Holiday Season 2023

Tuesday Dec 05th, 2023


As the holiday season approaches it’s a great time to think about spending time with family & friends. We’ve got some ideas about how to have a great time.

Trying to spend less money this holiday season?
There are lots of fun ways to make the holidays less about gifts and more about spending time together.
🎅🏼Secret Santa: Everyone picking a name and buying one gift instead of everyone buying for everyone.
🎅🏼An event: Getting together as a group to go ice-skating, going caroling, partaking in a tree lighting ceremony are all fun things you can do as a group.
🎅🏼Plan a cookie exchange: It’s a great way to get together with friends or neighbours and also guarantees you have a fantastic assortment of holiday baking.
Feeling like the holidays are a bit too commercial?
Spend some time with your family thinking about how you can help someone else enjoy the holidays will not only help them but it will make you feel good too.
🎁Donate to a toy drive. 
🎁Volunteer at the local seniors residence.
🎁Give to a local food bank.
There are lots of ways you can help over the holidays and year round.
Gathering with friends & family?
Make sure you’ve got a plan to get home safely from your holiday get-togethers. It’s important to establish who the designated driver is beforehand. If everyone wants to raise a glass of cheer, taking an Uber is a great option. Knowing how to get home using public transit can not only keep everyone safe but it can save you money too.

Here are some great hostess gift ideas.
Not only do they have some tradition behind them, you can pick all of these gifts up from small local businesses and help support our communities this holiday season.
Candles are a great hostess gift any time but have a special meaning during the holiday season.
Plants are a lovely gift that reminds your hostess that you appreciated their invitation and it can be enjoyed for years to come (depending on how green the hostesses thumb is).
Chocolates are a big part of the holiday season. Who doesn’t think of a favourite aunt who always sent a box of a special box of chocolates for the whole family to enjoy as part of the holiday package?

There is nothing better than being able to share the holiday season with friends and family.
We wish you all the best this holiday season.
