In need of a gift for your food-focused friend? A few summery ideas for you…
How about a very portable Bucket BBQ for s’more making or weenie roasting on your patio? This 33 cm high steel invention has a stylish removable wood handle and is fueled by coal. Paired with a bag of locally made marshmallows from Pink Spatula, Butter Baked Goods or Archimallows, this really is a terrific gift.
Gift idea number two is beautiful, locally handmade ceramics from G Ceramic and Co.
With a focus on porcelain, Gabrielle Burke’s bowls, mugs and serving platters are showstoppers with their edgy gold geometric patterns and their delicate depictions of nature. I treasure mine.
This talented local artisan is based in South Surrey but you can shop for her products on etsy or visit her Vancouver retailers (Bird on a Wire and Fairmont Pacific Rim, to name a few). She also hosts one-on-one sessions in her studio and garden parties in the summer. Could be a fun Bachelorette party?
