One of the best places to shop for unique holiday gifts is at local Burlington craft shows. You can find jewellery, food items like chutneys and jams as well as sweet treats, handmade holiday and home decor and so much more.  We definitely recommend picking a show or two to attend and see the amazing talent that comes from right here in Burlington and our surrounding communities.

Find yourself a new mug for your winter hot chocolate or maybe some stocking stuffers for the kids!

Burlington has many holiday activities for families and we hope you are able to enjoy all that is offered during this time of year and have some fun.

If you find that 'perfect gift' at a craft show this year, let us know!  We'd love to hear about your holiday finds.
