40 days till Christmas – bet you haven’t realized that it’s so close! A little over a month to go, are you ready? Together with my working gent, we put together our favourite Christmas gifts for him & her to help you prepare for the Holiday season, no matter your budget! Ready? Set, GO!
Views for Change sweatshirts: Couples who match together, stay together :) There is no better gift than one that gives back! Views for Change (VFC) is a Montreal based street wear clothing company whose primary purpose is to raise awareness through fashion by partnering with charities & gifting the proceeds of sale to those charities. The clothes are made in USA & the sweatshirts featured in the picture above are great quality & very warm! Perfect for those cold winter days! Make change happen guys!!! More pictures from this collaboration to come very soon!
Moda:ko: The most stylish way to protect your Macbook or iPad! Moda:ko products are designed & made in Canada using premium materials. The cases are so original & it’s very hard to pick amongst all the fab designs! My favourites however are: Yves Macbook case (on sale!) & Poppy mini iPad case (on sale!) Both cases provide amazing protection for the devices & their stylish look can make them double as a clutch. Use code: Working Chix to get free shipping if you follow @shopmodako on IG!!! Kate Spade New York dots medium 17 month spiral agenda – Shopbop: Give someone a fresh new start with an agenda to help them with their New Years resolutions! Kate Spade just knows stationary like it’s nobody’s business. This agenda is both adorable & functional. It has a hard cover, inside pockets & the layout is just perfect. Complete the gift with an adorable pen like this Kate Spade New York dots ballpoint pen – Shopbop. Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca remix eyeshadow palette – Sephora: If in doubt, get makeup! You simply cannot go wrong with this rainbow of 24 bold, pigmented colours in a matt finish. It’s simply amazing! Every makeup lover’s dream palette! Color someone’s life for Christmas! Perfume: Fragrance can be tricky! If you know your loved one’s perfume brand, it’s as easy as 1,2,3 if they need a refill! However, if you don’t know the brand but you know what a person likes, you can figure out which fragrance to choose based on the notes found in ones perfume. For example, I like fruity notes, but not too sweet – so this Lacoste perfume is perfect!
Tom Ford Sunglasses: All that glare, and nothing to wear? Everyone needs a great pair of sunnies! I love classic black, square shape sunglasses like these Tom Ford ones! Stunning for chic or casual outfits; Italian made & provide amazing UV protection! PANDORA ‘Majestic Feathers’ Ring: Jewelry is a girl’s best friend! Give a girl a pair of wings to fly free like a bird with this stunning ring from Pandora! It’s glitzy & chic; perfect for that Christmas party or New Years Eve bash! Bring a little sparkle to a women’s eye ;) Garage pom pom beanie: Keep your sweetheart warm in this adorable pom pom beanie! Perfect for the ice cold winter heading our way!!! Pair the hat with a grey scarf from Bestsellers Vero Moda (also love this stripe blanket scarf from Dynamite) = match made in heaven! Winter never stood a chance! Garage snow proof parka: Why not a coat to go with that scarf & hat? ;) Warm, stylish & fabulous burgundy to bring your style into high gear! Obsessed with burgundy for Fall! A great addition to the Fashionista’s closet! 3.1 Phillip Lim pashli mini satchel -Shopbop: My favorite bag of all time! Stylish, practical & goes with absolutely everything, all the time! Make someone grin all year long with this amazing Phillip Lim cross body bag! Add pom pom keychains from Dynamite, and you have a brand new look!
Converse Chuck Taylor rain boots: I have too many shoes – said no women ever! Give her comfort, warmth, style & dry feet! :) That is surely the way to her heart. Read more about the shoes in the last post HERE. You simply cannot go wrong with these – other colors available! H&M classic white shirt (similar:Nordstrom Smartcare Wrinkle Free Solid Pinpoint Cotton Trim Fit Dress Shirt & Frank & Oak Andover Stretch Dress Shirt): Too boring and predictable? Not to the Working Gent in your life! Men who work in suits or in formal wear in general, live in these! It doesn’t have to be a white one if he already has 5 in his closet; experiment with colors & patterns – have fun with it, he’ll love it! Prada Tie (similar:Frank & Oak Knitted Silk Tie &The Tie Bar Woven Silk Tie – Nordstrom): No matter how many ties they have, Working Gents can’t get enough – once again, living in ties does that to a man! Pairing a different tie with a different shirt creates different looks – it’s that simple! Tie it up ladies! Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ‘Tekoa’ High Top Sneaker : The perfect balance of rugged and refined! They have a sturdy rubber sole that is sure to keep him steady on the ice & the fuzzy wool lining provides warmth! The winter must have! Bestsellers Bow Tie (similar: Calibrate ‘Madure’ Silk Bow Tie – Nordstrom): As bow ties become more an more popular for events such as Christmas, it’s the perfect accessory to give to your man! Similarly to ties, put a bow on it! ;)
Ray-Ban ‘Classic Wayfarer’Sunglasses: Men don’t like that glare either! A Ray Ban Wayfarer is a classic – you simply can’t go wrong! Movado ‘Museum’ Leather Strap Watch: Men are watch fanatics and a lot of them are collectors. This Movado watch is sleek, classy & upscale; brings an entire look together! Classic watches like these can last a man his entire life, and he will always remember you when he looks at it. It’s the perfect gift :) Zara wool coat (similar:Marc New York by Andrew Marc ‘Liberty’ 3-in-1 Field Jacket – Nordstrom): Warm & work appropriate – every Working Gent needs a coat like this! Looks amazing with a suit, just as much as with jeans! Perfect to glam up any look! H&M Balmain Beanie(similar:A. Kurtz ‘Knox’ Knit Cap – Nordstrom): If your Working Gent is anything like mine, he looses his hat (and scarf, and gloves…arrrgg) every year! So, offering him a new hat is always a good idea. A classic beanie to match his coat will do the trick! Holister printed socks (also cool: Frank & Oak Polka-Dot Cotton-Blend Socks in Burgundy): Printed socks have become more and more popular amongst men. When they sit down, their trousers lift up a bit and we can see a peak of the sock they are wearing. Nowadays, the bolder the print the better! Stock up!
Gift card: When all else fails, a gift card is always a great idea! Cadillac Fairview gift cards can be used at various malls such as Carrefour Laval, Fairview Pointe Claire & St-Bruno! It might be impersonal, but it does bring happiness, I guarantee it! ;)
