Original Christmas gifts

Vacation – everyone

Giving (full!) time to our children is giving an underestimated gift. You could book a full weekend away from your home and its thousand chores. You could also book a trip in a camp or a weekend in a cabin or an inn. Better even; give a theme (animals, chic, cooking, no technology…) to this great escape.

  • You can consult Go Canada for condos, inns and cabins suggestions. You will also find activities and family packages: winter fun, dogsledding and more.
  • Hotels and inns usually charge between $55 and $100 a night for a family (2 adults and 2 children).
  • A weekend in a camp with the whole family may be cheaper. Check out the Certified camps of Quebec Association website for an exhaustive list of all camps and activities available in Quebec.

My child is smelly!

Your child is now 6 years old. The innocence of childhood still shines brightly in his or her eyes but… they're smelly! When your child gets hot, you scrunch your nose and smell a tinge of sweat. Are they too young for deodorant?
