Halloween is pretty much behind us. When the clocks strike midnight on October 31, that signals 55 more shopping days until Christmas. ’Tis the year to stop procrastinating and avoid the last minute frenzy at the mall. Indigo unveiled some impressive ideas at their recent Make It Merry event that will ensure you score some major gift giving gratitude.
The golden feather motif features prominently in Indigo’s gift collections for 2016. Starting with Snow & Sparkle, this line features cozy and practical accessories in pastels or neutrals, with a liberal sprinkle of shine and bling. Shimmery mitts paired with snuggly scarves and glittery wristlets complete the glam look.
Gifts for the home abound in the Cozy Cabin collection. Adorable critter ornaments, soft throws and faux fur pillows underscore a rustic feel with a dash of glitz.
Indigo has expanded its selections for budding mixologists. The Making Spirits Bright collection feature dazzling glassware, alluring drink mixes and the must-have: a Corkcicle canteen.
There are also plenty of options for those who don’t imbibe. The exquisite Feather Tea Set is a personal favourite, but this ensemble comes in many other patterns to suit any discerning tea drinker on your list.
The theme is updated this year with chic plaid and rustic inspirations, which also runs through Hello Handsome — gifts for the men on your list. Alternatively, cozy reading socks are an easy choice for family, friends and frenemies alike.
To check off everyone on your list, Indigo carries other popular options such as coffee presses, cheese boards, marble kitchen accessories and innovative tech, like Nest and Fitbit. The spirit was upon me and I couldn’t help but score myself a cold brew coffee press and a delicate drip coffee set.
Check one, two for me, but alas no one on my list. Guess this means another trip to Indigo. Maybe see you there?
