Doorbells & Sleigh Bells


Sharp-eyed readers will recognize that last month I continued my latent ‘My Favourite Things’ series with a sneaky entry about ‘Crisp Apple Strudel’. My primary purpose in doing that was in fact, so I could call this year’s hostess gifts post, Doorbells & Sleigh Bells. As always, these gifts are all reasonably priced, and designed to be stockpiled so you can break ’em out for everything from an open house party at a coworkers to family dinner at the in-laws. Enjoy!

Happy Herbivore Holidays & GatheringsHappy Herbivore Holidays & Gatherings by Lindsay S. Nixon – $23
By now I think I’ve nearly covered all of Lindsay S. Nixon’s amazing, foolproof, uber healthy vegan cookbooks (check out past reviews of Happy Herbivore titles here). I was wondering what this breakout chef would come up with next, and was delightfully surprised when I heard it was going to be a holiday book. The cookbook is divided up in to various types of celebrations – from winter holidays wherein a Hot Toddy would be mighty comforting, to a tailgating or appetizer-focused cocktail party, where she pulls together creative options like a Vegan Taco Bar. With over 130 recipes that’ll appeal to ominvores and vegetarians alike (including mouthwatering choices like Cola Barbecue Sauce and Hot Chocolate Muffins) this book takes the stress and fuss out of holiday cooking – and makes a lovely hostess gift particularly if you’re headed to a holiday dinner event.

DAVIDsTEA CandlesTea-Scented Candles – $19.50 each @ DAVIDsTEA
If you’ve ever brewed a cup of DAVIDsTEA, then you’ll know that the scent is one of the best parts of the entire drinking experience. A heady mix of rich flavours and earthy herbs and spices, go ahead – take a deep breath before sipping and you’ll see what I mean. Apparently so do the wizards over at DAVIDsTEA, because they’ve ‘bottled up’ their teas and released them as scented candles, housed in adorable mason jar containers. Made from clean-burning soy wax, now your home can smell like the bestselling fruity nutty Forever Nuts, or the country charm of Blueberry Jam, or for the holidays, the perennially popular blend, Santa’s Secret. An awesome choice for any DAVIDsTEA diehard that have already snapped up their winter teas – but wouldn’t mind bringing a little more heavenly scents into their lives.

Sparq Wine PearlsSPARQ Home Wine Pearls – $24.99 @ The Shopping Channel
You’ve seen whiskey rocks – but since most of us are sipping on wine over Christmas dinner, chances are this gift idea is a little more practical. These unique wine pearls are designed to be chilled in the freezer until it’s time to break out your dinner drinks. From there, simply pop one or two into your wine glass or cocktail tumbler, and these nifty ‘pearls’ will keep your drinks icy cool until the very last drop without diluting them as you would with ice. They’re also great if you’re breaking open a fresh bottle that hasn’t had time to chill – by adding the wine pearls it’ll be chilled out in no time. Because they’re made of stainless steel, they won’t absorb the scents and odors of your freezer either. Each set comes with 4 pearls – buy a bunch for everyone you know and you’ll never have a lukewarm sip of wine again.

EpicureEpicure ‘Good Food. Real Fast.’ Kits – $24.50+
Canadian brand Epicure has long been heralded to take the guesswork out of various seasonings – but now they’ve gone one step forward and made mealtime that much simpler. The brand has recently launched four, ready-to-gift meal kits that include a selection of their signature herb and spice blends (or other cuisine-specific items) along with free meal cards to give you a range of ideas to make simple, healthy, affordable meals – pretty much the trifecta of any busy host’s wish list for making a meal. Not shopping for a chef? They’ve also got a fun ‘Good Cocktails’ set filled with gourmand salt for rimming your margaritas and two tea blends that when iced, make magical drinks for any shindig. I love this as a go-to gift for hostessing in particular, because chances are whoever’s opening that door for you also loves to spend some time in the kitchen. What’s great is that unlike a lot of pre-prepared spice blends and similar products, Epicure is really committed to crafting products that are good for you, meaning no MSG or artificial colouring / flavours, plus a careful eye on sodium and sugar levels. In addition, these kits are gluten-free, so you don’t have to stress about food allergies either. And with their new silicon steamers, it makes your meal that much healthier. The result is magnifique – no matter what’s cooking!

 

Kiss My Face Olive The Season Soap Gift SetKiss My Face ‘Olive the Season’ Pure Olive Oil Soap 3-Pack – $11.98
Soap is always a great hostess gift because more often than not, the host – whether entertaining for an evening or hosting family for a week – is using up some of their precious soaps and lotions. Kiss My Face has a special holiday-themed gift set of three of their ultra-nourishing, all-natural Olive Oil Soap bars. With just three ingredients – 86% of which is olive oil harvested from radiant orchards – it’s guaranteed to be a hit with the host’s entire family, no matter how sensitive their skin. This pint-sized package comes ready-to-gift, with a built-in gift tag and festive packaging. It’s also a great pick for any Secret Santa exchanges or as a stocking stuffer for any Kiss My Face fans.

Teeny Tiny Bakery Holiday Cookies

The Teeny Tiny Bakery Mini Cookies – $5 for a Five-Pack
Cookie chef Jackie Long should probably be considered a master at the art of torture. After all, she creates these incredible, amazing, beautiful works of art. And then you find out that they’re cookies. And they’re delicious. Do you bite in and ruin her creations? *Wipes crumbs* Um yes. But they also make showstopping gifts! The Teeny Tiny Bakery produces cookies in a range of sizes and designs, and offers up creative items like customized ‘ornament’ cookies with your monogram on them, or, to pull an example from last year, a paint-your-own ornament cookie that included edible frosting-paint and a brush so you could take part in the creation and destruction of something beautiful. Also fun? You can order 25 mini-cookies to create your own advent calendar, for just $25 + shipping. You can find The Teeny Tiny Bakery at the One of a Kind Spring Show in Toronto, but you can also contact them directly to find out how to get your paws on these almost-too-good-to-eat treats, with shipping across Canada.

