Last-Minute Gift Ideas – 2010 Olympics & Paralympics Gifts & Memorabilia

Vancouver 2010 Olympic Team Canada Replica Hockey Jersey, one of the items on sale at Vanoc's Olympic Store.

It may seem a no-brainer, but I’ll admit it: I didn’t think of buying 2010 Olympics and Paralympics gifts for the holidays until recently, i.e., the last minute.

To save you the “right, duh!” moment I experienced, I’ll say it now: The wide-range of 2010 Olympics and Paralympics merchandise make it easy to find the perfect present for practically anyone. So if you still have stockings to stuff or people on your gift-giving list, check out the Olympic Store.

Vanoc’s online Olympic Store carries toys, sweaters, sports wear, collectibles, jewelry, toques, baby wear, and more. And if it’s too late to get what you want delivered in time for Christmas, you can find a similar selection in person at The Bay department stores, including The Bay downtown.

I really wish I’d thought of 2010 Olympic gifts sooner, but I still have time to get a round of Canadian Olympic Team toques (just $10 each) for my whole family.
