While shopping isn't necessarily my favourite thing to do, I do enjoy finding gifts that I know that others will enjoy receiving. It's always fun to come across items that will be a guaranteed hit when they're unwrapped on Christmas morning.

Whether you shop in-store or online, there are plenty of options to choose from here in Lennox & Addington County. If you're looking for something for children, your spouse, your parents, or your in-laws (which hopefully you can defer the choosing to your spouse), chances are you can find what you need right here.

From Amherst Island to Vichy, France

To be honest, before I started my internship here at the Museum and Archives, I hadn’t spent much time exploring Lennox and Addington County. Despite having boarded the ferry across to Adolphustown countless times and taken that scenic drive along Bath Road, I had never really paused to take in the beauty and history that Lennox and Addington has to offer.

Enjoy a meal with your bubble at a local restaurant

If your chef skills are as subpar as mine are, nothing beats a delicious meal made by someone else. There's no prep work involved, no clean up is required, and let's face it -- it's actually edible.

While dining out at a local restaurant may feel a bit different these days, there are many great locations here in Lennox & Addington that are ready to host your bubble for a fantastic holiday meal. Many offer takeout, curbside pickup, delivery and online ordering options. Gift cards and certificates to local restaurants also make great stocking stuffers.
