It’s that time of year! Many of us are spending our days running around picking up Gifts and Stocking Stuffers… and others have yet to begin their shopping.. ahem… husbands! So we thought we would help everyone out by sharing some of our favorite and unique gift ideas.

From sweet treats to skincare, tech accessories to jewels- we have got you COVERED!! Our goal is to make it a little easier to shop for those people “who have everything” or maybe even those you don’t know well enough to buy for (…hello random person whose name you drew for the office gift exchange!)

The best part? Most of these items can be found in and around Edmonton at some of our most beloved local retailers and small businesses- many of which have extended Holiday Hours!!

So without further ado- here you go!

1. Cherry Bombe- The Cookbook

Recipes & stories from 100 of the most creative and inspiring women in Food Today
It’s the first-ever cookbook from the team behind Cherry Bombe, the hit indie magazine about women and food, and the Radio Cherry Bombepodcast. Inside are 100+ recipes from some of the most interesting chefs, bakers, food stylists, pastry chefs, and creatives on the food scene today, including:
Karlie Kloss, supermodel and cookie entrepreneur
Padma Lakshmi, star of Top Chef
Chrissy Teigen, supermodel and bestselling cookbook author
Christina Tosi, chef and founder of Milk Bar

The Cherry Bombe team asked these women and others for their most meaningful recipes. The result is a beautifully styled and photographed collection that you will turn to again and again in the kitchen!
