As always, what made Christmas special was the company I kept, but I had a great time flexing my domestic muscles and getting into the spirit.
The best part is, all these gift ideas will translate beautifully into Mother's Day gifts and you still have plenty of time!

One of my favourite experiences is seeing Toronto through the art of others. Offer me a book, a song, or any piece of visual
art that shows me or reminds me of Toronto and I feel a little extra attraction to it. If I can’t have Toronto, though, give me a place I’ve visited.
I will never forget the feeling of punctuating a Cape Breton road trip with
Fall on your Knees, or of reading Bag of Bones in a hotel room in Maine.
I visited Athens for less than 2 weeks in the summer of 2007, but when I read The Green Shore
by Natalie Bakopoulos I felt the same thrill, the same sense of burrowing just a little deeper into the story, of existing within it. I didn’t have
to imagine the view from Lykavittos Hill or the feeling of the warm breeze on an evening in Athens, it was all right there, vivid in my memories.
