Holiday Gift Guide 2019

by Kelly Harris

If you’re like us and haven’t finished your holiday shopping yet, don’t worry! We’ve got some great ideas for you and you still have time! You can shop local right here in #BurlON for some unique gifts for all those on your list!

 We started our shopping in Downtown Burlington and couldn’t not go into Harmony Fine Jewellers. We love some bling and their store is absolutely perfect for it. They have jewellery for everyone and all budgets. The staff are very helpful and friendly and will gift wrap your purchase beautifully so it can be placed under the tree all ready to go.

Our next stop was at Joelle’s where we found a whole lot to add to our wish list! We loved these tops that are perfect for holiday parties. They had a great selection of hats, perfect for any lady you have on your list. And the Candy Cane caramels and Christmas trees in the cute little boxes make the perfect stocking stuffer.

Can’t forget that special guy in your life and Scrivener’s Men’s Apparel in Downtown Burlington has you covered for that. They’ve got an amazing selection of shirts; from traditional to something a bit “wilder” if your guy will go for that. And you can’t forget the fun socks to go with the shirt!

We always love Pure Boutique in Downtown Burlington and can find gift items there all year round when we need a gift for someone. We loved these plaid gloves and scarves and also these floral handbags. They also have lots of fun signs in all sizes that make a unique gift.

if you know someone heading south this winter, then Forever Summer Swimsuits is your shop. A new swimsuit or beach bag would be a great gift and if you don’t know their size, a gift card is perfect so they can go pick out their own suit.

While we were out exploring the shops we had to stop at La Creme de la Creme Creamery Inc on John Street to warm up with a delicious Belgian hot chocolate.  They have some great gift ideas and fun stocking stuffers. We loved the assortment of mugs and festive wine glasses, all for $10 each.  We also picked up some of these great chocolate holders for 4 of their amazing chocolates, that makes the perfect addition over a bottle of wine for a hostess gift.

No holiday season is complete without a visit to our friends at Springridge Farm where their gift barn is beautifully decorated and filled with wonderful ideas for Christmas gifts. We always get hot chocolate packages and specialty candies for stocking stuffers. They also have a great selection of unique books and their jams make a wonderful gift so we always pick up a few to have on hand as a hostess gift, teacher gift or anyone gift!

No stocking is complete without treats and our friends at Mrs. B’s Gifthouse have that covered for us. One stop there and we were able to stock up on biscotti of all types and flavours freshly made on the premise.
