Welcome back to my 12 Days of Green Market Giving feature! I’ve had a blast showcasing the awesome artisans at Green Market, which is a darling little gift store located in the heart of Lower Lonsdale, behind Raglan’s (7A Lonsdale avenue is the exact address).
For the past week, I’ve been highlighting a different artisan each day from the Green Market, and today, we’re going to do something a little bit different.
It’s stocking stuffer day! I’ve rounded up some of my favourite things to fill a stocking with- all locally made, all available at Green Market. Stockings are highly underrated, if you ask me. I love all the little trinkets and treasures found within them. This holiday season, go the extra mile for those you love by choosing thoughtful, local and quality stocking stuffers from the Green Market!
Middle row, left to right:
Bee Zen beeswax “hive” candle, $8.00 – Support a New Westminster beekeeper and stuff a stocking with this adorable handcrafted hive candle, complete with little bees!
Be Clean Naturally Uplifting Room & Linen Spray, $12/bottle –A blend of fragrant and mood-lifting pure essential oils delight in a base of distilled water and witch hazel. Lightens your mind, and scents your home or linen the natural way! Handmade in Squamish, B.C.
Shine Makes All Natural Pit Stick Mini, $6 –I will rave about this natural, hand crafted deodorant until the cows comes home, because it’s just that good. This mini is the perfect size to stuff a stocking with- grab one for you, too! You’ll be buying the full size as soon as this generously-sized mini runs out. Coconut oil, baking soda and a variety of essential oils create odour-busting perfection, with a mild, unisex scent.

Studio Aroma Lip Gloss, $11, has recently become my favourite. Made up of a variety of natural oils that drench the lips with moisture and serious shine, this gloss tastes and smells just like its main ingredient- Rosehip oil. I also love the brush-on, twist-up packaging- it allows for easy application. Handmade in Vancouver, B.C. Expect to hear a lot more about this wonderful green beauty brand very soon!
