2020 Holiday Gift Guide for Her

What do you get for the woman who has everything? To help you choose the perfect present for your mom, wife, sister, bestie, girlfriend or any special lady on your list (including yourself), I’ve rounded-up some of the trendiest gifts and stocking stuffers of 2020.
Unbound Cordless Curler by Conair ($140.00)

Women spend a lot of time on their hair (I know I do), so any tool that can create glamorous waves in a few seconds is sure to be a hit. The Unbound Cordless Auto Curler is easy to use and styles hair effortlessly. It provides 60 mins of cord-free run time so you can touch-up your curls anywhere!
To use: simply press the on button and select the curl direction (right, left or a mixture of both), temperature and timer. Make sure to let the device heat up before placing a 1 inch section of hair into the front slot. Press start and the barrel will begin to rotate, sucking in the hair and winding it around the curling rod automatically. 

*The Unbound Cordless Curler is available at conaircanada.ca, Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart, London Drugs, Trade Secrets, Ulta Beauty, Bed Bath and Beyond and Amazon. 

Raincry Hair Thickening System 

Most women (and men) covet healthy, voluminous hair and Raincry’s Thickening System (for fine to normal hair) creates incredible body and bounce. The Volume Wash ($33.00) and Thickening Rinse / Plumping Conditioner ($36.00) are pH balanced, cruelty-free and do not contain parabens, phthalate, or sulphate.
The gentle, non-drying formulas are infused with collagen, omega fatty acids and evening primrose to plump each strand, increase elasticity, prevent breakage, cleanse, regenerate the scalp and reduce shedding for a thick, lustrous mane. 

I also recommend the Daily Densifying Leave-In Treatment ($38.00) for heat protection, root volume and hair growth. 

 *Raincry is available at Hudson’s Bay and online at raincry.com 

Estee Lauder Skincare 

Estee Lauder makes amazing skincare and their award winning Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex (30 ml - $95.00) is one of the best serums on the market (I always gift a few bottles to my family). This amazing treatment regenerates skin, promotes collagen renewal, firms, protects, hydrates and reduces common signs of aging. For an in-depth review of this product click HERE

I also recommend Estee Lauder’s Revitalizing Supreme + Night Intensive Restorative Cream ($115.00) to minimize wrinkles, firm, tighten, moisturize and replenish the skin with powerful plant extracts, antioxidants, vitamins and omega 3. It makes my complexion radiant and smooth.
The Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion ($130.00) strengthens and brightens to promote an angelic glow. It works by renewing, hydrating, resurfacing, re-balancing, and deeply nourishing to rejuvenate the face, neck and décolletage. Apply after cleansing and before serum and moisturizer for soft, youthful skin. 
*Estee Lauder is available at Shoppers Drug Mart, Sephora and department store counters including The Bay, Nordstrom and Saks. You can also order online at esteelauder.ca

 Valentino Voce Viva (50 ml - $123.00) 

Voce Viva is one of the best perfumes of 2020 and my favorite new scent! This addictive fragrance is feminine, romantic, sexy and elegant. The top notes are sparkling Italian bergamot softened by sweet juicy mandarin, opulent orange blossom and golden gardenia. The citrus and floral accords are perfectly balanced with cool crystal moss and creamy vanilla.
*Voce Viva is available at Shoppers Drug Mart and online at shopshoppersdrugmart.ca. Check out my 2020 fragrance gift guide for men and women by clicking HERE

Soraya Wave by Lelo ($330.00) 

I don’t usually feature adult toys on my blog but during COVID and mandatory lockdowns, we will all be spending more time at home. Studies show that self pleasure can relieve stress, ease anxiety, improve sleep and boost self-esteem...so why not. 

The Soraya Wave is described as “the world’s most luxurious rabbit massager, offering full-body pleasure.” 

The ergonomic design makes it easy to hold and the soft, high quality silicone is hygienic and easy to clean. It will not discolor or fade overtime and the device comes with a 1 year warranty.
The small extension is an external/clitoral stimulator with 8 different patterns and intensities. The larger tip can be inserted and used individually or at the same time for double the pleasure. It moves in a come-hither wave motion to arouse the g-spot, intensify your climax and promote sexual wellness. 

If you want to spice up your life, the Soraya is durable, powerful, well made and waterproof. There are 3 shades available - deep rose (the color featured here), midnight blue and black. The company ships discretely and the toy also comes with a USB charging cord and storage pouch. 

Fellas, if you are buying this for your partner, it is definitely a gift that keeps on giving...literally! 

*The Soraya can be purchased at lelo.com where you can also download the PDF manual. 

Ladybird Ceramics Tea Set

Tea is one of the most popular drinks in the world so this beautiful set from Ladybird Ceramics is the perfect gift for the special ladies in your life. Each piece is hand painted with an original design so they are all unique and spectacular! 

The company offers many intricate designs, patterns and colors but the black floral print is my favorite. The ceramic is well-crafted, high quality and stylish! I can’t wait to show these off at my next high tea party.
The cute tea pot ($58.00) holds up to 5 cups and looks elegant alongside the creamer ($22) and sugar pot ($22). When you’re stuck indoors on cold winter nights, a pretty tea set and a hot cup of your favorite herbal blend can make any evening cozy and special.
