High-quality, practical kitchen items from locally-owned businesses.
Don’t get me wrong, the chipped dinner bowls and plastic cutting boards we know and love will always have a special place in our hearts (the tacky Christmas mug I got when I was 10 will definitely become a family heirloom). But, if you’re looking for a space-elevating housewarming gift for a friend or relative, these items from B.C. makers will be the perfect addition to any kitchen.
These handmade multi-purpose glasses will elevate their drink game. They’re great for cocktails, smoothies or any other (cold) beverage your heart desires. The glasses come in two sizes and 4 wondrous colours, and are all made right in Vancouver. You can even check out their mold blowing process to see how each one is created.
This jumbo serving bowl is ideal for any host-with-the-most out there. Good for serving salad, pasta, bread or any family-style meal. This beautiful and practical kitchen staple is handmade on B.C.’s Sunshine Coast.
This black walnut cutting board can act as the perfect vessel for meats and cheeses on their next charcuterie night. All of AMC Naturals’ boards are “self-healing,” which means they’ll never need to buy a replacement. Each one is made from high-quality Canadian wood and handcrafted in Nakusp, B.C.
This Vancouver-based company makes sustainable lunch bags that are practical (they’re leak-proof!) and look beautiful. They’re washer-friendly, come in loads of fun colours and patterns, and are made from recycled textiles. Who says only kids can have fun lunch boxes?
This Vancouver-based, woman-owned company is known for their delightful latte blends (the lavender one is *chef’s kiss*), and they have created an adorable milk frother. It’s great for whipping up any hot or cold beverage, and ideal for anyone looking to recreate that coffee-shop-taste at home.
