Our 5 Favourite Boutiques for Holiday Shopping

Travelling during the holiday season can be stressful and busy. We know December is full of family events, holiday parties and hopefully some downtime! Whether you are staying with us to visit loved ones, for business or are just passing through before the busy season, we hope to ease your stress by helping you cross items off of your shopping list. Luckily Vancouver is bursting with local shops and artists and we are spoiled with options right around Vancouver Extended Stay whose products are guaranteed to wow your friends and family. 

We have curated a list of boutiques all located close by to your apartment at Vancouver Extended Stay. If you find yourself with spare time while here, these spots are all perfect for a slow stroll with a hot drink in your hand. We hope you find inspiration and are able to check all the names off of your list!  




This is the place to go if you are looking for a one stop shop and it is also close by on Commercial Drive. They have thoughtful brands and carry enough products to cross off everyone on your list. We love their home and apothecary section which has everything from cozy blankets and gorgeous candles to organic soaps. 


Out and About Boutique

Located on Cordova Street, this boutique has distinctive products that will make cherished gifts. Along with clothing, they have a wide array of ceramics and glassware that are simply stunning. The Mizu Mizu bowls would make a fantastic gift for a host or hostess, we love the shape and colours. 


The Storehouse

Located on main street in Vancouver, this boutique is ideal for finding unique gifts! They have so many products from local designers and brands. The jewelry selection as well as all the vintage items will have you lost in time as you browse. We dare you to walk in here without finding something for yourself as well as the people on your list! 





Siista is a gorgeous boutique featuring accessories, fashion and lifestyle products. They offer a wide range of both local and international designers. They have earrings, puzzles, bags, jackets and more (the puzzles would make such a good secret santa or white elephant!). You can find Siista on West Hastings Street, just a short walk away from our front doors. 


Hill’s Dry Goods

Hill’s Dry Goods has three easy to find locations and is the largest store if you have a big list to get through! The pajama sets are adorable, but we trust you will find plenty of options for gifts. They feature a large selection of brands and the truly gorgeous Blue Ruby jewelry. We really appreciate the tradition at this store and the family based story behind it!
