LOCAL LOCALE LOCALEEEE.
One of my goals every holiday season in regards to gift giving is to source as many local gifts as I can. The idea of supporting someone who is working so hard to create something unique makes the gift seem infinitely more special. You can find just about anything here in Winnipeg, and these are some of our favourite shops. Check them out this season and give a gift that is unique and contributes to our local economy!
The new (ish) independent fromagerie in friendly Winnipeg. All the cheeses they carry have a rich history. They are a labour of love, created by the dedicated farmers who believe in producing the highest quality milk; and the cheese makers, who pour their heart and soul into everything they mould.

Poppie is all about helping women feel their best. With helpful, hands on staff, you’re guaranteed to find something you love. This store offers a wide range of options for people so that they can get as much of their shopping done in one stop as possible, get on with their lives and feel great doing whatever it is that they do best.
Go on, get a gift card!
dconstruct designs and manufactures unique, eco-friendly jewelry. dconstruct’s jewelry is handmade from leading architectural materials and each piece contains a minimum of 40% pre-consumer recycled material. The recycled content would otherwise be waste from producers of sky lights, store fixtures and vending machine covers.
Their shelves are stocked with an incredible selection of greeting cards, notebooks, writing instruments, and modern office supplies. You will also find a curated selection of housewares, accessories, lifestyle publications and children’s books.
