This post is sponsored. As always all views and opinions are my own including the five unique gift ideas that were selected.

Are you looking for a Christmas gift (or any gift for that matter) that is going to stand out from the rest? Something that you likely have not gifted in the past and your receiver may not even know is out there? I have put together five unique gift ideas that I feel are different from you average candle or coffee mug (don’t get me wrong I still love those as gifts too!)

Let’s admit it some people are just h.a.r.d. to shop for. There are the super picky people you feel are always stone faced when opening gifts so you never really know if they liked it or you get the people that literally just buy themselves what they want when they want it. These gifts are for those people (and everyone else) because we all know a few and we all need a little help in those cases. These unique gift ideas are family focused and are a mix of something that would be good for Moms, Dads and the kids.

5 Unique Gift Ideas for the Picky Receiver

1. The Gift with Sentiment // About Dad book by Uncommon Goods:

This “What I Love About Dad” book is perfect as an under the tree or stocking stuffer gift from the kids. You get to sit down with them prier to gifting and fill in all the blanks that allows your kids to describe their dad. What a fun keepsake that isn’t too big to save for a lifetime.

2. The Gift of Quality Time // Plan a date night or vacation:

Gifts that include getting to spend quality time with your friend, family member or significant other are always my favorite. It could be as simple as a date night in with this microwave popcorn popper and a movie or you could book a night (or five) away for a much needed getaway.

3. The Gift that Keeps Giving // LillyPost Subscription Box: 

Over the last three months we have been getting Lillypost boxes shipped to our house for both of our kids. I have seen first hand the joy that it brings them to open up these personally wrapped boxes of books each month. This gift is really one that keeps on giving as you will receive the boxes just before Christmas and can subscribe for them to arrive for the next 3 months, 6 months or year. The price is so affordable for the quality of gifts that you receive.

We have a couponcode just for our readers to get 10% off. Coupon Code: CWANDJW | Use code at checkout

4. The Gift of Learning // Hand Lettering E-Course:

I love gifts that involve learning a knew skill. If you have a creative friend or partner that you think is interested in learning hand lettering this is the perfect idea for them. They will get to spend so much time diving into the online course and getting so much more then just a one time gift at Christmas. Colleen is a super talented designer and has recently launched her e-course that is already getting such incredible feedback.

5. The Gift that Never Expires // Perpetual Wall Calendar:

Calendars have always been a super popular gift idea, but they always expire. Let me introduce you to the perpetual wall calendar that is made to last forever. This is perfect for your design savvy friends who love modern and on trend gifts. It is under $50 and what’s not to love really?!

Enjoy your holiday shopping and remember not to go overboard (mostly writing that out for myself as a reminder). Give gifts that will be remembered and valued, I believe all of these unique gift ideas will add value to the receivers day. Hey, if you go for something on the list and the off chance they don’t like it you can blame me, I will take full credit, because let’s be honest, that’s not going to happen!

  • Excuse the language but...... We fucking did it!! Holy crap. 21.1 Kms you guys. We are pumped!

I had so so many thoughts and doubts going on in my head before and even during this run and I’m so glad I didn’t listen to them. This was a goal of mine (even though I should have trained more, only three 7 km runs leading up 🙊😳) that I now get to put a big check mark on. Heck yah!

James turned into some sort of wizard and passed the finish line at the 1 hour 50 minute mark and I made it over around 2 hours and 45 minutes. We did it babe!!!! #seawheeze #seawheeze2019 #halfmarathon #lululemon #vancouverisawesome

  • Happy Friday friends. Hoping you all get a chance to grab a drink and find a sweet spot to relax this weekend. I’ll be thinking of you as I complete a half marathon tomorrow 😅😅😅 As we head into the weekend I wanted to give a cheers to some ladies who inspire, encourage and motivate me in this space.

Motivated by @pyurvodkasoda (Power Your Own Unique Reality) they’ve asked who is my #PYURinspiration, so here we go. — @vancitybusinessbabes Danielle, Sydnee and Nancy are a powerhouse team who constantly are encouraging me and so many other ladies in business. I love how they have taken their passion and grown it across Canada and into the US with @businessbabesco — @ilikeherstylevancouver reaches out to me in their early days and have given me the opportunity to share a little piece of my heart continually in their issues as a contributor. Every issue I love how community focused they are, networking up a storm and creating such beautiful content for their community. — @jamprco is a local PR company that I’ve had the pleasure of working with many times and their love for local and community is empowering.

These are just a few bossbabes that inspire me with what they are doing within this local community and on Instagram. I want to challenge you to also share who inspires you, tag them (or a few people) below who are constantly inspiring and encouraging you in business and life. Let’s make some peoples days and share the ❤️❤️❤️
  • I literally LOVE every photo from this recent shoot with @juliechristinephotography so be prepared for more.⁠

Also, this photo was taken to show off the bling bling (one bling for each ring) on my finger. Both these pieces are made from Canadian diamonds and created at the Park Royal @lugarojewellers location.

I’ll share info in my stories tomorrow, let me know if you have any questions below. #ad #cwjwpartner #lugarojewellers
  • Do you ever have those moments in the midst of parenting and you stop for a second and think “this, this is a moment they are going to remember.” It’s usually in those everyday moments, ones we do over and over. The other night, while James was watering the garden and the girls were running around I had that feeling of, “this is their childhood, this is what they will remember.”
