Holiday Gift Guide For Everyone on Your List

We’ve all been there: it’s less than a week until Christmas Day and you haven’t even started to buy gifts for your friends, family and/or colleagues. You want to find presents specific to their hobbies and needs that are also within your budget, but you don’t have any idea where to start. Well, today’s your lucky day! Below is a list of affordable items that will make everyone on your list happy, whether they’re a techie, a beauty junkie or a foodie. Happy shopping!

Gift Cards

Restaurants, coffee shops, bookstores, clothing stores, electronics stores, drugstores and more will have gift cards for purchase, which is why they make a great gift for people who frequent those places. Alternatively, a prepaid Visa card or amazon.ca gift card will give the recipient the freedom to purchase whatever they like.

Beauty/Skincare Sets

You can find awesome $12 stocking stuffers (for both girls and guys) or $25 makeup kits at Sephora. If there isn’t one located near you, local drugstores or beauty supply stores will also have value sets for face, skin, nails, and body care.

Small Tech Accessories

This portable phone charger would make a very useful gift, as would these stylish earbuds, this iPhone charging dock and this portable Bluetooth speaker.

Eco-friendly Products and Clothing

Plastic water bottles and disposable coffee cups have terrible consequences on our environment, so why not give the gift of a reusable water bottle or travel mug? You can find them everywhere, from coffee shops to Wal-Mart to clothing stores like Urban Outfitters and H&M. Vegan or faux fur jackets are a fabulous choice for the environmentally-conscious fashionista in your life, and reusable grocery or shopping bags make fun, inexpensive gifts.

Chocolates, Wine, and Food Accessories

Godiva chocolates make for a classic and indulgent gift. Cheese boards, elegant serving plates, or a bottle of tasty local wine might make a host or hostess friend of yours very happy.

If you’re pressed for time, simply make a quick trip to your local mall for warm socks for your dad, affordable jewellery and accessories for your sister, DVDs or video games for your brother and an elegant scarf or pair of gloves for your mom. If you want to give a more meaningful gift, you could make a small donation in someone’s name to their favourite charity or foundation. You don’t need to blow your last paycheck on presents – more often than not, it’s the thought that counts. Happy Holidays, everyone!
