Holiday Gifting with Etsy Canada

Let’s not make it difficult this holiday season to find something special for your loved ones. Personally, supporting local and small has become part of why I love a place like Canada so much. There are so many talented local makers whom I’ve stumbled upon, been introduced to or recommended by a friend over the past few years. At the end of every purchase there is a real person doing a happy dance! It’s important not only to appreciate all the work that goes into the product, but the story behind the brand and its makers. So my friends, this year I’ve teamed up with Etsy Canada to present you a curated list of my top 10 favourite holiday items for everyone on your list! In addition, as part of #TWH12DaysOfGiveaways, you have a chance to win a $100 Gift Card to use on Etsy Canada – click here for more details!

Baltic Club – Makers from Montréal, Mélanie and Brice draw each product and try to do as much they can themselves. Their print products, along with enamel pins are fun and light at heart. The perfect gift for those loved ones who enjoy a beautiful print or two. My pick is their Moon Map Print en francis s’il vous plaît!

Dahls” – Beautifully handmade (and sturdy might I add) aprons for anyone working in the kitchen, crafting or even in the garage! Made in Montréal, but shipping is available worldwide. My pick is the Striped Denim Apron that is the perfect for any host!

Ellingwood Soap Co. – A husband and wife duo who make all natural soap, candles and body care products based out of their home in Hamilton, Ontario using all natural ingredients. One of the sweetest couples I’ve met in real life and they’re as amazing as the products they produce. One of my faves includes the Citrus Balsam Soy Candle, perfect for everyone including your colleague.

Euris – Made in Calgary, Alberta, these Mini Geometic Boxes are the perfect keepsake box for that special holiday proposal or to hold any precious jewelry!

Hook and Stem Co. – Another husband and wife team working out of Toronto make our hearts swoon over well-crafted every day items from reclaimed wood- hurray for helping protect our planet! I couldn’t resist and have already purchased this beautiful Mid Century Modern Plant Stand!

Jennyrijke – Jenny made the leap in turning her passion into a small business by renovating her garage to become a studio. She designs and crafts each ceramic piece in small-batches in rural Eastern Ontario. I have my eye on these beautiful Small Indigo Marbled Planters/Bowls!

Josie Guenther – I was first introduced to Josie’s beautiful line through an Etsy event and instantly fell in love. With a desire to make well made, well designed linen housewares, Josie has produced gorgeous textiles made by hand in Winnipeg, Manitoba. My heart is set on this simple and minimalistic Linen Blue Dash Scar, the perfect gift for mom!

Domestic Objects – Finally, for the little ones, check out the cutest little teepee handmade in Vancouver, B.C. My choice is the Children’s Play Tent Teepee in White twill – as an added bonus it even comes with a padded mat base and two pillows!

Rugged Lot – Sophisticated and simple handmade leather goods. Each and every product is hand-crafted from the very beginning: sourced, cut, sewn and finished all by hand. Made locally in Toronto, Canada, each product can be monogrammed free of charge which adds a personal touch to every gift. My pick is for your the men: Natural Veg Tan Leather Three Card Slot Wallet that ages and changes to a beautiful tan over time.
