Still haven't starting tackling that Christmas list? For guests staying at Ottawa hotels this holiday season, finding the perfect gift has never been easier because of the awesome stores that have opened up in the last year alone. While there will always be local favourites like The Papery and Lida Boutique, new shops like Terra20 are helping last-minute shoppers start checking off their to-buy list a little earlier this year.
Here's a quick and inspirational guide for what to buy in Ottawa this year:
Terra20: For the eco-conscious
Going green has never been so cool, and as one of the newest shops to open up in Ottawa, Terra20 is helping residents and visitors turn their homes and lifestyles into something a little more environmentally conscious. From apparel and accessories to totally organic home cleaning products and toiletries, Terra20 has everything shoppers will need for the eco-friendly person in their lives.
Little Burgundy: For the shoe-a-holic
Old school meets new school at Little Burgundy, where visitors can find the perfect pair of shoes that will fit any personal tastes. Have a friend who loves colourful Nike kicks? Little Burgundy has those. Or how about a glittery pair of Toms? All of the trendiest shoes are at this charming store, which is located right in the Rideau Centre.
Chapters: For the office buddy
It's OK to nerd out with office products like pens, stationery sets and personalized mugs. Ottawa visitors who have a coworker on their gift shopping list can stop by Chapters, where they can pick up a bunch of knickknacks that any office worker, male or female, would get a kick out of. From whiskey rocks (because really, who doesn't enjoy having a class of scotch once 5 p.m. rolls around on a Friday afternoon) to awesome moose bookends, Chapters has tons of stuff any office buddy would want.
The Papery: For the last resort
After searching high and low for the perfect gift, sometimes a charming Christmas ornament is the best choice. At The Papery, shoppers can find spectacular handmade ornaments that look more like dazzling jewels than decorations for a Christmas tree, and with so many to choose from, there's no way shoppers will leave empty handed.
