All of us have those hard-to-buy-people in our life; it can be in-laws or distant friends or colleagues, sometimes family members that you don’t see often. Every year I struggle with what to buy family members that live afar, trying everything from virtual gift cards, to shipping large gift baskets.

This year, I have curated a few gift guides for a variety of different websites, and this one made up of gifts that I personally plan to gift, or even maybe hope to receive!

Apple Earbuds – Every single person on this planet is using earbuds in some way shape or form! And they are easy to lose or put through the laundry, so these Apple Earbuds priced at under $15, are perfect stocking stuffers for almost everyone on your list.

Marquee Signs from JunkArtGypsyz – There are so many options from Etsy Shop Junk Art Gypsyz! I particularly love the LOVE and PLAY signs that can be customized in the colours and fonts you prefer. Who doesn’t need a little more LOVE in their life?



Speaking of LOVE, the new Sweatshirts from Big Love Ball are sure to put a smile on anyone’s face. Available in Adult, Youth and Child sizes, Big Love Ball t-shirts and crewnecks range from $22 – $45. While you are on the website, you may want to gift a joyous and colourful Big Love Ball, sized from 1ft balls to 5ft, available in a variety of colours ranging from $15 – $89.

I love the custom watercolours from Fictive Artist on Etsy. You could get a custom watercolour fashion-style illustration from a photograph for $125 which is a perfect gift for someone who is difficult to buy for. Who wouldn’t want their own unique custom fashion art?!

There are a tonne of things ON SALE right now, including some summer tunics and scarves. Earn Dot Dollars towards your next purchase until 12/12/2017.

Goverre is my new favourite cutesy gift which I have been coveting since I first saw it on Shark Tank earlier this year. Goverre is a glass, portable, stemless wine glass with a silicone sleeve and drink-through lid. It comes in several delightful bright colours, inspired by travel and specifically Palm Springs (you must follow their Instagram-feed!). I can’t wait to gift some girlfriends these wine cups for a little drink with a lid.
