Xmas ideas 2021

Can you believe that Christmas is right around the corner?

With Covid and store occupancy restrictions, you might want to get more of a jump on your Christmas shopping. We did some research to help make it a bit easier for you to shop for your  loved ones that aren't easy to buy for.  The holidays can be a very special time of year but also very expensive and stressful.  Trying to pick a meaningful or unique gift can try anyone's patience. We have included some stocking stuffers, smaller gifts and main gift ideas for you to have a peek at. Hope this helps!

Personalize your gifts for a special someone

Finding unique gifts are a challenge. Personalizing a gift makes it that much more meaningful. Guys are typically harder to buy for, so we thought we'd show a few fun ideas here. Of course ladies love personalized items as well, it seems there is an abundance of choice for the feminine side.

Personalized Dart boardThis fun personalized Dart board from the site "Its Thoughtful",  had tons of options in terms of themes such as a Lake House, Football, Cantina and Man Cave artwork styles.  Price $129. You can choose their first name or family name!

Personalized bottle opener

Personalized beer glassesThe personalized wall bottle opener on Etsy shows groomsman but you can just have a name, initials and a date. It's a fun idea to have on a wall.  Another cool idea is  personalized pint glasses . They are also on Etsy and are stylish for someone who enjoys their cold beverages.  Both are Canadian made.

When you can't getaway, how about giving the gift of a mental escape with this ZEN garden from Etsy ($31.59).  Comes with all you see.

Sometimes a long soak in your tub is the answer for an escape. Give a gift that keeps on giving with this live edge bath caddy that holds candles, a glass of your favourite beverage and nice book or tablet. This too is made right here in Canada! Price $150.
