If you’re looking for simple yet practical Canadian-made gift ideas, a locally-made and hand-poured candle is perfect.

There are tons of awesome local candle companies that hand pour their own candles here in Canada, and the homebody in your life will definitely love a Kim and Pom candle as a gift.

Their candles are made with soy wax and lead-free cotton wicks, so they’re eco-friendly and toxin-free!

They’re hand-poured here in Ontario and packaged in sustainable packaging.

Go for the Mulled Cider scent or Cinnamon Bun scent!

LOHN is another one of my favourite candle companies in Canada, and they’re based out of Toronto.

They’re actually home to Toronto’s very first scent studio, which is pretty cool!

They even have a scent quiz on their website so you can find your perfect scent.

The Feu and Illa are my faves, and they’re the scents I actually got matched with on the quiz.

Oath the Label candle

For the candle lover who also loves home decor, they’ll absolutely love an Oath the Label candle.

Their body-shaped candles are literally a work of art, and since each one is handmade, every one of them is unique.

I love that they have bodies of all different sizes, including a pregnant body-shaped candle!

They make their handcrafted candles out of pure soy wax, so it’s vegan-friendly as well.

Their candles are actually more for home decor than burning (they’re also unscented), but they’re still gorgeous pieces for gifting!

For the foodie in your life, they’ll definitely appreciate a jar (or a few) of Kozlik’s mustard, which is made here in Canada.

The Amazing Maple and Sweet & Smokey flavours are my absolute fave.

They have the most incredible holiday chocolate selections, and the peppermint bark is my and Adam’s absolute fave – we get it every Christmas!

The Dear Santa chocolate bars are another fantastic holiday chocolate, and Purdy’s donates $2 from the sale of each bar to supporting Canadian children’s hospitals.
