There is a blanket of snow covering the streets and I have already shoveled over 10 times. I think it is safe to say that it is starting to feel like Christmas is just around the corner even though it is early November. To help get you in the Christmas spirit, I am sharing with you our favourite family gifts for the whole family. You know, the gifts that you wrap up and open together because they are either all the same or meant to be for everyone in the family. And… one lucky family will have a chance to win all of these amazing gifts at the end of this post!

Get Active as a Family with Spike Ball
Two summers ago our family was introduced to Spike Ball at our friend’s cabin in Montana. I was instantly hooked and so were the kids. While a little bit of space is helpful, my husband and I have been known to play the game in our basement after the kids are sleeping.
What is Spikeball? Imagine if Volleyball and 4 square had a baby. That baby would be Spike Ball. The game Spike Ball is highly addictive and can be played almost anywhere. It can be adapted for all abilities which means that kids as young as 2 can play the game. Do yourself a favour and Youtube Spikeball. Order yours in time for Christmas here.
Family Set of Pyjamas from Lazy Ones
Imagine waking up on Christmas Day and handing out a present to each family member. To their surprise, they open up their present and find that each person has a pair of Lazy Ones matching pajamas. Whether your kids are 1 or 20, you all immediately throw the pajamas on and the tradition begins.
Our favourite style is the classic Bear Cheeks Buffalo Plaid Flap Jack Onesies. We even have a set for our 1-year-old puppy Ukee! Check out the various styles of family matching pajamas here.
Hiking Guide for Families
I am so excited about the Hiking Guide for Families. For the past 3 years, I have been working on a hiking guide that includes some of the best hikes for families near Banff, Canmore, Kananaskis, Bragg Creek, and Calgary. All of the hikes in the book are rated specifically for kids and includes information about stroller/wheelchair accessibility. Each book in the Kickstarter also comes with a Hiking Challenge and a set of really cute animal stickers. The book will also include tips/games, safety, trail information, nearby attractions, and more!
The Hiking Guide for Families was on pre-order through the Kickstarter and will be sent out in time to one lucky winner for the summer 2020 hiking season.
Enter to win all of these amazing prizes valued at over $450 below!
The giveaway will start on November 12th at 8:00 am MST and ends on November 19th at 11:49 pm MST.
