Strawberry Fields Forever

There are some universal scents we tend to associate with summertime – coconut, watermelon, and lemonade to name a few. One of the most frequent favourites out there is juicy strawberry, particularly here in Canada since we can only get local strawberries (as youΒ should be buying) during the summery months. I thought it’d be fun today to theme my post around strawberries, with a few ripe for the picking ideas for seasonal gift-giving. Indulge!

Chef’n Stemgem Strawberry Huller – $8.49 @ Kitchen Stuff Plus
Tear out strawberry hulls in a snap with this adorable, kid-friendly kitchen gadget. Simply clamp & twist (as shown here) and in seconds you’ve got a perfectly hulled berry to bite into, slice, throw into a pitcher of lemonade, or fill with whipped cream or chocolate mousse. Makes a lovely hostess gift for your neighbour that invites you to a BBQ or play date.

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Muted Strawberry Red – $33 @ Sephora
A friend of mine that knows a thing or two about make-up sagely advised me that bright, cheery colours are the way to go when blushing your cheeks. Although it’s tempting to reach for muted neutrals, they can actually dull your skin. Aim for saturated shade that works with your skin tone, like this rich, clay-based blush that works overtime for up to twelve hours, and helps minimize oily skin (like say, that slathered in sunscreen). Given the theme of the post, naturally I gravitated toward this shade – hook your favourite friend up for a special birthday treat.

Strawberry Jam & Peanut Butter Rings – $14.57 @ Scrumptious Doodle
It’s hard to pick one delightful adornment from Etsy shop Scrumptious Doodle, which specializes in dessert-themed gems. But I’m digging this too cute set of rings that give quite literal meaning to the expression, ‘We go together like peanut butter & jelly.’ Share the set with a best friend that’s college-bound this fall, or gift the pair to that quirky friend of yours as a fun surprise.

Strawberry Fruit Syrup – $8.95 @ Prince Edward Island Preserve Company
Make brunch a real treat with a drizzle of this sweet & sticky fruit syrup (also available in a half-dozen other berry variations). Throw it onto waffles or crepes with a dollop of whipped cream, or mix some up with your favourite ice cream sundae. In fact, bring some handmade waffle cones, vanilla gelato, and a bottle of this stuff to the next kiddie or adult party alike and you’ll instantly be a hero.

Northern Strawberry Collection – $10.50 – $22.50 @ Fruits & Passion
Start your mornings off with a virtual visit to the farmers’ market with any item from the new Fruits & Passion Northern Strawberry collection. With Vitamin C-laden berries grown using sustainable practices right here in Canada, your skin will be drenched in moisturizing safflower and sunflower oils while your nose will be tingling with the unique blend of fresh berries, sparkling grapefruit, and garden-grown rhubarb alongside strawberry flowers and pink tulips. Put together a little gift basket as a sweet houseguest gift whilst you travel this summer.

If you’re feeling juiced up with gift-giving prowess, you’ll be thrilled to hear I’ve got two berrylicious gift sets to give away, featuring the Northern Strawberry goodies from Fruits & Passion. How to win you ask? Simple (at least, the entering part is):

1) Leave a comment below by June 23rd and tell me which sweet strawberry idea is ripe for the picking for your next gift-giving occasion.

2) Entries are limited to one per person / per email address / per household (or more if you score bonus entries). A random draw will be conducted on or around June 24th to select the winner, who will have 48 hours to respond before another winner is chosen in their place.

3) Entries are limited to Canadians that have reached the age of majority in their province. Quebec is not eligible to participate in this promotion.

4) Bonus Entry: Like Fruits & Passion on Facebook and give me a shoutout in the comments when you’ve done so (along with your Facebook username) so I can credit you!
