Sweet treats

Indulge their great sense of taste

P

ecans and cupcakes and gummy bears, oh my! For those with a sweet tooth, Christmas is the time of year when visions of sugar plums and other sinfully delicious confections dance in their heads. ‘Tis also the season to forget about calories and indulge your friends and family members with a box of their favourite chocolates, cakes or candies. From mom ‘n’ pop bakeries to a world-class chocolate store and oldEnglish candy shop, treats for the sugar momma or poppa on your list abound on the Peninsula. Over at Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut there are plenty of guilty pleasures that will satisfy any choc-oholic’s cravings.

chocolates with fruit, nut and ganache fillings. Sweet Escape is a new hot spot for the sweet tooth as it carries a wide range of sinful sweets

from traditional favourites of yesteryear like licorice pipes and salt water taffy to velvety smooth delights that melt in your mouth and sensational sours and fizzies that will blow your mind. With its nostalgic oldEnglish style setup and whimsical charm, it’s a feast for all your senses. But be warned, says Eva Buller-Kleefman, who owns the store with husband Dan and daughter Jazzie – you’ll turn into a big kid the second you step inside the colourful candy cornucopia. “It tends to bring out the child in everyone,” said Buller-Kleefman of the candy store that opened its doors last fall. “We recently had a 94-year-old woman who came in and her eyes lit up when she saw that we had licorice pipes – the same candy she loved as a child. We get that a lot, everyone who comes in leaves happy – it’s impossible not to.” For a feast for the eyes and the soul, Buller-Kleefman recommends Rogers’ Chocolates’ six piece milk and dark assortment chocolates, delicious confections that come beautifully packaged in a tin painted by a local artist. Another local treat, she says is sure impress is the Ice Wine Truffles. Rogers Chocolates has partnered with Ganton and Larsen Prospect Winery to create these decadent delicacies – the perfect marriage of gourmet chocolate ganache, paired with smooth B.C. icewine. And if chocolate doesn’t tickle their taste buds, a gift � see page 5

� from page 3 that would make any sweet tooth happy is a custom-made candy bouquet or candy wreath. “You can choose whatever candy you want and we’ll turn it into a beautiful, one-of-a-kind gift,” said Buller-Kleefman who just finished making a Watkins Toffee wreath. At Hillcrest Bakery owner Vanessa Heywood has been busy filling holiday orders, such as their festive fruit cake. “This is one fruit cake that actually gets eaten,” said Heywood of the popular goodie made from scratch the same way since 1972. “We do random-size pieces iced with or without our own marzipan, which is made in the store. Both are made with lots of fruit and raisins.” For the kiddies, Heywood suggests Hillcrest Bakery’s iced cookies, which come in a variety of festive shapes such Christmas trees, snowflakes as belles.

“These cookies are made from scratch, decorated by hand with fondant icing and royal icing in the bakery by Robyn and myself. They make great gifts for adults too as they are as good to eat as they are to look at.” And what’s their most famous goodie of all? Even Rudolph himself would have to say it’s their mince tarts. “These make really popular hostess gifts,” said Heywood. Heywood. “They come in a box of six or can be purchased individually.” Another hot spot worth checking out is Notti Biscotti. The unique bakery uses all natural ingredients, without preservatives and uses only the best chocolate. Owner Shelley Quesnel has given each of her exotic crispy creations a fun, cheeky name like her Coco Loco, Wicked Will and Fireman’s pole.

Sharing holiday cheer Salvation Army collects gifts for festive hampers

W

ith time running out to finish last-minute shopping, stress can come in many forms – long lines, grouchy shoppers and unavailable parking. But for many, buying presents is the least of their worries. For some, it is not even an option. There are needy families on the Peninsula who simply can’t afford to place any gifts under the tree. That’s why the Salvation Army in White Rock is urging people to help those in need have a memorable holiday season. To help spread Christmas cheer, Sally Ann volunteers are looking for donations from the community of newly bought presents or monetary donations to fill their Christmas hampers, said Naomi Dalley, corps officer of the WR Salvation Army. “At this point (as of Dec. 5) we have 70 families, and upwards of 150 children registered – a number we are expecting to climb in the next week or so,” said Dalley, who noted a slight increase this year, possibly a result of the recession. “We’re definitely seeing a lot of different faces this year.” While clients of the Salvation Army come from all walks of life, Dalley said many don’t realize this group includes seniors on fixed incomes, the working poor and families where one or both parents have been laid off. “It’s no longer just the typical single female with one or more children who needs a helping hand… there really is no one definition of what a family-services client looks like. Even by looking at clients, you can’t necessarily tell they are in need.” In assembling the hampers, Dalley said, she and her team of volunteers try their best to fill them with gifts for the children and their parents that will make their day memorable. “It’s about putting together something that will bring each child that sense of magic that everyone wants on Christmas Day.” Every year, the community has stepped up to the plate to support the Salvation Army holiday hamper program, said Dalley. And she predicts this year will be no exception.

