Holiday Gift Guide: Something for Everyone

Anna Crooke Photography

 

Monday we headed off to The One of a Kind Show at the Enercare Centre. Boasting over 800 Canadian designers (many of them local), the show was a bit overwhelming. We took our time, a full day in fact, weaving up and down the rows to take it all in.

The One of a Kind Show is the type of event we could easily spend thousands of dollars at. There are so many fantastic and unique items, all well-made and designed, and all in one convenient spot. If you haven’t been before, you need to add this to your event list.

 

 

We’ve compiled a gift guide that will satisfy everyone on your list. You can go to the One of a Kind Show before it closes on December 6th, or conveniently shop online.
