We know it can be tricky to guess the size of the lucky person you're shopping for, which is why we're here to help you find those size-fluid styles that will make your loved one smile! 

First up is one of our best selling jackets from Birds of North America, the Penguin. It comes in a variety of colours and is a nice over-sized shape with a flared sleeve and large patch pockets. It looks great, is easy to wear for the office, running errands, over dresses and even lounging around at home so basically they will never want to take this off!

Next option is a very special holiday dress! Capture that sense of joy of opening up the extra-exciting Christmas dress that they once had as a kid! We have just the right style to wear to the big family dinner or New Year's Eve party thanks to Noemiah's size flexible Cecilia Dress, Andrea Dress, Celine Dress and Celia Dress. These one-size dresses are fancy without feeling overdressed, and so comfortable that they can relax and feel at ease all night.

Odeyalo's Calem Dress is another guaranteed hit under the tree! The soft brushed cotton fabric is incredibly cozy, and the style is everyone's dream everyday dress - a long, warm sweater with unique seaming that's minimalist yet interesting. Ever since we got this dress in, it's been love at first sight for so many people! You'll make someone's year with this beautiful Montreal made piece. Now it's just a matter of choosing the black or the chartreuse!

More coziness to wrap someone you love in is Kania's J'Adore sweater. This one size fits all sweater coat is made from soft bamboo and has a feminine design that can be worn in a multitude of ways. Perfect for the practical lady in your life! Be it your mom, your aunt, or your daughter, they'll want to live in this Ottawa made and designed jacket!

Another jacket we love is Odeyalo's Bloom jacket. They make a classic, all season cotton version and a wintery warm 100% wool version. It's perfect for the office since it's dressy enough as a blazer, and is designed for real life with pockets and comfortable fabric that you can wear all day.

Loungewear is also always a luxurious gift to receive since rarely do we hard-working ladies take time to treat ourselves to something special for lounging in at home! A true decadence for the hard-working gal in your life would be the In Soft Focus Mini Robe. Made from a beautiful Tencel fabric that's breathable and temperature regulating (bonus!) this robe is ideal for #selfcaresundays / self care any day or evening of the week. Maybe get her a face mask as a stocking stuffer too ;)

Designer Fform also has some key pieces in this department, but instead of Tencel they make beautiful sweaters and dresses from Alpaca! Each piece is fair trade made in Peru from soft as a cloud alpaca knits. Alpaca is truly an environmentally friendly, as well as practical fabric since it does not need washing, is better for the environment than cashmere thanks to the how alpacas do very little damage to the environment on farms, and their wool is self cleaning so you don't need to wash it (seriously! Just air it out once in a while and spot clean!) So for the low maintenance, luxury-loving and wanting to keep cozy-at-all-times person, any piece by Fform will be a hit!

The last but definitely not the least is the Valerie Dumaine Niman Blazer. It's your all in one blazer/jacket/sweater coat that will be on everyone's list this year!
