holiday gift guide: for her

holiday gift guide: for her

happy holidays friends! can you believe in only 19 days it's Christmas? i can't! between having a baby, and building a new home, this year has really flown by for us. but i won't bore you with that! i love gift giving; there is something special about finding something thoughtful for the ones you love! 

here is my first of four gift guides for your loved ones! stuck on what to buy for the ladies in your life? let this guide help you along the way!

holiday gift guide: for her | dale + peonies

1. toque | 2. knit sweater | 3. personalized wall calendar |
4. loofa | 5. soap | 6. candle | 7. engraved necklace

1 \ gift the gift of warmth and style this holiday. this ribbed knit hat is sure to put a smile on any lady in your life! it's on my wish list this year ;)

2 \ how amazingly cozy does this knit sweater look from our friends over at shop the skinny? if you don't know, they are a local store here in Edmonton. they recently moved locations and opened their doors at Southgate's always great to shop local if you can! be sure to grab this soon, they sell out fast!

3 \ calendars that aren't personalized are just so passé ;) i kid; in all seriousness, this is such a wonderful personalized gift and is a great price point. i have been a regular at minted for years, and it's nice to see how much more they offer for the home now! there isn't a thing that I don't love from minted.

4 \ what woman doesn't love a loofa? i have to admit, i love all things from McGee & Co. (Designer shop from lovely Studio McGee) and this is no exception. we have this in our home and it exfoliates the skin like no other. i absolutely love this loofa, and it adds a little something extra to your bathroom decor. 

5 \ charcoal is all the rage this year when it comes to beauty + bath. i myself, haven't tried any charcoal products yet, but am wanting to! this soap bar from chapters would be a great gift and sampler. 

6 \ i always choose my candles on their scent, and this one is no exception - vanilla & maple syrup. i can already smell it just thinking of it! great for the winter/holiday season.   

7 \ this necklace from Stella & Dot is absolutely beautiful. it is simple and still makes a statement. i've had my eye on this for a while and if not gifted, i'll be ordering myself one. the best part is, you can have it engraved to personalize it. these are the gifts that mean the most (in my opinion!) 

well, there you have the first gift guide! we are keeping things minimal this year in our family and we are so happy about that; it's easy to forget the meaning behind christmas with the focus on gifts/sales and deals everywhere. even this gift guide :| (that's why i kept those prices down!) time spent together enjoying the holidays is where our hearts are and we hope that translates through to our children through the years <3. 

as always, thanks for reading. xox.