My only concern at present is meeting the needs of different categories, such as teenagers. They can be harder to buy for,” said Dalley, noting that video games, chapter books, popular music, high-tech gadgets, cosmetics, and DVDs are always appreciated for that age group. Gift ideas for children and younger people could include sports equipment, toys, CDs, toiletries, puzzles, or action figures.

For older people, donations of photo frames, ornaments, jewelry, chocolates, perfumes or toiletries are always welcome. Donations for the holiday hampers be dropped off at the

Gifts ideas for the gal who has it all

Diamonds aren't her only best friend

T

he final days of holiday shopping have crept up on us; and the shopping malls are a zoo and parking lots packed. But unless you want to disappoint the special lady on your list, now is the time to chin up and face the merry madness. Fellas, we know it can be overwhelming to pick out the perfect gift for your wife or girlfriend, especially when your better half says “just surprise me.” That’s why we’ve scoured the shops high and low for the latest must-have items to help make your Christmas morning together one she’ll remember.

Warren Boutique is your one-stop-shop for fashion forward accessories, such as their Free People toques and knee socks.

Jewelry is always huge this time of year, and makes a great last-minute gift that will be cherished for years to come. Luckily, you don't have to break the bank for a little bling that will make her heart sing. Heart’s Desire is one of White Rock’s best-kept secrets for stunning handmade costume jewelry. Not only is this one-of-a-kind jewelry pleasing to the eye, it's easy on the wallet. With prices ranging from $6 to $100 (around $35 for a complete set), you’re sure to find something to put a sparkle in her eye and around her neck. Not sure whether she’ll like gold, silver, turquoise or pearls? Owner/jewelry designer Valerie Crump said she can help you find the right pieces to suit your lady's taste and your budget. “We know it can be a little overwhelming so we make it very comfortable for the men,” she said. “We want to sell people stuff they are going to wear and enjoy rather than just make a sale.” In addition to all that glitters, most women love soft, luxurious fabrics and fashion-forward accessories. Over at Warren Boutique, you’ll find a selection of both. With Jack Frost nipping at our necks, owner Arrianne Morgan said their Italian linen Love Quote scarves are one of their hottest selllers. “These are very soft and come in some beautiful colours – each has a 'love quote' on it,” she said noting that 10 per cent of sales go to an international children’s charity. Morgan suggests pairing the scarf with a Free People slouch tuque. “This is the new way to wear a tuque,” she said.

Below, Arianne Morgan with Love Quote scarves. “Slouch the extra fabric to the back to reduce hat head.” Free People also makes over-the-knee socks to keep her feet toasty and stylish. "They look great with boots and a sweater dress or over skinny jeans with tall boots," said Morgan. Another popular pick, according to Morgan is their Hanky Panky underwear – a favourite of talk-show host Kelly Ripa. “These are super comfy and sexy. If she isn’t already addicted she will be.”

is the season to raise your glass with loved ones and toast family and friendship. Whether you’re looking for a bottle of bubbly to celebrate with guests or the perfect red or white to serve with Christmas dinner, the opportunity for wine lovers to quench their thirst abounds on the Peninsula. Everything Wine Inc. is your one-stop-shop for a large selection of delicious vino from all over the world as well as a variety of local varieties. For the wine connoisseur on your list who has been especially deserving this year, Rob Carras of Everything Wine recommends Duckhorn Napa’s 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon for $87.99. “Aromas of ripe currant, spearmint, marzipan and tobacco lead to intense flavours of blackberry and black cherry, all supported by a subtle framework of French oak, which adds nuance,

