Core Gift Guide

CORE Shopping Gift Guide #2

October 26, 2011

Last week CORE shopping announced they would be throwing one of the biggest holiday shopping events Calgary has ever seen. T’was the Night will feature festive food & drinks, a live performance by Chantal Kreviazuk and to top it all off, I’ve been asked to help you shop!

Each Wednesday I’ll be featuring 3 gift ideas from the CORE, trying to help you find those special items. And better yet, I’ll be at the event in case you need any last minute ideas.

Until that night, each week I will also be giving away tickets, gift cards or products right here!

This week I will be giving away 2 Paramount Beauty Bag exclusively from Holt Renfrew.

This limited edition kit, which hit the floor yesterday, is dripping in luxury and is going to make the perfect stocking stuffer!

The high gloss outer bag is the perfect for travel and the smaller inner bag makes the perfect clutch and the bags keep giving! On the inside of the hot pink bags there is a detachable mesh brush bag and a few fabulous mini products to try.

Not only does it include a $10 off certificate for your next cosmetic counter purchase, it is stocked with 3 little treasures. A foundation primer from Laura Mercier, a hydration lotion from Sisley and the best part, a mini eyelash curler by Shu Uemura. This bag’s value is well over $100 but it is available for $25 until it sells out. Enter below to WIN yours.

Switching channels, I next started thinking about my favorite granola cousin who lives in Vancouver. What would be the perfect gift for her? Would Jugo Juice let me buy a flat of wheat grass to send her? Because if it’s not earthy she’s not going to like it.

Enter the Joe Malone ( Holt Renfrew) perfect fragrance set. This 5 piece mini sampler set of some of the most popular of their line would be perfect. Each of the 9ml bottles are hand crafted from some of the best ingredients.

For example, ‘Rose’, has been blended from a selection of 9 different flowers making this more than just your average smell. The limited quantity set retails for $110. My nose was happy and I know my cousin will adore this gift!

Lastly I started thinking about the babes and not the Channing Tatum kind, that little bundle who might be having his or her first Christmas. I know we all want to get them something that gets kept for their memory box so that in 30 years we can be declared the
hero. So I though designer… Hermes.

Obviously way outta of my budget but who knows, maybe there is a rich relative that might be reading this… So if you have $175.00 to spend, how about these baby cashmere booties?

So cute but worth the remortgage on your home…?

If they only came in my size, maybe…
