It’s the most wonderful time of the year! I ‘m sure I’m not alone on this one, but I LOVE absolutely everything about the holiday season. I love Christmas markets and the glow of the lights hanging off everyone’s houses. I love cozy nights around the Christmas tree and finding the perfect gifts for all those who make my life feel so full and happy. On that note, Sam and I have teamed up with MUJI Canada to bring you an extensive collection of “perfect gifts” for everyone on your list this year. This MUJI Holiday Gift Guide will not only amaze you but will save you so much time as you’ll see that MUJI is truly a one-stop-shop when it comes to unique gift ideas.
I will do my best to describe how amazing it is but you simply must step into a MUJI to truly understand the magic yourself.

Grab a coffee at the MUJI coffee bar and check out the carefully curated selection of books for adults AND kids!
Create personalized gift wrap for your loved ones or just let your kids get creative while you shop around.
All your gifts can be sealed in style at the embroidery station. Here’s where you can also have clothing items embroidered. Monogrammed bath robes? I’ll take two! 🙂
For the green thumb in your life. (Or the one who can’t keep plants alive and can only be trusted with something tiny and durable!) Some of these are in magnetic pots so they can hang out in all sorts of places.
Besides the atmosphere itself being beautiful and so so peaceful, I could spend HOURS in MUJI exploring the multitude of nooks and crannies filled with all sorts of interesting products (and gift ideas!). Oh wait- I DID spend hours in there and we took stock of some of our favourite products to share them with you in this series of gift guides- a guide for women, one for men and another for kids. You won’t believe the selection of unique products.
MUJI Holiday Gift Guide FOR WOMEN
I would argue that women are the easiest to shop for (but I’m sure others would argue this argument!). We love all sorts of things. At least I do! Anything that caters to wellness or beauty or fashion or… relaxation. Having said that, finding the exact items for all those fabulous women in our life can lead us on a bit of a wild goose chase. The first time I walked into the MUJI store on Robson St., I knew I was in the right place for finding anything and everything the fabulous ladies in my life could possibly want.
Yes, everything you see in that image (and MORE) is available at MUJI. I am embarrassed to admit that I had NO IDEA about the fashion, beauty, and decor items they carry. Their clothing is beautiful and so reasonably priced. You will definitely be pleasantly surprised too!
JESSICA’S TOP PICK
Samantha and I decided to each pick something that really stood out for us and, for me, it was the Labo Reversible Fur Jacket (faux fur). It’s so soft and cozy but can either be dressed up or dressed down, so it’s a great piece to add to your wardrobe. To see Samantha’s top pick, CLICK HERE.
MUJI Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser + Pure Essential Oils.
MUJI Acrylic Storage + Eyelash Curler + Compact Facial Masks.
MUJI Shoes + Sockettes.
Sam and I chose a variety of items for this guide for women, and you’ll notice that many items we have picked would work for men too! There are so many options at MUJI for any adult on your list- from bath robes to face masks to diffusers. These were just some of our top picks and we had a hard time narrowing this list down!
MUJI Holiday Gift Guide FOR HIM
A very common sentiment amongst my female friends is that men are way harder to shop for than women. Sometimes it feels like they have everything they need. That’s ok because Christmas then becomes more about treating them to something special that they would maybe not get for themselves. Even better!
We were overwhelmed with the amount of travel items available at MUJI. I am officially obsessed with their suitcases and the different organizational pieces that make traveling more efficient and organized. In my ideal world, I would have a full set of travel gear from MUJI and I think any of the men in our lives would be equally as impressed.
Organic Cotton Blend Bathrobe + Linen Twill Cushion Slippers. (Add a special monogram to the robe in-store!!)
Australian Down Hooded Blouson + Well-Fitted Neck Cushion + Adjustable Handle Hard Carry Suitcase.
Leather Touchscreen Gloves + Gusset Case + Cashmere Scarf + Wool Beanie Toque + personalized gift wrap.
MUJI Holiday Gift Guide FOR KIDS
Kids are so much fun to shop for and you can be super sneaky at MUJI by letting them hang out on the bean bags or getting them set up at the stamp centre while you shop FOR THEM. They’ll be having way too much fun to notice you adding all the cute kids clothing and accessories into your basket.
One of the things I love about MUJI is how gender-neutral everything is. I chose a really sweet girls outfit (makes sense as I have 2 girls) to include in my gift guide but also included a gender-neutral outfit. To see what Sam chose as her boys outfit, click here!
All pieces pictured can be found in the kids’ section at MUJI.
Fill a MUJI File Box with all their wonderful stationary items and your child will be entertained at the restaurant while waiting for dinner or on your next flight.
Cuckoo Clocks galore!
Something that neither Sam nor I knew about MUJI was that they also have certain specialists in-store to help guide you, should you need it. We worked closely with the MUJI Style Advisor when we were in and she was a knowledge of information.
We hope this gift guide has provided some inspiration and has gotten you in the mood for some holiday shopping. Why not pop into MUJI today and cross ‘gifts’ off your holiday to-do list ;).
On that note… what’s the number one item on YOUR wish list this year?
