If you’re looking for Christmas gifts that are more from-the-heart than cookie cutter, Vancouver’s North Shore is the place to shop! Known for a vibrant arts scene, there are a wealth of art galleries and independent stores to buy local, handmade, and one-of-a-kind gifts for your friends and family this Christmas.

Here are our recommendations of where to look for unique gifts.
 

The Ferry Building Gallery

 

The Ferry Building Gallery is a beauty to see in itself as West Vancouver’s first heritage buildings. The Gallery supports emerging and established North Shore artists throughout the year by hosting their exhibitions, but through mid-November to December it becomes a gift shopping destination at their Great Gifts exhibition! Shop unique gifts including fine artwork, crafts, and handmade items from local artists.        

 
 

Zing Paperie & Design

   

Zing Paperie & Design is a cute and airy stationery shop located in The Village at Park Royal. In the boutique you’ll find designer cards, paper goods, and treasures from designers around the world.

 
 

The Polygon Gallery

 

 
The Polygon Shop offers a carefully selected range of products informed by the photographic sphere, in addition to design-focused homeware, jewelry, and gifts. Products are crafted by individual makers and collectives local to Vancouver and the North Shore, and sit alongside established international brands. Best of all, when you purchase from The Polygon Shop you are supporting the gallery’s exhibitions and programs. Gallery members get 10% off their purchase!

 

A’hoy

 A’hoy is an effortlessly cool shop with Pacific North West vibes in the picturesque village of Deep Cove. Inside you’ll find Vancouver brands gone big like Herschel and Reigning Champ. But, for something really unique check out their own brand A’hoy Goods, a range of shirts, caps, and drinking vessels that represent their hometown of Deep Cove and the North Shore.  

 
 

Giftworks Boutique

 
 
Giftworks in Edgemont Village are proud to have a gift for every occasion! Inside you’ll find locally-made pottery, art-glass, jewellery, specialty baby items, gourmet foods, paintings, and cards from local and Canadian artisans.
