It’s that time of year again and I want – I got is putting together massive Gift Guides of things I think would be perfect to give as gifts this season. The fourth Gift Guide in the series deals with primary with food and the gifts for the home.
Carnivore Club. I have no personal experience with this meat of the month subscription but I’m so intrigued. I’d totally love to receive this as a gift and they do offer gift boxes for special occasions.
Carnivore Club is the exclusive meat of the month club for discerning individuals! Every month members of the Carnivore Club will receive 4 to 6 different selections of unique charcuterie, exotic terrines and artisan crafted jerky’s from around the world.
Carnivore Club specializes in finding you products that cannot be found at your local grocery store or butcher shop. Our partners are all small artisan producers because we believe in the quality and care each partner takes to create their products.
Drink Sloane Tea from a DavidsTea Tea Mug. I love these mugs as they make a big mug of tea and include a strainer. The mugs are $19.50 (or 2 for $30 online) and available online or at any DavidsTea location.
This mug doesn’t have a strainer but the Pink Tartan x Keurig mug is really cute. Kimberley Newport-Mimran created the illustration and 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the mugs goes to Toronto East General Hospital. It’s $19.99 and available online at Keurig.ca.
My favourite kitchen gadget of last year is the Sodastream. I can’t recommend it enough and it would be an amazing gift. Sodastream systems start at $99 and are available online or at your local Walmart or The Bay.
If you are getting someone a Sodastream be sure to get them a gift certificate to BuyCoffeeCanada.com because then they can buy Torani Syrup to make Italian Sodas. I swear by Torani Syrup for my Sodastream.
I’m pretty smitten with the Cucina Kitchen Trio on a slate from Fruits & Passion. I received a package of items from Fruits & Passion and experienced first hand the lovely fragrances from the Cucina collection. How can you resist Rosemary & Cardamom? This gift set includes hand soap, dish soap and hand cream on a slate. Perfect for the kitchen and exactly where I placed mine.
