Vic Park Holiday Shopping: Food & Beverage

December 14, 2018, Posted by Megan

We are continuing on our journey for perfect gifts this holiday season (click for retail or health and beauty options)! This week we have suggestions from the amazing food and beverage offerings found in Victoria Park. Cocktails, food and coffee – Vic Park has it all! We like to think that there’s a little bit for everyone in our neighbourhood.

For the super foodie on your list or the coffee aficionado, there are lots of ideas and options. Let’s start with Rosso Coffee Roasters! This local coffee shop sells everything needed to make the perfect cup of coffee – beans, filters, aeropress, etc. Coffee and coffee accessories are like socks, it’s hard to go wrong with those.

Leopold’s Tavern has gift certificates and an assortment of merch available. Their neighbours at Tokyo Smoke have a range of coffee and cannabis accessories, which both make great gifts! You could also grab a gift certificate, plant, candles or merch from Little Henry (Ten Foot Henry).

For individuals that enjoy experiences rather than gifts, Shelter offers cocktail classes every month. Or, you can grab a gift certificate from one of the many restaurants, pubs or cafés, such as Bottlescrew Bill’s Pub, Bar Von der Fels, Cardinale, Foreign Concept, Grumans, Jasmine Lounge, Koi, Native Tongues, Provision, Raw Bar, Yellow Door or ZCREW Café.

Keep an eye out for gift card deals! Buy a $100 gift card online from Two Penny Chinese or the Tea House on December 15 and 16, and you’ll receive an additional gift card valued at $20. For the month of December, The Beltliner is offering their gift cards for 20% off. For every $50 gift card purchased from Mill Street Brew Pub, you’ll receive an extra $10 card to be used in the new year.

Manuel Latruwe has an assortment of jams and treats that make perfect stocking stuffers. Not to mention, Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut has everything for those chocolate lovers on your list. Chocolates are a no brainer, especially when it’s locally made, handcrafted chocolate! Or, let Sweet Relief Pastries take care of the holiday baking this year. Grab some cookies or a cake, and you’re all set!

Gift cards are perfect stocking stuffers. If you need to wrap, Shoppers Drug Mart has everything you need to get your gifts ready for the holidays! OFor retail options in Vic Park, click here. For health and beauty, click here.
