Shop local: Our favourite spots to buy gifts on 104th Street
It’s easy to shop local when you live in a place like Edmonton. The city is full of gems for local gifts, and 104th street is basically bursting at the seams with ideas. We’re sure you can find something for everyone on your Christmas list this year.
Here are six of our favourite places to buy gifts on 104th street.
10187 104th Street, Edmonton
Habitat Etc. is full of fantastic gift ideas, many of which are made by local makers. You’re sure to find something for everyone on your list here, but here are a couple of our top picks:
Our pick: Personalized gift bags
Habitat Etc. really takes the work out of gift giving with these personalized gift baskets, tailored for anyone on your gift list. The baskets will include things from their great collection of artisanal goods, like candles, cocktail bitters, jewelry, home decor, and skin care.
10111 - 104 Street, Edmonton
There are few people in the city who know wine and whiskey like the folks at deVine, and they’ll always help you choose the perfect bottle for anyone on your gift list.
Our pick: Wine tastings
If you’re looking for a more experiential gift than a bottle of wine or whiskey, consider gifting one of their wine tastings. We recommend their Best of the Year tasting.
10130 104 Street, Edmonton
For the culinarily inclined (or those who want to be), Evoolution’s gourmet olive oils and vinegars are easy and impressive gifts. Check out their Recipes to get some inspiration.
Our pick: Custom cedar gift box
Choose your own or let the experts at Evoolution recommend their picks. We love the Garlic Olive Oil & Mission Fig Dark Balsamic for salads and bread dipping, and the Wild Mushroom & Sage Olive Oil and Neapolitan Herb Balsamic Vinegar for pasta.
#2, 10169 104 Street, Edmonton
We all know that one person who LOVES cheese. Cavern has you covered.
Our pick: Cheese school
What better gift to give a cheese lover than a cheese tasting? Cavern’s team of experts offer two-hour Cheese School workshops and pairings. Their 2019 tickets go on sale the first week of December and they tend to sell out, so grab your tickets early.
10140-104th Street, Edmonton
We couldn’t list great gifts on 104th street without mentioning Jacek Chocolate.
We always recommend their sipping chocolate as a stocking stuffer, but you really can’t go wrong with any of their collections for anyone on your gift list.
If you’ve got a real chocolate aficionado to buy for, we recommend buying tickets to one of their chocolate tasting events. The Coffee, Tea and Chocolate pairing event takes place at Credo on 124 Street and is a fantastic experience to give.
6. The Helm
10125 104 Street, Edmonton
Come on, you knew we were going to include ourselves. If you haven’t checked out our 2018 gift guide yet, that’s a great place to start. Here are a couple of other favourites that are sure to impress.
A suede glove is a fantastic gift choice. It’s not an item someone will often think to buy themselves, but it is a luxury gift that won’t be forgotten anytime soon. These gloves come in both navy and tan.
We adore Vuarnet, and we’re sure anyone on your gift list will, too. Many of their frames are in unisex sizing, so don’t just limit these options to the men on your list. These pilot glasses look great on anyone.___
