1 Cilantro and lime lollipops
Who said candy is just for kids? We love this adult spin on the childhood confection. This sweet gift set comes with four lollipops on wooden ball sticks and are flavoured with lime and embedded with cilantro for a unique taste experience. Cilantro and Lime Natural Lollipops Gift Set, The Shopping Bag, $6.99.
2 Artisanal salt
These hand-harvested salts hail from Vancouver Island and each box is packaged by hand to ensure the highest quality product. If the foodie you’re shopping for prefers savoury to sweet, then this is a winning gift idea. We suggest the Bestsellers Pack because it has a sampling of four different flavours to try: Smoked Sea Salt, Fleur de Sel, Roasted Garlic Sea Salt and Blue Cheese Sea Salt. Bestsellers Pack Salt, Vancouver Island Salt Co, $25.
