Winnipeg Holiday Gift Guide

Winnipeg Holiday Gift Guide

My goal for this Christmas was to buy local.  And I don’t mean anyone who sells anything locally, but local makers & artists, local Winnipeg institutions and shops, and let’s face it, I wanted to go to as many craft sales as possible.  I think that for the most part I have been successful!  Here are a few of my favourite local shops/makers. (and, to the friends and family reading, sorry if this ruins the surprise just a little when you open up something from one of these places come Christmas 😉 )

  1. Coal & Canary

    I’ve been following Coal & Canary on Instagram for quite a while now (and coveting their beautiful candles), and I was so happy to be able to pick some up at a recent craft show.  I can’t wait to see my loved ones faces when they open their candles!  These candles are basically selling like hot cakes here in Winnipeg.  EVERYONE wants them.

  2. Tiny Feast

    Tiny Feast is another one of my Instagram faves.  I’m a sucker for stationary, pens, organizers and planners, and this store is pretty much the perfect one for me because these are the things they sell!  Their shop is adorable and right downtown, so it’s super easy to get to.  I could spend all day there, there is so much to look at.  It’s really hard not to just buy everything, though

  3. McNally Robinson

    McNally Robinson has been one of my favourite stores since I was a kid.  I love books and reading, and try to get as many of my books from here as possible.  And how can I do Christmas presents without buying books?  Exactly. I can’t!

  4. Red Lake Coffee Co.

    Red Lake Coffee Company is fairly new to Winnipeg, but I’ve heard nothing but good things about them.  They are a give-profit company, so they give their profits to local organizations that help people who are struggling.  Which is especially cool to purchase from at Christmas.  They deliver to the Winnipeg area as well, so I ordered it and it came that Friday! This is a very exciting company and I can’t wait to try their coffee.

  5. Out of the Blue

    This has been one of my favourite shops since I was in high school, and I’ve always loved everything they carry there.  Basically, if you need to find something for me for Christmas, if it’s from Out of the Blue, I will love it. 😉
