As 2021 comes to a close, and we turn the page to a new year of possibility, we send our heartfelt thanks to everyone in our community for choosing us as your partner—whether to help build a meaningful career or assist in finding the best talent. To help you end the year with brightness and joy, add a bit of sparkle to your home or a touch of sweetness to your table, we’re delighted to share this collection of our team’s favourite treats in our Annual Gift Guide.
With so many great suggestions to choose from, we used three words to help us make the final cut: Listen, Involve, Support.
In listening to our community, we learned how aligned we are in valuing diversity, equity and inclusion. We intentionally included as many Canadian small businesses as possible, nearly 50% of which are owned by women and/or BIPOC founders.
We involved many of our own team members, each with wide-ranging hobbies, preferences and tastes, to develop this guide. They’re tech lovers, book fans, hikers and fitness fanatics, beauty afficionados, pet owners, travelers and new parents. We included the full gamut of their suggestions!
As a company founded by two young, determined entrepreneurs with big dreams, we know firsthand how important it is to support small business owners, especially this year. Nearly 60% of the products in this guide are lovingly made by a Canadian business owner. We encourage you to help keep their dreams alive and their businesses thriving by purchasing with purpose.
This guide is our team’s gift to you. We’re grateful for your continued support and look forward to working together in 2022. All our best to you and yours!
