Shop Local – Gift Guide for Her

December starts on Monday… yes, on Monday already! So that means it’s time to start shopping for those special people in your life.

We believe that it’s important to support local businesses, so here’s our gift guide “for her” featuring items that are all either made locally here in BC, or sold at a local shop.


1. iPhone cases made in Vancouver by Field Trip. 2. Buying for a lady with a little one at home, or on the way? Spoil her with a pair of Minimocs made right here in Abbotsford! 3. This beautiful necklace is made by one of our very own employees, see more of her work on her Facebook page: V’s Arts & Photography. 4. Staples and Sundries soap made locally, available at one of our favourite Gastown shops: Old Faithful Shop. 5. What girl doesn’t love Rifle Paper Co? These recipe boxes can be found at Spruce Collective. 6. You can never go wrong with a cozy headband by Knits by Katie. 7. A simple pair of elegant earrings from Vancouver jewelry company Foe and Dear.


Did you know that our next door neighbours, Nature’s Pickin’s, have a section in their store that is full of handmade local items. You should check it out!

Another great way to support local businesses this holiday season is by shopping at markets and fairs.
