Birthdays and Christmas dates are the big ones. But let's not forget about Mother's Day, one-year anniversaries, ten-year anniversaries, presents for the brides-to-be, presents for the wedding party, presents for the in-laws, presents for their beloved Bugsie the boston terrier, presents for the friends who you're staying with on vacation in that tropical paradise.. and we know, the list goes on. And on.
Does that not happen to you all the time?
Have you ever had someone open your present and you spot a crestfallen look on their face that they try to hide, when they realize that it must have been a re-gift from your crazy second aunt that you thought they might have actually liked.
Oops. (Thought you could swing that one, didn't you).
Let them pick it for you.
If you can be there to witness their eyes light up when they've spotted "THAT THING" they've fallen in love with, then this is actually YOUR perfect moment to shine.
Bring them to a fun outdoor market where all the goods are handmade, locally, mind you - and often one-of-a-kind gifts too... and make it fun date or family outing.
You're being extra smart, knocking out two birds with one stone - you get to enjoy the ambience, the fun, the food at a summer market and suddenly, you've just solved your gift-giving dilemma for maybe not one occasion, but two. And maybe not even for just one person, but a few.
Ladner Market features 140 craft vendors with a focus on gourmet food, home & garden products, jewellery and unique creations.
