12 more days…

Can you believe it’s only 12 days to Christmas? I don’t know about you, but this holiday season really snuck up on me. So, I thought I’d give you a few last minute gift ideas just for you.

I’m always a little surprised and then delighted when customers buy presents for themselves. Do you do that? I’ve had customers tell me their significant others will hand over their credit card and say buy what you like. Woohoo!

It does take the element of surprise away, but there’s something to be said for getting what you truly want. And, for those of us on our own, what better way to show ourselves some love and self care. I’m a fan!

Take a peek and see if there’s something you’d like to wrap up and put under the tree with your name on it. You can even say it’s from Santa!

Lindsay Bambo Cardirobe

The Lindsay bamboo cardirobe is a versatile piece that will easily integrate into your current wardrobe. Throw it on over everything from your swimsuit to a pair of jeans to your little black dress.

Maxine Reversible Bamboo Tank

The Maxine bamboo reversible tank is a foundational piece for any capsule wardrobe. It comes in classic black and white so you can mix & match with colours already hanging in your closet. It has an easy fit with an inside liner and side slits.

If you’re heading south this winter, it’s the perfect travel companion. It’s soft, breathable, and 2 tops in 1. Wear the V or round neck in front. And, you can layer it under a sweater or jacket during cooler weather. For more info, here’s a previous blog post on the Black + White Maxine.

Joy Bamboo Pocket Pant

The Joy bamboo pocket pant has been a popular style this season. Why is that? Well…you, my customers, had input into the style, colours, and lengths. Plus, they’re ‘oh so comfy’ to wear. They have a nice wide waistband that doesn’t pinch or bind. They’re functional because they have pockets on each leg. Carry your phone, keys, cards, or whatever else you need handy. For me, it’s poop bags for dog walks. They’re your ‘go to’ pant when you don’t want to carry a purse.

Heidi Reversible Bamboo Swing Top

Here’s a fun addition to your everyday style, the Heidi bamboo swing top. As you know, I name my clothes after strong, inspiring, and courageous women in the COKANNA community and Heidi is no exception. To read about Heidi and her namesake swing top, go to: The woman behind the Heidi swing top.

What about some stocking stuffers? Stockings have always been a tradition in my family filled with smaller gifts from Santa, some chocolate, and a mandarin orange in the toe. We didn’t have a fireplace growing up so it was my job to carefully tie the stockings up to the back of a chair.

Bamboo Toque with Recycled Fur Pompom

This bamboo toque comes with a removable pompom recycled from pre-loved fur coats generously donated by women in the COKANNA Coffee Shop community. The best part, you get to pick your pompom. There’s raccoon, black mink, beige mink, muskrat, and grey rabbit.

Bamboo Mitts

Add a pair of matching bamboo mitts. I love these mitts because they’re not bulky and they keep your hands warm and cozy with a fleecy lining.

Bamboo Headband

And finally, here’s a raspberry bamboo headband. I find it great to keep my hair out of the way when washing up.
