Article feature image

There are so many amazing BIPOC-owned businesses across Canada and we want to continue to show our support for the Black, Indigenous, and people of colour in our communities. We’ve put together a list of just a few BIPOC-owned businesses that have incredible offerings for holiday gifts.

The Cake and The Giraffe Holiday Dessert Box – $40

Vancouver-based Bake Shop, The Cake and The Giraffe, have created amazingly delicious holiday dessert boxes. Including, Caramel cream puffs, Eggnog macarons, Dark chocolate chip toffee cookies, Ginger thins, Dark chocolate candy cane tarts, Milk chocolate orange tarts and White chocolate dipped walnut shortbread, these dessert boxes are a perfect gift (or you can treat yourself!). Plus, $5.00 from every box will be donated to The Greater Vancouver Food Bank!

Mumgry Pistachio Almond Butter $20

You’ve probably heard of this unique nut butter that was featured by the Queen-B herself (and yes, we mean Beyonce). Delicious, nutritious and luxurious, every jar is hand-filled to preserve it’s creamy texture and slow down the process of oil separation that occurs in all natural nut butter. This makes for the perfect stocking stuffer!

Wave Collar by Jordan Clarke – $195

Toronto-based artist, Jordan Clarke, handcrafts all her jewelry and appropriately showcases her pieces as wearable art. Working with brass and silver, Jordan creates bold, elegant and timeless pieces of small-batch jewellery using hand cut techniques and a large hammered texture for the finish. Full of beautiful curves mimicking waves, this necklace sits perfectly on the collarbone from an elegant brass chain. We’re obsessed.

BIPOC-owned businesses face adversity every day, from big-box competitors to challenges in funding. We want to recognize those challenges and show our support for those businesses that should get equal treatment and often don’t. With Canada being a multicultural and diverse hub, we need to make strides to create equal opportunity and support BIPOC businesses at all times, not only during Christmas.
