Poppy Barley

301-10359 104 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 1B9

Women across Canada are going nuts for this Edmonton custom shoe company, with pop-ups in Calgary, Vancouver and Toronto. The company, which focuses on creating made-to-measure, ethical footwear, has recently expanded their line to include a few accessories, such as beautiful wristlets. While a pair of Foxhunt boots may be a bit pricey for a gift ($498), their leather wristlets or an upcycled leather tassel necklace make a glamorous, reasonably priced gift. When in doubt, they do sell gift cards, as well.

Who Cares Wear Ltd

11222 Jasper Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5K 2V2

This clothing boutique has locations downtown and on the south side, giving shoppers plenty of opportunities to check out their amazing selection of clothing and accessories. The long list of brands that they carry includes Barefoot Venus, House of Harlow, Mackage, Trust Fund Beauty, Alice and Olivia, J Brand, and Elizabeth and James. They offer personal shopping, so the expert staff can help you find the ideal scarf, bag or pair of shoes for your chic sister-in-law.

Kate Spade

2850-8882 170 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5T 4J2

The arrival of a Kate Spade store at West Edmonton Mall is one of the best things to ever happen to fashion gals in this city. Their website includes a gift guide, with price points of under $200, under $100 and under $50, making browsing a breeze. The store is beautifully organized and not at all cluttered, making shopping in person easy, as well. Pick out a polka dot clutch, whimsical apron, wine tote, cocktail shaker, shiny business card holder or fun travel mug for a gift your pals will always cherish.

Jacek Chocolate Couture

10140 104 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 1A7

Yes, it’s a chocolate shop but it’s still a fabulous place to pick out a gift or two for the fashionistas on your Christmas shopping list. The concept behind Jacek is linking chocolate with couture and fashion by naming each decadent chocolate bar after a famous fashionable figure in history, such as Marilyn Monroe, Jackie Kennedy or Audrey Hepburn. They even have a Christmas-themed “The Claus” bar, which is white chocolate infused with peppermint oil and pieces of candy cane. Santa Claus may not be a traditional fashion icon but he is well-known for his outfit, right?

Shades Of Grey

10116 124 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5N 1P6

Located on 124 Street, this chic clothing boutique is a wonderful spot to pick up a beautiful sweater or bag for your fashion-loving sister. They also sell jewellery and a few random (but awesome!) products, including gorgeous water bottles from S’well and Bubi, plus Joco cups. I’ve found some of my favourite pieces of jewellery here, including a beloved rose gold love knot bracelet from local designer Orange Avocado.

Red Ribbon Gifts Inc

B-12520 102 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5N 0M3

This eclectic shop is a fun place to browse through and pick out gifts – the hardest part is resisting picking up a few things for yourself! They carry a great mix of clothing, accessories and footwear. Their jewellery – particularly the gorgeous Mantraband bracelets in gold, rose gold and silver – make beautiful gifts. Another fabulous find is the stunning spirit animal necklaces from Jaeci, featuring round metallic discs with cut outs of animals, such as cats, foxes, owls and dogs.

Oak & Fort Corp

19-5015 111 St Nw, Edmonton, AB T6H 4M6

Based in Vancouver, this cute store has opened a location in Southgate Centre. Their website helpfully offers a gift guide organized into price categories (under $200, under $100 and under $50), making it a breeze to narrow down your selections. Or, you could browse in person and peruse their collections of scarves, jewellery, hats, shoes, belts, outerwear, dresses, jumpsuits and more. Their clothing is designed to be timeless and not focused on trends, making it an ideal gift for the friend who appreciates quality.

Workhall Boutique

B-10137 104 Street NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 0Z9

This unique shop houses work done by a community of local designers. They sell clothing for men and women, as well as jewellery. You’ll find stuff here that you literally can’t find anywhere else, including gorgeous necklaces, rings, earrings and bracelets, all perfect gifts for your favourite fashion-forward friend who already owns “everything.”

Whether you’re shopping for a wee babe or yourself, is there anything cozier than a onesie? Perfect for camping trips or hanging out at home on the couch (or in the crib),onesies are versatile and comfy – plus, is there anything a baby looks cuter in? These stores sell the most adorable onesies on the market. [Image credit: iStock.com/martinedoucet]
Kombucha tea, a slightly bubbly fermented drink made with a green or black tea base, is a sweet but healthy alternative to pop. Makers claim it can aid in digestive health, plus it just tastes fantastic. Often made from organic, raw ingredients, kombucha teas have exploded in popularity in the past decade. These Edmonton shops carry a variety of brands, including some Canuck favourites.
Linens may seem like a boring thing to purchase, but, if you search the right shops, you can find the most plush, decadent bath towels and pretty kitchen linens you’ll ever see. Having high quality bath towels is essential for a happy life and lovely kitchen linens – well, that just makes your kitchen all the more beautiful and fun.
