Christmas Gift Ideas #3

We just released our latest newsletter http://aboutcanada.ca/store.html?news=1&returnNews=58#returnNews.
:-

I am amazed that we are already at the third of six fortnightly Christmas gift ideas series newsletters (it`s less than 8 weeks to Christmas!).

I hope you enjoy the latest selection, and thank you for the great feedback – it is satisfying to know the ideas are enjoyed. This weekend coming is Thanksgiving in the States so to all of the readers south of the border may I wish you a happy Thanksgiving.

To remind you. We have a Stocking Fillers page on the website at http://aboutcanada.ca/store.html?listSpecial=7&lookFor=StockingFiller%27s%20Day%20Gift%20Ideas copy and paste the link if clicking doesn`t work for you.

We also have pages of gift ideas `for him` and gift ideas `for her`.

Again at the foot of this newsletter is a last posting date table. Quite a few dates have actually already passed.

I decided to start this time with a line that is popular with both him and her, in the form the CP Rail Arvhive images. We have a really big version of the green one on the wall in store to see if people are interested one that large (23 x 34 inches), let me know if you are curious in knowing more.

The second idea, is the popular line of metal wall art from Michael`s Metal. The system can have difficulty calculating the shipping on these, so just call for an exact figure.

Finally, another larger xmas gift idea. As the evenings turn colder and winter draws near. A lovely Canadiana idea is the range of Canadian made throws from Alkaso. These make a lovely cabin style gift.

So that brings this newsletter to a close, I hope you enjoyed it.

Don`t forget that you can use our wish list function. Each product has a “Make a wish list” button. Use it to let your family and friends know what you would like.

If you have any questions or if there is anything that you would like to see us cover, just let me know.

As mentioned above. The following is the Canada Post information on last post dates for Christmas 2014 (for those who may want to ship overseas, as you can see from the red quite a few have now passed!)
