Operation ‘Get That Gift’


Stuck in a fruitcake-shaped rut?
Is there someone on your list that’€™s hard to buy for? Never fear! Here are a few of our favourite places to find that perfect gift.

Heavens to Betsy is a self-proclaimed knick-knack bonanza. They have an eclectic mix for pretty much everyone on your list’€”kitchen gadgets, accessories, wallets, unique jewellery, Christmas ornaments and a few robots thrown in for good measure.

Blend Creations is our destination of choice for unique Twitter necklaces, bottle openers, and emoticon cufflinks. It’€™s geek chic at its best.

Check out Lee Valley Tools for some great finds for the handyman, the chef, and the gardener you know. Shop online, or take advantage of their pre-paid parcel pick up service. We love the crokinole board and wooden log kit. The gyroscopes would make really cool stocking stuffers for kids or for the young at heart (like our beloved).
