Holiday Gift Ideas for under $29

There are 32 days left until Christmas. 32 DAYS! When did this happen? It was only yesterday that we were painting the walls in here, and now we're in the midst of our second holiday season.  As fast as that came, so will C-Day, and we've got some great gift ideas for all the ladies on your list. Bonus? They're $29 or less.  The best part? We'll gift wrap it for free. Thank us when you see us. We like lattes. 

The Classy Lady

These gorgeous, locally-made creations from Headmistress Accessories are magical in every which way. Adorned with hand-dyed feathers and vintage buttons, this pin screams (or should I say whispers) Lady-like. $20

Crystals and pearls fall so elegantly on this necklace. Perfect for day with a pretty silk blouse, or with a cocktail dress for holiday celebrations.  $27.

Our assortment of leather gloves is sprinkled with different trims, colours and adornments.  Any lady who's a lady needs a pair of these. $29

The Girly Girl

The pretty sparkle in the center of these gorgeous little flowers adds femininity to any gal's accessory collection. Triple Flower Ring, $24

Girly-girls need warmth too. Frilly Scarf, $26

These charming pieces from Canadian-made Foxy Originals tie the knot on girly-ness. $20.

The Sporty Gal

Skiing and Snowboarding is way cooler with accessories. This pom pom hat will keep her warm and in style while she's zooming down those slopes. $24.

Layered in multiples, or just on their own, these adorable watches from Plasti-chic are water (and snow) resistant.  $25.

Sporty gals like their fingers covered when they want them covered. At other times, texting and unlocking bikes are best done with the flaps off. These perfectly practical gloves are just $22.

The Cutie Pattutie

Alright, so what about our little cuties? These adorable necklaces sit sweetly in their own velvety cupcake box for just $19.

And while you're in the mood for sweet treats, our Satin Sugar All Purpose Treatment Balm from Cake Beauty is a favourite during the winter months. This magical balm un-chaps everything from your lips to your hair to your heals to your elbows. $24.

Available in so many colours and patterns, these ear muffs serve the cute-and-cozy purpose. Just $22. 

Hopefully we've soothed some brain-wracking for you. If not, we're always happy to help with the toughest of accessory dilemmas. With tons of gifts and stocking stuffers for everyone from your sister, to your mama, to your Secret Santa you barely know, I Heart Accessories is here for you this Holiday Season. 

Also, we play great tunes. 
With Heart,

Birthday Week Love

Every year, I have a birthday week. There's a friend party, a boyfriend party, and a family party. And then of course there are dinners and coffee dates with friends here and there.  Before you know it, a week has gone by and I'm feelin' good about the extra year.  This year, my store stole my thunder in celebrating her first birthday, however, it was with extreme pleasure that I handed it over. The gal's been good to me.

We started off I Heart's birthday week with a fab 3-day sale of Buy 1 Get 1 50% off.  Hats and scarves were flying out of here like nobody's business, and with our already amazing prices, lovelies had the chance to stock up for prezzies and stocking stuffers.

Later on in the week, we had a date with Shop Socials for our 1st birthday party. Maggie, our most favourite personal baker from Lovin' from the Oven, supplied us with deliciously pink and white cupcakes (dusted with real gold flakes), and guests shopped with a whopping 25% off everything in the store and free gifties.

Above, two of our happy shoppers. The expressions on their faces says it all. Am I right?

A great time including good deals were had by all, especially me. The $5 martinis only had a *little* to do with it. 

Big hugs and kisses go out to Tamika from Shop Socials for throwing us such a great bash, and bringing her group of gals to celebrate with us. We also heart bloggers Laura from For Those about to Shop, and Natasa from The Stiletto Twins, for coming out and covering the event.  And of course, a big smooch to Baily and Graham from Snap North Toronto.  We can always count on them to snap some pics and let the world know we exist!

Those who attended: thank you for taking part in our first year and for all of your love and support.  I truly am so grateful for the people that walk through that door each and every day. We wouldn't have been able to make it here without you. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

With Heart,

Socialite Perks for Everyday Gals

Happy November Lovelies! Tis the season to get your shop on.  Ready for this? there are only 54 days left until the big day!  I KNOW!

This is going up tomorrow!

If you're reading this, you probably enjoy shopping. If you enjoy shopping, you most likely love when you find something fab for a fraction of the regular price. Regardless, I love having gorgeous items as much as I love to sell them, and what's not to love about paying less for more?  So, when I came across Shop Socials, I was instantly drawn to this brilliant concept combining all the things I love.  With just the right touch of fun, fashion, beauty, and discounts, founder of this amazing company, Tamika Auwai, organizes fabulous gatherings for women.  Tamika has made it a point to collaborate with independently owned Toronto boutiques, spotlighting hidden gems and designers that often go unseen. Also, martinis are usually involved.  Just sayin.

Showing off their goods below, some lovely socialites who attended our last event in May. 

Uppin' the anti of your discount socialite shopping is Shop Socials first born: The Socialite Card. Not necessary to attend events, but TOTALLY worth getting, this card grants you continuous discounts at boutiques in the Toronto area, private invites, free swag...ah...the list goes on.

Lastly, the newest service being offered by Shop Socials is their Girls Night In packages. With all of her amazing connections, Tamika brings a personalized boutique to your home (including I Heart Accessories goodies), providing you and your gal pals with the best in shopping in the comfort of your own home.  Have a few friends with little ones on the way? A pop-up including maternity wear is at your place in no time. Seriously...she's that amazing.
With our first Shop Socials event being a smashing success, we decided to ask them to help us out with our first birthday bash. If you're sentimental and wish to call us on the day, it's the 14th of November, however if you're like me, and just wanna come, enjoy a bevy and a cupcake (which will be generously made by our friends Lovin' From the Oven), Thursday the 18th is when it's all happening. Major discounts, free gifts and goodies galore are to be had, not to mention, shopping like a socialite at an invite only event.

So if shopping like a socialite is something you could get used to, I urge you to check out the Shop Socials website, and/or their facebook page for constant updates on new events.

If you've never been to I Heart Accessories, we'de love to see you at our birthday party, and trust us, you won't regret coming after shopping with 25% off everything in the store!

See ya then Sugar Plums.


With Heart,
