Still shopping for gifts?  How about some of these ideas?


For her:

FABULOUS Nicole Miller Ruffled Wrap (Black or Grey) : $19.99 at Costco. Find it in the clothing section where the boxed items are (with underwear & socks)



For him: Kleen Kanteen Insulated hot beverage holder:  Stainless mug will keep beverages hot for hours. Available with Café Cap. Purchase online through eCause Canada!


For anyone: Recycled wine bottle fused (melted down) into a Cheese Platter. Wrapped with a tea towel & cheese spreader.  Beautifully handcrafted by local artist Anne Whelan of Vidriana.  The raised, easy-pick up handle fashioned from the bottleneck makes this fabulous platter even more unique than others you may have seen. (way better picture on her site!  Here’s the link 🙂 )

$40 & up

SpaFinder Gift Certificates. Valid at participating spas  2 x $50 Certificates for $79.99 at Costco. ($50 certificate only costs you $40-Great!)

Kiss Naturals Lip Balm, Soap or Perfume-Making Kits- Safe, sustainable products Made in Canada!  Available online from eCause Canada assorted sizes & prices.

Koob the Viking Game: Outdoor fun for kids & adults alike! Can be played in the snow or sand!  See my review.

Ficklets Eyewear Charm Huggers: Fabulous stocking stuffer!!!  Kids can change up their glasses daily.  My daughter LOVES hers!

The Crayola Crayon Maker– where you can transform broken crayons into fabulous multi-coloured new crayons.  The machine uses high heat but locks until cool.  Looks fabulous!  Toys R Us was carrying, but not sure what supply looks like today
The Modello Pirate Ship model.  Kids can build on their own -no glue or scissors required! Quality cardstock pieces must be coloured first so there are multiple steps and this can be a collaborative project among several children.  Looks awesome and I plan to have my kids try it out!

Happy shopping!
