Holiday Gift Guide
Are you that person who totally gets stumped when it comes time for gift giving? Does the person you’re buying for have everything already, making it so hard to think of the perfect gift? Or, maybe you just don’t know them well enough. Well, I’m here to help. Here are a few gift ideas with different price points in mind.
Bows & Bowties
From local vendor, The Printed Bow, hand-crafted bows and bowties make for a great gift this holiday season. Evie wore the bow headbands as a baby and now that she has enough hair, she loves having pretty patterned bows to go with her outfits. Jameson just got his first bowtie, so I’m sure we’ll have plenty of opportunities for him to wear it this holiday season. $12.00 to $25.00
Give your little ones the latest innovative entertainment and education tech item. With so much technology already in our children’s lives, The Osmo Genius Starter Kit offers something unique. Instead of just staring at a screen, Osmo gets your kids to think, play and see their creations come to life!. That’s why it’s used in more than 30,000 classrooms. Starter Kit $99.00. Available at Amazon, Apple, Best Buy, Indigo or Mastermind Toys.
The holidays should really be about experiences and this game will leave you with lots of fun memories. I’ll never forget the time I was introduced to the game on CHCH Morning Live. Watching the video still makes me laugh. Great fun for everyone at $30.
Seriously THE BEST hair treatment on the market right now (in my opinion). Rescue Shots are a deep conditioning treatment that repair damage in just one use, with no weigh-down. My hair has been extremely dry and brittle so I’m thankful this treatment was able to give me soft, shiny, and more resilient, locks again. I thought that I’d just been to a salon to get a professional treatment done. These are great as stocking stuffers, or in a spa-inspired gift basket. Intense Rescue Shots $7.99.
The sleek design of this printer is simply gorgeous. It actually has different wraps that let you customize the look of your printer so that it blends in with any home decor. HP has more 250 printable activities. My daughter, Evie, loved colouring on some printed snowflakes to hang on the tree. The smart capabilities of this printer allow you to print, scan and copy from any device. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. $179.99
The best set of sheets that I’ve ever owned. They are soft, have a nice weight to them and they look beautiful. And they get softer with every wash – buttery soft. So when the receiver of your gift is curled up in bed on Sunday morning in their new organic cotton sheets, they’ll be thinking of you. Plus, they gift a portion of their proceeds to Sleeping Children Around the World. $149.00
The Canadian Ski Council (a not for profit) is selling SnowProud winter hats to help make skiing and snowboarding more accessible to all Canadians.Growing up in Canada, skiing and snowboarding was something we did as a family every year. As a gift idea, the proceeds of these toques go toward helping underprivileged Canadians experience snow sports in Canada. L$25
Personalized gifts are the best. This year I’m loving Pegs And Polkadots. These adorable hand painted pegs make great gifts for friends, family and for little ones. My daughter Evie was so excited to open up the individual bags to see which family member was next. Mine even go with our Christmas decor on the mantel.
Happy Holidays Everyone!
