2017 Christmas Gift Guide
Sometimes finding that perfect gift can be a real challenge. Whether your budget is $1 million or $10, you want your gift to be a reflection of good taste and thoughtfulness. I love to shop so people regularly ask me for gift suggestions. So I thought I would compile an annual list of wonderful gifts that are sure to bring a smile on Christmas morning.
$3500 - Cartier Tank Solo Watch
Classic and charming timepiece. This distinctive watch with opaline dial and oversized Roman numerals is sure to be the perfect gift for anyone in your life. This is suitable only for those on the Extra-Nice list! And don't forget to get it engraved!
$75 and up - DKNY Satin Sleepwear for her
What could be a better gift than sleeping in these luxurious satin pajamas? A wide range of colors, styles and sizes make these an awesome choice. Inspired by traditional men’s wear, the cute and comfy sleep sets are what dreams are made of.
$325 - Piccolo Watch Cufflinks in Rose Gold with Mother of Pearl
Eye-catching cufflinks that are both beautiful and functional. With a vintage inspired look and Japanese technology, these are sure to wow anyone. The rose gold finish makes these unique enough to become a year-round favourite.
$95 - Jo Loves Christmas Tree Candle
No one does signature scents as well as Jo Malone. Her new boutique, Jo Loves, has specialized fragrances to suit anyone’s palette. The Christmas Tree scented candle is sure to make the season bright. Makes a lovely host/hostess gift.
$75 - Hermes D’Orange Verte Cologne/Perfume
This unisex fragrance is a must-have for that person who can’t get enough citrus. Clear notes of orange, lemon, mandarin, mint and blackcurrant buds. Distinctive and fresh and addictive! Hermes rarely disappoints.
$295 and up - Bose Noise-Cancelling Headphone
There are a couple styles to choose from but regardless you can expect the incredible quality of Bose. These noise-cancelling headphones block out all the background sound to give you clear and pure music. On top of that, these are the perfect flight accessory to block out the noise of screaming children on that long-haul flight.
$300 and up - Fairmont Hotel’s Spa SheetsI spend a good portion of my year in different hotels when I’m on the road. And while there is nothing better than sleeping in my own bed, that's only because my bed has the Fairmont Spa sheets on them. These high-quality microfibre sheets are equivalent to 600 thread count but are wrinkle-free and machine washable. (PS-I also have the Fairmont mattress and it’s another incredible splurge!)
$1555 - Tumi Gatwick International Expandable Carry-On
I find myself replacing my checked luggage at least once a year, but when it comes to carry-on, I love investing in something timeless and durable. The Tumi Gatwick is the perfect combination. Since relaunching the Arrivé collection, this carry-on is one of the most stylish and timeless luggage pieces out there. Tumi also does free customization, so make it extra special by having their initials embossed on the tags.
$4010 - Givenchy Horizon Small Gradient Spray Satchel Bag
This bag is not only the perfect color for the season, but it’s modern and elegant design is certain to gather heaps of compliments. This may be your last chance to get a Riccardo Tisci designed bag since stepped down from the iconic fashion house earlier this year. He has recently collaborated with Rihanna and Beyonce.
$270-$340 - Tiffany Dog Collar
Even Fido needs deserves something under the tree. Tiffany & Co. launched a line of collars and leashes in November. Designed in Tiffany Blue or black Italian leather and palladium-plated hardware, your pet will look so fetch! And if you're in the USA, Tiffany's can emboss the inside of the color with the dog's name and address.
$7 - L’Occitane Peony Overnight Perfecting Mask
These individually packaged masks are the perfect stocking stuffers. I love the peony scent but I also love how hydrating these lightweight masks are. Great for dry winter skin.
$49 - Simon’s Blick Velvet Bow Ties
Any man would be thrilled to find any of these luxurious bow ties in their stocking Christmas morning. Available in red, blue and black—they are certain to add the right touch to his New Year’s eve outfit.
