Diana: My husband. He has been my biggest support since day one I started blogging. He takes most of my outfit photos and more importantly, has provided me all sorts of support I could ever ask for.

FANIQUE Magazine: What’s your best holiday gift pick?

Diana: The hubs’ wardrobe is quite streamlined but also lopsided with an overload of dress attire. I appreciate playfulness in fashion and like to gift unexpected things. This season, I’m sending him an off-duty shirt that’s perfectly casual chic with just a touch of good humor.

FANIQUE Magazine: What does A HOLIDAY GIFT mean to you?

Everett: I love to shop for friends first! It is where I can have fun and get not so serious gifts.

I leave the family until last, I like to leave myself time to make sure I get them a gift I am happy about.

FANIQUE Magazine: What’s your best holiday gift pick?

Everett: A lot of my friends lately have been questioning my skincare products and how I keep my skin clear, so this year I am gifting a few of my friends the Verso Skincare line. It has helped me unbelievably and now I won’t have keep lending all mine out!

FANIQUE Magazine: What does A HOLIDAY GIFT mean to you?

Yvette: A Holiday Gift to me means spreading joy and cheer to the ones I love, nothing means more than putting a smile on their face with a meaningful gift to say ‘Thank You’ . It is my favourite time of the year because it brings out the festive side to everyone including the City with decorative lights along the streets.

FANIQUE Magazine: Who is the first one you love to thank and gift this holiday, and why?

Yvette: The first one I love to thank and give this holiday season is my husband Edward, he is my everything and probably the most toughest yet easiest to shop for, if that makes any sense. Toughest in the sense that, he is a man of great taste and every year I try to top the previous year’s gift, and it gets trickier each time! And yet easiest, because in the end he appreciates and is thankful for anything I gift him.

FANIQUE Magazine: What’s your best holiday gift pick?

Yvette: My top two contenders for best gift for my husband would be either the Air Max 1 “The 6″ it is Nike’s homage to Torontonians, it is the perfect gift for not only the avid sneakerheads (which he happens to be come weekend when not in his suit & tie) but also meaningful since it represents his hometown and a loyal Jays and Raptors supporter – and what perfect timing to launch in time for the holidays! And my other idea is a classic timepiece with a beautiful mechanical movement. Of course there are the obvious high end brands but I’ll save that for a special milestone anniversary. There are also beautiful pieces at great value, like the Sawyer series from JORD watch. They come with the Citizen Miyota 9100 Automatic Mechanical movement and are beautifully crafted, hand finished wood watches. This unique piece would make the perfect addition to his exquisitely curated watch collection.
