I’m kicking off the holiday shopping season with my annual Christmas Gift Guide! The year 2020 has been particularly hard on entrepreneurs and small business owners. Now more than ever it’s important to support local boutiques in Canada. I’ve always been a big supporter of shopping local, so this year I’m highlighting some amazing Canadian boutiques for my Shop Canadian Christmas Gift Guide!
All of the boutiques I’m featuring this year have an online store making it easy for you to shop from the comfort of your own home. You can even find some exclusive discount codes to kick off your Christmas shopping below! It’s important to note that shipping companies like Canada Post are forecasting delays this season. Be sure to shop early so your items arrive on time!
Plenty offers high-quality, style forward pieces for every occasion. Founded in Canada in 1989, they have since grown to 9 retail locations and an online boutique! I have been a long time customer of their online store and love their in house brand Monk & Lou. Every fall they knock it out of the park with their sweater collection in a variety of styles for the season.
I recently visited their Kitsilano location to update my wardrobe and loved all the jackets and sweaters in store for fall. The Hester Coat is a fully lined jacket that is available in Grey and Navy from Monk & Lou. I love the style and cut of this jacket, it fits well over my sweaters for winter. The Georgia Cardi from Monk & Lou is available in Black and Snuggle Grey with a relaxed fit. I’ve paired it with the Print Justine Tee in Speckle to complete the look!

Mittens Addiction is located in Edmonton Alberta where owner Michelle handcrafts her mittens from reclaimed wool and leather. They are lined with a heavy weight technical fleece to keep you warm with a fitted style that will naturally stretch and form to your hands with wear.

I have had mine for 2 years and they still look brand new, and my hands are never cold when I wear them.
