Ottawa: Top Five Under $25


It’s that time of year again. We bring you our Top Five Under $25—the list that promises to help you remember all those who might not be at the top of your list but are certainly no less important.
This year, you’ll be sure not to forget:

Great Aunt Mildred
A scrumptious treat from “the pie lady” of Old Ottawa South is just the thing. From her home on Aylmer Ave., Kerry Duffy runs Life of Pie, an extensive catering service specializing in pies, tarts and a host of other holiday specialties. At $10 a pie, you might have to take one home for yourself (just to test it out, of course). Tie it up with a ribbon and you’re all set.

The Teacher or Gymnastics/Music/Art Instructor
Impress the teach with a bit of history. Go to The World of Maps on Wellington Village, where you can find a 22″ x 28″ poster in sepia tones of Ottawa as it looked in 1893. Entitled “Bird’s Eye Ottawa, 1893″, it’s a steal at $18.50. While you are there, you might like the “map wrapping paper” available for $5.95 a sheet. There are dozens of other original maps and posters, including some for children.
