What are 3 items you’re coveting this Holiday season?

1.The Holiday Onesie - I love this print!!
2.Oswald the Yeti Plush Toy.
3. Our badass Menorah / Hexagon Brass Candlesticks.

#1 item you’re gifting this year? Who is the lucky giftee?

I bought Macho man + Elizabeth French Terry Robes for my whole family this year - with a little custom embroidery courtesy of yours truly. Shhhh, don't spill the beans!

What’s your favourite Holiday tradition?

Watching National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation with the fam on boxing day, eating what’s left of the Christmas cookies.

What’s the best gift you’ve ever received? Why?

A dog! Well… I haven’t exactly received a dog as a gift before, but a girl can dream. It will always be the best possible present.

What’s the worst/funniest gift you’ve ever received?

Pretty much anything from my dad – he thinks re-gifting corporate gifts is just as good a finding a real gift. Hence why I own the entire stationary kit – pens, pencils, notebook, desk calendar and clock - from Fidelity Investments.

Fave Holiday tune?

Tied for first: Mele Kalikimaka – Bing Crosby & The Drifter’s “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas.”

Mittens or gloves?


Hot cocoa or eggnog? Spiked with…?

Eggnog - spiked with rum :)

MVP at your family Holiday dinner? Why?

My 2 year old niece, Penny. She’s the MVP at any family occasion. She threw this one down at Thanksgiving, “What’s a chicken’s favourite vegetable? Bok choi!”
