There’s still time for some small last minute gifts. Here are a few sqm ideas to help you tick those last few boxes on that list.

Some homemade sweet treats are always appreciated… especially by those who are cooking and baking challenged. Use the search bar right at the top to access simplequietmodern recipes for Shortbreads, Maple Glazed Walnuts or Bourbon Balls for starters. Photo: gp

Potted white Helebores bring an unexpected freshness that will charm now, on the Solstice, Christmas and through to the New Year. Being able to plant it in the garden once winter breaks is an added bonus. Photo: gp

The holiday fragrance of cinnamon and fir poured into a reusable Heath Red Suede Cup. Once the candle is gone this gift keeps on giving…as a teacup or small vase. Photo: https://www. a .com/products/candle-large-modern-cup-ruby-red-suede-red

Daily Essential

October 15, 2018

While its admirable to recycle all of those plastic and paper shopping bags, it’s hard to look good while doing so on a daily basis. Nao Takahshi’s Cano Leather Handle Tote has got you covered. Just the right size at 16 ” x 6 ” x 11.8 ” and constructed of ultra thick cotton and cowhide with a leather reinforced interior, this bag will have you carting all of the others directly to the recycling center. A great briefcase alternative….with plenty of space for a tablet, note pad, some water and a heathy snack or light lunch…it could also be put to service as a project bag or sidekick to your duffle for a quick weekend road trip.
