Family Gift Guide [Under $35]

Every year I find it relatively easy to come up with gift ideas for Little Dude, The Mr. and I, but year after year we are asked by friends and family what they could possibly buy for us that isn't a million dollars. So, I did what any blogger would do... I created this gift guide for my friends and family who are asking for ideas but especially for all of you, my readers, who are looking for ideas for those hard to buy for people in your life. Every single item in the post is under $35 (Canadian) and is something that we would love, and hopefully the people you are shopping for would too!

Here are 5 ideas for each of us, starting off with the Little Dude's list:

Before we jump right in, don't forget to pin/share this post with your friends and family to help them know what to buy this year as well!

And now, to this list...

Little Dude
Bunny Bedtime Board Game
Little Dude has the "Monkey Around" game for 2 year olds by this company and loves it, so this would be a great addition to his board game collection
Board Game for toddlers

VTech Go!Go! Smart Wheels Save the Day Fire Station
Little Dude has the police station and a race track that he received as gifts last year and they are still toys he goes back to time and time again

As most of you know, Little Dude loves monkeys (or "Eee Eee" as he calls them) and we travel quite a bit as a family... luggage is always a good idea in our books!

Little Dude sleeps with all four of his medium size JellyCat friends every night at home. He loves being surrounded by Bunny, Other Bunny, Eee Eee & Snuggles. Might as well add to Little Dude's squad.

I want to encourage Little Dude to be creative as much as possible but am not a huge fan of having my walls coloured or couches painted... this digital art easel looks like a perfect solution!

The Mr.
"Follow Me, Bring Beer" Flip Flops
Possibly the best vacation sandals ever... I think I could purchase these for a few people!

I bought this travel kit for my dad for his birthday last year and he has given it rave reviews. Plus, its stylish, so thats always fun!

As featured in "The Mr's Favorite Mops", so yes, technically he already has this mop, but has indicated it may be time for a new one. Do you have someone in your life that can wear out a mop?!

It's cold in Canada this time of year... no further explanation required, haha

The Mr wear colourful socks everyday as a result of being annoyed by trying to match up black socks a few years ago... his sock style (and the size of his sock drawer) has been off the charts ever since!

The Mrs
I have been eyeing this travel mug up for a while now, it would match my office perfectly!

I kind of can't believe I don't already own these!

This is my all time favourite lipstick (and my favourite colour, lovecraft, which is sadly being discontinued), it is high on my list this year!

I saw the black version of these and fell in love, then I saw the white and fell in love again! Which colour would you choose?

I had the privilege of hearing the incredibly inspiring Robin Esrock speak at a conference I attended not long ago and as an Atlantic Canadian who loves to explore my own region and my country as a whole I can't wait to get my hands on "The Great Canadian Bucket List" and the Atlantic version.

Have fun shopping all!
