Blog/NewsDecember 19th 2017

Kristin Archer from I Heart Hamilton came on MorningFile to chat all about her local #HamOnt Gift Guide in Hamilton Magazine this month! Kristin is known as the ideal guide to all things Hamilton and she hasn't let us down with this carefully hand-picked guide of treasures for everyone on your list. 

The guide includes gift ideas for "him," "her," "home," and "them" including gifts suitable for friends, family, kids and even strangers! Supporting local is one of the best ways to give back this holiday season to Hamilton as a thriving city. Some of the ideas on her list are Hammer Rings, treatments at The Wax Lounge, enamel pins at Sugar Bones and more!

Check out trinkets at the Girl on the Wing, Studio 205, White Elephant, or O's Clothes. Grab some beer from Merit Brewing or some treats from the Hamilton Store.

Pretty Grit is full of beautiful and unique home goods, and Citizen Kid is a great Locke Street destination to find items for the little ones in your life! Kristin chats about gift boxes at Stocked in HamOnt and soaps from Burlap & Twine, but we can't give away all of her recommendations; you'll have to read up on them yourself in this year's holiday edition of Hamilton magazine which can be found in local shops, news stands and bookstores around town.

Kristin took some time to reminisce about how she formed I Heart Hamilton, what the history of her radio show on CFMU has been and what her very first article was based on! She chats about the Inlet and the excitement that 2017 has brought her. You can hear our full interview below.
