For your friend who is local, loves local, and supports local, we've created the perfect gift basket with our faves!
First up is our own house brands! We have to show a little love to the brands that started it all at The Livery Shop in 2014. We love these classic items! The Camp Heritage Toque is a staple in any Calgarian's wardrobe and a total essential for the cold Calgary weather! Our favorite color right now is the festive burgundy which we've included in this guide.

Another favorite from our house brand is the Coutukitsch Belt Bracelet! We love the Rose Gold version of this classic bracelet. Adjustable and totally dainty, anyone can rock this bracelet no matter their personal style.

Next in our local collection is our friends at Playfield. We love these unique bracelets for anyone on our list! Available in three sizes & made with stones ethically sourced from Southeast Asia, it was hard to pick just one! But since we have to, the Amazonite bracelet is a lead contender with it's healing properties. One of the best things about this brand is that with every stone bracelet sold Playfield gives 10% of their profits to Brown Bagging for Calgary Kids. Not only will your friend be looking good but you can feel really good about where your hard-earned money is going!
For the moisturizing addition to our local list, XX Balm is at your service. Made in Vancouver but based in Calgary, these organic lip balms are a local essential, especially during our dry winters. We've chosen our favorite XX Balm, Mer-rah-kee for its wonderful lemongrass and bergamot scent. Give this to your friend and watch them explode with gratitude. #chappedlipsnomore
Mer-rah-kee XX Balm - $8
Next up we wanted to feature these beautful hand-crafted dishes created by From Tree To Sea. Founder Lauren Strybos works locally out of Workshop Studios in Inglewood where she hand makes unique ceramics influenced by her passion for the environment. Treat your friend to a one-of-a-kind peice from this local gem.
From Tree To Sea Dish - $24 In-store Only
To round out our collection, we've added The Neighbourhood Unit map of Inglewood. Though The Neighbourhood Unit is based in Toronto, we can't help but feature this artisanal map of our favorite community in Calgary. Give your friend this little piece of art that holds a little piece of our heart.
