A place where choosing unique gifts for those on your nice list is a magical experience full of the twinkling lights, sights, and scents of the season.

Unique gifts abound at The Net Loft. Sweet dreams are made of the handmade, locally designed apparel at Little Dream, where you’ll have your gift covered in something as exquisite as the tan coat pictured here with felt flower pins from Funk Shui (in Railspur District). You simply won’t find a better-crafted apron than those custom- made and ready-to-wear at Search & Rescue Denim Co. Make sure to pick up some gorgeous holiday wrapping paper from Paper-Ya, too, so you can wrap your gifts up in style. Many of Granville Island’s artisans craft their goods onsite in The Railspur District, such as Aurum-Argentum Goldsmiths’ goldsmiths, who are on hand to discuss crafting custom pieces. Aurum-Argentum’s green sapphire ring, pictured here, is sure to warm a loved one’s heart, especially if her hand is wrapped around a one-of-a- kind handcrafted ceramic mug from Kingsmill Pottery Studio (at The Net Loft). Complete your Granville Island holiday shopping tour with a flight of handcrafted spirits at The Liberty Distillery, where premium artisanal spirits are made from organic BC-grown grains, and pick up a bottle of their award-winning Single Grain Trust Whiskey for that single-malt lover on your list. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6oF9VViF_M On a budget? Not to worry, Granville Island has plenty of gifts under $50. You’ll also want to check out Granville Island’s special holiday events. While you’re on the island, don’t forget to stop by The Public Market, where you’ll find everything you need for your holiday table, as well as a great selection of restaurants to stop and enjoy a bite to eat. This year, leave the humbugs at the mall and embrace the holiday spirit at Granville Island.
