Over the holidays I’m ALWAYS looking for unique gift ideas for my loved ones. As consumers we have a ton of choices. When I’m feeling like there’s just too much out there I always go back to purchasing one of a kind or personal gifts from small business owners. Your business means the world to the owner who puts their heart and soul into providing the best possible customer satisfaction everyday. So beat the lines at the big box stores and check out these small businesses for your gifting needs this season!
Frilly Lilly is a beautiful spa with multiple locations that
provides a variety of spa services as well as one of the
most well appointed jewelry and accessory shops in the city.
If you have a spa loving, jewelry addict in your life get over
there ASAP or buy them a gift card to use
when they need a treatment.
I absolutely love giving gifts that are monogrammed or personalized.
It always makes the recipient feel like you’ve really
chosen something just for them.

They create everything from homemade signs
to cups to the cutest tree ornament for your kids!

Here are a few of my favourite items…
Trick your kids into thinking Santa’s EVERYWHERE!
This one works so well that
my cousins daughter went right
up to the camera and said:
‘Hey Santa, I hope you saw that my sister just pushed me!’
Those hilarious moments make this a ‘must get’ item this holiday!
I ALWAYS want things that have my name on them!
I think I’m scarred from never finding my name on
a keychain at a gift shop as kid so these great
little cups are the perfect stocking stuffer or secret Santa gifts!
These customized coffee mugs are perfect
for teachers or buy a set as a great gift for a coffee lover!
Your imagination is the only limitation for these
gorgeous custom made signs.
