It’s time for the Gift Guide for Women! This one was fun to put together, it was like putting together my ultimate wishlist! In this gift guide I’ll be listing many Canadian stores that I really enjoy shopping at or simply browsing, either in-store or online. Of course for this gift guide, I’ll have the links available for online shopping. Nothing beats shopping for deals from the comfort of your own home! I hope I have a great variety, that will help give you ideas for gifts! (Or maybe your own wish list?)
Candied Bath Bakery – Oh.my.gosh…I can practically smell their wonderful bath and body products through my computer screen!

Old Navy, Gap and Banana Republic – Okay, who doesn’t love these stores? And now that they are shipping within Canada, it makes it harder to resist! I love Old Navy’s plain shirts and tanks. I stock up when they’re on sale. The Gap is always good for baby gifts. Some of my favourite pants come from a Banana Republic outlet!
Chapters/Indigo – I love to wander around in our local Chapters store. I travel between the bargain books, gifts, magazines and of course, Starbucks occasionally!

Kitchen Stuff Plus – One of my biggest downfalls for purchases is things for my home. Gadgets for cooking, decorative items, linens, Kitchen Stuff Plus has it all! Each day on the website you’ll find a new deal of the day, an item that has been discounted deeply.
Tea Desire – I fell in love with a tea, Tea Desire’s Green Tea Ginko Biloba. It’s soooo yummy! Tea Desire has a fabulous selection of loose leaf tea, which in my opinion, is the way to go if you want a nice cup of tea!
