Ready to make those lists? Here are some gifting ideas to get you started.
For the Wellness Enthusiast
The gift of health and wellness is one that keeps on giving and lets your loved ones know you care about their well-being. Whether they’re a wellness guru à la Gwyneth Paltrow or simply wanting to incorporate some wellness practices into their everyday lives, the gifting options are endless. From sleep masks to journals and workout recovery tools, these picks are sure to help anyone unwind and find their zen.
For the Tech Lover
Shopping for the gadget fan in your life can be tricky, especially if you don’t feel up to date on the latest and greatest in technology. Our advice? Keep it simple with stylish phone accessories, smart home devices, or trinkets the techie in your life didn’t know they needed, like a mini portable projector or a smart water bottle.
For the Kids (and Kids at Heart)
Children are arguably the most difficult individuals to shop for, especially with their ever-changing tastes and short attention spans. When shopping for kiddos, make sure to take their ages, interests, and goals into consideration. Have a nine-year-old who can’t stop fidgeting? Try a fidget toy or calming sensory toy to keep their hands busy. Is your six-year-old niece still trying to fill in the gaps from pandemic learning loss? A cool STEM set can help with at-home education. And if all else fails, opt for the crowd-pleasers like Lego, DIY craft sets and interactive games.
Stocking stuffers are the ultimate way to flex your creative muscle when it comes to gift giving. Though the items may be small in size, they can be mighty in thoughtfulness and usefulness and are sure to delight anyone and everyone on your list. Our top picks include mini skincare sets, dainty jewelry, stainless steel drinking straws and stylish desk accessories.
This year, consider supporting small businesses by shopping local. Check out our locally-owned retailers at Upper Canada Mall for some great holiday gifting picks like beauty services from Level Med Spa or tasty treats from Humble Roots Organic.
Give the Gift of Choice
If you’re still stumped for a gift, consider purchasing a gift card for your loved ones. Our physical gift cards are great for the traditionalist, while our e-gift cards give you the option to send a personalized video message to that special someone. You can even team up with family, friends, or coworkers for a joint e-gift card for holiday gifting!
Wishing you and your loved ones a happy and healthy holiday season!
