Holiday Gift Ideas for 2017

Got food lovers on your shopping list? Click on my annual “Gift this” list for Calgary’s City Palate magazine above to find some inspiration for your gifting this year.

Or, if you are heading to the mountains before the holidays, check out the 17 ideas from businesses I profiled in the Town of Canmore on the Canmore Food Tours blog here.

Celebrate Canada 150 by showering your loved ones with Alberta and Canadian-made. What better way to stay True North, Strong and Free?

Heading out for last minute #ChristmasShopping? – here’s an idea list that might help

Gather the Goods and then Gather together – photo – Karen Anderson

Every year for  Calgary’s City Palate magazine’s December issue – the “entertaining” issue – I share a list of cool things for cooks. This year’s is  chock-a-block full of  Retro Gifts for Food Lovers. (these dozen goodies will be cool things #33 – #44 on this blog’s list)

I made the list and now, as I head out the door for “just a few more things”, I’m checking it twice. There’s nothing naughty. It’s all nice.

Since even I am going back to my own list, I thought I’d share it again here in case it might help you. We can all use a little help with fun ideas in this week of preparing for the Christmas holidays.

Hi Ho, Hi Ho – it’s off to shop I go.

Wishing you great Christmas Cheer,
