Have you already got your shopping done? I’m not going to brag but mine is all finished! Ok, fine – you just heard some bragging. This is the last post in my series of holiday gift guides, and this one features a little bit of everything for all the special people on your list. One note – I’ve included a mix of items, from shops in both Canada and the United States. That means some items may not make it in time for the big day without some express shipping. Or one thing that truly can work well – print out a photo of the item and wrap it up. I actually love receiving a gift a bit late – it makes it feel like the holidays aren’t over yet!

It seems most of us are more than a little bit addicted to our iphones, ipads, or ipod touches. So I’d describe this as a gift for the tech-lover but we probably all have tons of people on our list that would love a cool stand or dock from Woodwerx.

Woodwerx shop owner, David, lives not too far away from me – which is always fun! His creations are all made from reclaimed wood, including walnut, cedar, and maple.

I know my favourite dog loving friend would be pretty darn happy if I got her a personalized dog bowl for her cute little pooch! I love these ones from Luckypups:

Have some sweet newlyweds on your list? Guaranteed they’d love a beautiful personalized vase from Los Angeles based Maid of Clay Ceramics:

We’re going to cover every stage of life here – how about those new parents or grandparents who want to have some pictures of their little bundle of joy at the ready? Check out these mini brag books from Painted Fish Studio:

When in doubt – handmade bath products are always a fan favourite! Olive Bath and Body is also from right here in British Columbia and their product titles alone (Winter spice, Forest walk, Italian orange) have me craving some of their all natural soap!
