The Best Presents to Give and Get | 2017 Holiday Gift Guide

It’s December 1st! I’m sitting here at 8 am having just opened my two advent calendars; one of which is a NYX lipstick calendar, so now I have bright pink lips and I have yet to drink my morning coffee. Anyways, now that December is here (in true last minute Elise fashion), I wanted to share my holiday gift guide with you. I don’t know about you, but I find myself bombarded with “guides” at this time of year, so I wanted to do something a little different. Instead of scouring the internet for things that look cool and compiling them into a gigantic post based upon who you should give it to, I decided to keep it simple and personal. For this post, I went through everything that I had received this year and set aside the things that I would want to receive again. I also reached out to some of my favourite brands for holiday specific products they have available during the season. There is something for everyone in this post (men included). Each item is something that I have used and really, truly loved. There are 14 things here, each one amazing and I promise that this little guide is really all you need. Happy shopping my lovelies!


My Latest Obsession

Jacket: Vintage – Top: Pomelo – Denim: Vintage – Shoes: Kate Spade – Bag: Danier

Ever since attending Eco Fashion Week and learning how to thrift with Myriam (their founder), I have become quite obsessed with consignment shopping and going to Value Village in particular. As a huge store that used to overwhelm me, I now think of Value Village as this wonderful place where I can find special treasures, so long as I have a little bit of time and absolutely no hangover (don’t go there with a hangover).
