WATCH: Carla from St. Mary's Nursery and Garden Centre shares some of the top tree trends for Christmas 2019.

With her weekly pick of fun things to do on the weekend, here is the rundown from ‘Global News Morning’s Kahla Evans.

This weekend is all about taking care of your last-minute holiday errands!

1. Last-minute holiday gifts

It seems like it happens every December.

No matter how organized you are, how many lists you make or how early you get started on your shopping, there’s always one person you end up having nothing for.

Thankfully, St. Mary’s Nursery and Garden Centre has something for everyone and at all price points.

I got to hang out with Carla at St. Mary’s earlier this week, and she had tons of great ideas for anyone you may have missed.

There are also endless options for holiday decorations and festive plants, too, if you’re looking to treat yourself to a little something.

More holiday shopping ideas can be found on Carla’s website.

2. Holiday appetizers

Most of us will find ourselves invited to some sort of holiday gathering, or maybe we’re going to be hosting our own shindig over the next several days.

These parties always revolve around the food.

Well, there’s no need to stress! We had Sue from Zest Cooking Solutions swing by the Global News studios with some easy-to-make appies that will wow the crowd.

The vegan “crab” cups, two different types of palmiers and avocado deviled eggs were delicious!
