Under $50 gets you further
The Bay (221 Glendale Ave. – Pen Centre) has an excellent gift guide for Men, Women and the Kids. Suggestions include brands such as Calvin Klein, Nautica, Kenneth Cole and Ralph Lauren. For the ladies, the suggestions are both thoughtful and glamorous and range from pendant necklaces, to jeans or leggings to a wool felt fedora. For the fellas, suggestions include skinny chinos and classic Levi’s plaid workshirts. The Bay at Pen Centre is about a 15 minute drive from the Westgate Village or Linwell Road apartment communities.
Give the Gift of Music
For a one of a kind Christmas experience, get tickets to the Niagara Symphony Orchestra’s (NSO) Holiday Wonderland Concert. There is a 2 for 1 offer available for the Dec 15th concert at 7:30 p.m. The performances include holiday favourites such as the Carols of the Bells and The Nutcracker Suite. The NSO is also collecting donations of non-perishable food items in support of Community Care.
Since everyone loves Christmas goodies, consider an easy-to-make yet delicious recipe like Saltine Toffee. This recipe takes 15 minutes and yields tasty results. Simply package up in a cute box or tin and gift to friends and family. If you’re not a master in the kitchen, stock up on homemade cookies, squares and cakes at a local bake sale. The Scottlea Presbyterian Church (515 Scott Street) is hosting a bake sale and lunch on Dec 15th between 11-1 p.m. Put some hot chocolate in a thermos and take the fifteen minute stroll from Panoramic Properties’ Linwell Road apartments (or about a 30 minute walk from Westgate Village). Exercise leaves room for more cookies, right?
