The busy holiday season is just getting started and we're already looking forward to the mouthwatering meals, festive decor and quality time spent with friends and family. One element of the holidays that can be a little stressful is the shopping, so we've made a gift guide to help you curate your shopping list with meaningful and local gifts that are sure to delight and impress!
This luxurious service is experienced one-on-one with one of Pura’s knowledgable perfumers extensively trained by Pura's Principal Perfumer and Founder, Lane Edwards. During your consultation, you and your perfumer will formulate your 15mL signature perfume from the top, heart, base and accord notes in which you experience and choose. We work with no more than two clients at a time to ensure an intimate and quality experience. Refills are available upon request, and offered at special pricing during your appointment.
This is the perfect gift for a bride to be, a new mother, a loved one, or simply the ultimate treat for yourself. It's an experience that you will never forget- like creating an 'invisible aromatic legacy'. A custom scent is powerful & beautiful, and nurtures your heart and femininity like nothing else.
FAVOURITE LOCAL SHOPS
We have the most amazing clothing and accessory boutiques in Edmonton! Whether these products are designed in Edmonton or sourced from across the globe, you're sure to find unique pieces for the fashion lovers in your life. Poppy Barley's Holiday collection has us swooning with metallic copper options! Cloud 9 Pajamas has the best selection, from cute and fuzzy to elegant and silky. Who doesn't love to receive a beautiful new pair of pjs on Christmas Eve? Who doesn't want a chic, minimal coat from WORKHALL, or a well-made, simple black dress locally designed by Emmy Deveaux?
The stories behind art and decor in a home are usually personal and sentimental. Whether these items are collected on world travels, passed down through the family or gifted by a friend, they bring so much joy to a home. We have so much love for Amy Dixon's landscape paintings, they're just so dreamy and colourful! If you're looking for beautiful antiques, make sure to visit Plum Home and Maven & Grace. They have wonderfully curated selections of antiques from all over the world. We also adore Justine Ma's handprinted holiday decorations our entire city covets for their uniqueness and festive beauty.
Timeless and feminine. So Pretty Jewelry has us mesmerized and their newest collection "Ethereal" is a celestial lovers dream! One of our favourite elements of So Pretty is that many of the necklaces and earrings can be worn in multiple ways, which is such a fantastic way to keep your accessories looking fresh.
Pamper your loved ones with beauty treatments and all-natural makeup this holiday season. Kolya Naturals has a beautiful spa where you can book custom facials, wraps and peels to leave you feeling refreshed. Our friends at Niche Beauty have the most amazing selection of makeup, hair care and beauty tools in all price ranges, plus their staff are full of wonderful knowledge.
The holidays are all about treats! Why not give the best treats YEG has to offer? Jacek Chocolates look like little pieces of art, they're almost too beautiful to eat but you'll definitely devour them! Acquired Taste has the most amazing selection of teas and they're seasonal flavours are to die for.
If you need a little incentive to go slow and to put yourself first (even for a few minutes) this holiday season, we suggest creating a Seven Days of Self-Care Countdown to Christmas Advent Calendar.
From all of us at Pura, Merry Christmas and happy holidays! We hope your days are spent surrounded by your loved ones, treating yourself to homemade baked treats, and, of course, taking time to honour a refreshing and restorative beauty ritual.
