Gift Giving Solutions

December 11, 2017 | by

One of the most stressful parts of this time of year is finding gifts for all your loved ones. My general rule of thumb is to get people a great book that aligns with their interests. Who doesn’t love a good book?! Well it turns out that there are people in the world who aren’t really into books (…. I know). So I’ve come  up with a list of gift ideas for those folks!

Enamel pins are the coolest accessory around these days, and Peter Pauper has you covered with the best of them all:


Sloth Hard Enamel Pin
9781441325402| Peter Pauper Press
Price: $12.99

Sorry other pins, don’t even bother.

Help your friends and family become better correspondents with this book of excellent postcards!

9781492650225 | Sourcebooks | RAI

This next one seems tailor-made for Canadians, because man, do we ever love talking about weather (you should see the fog we’ve got going on over here on the west coast!).

And you may or may not be aware, but we’re about to start 2018, and people are always looking to get themselves organized, so why not help out with a most excellent planner!

Finally, because everyone has to jot down a thought or two:
