What a year it’s been….2020…. if ever there was a year to shop locally and shop small, this is it! They say every time you purchase from a small business, the owner does a little happy dance. How many happy dances are you going to generate this holiday season?
If you’re anything like me, then you find filling those stockings the hardest part of the gift giving season. The creatives of Island Crafted are here to help! Handcrafted goods make perfect locally sourced stocking stuffer ideas because they are often small, affordable, fun, and unique.
The Island Crafted Stocking Stuffer gift guide is my favourite holiday shopping guide to put together, filled with 50 fun stocking stuffer ideas (or affordable Secret Santa or Gift Ninja ideas) for babies, kids, teens, and adults, all made locally on Vancouver Island or the Gulf Islands! And most of the handcrafted items listed here are under $20!
Of course, all the images listed are just the tip of the iceburg! Click the caption to be taken to the maker’s full profile to learn more about their small business, see more images, and find out how to purchase. Click the filters at the top to display results for babies, kids, teens, and adults, and also to filter by specific areas of Vancouver Island
Happy shopping and thank you for supporting local!
