Christmas is always a hectic time of year. The malls are crowded and people seem to be extra tense around the holidays too. Henrik naps twice a day and now that he’s also eating three meals a day it makes the trip to stores even more difficult. I made sure this year to start my shopping early, I’ve done 99% of it online too and most stores also gift wrap if you want to. Its super easy and really helpful I think to do shopping from home, and have it delivered. For me at least it means that I have more time to spend with my kids, to cook their favourite meals or do something for myself…haha that last part was a joke.
I’ve been meaning to put together a Holiday Gift Guide but Telus did it so much better than me so I’m sharing theirs instead! Especially because I found gifts for four out of the ten people on my shopping list this season through their curated guide. Telus made it really easy to shop too, for anyone doing a secret Santa with a dollar spend limit, they have gifts for under $50, under $100. Or you can shop based on interests, like the two hostess gifts I found for a couple of my friends.
Here are my favourite gifts from each category! and make sure to check out the Telus Holiday Gift Guide page for all the goodies.
Gifts Under $50: The iHome ISP6 SmartPlug which can turn ordinary tasks into easy ones. We have one for our Christmas tree and its amazing!
Gifts Under $100: The Fitbit Flex 2 is so awesome!
For the Tech Enthusiast: The Telus Drive is awesome and helpful especially if the recipient lives in an urban area with lots of traffic.
For the Kids: I love the Merge VR 360 Goggles! Virtual Reality is so cool!
For the Hostess: the Anova Precision Cooker Sous Vide is probably the IT gift this year. We have one and love it for getting that perfect restaurant quality result
And for the Health Conscious friend or family member: The Thermos Connected Hydration Bottle with Smart Lid is super awesome. It works with a smart phone app to tell you just how much water you’ve consumed! If anyone is reading this that needs to give me a gift this year, this should be it! I am notorious for not drinking enough H2O.
Happy Holiday Shopping Ahead!
