PANDORA winter collection | $20 to $140
For a Christmas gift that’s special, beautiful, and affordable, PANDORA really offers a lot for that special someone on your list. Their seasonal collections are always striking and beautifully simple, but their winter collection always stands out with jewellery options that your loved one will adore.
For 2017, PANDORA’s winter collection includes festive highlights like the Sparkling Snowflake Pendant, a range of charms, and three of my favorites: the Shooting Star Necklace ($110), Hearts of Winter Stud Earrings ($55), and Shooting Star Ring ($80).
Separately they’re all simple and elegant, or they make a stunning trio of gifts to give together this Christmas. You can also match the Hearts of Winter earrings with the matching Pendant and Chain, or match with Shooting Star Ring with another stand-out item, like the Classic Elegance Necklace.
PANDORA also has a collection of rose gold jewellery this winter.
The Ploom Pillow by Sleep Country | $100
Give the perfect gift of great sleep with my favorite pillow: the Ploom Pillow by Sleep Country. This gel memory foam pillow is great for all types of sleepers, it’s ventilated so it stays cool and comfortable, and it is seriously a dream to sleep on (sorry, pun intended).
For anyone who has standard, and frankly inferior pillows, this is a wonderful gift that can actually be life changing. I’ve slept better and easier on the Ploom since it arrived, and it supports your head wonderfully, but it’s also soft and light. On top of everything else, the outside of the pillow is organic cotton that you can remove for easy washing.
Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa | $69 to $269
There is nothing more relaxing than a massage, and with locations all over Ontario (and now Saskatoon too), Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa offers your loved one a chance to unwind, relax, and feel rejuvenated with massages, facial treatments, or waxing. The spas also offer member rates, so you can sign your loved one with monthly massages at a discounted rate, and membership is technically free–you just prepay for next month’s massage, which gives you a credit towards their services.
You can buy gift cards online, or visit a location to buy gift cards or sign up for a membership. All of their locations offer quiet, relaxing massage spaces, and some locations also offer couple massages. The staff at Hand & Stone Massage are also really wonderful and careful with their guests, working to make sure that they’re getting the most out of the experience.
