Perfect for: Your stylish sister
What do you get the girl who has everything? Something beautiful and handmade that she can wear throughout the holiday season and long after of course! The Mignonne Handmade Rhinestone Floral Hair Piece looks pretty adorning a centre part and could be the perfect accessory for a sleek pulled back bun too.
You're likely to catch me sporting it at home in my fancy pjs - and everywhere all December long. You know, because it's so pretty.
Available at Brika by Pheonix-based artisan Jennifer Wood.

Perfect for: Your handsome husband/bearded boyfriend
Embracing a clean and decadently-scented man that smells of rich wood and warm spices is always a lovely experience. When his face is fragrant with MCMC's Dude No.1, staying away proves to be a study in willpower.
When you present him this gift of a unique and 100% natural scent for his studly face, he may just hold you close enough to get your fix.
MCMC Fragrances is based out of Brooklyn and created by Grasse Institute of Perfumery -educated Anne McClain.

With all the december parties, the purse/clutch/dress balance can be tricky. A clutch must be held or tucked under the arm, making balancing a drink, an hors d'oeuvre, and conversation quite difficult. On the other hand, a bulky purse needs to be stashed in the corner and makes it look like you didn't plan your outfit properly. Enter Erin Templeton. The streamlined and roughly elegant recycled leather Festival Pouch hangs off the shoulder or kicks back cross-body packing all your evening essentials.
It's also made in Canada: Perfect in so many ways. Come party with me, Erin Templeton.
