Holiday Shopping Guide: 3 Amazing Last Minute Canadian Etsy Finds

Love the look and convenience of this antibacterial hand sanitizer bundle by Jiro Soap in Vancouver, British Columbia. What's also pretty cool? You get to customize the order by picking the scent and colour of each bottle. Check it out here. 


I'm noticing a bit of a theme with my Christmas gift ideas...can you tell I'm a little anxious about COVID right now?? Well...these pretty little masks by Etsy shop Colour Pop TO are so fricken cute...I guess if we have to be in lock down we may as well be sporting a face mask in style right? Check them out here. 



What's on your last minute Christmas shopping list?
