As I sit here writing this blog post, I’m giddy with excitement! I love sharing brands with my audience that I love, and what makes me even happier is that all of the brands I’m sharing today are Canadian!
There’s something incredibly important and special about supporting our local stores. And the thing is, there are so many amazing ones! So, here’s a list of my all time favourite Canadian shops that I’m pretty obsessed with! (Oh and disclaimer: Although I’m working with just a few of these shops, all of my thoughts are completely authentic. I would never share any product that I don’t believe in).
Jack and Lily
Jack and Lily is an infant and toddler footwear company out of Vancouver, Canada and I am SO in love with this brand. The company was developed by a Mother who was tired of seeing poorly built and designed footwear for kids.
My toddler, Mila has flat feet (she gets it from her mama) and I’ve always been mindful about the types of shoes she wears as I don’t want to cause her any discomfort. When I learned about the foot wear from Jack and Lily, I was super excited!
First, Jack & Lily has the most adorable styles. I’m a sucker for baby mocs, but I’ve always wondered why the bottoms of the mocs were never supportive enough – then I found this company! The bottoms of all of their shoes are non slip and built for outdoor use. In addition, their shoes are made from non-toxic, breathable genuine leather and they are built to flex and stretch, making them healthier for your babies feet. Amazing!
Urban Playground Designs
Urban Playground Designs is a wooden design shop out of Toronto, Canada that makes incredibly beautiful wall decor pieces for a child’s bedroom, or any other room in the house for that matter. The owner of this shop hand creates each item from start to finish, and makes every piece completely customizable and unique to your description. I’m obsessed with this beautiful wreath, and I can see it complimenting a nursery or a living room perfectly!
The OVer Company
The OVer Company creates multi-use, all in one baby covers that are breathable and safe for little ones. I love this company because it has developed one item that can be used multiple ways (Hallelujah! Anything to make our lives easier, right mamas??)
The multi-use cover specifically is designed for car seats, nursing breaks, and for shopping carts. I’m madly in love with their beautiful patterns and I would highly recommend to any new mom!
Adelisa & Co.
Adelisa & Co. is a baby and kids good company that makes gorgeous macrame hammocks and leather shoes. I’ve been obsessed with their hammocks for a while now. They are essentially little baby/toddler swings that would complement any decor space beautifully, but the practicality of them is SO there. Any child would absolutely love swinging along in them, inside or outside.
I love their story just as much as I love their products. Adelisa & Co was developed by two best friends who met in Canada. Their beautiful products come from a favourite vacation spot of theirs in Nicaragua, and they work with the local artisans, paying fair price for their fabrics, etc. They also give back 10% of every sale to young families in Nicaragua who are in need.
So there you have it, my current Canadian faves! Share below if you have any shop favourites that I should be checking out! xo
