Sabrina Maddeaux: Just like the rest of the year, this holiday season is all about me

1. North Star Famous Canadians Scarf, $40, NorthStarSportsWear.ca

Not quite sure who “Sebastien” or “Lorne” are, but I’d like to Google them someday. 

2. Helmut Lang x Shelter Serra Fake Roley, $40, HelmutLang.com

It doesn’t tell time, but it’s what the New York Times would call “ironic.”

3. Elizabeth Grant Moisturizng Socks, $29.99, ElizabethGrant.com

I deserve only the softest feet.

4. Absolut Unique, $26.45, LCBO

For the textbook Gen-Y in your life who refuses to identify as a Gen-Y.

5. Royal Ontario Museum Social Membership, $149/year, Rom.on.ca

You’re nobody until somebody Instagrams you drinking with a dinosaur. 

6. Donation to Rethink Breast Cancer, RethinkBreastCancer.com

Because, sometimes, it’s not all about me. 

7. Subscription to The Walrus, $29.75/one year, TheWalrus.ca

Every so often it’s nice to read something longer than 140 characters.

8. Corkcicle, $28.00, Drake General Store

Ice buckets? Wine sleeves? Too complicated. I want my whine chilled, and I want it now. 

9. Girls: The Complete First Season DVD, $39.98, Store.HBO.com

I think this show might be the voice of my generation. 

10. NARS X Andy Warhol Eyeshadow Palette, $55, NarsCosmetics.com

In the words of Andy, “I’m a deeply superficial person.”

11. La Senza ‘Hello Sugar’ Push Up Bra, $42.50, LaSenza.com

Sext away, bitches. 

12. Inniskillin Wine and SOMA Chocolate Pairing, varying prices, sold separately at LCBO and SomaChocolate.com

The closest this twentysomething will get to having it all. 

13. SPiN Toronto Gift Card, Toronto.Spingalactic.com

The best games aren’t on the App Store. 

14. Star Trek: The Original Art Series Print, $34.95, StarTrek.com

Haven’t you heard? Geeks are the new chic. 

15. Nadège Chocolate Alphabet Tablets, $9.00, Nadege-Patisserie.com 

Personalized just enough to make me feel special, but not enough to trigger my commitment issues.
