Vicki the Cow's EcoDairy Gift Guide
If you’re like Vicki the cow you have a lot of friends and family on your Christmas list to find that perfect something for and you’re not waiting until December 22nd to put a little check-mark beside their name.
There’s a lot of things to love about the Christmas season… Eggnog, colourful twinkling lights on homes, cozy sweaters, special gatherings with family and friends, ice-skating, caroling, sleigh rides, gift giving and so much more.
Finding the perfect gift isn’t always easy, so this year we asked Vicki for some advice, and she’s come with 3 tips for finding something special that your loved ones will truly cherish, and the best part is that you can find it all right here at EcoDairy!
- Make memories, not trash.
You know that person that seems to have EVERYTHING, they don’t need another knickknack but there’s a good chance they enjoy making memories and going on adventures.
From December 1st - 23rd EcoDairy is offering a Membership BOGO (buy one get one 50% off)! We love our members, they get great benefits like seeing the cows whenever they want during open hours, special behind the scenes tours, free admission to EcoDairy events, coupons, discounts and more! If a whole year of fun on the farm isn’t what you’re looking for you can purchase single person and family day passes for one visit. Our tours are fun and interactive for the whole family. Give the gift of a farmhand experience!
- Shop local.
You can feel AWESOME when you support local businesses because aside from the item itself, you’re also buying hours of planning and work that went into that product, you’re buying a piece of someone’s imagination and heart, and it’s always great when our hard-earned money can stay within the community with people we know and love.
Nature’s Pickin’s Market has LOCAL products galore, from cookie and cake mixes, to honey and sweets, spices, oils, gluten-free options, the list goes on - perfect for building a gift basket for the foodie in your life! If you want to add some farm fresh items like milk, eggs or grass-fed beef from our farm, stop by our Discovery Center, show us your receipt and instead of taking the fresh products right away we’ll give you a coupon to slip into the basket for future use!
Another way to shop local is to attend any holiday markets happening around town, there’s a different one almost every weekend for you to explore and find some really unique treasures! Check with our friends at Tourism Abbotsford for more details.
- “The more that you READ the more things you will know. The more things that you learn the more places you’ll go.”
While you’re picking up some goodies at Nature’s or a Family Pass from EcoDairy, you can ask us about our BRAND NEW book selection! We have lots of awesome titles like “Milk Goes to School” “Doug Unplugs On the Farm” “Is That Wise, Pig?” and “Kiss the Ground”.
There you have it, you’re all set! Let us know how we can help you with your gift buying this season. Happy shopping!
