Alright, Moms. Hold onto your furry pompoms because this Christmas Wish List was created just for YOU. And also, me.
Now, to be clear, I am as “anti-commercialism” as the next person — though I fail miserably at it every year. But doesn’t everyone deserve a little holiday cheer? And if that holiday cheer should come in the form of, say, jewelry, I see nothing wrong with that.
Of course, when the children ask you what you want for Christmas you will absolutely tell them one of three things:
- “Your hugs and kisses.”
- “A peaceful day.”
- “Not a thing. Just being with my family is enough.”
However, when your partner in life asks you, you will immediately forward them the link to this post. Because, hey, mamas, hey. There is nothing wrong with wanting a little somethin’ somethin’ for YOU, for no other reason than to celebrate YOU and all you do in the spirit of the season.

This is not about “need to haves”
- Starbucks Holiday Blend Keurig coffee pods (available in-store in Canada C$13.95)
If I need to explain my Starbucks addiction to you, then you’ve come to the wrong place. The holiday blend is a smooth medium roast perfect for popping into the Keurig on lazy, winter mornings or for serving guests who drop in. (Keurig not included — but if you have one, make sure it’s clean and ready to go for the holidays.)
- Rory Rib Hat and Mittens in Heather Grey (available in-store and online from Chapters Indigo C$19.50-C$24.50)
Look every bit the cool mom you are with this cozy and cute set. But you may have to fight me for these as I think they are selling out fast!
- Netflix Canada Subscription (subscribe to Netflix online C$13.99/mo)
You’ll be chillin’ like a villain to some of the best original programming and a bevy of classic favourites all twelve days of Christmas and beyond with a monthly subscription to Netflix. Get on it. And if you want to see what’s coming up in December, scroll down for the preview!
- Live Clean holiday edition hand soap (currently sold out online at Well.ca C$4.98 but may be available at local retailers)
Add a festive touch — and scent — to your powder room with a hint of holly berry or vanilla peppermint. Bonus: kids will want to be washing their hands constantly.
- Moët & Chandon Impérial (available in-store and online at LCBO C$145.75)
Our cups runneth over. There is no better time to pop open a bottle of bubbly (and it doesn’t have to be the super expensive variety) than Christmas morning. Just add orange juice and a few fresh cranberries for a festive morning mimosa. Or enjoy straight-up.
- iRobot Roomba 960 Vacuum Cleaning Robot (available online at amazon.ca C$799.99)
Curl up of with a mug of hot coffee and the latest good read while this bad boy cleans up the aftermath of Christmas morning. Better than any spa day.
- ItFit Freedom Leggings – Black Bandana (available online at itfit.ca C$109.00, currently on sale C$58.77)
You won’t mind working out over the holidays in these beautiful leggings, one of the newest additions to the ItFit line. Go check out their other fun patterns!
- Squish Reindeer Treats (available in-store and online at squishcandies.com/en-ca C$12.00)
Squish Candy is taking gummies to a whole new level of awesome. Now, I know I said this Christmas Wish List was for you, but these would make great stocking stuffers. Or buy a bunch to have on-hand as last-minute gifts (as moms do). Vegan varieties available (try the champagne gummy bears!)
- Uno de 50 Roots Earrings (available online at unode50.com/ca/ C$90)
I fell in love with the Uno de 50 line of jewelry nearly four years ago and I’m a wee bit obsessed. I think you will be, too. I’m pretty sure I need to add these earrings to my collection.
- New iPhone X (available online at apple.com/ca and at major retailers from C$1319.00)
If ever there was a time to believe in Santa Claus, that time is now. Admittedly a splurge, the new iPhone X is the bling every multi-tasking, working mom will covet this season.
While you’re penning your letter to Santa, check out what’s New in December on Netflix!
