Vancouver Christmas Market | Holiday Gift Ideas 2017
A couple days ago, I had the pleasure of previewing the Vancouver Christmas Market before it officially opened for Christmas 2017 and I've got an awesome sneak peek at all the food and shops that are available this year. So today, I wanted to share with you a list of unique and amazing gifts you can find at the market......

1. 4Cats | Sculpt A Yet Kit:
This is a fun and simple DIY kit perfect for lovers of arts and crafts. You get four shades of colorful clay to mold into a cute yeti. Once your masterpiece is complete, bake it in the oven to preserve its shape.
2. The Hartmont Candle Company | Woodland Whisper Candle:
For candle aficionados, The Hartmont Candle Company offers a range of handcrafted, high-quality soy candles made with a woodwick that crackles as it burns.
3. My Brilliant Star | Mini Herrnhut Star Kit:
With an origin tracing all the way back to the 18th century, the Herrnhut star is a traditional German symbol of Christmas. At the Vancouver Christmas Market, My Brilliant Star offers a whole array of decorative Herrnhut stars in various sizes, colors, and materials. The one I have here is actually a DIY kit that includes all the pieces needed to assemble a mini Herrnhut star. The set comes with a mini light bulb as well but the battery pack is sold separately.
