When was the last time you visited Staples? If you’re like many parents, I’ll bet the answer is August when you were feverishly shopping for back to school. Staples is known of course for being the back-to-school experts and they know their stuff! Every year Staples is my go-to for shopping for school supplies and I return a few times throughout the year for things like printer ink, paper, and a new agenda in January.
Staples Canada has been easing the stress around back-to-school for Canadians for a long time, and they know they can do the same thing during the holidays. They want Canadians to come see how they can help them approach the holidays differently with everything from big ticket and custom gift ideas for family to stocking stuffers and gift cards for teachers and bosses.
Staples Canada have searched the shelves, in consultation with consumers, to put together their very own 12 Days of Christmas featuring the top 12 gift ideas of the year to help Canadians gift differently all season long:
