Christmas is fast approaching, and this year is going to be quite different from previous years. We may not be able to see our families in person or share in the usual social gatherings but that doesn’t mean we can’t show we care about each other. We want to help you skip the stress of holiday shopping and get you ahead on your holiday checklist. We have come with our top 5 choices for Holiday gifts from Baggins in 2020.

First off, we start with the Canadian winter essential- the toque- Offering options from the Canadian company Herschel and the California based, Vans. As most Canadian’s can attest, winter nights get cold and this year Vans heard the call and is offering a cute knit option for both men and women. These toques are perfect for everyday outdoor wear and our cold winters in Canada. Herschel is keeping it classic offering classic cable knit style makeup in both slouchy and classic fits. These hats are all fashion-forward but also serve the essential purpose of keeping your head and ears warm.


Second, we have the awesome new collections from Stance. Stance Socks are always at the forefront of pop culture collaborations. Featuring collaborations such as Star Wars, Pixar, and Music bands such as Metallica, Jimi Hendrix, and Willie Nelson. We’re here to introduce the new collaboration between Stance and one of the most iconic 90s sitcoms- Friends. Offering four styles, these socks each pull a memorable element from the show- the frame around the girl’s peephole on their apartment door, the central perk logo, the gang, and the show logo.


Want to stick to the holiday theme? Christmas classic comes alive on Stance socks in 2020 with Elf, Nation Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, and How the Grinch stole Christmas.

Third- Shoes for the great outdoors. Both Vans and Converse now recognize the need for fashionable yet practical shoes for those of us who must brave the seasons, whether that’s snow or heavy rain. The MTE collection from Vans this year pulls from previous collections for inspiration- featuring sleek black shoes with hits of bright color such as yellow. Others are more of a traditional boot but offer all the looks of a sneaker. The Vans Sk8-Hi MTE 2.0 DX Apricot/ Black has the hybrid look and feel of a sneaker but all the robust features of a boot. It also brings back the ever-popular colour combo often found in Northface jackets and collaborations.


From Converse you get the classic look of a Converse Chuck Taylor lined with fleece or fur and with an upgraded sole for the cold and wet to help prevent slips and falls. The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star All Terrain Hi Top Limestone Grey/Black/White is the newest addition to the weatherized line up from Converse for 2020.


Fourth- Dr. Martens. If you don’t have a pair of Dr. Martens in your closest from 10 years ago, you can bet you wish you still did. Whether you’re a first time Dr. Martens fan or revisiting the brand after taking a break- Dr. Martens truly is the brand for everyone. The classic leather boots and oxfords offer a classic silhouette and a sense of edge. In addition, Dr. Martens is now offering a budget-friendly collection that doesn’t skip the look or benefits of the Heritage line. The Dr. Martens Combs Leather Crazy Horse Hi Top Gaucho, The Dr. Martens Embury Leather Black Hi Top Chelsea Boot, and the Dr. Martens Combs Nylon Hi Top Black Extra Tough all off a killer combat boot for under $150 CAD.


Finally- Stocking stuffers- we have some many great small items to help fill those stockings on Christmas day. Whether it’s a pin set or lanyard from Vans, Converse, or Dr. Martens socks to match their new kicks, or a card holder or umbrella from Herschel. We have great options for anyone in your household.
