NoMiNoU’s Shop Local Gift Guide

This just in: Christmas is 10 days away! In case you haven’t finished — or even started — your holiday shopping yet, we’ve put together a curated gift guide to help you track down some one-of-a-kind presents made right here in Metro Vancouver. We love to support local businesses, so we encourage you to skip the impersonal gift cards and wrap up some of these homegrown options instead!


For the Style Superstar

Steph Wrap Black White Web
The fashionista you’re shopping for will love the combo of style and function found in our Steph Black Wrap scarves. Not only is it the perfect transitional scarf for the spring and fall, but it does double duty in the summertime as a gorgeous bathing suit wrap. And no need to worry about it getting wet at the beach, as our fabrics are printed using high quality methods to ensure the colours won’t bleed. Inspired by our Steph artwork collection, the scarf’s black, white and grey colour palette makes it versatile enough to be paired with any outfit!

For the Glam Girl

In need of something to impress the beauty junkie on your list? Surprise her with some goodies from Sangre de Fruta, a local skincare brand that takes its cue from the ancient beauty regimens of the Egyptians (including Miss Cleopatra herself!) We love that all of Sangre’s products are made with nothing but organic and wild botanical ingredients, many of them sourced locally. From decadent body creams to facial oils to skin tonics, each product is scented with 100% natural fragrances: Lavender By The Sea is made with lavender sourced from nearby Salt Spring Island, while Rose No. 1 contains rose otto oil, which is steam distilled from roses cultivated in mountainous regions in Bulgaria. As we said, guaranteed to impress!


For the Fitness Fanatic

Help your cardio junkie friends elevate their gym swag by giving them a pair of our brand new Eagle leggings, which have a super striking First Nations design. The newest addition to our Spirit Collection, the Eagle print was created in collaboration with local Gitxsan artist Shar Wilson and comes in black/gold and black/silver combinations that will most definitely stand out, whether worn to yoga class, SoulCycle, or even out and about!


For Your Bohemian Bestie

Spirit Sister reiki aromatherapy from our gift guide

Know someone who could do with a bit of chakra rebalancing? Spirit Sister‘s line of reiki-charged crystal aromatherapy sprays will most certainly do the trick. Completely vegan and handcrafted with all-natural ingredients, the line is made up of nine creative blends: Awaken, Balance, Connect, Create, Embrace, Express, Flow, Manifest, and Release. Spirit Sister’s entire collection is free from chemicals and preservatives, and contains only filtered alkaline water and premium essential oils in beautiful combinations like cedarwood, rose geranium and ylang ylang. Take a whiff!

For Every Woman On Your List

Jules Feather White FL Lifestyle from our gift guide
If there’s one gift in this gift guide that’s one-size-fits-all, it’s the Jules Feather leggings. Ladies of every age, from Millenials to Moms, will love this distinctive print that works with every ensemble. Pair it with a cozy sweater and some boots for a slick streetwear look, or throw on a hoodie and sneakers before your next sweat session — this versatile design is just as suited for daywear as it is for the gym!
