10 Edmonton Crafted Items to Fit into Your Stockings this Christmas

VIA : @hansendistillery / @dogdoggoose / @farmgirlknit / @easttowestcreative / @jacekchocolate / @gpmakeup

From socks to nibble-worth chocolates and heck yes even adult beverages, these little cute items are all things I’d love to find in my stocking. And if you’re on the nice list this year, maybe Santa will be filling your stockings with them!

When I was growing up, one of my absolute favourite parts of the holidays was just opening up stockings Christmas morning. It was never anything big, just practical little things we could always use. I truly appreciate these items more so now than ever!

Supporting local during the holidays is one of the most magical things you can do. It truly makes everything a bit better for those of us in the #YEG. Plus I think giving something local is a full circle gift, here’s my top picks of local Edmonton made products you can gift out this holiday season. (Plus, I personally know some of the amazing humans behind these products; they’re all busting their butts to put out their best work.) - @mariah.mae

Have you heard?! MY SKIN BY @gpmakeup 🥂🥂🥂 I am so happy to finally share this secret project with you all. And let me tell you ... it did not happen overnight. Skincare is something that I have become extremely passionate about over the past few years. Growing up I dealt with the struggles of extreme acne, which truly dampened by confidence as a teenager. Years later I have learnt not only how to take care of my skin, but I’ve learnt to love MY SKIN. So what’s unique about #MYSKINBYGPMAKEUP ? 💫 Plant Based 💫 100% natural 💫 Sulfate and Paraben Free 💫 Locally Made And by local... I mean I’ve teamed up with @essentialsbynature to create this amazing line. Everything is hand made right here in Edmonton in small batches. So not only are you supporting TWO local businesses, but you are also treating your skin to products that are made fresh to order. Available in store and online while supplies last!

TOKEN BITTERS - Handcrafted artisanal bitter





Why #Edmonton?? 🏙️⁠ ⁠ Edmonton's culture and character is entrepreneurial. Did you know that about 95% of businesses in #yeg are small businesses? From the creation of Token Bitters to the present, we have gotten so much support from the local #yegbusiness community. ⁠ ⁠ The Hype is a media project developed by @howl.marketing that highlights individuals developing a unique path for themselves in commerce, art and culture within Edmonton and the surrounding area. We had so much fun working with them on this interview!⁠ ⁠ Watch Keenan's full interview with @thehypeyeg here: https://www.thehypeyeg.com/feature/tokenbitters/ or follow the link in our bio. ⁠ ⁠ ⁠

EDMONTON!!! Once again I am blown away by the love and dedication you all show for supporting the Maker community! 🥰 . Another Make It Show is in the books and we shattered personal records this weekend, EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. My heart is full of love and whatever bodily organ is in charge of gratitude is absolutely overflowing as well! My stock bins are going to need a BIG, big restock before we head to Kelowna for Craft Culture in December, and I have a daunting stack of orders to crush off before Christmas, but I could not be more excited to get back in the workshop tomorrow. My body is tired but my soul is energized! 🌟 . Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! 🙏❤️🎉 . . . Holiday Fringed Flannel in XL/XXL purchased this weekend at @makeitshow (This pattern is sold out - but stay tuned for new patterns coming very soon!!) 📷: @rkphoto_ . #dogdoggoose #itsadogslife #mountaindog #dogsofcanada #doglife #dogsarethebest #yegdogs #healthydog #dogphotography #animalsco #iflmdog #insta_dogs #spoileddog #inspiredbypets #dogsrule #mustlovedogs #dogmom #mydog #adogslife #happypup #makeitshow #makeitedmonton #makeitcalgary #handmadeisbest #handmadeisbetter #yegmade #marchmeetthemaker #meetthemaker #meetthemakerweek

Advent Calendars! Do you use them? What are your favourite types? . As a kid I remember that other than homemade ones, the basic $1.99 chocolate ones were all that was available. We also had handmade white cotton ones with Christmas pictures that you got to colour with fabric markers each day, and then at the end of the season my mom could wash them so that we got to do it all again the next year! . Now it seems there are advent calendars for literally anything you could imagine! Dog treats, cosmetics, Lego, and tea! I used to get the DavidsTea one every year, but this year I'm trying something new with the @teapigsca one! I can't speak for what's inside the doors yet since it's not December, but so far the packaging seems much more recyclable/compostable, which I love. . Are you following an advent calendar this year? What is the theme? . . . Anduril BT Collars in Navy and Yellow with Chocolate Brown 💙💛 . #dogdoggoose #canadianmade #handmadeisbetter #dogsofthepnw #dalmatiansofinstagram #traildog #edmontonmade #girlswithdogs #dogismycopilot #adventureswithdogs #doglife #dogmomlife #furchild #canadiandogs #supportlocal #supporthandmade #beyourownboss #rawfeddog #dogswhohike #hikingwithdogs

FARM GIRL KNIT - Hand knitted goods from an Alberta farm girl





This is how excited I feel after my market this weekend! 🤩 . . In case my face isn’t spelling it out enough, things went great! I’m pretty new to the whole market thing so I had low expectations going in but you guys blew me away! 💕 . . Not only did I have TONS of my amazing friends and family come out (you guys are the BEST!) but I had loads of people who recognized me from my Instagram or just stopped to appreciate my knitting or say a kind word! 😘 . . I can definitely say this won’t be my last market cause I had a blast! But ya I just wanted to say thank you and let everyone know I’m so appreciative of you supporting my dream! Even if you’re just liking or commenting on my photos, it means the world!
