Massy Books is easily our favourite bookstore in the city. This Indigenous-owned outpost in Chinatown offers something for everyone, from new releases to rare used books and offerings from local artists and writers.

Where: 229 Georgia Street

For the dog lover- Good Boy Collective

Located on Main Street, Good Boy Collective offers an incredible selection of accessories, toys and more! From dog clothing to harnesses to toys, you’ll be walking out of here with a present that both the recipient and their furry friend will love.

Where: 3633 Main Street

For the design buff- SORT

The newest concept from the folks at Faculty offers a spot to grab incredible homeware, whether it’s made right here in Vancouver or sourced from all over the world. Think very cool ceramics, stationery, personal care items and more. Personally, we love the incense burner in the shape of a house.

Where: 2550 Stephens Street

For the naturalist- Vegan Supply

We’re lucky to have a retail outpost of Vegan Supply, which offers, you guessed it, a wide range of vegan and earth-friendly products. We’re not just talking food either- you can find perfumes, candles, apparel and a whole lot more here, and impress your vegan friend with a gift that goes above and beyond.

Where: 250 E Pender Street

For the resident mixologist- The Modern Bartender

The Modern Bartender is the perfect choice for someone who loves to try and recreate their favourite drinks at home. And while you can grab everything from shakers to high-quality tumblers to even ice tools, we’ve got one thing to say, and that’s that everyone on earth needs more tiki mugs in their homes.

Where: 28 E Pender Street

For the aspiring chef- Ming Wo

Continuing the theme, we’ve got Ming Wo. While the iconic Chinatown location shut down last year, Ming Wo has been supplying pros and home chefs alike for over 100 years! Here, you’ll find everything from inexpensive (but effective) steamers to high-quality knives, making it a great option for any budget!

Where: 2170 W 4th Avenue

For the trendy friend- PLUS

Now with a nationwide presence, PLUS is the de facto spot to get accessories and clothing that, quite frankly, you won’t find anywhere else. Whether you’re going all out on some fresh sneakers or just grabbing a stocking stuffer (Supreme toothbrush, anyone?) PLUS has got you covered.

Where: 701 W Georgia Street (CF Pacific Centre)

For the outdoors enthusiast- Valhalla Pure

Chances are high that your friend who lives for the outdoors already has everything they need. So, rather than replacing their shell jacket or trying to buy them a new tent, we think you should stick with accessories and add-ons that are built to last but also beautiful to look at. For that, we recommend the brand Snow Peak, and Valhalla Pure has the best selection in the city.

Where: 88 W Broadway

Ok folks, that’s our roundup of some great places to find the perfect Christmas gift in Vancouver, no matter the kind of person you’re shopping for! Now, all you have to do is get out there and make some decisions.
