Father’s Day Gift Guide

I find Father’s Day gifts to be one of the hardest gifts to buy. Unless your guy has a specific hobby that you can add to each year, it can be really hard to come up with what to get. Lucky for you, I’m here to help you with a few ideas this year!  

If you have young children, I find homemade gifts to be the best option. What Dad doesn’t love getting gift made just for them by their little ones. A few that we have done in the past year are:

Summer Solstice Soirée en Blanc at The Kraus Berry Farm & Estate Winery

What better way to welcome the Summer than with a soirée?  Join us June 21st at Krause Berry Farm and Estate Winery for an evening filled with fun, food, wine, dancing live music and more!

The Summer Solstice Soirée en Blanc is a magical way to celebrate the longest day of the year and the beginning of Summer all while helping local families in need! All proceeds will go to provide support to local families over the Christmas holidays this year through Think Generously Society. Last year we supported 32 families through our unique fundraising events! Lets aim to beat this number this year!

Organic Shops In The Fraser Valley

For starters, let’s dive into some of the reasons organic eating is a good and healthy decision to make! Organic foods do not have the following;  

  • pesticides 
  • herbicides 
  • fertilizers from synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge 
  • ionizing radiation 
  • growth hormones  
  • antibiotics 

Which is pretty amazing considering we live in a world ruled by processed foods.  Organic crops are also more nutritious for you and are usually GMO-free! All the more reason to shop organic!  We aren’t here to convert you or anything, but we are here to keep you in the loop when it comes to.. well… anything positively affecting your lifestyle! With that, here are a few of our favourite local and organic shops in the Fraser Valley!

Perfect Gifts for Graduation

After a full and busy school year, June is a time of celebration and excitement. Final tests are written, projects are handed in and grades are awarded. For students and parents, June is a season to look forward to what life holds next while remembering the challenges and successes that have met you along the way. 

No matter what level of schooling your graduates are completing – high school, university, masters programs  being able to honour their achievements is a wonderful part of their education journey.
