holiday round up : stocking stuffers

Whether you are doing a secret santa or looking for some last minute gifts, Mama’s got you covered. Here’s my round up of local and not-so-local favourites. These are all tried, tested and true and by no means sponsored or endorsed by the companies I’m recommending. Just sometimes we get tired of the usual Purdy’s hedgehogs and scented candles.

PICOT COLLECTIVE honey tobacco travel candle - yeah yeah, I was just smack talking candles, but this one is exquisite!
