For my last gift guide of the season I wanted to make sure all the wonderful Canadian companies out there were not forgotten. With the economy the way it is, it is even more important that we support local business and Canadian companies. That is why I partnered with Miss Boss to bring you some fabulous Canadian brands you can shop for right here in Edmonton!
Hope you enjoy! xo
Found in Vancouver, this beautiful leather line receives inspiration from the medieval era. With beautiful patterns and unique designs Jennifer Yau binds functionality with style for classic pieces that are made from recycled leather. I personally am in love with this line and both the King & Bishop handbags are on my Christmas list!
Matt & Nat is one of my favourite lines, not only because it is Canadian but because it is a vegan line made from recycled material. Montreal based, Matt & Nat create on the premise of functionality and style, both of which they exceed all expectation in! I love the variety of their line and the stunning colours, you are sure to find a bag that fits your personality and your wardrobe with this fab collection!

This luxurious line up of all natural products was originally founded in Toronto. Out of the need to provide women with the ability to have glowing skin without having to compromise the health of their body, Stacey developed a beautiful line up of body products that smell unbelievable!! My favourite scents include Pear & L to R: Love Fresh Deodorant, Body Scrub, Body Wash & Body Lotion
I love this line, one of my favourite jackets of all time was designed by BB Dakota and it has become a staple in my life! They mend functionality and quality with style for beautifully designed pieces at a great price!
A Saskatchewan Native blends unique structure and texture to create beautiful pieces to compliment any wardrobe!
I am obsessed with their scarf line and have continued to fall in love with their collection! Julia creates pieces inspired by her grandparents love story and she seems to hit a home run on every piece!
Originally started 10 years ago, Gentle Fawn has continued to grow and lead the Canadian fashion industry! Their variety of patterns and styles allows for a fun blend of contemporary pieces that compliment any shape of women. Ive become a huge fan of this company since first being introduced at Miss Boss and will continue to support such a well designed, quality line!

I recently purchased my first Coal & Canary candle and I seriously cannot get enough! This company was created by two best friends who saw a gap in the market for quality, hand made candles. Each batch is hand poured and made only from the highest quality vegetable and soy blends. I purchased the All I Want Fir Xmas and it is by far the best scent in my house! Oh and another reason I love this candle, if you listen quietly you can hear a crackle from the wooden wick!
