Christmastime is here again, and while the malls are only getting busier as everyone flocks in for their last-minute shopping, don't forget we have some great local businesses right here in Calgary that would make your gifts one-of-a-kinda.
DIY Pampering Kit
In a world obsessed with #selfcare (and really, why wouldn’t we be?), there’s always an opportunity to DIY a Self Care gift. Pick out a bath bomb in their favourite scent, pair it with a luxurious face mask, a nice bottle of wine and a candle. Then let them bask in the relaxation that’s sure to come.
There’s little you can give somebody more valuable than your time. You know what makes your friends and family happy. Gift them with a day together at a local spa, or tickets to dinner theatre, to see their favourite band play in concert, or to see their favourite team play in person. The bonus is it give both of you something to look forward to and they get a little taste of the holidays later in the year when you go!
Calgary is home to some truly incredible artisans and businesses. It isn’t hard to find a one-of-a-kind piece of jewellery, accessories or décor that perfectly matches their personality. MarketSpot YYC has two pop up spaces in Calgary this month curated with local artisans you won’t find anywhere else!
Support their Hobby
Show your friend you really know them! Think of their favourite hobbies, or one they’ve talked about starting up. Whether they’re into crafting, gardening, fitness, art, or something else all together, support of their passion is something they will love.
They’re the gift that keeps on giving! What you may not know is there a several Calgary based subscription boxes to support the local community too! From craft beers, to fitness, to ice cream and everything in between, you can get them a gift box that they’ll be able to enjoy a couple times throughout the year!
Start a new Tradition
The Christmas Pickle has been everywhere this year. Get one for you, hang it on your tree and when everyone absolutely loves the Christmas morning pickle hunt, have one ready in their stockings so they can carry the tradition next year too.
