The fresh perspective

Freshair Boutique

So here we are again. Somehow it’s the end of 2018 and we are approaching another holiday season. It seems like the stores start promoting decorations and holiday deals earlier every year. Even though we know this is just a marketing tactic to get you to start buying gifts earlier, it can be a good reminder to get a head start on your shopping.


December can be a hectic month as it is. On top of your holiday shopping, you may have parties and get togethers which can be tiring. Squeezing some shopping into all of that can become quite stressful. Step foot into any mall after December 1st and you will see the evidence of that. Malls do not become more cheerful amongst these festivities. People. Get. Cray.


Thankfully we are now living in a world where you can do most of your shopping online in your own home. No need to stand in line or talk to a single person. You can even get your gift wrapped and shipped directly to the person you are purchasing it for. Even though we are not American, Canada seems to have embraced Black Friday as a “holiday.” The timing couldn’t be more perfect for your holiday shopping. It gives you enough time to order online and get your goods before the holidays.


Take a browse on Amazon or Etsy this week to get some inspiration for your holidays gifts. Avoid the malls at all costs if you can help it. The holidays will be here before you know it and nobody needs that extra stress this time of year!

Be Awesome This Season - Shop Local!

Freshair Boutique


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 Cheesemongers

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. 

Check out their gift packages - An awesome idea for a host gift!


Poppie Clothing

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.


Tiny Feast

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.

Check them out - you won’t regret it!
