So come check out some amazing Canadian Products below, and find what you need this holiday season!
The Gift for Your Fashionista Friend:
The "Esse" Bag from ai Toronto Seoul
If you've been to our site before, you know that one of our favourite Toronto-based brands is ai Toronto Seoul. Founded by three amazing sisters and their mother, ai Toronto Seoul bags are all designed in Toronto, and made in small batches in South Korea.
Our favourite bag from ai is an absolute statement piece that your friend with an eye for fashion will just adore! The "Esse" Bag (inspired by our renewed love for essentials) is a cute little crossbody bag that is bound to turn heads anywhere you wear it. The interior is made from a soft texture, and has a centre button to close the bag. Phone, keys, wallet, maybe some eyeliner or lipstick? This bag keeps it short, and oh so sweet. This is a stunning option to help complete any fabulous outfit - Available in Black, Navy, Taupe, and Olive. After being featured on The Shopping Channel earlier this year, ai Toronto Seoul is a brand ready to explode on the scene, so give a gift that your friends with an ear to the streets will definitely love and appreciate.

The Gift for Your Forever Working-From-Home Friend:
The Cozy Friday Romper in Poinsettia Plaid
At this point, I think everyone has that one friend who's been working from home for nearly two years, and has fully embraced the "zoom call" lifestyle. They've grown their hair a little longer (then cut abruptly decided to cut it), they've done every Tik Tok dance challenge out there, and they've DEFINITELY found a new love for that Pasta Dish with Tomatoes and Feta that everyone was making. Well, for that friend, we think the best gift for them would be something to support their new lifestyle - a Cozy Romper from Smash + Tess. The Cozy Friday Romper in Poinsettia Plaid is made in a thicker fabric to keep you warm throughout the colder months, this Romper is the ultimate WFH uniform. If you're also looking for a gift for the Festive Friend in your group, this Romper will definitely do the trick.

The Gift for Your Ski (or Après Ski) Obsessed Friend:
The Après Actif Merino Wool Toque and Essential Ribbed Long Sleeve
Your friend that's always dragging you out of the city to make you do "fun winter stuff" will love some gorgeous pieces from another Canadian Brand, Après Actif. Founded and designed in Canada, Après is the latest brand to take of thanks to our re-kindled relationship with the great Canadian outdoors. Their 100% Merino Wool Toques are the softest and comfiest toques on the market. Their minimal styling is the perfect mix of trendy and sporty, and they match perfectly with the Essential Ribbed Long Sleeve. This top is made of an ultra-soft Rayon/Spandex blend with the perfect amount of stretch to comfortably contour to your curves. With tops and toques available in Grey, Black, and Champagne/Butter, you can buy a matching pair and stick it out in the chalet while your friend is hitting the slopes.

The Gift for your the Friend That's Starting Their Influencer Career:
The Faux-Leather Headband From Femme Faire & The Aurora Satchel From Pixie Mood
Social Media has EXPLODED over the past year, and influencers have become the new celebrities! Whether is fashion, food, or fitness, we all know a friend who's launched their social media presence and has captivated their followers with intriguing and fun content. Maybe you've even been a part of their photo shoots! They've been promoting super cute pieces throughout the year and you're always waiting to see what new products they'll be showcasing next! Femme Faire and Pixie Mood are two Canadian Brands that are on-trend, and both made promote consumer consciousness. Femme Faire products are Handmade in Canada, and Pixie Mood bags are all lined with Recycled Water Bottles. Ethical, ecological, and stunning, these products tick every box for today's modern consumer! Our go-to combo this season is the Black Faux-Leather Knotted Headband and the Aurora Satchel in black, to match.

The Holidays remind us that everyone is going to be celebrating differently. Hopefully you have a friend in your circle to remind you that giving back what we have to help those who may not is another important reason why celebrating the holidays is so special.
