Gift Guide | From Vancouver Shops

I love our local shops and their owners. Besides them all being super-nice people, they also have amazing taste and they find the coolest things! Whenever I drop in to visit, I'm always amazed at what they have stocked (love them)! So I thought it would be fun to highlight some of my favorite things for the holiday season from some of the shops. Bonus is you can also order these online, so you too can experience a little bit of Vancouver!

Note: Not all of my favorite shops are featured sadly (mainly due to time or no pictures available on their websites), but here are a few (all with gifts in mind for the holiday season).
