Now, more than ever it’s important to support our local community. Not only can supporting local directly impact one person, a family or a local community, but when you support local, you’ll often receive unique and meaningful pieces that are hard to find at larger retailers.
On that note, I’ve put together a short Ontario-based small business gift guide that you can use for any occasion. Keep reading to learn more about some amazing small businesses that you can support.
Nurture with Botanics
The heart of Nurture with Botanics lies with a focus on simplicity and intentional living.

Dare I say the most amazing hair oil on the market! Founded by top hair professional Morgan Tully, THIC is about more than just amazing hair. Their mission is to create products that focus on your HAIR HEALTH and embracing your natural texture – bringing your hair back to life by promoting hair growth and stopping breakage.

Rikki Marcone – Floral Designer
Pampas grass, bunny tails and other dried foliage is all the rage right now, and for good reason. I personally think the gift of a dried flower arrangement is perfect, not only because they are beautiful, but because they last forever. At Rikki Marcone Floral & Event Design Studio, their mission is to provide artistic and unique floral pieces that create memorable aesthetic experiences for your senses. Visit their website and shop online here.
Spirit Roots Company
Lastly, gifting a unique piece that brings good vibes would be any wellness enthusiasts dream. Ethically sourced and handmade crystal jewellery is Spirit Roots Companys’ mission, bringing a little extra sparkle into your daily lives. Visit their Etsy Store here.
Gifting services is also another thoughtful gift. With a quick Google search or word of mouth recommendation, you can find a local service provider in a field of interest to the recipient. Here are some suggestions:
- Passes to a local yoga studio (virtual or in-person)
- Sessions with a local nutrition coach
- Online meditation sessions with a certified meditation teacher
