Gorgeous Galentine's Day Gifts by Local Ottawa Gals

If you've ever watched the show Parks & Rec, you're probably familiar with the Galentine's Day episode (if you need a refresher...).
Unfortunately, I won't be able to kick it breakfast-style with my girlfriends this year, but you can bet I'll be sending out messages of love to them all!

I also love supporting my local girl gang whenever I get the chance. I not only wanted to celebrate the women in my life by showing love to the hard working female makers in the Ottawa area.


If you're looking for something special to give to the lovely ladies in your life, look no further! I've put together a gift guide with some items I personally approved for the occasion!

Are You Kiss Ready? Lip Duo by Hoppy & Poppy - $10
This lip duo from Hoppy & Poppy will get you primed and ready for your Galentine's day look!

Handmade with all natural and vegan ingredients, the entire line is full of delectable goodies.
This set in particular features a Lip Polish (you can choose from a number of flavours like BubbleMint or Fizz, Clink, Pop!) and a Mint Truffle Lip Balm. They both feel incredibly nourishing and taste SO yummy!

What I especially admire about this girl-run brand is that they love to give back whenever they can. Their #LoveYourself line is all about female-empowerment, and 40% of all sales go towards women's shelters. What's not to love about that?!

Hot/Cold Neck Flax Pac by The Flax Pac - $20
This is one of those products that you'll instantly buy two of; one for a friend, and one for you!

Made in Ottawa by The Flax Pac, these beautifully hand-sewn bags feature the magic of flax seeds to evenly distribute heat. They come in two different sizes (neck or back), and a variety of stunning patterns to choose from! You can coordinate these to match your throw pillows, so you can leave them laying around for whenever you might need it!

These are wonderful for any aches & pains (especially around that time of the month, I'm sure you ladies know what I mean). You can pop it in the microwave for a cozy cure-all, or even chill it in the freezer to soothe sore muscles. Plus the optional lavender scent is just so comforting!

Brass Fox Pendant Necklace by Ms Penny Lane - $20 (shop similar)

For the lady on your list that loves to accessorize, I love pieces by Ms Penny Lane. Based out of Chelsea, QC, Josiane's designs are equal parts whimsical and beautiful. While most of her accessories incorporate rough-cut gemstones, I love that this little fox designs pays homage to those pieces with its geometric style. It's perfect for that foxy friend on your list (you know I can't resist a pun)!
Her shop also features clothing, stationary and home decor, so you just might have to score something for yourself too!

Felt Play Donut Toy by Qute Creations - set of 3 for $15

Of course, I couldn't forget the lil' gals on my list! Qute Creation is the mastermind behind this little felt sweetie. Every play kitchen needs a donut, right?!

Owner Ashley is not only the mastermind behind this cute business, she's also a mother of two. Her Etsy shop is full of adorable, soft toys from Paw Patrol badges to rainbow puzzles, all to encourage quiet & imaginative play. Reasonably priced and super cute, these make great gifts for the moms-to-be or lil' munchkins on your list!

I hope this gift guide inspired you to buy local and spread love to the women in your life! With that, I hope you all have a fabulous Galentine's day! Girl Power!
