Now that you’ve gotten the bigger presents organized (if you haven’t yet, here’s our handy Xmas guide to help you out), it’s down to the fun and easy stocking stuffing. Short on ideas?

Here are some suggestions to make it simple and stress-free, with all items available right here in Kitsilano.

For Her

Fill up her xmas stocking with a sachet of hard-to-source loose-leaf green tea from 05 Rare Tea Bar, a nice bottle of local Okanagan late harvest or ice wine from the Okanagan Estate Wine Shop, a Silk Cami or Cashmere Toque from Kit and Ace, and an organic lip balm from Whole Foods.

For Him

Fill up his xmas stocking with a pair of colourful Italian socks from Finns on Broadway, a few scratch n win tickets from the gas station, some favourite nostalgic treats from The Candy Aisle, a solar-powered flashlight radio from Gandy’s Home Hardware, and a Leatherman multi-tool from Atmosphere.


For little ones browse Hip Baby for beautiful wooden blocks and rattles, while Pebble has a great selection of warm and cozy socks. Preschoolers will love Kinder Eggs, Lego minifigures, and Playmobil surprise packs from London Drugs, and a Chocolate Letter from Chocolate Arts. Older kids will be happy with mini craft kits, sushi erasers, scented pens, and joke books available at Kidsbooks. Teens will appreciate gift cards for iTunes, Cineplex, or Starbucks, available at Shoppers.


What? Doesn’t your pet get a stocking at Xmas time? My Fluffy Friend’s Pet Shop has loads of goodies for your dog or cat, including healthy and safe treats, toys, and accessories. Plus the stocking alone will provide hours of fun.
