Last Minute. It’s 9pm, you are on your way to a Secret Santa party or that obligatory holiday gathering. #@*! You forgot a gift! Here are some emergency gift measures you can take after hours in Fernie:
1. 7-Eleven. Scratch’n’Wins are a sure bet for smiles!
2. Any open restaurants. Ask the busy server nicely for a gift certificate.
3. Overwaitea and Extra Foods. Floral departments are at easy access, grab a bunch and go!
4. Liquor stores. A bottle of wine will always get you points!
5. The Re-Gift!

Advice from Chan’s Mom.
How do I get my man to take notice of what I really want for Christmas?
Cathy says, “Men are not mind readers and they’re practical thinkers. Men also aren’t able to catch on when you are being vague. Basically you have to come right out and tell them what you want. Circle it in the catalogue and hand it to them or put it on hold at the shop and tell him where to pick it up. It’s not the most romantic way but it will ensure you won’t open up an electric can-opener - which did happen to Aunt Patsy. She opened it up and threw it at him.”
Thanks Ma!
