The holidays are right around the corner and we know how stressful this time of year can be. With that in mind, our CEO, Joanna Goodman, has curated a roundup of her favourite gifts of the season to help you cross everyone off your shopping list!
For the Superwoman:
Celebrate the superwoman in your life with these thoughtful and stylish gifts that are sure to renew her spirit and provide some rest and relaxation.
Our Pure Silk Beauty Sleep Set is the perfect pampering kit. Silk is a saviour for skin and hair health, renowned for not rubbing, tugging or wrinkling and for helping to keep skin smooth and hair healthy.
Joanna is also obsessed with Arlotta's 100% Cashmere robe in a stunning camel hue, which, she says, flatters all skin tones. Add a faux fur eye mask in pale rose and your special superwoman will be able to Hygge all winter long.
For the Teacher:
Teachers are some of the most influential people in our children’s lives and being able to show your gratitude with a thoughtful holiday gift is important. Joanna has handpicked some of her favourite teacher gifts including stylish accessories like our 100% silk scrunchies (made in Canada!) that won’t rip or tug at their hair, and our fashionable and practical faux fur earmuffs and ice scrapers.
Joanna's favourite holiday scent this year is Apotheke's White Vetiver Candle, handcrafted in Brooklyn with a playful scent of vetiver, ginger root and sugarcane.Kismet's Dead Sea salt soak - the perfect way to say thank you to your child's favourite teacher.
For the Spa Lover:
With all the running around during the holidays, who doesn't need some spa time? Don’t let your loved ones put self-care on the back burner. The Kismet Salt Soak Trio was created with relaxation in mind. Made of 100% natural ingredients, each scent evokes a feeling of utter serenity.
No home spa is complete without our Cashmere-scented 3-Piece Bath Set, which includes a hand-poured candle, French-milled soap and a scented diffuser, all made exclusively for Au Lit in Haute-Provence, France.
For the Sleep and Snuggle Obsessed:
Hibernation season is upon us and if there's someone in your life that loves hitting the snooze button, Joanna's got you covered. Urban Muumuu's French Terry Hooded Sweatshirt is comfy enough for lounging around the house but stylish enough to run errands.
Why not think outside the box(store) this season and gift the sleepyhead in your life a fantastic pillow? Our best selling Summit feather pillow will transform the way your giftee sleeps. Pair that dreamy pillow with our soft and cozy flannel sheet bundle and your slumber-lover will be in heaven.
For the Fickle Teenage Girl:
Joanna has a 15-year-old daughter, so she's got the inside scoop on what's trending for this tough crowd. Here are Jessie's top picks for her Gen-Z contemporaries! Faux fur scrunchies are a must this season. They come in 3 fashionable colours and make a great stocking stuffer. They also pair perfectly with our Dreamer Satin Pillow Cases, designed to keep her hair in place while she sleeps. Cozy sleepwear is always a failsafe. Elevate her PJ game with PJ Salvage's Staycation PJ set or Bearly Awake flannel jammies. And if you're really stumped, add some flare to her room with our super trendy, handcrafted Tibetan Nude Fur Cushion.
Tired of choosing between BBQ equipment, tools and scarves? Well, we've got something for your guy's softer side, starting with an incredible set of super soft and cozy Charcoal Grey Flannel sheets. Gender-neutral and completely addictive, this set is number one on Joanna's list for him.
A thick, plush robe in dark grey micro-cotton is an everyday essential, and if you add a set of 100% Luxe cotton towels, you'll be bringing the spa home to him. Guys also appreciate great scents, which is why he'll love our bestselling Earl Grey diffusers and candles.
For the World Traveller:
When it comes to travelling, finding accessories that are compact, light and easy to pack is a necessity. Joanna is constantly travelling for work, so this roundup of travel gifts is at the top of her list.
The Au Lit deluxe travel set is the essential travel companion. It includes our 100% goose down travel pillow, which is ridiculously comfortable (for planes, trains and hotels), a down travel throw and a silky, light-blocking sleep mask. This deluxe set ensures a 5-star sleep wherever you lay your head. And don't forget to add a set of our feather-light Au Lit Classic PJ’s. Made with a blend of bamboo, cotton, jersey and spandex, these pyjamas can fit in any carry-on and will feel like home, no matter where you are. Finally, one of Joanna's favourite travel tips is a spritz of Kismet's relaxing pillow mist to help lull you to sleep.
