Make a memorable impression with these top 5 gifts that are sure to delight your hostess, brought to you by the expert marketing team at CastleCS.
Olive oil is essential in any kitchen so for a gift that will keep on giving, purchase a bottle of authentic olive oil from a deli store – Minerva’s Mediterranean Deli on Broadway, Santa Barbara on Commercial and Cioffi Deli in Burnaby all have a great olive oil selection. We recommend wrapping it with a colourful bow and pairing it with a beautiful handwritten note for the perfect touch.
High-quality organic maple syrup can be found at Choices Market (with locations in Burnaby, Vancouver, Kitsilano, Surrey and Kelowna, there’s sure to be one near you). It’s Canadian, it’s fantastic and you’ll be well remembered for your thoughtful gift with every delicious pancake bite. Maple syrup is fabulous in chai masala too, so pair your maple syrup with chai purchased online from Chai Direct or Victoria Teas and Coffee.
Gourmet Chocolates and Truffles
For a gift that’s sure to please, we recommend the Luxury Holiday Treats from zChocolat. They’re fully customizable gifts – you can engrave the box with a logo, name or photo, choose your selection of handmade chocolates and truffles, and commemorate the occasion with a plaque for your hostess. It’s perfection.
If your hostess is a reading enthusiast, buy her a beautiful book from a bookstore near you (we love the Book Warehouse) or online at the Book Depository. Choose a book that speaks to your hostess – home decor, art and illustrations and photography tomes are all great choices for the artistically-minded hostess.
Speciality Cake and Treats
For the sweetest touch, pick up or have delivered a Christmas Truffle Tree from Thomas Haas in North Vancouver or Kitsilano. It’s a new twist on the traditional holiday cake, with chocolate wafer layers and an assortment of handmade truffles that everyone’s sure to enjoy.
