I know this is rather last minute, but I’m basically just starting my Christmas shopping this week. In years prior I would start months before, ordering and accumulating so much stuff. Last year was a mess thanks to the nervous breakdown, so this year feels like a brand new start. The way we live life is drastically different than it was before and it only makes sense that we approach Christmas differenly as well. I absolutely love giving and receiving gifts – that part hasn’t changed. But now I’m using this opportunity to support local and small business and share the things we have come to love with the people we love.
I’ve compiled a dream list of last minute gifts that you can likely find locally – most of these things are either from Vancouver based brands or can be found in boutiques like Fieldstudy. I’ve attached links for those who might need, but have also listed where Calgarians can find it. Lots are at Fieldstudy, which is kind of a given – I’m in love with that store (but this post is in no way sponsored – you just spend a lot of time coveting beautiful things when you’re surrounded by them, and Fieldstudy is basically my dream store).
The most cozy Hendrik Lou Toque (also at Fieldstudy in the best ochre colour ever)
Still or Sleep Vitruvi Roll On Essential Oil Blend (also at Fieldstudy in Calgary)
Pranic Forest EVERYTHING (local to Calgary and only sold through her online shop or her studio, and she’ll be at Market Collective this weekend)
This amazing Moon Phase Calendar (you guessed it – also at Fieldstudy!)
This beautiful moonstone ring
These beautiful leather straps for hanging things ($40/pair at Guildhall Home, not available online)
The most gorgeous prints EVER (not biased… at all… but you can just message me)
An intuitive healing session (this one’s available anywhere in the world – just purcahse online & let her know it’s a gift when she reaches out to coordinate the appointment)
A mindbogglingly useful (& beautiful!) dayplanner (probs won’t make it in time for Christmas though)
Pretty notebooks to keep track of thoughts (write something on the inside cover to make it extra special!)
These life changing panties
Or this one that smells like a cookie (we have them at Fieldstudy – hopefully we’ll get more in soon)
