‘Tis Better to Give Than to Receive

I’m having a hard time thinking about what I want for Christmas. I’ve spend the past few weeks reading dozens of holiday press releases and compiling gift guides about the newest and greatest gifts to give this season, but I still can’t think of anything that I’m dying to get on December 25.

Call it gift overload if you will, but its probably because the things I want can’t be purchased at Yorkdale and wrapped up in a red and green papered box. I’d like to have some time to relax, read some books, watch some movies, eat some good food and just hang out with some of my favourite people in a place where the temperature will be in the double digits. And that’s exactly what I’m going to be getting this year and that’s good enough for me.

Here's to Christmas at the beach. Better than any other gift.

But still you’ll want to buy something for those special people in your life, and you might want them to buy you something too. I’ve found some lovely things to get and give which are featured here in Whatever Magazine, and small indulgences to add to the stockings on Christmas morning here on Hipurbangirls.com and here on styleninetofive.com

And if you really insist you have to get me something, then I guess I take an iPad 2 please and thank you. What? I can use it to read, watch movies, and look up recipes to make meals while I’m on my family vacation!

Tis the Season for Giving

As much as we complain about the stress and lack of time, shopping for presents around the Holidays really can be a pleasant experience. Seriously!

"Honey you got me a new ride? You shouldn't have!"


The stores are festive and inviting (ok minus the crowds and never ending lines), there are so many new and exclusive items to choose from and you go home carrying a parcel that is sure to put a smile on the face of the receiver.

Getting from the store to the present exchange part, however, can be rather intimidating for some (we can’t all be shopping pros!). You may be dealing with a receiver who has everything or a person whose only interests are obscure and hard to purchase for hobbies, or maybe you just really want to step your game up and find the ultimate gift for that special person.

Have no fear my gift giving-challenged friends! There are many wonderful Gift Guides out there to inspire the perfect present for anyone you love.

Particularly if you are in the market for something red or something gold to give this season, may I suggest you check out my themed gift guide in this month’s issue of Whatever Magazine.

In the words of Toronto rap sensation Drake, you can thank me later!
