more than ever, it's important to support local Canadian businesses, especially with the lockdowns taking place across the country. And since it's been a chaotic year (to say the least), we're super behind on our gift shopping.

But it's totally fine, because our gift giving will just be a little delayed! So, here are a couple of our favourite Canadian brands to support right now (and, honestly, all year long). Plus, most of these brands offer online shopping to keep things extra safe.

Bathe beautifully with Bathorium, an Ottawa based company that creates luxurious bath products free of any harsh chemicals, phthalates and parabens. Their bath bombs will leave you feeling rejuvenated, relaxed, and restored. My personal favourite is the
Ancient Oat Hydration Bath Crush Soak!

Bee Kind is a Vancouver-based company that specializes in beeswax wraps. I have tried my fair share, and boy, oh, boy, do I love these ones the best. Not only are they made in Canada, but they're a lot thicker and more mouldable than the other versions I've tried. The design is also painted by the founders mom, which, if we're being honest, is the cutest thing I've heard in my life.

100 Years of Love are high-quality, hand-poured, conscious candles that are made in Toronto's Distillery District. I get a headache from fake smelling candles, so I love the fact that these candles are made with the best ingredients because they don't give me headaches! I highly recommend
Bedtime Story and For the Love of Gold.

Indulge in some lavender-infused products for the home & body. Purple Hill Lavender Farm is a small, family-run lavender farm located in the beautiful rolling hills of Creemore, Ontario. Their popular
Essential Oil Room Spray is made with all-natural ingredients and only pure essential oils.

Knix is a Toronto-based brand specializing in bras, undies, and everything comforable. Before I got my hands on
these, I thought that period underwear were gonna feel like adult diapers, which is not my vibe. I am happy to report that they are nothing like that. Oh, and they have some seriously dreamy loungewear sets, too!

Release your inner goddess with Good Goddess products, like the Fantastic Fat MCT Oil or the Sedatonic Calming Ashwagandha Tincture. Good Goddess was started in Toronto and aims to take the confusion out of getting healthy. I'm currently obsessed with
FAT LIP, an all natural plant-based lip plumper.

Optimize your skin health from the inside out with Bend Beauty, a Nova Scotia-based brand that offers premium skin health supplements and a marine collagen that improves hair and nail health. All I want for Christmas is magic and healthy skin with the help of
Marine Collagen + Co-Factors.
@seannespa / Via
Ste. Anne's Spa is Canada's largest destination spa located in Grafton, Ontario. The property grounds and spa facilities are luxurious. Plus, they have their own natural line of beauty care. I love the
Mint Mist Floral Water because it feels like you're bringing the spa home.
@felonycase / Via
Dress up your phone for any occasion with Felony Case. There are tons of different colours and styles to choose from — plus, they're all designed in Toronto. My phone currently has the
neon pink case, so I never misplace it.
@envello_linens / Via
Wake up feeling amazing in Envello sheets and linens. Canadian designed and crafted with care in Portugal, this linen company is all about good mornings! After all, the best feeling in the world is cuddling up in high quality sheets fresh out of the dryer. I have these fluffy
towels and I can't wait to purchase more.
@communitymasks / Via
Stay safe and give back to the community with masks from Community Masks. For every face mask sale $1.00 is donated to
Food Banks Canada. The clean pouch and dirty pouch are perfect for keeping your masks organized (or just not losing your masks!)

This Vancouver-based company specialized in sustainably made sheets that look just as good as they feel. From breezy sheets to flannel duvet covers, they really do it all. I have a set and can confirm they're a dream to sleep on.
Midnight Paloma / Via
Do your body good with some skincare goodies from Midnight Paloma. It uses clean ingredients, but the products won't run you broke (which is something I really love). I'm a big fan of the
cleansing balm and would recommend it to anyone who wears waterproof makeup (it melts it off like a dream).
@peacecollective / Via
Peace Collective's line of simple, oh-so-comfy loungewear will make you want to ditch denim for good. They regularly launch cool capsule collections, like their
PlayStation capsule, so you'll always find something that matches your vibe. A portion of every sale is donated a charitable cause (like CAMH, the UN Refugee Agency, and Food Banks of Canada), so you can feel good knowing you're giving back to the community.
@blume / Via
Blume is a female-founded Vancouver brand that caters to people who love
skincare as much as they love self-care. Their offerings include everything from cleansers to jade rollers, and their packaging is really! freaking! adorable!

Live a healthier life with Attitude. Founded in Montreal, all of their products are made with natural, plant- and mineral-based ingredients that have won't hurt our families or the planet. I bring my
Lemon Leaves Hand Sanitizer with me everywhere.

Peppermint Halo, that'll help eliminate even the toughest migraines.
@designmehair / Via
This Montreal-based brand is all about tackling common hair issues (like brassiness and frizz), without any harmful chemicals or animal by-products. Their
PUFF.Me volumizing dust took Instagram by storm and the rest of their bright, fun lineup isn't far behind — for good reason! Whether it's a hairspray with adjustable hold or a hemp-derived serum that'll give your locks a glass-like shine, you can't go wrong with any of their fab products.

Show your winter hair some love with AG Hair products. They manufacture high quality hair products that are made without salt, paba, and parabens. AG Hair has been manufacturing hair care products in Vancouver since in 1989. They just started making
hand sanitizer that smells heavenly and clean!
