When you’re looking for the finest holiday gifts (and want to check everyone off your list in one fell swoop), there’s no better destination than Vancouver’s Fine Finds. Clothing, jewelry, bath and body—you name it, this boutique’s got it in spades. Our guide, below, highlights the best in store for the festive season (read: what we’d like to open Christmas morning!). Not in town? No worries; the online shop is always open, and shipping free for Canadian orders over $150 (excluding taxes). —Noa Nichol
ornaments. Sparkly bottles of burgers, bubbly and even avocado toast, Fine Finds has the cutest ornaments ever, by brand Abbot and others.
stocking stuffers. A “Bling” ring dish to keep track of our stacks, Patchology sheet mask singles, Corkcicle stemless wine glasses to keep all our holiday drinks cold, handy red wine stain remover (a must), “snooze” bath bombs for better sleep, beautiful Butter London nail lacquers, a sweetheart ceramic spoon—all the perfect stocking stuffers are in store.
under the tree. Here’s hoping for a throw blanket by Avoca—an Irish weaving company with a centuries-old history—or the Match shoulder bag by Mat & Nat (vegan and very chic!). Also on our big-ticket list: a boxed set of floral socks by Orsella, a Mojito Cocktail Bomb pack (like bath bombs, but better!), Everlasting candle sticks that won’t melt down, our editor’s personal favourite faux-leather jacket and this pretty U ceramic bud vase for our blooms.
get cosy. With no end in sight to working from home and dressing down, cosy wearables may be the way to go, gift wise. Faux-fur slippers and wide-legged sweatpants fit just right this holiday season, as do a camo sleep mask, satin PJ set and (in honour of our editor?) this Noa marled top by Z Supply.
for him. Don’t leave out the lads! Test his smarts with a 3-D cube puzzle, or send a not-so-subtle hint about the smell coming from his shoes. Help him get the holiday party started with a flask gift set or the grill started with a modern Arc Spark Lighter (rechargeable via USB port and there is no butane used) and, if he’s a local dude, he’ll surely appreciate this scented candle, which evokes the backcountry of the Pacific Northwest.
for her. From snow crystal studs to celebrate the season to love knot rings to ruffled party dresses and warm winter coats, there’s lots in store for the ladies! The Fine Finds staff’s top choices for her include a Broderie Collar Sweater, twisted textured lounge socks and a “love-ly” gold heart mug.
seasonal promos. There’s lots of fun and excitement in store at Fine Finds. The shop’s 12 Days of Giving program will see each of 12 items discounted by 15% in store each day, and you can enter to win those items on Instagram as well. Plus, this year 100% of Fine Finds’ gift-wrap service donation is going to Mamas For Mamas Vancouver for flood relief, along with 15% of jewelry sales in the month of December.
