My favourite part of the Holiday Season is finding unique, locally made gifts for everyone on my list. This year might look different, but supporting local this season should stay the same. I have curated this Gift Guide to help give you ideas for everyone on your list.

#8. Low Poly Craft is such a unique gift to give. Whether you buy it and put the puzzle together yourself and give the finished product OR you give the gift to your favourite crafter, puzzler or just person who likes to create and stay busy, this will always be a crowd pleaser. Use code STAYSAFECRAFTAWAY for 20% off at checkout + FREE Shipping on orders $150+.

#9. I know this gift isn’t ideal for our current times, BUT when we can get back to normal you should give a Museum Sleepover to the kiddos in your life. At The Museum of Nature in Ottawa, you get snacks, a flashlight tour of the fossils, a scavenger hunt in the mammal section, to interact with the live insects, an IMAX movie, MORE snacks and then you get to go to sleep under the view of the fossils, it was TRULY amazing and the kids enjoyed every minute. Museums all over Canada do this as well, check out this link to see if a museum in your area has this option.

#10. Misneach, which is Gaelic for courage, is a truly incredible company. She imports these beautiful Celtic plaids from Scotland, using the highest quality leather and very durable hardware to create these unique, trendy and beautiful bags that adds a little punk and edge to any outfit. At checkout use code COPIOUS10 for 10% off your order, good until Nov. 20.

Happy Shopping!
