The Night Before by SPUD (Win!)

December 15, 2021

It’s that time of year: gifts for parents, teachers, frontline workers and friends all need to fall into place within weeks (well, days for some of us). It’s fun to give, but it can also be stressful—and, let’s be honest, wasteful.

To take the pressure off and put the purpose in, online grocery service SPUD has created The Night Before, allowing you to order lovely local artisanal gifts (everything from a thoughtful selection of cheeses from Les Amis du Fromage to Noisette Salami made in North Vancouver, La Baguette sourdough loaves by Blé Bakery, Botanica’s warm and cosy Organic Reishi Hot Chocolate, New Brunswick-based Upfront Cosmetics’ sustainable shampoo and conditioner bars, Be Fresh luxe bath salts and so much more) with next-day delivery to your own or your recipient’s home.

It’s a uniquely sustainable and super-convenient way to check every name off your list—no matter how last-minute you’ve left your shopping. —Noa Nichol


Win! A $150 SPUD Gift Card!
