For those that are frantically looking for last-minute gifts, or just stuck in a rut in terms of gift ideas, I've compiled a small list of things I really like from Anthropologie which will hopefully be helpful!
Ever since they opened up an Anthro here in Vancouver, it's been a downhill battle for me to try and stay away. I can't really afford their clothing, but I find myself returning constantly for house & home items, accessories, & gifts. This...is going to be a long post.
✩ BEAUTY ✩
|I won't deny that my motivation for buying most of these products was based initially on cute packaging alone...|
|Coconut Milk Mango & Thai Lily @ $14 each|
Another perfume I picked up is from Royal Apothic's Conservatory collection:
While we're on the topic of Royal Apothic's products....
...all kinds of cute & soothing products for your lips! Their Balmie lip conditioner is $10, the Scrubbie lip scrub is $12, and the Tinties lip butter is $14. Honestly, the packaging is just to die for, isn't it?!
Hand cream! Everyone needs this stuff, let's be real. I'm ashamed to say it took me a very long time to realize that lotions frankly did nothing for my skin past an hour of application, and to just purchase creams instead. Lollia is one of my favourite brands- these mini tubes are so handy and I like having one in all my purses at all times. (As you can see, the sugared pastille one is my own, just for comparison.) These minis are $10.
If you refer back to the collective picture I posted in the beginning, I also bought a lotion from Illume in the scent 'Golden Amber.' I find it to be quite musky & warm- definitely for someone who likes more heavy, masculine scents. It was on sale for only $7.95!
✩ HOUSE & HOME ✩
I don't really have any pictures of Anthropologie's candles, so I'll just have to take them off the website, hehe. However, I thought I'd list a few of my favourites anyway! This may be a controversial statement, but I think Bath & Body Works' candles are slightly overrated *gasp*. I went in once they started stocking this year's holiday candles, and I honestly didn't like a single one...but this wasn't the case with Anthropologie's!!!! (and they come in such cute tins/jars~) Here are my favourites:
- Illume's Boulangerie Jar in Angel Food ($16)
- Illume's Spring's Eden Candle Tin in Coconut Milk Mango ($18)
- Illume's Tin Type Candle in Toasted Hazelnut ($18)
- Royal Apothic's Conservatory Collection Candle in Noble Carnation ($26)
Sadly, it's been discontinued now, but this Cherry Almond Cake soy candle from Illume literally used to make my mouth water- that's how amazing it smelled.
I mean, just look at this adorable sugar bowl/creamer set. I can't handle it!!!!
|I can't find this on the Canadian website, but they're $14 each!|
✩ BOOKS/PAPER GOODS
As for books.....here's something I fell in love with the minute I saw them in store- a collaboration between Rifle Paper Co. (as if I haven't gushed enough about them, haha) & Penguin Publishing.
*sighs dreamily* aren't they exquisite?! I've always been an avid collector of classic literature, and Penguin is constantly taunting me by releasing all these wonderfully designed book covers!! *____* These are about $18 CAD, I think? I've added them all to my wishlist.
If you're wanting to spend a bit more for someone special who's also a sweet tooth, the one and only Ladurée have two recipe books- Ladurée : The Sweet Recipes & Ladurée Chocolate.
That's all I'll get into for now- if you've gotten this far in to the post, thank you so much for reading! Best of luck with your gift shopping, and have a very merry Christmas! ♪ ♬ ヾ(´︶`♡)ﾉ ♬ ♪
