Christmas Gift Ideas #5

November 28th, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

We just released our fifth of six Christmas gift idea newsletters

This is the fifth of six fortnightly Christmas gift ideas series newsletters (it`s less than 4 weeks to Christmas!). I will be concentrating on items that will go quickly through the post now.

This year we have been getting some great feedback, so it is good to know that the ideas are of use.

Again, at the risk of boring you, and to remind you. We have a Stocking Fillers page on the website at Christmas Stocking Filler Gift Ideas and we have pages of gift ideas `for him` and gift ideas `for her`.

And again at the foot of this newsletter is a last posting date table. Many of the overseas dates have actually already passed and a number of deadlines occur in the next week.

To start this time I thought I would include the ornaments from Naure`s Gold. Each of these is an actual maple leaf, collected in Ontario, electroplated bronze, to give it strength and durability, and finished with a gold, copper, silver or iridescent coating. These pieces make lovely oraments and brooches, but at this time of year are great for the christmas tree. They come gift-boxed…

The second idea, is the popular work from the First Nation Silver Eagles studio. Nancy Dawson, Chance Gesinghaus and Vincent Henson produce some really nice pieces. I particularly like the meaning behind the emotions necklace.

An idea `for her`, is the inexpensive but contemporary and bright line from Exquisite Aluminum Jewellery. With these, as each one is different, we send you a photo of the current ones in your selected colour, for you to choose your piece.

As it is the World Cup at Lake Louise this weekend I thought some classic ski images from the Bruno Engler archive black and white photography collection would be appropriate. I have included his `coffee table book`. It is currently on 50% off, making it a great gift for him or her.

Finally, we have some great news for anyone that missed Mark Sharp’s limited edition print `The Start House`, appropriately enough, depicting the start house at the Lake Louise Downhill. Mark has released his seven Artist’s Proof prints. Often Artist Proof pieces go for a higher price but Mark has elected to let them go at the same price a the main run. These make for a spectacular gift. Also, after much demand, Mark has just released a paper giclee edition of the piece Glacial Lake.

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 (some of which have already passed!), for those who may want to ship overseas
