Unique local gift ideas for the holidays

Christmas just isn’t complete without seeing that look of genuine joy and surprise on someone’s face when they open the perfect gift. If you’re hoping to see that look, a pair of socks just won’t cut it. Here are some awesome local places in Barrie to snag some unique gifts this holiday season.

Artisan Boutique

The Artisan Boutique is a showcase of local crafters and artisans located right in the heart of Downtown Barrie. With things like handcrafted bath & body products, blush & gold jewellery, artwork, treats, and more, you will quickly find out that the hardest part about looking for gifts at the boutique is choosing just one or two.

Everleigh Garden

Another local shop with an amazing selection, Everleigh Garden has the entire home covered from the garden to the kitchen. They also have tons of wellness products, jewelry, and even a children’s section with games, toys, and crafts. All products are locally sourced and be sure to check out their eco-friendly selections too!

Bill LeBoeuf Jewellers

Bill Leboeuf Jewellers have been Barrie’s jewelry experts for over three generations, offering an amazing selection of watches, diamonds, and gemstones. Unique can also mean rare and if you’re looking for something that few people have, the LeBoeuf team says it’s not uncommon for them to source rare diamonds and make them available to customers in Barrie.

Glow Day Spa

What could be a better gift than a day (or a few) of being pampered and feeling amazing? Glow Day Spa has several packages that could be a perfect gift for Christmas like the refresh package, the relaxation package, or create your own package that lets you put together a mix of whatever services you want!

Redline Brewhouse

Do you have a craft beer fanatic in your life? Redline Brewhouse has tons of styles from Lagers and Pale Ales to Ambers and Stouts so you can build the ultimate craft beer gift basket! They also have tons of cool swag like sweaters, shirts, and glasses or you could also stop into their taproom for a delicious dinner.


It just wouldn’t be the holidays without that nagging sweet tooth, but Luckily, cup-CAKE is here to save the day. Edible cookie dough, cookie sandwiches, and their special cheesecake in a jar will no doubt put a smile on someone’s face…if you can resist the urge to eat them yourself!
