Happy Holidays from Sound of Sleep Consulting! I’m excited to share some of my favourite local products, all of which would make wondering gifts during this season of giving. Stay tuned to my Facebook page for my 12 Days of Giveaways starting Monday December 11th!
For the Mom that just moved into the neighbourhood
Mommy Connections Ottawa and Area connects local families to each other, and to professionals, programs, and products in their community. Programs such as Travelling Tot and Mom and Baby give moms the opportunity to connect with their tribe, as well as discover the many opportunities to do fun things locally!
For the Soul Searcher
Intuitive Life Coach Gesa Harmston supports women through the process of tapping into their own intuition to connect to their place of strength so they can realize their purpose and believe in themselves. Her coaching is done over the phone or online so it’s great for someone that doesn’t have much time for running around.
A gift for yourself…because you deserve it!
Release, Relax, and be Ready for anything with a package from Hair Expectations! Designed to reduce and eliminate the stress and tension that you hold in your upper back, this relaxation back massage, Indian Head Massage, and wash and blowout will take you from pleasure to party ready in no time.
For the Latin Soul…or the Mom who just wants to get her groove on with her baby
Tuck your little ones into a baby carrier and introduce them to music and movement while getting a great workout and socializing with other parents! Salsa Babies™ classes are perfect for those who have always wanted to learn to dance, but can’t convince their partner to take lessons!
For the Adventurous Type
Gift a trip to Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo for a family experience like you’ve never had before! With a public feeding and a hands on room with Fruit Bats, you’ll get in touch with a fun learning experience to remember.

Starr Gymnastics is the perfect place for little ones to improve power, balance, flexibility, strength, and coordination. Fun for drop-in playtime, birthday parties, or camp, your children will make new friends and learn amazing skills no matter what their level of experience.
For the socially conscious
World-Changing Kids recently launched their 2018 Calendar for parents, teachers, educators, and childcare providers. It helps adults teach children acceptance, kindness, empathy, social activism, inclusion, engagement and peace through “Conversation Starter” email kits with child size explanations of socially, environmentally, and religiously important dates, why they are important, and an action that the child can take to honour the date. A beautiful way to share the spirit of loving, giving, and accepting this holiday season.