Carras suggests the Chalone Vineyard Estate Grown 2008 Chardonnay, which sells for $28.99. “This wine is very burgundian, with complex melon, fig, tangerine and

light toasty oak, full-bodied, deep and concentrated, yet light on its feet.” Perfect for a cold winter night by the fire with friends and family is Everything Wine’s exclusive 2007 Perrin & Fils Cotes Du Rhone Villages for $23.99 Made up of 50 per cent grenache and 50 per cent

syrah, its gorgeous plum and black cherry aromas and flavours with enticing spice will tickle your taste buds. “This is the perfect red wine for your turkey dinner or as a gift for the host,” said Carras. “It will cellar for the next seven years.” Another wine perfect for the holidays, according to Carras, is the Blue Mountain Vineyard Brut, which sells for $29.99. “The Brut Gold Label has a fine mousse, with lemon and toasty character on the nose and across the palate, with a crisp lemon finish,” he said, noting that the blend is made up of 47 per cent pinot noir, 47 per cent chardonnay and six per cent pinot gris. Tinhorn Creek Gewurztraminer 2009 for $18.99 is another popular pick at Everything Wine for its beautiful nose of tropical fruits, lychee and flowers. “This wine is perfectly balanced with a little bit

of sweetness that will compliment both turkey and ham,” said Carras. In addition to their selection of everyday, affordable wine, Everything Wine carries a selection of big ticket bottles, such as the 2005 Chateau Mouton Rothschild, which sells for a whopping $1099.99. “This is definitely the Ferrari of wines,” said Carras of the bottle ripe with currants, berries and minerals with a light toasted oak on the nose. “It’s full-bodied and very refined with lots of silky tannins and a long finish.” Another hot spot to find the perfect bottle of wine is Mud Bay Wines. Their inventory of wines consists of more than 600 varieties of B.C. wine along with glassware, decanters, wine aerators, cork screws, cookbooks, wine books, cheese, savoury food items, crackers, chocolates, wine bags, gift baskets, gift certificates and more for the wine lover on your list.

as ever, Ayreborn also has a number of docks and speakers to choose from. A hot-ticket item from Yamaha is a desktop iPod dock with speakers built in and clock radio. "At just $299, they're selling pretty fast," said Ayrebon of the dock, rated as the ultimate iPod sterio by several magazines. With more people getting into vinyl, record players have made a huge comeback, according to Ayres, who recommends the Music Hall mmf 2.2 limited-edition turntable, on sale until Dec. 23 for $499. "This is a great buy as it has a two-speed belt-driven audiophile turntable with special Ferarri red plinth at a budget price." While a lot of men love the thrill of the hunt, that’s

not always the case when it comes to shopping for clothes. As long as you stay true to their personal style, a gift of fashion is always appreciated. Extreme Clothing has a huge selection of popular skate, surf and snowboard apparel, including hoodies, t-shirts, jackets, jeans and shoes. And if clothes won't make the cut, a great gift idea that will have him looking and feeling his best is a gift certificate for a Hot Towel Shave and Facial at Menzone in South Surrey. Hot towels, followed by a traditional shave will start this indulgence, joined with a cleanse, exfoliation, extractions (if needed), masque and eye treatment. Next he’ll be soothed by � see page 16

Lois Grout of Shoppers Home Health takes a break to test a few gift ideas for seniors, such as their lift lounge chair and step machine.

Thoughtful gifts for grandma and grandpa

T

he holiday shopping season has returned, and legions of holiday shoppers are heading for the mall to hunt for that perfect gift. When it comes to Christmas shopping lists, many friends and family members are a breeze to shop for. Is there an ardent sports fan in the family? Tickets to a ballgame will likely be a home run. Need to find something for the family film buff? A few of his or her favourite DVDs should suffice. But as easy as some people are to shop for, there’s always a person or two who’s nearly impossible to find something for. One group that many people find particularly difficult to shop for is the young at heart. Unlike kids who would enjoy the

newest video game or a gadgetcrazy adult who just wants the latest must-have appliance, senior citizens are often more difficult to shop for. That might be due in part to seniors living on fixed-incomes or seniors who might no longer be physically capable of participating in their favourite activities. However, there are gift ideas that can still strike a chord with grandma or grandpa and ensure their holiday is just as enjoyable as everyone’s. • Gift of mobility/convenience Over at Shoppers Home Health, one will find a variety of gifts for the elderly grandparent to assist him/her in their day-to-day living.

