Cranberry Collective's Shop Small Holiday Gift Guide 2022
We love to shop small and support local, just like you! So, we’ve put together this gift guide featuring products from our favourite vendors who are both geographically close, and near and dear to our hearts.
Have a browse! Our hope is that we can help you find that perfect gift for the special people on your list!
For the Kiddos
Did you know our children’s collection is comprised of 100% Canadian vendors!? We are continually amazed by the quality and cuteness of these small local businesses. You can’t go wrong with any of this collection, but we’ve pulled together a few of our newest faves for this list.
Little Luba Plaid Shackets – Like, ok. These are freaking ADORABLE. Our first shipment sold out in record time, and we were lucky enough to receive a re-stock in time for the holidays! This style’s plaid print is neutral and pairs great with any of your little’s outfits. Note: we recommend sizing up.
Grandma’s Garden Illustrated book by Amber Antymniuk – the third in this local Saskatoon resident’s children’s book series. Similar to her previous titles, readers will find comfort in her playful watercolour illustrations and rhyming text. Grandma’s Garden is simple, warm and a delight for readers young and old. Be sure to check out H is for Home: A Saskatchewan Alphabet, and Grandpa’s Garage as well!
Nest Cotton Dry Baby Wipes – These eco-friendly wipes are great for sensitive skin. Fully biodegradable and super versatile. Perfect for using during mealtime, bath time, household cleaning, as liners for cloth diapers and more.
For the Animal Lover
We’re, like, kind of obsessed with animals. Send us a cute puppy reel and we’ll be your best friend furever. Which is why we fell in love with British Columbia artist Jessica Gowling’s 100 Ink Animals. Explore the magic of the animal kingdom through imagery, language, and symbolism. An excellent coffee table book!
Perfect stocking stuffer: The 3 Pack Magnet set of Canadian animals by the same illustrator!
For the Outdoorsy Type
Want to know the best addition to a mountain hike? The well-deserved beverage at the summit. :D
For the adventurer on your list, we recommend BarCountry Cocktail’s premium dehydrated cocktail mix. They have all you need to recreate your favourite cocktails in the great outdoors. With three flavours to choose from – Bloody Caesar, Moscow Mule, & Old Fashioned.
Also great for camping!
BarCountry cocktail mixes are made in North America with all-natural flavours.
For the Jewelry Queen
The newest addition to our local Western Canadian jewelry vendors – Isla Rae Jewelry, based in Regina, Sask. Founded in 2012 by Leanne, who was inspired by her daughter Sammantha Rae, to create jewelry which would empower women everyday. Her jewelry is designed, made and curated in Canada, and each and every piece has a lot of love and care weaved into it.
We are totally obsessed with the ‘Kalli’ star sign necklaces. They are flying out the door – grab yours while they’re still in-stock!
For the Host/Hostess
We all know how much love and hard work goes into those delicious holiday meals and festive events! Show your appreciation for the host with one of DYP Refillery’s Shower Steamers or Lamb Soapwork’s bath & body products!
DYP Refillery shower steamers are basically little bath bombs for your shower. Place your steamer out of the direct path of water. Let the steam from your shower activate the amazing scents of Lavender Dreams or Sinus Relief. Dyp Refillery is based in the heart of Calgary with a mission to find greener, more sustainable ways of living.
Lamb Soapworks Bath Bombs – on our Shop Small Holiday Gift Guide three years running! These beauties make the perfect gift. We love the new scents this year – Berries & Cream, and Maple Sugar Cookie. Lara, the artisan and visionary behind Lamb’s Soapworks, is committed to providing the best hand-crafted natural bath and body products. All of their creations are made in small batches with the highest quality, sustainably sourced, vegetable-based butters and oils.
For the ‘IMPOSSIBLE-To-Buy-For’
We all have that person on our list that stumps us every year. For these persnickety peeps we recommend the Good Karma Gift Box!
This beautifully packaged, thoughtful gift supports four small Canadian businesses who give back to their communities and raises funds for the Moose Jaw Humane Society! Featuring products from Isla Rae Jewelry (Regina), Prairie Proud (Saskatoon), Wallflower Designs (Regina), and Apt. 6 Skin Co. (Stratford, ON).
Thanks so much for shopping with us this holiday season; it really does mean the world to our small shop. You make it possible for us to offer these beautiful products from our incredible local makers and shakers!
