Stocking Stuffers Under $40
My stocking rule is that I only like useful items and not dollar store junk so my favourite is the lottery tickets that Alex puts in everyone's stocking every year. You just never know… it’s fun to dream!
We are a team that’s always on the go and come 3pm we are always looking for a heathy snack to tide us over. Some of our favourite on the road treats come in this convenient gift box, which is perfect as a stocking stuffer for the designer on the go.

These wipes are the bomb! They take even the most stubborn salt stains off boots and shoes. I love them and buy a new pack every year for my suede and leather boots.

Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oils are little miracles for your lips; the formula is unlike any gloss you've put on your lips before... Scout's honour!

Everyone needs to practice safe sox - it is after all, the festive season. These fun and colourful stocking stuffers are a favourite of our Prime Minister, and me…so whatever your politics we've got you covered…well at least we've got your feet covered. All for a good cause CANFAR (the Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research).

Candles are one of my favourite gifts to give as they tend to be something that most people love but will not purchase for themselves. Whether it's for the holidays, a hostess gift or as a treat to yourself, Woodlot candles are some of my favs. The Cascadia scent is a blend of fir, cedarwood and patchouli and perfect for the winter months ahead!
Buy: $39, Woodlot
An Aritzia gift card is the gift that keeps on giving! The store is a fabulous place to find work clothes, holiday party attire and casual everyday wear. A one stop shop! You choose the amount and the card - copper, gold or black!
I buy a wacky pair of Paul Smith socks every year for my husband's stocking; he would never spend the money on these himself, but they looks so great every time he wears them!
Buy: $35, Harry Rosen
Any movie buffs out there? This inexpensive game looks like a lot of fun and would make a great stocking stuffer. Get the family together during the holidays and play a round!

Anyone who has tried L’Occitane hand cream will agree with me that it is the absolute best, especially for our long Canadian winters. One L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream is sold every three seconds, so you know it's really good!

I love to give (and receive) lovely scented candles, and this one in particular is a favourite of mine. You can burn it for hours without it overwhelming your space, and its soft scent lingers for hours. It’s also grey, so go figure I love it ;)
