Valentine's Gifts for him (and a STAPLES CANADA GIVEAWAY!)

My husband is awfully difficult to buy a gift for.

AWFULLY DIFFICULT.

He never needs anything, he rarely wants anything, and frankly it's a pain in the butt to try to shop for him! 

(I, of course, am a dream to buy gifts for. Diamonds and roses, for the win!)

The catch? I really LIKE buying him gifts. Especially for Valentine's day.

Yes, it's a "Hallmark holiday" - I know - but I love Valentine's day and I love trying to find the perfect (unexpected) gift...sometimes from the most "unexpected" of places.

This year, he's getting a gift from Staples.

Yes, you heard me... Staples. I know, I thought the same thing too. Paper and toner for Valentines?

But look what Staples has for the man in your life!:



1. HP Slate Tablet | 2. Laptop Briefcase | 3. Kindle eReader | 4. Memory Foam Pillow | 5. SmartWatch | 6. Telescope | 7. Cooler Rack | 8. Samsung Galaxy Tablet




Yes- all that is available from Staples. 

We're not talking paper, pencils and toner for your printer anymore folks. 

We are talking "I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU GOT ME THAT FOR VALENTINES DAY YOU WONDERFUL HUMAN BEING!" gifts.

Staples isn't just an office supply store after all.

And, while I won't tell you what I am getting my husband off of that list (or what I'm hinting for him to purchase for me!), I will tell you that Staples Canada is giving away one item  from the above list (winner's choice!) to a lucky Sleeping Is For Losers reader. 

Contest time:

Want to win a tablet? A telescope? A SmartWatch? An e-reader? A cooler rack (so genius!)?

Canadian residents only- enter below (using Rafflecopter) for your chance to win! Don't forget to leave a comment on the blog (mandatory), telling me what item you would choose if you were the winner!

Good luck:)

    As an aside, have you heard of Five Four Clothing? That's what I've got lined up for my husband so far this year. He hates clothing shopping, so this service picks out a few things for him each month. It looks interesting.
