Seasons Christmas Show offers holiday gift, fashion and entertaining ideas
Even — or maybe especially — for the world-weary and the slightly cynical, the Christmas season can be magical; filled with family, fun, and festive food. It’s also one of the busiest times of year, making it a challenge to get through that holiday to-do list.
There are ways to eliminate some of the stress of shopping for gifts and planning for annual get-togethers.
Start with a visit to the Seasons Christmas Show, which runs from Friday, November 22 to Sunday, November 24 at the International Centre in Mississauga. It’s wonderful way to shop from over 200 vendors, offering décor, toys, one of a kind gifts, gourmet foods, baskets, jewellry, fashion and clever entertaining ideas.
I should mention, ahem, that I’ll be on stage at the show, doing several “Fabulous Finds” seminars, in which I’ll showcase some stand-out exhibitors and offer tips for fuss-free holidays. In the lead up to the show, I'll be posting a fabulous find every few days.
