unBOX the Possibilities

A sponsored post.

I’ve been writing a lot of Christmas Gift Guides for the blog these last couple weeks and I wanted to take a moment to focus on one particular Christmas gift that gives back. As much as I love candles, notebooks and all sorts of pretty gifts over the holidays, I truly love to give and receive something that makes a difference. We’ve actually stopped exchanging gifts with Paul’s immediate family and we all choose a charity that we ask for donations to instead.


If you’re thinking of doing the same thing with your friends and family this year, UNICEF is offering the opportunity to give a holiday gift that can change a child’s life. The UNICEF Survival Gift Guide is where you can purchase everyday luxuries for children in need. With your online purchase, the product is pulled warehouse in Copenhagen and sent directly to people in the field.

My friends at UNICEF recently sent me a survival box to share with you firsthand on what types of gifts you can choose to fund – see the video above! Here are some fantastic gift ideas from their catalogue:



Last Minute Christmas Gifts


Christmas is a’coming and if you’re scrambling for the final few gifts – get thee to a computer and start clicking. Cut-off dates for shipping in time for Christmas start this week! Last minute Christmas gifts + ideas:

For the Host or Hostess – The soy candles from P.F. Candle Co. cast such a warm and cozy light thanks to their signature amber coloured glass jars. My absolute favourite is Amber & Moss for a chilled out scent for an evening of sipping tea and reading magazines. A closer runner-up is Sweet Grapefruit for something a little more energizing when I’m hosting a dinner party or working away in the office. Each candle is hand-poured at their studio in Downtown LA and are $16 from Madewell or Urban Outfitters.


For the Cute Baby – Give the cutest baby you know this hand stamped hipster scarf/bib ($18) from Millipy. Each one is handmade in Los Angeles and fits children up to the age of 5. (more…)

DIY Terrarium Kit ($24) – Get her creative side going with a DIY Terrarium Kit from MakersKit. The box comes complete with a plant, supplies and instructions on everything she needs to create a cool terrarium for her home. I also love their Herb Garden Kit and Lip Balm MakersKit as well.


Carry-On Suitcase ($1150) – Ooooohhh I’ve been coveting one of these luxurious and sleek carry-on suitcases from Ebby Rane for a couple months now. Best part? They are a Canadian company that is just killing it right now with their well thought out design and specially-labeled packing pouches. Want. Want. Want.
