This holiday season, many Yukoners will be staying closer to home, foregoing trips to warmer climates or visits to extended family in favour of keeping things within our bubble. That makes this the perfect time to do all of your holiday shopping locally! Shopping local keeps money within our communities and helps them to thrive. There are so many talented makers in our midst, so let’s show them some love!

We’ve prepared a gift guide featuring many of the fabulous options right here in our little snow-globe town, and some great online shops, too, so grab a latte and let’s get shopping!

 

For the Foodie

 

For the foodie in your life, your first stop should be Axe & Crocus. These small-batch, hand-crafted pantry items are created with plants and herbs foraged or grown right here in the Klondike Valley. From blueberry balsamic vinegar to alder smoked garlic salt, these creative pantry staples will bring the local terroir into the kitchen. You can shop online or stop in at BonTon and Company on Second Avenue to purchase in store.

While you’re there, get that favourite foodie of yours a gift card for locally raised, butchered and cured meats, plus cheeses from Klondike Valley Creamery–a rotating selection is available in the display case. Or let BonTon do the cooking! They can use that gift card for dinner Thursday through Saturday nights for a meal that spotlights local produce.

 

A Night on the Town

 

While we’re talking gift cards, why not get those exhausted new parents in your life a night out on the town, Dawson style! How about a room at The Eldorado Hotel, The Aurora Inn, Bombay Peggy’s, or the honeymoon suite at The Westminster to go with dinner at The Drunken Goat or The Sourdough Saloon? You provide the babysitting while they go relax for an evening!

Check out our full listing of restaurants and accommodations to find the one that’s just right!

 

Cozy Homebody

 

That being said, between winter and a global pandemic, there’s never been a better time to be a homebody. Help your loved one cozy up in quarantine with books, magazines, and puzzles from Maximilian’s on Front Street.

Stop by Dancing Moose next door and pick up one of Weft and Willow’s gorgeous woven wall hangings or artwork from one of many talented local artists.

Just down the road is True North Company, a new salon and boutique in Dawson City featuring beautiful northern-inspired hand-embroidered throw pillows from THREADSNORTH. You can also shop online here.

 

Feeling Pampered

 

While you’re at True North Co., you can begin to cross the spa-lover off your list, too! Pick up a scented candle, some Yukon-made bath products or a gift certificate for a massage with their RMT.

Dawson City has lots of options for massage therapy! Try Hair Cabaret on Queen Street (call 867-993-5222), or Confluence Clinic above the CIBC.

Treat your pal to soft skin with Aurum Skincare’s Calming Birch Serum, available online or at various locations in Whitehorse. This award-winning serum is deeply hydrating, and made with birch water sourced right here in Dawson City.

 

Adventurous Spirit

 

Got someone a little more adventurous on your list? Make sure they’re properly outfitted with a stop at The Raven’s Nook on Second Avenue and Queen Street for a great selection of top of the line gear from Columbia, Canada Goose, Carhartt and more.

Visit The Trading Post on Front Street for something a little different: rugged army surplus gear, plus mukluks, snowshoes, fishing equipment, guidebooks and so much more.

And nobody can head out on a winter adventure without a warm toque and a pair of mitts. Black Mask Greetings and Gifts brings you crocheted goods made from natural fibers, including hand-spun Klondike wool sure to keep your loved one toasty. Visit Dawson City Cannabis above the CIBC to purchase, or shop online via the Black Mask Greetings Facebook page!

 

Instragrammable Looks

 

If you’re looking for fashion that’s got form and function, we’ve got you covered! True North Co. carries comfortable sweats from Yukon Built, plus boots and slippers from Manitobah Mukluks.

Dancing Moose also carries curated women’s fashions, including local sustainable fashion brand Made by Auds, whose garments are all designed, cut, and sewn in Dawson City. These pieces are easy to wear, versatile and minimalistic, and sure to become a staple in your person’s wardrobe.

And don’t forget to accessorize! Civil Twilight Leather makes all their items by hand in a historic Dawson City workshop. You can shop their belts, wallets, and valet trays online.

For something truly unique, don’t miss the Dänojà Zho Gift Shop on Front Street for some beautifully beaded moccasins, earrings, hair clips, or card holders.

 

Plant Lovers

 

For the herbalist in your life, Rockpile Remedies has everything you could need, from teas to tinctures, salves and balms, all wild-crafted right here in the Klondike. Visit them on Facebook or at their cabin in the Dredge Pond Subdivision off the North Klondike Highway, just call first to be sure they’re available, (867) 993-5645.

And be sure to check out Lunar Lixirs thoughtful, crystal-infused aromatherapy oil blends, mists, bath salt soaks and gorgeous gemstone soaps.

If your favourite plant-lover likes to wear their heart on their sleeve, visit The Foragers Club online for boreal-inspired enamel pins, mugs, and embroidered patches. All of these sweet herbal designs are drawn right here in Dawson City.

 

Wee Ones

 

For the kids on your list, look no further than Maximilian’s for puppets, plushies, toys from Melissa & Doug, books and craft kits. Ray of Sunshine on Second Avenue and Princess Street has Lego sets, dolls, Hot Wheels and more!

For the littlest ones, check out Lil’ Bean Stitching on Facebook for bibs, flannel washcloths, and face masks sewn locally.
