This year give simple gifts to ensure your loved ones eat, drink and make merry!
Handcrafted Spice Blends
A sparkly jar of candied mandarin orange peel is a perfect gift for the baker on your list. It's also a great way to use up all those peels!
Artisan Tea Jelly
Victoria's Silk Road Tea carries a beautiful selection of seasonal teas that make perfect gifts on their own, but you can take it one step further and make inspired tea jellies using their simple recipe.
Cup of Good Cheer
Package up a bottle of Sheringham Distillery Coastal Craft Spirits with some of the cocktail ingredients featured on Sheringham's recipe page, add a couple of nice glasses and you basically just won Christmas or New Year's Eve or life.
Cheese & Board
Choose your favourite Salt Spring Island Cheese, or perhaps a few, and wrap them up with a beautiful cutting board. This is a wonderful gift to bring if you're a guest in someone's home over the holidays.
A fondue set is a super fun gift to bring home for the holidays—especially if you're a guest. A fondue night brings people together and is the perfect nostalgic activity for cold nights. Throw in some nice cheese or a bottle of kirsch and some nutmeg and you have yourself a pretty fabulous gift.
Choose a basket (check local thrift shops or purchase from a local artisan) and fill it with all the lovely things. For a practical and festive touch, you can line the basket with a holiday apron, tablecloth or napkins. Fill the basket with a tin of your best baking with the recipe cards, tuck in a bag of nuts and some lovely satsumas with the leaves still intact and maybe add a bottle of wine or seasonal non-alcoholic beverage. You can customize this however you like to suit any budget or recipient. It's easy to add little treats for kids and pets.
