Gift Guide Holidays 2017 !!

If you haven’t started your Christmas shopping yet, like me , you have a whole month left to find the perfect gifts.

This is the rare time of the year when I will not only talk about food. I compiled this gift guide based on things I own, have tried and recommend and also things that sound amazing to give to the people you like, for the holidays!

For the Cook

Himalayan salt plate ($49.95 – $59.95): The plate comes with a cookbook! You can use the salt plate on the grill or stovetop, in the oven, or as a chilled serving platter to make savory food. Whatever you are serving up, you will be sure to do so with enhanced flavor and flair. I am honestly planning on getting it. First experiment on my list ? Chocolate chip cookies! (of course)

Spiralizer 5-blade to make veggie Pasta ($23.87): Perfect for low carb meals! Veggie pasta have gone viral this year. If you know someone on a diet or with dietary restrictions, this gift will make them very happy. My mom is and I can tell from her experience that it is sometimes difficult to find attractive things to eat every day for every meal.

Cast iron garlic roaster ($16.95): Everybody loves garlic! This little thing allows you to roast garlic to perfection. I usually love roasting a few garlic gloves when I cook a good red meat. In addition to making your house smell wonderful, it looks like a cute little object to display in the kitchen!

William Sonoma customizable apron ($29.95-$39.95): I recently got this apron in red. Going to show you soon what it looks like 🙂

Flavor infusing grilling wraps ($9.99): These natural food wraps infuse your favorite veggies with a northwestern cedar flavor. (yum)

For the makeup and beauty addict:

Mini Clinique stick moisturizing lip colour balm ($49.50): I am obsessed with this line of lip sheer and vibrant balms. Knowing they are selling the collection set in for Christmas really made my day! Highly recommended.

Sephora favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip ($28.00): This is Sephora’s set of their favorite nude lip looks. Best way to make your friend try out new products and colors.

Sephora favorites Lashstash ($48.00): and guess what? It exists for mascaras too!!!! Something tells me you will buy one of them for yourself..

Urban Decay naked ultimate basics eyeshadow palette ($54.00): Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes never disappoint 😉 Other colors available.

TchaCha bestsellers set ($59.00): Tried and approved! This brand is amazing. This set is to purify, polish and nourish any type of skin. I really feel the difference since I started using their products. Inspired by the beauty secrets of geisha.

For the traveler:

Leather Camera strap ($31.00): I found this on Etsy and loved it. It makes a great gift for your photography enthusiast. You can also personalize one side of the strap for free and the other side for $5.

Longchamp XL travel bag ($160): The best travel buddy. Convenient and elegant. If you are going on vacation, it’s always nice to have a foldable bag in your luggage in case you do a lot of shopping and didn’t bring a carry-on!

Yeti Turquoise Water Bottle ($39.99): Well, it’s all about the color.

Benefit Makeup case and miniatures ($32.00): This makeup case caught my eyes at Sephora. A makeup case with makeup products in it always makes a better gift than a case alone 😉

OUAI to go kit: I discovered this line of product very recently. Their hair oil saved my hair when I was decided and ready to get an appointment to cut my long hair! Recommended!!

Slip Silk eye: Sleeping during a flight has never been this classy.

The Bucket List: Amazing travel pictures for the friend craving adventures but stuck at work.

For the techie:

One Step 2 Analog instant camera ($99.99): A polaroid has never been this cute!. (Have never been a big fan of the install mini 9 colored ones.)

HP smartphone photo printer ($129.95): Allows you to print anything from your camera roll and social media. You can also edit your pictures through your editing apps before printing them out! (HP smartphone photo printer 1 – 0 Polaroid). Small and fit into your purse.

 Bose sound link mini ($179.95): My everyday essential. I cannot go through my days without music. I wake up, turn the music on it, bring it to the shower, kitchen. I love the fact it’s easily portable, and the fact it’s Bose too! Quality guaranteed.

Sonix iPhone case ($35.00): Discovered this brand at Nordstrom! I bought 2 phone cases from them in one year. What I like about it is the fact it envelops perfectly every corner of the iPhone, that it is transparent and that the designs are fantastic. There is a design for every personality!

LuMee Duo lightening case black marble($70.00): I think it makes the perfect gift for teenagers but also for selfie addicts (and there is a lot of them!). This device makes sure the light is always perfect whenever it’s selfie time.

Gemstone marble keyboard ($14.00): For your gem addict who loves to personalize her devices. Maching computer sleek vinyl skin for $12 here!

Alexa echo dot ($49.99): Well, now we can say Alexa is a trusted product. I actually ordered the Echo dot for myself on cyber monday because I have been playing with those owned by others for too long..

 For the hostess:

Gem Cheese board ($78.00): I recently bought this cheese board in blue during one of their online sales and I LOVE IT. Another great gift idea for the gemstone lover.

Living room large basket ($89.95): Decorative and functional basket to stock throws and blankets!

Globe string lights ($27.97): For the friend or family member that just moved in a new place and needs to turn it in a cozy home.

Voluspa Japonica Embossed Votive Gift Set ($40.00): Voluspa is a very trendy candle brand from Southern California. They are distributed everywhere here. It’s hard to not buy one everyday. 

Dyptique mini candle collection ($150):Diptyque is a fabulous and well established French brand of candles and home fragrances. I have to admit I am a big fan of collection sets for gifts; When you really like a brand, it is either a very nice way to discover another line of products or a way to make someone try the products and know why you like it so much. I love Dyptique and I am confident this set of mini candle is THE gift for the fancy candle lover. Also, I recommend the Ambre scented candle ($34.00-64.00):

Homemade Gin kit ($50): For the friend that has a bartender soul.

For the fashionable lady:

Beret ($29): Very trendy this winter! During my weekend in NYC, the beret was in almost every stores!

Fringed wrap scarf ($48.00): Soft and cozy scarf makes the perfect holiday gift. I tried this one in store and was seduced.

Faux fur pompom beanie ($15.00): A cute pompom beanie never go out of style!

Leather Tote ($69.95): Cute leather tote for any working or shopping women in your life.

For the Yogi and spiritual lady:


A zen piece of jewelry from La Nomade Style: My aunt is handcrafting malas and selling them through her website. All her stones are real and amazingly beautiful! 

A Lulu yoga bra ($48.00): Because we exercise with more enthusiam when we wear good looking products like lululemon’s.

I Do Yoga Box Sign ($12): I found this just hilarious! 

Himalayan Salt lamp ($34): Himalayan salt is very trendy this year! This lamp gives a cozy relaxing atmosphere to any room it is in and it purifies the air!

Essential oil island bamboo diffuser ($35): This thing is definitely on my letter for Santa Claus!!!!!!

  2. I wouldn’t say no to any of these, but of course I gravitated right to the gem server and the cooking items. All things I’d love to have but probably would never actually get myself. Aren’t those the best kinds of gifts!
