Handmade For The Holidays by Fran Allen

We believe in supporting small businesses throughout the year–especially around the holidays. Which is why we decided to partner with some of our favourite handmade Canadian brands to bring you the ultimate homemade holiday gift guide and giveaway! Below is a list of all the amazing products and brands featured in our giveaway, and a list of my favourite go-to Toronto shops when it comes to gift-giving.

Eleventh House Jewellery

I love everything about Eleventh House. Morgan’s beautiful rose quarts hoops are functional, fashionable and loaded with loving rose quartz energy. A perfect gift for someone needing a little extra TLC.


Gutlabs powders are the perfect beauty supplement. Their Glow powder is a great addition to your morning smoothie, and pairs nicely with a magic bullet or a vitamix.

Fenwick Candles

Who doesn’t love a handmade candle? These organic beauties from Fenwick Candles are made with organic coconut wax and pure essential oils, right here in Toronto. Cozy winter vibes, here I come!

Living Apothecary

A tea blend is a great gift for this time of year. We absolutely love Living Apothecary’s blend of organic herbs made here in Toronto. This Take Care blend is made with oat straw and lavender, calming any unwanted holiday nerves and stress.

Oksana Berda - Artist

Why not treat someone special to an original piece of art? We love Toronto artist Oksana Berda’s water-inspired drawings for their uniqueness and calming effect.

Yours Truly, Province Apothecary

Our Black Spruce + Fir Balsam Essential Oil Incense are great for the person who longs for the outdoors. It smells like walking through a snowy forest, and pairs perfectly with our limited edition solid brass Horizon incense holder.

Enter to win all of these treats in the ultimate gift box. For more details visit our Instagram page.

Here are some of my favourite local shops for thoughtful and unique gifts. I can always pop into one of these places and find a great gift for someone special.


Danielle does an amazing job curating a beautiful assortment of handmade gifts and treasures. From jewellery to housewares, vintage to beauty products, each piece is thoughtfully picked to inspire. If I could describe this shop in 3 words: elegant, subtle and timeless. Be warned: you will want to leave with one of everything.

Hello Mellow

Looking for a unique and unusual gift for the wellness weirdo in your life? Look no further than this mom and pop shop. They pay close attention to their suppliers and always have an amazing selection of goods by women and First Nations makers. Small and mighty, this tiny shop has a huge heart.

Likely General

A wonderful Roncesvalles shop supporting small makers. Full of curiosities made by independent makers around the world. Stop in and check out their amazing backroom gallery, get a tarot card reading, and check out one of their upcoming workshops. A cozy space that is full of warmth, good vibes, and usually an adorable pup or two!
