It’s the most wonderful time of the year – gift-giving season! Even though we love shopping giving ourselves nice things all year, we reserve some extravagant finds (eg; shoes that cost more than our rent) for the special people in our lives to gift us *wink*

We already spend most of our time researching and finding the best brands, products, designers from all over Africa and beyond, and in the process, we’ve definitely accumulated quite a wish list.

Ahead our editors compiled the top treats they want to see under the tree this Christmas. From designer shoes to beautiful books and luxe beauty products, be inspired by our ultimate Christmas wishlist.

Be sure to let us know what you also want this Christmas in the comments section below

I’m ironically not fussy about getting gifts, but I love gifts with utility i.e. not stuff I’ll never use or don’t need. (yes, I’m definitely one of those people! I’ll let you know exactly what I want for my birthday/Xmas/Valentine’s day, if you’re so inclined. There’s absolutely no need for mysteries please

Prada Monolith Boots

These boots are super hot right now, but I can’t lie what I love most about them are the little pouches!  I can stuff my keys in and go walking around Toronto without the incessant paranoia about losing my keys lol. Also, I’m into military style boots in general so it’s a win win all round.

Chamomile. Rooibos. Matcha. Oolong. – you name it, I have it. So what better to compliment my moderate tea obsession?

I won’t even pretend to be modest – Christmas is my favorite holiday because I can shamelessly ask for extravagant gifts from my loved ones. Here are the two items I have on my wish list this year:

Timabee’s Silver Hind


This embossed bag and mule set from Timabee is the ultimate pair to win fashion at all the parties this season. I love functional but glamourous accessories and this brand is one of the few that knows just how to merge the two.

Guerlain Aqua Allegoria

I fell in love with Guerlain‘s Les Absolut d’Orient and Mon Guerlain scents this year and honestly, I have seen the light! Both fragances are pleasantly simple with a classic undertone and now I can’t wait to get something from the new Aqua Allegoria line.

Soles N Shades Slides

I sighted these really cute slides from Nigerian hand made shoes and sunglasses brand Soles and Shades and I ended up saving almost every picture on the brand’s Instagram page. The red buckle pair has me going back to their Instagram almost every day just to make sure it isn’t sold out yet. They will be the perfect companion through every season.
