Unique take on holiday shopping

Christmas shoppers who are tired of spending hours at the mall not knowing what to buy may want to visit the Originals Ottawa Craft show at Lansdowne Park.

Shoppers can browse through thousands of high quality items made by Canadian artisans as well as gourmet specialties.

For those with foodies on their Christmas list, Better than Sex chocolates from Vancouver sell for $33 for three bags.

For a more memorable gift, Practical Art sells handmade steel wine racks in the shapes of grape vines that can hang on the wall or rest on a table.

“The practical aspect is nice and a lot of pieces have a dual function,” said Blair Miskie, who also sells steel dragonfly solar lights that can either hang on the wall or light up a garden in the summer.
