Holiday Gift Guide from Staples Canada
I'll be the first to admit it: When I thought of Staples in the past, I thought of printer paper, pens, and spiral notebooks. I never dreamed I'd be able to knock so many people off my gift-giving list with one trip to Staples! I hope you'll be inspired by all the cool stuff I found!
For the kids:
Staples has so many things for the kids on your list! From stocking stuffers to gifts that give back, you are sure to find something here for the young people on your list.
1. Selfie Mic: This is a great gift for the kid in your life who loves to take centre stage! Featuring a selfie stick and working microphone, this device allows kids to use a smartphone to create their own music videos! Kids can use the included StarMaker app and 1,000 tokens to purchase their favourite tracks to sing or lip sync along to! Select filters and effects, record your video, and share it with family and friends!
2. Beanie Boo Lip Balm: If a young person in your life loves Beanie Boos, this is the perfect stocking stuffer! Available in several designs and scents (this one is Sugar Frosting!)
3. Pop Vinyl Figures: Available in several different styles, these are great gifts for the collector or pop culture lover on your list.
4. Shopkins Kinstructions Flower Stand Set: Made to work with other popular types of buldling blocks (read: Lego), this Shopkins Kinstructions set is unbearably adorable!! Includes 3 buildable figures.
5. Me to We Mittens: Warm winter wear is always a great gift idea, and therese particular mittens are even more special to give. Every pair you purchase helps to make a difference in a Free the Children community around the world. There's even a code on the tag that allows you to go online and see where your purchase is making a difference! The perfect way to teach kids about giving back.
6. Mr. Sketch Scented Markers (Holiday Scents): To me, no stocking is complete without a fresh pack of markers, and if those markers can be scented with the scents of the season, what could be better than that? This pack includes the following scents: Candy Cane, Santa's Cookie, Christmas Tree, Sugar Plum, Gingerbread, and Chimney. Perfect for the little artist in your life!
For the tech lover/gamer:
Staples has so many different options for the techie or gamer in your life, from computers to tablets, cameras to printers. I picked up two options to suggest to you:
The Utopia 360-degree Virtual Reality Headset works with most smartphones. Simply choose from hundreds of apps and get ready for true sensory immersion! Powered by your device. No need for batteries!
If you are buying someone a tablet this season (or know someone who one and would love accessories for it) Staples as a huge variety of accessories for your devices. This tablet case for the Galaxy Tab E serves as a both a sturdy case and a stand, offering comfortable viewing angles. Whatever tablet your recipient has, there's a very good chance you'll find the perfect accessory.
Teacher Gifts and Hostess Gifts
This Christmas, be sure to send in a little gift of thanks to your child's teacher for all the hard work they do all year. And with all of the holiday parties and visiting we do at this time of year, it's always good to have a few gifts on hand so you don't show up empty handed. Staples has a huge selection of items that fit this bill. Here are just a couple of suggestions:
This Warm Gingerbread Hand Soap and Lotion Set makes a lovely gift for the person in your life who deserves a little holiday pampering. It comes complete in this festive gold star-shaped holder, all ready for gift giving!
Staples also has a wide variety of gifts featuring edible treats and gift sets that make perfect hostess gifts, office Secret Santa gifts, or neighbour gifts. This set features a holiday mug, hot chocolate and cookies. The perfect way to help someone steal a few minutes of "me time" during this busy holiday season.
