Christmas is right around the corner, and November is the perfect time to start getting some items crossed-off your holiday list! There are an abundance of shops in Canmore and Banff that would make the perfect stop to pick up some holiday gifts, and below are some of our favourites to visit that will surely become family faves! 🎄

Rocky Mountain Soap Company is the go-to place to find all-natural, toxin-free, body care products in the Bow Valley! With storefront locations in both Canmore and Banff for your convenience, this is a great stop to pick up all-things body care! Special shoutout to the Shave Bar, which is a stocking stuffer staple in our family!

Le Chocolatier

Who can resist a sweet treat?! Stop by Le Chocolatier to pick up some lovingly handcrafted chocolates and treats! You will find something for everyone here, and the smell in the shop is absolutely divine! A family-favourite of ours are the decadent Beaver Dams and Rundle Rock!

Alberta’s Own Store

Alberta’s Own located in downtown Canmore is a one-stop-shop for all things Alberta-made! Showcasing the works of some incredibly talented Albertan makers and creators, you will find plenty to choose from! This is a wonderful spot to pick up a gift for anyone looking for unique mountain-inspired home decor, homewares, artwork, textiles, jewelry, and body care!


Why not mix up the typical sweet Christmas treats with something a little savoury? Evoolution provides a unique shopping experience for you to mix and match different olive oil blends and balsamic vinegars. Try a taste test of some of your top choices before making your final decision as well! There are some classic options to choose from, but a variety of fun and creative flavours are available as well, making it the perfect stop for the adventurous foodie!

The Fudgery

The Fudgery is a staple to Main Street, Banff-- where you will likely be able to smell the sweet sugars of caramel and chocolate-y goodness of fudge wafting through the air from down the street! See the confectioners work their magic making the sweet treats in-house while you try and decide which goodies are destined to go home with you!

Yamnuska Wolfdog Sanctuary

Either in-person at the gift shop, or online through their website, Yamnuska Wolfdog Sanctuary provides an assortment of clothing, jewelry, and unique tea blends that are perfect for the animal-lover in your family. All sales proceeds from these purchases are directly reinvested in the Sanctuary to support the resident wolfdogs who call this place their home!

For the person in your life who already has everything, why not consider taking them to the Banff Springs Hotel for Afternoon Tea? Situated in the Rundle Bar at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, you are surrounded by the picturesque peaks visible from the stunningly large viewing windows. Not to mention, the art deco inspired decor of the restaurant itself will surely make you feel like royalty during your afternoon tea.
