Looking for that perfect holiday gift? InFocus is here to help


We are a few short weeks away from Christmas and whether you celebrate the Christian holiday or not, many people partake in the spirit of holiday gift-giving at this time of year while avoiding big box stores and corporations.

The wintertime is when we gear down and embrace that slow time and the people we love and can support Indigenous artisans from across the country making unique gifts.

We’ve done some of the scouting and today we put holiday gift-giving 2021 InFocus.

Pretty sure we have something for most of the people on your list – all of which support Indigenous creators.

Best of all none of these items will be stuck on a cargo ship on the ocean – they’re all made right here in Canada.
