Merry Christmas! A quick post today to share what I bought for my family this year and why. Also will serve as a reminder to me not to buy the same things next year.
Keep reading for a breakdown of what I bought each of my family members for Christmas this year! I excluded my Dad from this list because I’m still not sure exactly when I will be able to give his gift to him. This year I tried to spend around $40 per person, however, some were a little less, and some a little more.
Whether or not the Bluetooth hat from The Source actually works like its supposed to doesn’t really matter when it comes to my step-dad. He is the kind of guy that only knows a little about technology but loves to play around with it. He loves his wireless headphones and Bluetooth speaker. So I thought this would be an exciting product to add to his collection.
I also bought him a Gillette Shaving Set, because what else are you supposed to buy for a grown man?
This year I decided to buy my mother a mini-essential oil diffuser because earlier this year she mentioned her friends having one and really enjoying it. But essential oils can be expensive, so I only bought her the two. I picked Rosemary because that’s one of my sister’s middle names, and lemongrass just because.
Sister A (19 Years Old):
This sister loves to travel. She already has a canvas print of a black and white world map in her room. However, I thought this one was cool because she could scratch off places she has been to before! Also, I thought this one was cool because it showed individual provinces in Canada and different states in the U.S.
Also, this sister loves to accessorize. I bought her a black beanie because black goes with everything. Hopefully, she doesn’t have one already.
Sister M (14 Years Old):
Honestly, this sister was one of the harder ones to shop for this year. I know she likes decorating her bedroom and having trendy decor like fairy lights. That’s why I decided to go for this lightbox that she can use to decorate her room.
I also decided to buy some iPhone cords with the last of her budget. iPhone cords are a constant fight in my house (that I don’t have to worry about) because everyone is using someone else’s and they get broken so easily. Hopefully, with different coloured, strong cords my sister will be winning future fights.
Sister T (14 Years Old):
A few months ago, I bought myself a tapestry with a picture of a forest on it for my bedroom. At this same time my sister was interested in buying her own, but for whatever reason, she changed her mind. Therefore for Christmas, I decided to buy her a geometrical one like she was looking at earlier in the year. Unfortunately, I miss-clicked and bought a grey/white one instead of a blue/white one to match her bedding. Hopefully, she still likes it.
I also bought her some string lights as I think she is the only one out of all of us to have never had string lights in her room. There she goes.
My boyfriend enjoys hunting. Do not ask me why. I don’t think I could ever do it. Anyway, I guess when you are hunting you are supposed to wear something bright orange so that other hunters do not mistake you for something worth shooting. Anyway, I just bought this beanie because it had a buck on it mostly. Hopefully, he likes it.
I also bought a Christmas ornament for him, “Our First Christmas 2017”. I think this was a gift more for myself than for him. If we ever move out together, I’ll probably get this hung up on our first tree.
Finally, I bought him the graphic novel called The Outside Circle by Patti LaBoucane-Benson. One day when we were hanging out before I had to go to work, we ended up at the library. For some reason, I remembered this book, and we found that our library had it. We were going to take it out that day to keep reading it but I forgot my library card at home, and they wouldn’t let him sign up for one without a bill or piece of mail to prove his address. We haven’t gone back there since and as far as I know he still has not read it. When he is done I hope he lets me read it!
That’s all for today. I hope you guys have a happy Christmas! Are you particularly proud of anything you bought for your family members? Let me know in the comments!
