There’s no snow yet here, but I’m still starting to feel the holiday cheer. Making the first batch of shortbread today.
Next Monday is the shipping deadline for regular shipping to destinations in North America — ie: Canada and the USA. Although there’s a day or two wiggle room if you live in a major centre.
You’ve got more time if you spring for Premium shipping via Canada Post’s XPresspost service, and there’s always gift certificates.
