O.co Christmas Tree

Is your mind melting a bit this holiday season? I feel you. It’s a lot of work hunting down perfect gift ideas, and it can be overwhelming with so many shops to choose from. One solution? Find a fantastic retailer that has gift ideas for everyone on your list, do one big online order, and sit back, drink some eggnog, watch some holiday movies, and laugh at the people who choose to brave the malls this time of year. May I make a solution for which retailer to check out? O.co (aka Overstock) is an amazing hub for gift ideas for everyone from new little arrivals to ancient family members. And today, I’ve picked out seven of them to help you get a jump on your gift shopping!

Roberts Radio 1950s Pink Radio

Robert’s Radio 1950’s Style Pastel Pink Leather Finish Retro Radio – $321
Everything old can be made new again, as this retro-styled radio shows. While I’ve highlighted the pretty pink version above, it also comes in classic tones of red and black, as well as a fiercely rock and roll Union Jack model. Delivering exceptional sound in a beautiful package, this cool gift idea is indeed, just a radio – harkening back to a simpler time when you had music or talk shows on practically 24/7, whether hanging out at the beach with friends, making dinner in the kitchen, or relaxing at the end of a long day. Gift one to your daughter for a cool room accessory or to your granny, to recall her own youthful days.

Discovery Kids Zigzag Teepee

Discovery Kids Zigzag Teepee – $77
Even when it’s cold outside, the kids can still play like they’re in the great outdoors with one of these adorable play forts. Available in a few different patterns, these pint-sized tents are easy to set up and totally sturdy. They’re also five feet tall, meaning there’s plenty of space for little ones to stand up – and for mom and dad to crash their kids’ secret hideaway. It’s one of those imaginative gift ideas that kids will totally adore, even if they never thought to ask for it themselves.

Customized Tequila Shooter SEt

Customized Tequila Shooter Set – From $66
Changing gears from a kid-friendly item, this super cool shooter set is a great way to put a tailored spin on your present. You get to pick your initial, which is then emblazoned on a bamboo serving board with handle, as well as four tilted yet balanced shot glasses. The set also comes complete with a salt shaker. To round things off, be sure to gift your recipient with a bottle of the good stuff and a few limes for good measure. It’s a party-ready gift idea that’ll surely bring the festive spirit out of everyone.

Electronic Laser Tag Set

Smithsonian Two-Player Electronic Laser Tag Set – $32
I loved playing laser tag as a kid – but I never dreamed of being able to play it at home! This affordable, kid-friendly gift idea allows you to do just that! It’s oh so simple to use – simply strap on one of the two laser shooters to your hand and use the real infrared beams to try and knock out your opponent. Fun sound effects and vibration up the ante, making it feel like you’re prowling through a video game. Best of all, this gift idea will get kids off the couch and away from screens – two big considerations every gift-giver should think about this season when shopping for the younger generation.

Dogzzz Masters To Do List Bed

Dogzzzz To Do List Pet Bed – $60+
Instead of shopping for a loved one, try shopping for their loved one. Namely, their precious pooch. This adorable pet bed mimics a to do list for their ever-devoted owner, while naturally, your pet takes a rest. It’s a humorous yet practical gift idea – after all, even if your friend or family member’s dog already has a bed, chances are they’ll never so no to another place to rest their head (or the owner may be ready to get rid of a flea-ridden bed that’s seen better days). This cuddly bed is made from a lovely plush polyester fleece fabric too, which you’ll love as much as your pet. The cover can also come off and be tossed in the wash for easy maintenance, ensuring this bed will last for years to come.

Bubble Speaker

SoundLogic LED Bubble Speaker – $23.85
O.co has a (perhaps) shocking number of fabulous gift ideas under $50 for everyone in your family – truly. Normally I find tweens and teens tougher to shop for, but with a site that offers such a broad range of items, it’s actually a snap to find picks for those picky youths. Case in point? This sweet portable speaker, which comes in three cheerful hues. When you hook up your favourite music-playing device to it, the speaker lights up and emits a stream of bubbles for a fun, concert-like atmosphere no matter where your dance party may take you. Bust it out at your next sleepover and guaranteed, your tween daughter will be a hit!

Nostalgia Electrics Nut Butter Maker

Nostalgia Electrics Nut Butter Maker – $67
No doubt you’ve noticed a proliferation of natural nut butters on your grocery store shelves these days – and for good reason. Pure nut butter is loaded with way more health benefits and has a certain nutty je ne sais quoi that can be beat by their sugar-loaded comparisons. But instead of shelling out for store bought nut butter, I encourage you take a crack at making it at home for an even more delicious taste experience. Whether shopping for a PB aficionado or a health-conscious sibling or the gadget-loving in-laws, this cool nut butter maker turns any raw nut into creamy, tasty nut butter in a snap. You can also infuse your nut butters with unique flavours like cinnamon or honey, and the product comes with a container to keep your latest concoction fresh in the fridge for up to two months. Yum!

    More great ideas…love getting updates from Canadian Gift Guide! Too bad the nut butter machine isn’t included….with children that have a peanut allergy, there are very few almond butters that don’t have warnings about ‘containing peanuts’….so this machine would be great to make my own almond butter (or experiment with other nuts)
