Every year I plan to get an early start to my holiday shopping and every year I find myself in a scramble. Buying last minute for my own family isn’t too bad but it’s those out of town gifts that get hindered by the time crunch. Those gifts for the cousins and family friends. Thankfully I’ve found an easy solution.

Since I’m usually in a crunch when it comes to gift shopping, I like to buy gifts for family friends that can be used as a family versus buying individual gifts. Here are a few gift themes that might work:

Bose SoundTouch® 30 Series III Wireless Speaker – Your favourite jazz songs over dinner, sing-a-long songs during the kids’ bath or dance music for an impromptu family dance party. The Bose SoundTouch® 30 Series III wireless music system lets you and the family enjoy your favourite music anywhere you want.

Woolfell Leather Duffle – Life as a family can get pretty busy with school assignments, work presentations and extracurricular activities. Sometimes you just need to get away. Toss a few items in the Woolfell Duffle for an overnight staycation.

Case of a Dozen Maritime Lobster – Perhaps it’s my Maritime background but there’s something nice about a lobster boil. Have a shipment of a dozen lobster from Clearwater sent for a family cookout.
