After the hectic past few years, it’s become clear that supporting local brands and businesses is absolutely vital if we want them to stick around. This holiday season, before you hit “place your order” on your Amazon cart, consider supporting a few Canadian brands! Whether your loved ones are fitness fanatics, skin-care junkies or just beginning their self-care journey, Canadian makers have something for everyone on your list. —Vita Daily
