December is a magical time of year, everyone talks a little kinder, and laughs a little louder. Yes there are all the commercial holiday expectations that tell us to get out there and buy that perfect gift, but in reality what is a perfect gift? And is there ever really a perfect Christmas?
At SwizzleSticks we always strive to get our wonderful guests access to some amazing items, products and services. Especially the kind of items that impacts a far greater audience than just giver and receiver. And when a gift enhances the lives of many, that “perfect gift” may just be a little more attainable. Isn’t meaning what it’s all about?
This local jewellery line is popping up everywhere, and for good reason! Not only is it sustainable, and responsibly sourced. But on top of it all this company gives back! A portion of every sale goes directly to help break the cycle of poverty for women. In fact their “Dianne Collection” is giving back 10% to women in poverty. Swizz carries a thoughtful collection of their pieces, and we are sure you’ll find something special for someone special!

New to the SwizzleSticks family, this line of First Nations Aromatherapy has become our latest obsession. “Chiiyaam” in Algonquin means Peace. It is by far our most beloved aroma, and is an energy clearing smudge. This Smudge is calming and clears negative energy. The aromas of cedar, white sage, rosemary and hemlock to name a few literally changes your brain. The ingredients are harvested responsibly, and each and every product in their line is packaged and labelled by a person. They believe that to invest in their team is far better than to invest in automation. Invocation is a gift that gives back by supporting ancient First Native Tradition and wisdom while experiencing aromatherapy at its finest!
Calgary Food Bank
This year SwizzleSticks has decided to forgo the traditional collection of non-perishable food donations, and instead raise some much needed funding for the Calgary Food Bank. Be sure to stop by for some gifts that give back and buy yourself a raffle ticket for $5. 100% of proceeds will go to the Food Bank and you get a chance to win a gift basket worth over $1000 in prizes! And even includes 2 of Swizz’ own Moroccan Holiday Spa Packages! Buy 5 tickets for $20 and you also get to choose a gift off of the tree!
We hope that your season is filled with light and laughter, and most importantly meaning!
From all of us at SwizzleSticks we wish you a very Merry Swizzmas and a very successful New Year!
