Unique Christmas Gift Ideas

December 6

Falala…Lala… Lala…La…La… Christmas is coming! Here are a few tips for some early Christmas shopping at some of my favourite places.

The Dog’s Ear T-Shirt & Embroidery Company offers the latest in embroidery technology, vinyl printing and transferring of photos on items of your choice. They have all kinds of apparel to work with: sweatshirts, golf shirts, t-shirts, and golf towels. They can do heat transfers on mugs, mousepads and more. What a great choice of personalized Christmas presents! They can also do customized lettering on hats, shirts, baby blankets, etc. I’m thinking of getting my new granddaughter’s name embroidered on her baby blanket. Just nice a way of making a sentimental personalized little keepsake.

Additionally, Dog’s Ear is affiliated with some of the leading manufacturers in the industry. Technosport is a major supplier of their Music and Rock Band Shirts. They are Awesome! Everything from the Beatles to AC/DC. Dog’s Ear also has suppliers like Jericho, Athletic Knit, Russell Athletic, Stormtech and Flexfit Caps and so you can also get your local sports team T-shirts and hats for that diehard fan in your life. “Go Canucks Go!!” (LOL) and “Roar you Lions Roar” for our B.C. Lions.

For your camera buffs, Kerrisdale Cameras is the best! They have everything from cameras, lens converters, flashes, battery packs, etc. Everything you could possibly need… And for the video enthusiasts, they have video cameras, microphones, wireless kits, and drones.

They also create photo greeting cards for every occasion. They have a large selection of themes to choose from OR you can create your own theme. That is so DIY… love it!

Another fantastic service they offer is to put your beautiful pictures on quality canvas. Give your loved ones unique memorabilia, whether it be wedding pics, baby pics, pet pics, or a special holiday picture. This appeals to the crafty side of me. I think that is a really original gift. I would love to get one (hint, hint!).

They also take trade-ins. Bring in your old gear and trade up to a new camera or buy that accessory you’ve been wanting. They take a great variety of camera equipment in for trade. They carefully inspect your items to ensure they’re in good working condition and review your trade with their head office evaluation experts to ensure fair and current values.

Your scent is the first thing that walks into the room, so it should be a good one! Perfume Club offers all the latest and greatest colognes and perfumes. Stop by to pick up their new show-stopping fragrance for that fancy lady in your life. There is so much to choose from! You can find amazing brands like Armani, Burberry, Calvin Klein, Givenchy, Kenneth Cole, Lacoste, Versace…and many others. They also carry men’s aftershave as well as cologne, and they have the cutest Travel size colognes and aftershaves, and mini-size colognes and aftershaves in a cigar shape. What great stocking stuffers! Perfume Club also carries some hard-to-find Vintage perfumes like the original Femme by Rochas (developed in 1944). I hadn’t seen that in years!

I hope this helps you check a few loved ones off that Chrismas shopping list of yours!

Happy, middle aged mom (60 is the new 40... right?) of 2 wonderful children (and extended family) still seeing life through my rose coloured glasses. And that is a choice that I have made... to always try and see the positive in people and situations... and to "pay it forward" whenever I can. It's brought me the most unexpected moments of joy and happiness in return. And my mantra is "you are only as old as you think!" So, as a result, I'm still enjoying my rock concerts, my hockey games and just keeping busy!
