The 2018 Holiday Gift Guide
Knots and Pipes
I actually treated myself to a pair of beautiful tassel earrings. I got them in ivory and clip-on style because I don’t have my ears pierced. These earrings made by Heather in Hamilton are super cute and fun. When you wear them you want to shake your head. Also, she offers local pick-up if you’re in the Hamilton Area!
The Pale Blue Dot
The Pale Blue Dot makes it super easy to give the gift of sustainability! You can even create a little sustainable starter kit. Some things that I love to use and are easy switches to make are wool dryer balls, reusable produce bags and reusable cotton rounds! Also, everything is extremely affordable and since it’s all reusable you’re saving yourself some $$.
Lekko Life Goods
Lekko Life Goods makes everything in Hamilton and they are a sustainable brand! Some items that make great gifts are their bread bags, bento bags and cutlery roll.
La Villa Goods
La Villa Goods is based in Hamilton and everything is made by artisans in El Salvador! Dixy, the owner is attending a lot of markets this year in Hamilton/GTA. Check to see if she will be at one near you! Also, the blankets are great for any yogis you have in your life!
Love My Mat
Shelly creates beautiful yoga props out of dead stock fabric, giving it new a life. I use Love My mat Props during yoga classes at In Fine Feather and they are awesome! Some favourites of mine are the yoga strap and mat spray. My mom loves the knee pads!
Pure Home Couture
The prettiest store on Locke! They have lots of gifty items and their candles are amazing. I actually got one from my Aunt last year for Christmas!
Hello Baked in Barton Village is the sweetest little shop to pick up a pre-made gift box or make your own box of candy as a gift!
The coolest company in #HamOnt! They talk about everything from food to fashion to all the new places opening in Hamilton! Gift their brick sticker or an actual Hamilton Brick and be a part of the #Brick Squad.
Sarah’s Little Studio
Sarah and I were in Summer Company together this year. She is a talented illustrator who has a knack for drawing plants and cats! Getting an illustrated Christmas card adds more of a personal touch!
