My Favourite Local Gift Ideas for Everyone on your List!
We are now in full holiday mode and there are so many reasons to celebrate! While we may be celebrating a little differently this year we can definitely show the love by supporting our nearby shops and giving thoughtful local gifts (in Thornbury) to everyone on your list.
I have done some festive research and have come up with a list of Thornbury shop suggestions and my favourite gift ideas for everyone!
Looking to relax?
Grab a gift certificate for what I will guarantee will be the best facial ever at Georgian Glow Instagram handle @georgianglow3 in the Thornbury Mews
Looking to get fit?
Two the Core (@Twothecorecr), The Fit for life team (@thefitforlifeteam), Inner Yogies (@inneryogies), Lemonade Collective (lemonade_collective) will start your 2023 on the right track with your style of fitness.
If donation as a gift in kind is on your list:
Events For Life (@eflthornbury), Beaver Valley Outreach (@beavervalleyoutreach) are both excellent charities!
Why not give the gift of custom art?
Self-taught custom artist Merlot Duncan-Cole (@mildperfectionist), Square foot paintings are now for sale (Until Dec. 20 2022) Loft Gallery (@loftgalleryart), Matilda Swanson Gallery (@matildaswanson) all have so many unique and wonderful pieces.
Has a little bit of everything for everyone! Can be found @thegeorgianartisanshop on Instagram. Jewlery, tea and mugs, Pillows & Pillow spray, candles, plants, cute planters, and much much more!
Can be found @thecheeesegallery on Instagram. I absolutely adore the cheese gallery for the wonderful assortment of items that they offer in their shop. Make up the perfect gift basket for your family foodie: fantastic unique cheeses, cheese knives, and cool glassware, crunchy crackers and pasta, dried sausage, pate and jelly, sweet eats. They also sell gift baskets, or be the fan-favourite at your holiday party by bringing one of their cheese boards/charcuterie boxes. A must-visit during your shopping for local gifts in Thornbury.
Can be found @sincerelyyoursboutique_ on Instagram. This spot is a card wonderland, with so many funny cards for every occasion, they carry over 17,000 cards! They have handmade Canadian jewelry, cool socks, reading glasses, candles, and even offer helium balloons and gift wrapping services!!
Instagram handle @goldsmithsmarket. Goldsmiths is one of my favourite Thornbury treasures, their Thornbury pie is perfect for every occasion. Load up on tasty baked goods for the holidays or to gift.
@Thornburycraft on Instagram. Thornbury Craft is known for crisp ciders and beers, they also carry an assortment of wines and fun apparel in store!
I cannot forget to mention that there are SO many amazing local restaurants in Thornbury!
A gift card can be a wonderful gift – it supports local shops and provides your friend or family with a meal on you!
Some of my personal favourite restaurants are:
- The Mill
- Bruce Wine Bar
- Winifred’s English Pub
- The Orchid Restaurant
- Thornbury Bakery
- The Corner Cafe and Grill
- Aki Sushi
