Amaranth Food’s Holiday Local Gift Guide

, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

 

This holiday season, shop locally at Amaranth for unique and meaningful gifts for everyone on your list, and for fresh, healthy and delicious foods for holiday parties. Check out our top picks for locally-made, locally-sold products. All ideas are from Calgary, Edmonton, or Canadian owned (i.e. the Green’s your Colour bottles). 

 

Green’s Your Colour Water Bottles

Who doesn’t need a water bottle? These designed-in-Canada stainless steel bottles are the best. They’re made with non-toxic ingredients, and they keep hot drinks hot for 8+ hours and cold drinks cold for 36+ hours.

 

Why We Love It: It has all the features you need from a water bottle: a tea strainer, carrying handle and an ice cube-sized spout.

 

Where to Find It: Calgary locations (Arbour Lake, 130th Street and 4th Street)

 

The Gut Lab Organic Bone Broth

 

Stay healthy during the busy holiday season by keeping this Calgary-made, delicious chicken bone broth on hand. Heat up a bowl as a meal or early-morning drink and drink in the nutritional benefits and hearty flavour.

 

Why We Love It: There’s nothing better than a cup of warm bone broth on a cold day. Plus, it’s good for paleo and gluten-free diets.
