We are so pleased to present our 2021 Local Holiday Gift Guide! This year’s cover illustration and floral graphics were created by the talented artist and designer Krista Power. You can find more of Krista’s work on page 42 of the guide or visit her website at www.kristapower.com
Featuring over 120 items from 50 local artists and creative entrepreneurs, you’re sure to find something unique for that special person on your shopping list this year – or even a treat for yourself.
From beautifully handcrafted Christmas wreaths and cheeky and fun greeting cards to one-of-a-kind wooden carvings, lovingly handcrafted jewellery, local literature and music, art classes, cozy hand-knit accessories, cute, crocheted critters and much more, there’s truly something for everyone.
The past 20 months have been a challenge for everyone, including our local arts and business communities – but their resilience and creativity continues to inspire and impress. Our gift guide offers you an easy and effective way to support local by gathering a number of vendors all in one place, letting you browse local, handcrafted products (including links to artists’ websites and social media pages to learn more), or shop specific sellers or categories.
As seasonal craft fairs and markets start picking up again, this guide provides people across the province the opportunity to shop and support local creators, regardless of their location.
So pour up your favourite hot beverage and dig in. Make sure to share this guide with your family and friends, and thank you for supporting local this holiday season!
