In an effort to support more local businesses here in Ontario, a few of us put together a list of small to medium sized businesses in a Holiday Gift Guide for the season. We know we wanted to support local this season as much as possible, but I was having trouble finding an extensive list that was exclusive to Ontario. So we put in the research, time and asked our community of recommendations they had or known.
This took a tremendous amount of work and I have to thank Diondra of Driven By and Grayce of Mousse Taco for their time. Please note, we had a limited timeframe to get this into our communities hands for the holidays. If you have suggestions on other Ontario businesses that could use the help, please email me at [email protected] for your recommendations! We hope you find this Ontario Local Gift Guide as helpful as we did.
