Maison Margiela Replica Fragrances
These fragrances are meant to tap into your memory and transport you to a certain nostalgic destination. They are wickedly accurate and I think they make a great playful gift for anyone who might be difficult to shop for. Sephora is selling limited edition travel sets that include scents such as Jazz Club, At the Barber’s, and By the Fireplace.

Gucci Hologram Watch
I’m pretty obsessed about this and put it on my list to Santa. This Swiss made beauty is sure to be a conversation starter whenever you wear it. I love the classic lines with the futuristic style. I promise I’ve been good all year Mr. Claus.
Price - $1195 (Available at any fine jeweller)
Dillon’s Rose Gin
Everyone automatically thinks Champagne for the holidays (And that’s OK!) but why not break away from the pack. This elegant floral gin is delightful on the rocks or with your favourite tonic/soda. It is flavourful and unique and only produced in small batches. It even scored 95 Points from Wine Enthusiast. *Must be of legal drinking age to consume.
Price - $40
Must De Cartier Wallet
I ADORE beautiful wallets and this is one that will never go out of style. The soft leather wallet comes in burgundy, green and black and is embossed with the iconic double C’s. And for an extra special touch, have the inside personalized with his initials.

Louis Vuitton Capucines PM
Some LV bags are so in your face that I feel it distracts from the quality and craftsmanship. The Capucines is subtle, slick and feminine. I especially love the bubblegum colour but it is also available in black.
Price - $6250
NixPlay Wifi Digital Photo Frame
I know what you’re thinking. Digital Photo Frames are so 2011. BUT…this one is Wifi enabled so you could create some pretty awesome moments. Lets say you live in Edmonton, Canada but your parents live in London, England. You could create a shared online folder, upload pics into the folder and it would display on their frame in England. This way they would never miss your handsome mug, pics of your puppy or your nephew’s soccer game.

Bentley has strived to create the world’s most luxurious SUV - and they don’t disappoint. This ride can be totally customized to your own preferences - hand stitched interiors, duo-tone paints, etc, etc, etc. You can even have a Breitling clock installed on the dashboard with a mother-of-pearl face and with diamond inserts. Subtle. You have you choice of V8, diesel or hybrid makes - regardless, this is one fast ride with top speeds reaching over 300 km/hour. Only for those with a proven track record of being on the Nice list.
Price - $195,000+
Mac Lip Conditioner
Winter brings dry (at least where I live) weather and chapped lips happen. But even if you’re on the beach for the holidays, it’s important to take care of your lips. I was given a free tube of this to use (THANKS MAC!) and I found it moisturized well. Perfect stocking stuffer.

Nespresso Creatista Plus by Breville
I drink a lot of coffee. A. Lot. And I appreciate a well-made latte and Americano. I have never gone to a fancy barista academy, but I feel like it every time I make my cup with this gorgeous machine. Every cup comes out perfectly. The milk-frother is simple and quick. And with the endless coffee options offered through Nespresso, I don’t feel limited with my choices. This year I’m leaving Santa a 1% vanilla latte with extra foam beside his cookies.
