This year has been tough for all businesses, but especially so for local small businesses. Many have had to shut their doors due to financial constraints caused by the global pandemic. While we’ve been extremely fortunate to have the strength of our #smashtessfam behind us, we wanted to also highlight other small, Vancouver-born businesses that you can shop this holiday season!
Just because we’re getting close to Christmas, doesn’t mean you can’t still support local! Like us, these businesses are offering local pick up on their orders to ensure you can still grab some last-minute items in time for Christmas! Check out a few of our fave female-run Vancouver businesses below!
Brunette the Label
We couldn’t make a last-minute gift guide without including our friends Brunette the Label. If you’re looking for comfy sweats, hoodies or stocking stuffers, they have a great collection to choose from! They offer local pick up by appointment at their showroom in Vancouver!
If you’re looking for something that sparkles check out our friends at Melanie Auld. Not only are they one of our faves, but Melanie Auld is a Jillian Harris fave too! You might remember, but we were BOTH in Jillian’s first ever Jilly Box! They are offering next day curbside pick-up AND in-store shopping by appointment. If you’d like to learn more about Melanie Auld, make sure to check our #smashtessgirl feature on her in our blog!
Another one of our favourite, local jewelry companies is Leah Alexandra. Not only are they offering contactless curbside pickups, but if you aren’t sure what you’re looking for yet, they also offer appointments for COVID-friendly in-studio shopping! And check out our #smashtessgirl feature on Leah!
Clean skincare products for us and our little ones are important. We love that K’pure makes clean products locally! From face mists, bath soaks to baby gift boxes, K’pure Naturals has all the clean products you could ask for! They offer local pick up for your Christmas orders. They are located just outside of Vancouver, in Mission, BC.
Another option for clean skincare products is So Luxury. Focusing on baby products and bath soaks, this is a fun brand to pick up some stocking stuffers from! Local pick-up is available at their warehouse in Vancouver, Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm.
Can’t decide on a present? Well, you can’t go wrong with the beautiful floral creations made by Alice de Crom and the team of Floralista. Nestled in the cutest little nook of Fort Langley, you have the option of bouquets, plants, and a selection of gifts! You can either go in to shop, or they do offer curbside pick-up Monday through Saturday.
If it’s Smash + Tess you’re after, don’t fret! We are offering curbside pick-up from December 16 - December 23! Just choose this option at checkout! You can find more information here. Happy shopping!
