Local Holiday Shopping
South Georgian Bay (Local) Gift Guide
Want to find the perfect gift for that special someone in your life? shopping for the holidays can not only be stressful & overwhelming, but dreadful for some. We’ve put together a few fun and local gift ideas that might help you with the holiday shopping.
Mmm baked goods, fresh food, frozen entrees & even fudge! A trip to Ravenna (just south of Clarksburg), is not complete without a stop at the Ravenna Country Market. They even sell cute & cozy pajamas perfect for the kids on Christmas Eve.
You may think the Georgian Christmas store is just open for the holidays, but actually it is open all year long! This boutique store creates the feeling of Christmas all year long by offering unique ornaments, holiday decor and many other holiday gifts. There’s also souvenirs and cute home decor pieces available as well.
Ahh, the ultimate toy store in Downtown Collingwood. Picture the scene in Home Alone 2 where Kevin is visiting “Duncan’s Toy Chest,” it’s that good. This store is so popular that there are actually 5 locations. If you are shopping for the youngsters in your life, a stop at Minds Alive is a must! They carry the latest educational, fun and inspiring toys available and carry a wide variety of toy selection. Can’t decide on a toy? Gift certificates are available as well.
Just stepping inside the Serendipity Candle Factory will make you fall in love with the store, as the smell of soy candles grace your presence. This candle factory is located on Balsam Street in Collingwood and is more than just candles. Chose between home decor items and there is even a “scent station.” If you are looking for something to do during the holiday, candle making workshops are available every day at 3pm! Walk-in’s welcome or you can call to book or book online.
Olive Oil Galore! Lively Olive & Collingwood Olive Oil Co.
Shopping for the foodie in your life? We suggest taking a peek at the Collingwood Olive Oil Co. as well as the Lively Olive. Both located within walking distance of each other. Not only can you purchase many different oils and balsamics, (we’re talking anything from chipote infused olive oil to cranberry balsamic vinegar), both locations have gift baskets, accessories and even items for body care.
