It’s that time of year again! Despite the crowds at the mall and hearing Jingle Bells a billion times a day, we at Suite 203 love the holiday season. Our favourite part? Finding that perfect gift that you know will strike a cord with the receiver. Whether it’s something inspiring, motivating or smile-inducing, we like gifts that suit the character of the recipient. Here’s a few presents that are topping our gift guide this year:
For the future Top Chef
Cooking is an indispensable part of the holidays whether it’s with family or for potlucks among friends and co-workers. We like the Just Cook line of condiments that will spice up any dinner party. A selection of six different flavourful spice blends is suitable for all dishes imaginable and adds just the right amount of magic to all things food. We think the Chipotle Bourbon sounds pretty amazing! Available at Urban Bonfire, $12.
Hak’s BQQ sauce, Master chef Sharone Hakman’s authentic “secret weapon”, keeps things hot and smokey this winter. The Herbed Coffee Rub hits the spot every time! Available at Urban Bonfire, $12.
For the well-heeled woman
After a whole year of hopping around in high heels, give legs and toes a well-deserved break with the Revitive LV. This pink machine is not your typical foot massager; it uses electrical muscle stimulation waveforms to relieve achy legs and swollen feet caused by extensive periods of walking and sitting. Available online and at Pharmaprix for $239.99.
For the home-body
Nothing beats snuggling up in front of a fireplace during a snowy night then doing so on a luxurious, plush rug. Give the gift of coziness with a Suri rug from Sumaq Rugs. These Alpaca fur rugs are made to order in your choice of 20 colours, so there is a perfect rug for every space. Plus, 5% of Sumaq profits go back to the community in which the rugs were crafted, adding a feel-good factor to this gift idea. See Sumaq Rugs for retail locations.
For those who want to make a difference
Giving back is always in style! The “Just for Kids” Foundation raises funds to purchase new, high-priority equipment for The Montreal Children’s Hospital. This equipment becomes a vital part of the hospital’s everyday operations, and goes to work immediately to diagnose and treat its young and vulnerable patients. Put a smile on a child’s face by making a donation via the “Just for Kids” Foundation’s website.
