NITK’s Blogger Gift Guide for 2021


Fa la la la la… it’s almost that magical time of year! I recently did a poll on Instagram and the majority of you were in favour of me sharing some gift guides for the holidays so here they are!

I had so much fun creating these gift guides and truly chose items that I personally have and love, or can’t wait to try! I also got my hubby Justin involved and he helped me a lot with the Gift Guide for Him — he has almost everything on that list and stands behind every item!

I chose to focus on ethical/sustainable brands as often as possible and dedicated a gift guide to local small businesses in my home town (Edmonton!) at the very end.

Also, many of these items are currently on Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales, so be sure to get on it quick while the incredible discounts last!

Without further adieu….
