This is a must-have for the little one in your life because what child doesn’t like a colouring and activity book; and one that’s 100 percent Antiguan, even better. Antigua My Antigua
is the result of a collaboration between artist Edison Liburd and writer (and The Best of Books
manager) Barbara Arrindell and, word is, it’s not just fun for kids, but a real keepsake for locals and visitors of all ages.
Also kid-approved are the new line of Christmas cards from Art at the Ridge
at Sugar Ridge
. There’s a good reason for that. The cards boast the six winning designs from this year’s Christmas card competition. Pick up your stack today at the gallery, at any Best of Books
location, or at the school which produced these budding artists, Island Academy.
If you do make the drive out to the Ridge, and you should, especially on Aveda Beauty Night
, if you can, check out the Aveda Concept Spa’s Holiday Package
or personalize your own; and pamper someone for Christmas.
You can also plan your shopping excursion with a little help from the A & B Buzz which lists 10 of the best ways to enjoy Christmas in Antigua
, for varied experiences, with the Food and Drink Guide’s Table Manners
among the treats for the gourmet on your list.
Speaking of food lovers, have you considered a gift certificate from Al Porto
– live music, authentic Italian dining, on the waterfront – couldn’t ask for much more.
The adventure lover on your list may appreciate the 12 new exciting zip lines and four amazing aerial walkways now part of fun at the Antigua Rainforest Canopy Tour
. Take it from us, there’s nothing quite like zipping through the forest; it’s one of those things you really should do at least once.
Speaking of fun, why not book the kid on your list, a spot on the Swalings Playlist
. With beach activities, hikes, raft building, soccer madness, face painting, t-shirt design, cookie decorating, and Swalings Olympics, it’ll be several gifts in one.
Sometimes the best gift is an experience. And a day’s excursion on board the Jabberwocky
is the perfect pre-Christmas adventure for lovers of fresh sea air, open spaces, and a merry time on and in the water. On the menu for Christmas: Jabberwocky Ginger Chicken, Homemade, Filo Mince Pies with Rum Custard, PLUS a complimentary bottle of Champagne. Extend your stay, and enjoy the most magical time of day, sunset, from the water while you nibble on salmon canapés and traditional homemade rum punch. Talk about an experience!
Stop by Automotive Art
to shop for the car lover in your family with Santa’s Super Savings
, good through January 7th.
