Gift Guide Day 4: A Very “Mary” Christmas

GG 2015-4

Today’s gift is a fun collaboration between Roots and Mary Maxim: the Mary Maxim Scarf Knit Kit.  Inside is everything you need to make your very own Roots infinity scarf (yarn, needles, pattern and instructions, as well as a cute cotton tote!).  What I love about this as a gift for someone, is that you’re giving them an experience, whether it’s learning something new, or doing something they already enjoy.  I also love that the outcome is a modern, trendy scarf, similar to those in Roots Cabin collection.  Pair it with a cute mug, some hot chocolate, and a scented candle, and you’re giving someone the perfect winter-night in.

One of this season’s hottest trends, the blanket scarf, is a fashion piece that works double-time.  Wear it around your neck for a comfy-cozy look, or open it up and use it as a blanket when you catch a case of the winter chills.  Many stores are creating their own signature patterns and colours, and some of my favourites can be found at American Eagle/Aerie.  Shown above (from left to right) are “Holiday Red”, “Buff” (I purchased this one), and “Royal Navy”.  These scarves are 100% acrylic, super-soft, and are extremely billowy and voluminous: they measure 59 X 59 inches!  You can purchase these online (however they sell out fast!), or in-store (I’ve seen them in quite a few) from American Eagle or Aerie on sale for around $25.00.  Pair one of these with a cute mug and some cozy socks, and you’ve got the perfect gift!

Flamingo and Floral Finds Under $20.00!

Flamingos and Flora

There’s something about flamingos that make me smile. Maybe it is that I associate them with sunshine and tropical destinations (or maybe it’s just because they’re pink…how cool!?). Either way, I can’t help but love the awesome clothing and accessories I’ve seen lately that pay tribute to such a fun (and chic) animal. Same goes for the floral trend that’s been around for some time now; who can resist an adorable bouquet of blooms around their neck? Not me. Here are some of my recent floral-and-flamingo-finds…did I mention they are all under $20.00?!

1. Flamingo Necklace from Aldo Accessories ($14.98 + buy one get one free)

2. Floral Crop Top from Marshalls ($12.99)

3. Flamingo Scarf from Banana Republic ($11.99 +20% off)

4. Floral Statement Necklace from Loft ($35.99 +50% off)
