2020 Holiday Gift Guide

HAPPY HOLIDAYS, FRIENDS!

Usually we start our gift guide off with a quick recap of our year, but it's been quite a year, hasn't it?

 

Though there have been challenges, we've had many, many silver linings. We've found new ways to connect, to tell stories, and to build relationships. 

 

From the launch of our inaugural Style Guide to opening a bright new store location, we've had much to be thankful for in 2020.

 

This season's Holiday Gift Guide is inspired by home comforts and the moments that mean the most. You'll find quality pieces that feel good and will be loved for years to come. We've also connected with the team at Rge Rd to bring some extra flavour to this gift guide, including a couple recipes that you can explore as you scroll. 

 

No matter how you're spending the holidays, we hope you find plenty of warmth and comfort all season long. 

 

All the best for 2021!

- The Helm Team


There's nothing quite like the gift of luxury knitwear. Here are a couple of our favourites.

Shop all knitwear

 


Soft, versatile, rugged, and warm. These are shirts he’ll love to live in year after year. 

Shop all casual shirts

 


Last minute gifts and tiny treasures that still pack a big punch.

 


The Helm's Most Wanted

We asked our Instagram followers what they wanted most this year. 

Here are the most coveted pieces at The Helm this season.

When it came to gifts our followers would rather receive, they favoured double-breasted coats over single-breasted, striped shirts over prints, and sneakers over dress shoes. For jewelry, bracelets won by a landslide over cufflinks. Ties and pocket squares got equal amounts of love, as did gloves and scarves. 


A Rge Rd Holiday

Making the most of the season

We had the great pleasure of connecting with the team at Rge Rd to help us bring some (literal) flavour to our gift guide this season.

 

Owners Chef Blair Lebsack and his partner Caitlin Fulton showed us around their beautiful restaurant and their brand new venture, The Butchery, which opens November 18. 

 

We got to chat with them about what the holidays look like in their household, and how 2020 has changed things both at home and in their restaurant.

 

They were gracious enough to give us a couple recipes to share with you, so you can recreate the cozy holiday vibes at home for yourself. Look for them below!

THE PERFECT HOLIDAY COCKTAIL

The holidays just aren't the same without a beverage in-hand, so we asked Blair and Caitlin for one of their favourites to sip during the season. 

They came up with this Canadian take on a Spanish cocktail, which we find pairs great with online gift shopping. 

The Northern Spaniard

1 oz Dillon's Canadian Vermouth

4 oz of your favourite Cava (or Canadian sparkling wine)

Olive and orange peel twist for garnish

Add the vermouth to a glass of your choice, with or without ice. Top with Cava. Garnish with an olive and orange peel and enjoy. 

Gifts for the foodie in the family 

Rge Rd’s brand new butchery has a host of gift ideas for the food lovers in your life.

While you’re at The Butchery picking up the ingredients for the bison recipe below, pick up a gift add-on or two, like locally made preserves or a portable, biodegradable charcoal grill for the adventurers in your life. 

Find them at 10643 – 123 Street, Edmonton, AB

Braised Bison Pannekoek

Our seasonal get-togethers may be a little smaller than we’re used to this season, which presents the perfect opportunity to get a little more creative in the kitchen.

We asked Chef Blair for a recipe that will make holiday dinner at home a little more special, and he did not disappoint.

This braised bison pannekoek is rich and warm with flavours that go far beyond a typical turkey dinner. It might just be your new tradition. Get the recipe at the link below.
