December has arrived, meaning the annual season of giving is upon us. It’s time to slip into your favourite ugly sweater, decorate the tree and indulge in some classic holiday tunes.
When you’re doing your annual holiday shopping this year, why not shop local? You’ll be supporting your friends and neighbours while also investing money back into your local economy. We often don’t realize this, but our dollars have so much power to do good. When you choose to spend local, you can find amazing gifts on your doorstep that help support small businesses, keep jobs in our communities, and smiles on your loved one’s faces.
We know that picking out gifts can be hard work. That’s why we’ve gathered ideas and inspiration for your holiday gift buying on our BC Marketplace, broken down by region of the province.
We put our best Elves on the job, so check out the businesses below and get Holiday ready with Small Business BC, and the BC Marketplace.
