Like most things in life, cold-weather accessories are just more fun to wear when they have cute sayings on them, like these ones from Old Navy.  Even better? They are all on sale for $7.00 each (use code SANTA until December 14th at midnight)!  Shown above are the “Women’s Message Scarves” in Neutral (which says “Happy”), and Black (which says “Love”), and the “Women’s Patterned Knit Gloves” in Black (which say “Chic” when held beside one another).  Fun, fashionable, and affordable, these make even a summer-lover like me want to join in the outdoor fun.

Today’s gift spreads love and joy to more than just a single friend or family member.  For every one of these fun storage pouches sold,  150 litres of clean water is provided to a person in a “Free the Children” community overseas.  And, if you’re curious as to where in the world you’ve changed someone’s life for the better, simply enter the code found on the tag at “TrackYourImpact.com”.  These storage pouches come in three different styles, (the one above is my personal favourite), and measure 6.5 X 9 inches, making them perfect for everything from pens and pencils to makeup.  You can purchase them in-store or online (limited styles available online) at Staples for $8.98 CDN.

Today’s gift is sold exclusively in-store at Shoppers Drug Mart, and the concept is both simple and brilliant.  Step 1: gift this Fragrance Sampler set ($75.00) to your friend or family member (there are both male and female versions). Step 2: they then choose their favourite of the 10 samples, and step 3: they redeem the included certificate for a full-size version!  For some, selecting a new fragrance can be a very personal endeavor, and this gift is perfect in that it gives the person choice, variety, and ultimately, a full-size bottle (plus all the handy samples for their purse or briefcase)!

Flower Beauty can now be found in Canada! Sold exclusively at Wal-Mart, Flower Beauty is Drew Barrymore‘s cosmetic line.  Drew’s philosophy is that department-store-quality beauty products should not cost you an arm and a leg, and Flower does this by forgoing any advertising costs.  All products are made in the USA, and are not tested on animals.  Today’s gift is their “Color in the Lines Mini Lip Chubby Beauty Set“, which comes with 3 of their most popular Lip Suede Velvet Lip Chubbies, and can be purchased at Wal-Mart in Canada for $9.00 (or $9.88 in the US).  These lip chubbies have great colour payoff, are self-sharpening, and will fit perfectly in a purse or clutch.  This set is a great way to introduce a friend (or yourself) to a cosmetic line that is sure to have great success in Canada.  They’re also the perfect stocking stuffer!

I’ve been a long-time fan of Foxy Originals, not only because they are a local, Canadian company (sold in many other countries as well), but also because their products are fun, affordable, and well-made (not to mention favourited by a ton of celebrities).  This adorable “Sparkle Everyday” Necklace is part of Foxy Originals’ RSVP Collection, available in silver or gold, and retails for $24.00 CDN on the Foxy Originals website.  With a 17.5 inch chain, and a 1″ charm, my favourite thing about this necklace is that both sides of the charm have a saying on them: “Sparkle Everyday” on one side. and “Think Happy Thoughts” on the other.  I purchased mine in gold and it arrived beautifully packaged, confetti and all!

I received these gorgeous rose gold earbuds in last month’s Spark Sessions swag bag: they are, by far, the chicest pair of earbuds I’ve ever owned.  But they aren’t just pretty to look at, they also have amazing sound quality, and are extremely affordable.  These retail for $29.99, and can be purchased from the happy plugs website, or online and in-store at Best Buy.  Compatible with a variety of devices and with a built in microphone and remote, not only can you change songs and and adjust the volume, you can also answer phone calls.  And can we talk about how adorable the packaging is? Add a bow and you’re ready to gift.

It’s no secret that, along with statement necklaces, I can’t say no to a fun graphic tee.  Old Navy has been selling some great ones as of late, (I posted one of my favourites here), and as part of their Black Friday sale, they are online for only $8.00!  The ones pictured above (left to right) are all part of this sale and read: 1. “if you are waiting for a sign this is it”, 2. “Everything has beauty”, 3. “being fabulous is the best come back”, and 4. “Happy is the new black”. If you’re looking for something a little more “festive”, check out some of their holiday-themed graphic tees here and here (ranging from $6.00-$9.00 during the sale).  What makes these tees a great gift, (aside from being super affordable), is that you can choose one that speaks to your friend or family member’s personality, making them even more meaningful.  And, while you’re at it, why not pair it with a cute statement necklace to help complete the outfit?

Life is full of ups and downs: some days we’re on Cloud Nine, and others, we’re working our way through a rough patch.  Today’s gift of the day, the Lokai Bracelet, symbolizes this by incorporating elements from Mother Nature’s highest point: Mount Everest, and lowest depth: the Dead Sea.  A single bead on the bracelet holds water from the infamous mountain, while another single bead contains mud from the Dead Sea.  Either bead can be found at opposite ends of the bracelet, representing the need, desire, and importance of finding balance in life.

You can purchase the Lokai Bracelet for $18.00 US on the Lokai website (shipping ranges from $5.00-$20.00 US, depending on your location and the number of bracelets you purchase).  The bracelet comes in 3 different sizes: small, medium, and large.  You can also choose to share a picture of your bracelet on Twitter or Instagram, using the hashtag “#livelokai”, for a chance to be featured in their online gallery.  Additionally, 10% of the net profits of each bracelet will be, “dedicated to giving back to the community through a variety of charitable alliances” (Mylokai.com).     What’s better than a holiday gift that keeps on giving?
