The holidays are fast approaching & while it’s been a tough year for so many, we still have presents to buy!
We all know how hard small businesses have been hit this year and their future may be uncertain. As a part of this community, I urge you to consider shopping small while looking for those perfect gifts for your friends & family. Not only do you get truly unique, high quality products, but your purchase helps a business stay alive when their sales might be down.
I have compiled a list of a few local Edmonton small businesses that we love to consider for your holiday gifting.
Of course, we include ourselves! The gift that keeps on giving is a beautiful reminder of love, promise or intention in a gemstone necklace, bracelet or pendant that will bring a smile to your loved one all year round. Through purpose and energy, our vibrational jewellery empowers you to experience more love, peace and joy.
A curation of the best that Edmonton has to offer! The Seven Eighty stocks Edmonton-themed streetwear featuring landmarks, phrases & references that show your love of YEG.
Craving that Farmer’s Market feeling but have to stay home? Give the gift of grocery delivery from local fruit vendor, Steve & Dan’s. Pick from a variety of produce or order a surprise bundle!
