Welcome! I’m Karina, wife to Jamie, mother to five Little’s and a lover of all things beautiful.

This is my journal, filled with all things creative and beautiful; from my adventures with my kids to recipes & DIY’s.

Thank you for being here. 


Alright, Ladies, the last post was all about you, and I know most of you probably have your shopping started, but from experience, the Gents in our lives can be hard to buy for. Here’s a list to help you either get a jump on your shopping or to put on the finishing touches.

Gifts Under $30

These are great items to hide in stockings or use to as creative gift definers, rather than gift tags or even gifts to hide under the tree.

Our Primrose bottle opener is a popular gift either alone or as a complement to our Heritage Drink Caddy. For those with hairy fellas or the ones who want to keep their Movember stash, you can add this bottle of Shave Gel from beauty from bees into their Christmas this year. A gift for them… and you.

To store all their toiletries while on the road, instead of a ziplock bag you can gift them this travel kit that comes in multiple colours and shades. You could always use this sustainable gift wrapping and hid goodies inside the bag as well!

Gifts Under $75

If you’re looking for a one-stop gift idea, look no further. We have the Primrose Coffee Gift Set for $75 which includes the following: Primrose exclusive Phone stand, Watercolor Car, ’To Go’ Coffee mug, Primrose Exclusive Socks from Rutherford Sock Co. And Bag of beans from Good Trade Coffee Company.

Looking to get creative with a gift that keeps on giving past Christmas Day? Check out Cocktail Club for a Monthly Cocktail Subscription, the perfect date night at home, or for having the guys over.

And is it really Christmas without underwear? Saxx Underwear is always a hit, if you have a Prime account you can get it a 2-pack shipped right to your door!

Gifts Under $100

If you live in Canada you’ll know BBQ Season happens all year round no matter the weather, which is why we curated the BBQ Gift set, for under $100 this box includes: Our custom Drink Caddy in Rustic Oak, Watercolor Card, Black nail clipper, Steak Spice from Mesmerise Spices and Primrose Exclusive Socks from Rutherford Sock Co.


A fun gift, that can include the whole family and does not require batteries (we know kids’ toys use them up), is Spikeball from Amazon, you may need to wait for the snow to melt, or you could try it in the snow…just remember to bundle up!

Our display boards are another great gift, as they can be multi-functional from charcuterie to puzzles, or table centrepieces. These vary in price and stain depending on your own personal style and taste.

For a luxury item, and locally made that he can use daily, be sure to check out leather goods from Field Work Company, we love the Issa Wallet! And to match, we found the perfect weekender bag from Amazon!

For wish list items, We’ve talk about underwear, but what about socks? Friday Sock Co. Offers a subscription service so you can give the gift of socks all year long! Now you can admire them as you tell him to take his feet of his new Nash Coffee Table.


And a final gift suggestion would be for the man who has a to-do list as long as his arm and wants to do it himself, with DeWalt Brushless Impact Driver and Hammer Drill Combo Kit.

I’m sure no matter the gift he’ll appreciate spending time with you and his family this Christmas Season.
