Christmas is just around the corner and I’m excited to be teaming up with my favourite local children’s store, Scallywags, for the second year in a row to bring you some local gift ideas for the little ones (and Mamas too!). Scallywags is a proud supporter of other local businesses and carries many products from Kelowna, BC, and Canada. Shopping local makes a huge difference for local business owners. With a few weeks of holiday shopping left, this is the perfect time to pop into Scallywags and finish up your Christmas lists! They have an amazing selection of toys, clothing, bath and body products, and the best stocking stuffers around. Enjoy! xo

Shop Local Gift Guide
- Hand Puppets
The cutest little puppets around! Made in Toronto by CateandLevi, these fun puppets are 100% USA polar fleece, which is made from reclaimed or recycled materials! A great gift to encourage imagination and creativity.
- Little Humbugs
Discover the magical world of the Little Humbugs, where Butterfly Girls and Dragonfly Boys help to look after the Environment. Vienna received Jasmine the Butterfly girl last year and loves the doll and book! Written by Marghanita Hughes, a Kelowna-based nature art teacher and an award winning children’s book author and illustrator.
- Ballerina Jewelry Box
This musical jewelry box was a favourite item for Vienna last year and is perfect for any little dancers on your list! There is nothing sweeter than a musical jewelry box. Vienna was in awe when she opened it last year. Scallywags carries two options made by Schylling, a US based toy company that creates high-quality, safe, and creative products.
- Natural Bath Bombs
My girls love bath bombs! Steer clear of the toxic, mass-produced brands. Scallywags has tons of natural, fun options and fruity scents in stock. Bath Squigglers, an all natural product made in Vancouver, BC by Loot Toy Co. includes a little foam toy inside, which is always a hit with the kids. We also love the Kelowna-made Sweet Soaks brand. I always stock up on these small (and affordable!) mini bath bombs! Both options are toxin-free and don’t stain.
- K’Pure Products
BC based company K’Pure has the best line of all-natural, high-quality, non-toxic, and cruelty-free products. Scallywags carries a great variety and they are always a popular seller! Their natural deodorant is my favourite product, I also love their bath salts, lip balm, and face serums! Ok I love it all. These products are the best stocking stuffers with Mom and baby options available.
- The Market Bag
The perfect little carry-all bag made locally in Kelowna by The Market Bags to take a step in the right direction for a better (and waste-free) planet. Each reusable bag is handcrafted from upcycled cotton or sustainable materials. These bags are great for everything from groceries, to snacks, to gathering up all those baby items on-the-go.
- So Luxury Coconut and Oat Milk Bath
SÓ Luxury bath products are natural and toxin-free (no parabens and carcinogens used here!). This milk bath is made with 100% certified organic, food grade ingredients. The combination of organic coconut milk and organic oatmeal gently cleanses baby’s skin and enhances their natural baby softness without stripping the natural oils.
- Okanagan Lifestyle Clothing
Check out the cutest locally designed collection of crewneck sweatshirts for kids (and hats for kids, teens, and adults too) made by Okanagan Lifestyle Apparel. More than a brand, Okanagan Lifestyle Apparel is grounded in a vision to build connection and create positive change in our community. These items sell out quickly in-store, keep your eyes out for restocks!
- Bracelet Sets
The cutest little twinning bracelets made by Kelowna based Salt and Sage, with options for Mom, kids, and Dad too!
- Headbands and bow clips
A fun collection of seasonal headbands (I mean, did you see that reindeer headband!), garlands, and ornaments made by Kelowna company She Felt Lovely Designs. Scallywags is always decorated with their products–check them out around the store!
