    Holiday Gift Guide

  • Globetechnology's Holiday Gift Guide
  • Nothing cures a case of the chills quite like cashmere. Actor Lauren Lee Smith curls up in a lilac cashmere knit robe that is so comfy you won't want to leave the house. Also available in ivory. $895 at Holt Renfrew stores across Canada.

    Put down the fly swatter. This is one insect you'll welcome into your life. The gold and ruby pin is a dreamy way to get in on the brooch trend. If your many hints go heeded, vow to wear it with a ripped T-shirt and jeans instead of with your Sunday best. $5,000 at Birks across Canada.

    A super-long, soft-to-the-cheek scarf is the must-have item for winter - and works wonders wound many times around the neck. $39.50 at Gap stores across Canada or call 1-800-GAPSTYLE. Matching hat, $24.50.

    This Barbie's not just for kids - she's a Mini Me for fashionistas. Burberry Barbie is clad in a classic Burberry trench, scarf and satchel against a black and white photograph of London. $125 at Holt Renfrew across Canada. You can order from Mattel at 1-800-491-7514 or

    Marc Jacob's bow-tied bottle is as tidy and pretty as his women's wear line, evoking that same sweet-yet-sexy sophomore chic. A soft floral inspired by floating gardenias, the perfume is $285 for 15 ml. Eau de parfum, $80 for 50 ml. At Holt Renfrew counters across Canada.

    Okay, so Michael Kors got us on the name. The newest addition to his fragrance line is called An Expensive Body Creme. The $125 cube contains a lightweight and slinky cream with a heady scent of tuberrose, freesia and Moroccan incense. At the Bay across Canada.

    Louis Vuitton's new Alma Haute comes in a new grandissimo knitting bag shape. Inside is a leather and gold key chain and, better, a slender pocket for your cellphone. Have bag will talk. $990. Available at Louis Vuitton boutiques across Canada, or place an order at

    Isabella Fiore's new line of makeup bags feature the same mixture of haute beadwork and trashy pop culture that she brought to her handbags. A cheeky addition to any gal's arsenal. $140 at Ice boutiques in Toronto (416-964-6751) and Vancouver (604-682-7467).
