How about a cup of tea? Or a really (really) nice cup of tea? Forget about boiling kettles and dunking a teabag in a mug as you rush from one job to another.

Comfortable, Cozy & Cute!
If feeling relaxed and comfortable is your thing, we have you covered and we are right there with you. There is nothing as relaxing in a comfy pair of sweats. Here are our favourites which crank up the cuteness!

Old School Board Games
Do you remember when we were kids and played board games (some of us thankfully never grew out of this) with friends and family? No Facebook, Instagram or checking status updates. No distractions, just quality time. Guess what, board games still exist! The classics are still there and there are new games begging to be played as you huddle around in your PJ's drinking hot chocolate (we have been known to add Bourbon or Baileys... just sayin').
You can't go wrong with any of the classics (Sorry!, Battleship, The Game of Life or Candyland. Or maybe you prefer to kick it up a gear with Pandemic, Betrayal at House on the Hill or kick back old school with BlockBuster! The Game. Your friends and family will thank you. Check them out here.
Tech & Gaming
If you are into gaming this holiday season is probably one you have been waiting on for a while. With Sony and Microsoft battling it out for your hard earned bucks, both have highly anticipated updates to their gaming systems coming online in November.
Sony's PS5 will ship in time for the holidays and comes in two editions: Regular Console or All Digital. Both promise to be epic and very hard to find! Check it out here.
In hot pursuit is the new XBOX Series X from Microsoft. Similar to Sony's PS5, there are two basic options for buyers, entry level (S Series) or the more powerful (X Series). As far as we are concerned you can't go wrong with either of these. Check them out here.
And don't forget... Shop Local!
This has been a tough year for small business owners and many have found innovative ways to transform their businesses online. You simply cannot beat the quality of small craft stores and they have pulled off a small miracle staying in business and adapting. Don't forget to give them some love too.
From artisan breads, pastries, coffee, donuts, ice-cream, clothing, house decor to pet fashion, booze and home organizing... chances are there are small local business who are pumping out amazingly unique products which your family and friends would love. They are online, find them (they can't find you).
