The holiday season is upon us! Remember to budget 50 per cent more time at the mall so you can a) find parking b) navigate around the Santa photo corner c) sample Hickory Farm sausage and of course, d) find the perfect gift.

There are a lot of gifts out there so don’t shop unprepared! Check out this week’s Friday Favourites for inspiration:

Barbara from hodge:podge suggests giving original art prints from Saatchi — and we can’t think of a better idea for new homeowners. Surely, this will help them add some personality to a new space.




The holidays are all about spending time with family. For some of us, this means taking an epic VIA rail ride home or driving for hours. If you’re lucky, grandma lives nearby. Either way, Saint Elizabeth Health Care wants to hear your “Coming Home” stories. Share and you could win a $100 gift card.



Last year, I made cookies for all my friends and I was a little concerned that they wouldn’t like them. To my surprise, they all came back with stories about how they shared their cookies with friends and family. It’s inspired me to keep baking. Check out this recipe for Gluten Free Pumpkin Roll Cake from The Baking Beauties.




Last by not least, Tim from Design Maze gives us a run-down of this year’s One-of-a-Kind Christmas Show. OOAK shows are amazing for original gifts with vendors coming from all over the country.
