    Galentine's Gift Guide

    These next couple months are always slow for retailers, but Galentine's Day is the perfect time to shower yourself or friends with locally made gifts.
    I put together My Top 5 picks and don't worry even if you are on a budget,
    I have gifts that range from FREE-$89. 
    greta jane paper co. la pimbeche montreal, copious denim patchwork heart sweaters, playlist, armure beauty

    1. The smallest gesture can mean the most, like getting a card in the mail that not only makes your day, but also makes you laugh! Greta Jane Paper Co. has you covered, plus she has the BEST stickers that would be perfect to send as well. 

    2. I love a good graphic tee, and this Fierce like Frida one is perfect for any Gal to rock. La Pimbêche has graphic tees, sweaters, patches and other accessories all celebrating being an intersectional feminist.

    3. The Conscious Heart Sweater is the perfect sweater to give and this limited edition patchwork heart is extra special. Each heart is made from saved scrap denim, sewn together to create this beautiful textured patchwork heart. 

    4. This year is unlike others and if you are on a budget giving the gift of a thoughtful playlist is super thoughtful, but its also FREE! My BFF sends me playlists all the time and it is 100% appreciated. She has introduced me to new music and brought old favourites back into my life. Whichever platform you use, it just takes a little time to curate a great playlist. This is the latest playlist she sent, feel free to use it! 

    5. Is there anything better than the gift of self care? Armure Beauty has so many options, from bath salts to oils and serums, all made locally and with natural ingredients. They even have kits if you want to gift an experience to yourself or your BFF who needs some pampering.

    However you celebrate, make sure to celebrate with locally made gifts.

    Last Minute Gift Needs? Shop Local!

    The made local movement is stronger than ever, but as we get closer to Christmas there is that tendency to hop over to Amazon or a Big Box Store to shop somewhere that can provide faster service. Don’t feel bad, we all do it, even me! But this year I have made a point of stopping myself and seeking out somewhere local to buy a gift and I figured you might need help with that too.
     
    This is the last week to shop before Christmas and I have A LOT of shops to help you out. No matter where you are in Ontario, there are a lot of shops to help you keep supporting local leading up to the Holidays.

    Under $30 Holiday Gift Guide

    Since I was a little kid, my Grandma has done table gifts for our Christmas Dinner. We would have all the excitement of Christmas with yummy snacks, present opening and then when we sat down for dinner, before we would eat we would get one last gift. With the next generation coming into the world, we buy less and less for each other as adults, so our table gifts have become even more special.

    In recent years I have started to help GG buy the table gifts, so I have become an expert at finding locally made gifts for under $30. Now of course I can't share what I bought for everyone this year, I don't want to ruin the surprise, but I can share what I bought for everyone last year.

    #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.

    Galentine's Gift Guide

    Honestly I am not a big Valentine's Day person, BUT I am all about celebrating
    my gal's any chance I can. So I put together my top 5 LOCALLY made gifts to give the ladies in your life this Galentine's Day. 
    galentine's gift guide, canadian made gift guide, gloria steinem, night moves atelier, alicja confections, LINEoriginal, Copious Femme Sweater
    1. I love getting a great book as a gift, my BFF sends me books and it always makes my day. My Life on the Road by Gloria Steinem & DisruptHER by Miki Agrawal are two empowering reads that I recommend for the feminist in your life.
    Here are some local book shops you could support.
    TORONTO: Type
    MONTREAL: St. Henri Books
    OTTAWA: Perfect Books 
    2. Night Moves Atelier is a great option for that unique woman in your life, her jewelry is bold, colourful and unlike anything I have seen before. Each piece is like wearable art and has a great vintage aesthetic, you will definitely stand out when wearing this jewelry.
    3. The Femme Sweater is my newest edition to the Copious family and with this sweater, you can wear your love of woman and all we have accomplished with pride. Each sweater is hand stitched with 3 women's names on it and you can learn more about their amazing work in the world at The Femme Blog Post. This is an extra special piece because with each sweater purchased a $5 donation is made to the Ottawa Rape Crisis Centre. 
    4. I can't say enough amazing things about Alicja Confections, the chocolate is AMAZING and there are so many UNIQUE flavour options and on top of all that it comes in this GORGEOUS packaging. I can never throw her boxes away, so I always buy two that go together and frame them once the chocolate is gone! 
    5. T-shirts and Sweaters are having a huge fashion moment right now and I LOVE it, because it's what I live in. LINE Original is a great gift option because Alex's designs have a dark witchy vibe, for that gal in your life who's soul is black.
