My Affordable Holiday Gift Ideas!

By: Alison Silveira

Earlier this week, I brought you my top picks for big ticket holiday gift ideas. This time, I would like to share some affordable holiday gift ideas with you.

One year for Christmas, my sister-in-law, Charlene gifted me with the holiday collection from David's Tea. Twelve exquisite teas were presented in a beautiful crimson box. I enjoyed all of the flavourful teas and shared them with my work colleagues to warm us up during our winter woes. David's Tea is offering new gift sets, including 'the best of 2016', which features 12 delectable teas, such as apple strudel, coconut cream pie and sweet almond green to name a few. Your friends and family deserve the best, so why not give the 'best of 2016' from David's Tea? This gift box retails for just $26.00.   

I am not a fan of using any synthetic fragrances, as I try not to consume products with many chemicals or strong scents. Saje Natural Wellness offers products that are plant based, vegan, contain no synthetics and are not tested on animals. I adore their Pocket Farmacy, and no, that is not a typo. A collection of five soothing and revitalizing essential roll-on oils come in a compact and convenient carrying case. My favourites include the peppermint halo headache remedy and the stress release tension reducing remedy. I roll the product on my temples, my neck and down to my shoulders and they smell and feel incredible. The Pocket Farmacy retails for $59.95. 

This gorgeous printed scarf from Scotch & Soda is detailed with fringes and dotted with stars. It has a soft finish and is stylish and versatile, as you can wear it to work or even to a trendy restaurant. It's playful, girlish and fun and retails for $65.00.

OGX's extra strength argan oil of Morocco shampoo is made with silk proteins and it provides the ultimate hydration for drab, dry locks. We know that excessive heat styling damages and dries out hair, but this shampoo leaves hair soft, strong and voluminous. Pair it with OGX's extra strength argan oil of Morocco conditioner and you have a one-two punch for luscious, luxurious locks! At $8.00 a bottle, it certainly won't break the bank!
