Winter is finally here!! Can you believe it?! I have to admit, I’m SO ready to start celebrating! Is it just me, or are you also excited to finally gather with friends and family this holiday season?
I curated The Winter 2022 Jilly Box with celebrations in mind, and I can’t wait to pamper myself, dress up in a sparkly outfit, and dance the night away, all while sippin’ a glass of bubbly (or two or three, who are we kidding?! LOL!). No matter what the holiday celebrations may look like for you, this box has just what you need to ring the New Year in style!
The Winter 2022 Jilly Box is undoubtedly one for the books! Valued at a whopping $649 CAD (our highest Jilly Box value in history!) and the first box to ever come with a piece of fine jewelry included in it, I can’t help to feel proud and thankful for Team Jilly Box for all of the hard work and love they put into making it all come to life!
Speaking of firsts, before I jump into all the items included in this box, this is also the first time we are reinvesting a portion of the sales from The Jilly Box into a couple of incredible LGBTQ2IAS+ organizations in Canada! Queer Collective is the first one of them and was introduced to us by the JVN Hair team! We’re proud to be reinvesting $12,500 CAD in this Ontario non-profit with a mission to create positive and accurate representation for the queer community by uplifting local artists! Wait, it doesn’t end there! We are also reinvesting $17,500 CAD in Qmunity, a BC-based organization that works tirelessly to improve the lives of queer, trans, and Two-Spirit people by providing counselling, training, employment and peer-facilitated support. We could not have done this without your help!

If you’d like to follow along with me as I unbox The Winter 2022 Jilly Box, grab a glass of champagne (or your desired beverage of choice!) and click the video below! Or, keep scrolling down to get all of the amazing details of The Winter 2022 Jilly Box filled to the brim with 8 incredible items!
Included in your Winter 2022 Jilly Box
Gold Foldover Clutch
This clutch was inspired by a bag I had a long time ago that was my go-to every time! That old bag had seen better days, so why not design my own?! I knew I wanted it to be roomy enough to fit everything I needed: lipstick, wallet, keys, phone, and toys for the kids! LOL! The result is this beautiful timeless and classy clutch made of premium gold metallic faux leather, with a top zipper and a gorgeous foldover design with a magnet closure! I already know that this bag will get better with time and will surely become a staple in your wardrobe!
Silver String Lights
I have ALWAYS wanted to include twinkle lights in a Jilly Box and we finally made it happen! I use these lights every season all around my house; I style them in my kitchen, my dining room table, on my mantle, everywhere! And one of the most incredible things about these is that they have a timer function! That’s right, you never have to worry again about sipping too much wine and forgetting to turn them off (I’ve been there! LOL)! These lights are 6 feet long (1.8 meters) and made of flexible thin copper wire with 27 super bright warm white LED lights!
The Sparkle Coupes
I have been shopping at The Cross for many years, so it feels like a dream come true to be able to include them in the Winter 2022 Jilly Box! This set of 2 Sparkle Coupes is nothing short of gorgeous! If you know me, you may know just how much I love a delicious cocktail in a pretty glass at any time of the year! Whether you are raising a glass with a crowd or toasting with your loved one on date night, these hand-blown glass coupes are perfect for any occasion!
Jillian’s Mini-Heart Diamond Ring in Yellow Gold or White Gold
This is the very first piece of fine jewelry ever to be included inside The Jilly Box and I am SO proud of it!! Jillian’s Mini-Heart Diamond Ring is beautiful and oh-so daint; perfect for everyday wear. Because it is solid gold, it will never discolour and you will have it for years and years to come! I had a blast co-designing the Mini-Heart Diamond Ring with Paris Jewellers; they are a Canadian-Vietnamese company owned by two sisters, Chau and Trang, who are so sweet and absolute powerhouses! Crafted in solid 10kt gold and featuring a genuine, ethically sourced round single diamond (Total Carat Weight .01 ct), this ring is perfect if you love stacking with other jewelry, wearing it as a single piece or styling it above your knuckle!
Complete Nourishing Shine Drops
A real GAME CHANGER in my haircare routine, and a must-have when I’m getting ready for a night on the town! This 50 ml bottle of silicone-free, vegan, and weightless hair oil instantly reduces frizz while hydrating, protecting against damage, and leaving a high-shine finish. Not to mention, I absolutely LOVE the colour, the refreshing scent, and that it is from an inclusive LGBTQ2IAs+ brand owned by hair stylist Jonathan Van Ness!
C E Peptides
The most accurate way to describe this product is by saying it is THE BEST! I have been using C E Peptides for nearly 20 years now and I can assure you, it is PHENOMENAL! This highly stable form of pharmaceutical-grade serum contains 10% Vitamin C, 2% Vitamin E and a combination of peptides to give your skin the soft glow it deserves! Not to mention, it is made right here in Canada! Just apply 2 to 3 drops on your face, neck, chest and back of hands as desired, once or twice daily. Your skin will thank you for it!
Pout Lipstick in Pink Champagne & Orchard Cherry
$72 CAD for the set of 2
When co-creating these two shades of creamy matte lipsticks, I wanted colours that could easily be worn every day or elevated for a glamorous look and I think we achieved just that! Available as a set of two, the Orchard Cherry is a real pop of colour, while the Pink Champagne is perfect if you prefer a lighter lip tone. These lipsticks are high-quality, non-toxic, paraben-free, cruelty-free, and contain squalane of vegetable origin that help keep your lips nourished ALL day long!
Invigorating Mint Body Lotion
Creating the perfect at-home spa experience is easy with this moisture-rich, non-greasy, 240 ml body lotion from the Canadian brand, bāsd Body Care! Made with a blend of organic moisturizers such as peppermint, aloe vera juice, and sunflower seed oil, this combination provides long-lasting hydration for soft and nourished skin. Not to mention, I love bāsd’s ‘no BS’ attitude to beauty with their organic, vegan, and cruelty-free line of products!

AKAITAPIIWA Crystal Ritual Candle
$38 CAD – Valued at $58 cad
I am OBSESSED with candles and this one won my heart over as soon as I laid eyes on the beautiful gemstones! I was so excited to create this custom-scented candle alongside the team at Crowfoot Collective, a female and Indigenous-owned brand! Designed to cleanse, clear and protect your energy, this hand-poured 10.5oz coconut and soy wax candle is a blend of White Birch, Hazelnut and Tonka Bean.

White Rustic Holiday Stars
$45 CAD for the set of 4
Every holiday, without fail, I am asked where my White Rustic Holiday Stars are from! We featured them in the very FIRST Winter Jilly Box and I was SO excited to bring them back for this season! I love styling them on my tree, a shelf, or on a mantel! They are handcrafted right here in the Okanagan and if you did not get one this time around, make sure to follow Crawford Creek Designs and purchase your set directly from them!
