Collectively, we’re all spending a lot of time at home right now.
For so many students, remote workers, parents, and more, luxuries that were once available in offices and classrooms might not be anymore. Stocking our homes with the supplies we once had — or now need — has become necessary.
Staples Canada, in time for the gift giving season, has just opened its newest working and learning store in Calgary. This new location is the first of its kind in Alberta, featuring an all-new modern design sensibility paired with an industry-leading customer service experience and Solutionshop, their enhanced print and marketing hub.
Although Staples does have a Holiday Gift Guide available in-store and online that you can peruse to your heart’s content, we’ve gone ahead and made a list of our favourite gifts available from the retailer this year.
Even with most things being digital, it’s still so nice to write down a to-do list by hand in the mornings. Whether it’s for quick reminders, important notes, or doodling, the Gry Mattr Vegan Leather Notebook is just what you need. If only you had some quality pens…
Ok, everyone has pens, but there’s nothing quite like pressing a brand new, quality pen down onto paper. These Jotter pens have a streamlined style for smooth, clean lines, making them the perfect stocking stuffer for everyone on your list.
Wherever your work desk is and whatever it looks like right now, it could probably use an organizer. The Poppin Desk Organizer has three separate compartments for storage and adjustable sliders to fit anything you need placed. This is a great gift idea for messy people that might need help or the organized type who always appreciates a new way to tidy up.
The Frigidaire Retro Single Cup Coffee Maker in mint green is two things. First, it’s an easy to use, one-touch, automatic stop coffee maker with a removable drip tray. Second, it’s an artistic addition to your home. Gift this to the coffee lover on your list and let them brew delicious (and much-needed) coffee every morning in style.
The Gry Mattr Oil Diffuser that doubles as a moonlight will turn your home (or living room, or office) into a spa. Use the soft touch buttons to tweak the settings exactly to your liking. It has timer settings, covers up to 400 sq ft, and offers different scents to choose from. You’ll wonder how you’ve gone this long without it.
This candle, also from Gry Mattr, would be a great addition to an at-home spa experience. Earl Grey lovers will love this scented gift to enjoy in the bath, during a mid-work yoga break, while they cook, or really just whenever they feel like it. Candles are a great stress reliever, and what a much-needed gift that would be this holiday season.
Sitting in front of screens, documents, textbooks, and video calls can slowly take a toll on your back. This Christmas, give the gift of comfort. The cream coloured MidMod by Union & Scale Fabric Guest Chair would be incredible to find under the tree with a bright, red bow on it. With two armrests and padded cushions, this is the go-to home office chair that goes with every style of decor.
If you need a tablet for working from home or just relaxing to a TV show, the Galaxy Tab A7 is ideal. Feel confident with any task because this sleek device has 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. Or, let each episode play without a worry; the 7040mAh battery gives you the freedom to view longer without a charge.
These headphones promise the incredible sound quality Bose is known for, along with noise cancelling technology (perfect for WFH) and an extremely comfortable, over-the-ear style headset. You’ll be able to seamlessly use your phone with Alexa, Google Assistant, or any of the action buttons. Bonus: they’ll be perfect for playing all of the Christmas classics.
From December 4 to December 28, Staples Canada will bring its Contactless Curbside Pickup Container to its new store at 250 East Hills Square, giving Calgary customers an easy, contact-free way to shop for the holidays and pick up their gifts.
That said, Contactless Curbside Pickup is available at Staples Canada stores for all customers who prefer to shop ahead online.
