places to go, people to see: union station holiday market

Calling all commuters. If you’re one of the hundreds of thousands of people who pass through Toronto’s Union Station, you’re in luck. The busy train station’s picturesque great hall will house a holiday market all through next week (December 1 through 7). Hosted by Toronto Market Co., the event will showcase artisanal pieces from 22 vendors. Grab the perfect gift for that hard-to-please person on my holiday shopping list on my way to the office? Don’t mind if I do! Here are a few favourites that I’m coveting.

places to go, people to see: ago holiday trunk shows

It’s time to face the jingle: Christmas is fast approaching. I’m always the last in the office to get in the festive spirit, too busy mourning the passing of fall, but if you’re an early shopper looking for unique presents, hit up the gift shop at Toronto’s Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) next week. Starting on Tuesday, November 18 and running through Friday the 21st, the shop will play host to a variety of trunk shows. On Tuesday, Israel-based Oshra Tishbi will present its wide range of wine-and-fruit preserves (think: passionfruit-champagne and fig-cabernet) – an ideal pairing to cheese and a great hostess gift. Wednesday’s highlight is Carole Tanenbaum’s dazzling collection of vintage-inspired costume jewellery. The fashionista on your list will thank you, whether you opt for a piece in the $100 range or a show-stopping $2,500 choker necklace. The sweet tooth in your life will gladly devour a token by JAB Chocolate, an artisanal small-batch chocolatier (on site on both Wednesday and Thursday), but your nationalistic buddy will be doubly pleased with a box of My Favourite Fudge. The Caledon, Ont.-based fudge maker has something for every taste, offering 60 flavours, including Canadian Shield and Algonquin Trail. These and other unique brands will strut their stuff, but even if you don’t make it to AGO’s store next week, here are five reasons you it should be on your holiday shopping itinerary – if it isn’t already.

trim your tree with these adorable ornaments

Growing up my family tree (real, never fake!) was quite a mishmash of decorations, decorated with pretty much every ornament my brother and I made as children, mixed with gorgeous glass ornaments my mom collected over the years. It was a little bit glam (stunning pink glass bulbs are still my fav!) and a little bit not-so-glam (picture popsicle stick reindeer and pinecone/sparkle grade 2 masterpieces). These days I’ve been starting to collect ornaments for my own tree and am always on the hunt for some whimsical pieces. I’ve picked up vintage glass bulbs from markets over the years but continue my hunt for those ‘cute’ additions – reminiscent of my younger years, but with less craft glue involved! Here are some of my fav. picks.

easy ideas for a sparkling wine and fondue holiday party

When it comes to holiday parties, I veer toward the approach that simpler = better. Parties that take minimal effort to pull together not only leave the host feeling relaxed, but guests, too. This year, I’d like to invite my friends over for a sparkling wine and fondue party. Inspired by a Jackson-Triggs après ski party that I attended, here are four easy steps (and two recipes).
