Introducing our holiday gift guide-- with a twist. We’ve put together a bunch of great ideas to help you shop for amazing products and services from Grey Rock AND our neighbours here in downtown Guelph. Supporting local is a value that’s near and dear to our hearts; it’s a way to give back to the community while giving awesome, unique gifts to anyone on your shopping list.
We can’t wait to help you find the perfect gifts this year and we’re excited to introduce you to some of our local business friends.
1. Gifts for The Homebody
Even if you’re more of a social butterfly, we’re all staying home a little bit more this year. Make staying home fun and comfortable for your friends and family with a good book from the Bookshelf, some cozy clothes from Grey Rock, a scented candle, or a houseplant from Blooms and Flora to purify the air and add a touch of nature to their home.
2. Gifts for The One Who Loves the Outdoors
As the saying goes, “there’s no such thing as bad weather- only unsuitable clothing.” Give them the gift of layers, with one of our Patagonia Puff Jackets or a pair of really good socks, and a reusable thermos from Market Fresh to keep their drinks hot in sub-zero temperatures.
3. Gifts for The One Who Loves to Practice Self-Care
It’s been a tough, stressful year; let them know they deserve a little pampering with a gift that reminds them to take some much needed time. Think, handmade bath bombs and soaps from The Sage Soap Company, soft Organic Cotton Basics from Grey Rock that they’ll feel great wearing, or a gift card for a sweet treat from Wellington Cakes, to give them all the calm, soothing vibes.
4. Gifts for The One Who's Working From Home
Working from home presents a set of unique challenges. Help make life a little easier for them with some soft stretchy pants and professional tops for Zoom calls, items for the home office from Wyndham Art Supplies, or gift cards for lunch or coffee at Miijidaa or Capistrano for the days they just have to get out of the house.
5. Gifts for The True Canadian
Encourage their true patriot love with some Canadian-made products like one of our leather wallets by the Populess Co., a mug made by a local artisan, or a some awesome homegrown/designed products like the Lucky Iron Fish, this Sweater or a unique and eco-conscious Cork Backpack.
