Still shopping for the holidays? Finding unique gifts should be a joy, but it can often be a chore--especially if you're shopping for someone who "has it all" or someone you don't know very well.  Use these Vancouver shopping guides to find great gifts for everyone on your shopping list!

  • Unique Vancouver Gifts - From specialty foods and drink-- including artisan sake from Granville Island, local beer or a goodie bag full of Pacific Northwest flavours--to gifts for Canucks-lovers and Vancouver history buffs (who'll love MOV's new Vancouver-history pillows, pictured above), Vancouver has lots of options for unique gifts your friends and family can't find anywhere else in the world.
  • Vancouver's Top 10 Places to Shop for Gifts -  Top spots for gift-shopping in Vancouver include Granville Island, Wonderbucks (for inexpensive gifts and stocking stuffers), Peking Lounge in Chinatown for China-chic home decor, and Oscar's Art Books on Broadway and Granville (ideal for book-lovers and art-lovers of every kind).
  • Vancouver Christmas & Holiday Markets - Find lovely gifts at Vancouver's Christmas Markets, including divine gingerbread and tons of gorgeous German Christmas ornaments at the Vancouver Christmas Market (on through December 24).
  • Kids' Christmas & Holiday Gifts - From toys to clothes and electronics, my Guide to Vancouver Christmas for Kids and Families includes a section on top places to shop for kids in Vancouver.
  • Vancouver's Best Baby Stores - Have a new baby or new parent on your shopping list? Vancouver's top independent baby stores have lots of fabulous products to choose from, including baby clothes, toys, and accessories.

Charitable giving is a lovely gift, too. Save-On-Meats has a new token program that allows you to buy tokens for the $2.25 Save on Meats Breakfast Sandwich; you can give out the tokens yourself of purchase them online for Save-On-Meats to distribute locally. You can also give to a very worthy charity by buying your Christmas tree from Aunt Leah's Place, where all proceeds go toward preventing youth homelessness.
