5 Cool Gifts That Come From Calgary
Jewellery and fitness and skin care, oh my!
We are just weeks away from my absolute favourite time of the year. In other words, the holiday season is upon us and I am on the hunt for gifts for all of my family and friends. Luckily for me I also happen to live in Calgary where there are so many lesser known fashion and lifestyle lines, so I can find unique gifts without the worry of buying the same thing as someone else. Whether you’re shopping for a friend or your mom, Calgary has a little something for everyone.

Coutu Kitsch is THE jewellery to buy if you’re shopping for someone who doesn’t jump for your ordinary clean cut diamonds. Each piece from Coutu Kitsch is truly its own, here the team prefers to use unique stones, vintage materials and precious metals to create specialty statement pieces that you can still wear every day.

Calgarian’s love the outdoors. So it’s safe to say you can trust the 165K Instagram followers of this local line when it comes to keeping cozy. Don’t be fooled by the name, however. This brand offers apparel and accessories that are casual enough for the outdoors, yet cool enough for the city streets paired with a bomber jacket. You’re almost certain to find a gift for the laid back pal in your life.
I know what you’re thinking. Honey? But I swear this isn’t your ordinary sweet stuff. Aside from having a BEE-utiful (sorry, not sorry) Instagram feed, this Calgary business produces only the finest raw honey from local bee populations to keep them oh-so-busy all year round. There’s even an array of natural flavours at Drizzle Honey to choose from (holiday spiced honey – holla at me) so you can make a foodie’s season a little more sweet.
For that someone who takes pride in their skincare regime, Ellie Bianca creates natural and environmentally conscious body oils, lip care and bath salts that do a whole lot more than make your skin glow. All shea butter used in Ellie Bianca products comes from co-ops in Africa that give women the opportunity to unleash their entrepreneurial spirit. Women empowerment AND nice skin? What else could you want?
Got a fitness fiend for a friend? HEMM Fit has absolutely everything you could ever dream of when it comes to living the active lifestyle (or the athleisure lifestyle amiright?). With a huge selection of brands in clothing and accessories it won’t take long to find amazing gear to keep on track for the New Year and beyond.