� see page 23


Peace Arch News LAST MINUTE GIFT GUIDE, Wednesday, December 15, 2010 - 23

Mobility aids, night out sure to please seniors � from page 22 For group gifts (for example when several family members would like to go together on the purchase) popular options include lift chairs (multi-positional chairs that help a person sit, stand, recline), or bath lifts (that sit in a bathtub with options to lower, lift and recline a person in the bathtub). Both use a convenient hand control to manipulate them and range in price from around $799.99 to $1699.99, depending on style and model chosen. For smaller items, hot gift items at Shoppers Home Health include a swivel seat and handi-bar combo set called Automobility Solution (on sale for Christmas for $39.99) that aids in making an easier transition getting in and out of a vehicle; Bed Buddies – warming foot booties and mittens with aromatherapy, which can be heated in a microwave to warm and sooth hands and feet (there is a cozy shoulder cape model too). For travellers, there are the suction-cup grab bars (they can be thrown in a suitcase for the cottage,

relative visit, cruise, snow birds) to provide safety wherever you are. These run $29.99 to $169.99 each depending on the size, style and brand chosen. There are also a great variety of stocking stuffers in the independent needs section such as elastic shoe laces, button-holer, reachers, sockaids (to pull on socks), extra-long shoe horns, jar openers and more. • Give a night out on the town. Many seniors live on fixed incomes, which greatly reduces the amount of money they have available for nights out. That can make a night out on the town especially meaningful. Include dinner at Deluxe Restaurant and theatre tickets for an upcoming play at the Coast Capital Playhouse. Include yourself in the night’s festivities if you haven’t been able to spend much time with Mom and Dad or grandma and grandpa lately. For seniors, a special night out on the town with loved ones is likely to be far more memorable than you might think.

The gift that lasts a Lifetime!

Presents for pets a growing trend Brian Giebelhaus photos

Popular gift ideas for your pampered pooch range from traditional to the avant-garde

T

here’s no doubt that pets bring unconditional love and happiness into the lives of their owners. Whether it’s a cat, dog, goldfish or hamster, from the time you bring it home, they are truly a member of the family. That’s why many will hang Fido and Fluffy’s stockings on the fireplace and even leave a few treats for their furry friends under the tree. The Luxe Dog Boutique and Salon opened two years ago, specializing in goodies and grooming services for dogs. For the little doggie on your list, Luxe Dog’s chaise lounge bed is the ultimate in luxury. Made in the U.S., these satin and velour beds come in pink or blue with a removable pillow. Luxe also offers a wide range of collars, leashes and harnesses in varying prices, from cheap and cheerful to elegant and moderately

Sophie tests out the princess chaise lounge at Luxe. expensive. Whether it's for the discriminating diva or the rough-and-ready rover, there’s something for every pup. The Buddy Belt is Luxe Dog’s most popular item in the harness category.

Its unique patented design reduces stress on the pet’s neck and is easy to use. Made in Canada, these harnesses are very fashionable and highly functional. For the chic canine, Luxe

Dog carries a selection of doggone adorable outfits such as rain jackets, handknit sweaters, parkas, evening dresses, boots and mittens that will have him or her the bark of the town. A gift sure to please the dog owner as well as their precious pooch is a trip to Luxe’s salon for their bath or full groom special. South Point Pet Hospital is another popular destination to find gifts for the pampered pet and their owners. In addition to its fullservice veterinary hospital – which provides all aspects of veterinary care –South Point Pet also offers luxury vacation pet boarding, a you/bath, we/bath facility and premium pet food, toys and accessories. For those overwhelmed by the selection, a gift certificate for pet owners is always a safe bet, as it can be used towards merchandise or any service, including medical exams.

Raising hope 'Tis the season for goodwill for all, including our four-legged furry friends. Until the end of December, South Point Pet Hospital, located at 2828 152 St., will be collecting donations for three local rescues that are all run by volunteers – HugABull, Little Paws and Katie’s Place. The public can help these rescues by coming into South Point Pet Hospital and purchasing (by donation) a dog bone that will be displayed in the clinic over the holiday season. All donations will be matched by South Point Pet Hospital. The local vet is also collecting contributions for their Christmas hampers for the rescues, which are always in need of items such as food, leashes, crates, toys, blankets, beds and harnesses.

Plenty of gifts to delight the globetrotter

F

or those with globetrotters on their holiday gift list, finding the right travel-related gift can make even the longest of layovers a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of airports, security and long baggage claim lineups. Going Places has everything you need and more for anyone who has been bitten by the travel bug. Owner Sheila Way offers the following ideas to gifters looking to make their loved one’s travels less troublesome: • Help friends and family protect their valuables. Luggage often gets battered and bruised when travelling, and business travellers typically go through luggage more quickly than most. But luggage doesn’t have to take such a beating, no matter how hectic a business traveller’s schedule may be. For the on-the-go business pro, check out Going Places’ Verb Collection of brief cases from Briggs & Riley. Made from heavyduty nylon with contrast colour stitching, this line features on-thego organization: organizer with padded pockets for gear, padded

