50 Gifts From Local Makers

Because nothing says holiday spirit like supporting Canadian brands

If there’s something the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us over the past eight months (aside from the necessity of wearing a mask), it’s the importance of local businesses. With many people making the decision during the pandemic to purchase from those within their own communities, there was a renewed awareness of just how great and talented our country is (obvi!). From sweatsuits (a WFH must) and pottery to beauty products, there’s really no reason to look outside of our borders when it comes to filling our lives and homes with cute goodies. And we want that appreciation for local makers to continue into the holiday season—and forever, TBH.

In time for the holidays, we’ve rounded up gift picks from some of our favourite Canadian makers across the country. From a scrumptious bar of soap straight from the Yukon, to essential leakproof underwear that’ll get you through this holiday season (and every menstrual cycle thereafter), to a chapeaux from a Montreal-based millinery that would make Lady Gaga scream with envy, we have the best of the best in Canadiana.

And we promise, there’s not an overused plaid in sight.
