Last minute Christmas shopping in montreal

OOps it is almost Christmas and as usual I am running late for Christmas shopping. I am looking at my list of favorite Boutiques in Montreal and I would like to share my finds with you. Don’t forget to call before you shop to make sure that they still have these items in stock.

Starting with the eternal scented candles, they are a great gift, we cannot neglect the power of smell. The sense of smell is closely linked to memory, maybe more so than any of our other sense and I believe that Christmas is also about memories.

Votive Scented candles $3.99 to $31.99 for the adult ones.

TIPS

I would recommend that you keep your last minute shopping for smaller gifts, the less expensive ones. For the bigger presents like for the love of your life, you can always buy something at the last minute, but try to scout a few items before so that you are not in a bind and forced to buy something your will regret.

These choices are from $5.00 to $75.00 except for the big puzzled Moose.

To all my last minute shopper friends, ”MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU” and have the Merriest of Christmas
