I made my way to the One of a Kind Christmas Show this weekend to start my holiday shopping. After a few hours scouring the stands and looking at all the local handmade goods, I put together a list of my favourite gifts ideas. There were so many items to choose from - from knickknacks and gourmet treats to furniture and kitchen utensils - but I narrowed down my finds to 5 perfect holiday gifts. Here they are! Can you guess which ones I went home with? 1 Christmas cards from Flakes Paperie - this postcard's design is absolutely stunning - it immediately caught my eye! It's also fun to send a postcard instead of a card and envelope this season - a little variety never hurts! 2 Dish towels from Bookhou - these come in a variety of colourful patterns and will make the perfect gift for anyone who spends a lot of time in the kitchen. 3 Wall art from Pi'lo - these cream canvases are adorned with a simple word and and 3D motif -choose this gift for anyone looking to decorate a guest room or baby room. 4 Laptop bags from C Comme Ca - travel bags are not always very stylish, especially practical bags to carry your laptop. These are quite the opposite! They are stylish, light, and come in different colours. 5 Mugs and bowls from Blackbird Pottery - I love the modern design of these and the small bowls look incredibly quaint when stacked on top of one another.
