A Kenny Rogers Christmas.

Did you wake up this morning, take a look at your calendar, and nearly fall out of bed with the sudden realization that Christmas is in LESS than one week?  It’s okay to admit your shock – that’s how we started the day out as well.

For years, we have relied on the always-useful internet and have ordered most of our presents online.  From Shopbop to Bluefly, our friends and family received unique gifts that they otherwise wouldn’t have found on Robson Street.  That is, until this year.  November passed in a blur of event planning craziness and most of December has found us trying to recoup from this hectic pace.   Before we knew it, even Santa couldn’t have placed an order online that promised to have our gifts shipped in time.

“So what to do now?”, we asked ourselves aloud, while sitting in a mass of traffic.  With growing frustration, we turned the radio dial to the “all day Christmas music” channel, crossing our fingers that Mariah Carey would be playing.  Sadly, this wasn’t the case – Kenny Rogers was singing his classic tune about a “Home-made Christmas”.  Wait!  By golly, I think you’ve got it, Kenny!  We’ll make like a modern day KR and MAKE our presents this year!

If you found yourself in the same boat (Carol Ship?) as us, here are a few gift ideas you can whip up in a day.  We will be infusing vodka with various flavours today…look out for pictures and the ultimate “brother in law taste test” later this week!
