This holiday season, swap the stress of uncertain shipping deadlines and busy malls for a more relaxing retail experience that will leave you feeling good. The small businesses of Lincoln have been here for us through a challenging time, and it’s time to show them a little holiday love!

With a quick scroll through our Lincoln Chamber of Commerce Member Directory, you’ll find all sorts of inspiration for creative holiday gifting. From locally made arts and crafts to local wine, beer and spirits, delicious meals at area restaurants and overnight escapes, family and friends will be delighted by gifts that give them a taste of the Lincoln you love.

Here are just a few of the shopping stops and gift ideas that we can’t wait to wrap up for loved ones this season.

For Perfect Presents

From sensational stocking stuffers to eco-friendly ideas, beautiful bling and bath products, fun foodie finds, and the cutest gifts for babies, The Local Life and Hey Baby in Vineland will have you checking all kinds of boxes off your holiday shopping list in record time!

Looking for other friendly local Lincoln retail stops to add to your holiday shopping circuit? Consider The Heritage Gift Shop, Hotglass Wearable Art, Jansen Furniture, Jordan Art Gallery, Maggy’s Pet Boutique, The Charming Place and Soft & Still Collective

For Excellent Experiences To Gift

Rather than giving more stuff to that person on your list who has everything, treat them to a relaxing experience instead. Give the gift of Thai Yoga massage, yoga or pilates classes with a gift certificate that can be purchased online from The Yoga Vine Integrated Health Studio in Beamsville.

Other great options for those looking to give the gift of a relaxing experience include Bench and Balance Elite Spa and L’Atelier.

For Giftable Getaways

Just three minutes from Jordan Village, an overnight stay at Centennial House Bed & Breakfast is a perfect way to pamper out-of-town friends and relatives when they come to visit. In addition to being an excellent host, Diana makes and sells incredible fruitcakes for the holiday season. The cakes, made with locally sourced cherries, maple syrup and rum, are vacuum sealed for at least four weeks to allow their dark, delicious flavours to develop. 

Additional options for gifting an overnight stay in the area include Inn on the Twenty and Ramada Jordan Beacon Harbourside Resort. If you’re thinking of gifting a getaway that’s a little further afield, the friendly staff at Myles Travel Plus can help you with all the details.

Lincoln businesses are here for you this holiday season with a range of safe shopping options. If you’d prefer to shop from home, many local businesses are continuing to offer online shopping, curbside pickup, and home delivery. Reach out to the companies you’d like to support to learn more.