laptop compartments, and multiple pockets, zippers and holders. When it comes to luggage, go light and get going with the Transcend Line, also by Briggs & Riley. Stylish, relaxed, and eminently packable, this luggage adapts to any destination. The collection-wide features include ergonomic TPR-covered zippers with soft rubber grip for easy gliding; neoprene handles for a comfortable grip and easy carrying; and magnetic luggage tag that keeps personal info out of sight. Both the Transcend Duffels and Uprights sport wheels with oil-infused bushing for quiet, easy motion, and with durable cushioned wheel exterior for protection. • Go with a gift card. Gift cards remain an ideal fallback option for gift-givers who are puzzled about what to get that one stickler on their holiday list every year. However, as impersonal as gift cards may seem to some, business and recreational travellers often welcome gift cards with open arms, especially if the cards are from Going Places.

Ideal gifts for the expectant mom W

hen it comes to shopping for the mother-to-be, many shoppers look for presents with only baby in mind. But with all of the physical and hormonal changes pregnant women undergo, Christmas is the perfect time to give them some attention too. While wine is definitely out of the question, there are plenty of unique gift ideas sure to please the expectant mom. Help the mom-to-be on your list keep up her healthy, radiant glow with a trip to the spa. Many

day spas, including Casbah Day Spa, offer specialty packages geared towards the expectant mom. For skin as soft as a baby’s bottom, Casbah’s Smoothie treatment is a necessity for delicate skin undergoing the changes of pregnancy. This full-body treatment includes a head-to-toe cream pumice body exfoliation, followed by a luxurious hydrating lotion application. Casbah’s Yummy Mummy package is also sure to bring welcome relief for her changing body, stresses and strains. The 40-minute Free Loader Massage and their signature Casablanca Pedicure with added warm stone foot and leg massage will leave her feeling rejuvenated and relaxed. Another little bundle of joy sure to delight the expectant mom is a copy of The Gourmet Pregnancy Cookbook by Leah Douglas, available at Baby Cheeks.

Fabulous finds for the fitness fan Presents sure to get their adrenaline pumping

I

f someone you know spends more time at the gym than at home and would rather head out on a rainy cold morning to jog than sleep in, you know you’ve got a fitness fanatic on your giving list. Not sure where to shop or what gifts will get your loved one’s endorphins flowing and heart pumping? Don’t fret. We’ve done all the heavy searching so you don’t have to break a sweat. The gift of a better body, health and vitality is one of the most valuable things you could ever give. A gym membership is a terrific gift for anyone on your list who will know and appreciate its true value. Sandcastle Fitness is changing the way people think about fitness clubs, with an emphasis on a warm, welcoming environment for people of all ages and fitness levels. The owners, management and staff know the importance of maintaining a small-town feel and non-intimidating atmosphere, and go the extra mile to get to know their members by name. What sets Sandcastle Fitness apart from other gyms is their no- pressure and no-commitment policy – members pay on a monthly basis, and there are no locked-in contracts. A popular gift idea is a one-

or three-month membership to Sandcastle Fitness so your loved one can see if the gym is the right fit. The co-ed club with a ladiesonly section offers a variety of group fitness classes, including step, pilates, yoga, and Johnny G Spin (certified), an indoor cycling program and child minding. For the gal on your list who has lots of drive to stay fit, but lacks the time, a membership to the 30-Minute Hit may be just the ticket. The effective 30-minute workout was created to accommodate the busy lives of modern day women, using challenging circuit techniques taken from boxing, kickboxing, general self defense and core stability training. And with membership, women receive a pair of free boxing gloves. Owner Yossi Shalevich says there’s no need to worry if you have never boxed before or if you are new to core work, as this effective workout is for every woman regardless of age or her physical shape. And if the fitness fan on your list would rather work out in the comforts of their own home, Canadian Tire has everything they'll need to set up their own exercise

And if this year's early drop in temperature and appearance of snowflakes are any indication of what’s in store for the next few months, it’s going to be a long winter ahead. But that’s not likely to deter the fitness fan from jogging with Jack Frost. A gift that is sure to get a lot of use during the snow spell is YakTrax – an effective winter footwear traction device. Simply slide over your shoes for instant confidence and safety in snowy or icy walking conditions. Another great gift selling out fast at Peninsula Runners is the Garmin Forerunner 405 watch. This GPS-enabled sport watch tracks your training, then wirelessly sends your data to your computer. The ultimate in training technology, its sleek design features a touch bezel that lets you quickly scroll and select features on the run. With Forerunner 405 you can share your locations, advanced workouts and courses wirelessly with other Forerunner 405 users. Now you can send your favourite workout to your buddy to try, or compete against a friend's recorded course.
