DMC’s Holiday Gift Guide

It’s mid-December, and with that there’s no denying the holiday season is upon us! Our team might work months ahead, planning for Christmas in summer (Hot Holiday) or sending spring look books in the fall, but we think there’s no time like the present, for, well, PRESENTS!

With no further ado, here’s DMC’s guide to what we’d love to give and get!

• Coveting holiday snakeskin:
Hugo Boss’ Praila Ankle Bootie in Watersnake Leather from Ron White
Pointed toe, back zip, double buckle detailing and stunning snake leather - could there be a sexier boot? For all the working moms:

• A “take care of me” Package: 
This includes a new pair of Vionic Shoes sandals (I’m seeing the Selena leopard flip flops or the black raffia Cancun wedge) along with 2 packages of decadent DECO chocolate vitamins – dark chocolate for her and milk chocolate for her kids. There, now start off 2014 on the right foot (forgive the pun!)

• Fingers and toes crossed to get:
Alexander Wang's Sigrid Back-Zip Knee Boot from Avenue K
Calfskin leather, silver hardware and a geometric cut out heel…say no more. This boot is what (my) dreams are made of.

• For the hostess with the mostest:
Pluck Tea's locally-inspired loose leaf tea
Drawing on the personalities of landmark Toronto neighbourhoods like Kensington Market and Chinatown, these chic little tins are a great conversation starter and look even better lined up on the table for guests to sniff and share.

• London calling:
Burberry’s Buckingham Trench Coat from Avenue K
We’re headed into the dead of winter and I’m dreaming of a lightweight trench? Crazy, perhaps. Classic and iconic? Most definitely. If this doesn’t scream “staple wardrobe piece”, I’m not sure what does. Sigh.

• For the well dressed man in your life:
Ron White’s Logan Oxford
With NASA created Poron cushioning for the ultimate in comfort, supple calf leather with gorgeous detailing and handmade in Italy, what more could he ask for?

• This Painting Girl Needs A Freshen Up:
PARA Paints’ Ultra Line
With the New Year in sight, it’s time for a bit of a change at home. The way to get the biggest bang for your buck and make a statement is with a fresh coat of paint from PARA Paints!

• Giving You Your Natural Footprint Back:
Orthaheel’s Geneva Slipper
After a long month of holiday shopping and tired feet, treat the person on your holiday gift list to a pair of Orthaheel’s Geneva slippers. With a high arch and deep heel cup, the slippers will form to their feet for a fully comfortable step.
