It’s that time of year again, and if you’re like the thousands of other Canadians out there, you’re scrambling to find last-minute holiday stocking stuffer ideas. Whether it’s for the kids, your friends, or the dogs — you still have to check off a couple of items from that holiday gift list. With time quickly ticking away and a busy schedule, you’re probably trying to figure out how to get everything in order before the big day.
Well, you can stop your panicking. We’ve got you covered. Check out these excellent last-minute holiday gift ideas for all the people (and pets) on your list.
Custom Printed Facial Masks
Life feels a lot different than it did this time last year. Unlike the carefree days of a pre-pandemic world where facial masks were confined to laboratories and science-fiction movies, masks are mandatory to enter most public spaces to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Did you know that you could create personalized branded facemasks in Canada for everyone on your holiday list? Now that they’re an everyday essential, why not customize facial masks to suit all of your loved ones’ individual aesthetics? People are bored of those plain, disposable masks. They’re nothing to look at, and you’re creating unnecessary waste by throwing them away. Spice up your loved ones’ masks by customizing them with something unique. For example, do your children love Harry Potter? Put their favourite graphics from the films on a few washable fabric masks!
Find the right Canadian screen-printing company that offers free estimates with orders. Do you work in an office? Consider approaching your marketing manager at work about ordering branded masks for the entire team as part of the holiday bonus. While you might not be together right now, but wearing company masks can help everyone feel unified as you work through these upcoming weeks at home.
A Gift Certificate for a Local Bookstore
If you have the capabilities, consider supporting local businesses during this challenging economic time. Do you have a few avid readers on that gift list? Give them gift certificates to local bookshops so they can choose exactly what they want. Many stores offer curbside delivery. If you’re concerned about going inside, your loved one could check what’s available on the bookstore’s website and then pick up their choice safely from the street.
A Subscription Box for Dogs
What better way to celebrate your pal’s pooch than with a monthly celebratory box of goodies? Search online for an affordable product that offers useful items each month. Look for companies such as Bark Box that deliver themed boxes of treats, toys, and doggie attire every month. They customize packages based on the season and the dog’s needs and preferences. For example, this month, the theme is based on the classic holiday film, Home Alone — it’s filled with toys that are sure to get your friend’s dogs into trouble!
