Gift ideas for everyone on your list, from your favourite foodie to your furry friend (and everyone in between).
Send a basket of mouth-watering love by selecting one of five Our Daily Brett gift baskets (starting from $150). The Mi Casa Es Sous Casa basket is the perfect hostess gift, full of comfort food essentials like biscotti, kale chips, crostini and more. If none of that quite hits the spot, try getting one custom made.
This is the perfect gift for the person in your life who loves to eat ice cream—even when it’s snowing. Fiasco offers a range of gelato subscriptions (starting from $50) that vary from one month to year-round doorstep delivery of four exclusive test kitchen flavours.
Buy your wine- or beer-loving friends one of these subscriptions and they will receive six bottles of Vine Art’s monthly wine (starting from $150) or beer selection (starting from $55), delivered directly to them. Each shipment comes with a detailed write up with pairing suggestions and tasting notes.
If your friend loves decorating their place with greenery, it’s time to book them a spot in this DIY terrarium class ($55). The best part is that all the materials are provided, so your friends can concentrate on building the perfect statement-making plant for their home. And if DIY isn’t their thing, you can purchase one here.
Help your friends keep track of their necklaces and earrings with this handy jewelry travel pouch ($38) from 27 Boutique. The pouches, made by Cinder & Sage, come with four velcro pockets that will keep necklaces from getting tangled and smaller accessories safely stowed.
Keep your little ones warm in this adorable toque ($20) made for babies and toddlers. Loving the design yourself? My Mila has toques in adult sizes, too.
Spoil your friend with three delicious smelling handcrafted soaps and a 100 percent cotton hand knit washcloth ($30). The soaps are made in Airdrie, A.B. and come in a wide range of scents including brown barley ale beer and blue coconut and pineapple.
Include your dog in the holiday festivities by treating them to a batch of biscuits from BARK’s Keep It Wild series ($12). Your furry friend will be thrilled with the selection of flavours available, including bacon and peanut butter.
These locally made cards (starting from $2.50) are the perfect touch to any gift.
