Christmas Gifting Deutsche Style

European Specialty Importers is one of my favourite food shopping experiences in the city. Signed as "From Europe with Love since 1957", this store carries a huge variety of mainly German goodies. Whether you are a regular visitor or have never been there before, this is the best time to visit and discover the array of Christmas goodies that can make any gift basket unique and special. Here are some of my favourite finds on this trip...

- advent calendars from Germany
- beautiful Christmas cardboard platters that can serve as gift "baskets"
- Chriftftern, a beautiful looking bottle of de-alcoholized spiced wine
- Vanilla Kipfer (cookies)
- Geleo Annas-Sterno, a mixture of dried pineapples and chocolates
- Huge pre-packaged Christmas Stollen from Germany
- old fashioned chocolate Santa Clauses
