Gift Guide: For Your Lady-friend

We might be a little late on gift guides this year, but that's only because Hollie and I have been so busy putting out all the amazing new things that keep coming into the store ever day. Christmas hours have also started at the shop, and that means you have plenty of time to come down and get your holiday shopping done.

In case you haven't heard yet, these are our Christmas hours:

Monday: 11-6
Tuesday - Friday: 11-8
Saturday: 11-6
Sunday: 12-4
December 24th: 11-3

And now, without further ado, I present to you a gift guide for your lady-friend:

These Sweet Nothings necklaces from In God We Trust end up on our gift guides every year, and there's a really good reason for that: ladies love them.  We have lots of sweet and lovely sayings, but I always recommend you spice it up a bit with Sweet Tits or Wonderbuns; both inspired choices. ($49)

We have a few head bands left from Goodnight Day at the shop, and I guarantee  you any lady-friend on your list will be happy to have one. Made of super soft alpaca, merino & silk blended wool, it's the perfect piece to keep her warm this seasons. ($65)

Does she consider herself a fashionable lady?  We have a great selection of recycled fur products from Heads Mistress ranging from headbands to hairpins and muffs to keep her hands warm. There's lots to choose from. ($22-229)

Looking for something really special, a little luxurious, but still utilitarian enough for everyday use?  We got a very small limited order of these handmade Forest Bound bags, and I think the Greylock Weekender would make for a pretty special gift. ($174)

For a smaller, but equally lovely bag, I always recommend the Keeper bags from Erin Templeton.  These bags are handmade in Vancouver from the softest leather imaginable. They feel like butter and come in beautiful shades perfect for this season.  It will be a super soft present under the tree.  ($55-70)

Finally, your lady friend has a cat, right? I'm sure she does. Show her you love her and her favourite furry friend by picking up one of these Loyal Luxe Cat Teepees. They are totally cat, and girlfriend approved. ($25)
