other mamas!

If you have a playful, active child in your life that you still need to buy a gift for this season then perhaps some clothing they can skip, hop, jump, climb and play in would be ideal?

I checked off some of the kiddos on my list with some Peekaboo Beans, and the winter jacket I bought for my daughter last Christmas is so warm and stylish (she’s still wearing it this season!)

Give the gift of health from the inside out 



“Collagen is one of the most important structural components in our body, representing 1/15th of our total body weight. This fiber-shaped protein plays an extremely important role in ensuring the cohesion, elasticity, and regeneration of skin, bones, tendons, ligaments and skeletal muscles.”

Approximately 75% of our skin is composed of collagen.

For this reason, I’m in LOVE with WithinUS Trumarine collagen products. (I’m obsessed with the coconut creamer!)

I’ve noticed a significant change in the way my joints feel, my hair is growing rapidly, and my nails are so thick and strong.

I highly recommend this product to women all of the time!

Best of all, WithinUs Trumarine supports worthy causes throughout the year.

Gift the gift of wellness from Indigo 

Indigo is one of my absolute favorite places to visit and shop with the family. Below is a list of items I think make great “styling the inside” gifts!


Gravity Blanket  – “Gravity blankets seek to help the user achieve restorative sleep which increases well-being and decreases stress. Weighted blankets have been shown to help people fall asleep faster and sleep more deeply. They are engineered to be 7-12% of your body weight to relax the nervous system by simulating the feeling of being held or hugged. More specifically, Gravity uses the power of proprioceptive input (more commonly known as “deep touch pressure stimulation”), a well regarded therapeutic method that stimulates pressure points on the body linked to improved sleep, mood, and relaxation. Available in three different weights – 15lb, 20lb, and 25lb. 


Benefit Cosmetics ‘Gimme Some Sugar’ – This makeup set will “sweet” you off your feet! Look bright, bronzed & beautiful thanks to Benefit’s bestselling curling mascara, smoothing & mattifying pore primer, natural-looking matte bronzer, and liquid highlighter.

Give the gift of dining & entertainment at Bacio Rosso 

I had the pleasure of attending Canada’s first Gourmet Cabaret Cirque Bacio Rosso last week. I highly recommend this experience! Bacio Rosso is an intimate, fully immersive evening of Cirque, Comedy and cuisine. It was so fun and interactive. The food was delicious too.

Guests are seated in the heat of the action with jugglers, contortionists, trapeze artists, magicians, singers and clowns weaving together an unforgettable evening of magic, love and laughter. All combined with a delicious 4-course gourmet menu designed by local award winning chef Adam Pegg of La Quercia.


Performances until March 3rd. Gift this experience this holiday season and you’ll be sure to make someone smile!
