5 Foodie Gifts by the Little Locavore

1. My Eco Can from Briers

Briers is a fun place to shop if you’re looking for gifts. I stopped by there to check out what I might like in my Christmas Stocking! This was really cool. My ECO Can. It’s a reusable biodegradable cup, that is disguised as a soda can! It is made for hot and cold beverages and is BPA free!

Briers, 2070 West 4th Ave, 604-730-0379,


2. Astounding Multi-Flavor Sandwich Cookies Joe-Joe’s at Pirate Joes

I really like visiting with Michael and Barry at Pirate Joes. They go down to Trader Joes in the US, and bring up lots of awesome goodies to sell here! I bought these cookies as a gift for some friends, who were kind enough to share them with me. There are four flavours in the box: Double Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Peppermint and Ginger. They are all sandwich cookies, then covered in varried chocolate glazes! Soooooo goooood!

3. Rainbow Trout Oven Mitt at Briers

There so many cool kitchen items at Briers. So I couldn’t pick just one! This was my second favourite item! An oven mitt shaped like a Rainbow Trout!

4. Wooden Sushi Slicing Playset at Whole Foods

Even though this is probably for kids smaller than me. I love it! I think I want to get it. A whole sushi set made from wood! They are painted to look very real, and eveb stack together with velcro.

5. The Holiday Tea Collection at David’s Tea

I really like to try all of the different teas that David’s has. This is a great set for someome in your life that loves tea! The holiday collection has sample sizes of three different teas: Santa’s Secret (Black Tea), Sleigh Ride (Fruity), and Gingerbread (Rooibos).
