Local Gift Guide

With the holidays just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about the gifts we’ll be purchasing for our loved ones. During this time of year, we often gravitate towards bigger companies with larger inventories for our gifts. And while there’s nothing wrong with that, there is another option that will not only help you get creative with your gifts but will also help out your community – you can shop local. Purchasing from local businesses means that you’re helping to support the little guy. These are the companies that are run by a few passionate people who have the desire to bring something more to their communities. Because of this, I’ve compiled a local gift- guide with some of my favorites. They span from BC all the way across Canada.

For Langly, BC – Instagram | Website
Little White House & Co is more than just a store that offers quality, one-of-a-kind type clothing. It is also a beautiful spot to grab an afternoon tea and a bite to eat.

One of the things that I love most about this spot is the romantic vibe of it all. They also have an online store, aptly named the Doll House, where you can find whatever you’re looking for. Their inventory includes gift cards for the holidays and a Christmas collection of unique ornaments and decor.

So Pretty Cara Cotter

Their motto “celebrating connections with yourself and your loved ones” is really what the holiday season is for me. Her timeless and stunning jewelry is made in Canada and is a great fit for those who like to add simple yet classic shine to any outfit. They even have the option to build your own special piece for a loved one.


Hummingbird Chocolate

Ok, be careful with this one! If you order for someone else, make sure you order for yourself as well! This chocolate is AMAZING and once you have a bite you cannot stop! They have gift boxes with a variety and I love their holiday flavors!


Eatable Popcorn

Toronto, ON – Instagram | Facebook | Website
Have you ever wondered what alcohol-infused popcorn would taste like? Eatable Popcorn has brought you the answer, with their Canadian-made gourmet popcorn. Who doesn’t want to try Belgian white chocolate kettle corn infused with champagne or Añejo (tequila) infused artisanal caramel with lemon salt.
