Whether you have one person on your Christmas shopping list or 20, it can be hard to pick out just the right present.

Should you go the sentimental or utilitarian route? A sneaky tactic is to ask stealthy questions that can give you insight into what they want and need. Otherwise, give some thought to what this person’s interests and hobbies are.

People are complex and have a vast array of interests but usually one thing shines through as their main source of enjoyment. You can’t go wrong if you know what brings them the most joy. Do they love cooking or playing with the latest tech gadget? Perhaps they just need more time to recharge in life.

With our comprehensive gift guide for every type of person on your Christmas list, we’re certain you’ll get the title of most thoughtful gift giver.

The Techie

We live in a tech-focused world so naturally, people love receiving the latest and greatest in modern gadgets. We all know a person who simply has to have the most current version of a phone, camera or computer. Here are some gifts we recommend for the techie.

The Google Nest Cam Indoor Security Camera lets you see your home in HD no matter where you are. WiFi is the only prerequisite. You can even talk and listen through the camera and get alerts when your device detects suspicious motion. It’s the perfect gift for someone who’s away from home a lot or has an anxious pet they want to keep an eye on.

If you’re feeling ultra-generous this Christmas season, the LG 4K Ultra HD LED Smart TV is a great way to show your appreciation for the tech savvy friend who always helps you retrieve a deleted file. This reasonably-priced smart TV features incredible clarity and uses a webOS™ 4.0 Smart TV operating system so you can get the apps you want in a snap.

The Adventurer

You never know what the adventurer has up their sleeve. One day they’re completing a triathlon and the next, they’re off to backpack to a faraway place. The best gifts for the adventurer are things to help them tackle their lofty goals.

The Garmin Forerunner® 245 Music GPS Running Smartwatch is ideal for someone who is active and tracks their physical performance. This advanced smart watch is like having a virtual coach who can guide you with training and form. It can also sync with your streaming device so you can train along your favourite tunes

Any outdoor adventurer knows that proper winter gear is key to enjoying the great outdoors in Canada’s chilliest season. Canadian Tire has a great selection of WOODS outdoor gear, from hiking boots and backpacks to cold-weather approved tents.

The Foodie

Foodies love to cook, bake and host and depending on their particular niche, they’re pretty good at hinting at what they want. Pay attention to their current foodie goals. Maybe they’ve been talking about perfecting a Basque cheesecake recipe or elevating their at-home coffee brewing.

A stand mixer is an essential kitchen tool and if your foodie friend has been thinking about upgrading their mixer, here’s your chance to swoop in. The Cuisinart Precision Master Stand Mixer features a shiny red exterior with 12 speeds for mixing all kinds of batters and doughs. It includes a chef’s whisk, flat mixing paddle, dough hook and splashguard with pour spout so any baking dream can become a reality.

If your foodie friend is a bit of an espresso aficionado, they’ll appreciate Nespresso’s highly-rated Premium Coffee & Espresso Machine. Along with great espresso and just the right amount of crema, this attractive machine is quick and easy to use and requires virtually no clean up.

The Chill-Lover

We all know someone who seems to always have it together — calm, cool and collected. Gift the chillest person you know with devices that will make their lives easier and put them in an even more zen state of mind.

Relieve them from vacuuming duty by giving them the Shark IQ Robot Self-Empty. The self sufficient vacuum can be voice controlled to navigate each room while collecting dust and debris. The bagless vacuum is also self-emptying so that lucky someone can spend more time on relaxing and self-care.

Another excellent gift option? The Ellia Ascend Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser. After a hectic day, the chill-lover knows a long luxurious bath and an aromatherapy session is the ultimate way to unwind.
