From budget-friendly gems under $100 to luxe splurges over $100, plus expert picks and special finds from The Cross, we've curated the ultimate gift guide for everyone on your list.
Consider us your shop-local elves: we’ve spent countless hours scouring the city’s best shops, grilling the gift-giving pros and thinking outside the (literal) box to make sure you’ve got something amazing for everyone this holiday season.
We all know it already, but sometimes in the last-minute present panic we can forget that you don’t need to spend a lot to make someone’s holiday dreams come true. Here are our best budget-friendly picks that’ll still spark a million-dollar smile.
Sometimes you’ve just gotta splash out. But just because something costs a pretty penny, that doesn’t mean it’s designed to delight. So we’ve combed the city for the best-value splurges: from wear-everyday earrings to live-in-’em linen pajamas.
We grilled Vancouver’s savviest tastemakers about our biggest gift-giving challenges—and they delivered the perfect shopping list. Thank you to the coolest Santas we know.
From glam glassware to charming tchotchkes and festive scents, these thoughtful gifts will please even the hard-to-buy-for on your list. Celebrating its 20th anniversary, we asked Stephanie Vogler, president and creative director of The Cross, to share her top gift picks for the season.
The options for make-’em-smile gifts are almost endless when it comes to your littlest giftees. But whether you’re shopping for an architect-in-training or the sticker enthusiast on your list, these picks are all kid-approved… and quiet enough for parents to love, too.
No, your cat and dog do not know it’s the season of giving. That said, they do give you unconditional love all year long. (Also vet bills and poop to clean up… but hey, who’s counting?) Here are the best gifts to treat your pet with in 2023.
