Canadiana Gifts

A few weeks ago, my fellow H&H editors and I attended a flurry of holiday product previews — get it? Flurry! Even though I’ve been working here for 11 years, it still blows me away how far in advance we work. Christmas in July?!?! One of the holiday previews was held at the Burroughes Building around the corner from our offices, hosted by Rock-It Promotions. There were a handful of vendors (Drake General Store, Electrolux, Mini Mioche, PC Home & Everyday Essentials, and more) showing off their goods for the coming season. Here’s a sneak peek at what the Drake General Store is bringing out this holiday season, and stay tuned for what the other vendors were showing off in my upcoming blog posts.

Here’s my colleague Michael Penney checking out a beautifully illustrated calendar.

Every home should have a MacAusland blanket from P.E.I. or a cosy Pendleton blanket.

And I loved these Red Cedar incense cones — they smelled sooooo good!
