Present Day Gifts offers curated gift boxes that are themed for all occasions. Their gift boxes come with unique, artisan items that are sure to please. Even better, they get shipped to their front door as a nice surprise. Who doesn’t love a pretty surprise parcel and the excitement of opening it up? 

Tip: If the boxes you see online are not quite what you are looking for, consider curating your own gift box with items you know your recipient will love. 

Holiday Gift Guide – Give a rose box that will last all year

You really can’t go wrong with flowers. Flowers are always great to receive as gifts, but what about flowers that will last for over a year? Blossom Box is a modern take on giving roses, but with their specially treated flowers that will last years. The box alone is such a beautiful gift.

Tip: There is a secret compartment in the box, so you can go above and beyond to include an extra special gift like their favourite lipstick, perfume or sweets.

What girl doesn’t love some sexy lingerie? Encourage her to have some fun in the bedroom with a gift from The Nookie Shop, Toronto’s newest sensuality shop. Create a custom gift that includes some lingerie and some new toys for a very special night in. They will package it in discreet gift wrap to ensure privacy.

Tip: If you aren’t sure about sizing for lingerie, focus your gift items as toys and accessories.

Holiday Gift Guide – Give a luxury mobile manicure

Holiday gift guide - Pampering at home with a mobile nail salon

Why go to a salon when the salon can come to you? The Nail and Champagne Bar offers mobile services that include manicures, pedicures (gel too!), makeup, champagne tastings and more. You can even gather a few girlfriends to get your nails done together. Give the gift of ultimate luxury with this mobile service.

Tip: Purchase a gift certificate for your girlfriend to use to glam up her nails or makeup over the holidays (or she can use it for her wedding events).

Whether the bride-to-be or bridesmaid in your life is looking to get pampered or not, any of these gifts will make for a great surprise. Happy shopping!!
