“As a parent, the holidays are such a special time of year – but they can also be a stressful time trying to find the perfect gift for your children. This year, we really wanted to help gift givers by showcasing our top toys and books that kids won’t want to put down,” said Kirsten Chapman, President, Indigo and Indigo Kids. “We want to help make gift giving easy and joyful, which is why we also offer free kids gift wrap in all stores and free shipping to any of our stores during the holiday season, ensuring that surprises stay surprises.”

At Indigo, it’s about more than just the gift, it’s about the gifts that encourage moments together. Gather the family around classic stories such as an Indigo exclusive version of Anne of Green Gables and start a new tradition. Or, gift bestselling author Raina Telgemeier’s latest graphic novel Guts that is sure to inspire conversation through its important lesson about building courage to face fears. Diary of a Wimpy Kid fans won’t want to miss out on the Indigo exclusive edition for an evening of giggles with main character Greg.

Little ones will love the Dreamimals Dream Pillow where they can write a bedtime wish and tuck into their pillow. Inspire a budding technology whiz with the Osmo Little Genius Starter Kit and take kids aged three to five on a hands-on learning adventure. For the first time ever, the new Dog Man: Attack of the Fleas board game brings one of the most popular kids’ characters outside of the pages of a book, producing hours of fun.

Plus, as Canada’s headquarters for Harry Potter enthusiasts of all ages, customers can bring magic to life through special edition books including the latest illustrated edition of Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire, and new games and toys such as the Wow!

My niece and nephews live far from me so these ideas are helpful because I never know what to get them or what they’re in to. Thanks!
