Team RAOP has really grown into quite the little family over these past few months, and the absolute best part of the holiday season is family! Our dynamic in the office is so special because we’re all so different, but fit together perfectly. As we were dreaming up our Holiday plans this fall, we decided to have each member of the team create a gift guide filled with their favourite must-haves. The guides ended up being the perfect representation of each member- totally unique and yet somehow all very RAOP. Check out our gift guides below, and shop our picks by clicking each item directly in the photo!
P.S. friends and boyfriends take note!
For me this time of year is all about keeping cozy and enjoying life’s little luxuries. A massive knit blanket, an ultra-fancy candle, or tiny sparkling jewels can make all the difference to my mood! Add a dash of swan lake and my Christmas is complete!
I normally prefer handmade gifts but this year I’ve found a few special treasures that bring everyday magic. Simple sparkly things that remind me of someone each day of the year, small opals, a cozy sweater, my morning coffee and my favourite smell – anything to infuse my daily routine with a little bit of extra magic!
The Holidays are the perfect time to round up my favourite velvets, blush-tones and sparkly things. I’m always thinking about the next excuse to wear something extra fancy before I go into candle-filled hibernation mode come January!
For me, the holidays are the perfect time to shop local, particularly when it comes to finding gifts for others. There’s just something so special about finding something so personal, and niche to that persons’ interests, which is why I always try to opt for independent retailers. For myself however, it’s all about fashion first aka stocking up on items I’m otherwise too poor to buy myself (hi mom).