Winners Sea Salt Gift SetGourmet Salt Set – $29.99 @ HomeSense
Have you ever tried cooking with gourmet salt? The results are pretty astounding. For example, I don’t eat bacon – I do however, make ‘coconut bacon’, which always drops the jaws of my friends and colleagues when I share the mere concept with them. How does one replicate the crispy, smoky goodness of bacon you ask? With smoked salt – which makes up just one of the little vials in this nifty gift set that’s perfect for hardcore foodies and experimental kitchen dabblers alike. Housed in a cute wooden rack, your host can also refill this set once they’ve gone through a favourite blend.

Parachute CoffeeParachute Coffee Subscription – $25 / Month
This one’s for all those caffeine-lovers in your life. As if it were sent from the gods above, on the first Monday of every month, Parachute Coffee delivers a box of curated beans from some of Canada’s top roasters. Inside the box, you’ll also receive a handy card giving you the scoop on where your coffee has come from, how to best prepare it and what to expect when you take that first, soul-awakening sip. It takes the guesswork out of accessing unique, special blends of coffee and should introduce you to new, well-curated roasters from across the land. You can subscribe for as little or as long as you want, and shipping and tax are included. Introduce your best friends to the service as a fun hostess gift pick, and let one of them surprise the other at Christmas with a year-long subscription.

Oil & Vinegar Dipping Set with PlateOil & Vinegar Dipping Plate – $14.99 @ Shoppers Drug Mart
At my work’s Yankee Gift Swap last year, one of the most hotly coveted items was an oil & vinegar set – and it wasn’t half as nice as this one. Laden with a rich olive oil and tangy vinegar perfect for dipping a fresh, crusty loaf of bread in, this cute set also comes with its own stand and a handy plate for serving. I love gifts like this because they can actually be used almost instantly. Bring along an artisanal baguette and I guarantee, the host or hostess will happily set this out for people to munch on while they put the finishing touches on their dinner. And any leftovers make for a great addition to the hosts’ charcuterie board on Christmas morning.

West Elm Glass DishPatch NYC Glass Box – $16 @ West Elm
I recognize that many of the gift ideas on this list are edible, so I thought it’d be nice to highlight something that can’t be consumed. Namely, this beautiful glass box created by design studio Patch NYC for West Elm. Whether the host uses it to stash spare change or dresser clutter or puts it on display filled with their favourite festive treats, it’s an affordable piece that looks super luxe and blends in with just about any decor. Consider stuffing it with mini candy canes or other holiday faves as an extra ‘sweet’ gift.

rosemary fusion bar chocolaterie bernard callebaut

Rosemary Fusion Tablette Bar – $13 @ Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut
Here’s an interesting concept: what if chocolate was simply the canvas for the creativity of a master chocolatier? After you’ve mastered the art of making a perfectly creamy, dreamy chocolate bar, your imagination can pretty much run wild – at least, that’s what the thinking appears to be behind Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut’s award-winning Rosemary Fusion bar. I held a mini-group tasting of this one and everyone was astonished at the range of flavours, starting with the brand’s signature rich chocolate, but quickly offset by an infusion of savoury rosemary and thyme, and finished up with a dusting of salty, spicy habanero sea salt. It’s the kind of thing that shouldn’t work, but does, thanks to the high quality ingredients and perfect blend of flavours that excite every last one of your taste buds. A supreme gift for the gourmand chocolate lover in your life.

    The Rosemary Fusion Tablet Bar is my favourite idea, everyone I know seems to enjoy chocolate. I might have to buy one for myself & sample it first!

  2. SandyS says:

    As a foodie, the gourmet salt set would be a welcome addition on my counter. Love them all though, tough choice.

  3. Margaret Palmer says:

    My favourite would have to be the rosemary fusion tablet the bar….chocolate is always the best, but they all look like good gift ideas.

  4. Annie Demill says:

    I’m a big fan on David’s Tea so I would choose the tea scented candle

  5. aly3360 says:

    For myself I think the best gift in this list is the gourmet salt set. I actually have a bunch of spices on my wish list this year (grains of paradise, black onion seeds, achiote) so an array of tasty salts for my cooking would be amazing. For gifting however I’d have to go with the Parachute Coffee subscription. I have a lot of coffee lovers in my life and coffee is always on my shopping list come Christmas.

  6. Sherry K says:

    The 5 Mini Cookie packs from iBakery would make super host gifts. They are very pretty. But for myself, I have to say that the Happy Herbivore Holidays & Gatherings would be a treat.

    The oil & vinegar with dipping plate is a great hostess gift particular if you bring a baguette with you as well so it can be used at the get together. The coffee subscription would be amazing for my sister in law since she loves coffee. I really like all of the ideas -it just depends on which hostess or host you are visiting.

  59. Katie says:

    I love the Happy Herbivore cookbook, but as a hostess gift, I think the Teeny Tiny Bakery cookies are just fantastic!

  60. Josh S says:

    I really like the Patch NYC Glass Box for a hostess gift idea since it’s very pretty, could be used for many different purposes, and because it’s something that most people would probably not buy for themselves. I’m also partial to the Oil & Vinegar Dipping Plate, and the Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut Rosemary Fusion Tablette Bar.
