Last week, I had a chance to visit the One of a Kind Show and Sale for a lovely media breakfast and preview. Today, I’ll be taking one of the family back for a little afternoon Christmas shopping for teachers and friends. Since I’ve already been, I’ll be steering them towards my top 10 picks from #OOAKX16.
The Lunchbox Season’s Top 10 Gifts from the One of a Kind Show and Sale 2016, Christmas, #OOAKX16
In addition to her amazing 2017 Calendar Tea Towels, Avril Loreti now offers wonderful patterned handkerchiefs! As I’m a huge fan of handkerchiefs, at least three of these will be going in my stocking this year. Check out Avril Loreti in Booth N08 at the One of a Kind Show or online. [Oh, and she has gorgeou baby blankets, too!]
A new Tea Towel Calendar that had me wowed [and that’s also going into a stocking near me!] is the Keephouse 2017 Calendar Tea Towel. The nautical feel of this Maritmes-inspired towel blows my mind. Their roller-towels are also going to make great housewarming gifts for friends of ours! Check them out at Booth X29 at the One of a Kind Show or online.
As you well know from last year’s post, we are Narwhal obsessed. This Baltic Club Narwhals Notebook is going directly into a certain young lady’s stocking. The Narwhals Garland and Narwhal Lapel Pin are also out of this world. Check them at at Booth U24 at the One of a Kind Show or online.
A very special Narwhal pin caught our eye and made a certain person’s heart flutter at Leikey, Booth X45 at the One of a Kind Show and Sale.
For all of those STEAM teachers who make our kids believe that they, too, have super powers, The Chemist Tree, Booth B37 and online, has notebooks, cards, pins, prints, tote bags, and magnets with hand-drawn images of the chemical structure of everything from Woman in Science to a garland of mistletoe. So much sciencing! So little time!
I’m sending my bestie this Old Fashioned Cocktail Christmas Card by Made in Brockton Village. I am also smitten with their retro-Canadian-winter-inspired Gondola Christmas Card! Look for Made in BV at Booth Z23 at the One of a Kind Show and Sale and in their Etsy shop.
Blink, The Really Cool Chocolate Bark Company, offers amazing sheets of chocolate that will make your heart sing! Our favourite is the Ginger bark. But, we are also taken with the new Limoncello flavour! Find them at the One of a Kind Show in Booth G52 and online.
For the mixer of drinks, from a flavoured plain soda to a complicated cocktail, Forbes’ Wild Foods’ Wild Rose Petal Syrup is the perfect bagatelle. I’ve also been told you can pour this over yogurt. Yippee! This will be a great hostess gift for holiday parties in the coming months! Find them online and in Booth F47 at the One of a Kind Show and Sale.
There are several newborns on board and expected among family and friends in 2017! We are absolutely in love with the fantastic onesies offered by Mini Souls. They can be found in Booth A39 at the One of a Kind Show and, afterward, in their Etsy shop.
#Squadgoals : acquire one of these amazing Black and White Salt and Pepper Anni Large Backpacks by Eleven Thirty Shop online or in Booth N46 at the One of a Kind Show and Sale.
The One of a Kind Show and Sale runs from November 24 to December 4, 2016, at the Enercare Centre, Exhibition Place, Toronto. Hours are Weekdays & Saturdays 10am-9pm and Sundays 10am-6pm. There is also a special late night shop this Thursday, December 1st, 10am-11pm.
