What are you getting your peeps for the holidays?
For us, there are some people you can effortlessly buy gifts for. As a matter of fact, mama Teresa (Jenni’s mom) sends her a Santa style wish list every year, and it makes shopping a BREEZE.
And then, there are other people who leave you wandering around store after store like a holiday zombie, until you finally give up, buy something sub-par, and vow to do a gift giving recon mission WAY ahead of schedule next year.
This is the holidays though; you want something unique, enjoyable and perfect for your gift-receiving counterpart.
DIY style presents are always fashionable, they show thought, effort, and getting a hand-crafted treat in the end is such a nice touch. So, if you’re looking for gifts in the DIY department, visit our DIY Spa Package where the perfect skin treats and gifts are only a couple recipes away.
But, if you’re not into the whole DIY thing, and you’re still scrambling, then we have also done some digging and found an amazing list of last minute gifts that you can order online (or visit in person) with just a few clicks.
We’re giving you a variety of options to fit any taste and budget, so now is your call to decide who’s been naughty or nice this year…

Southbrooke Vineyards is an Ontario winery that tops the charts when it comes to biodiversity. As a matter of fact, they are a biodynamic farm! What’s biodynamic, you say?
