I pride myself on being a super-organized person, yet somehow the holidays always leave me feeling a bit anxious wondering if I’ve got everything covered. Walking into a mall or large store can be overwhelming if you don’t plan first (we talked about this before, readers, you always need to plan, a list, a basic idea, before you head out the door to spend on gifts!)
This year, Staples has become my gifting BFF because not only is there store always super-organized and neat when I visit, they’ve also created an amazing Holiday Gift Guide at Staples.ca divided up in creative categories so you can click-click-shop with ease! Staples may not be the Staples you remember – the store is a gifting destination this holiday season for thoughtful, chic and unique gifts for everyone on your list!
I’ve been browsing Staples.ca and Staples in store and picked my favorites from each of the categories to share with you – should you need some easy solutions what to buy the following people this holiday season (don’t we all!) See? That’s why their holiday theme of “Gifts That Get Them” nails it!
For Him (the tech enthusiast!)
Samsung Galaxy Watch Active Smartwatch ($249.99) is a way to stay sporty, and in touch with your health and fitness goals, without looking the part. The watch displays daily activity goal, active calories, exercise time, and motivational messages all while presenting a sleek design. It also features a variety of stylish straps that are fit for most occasions. And, of course, it can sync up with your phone to get notifications at your wrist or stream your music wirelessly from your phone with the help of the Galaxy Watch Active app! My husband, in the past few years, has taken an interest in Spartan Races (wife brag: he qualified and participated in the OCR World’s in London, England in 2018) and Marathon running so this gift is an absolute win for me to pick up for him!
For Her (wellness focused!)
Gry Mattr Essential Oil Diffuser, Ceramic ($49.98) is a sophisticated way to add the ambiance of essential oils to your room or workspace. These diffusers cover a space of 200-400 square feet with automatic shut-off after 3-5 hours. Available in frosted white glass, soft-touch matte black coated ceramic and pleated concrete. It also doubles as a mood-light!
Check out all the other Gry Mtr products available at Staples Canada, perfect for the office or home – in my local store there was a gorgeous display right near the entrance making my shopping crazy-easy.
For The Teen (the gamer)
RAYNOR Gaming Chair, G-SMX59-BLK, with Outlast Cooling Technology ($299.98). If you have a teen that’s big into gaming, then a serious gaming chair is in order. These chairs are designed for gaming, and are not at all an office desk-chair even though they may look similar.
The Raynor Gamer Series chair is loaded with features designed for maximum comfort so you can stay cooler and play longer. Featuring patented Outlast material developed to keep you cool for hours on end. As the official gaming chair of eSports, Raynor know what it takes to bring your game to the next level!
For The Tween/Teen (wellness focused)
iHome Bedside Sleep Therapy Machine with Bluetooth Speaker and Sunrise Wakeup ($44.98) – Tweens and teens are notoriously known for not getting enough sleep, and for putting everyone around them on watch as a result of their bad mood! Tech in the bedroom adds to it, but this is a product that brings you technology for good and can actually help with sleep.
Innovative sleep therapy machine helps enhance the sleep process by creating a tranquil ambiance with soothing sounds and soft light colors (it offers 16 soothing, nature sound recordings and white noise to help unwind) Then, in the morning sunrise simulation mimics a natural sunrise wake experience. I love this idea not only for my tween, but for me as well! Check out this and other iHome products in store.
For The Tween/Teen (the pre-influencer/photog)
Wood/Fabric Letter Board ($15.98) -perfect for brief messages, this letter board set can be easily hung on a wall, or placed on a dresser in the bedroom, or carried as a photography prop!
General Supply Goods & Co. Mini Clothespin String Lights ($11.98) – I know these are going to get a huge reaction when my girls find them in their stockings this year. Not only do you achieve the Instagram-worthy look of photos hung on clothespins, the clothespins are actually mini lights! Plus, if you don’t want to use a hook on your walls, you can use the suction cups to hang it up.
For Kids (the music/video/gaming fan)
Tzumi 6759STC SoundMates BT 5.0 Earbuds, White ($29.98) – Yes the kids like my Apple Air Pods but no, I’m not gifting them a set for Christmas, considering how many times I’ve found guitar pics, pencil stubs, money and wired ear buds in my dryer after I washed and dried their clothes.
A much more cost-efficient yet still quality option is the tzumi SoundMates 5.0 Earbuds. Designed with a sleek minimalist in-ear build, they are rechargeable and come with a protective case which carries an extra 50mAh capacity of power, so you can instantly charge while out and about too!
I’ve got one more great gift idea to share, and this one would be for him, for her, for mom or dad, for the household. It’s truly something that everyone in the family can use, but offers some nostalgia for some of us (I’m not sure my kids would know what it is without me explaining!) Check it out below!
How beautiful is this Victrola Bluetooth Portable Suitcase Record Player, 3-speed Turntable ($69.98)? This chic Bluetooth, 3 speed suitcase turntable is perfect for the audiophile in your life. It has built in speakers and you can wirelessly play music, via Bluetooth, from up to 33ft. away! It’s also available in black, but I love love love the teal!
