Not only did I get to cap off 2017 by spending a solid week and a half at home in Ottawa with my family (in many ways, the real gift, am I right?), but I was spoiled with food, laughter, and, of course, some incredible gifts.
When Christmas morning rolled around, the generosity of gifts I received from my parents and my family was, as always, completely overwhelming. Before I cap off a resoundingly successful and prosperous 2017 with a wordy and emotional blog post (soon to come), I wanted to take a few minutes of your time to share some of my favourite gifts I received over the Christmas holidays.
This ultimate holiday gift guide for anyone living in a condo is about items that are practical and pleasant for everyday life.
I live alone and I live in a condo. It’s both a blessing and a burden at the same time because while I have freedom and independence, any home you occupy by yourself is hard to maintain – especially when it’s small and unique in its layout. However, what’s managed to help me the most is the gifts I’ve received – from friends, from family, from my parents. Each small token has helped shape the home I’ve been able to build and has, in its own way, helped make my life even the slightest bit easier. That’s why this gift guide is so important to me.
