There are so many great reasons to shop locally and shop handcrafted during the Christmas Season….
- 🎁 Shorter transport of your purchase means less environmental impact
- 🎁 You build a personal connection with the person making your gift
- 🎁 It supports a family in your own “backyard”
- 🎁 The products are unique and often one-of-a-kind
- 🎁 Bragging rights… “You like it? It’s made on the Island!”
- 🎁 It just feels darn good and gives you the warm fuzzies!
But it isn’t always easy to find things made locally, and this year it is extra difficult! So many handcrafted markets have been cancelled in 2020, making it trickier to support your local artisans and makers, and find that perfect hand made gift. The good news is that you can now buy almost anything handmade online! AND Island Crafted is here to help make the process easier, offering you over 60 unique locally Island made gift ideas to choose from.
Coming to you from Vancouver Island, Canada – It’s The Locally Crafted Christmas Gift Guide!

With over 60 Canadian-made products for babies, kids, teens, and adults, you’re bound to find that perfect unique gift for everyone on that list.
