The Perfect Gift, Plus a Little Something Extra

It’s no secret that we send out more Gift Certificates in December than at any other time of the year.  Of course we do: they make perfect presents.  So this is the official post suggesting that you buy your loved ones the gift of an experience. Something they wouldn’t necessarily buy or do for themselves.  The gift of time away.  You get the idea.

But it’s also true that sometimes you want to hand over something a little more intimate than a piece of paper.  If that’s the case,  here are a few ideas to help you personalize your gift.

One really sweet way to present this gift would be to surprise your significant other with breakfast in bed, and slip the certificate in a rolled up napkin.  While you’re at it,  serve our signature pancakes using our secret weapon that we shared in this post.  Breakfast in bed, AND a trip away?  This is a true brownie point winner.

Next up, it is baking season, and everyone loves a tin of homemade cookies, right?  How about adding a few new ones to your repertoire.  We’ve shared a lot of recipes over the years, but these two are real stand-outs:  Chocolate filled ginger snaps  and vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies  Any way you want to package home-made cookies is a good idea.  Just don’t forget the gift certificate!

Another popular gift is  homemade hot cocoa mix in a cute glass jar festooned with holiday ribbons!  We’ve got a simple recipe that you can use.  Pair it with a mug that’s got a gift certificate rolled up in it and Wow! what a gift!

Need something that packs a bit more punch?  If you’ve ever been to the Brampton then you know that the bed-sheets we use are some of the most comfortable and luxurious to be found.  We don’t sell them, but we can tell you where to get them!  The sheets are one of the most talked about comforts that people mention when we ask about their stay.  A lovely set wrapped with a pretty ribbon and oh, look, a gift certificate too?!?!  You shouldn’t have!

Why, of course you should!  There’s plenty of time before the end of the year to put together a very special gift for that very special someone.  Give us a at the Brampton B&B call or order one online.  Someone will be very glad you did.  😉
