Our Tri-Cities holiday shopping guide

A roundup of last-minute holiday shopping ideas for last-minute holiday shoppers

Holiday shopping can get overwhelming but, to make your life easier, we’ve curated a list of local options ranging from rec centre gift cards to cookie kits.


Christmas shopping is incomplete without food items, right? Port Moody’s Olive The Best offers infused olive oils, balsamic vinegars and gourmet foods as well as a range of gift packs.

A business dedicated to making bread, muffins, lasagna and more that is 100 percent gluten-free and made in a nut-free facility. Delish Gluten Free cookie kits and gift cards will make the perfect warm gift!

Local news that matters to you

No one covers the Tri-Cities like we do. But we need your help to keep our community journalism sustainable.

A charcuterie grazing box? Yes, please. Order this special treat from Eden West Gourmet for yourself or someone you love and people will love you.

The whole family can enjoy painting cookies kits from CanelaSweets. Cute and fun!

Bath stuff

Bath bombs shaped like Christmas trees, gingerbread men and candy canes? Luckily, we have Little Bath Bombs that are handmade and cruelty-free. They make bath bombs for kids so little ones will have every reason to bathe this holiday!

What can make a bath more relaxing? A bath bomb plus, knowing your money is going towards a good cause and that is exactly why DisDaBomb is on this list because their products are handmade by differently-abled people.


Jewelry is always a great gifting option and you can find a variety of beautiful and elegant designs handmade with polymer clay by Coronica Clay Co.

Gift baskets

Custom gift baskets are a specialty of this family-owned business, Wish on a Star. People say great things about their items and you are sure to find something fun and artsy for yourself or a loved one at this store.

Staying active

Port Coquitlam is selling reloadable gift cards that can be used at Hyde Creek Recreation Centre, Port Coquitlam Community Centre or the Outlet for activities ranging from skating to yoga to woodcarving to afterschool activities for kids.

Nothing makes me happier than finding a forgotten gift card six months after it was given to me so, get someone special a themed birthday party from Port Moody’s Dream Party Productions (I’ll take Spongebob or penguins).
