GIFT IDEAS

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

With the Holidays around the corner, there never seem to be enough ideas for everyone on your list.

Here are our top three ideas for just about anyone.

1. Patrick Demarchelier hardcover: This beautiful book is perfect for any coffee table or any fashion lover. Over 400 pages of Patrick Demarchelier’s photographs from his earliest work at Harper’s Bazaar to his collaboration with Vogue. Every shot is more than just fashionable, it’s completely timeless. If you find this book anywhere you’re in luck! It’s hard to come by, which makes it all the more special.

2. Hudson’s Bay Company Millenium Point Blanket: It’s always great  to get anything Canadian. This blanket is a modern interpretation of the classic Hudson’s Bay Blanket in a palette of taupe and brown. This style comes in all sizes, from a throw to a king-sized blanket. It would be a great addition to any couch, bedroom or cabin.

3. La Tourangelle White Truffle Oil:  This could be gifted along with a great cookbook , kitchen tools or by itself. This great gift under $30 is the perfect splash of subtle flavour to any simple dish. It would make macaroni and cheese  a gourmet dish.

BEN’S WINTER SURVIVAL ESSENTIALS

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

Here is my list of a 5 essential things that help me survive the cold winter months:

.

1. Puffer Vest

Best layering piece. Wear it under your jacket for extra warmth, or over a blazer for extra chicness.

2. Epsom Salts Bath

After a freezing day, a long, warm epsom salts bath warms your bones and loosens you muscles.

3. Moneysworth Pro-Tex

All Weather Repellent Snow boots with a suit is not my look. Spraying Moneysworth repellent on my suede and leather shoes allows we me wear my favourite shoes in the winter without leaving them covered in salt and slush stains.

4. Sweet Pure Honey CinnaButter

Nothing warms me up on a cold winter morning like Sweet Pure Honey CinnaButter on my gluten free toast. It is spicy and sweet, but best of all, it is created by a local farmer and my dear friend Stella in Porcupine Plain, Saskatchewan.

5. Laughter

Laughter is best cure for the cold. An evening spent with my closest friends Omid, Jon, Sunny and Liis is always sure to produce a non-stop laughing fest.
