3 Weeks 'Til Christmas

Some last minute gift ideas.

Still struggling with what to get for that hard-to-buy-for person on your list? Or perhaps you just realised you missed someone.... here are a few ideas that can suit just about anyone:
  • Page a day calendar to suit their hobby or interests (scrapbooking; sudoku; pets; quotes, etc)
  • Perfume or cologne - try a gift set from Shoppers or Lawtons
  • DVD of  the first season of a TV show they've lamented missing, or one that you think they'd like
  • Slippers - or try those new "Flats in a Flash" for the ladies
  • Recipe file plus a cookies in a jar recipe (you layer the dry ingredients in a large Mason jar along with ingredients and directions)
  • Chocolates - visit Coffee & Co downtown for a wide selection of Godiva!
  • Blank book for journaling or recipe collecting (if the latter, enter a favourite on page one) - Chapters has a wide selection
  • Framed art from your children - pick a piece and head off to Walmart for a simple black frame with a white mat.
  • Alarm clock that displays the time on the ceiling; or the one that jumps off the nightstand to make you chase it around the room and wake up!
  • Gift cards (Shoppers has a wide selection from various vendors)
    • music downloads/Sirius Radio for the techie
    • Tim Horten's or Starbucks coffee card for the java junkie
    • Winners for the fashionista
    • Pier One (or Winners) for the home decorator
    • Chapters for the bookworm or puzzle maniac
    • Shoppers Drug Mart for the guy/gal who has everything
