Winnipeg’s Local Shopping Gems
There’s something for everyone at Winnipeg’s local retailers
It's never been easier to find unique Winnipeg gifts. If you’re looking for a souvenir or gift for your board or organizing committee, Winnipeg’s local retailers have you covered. From pop-up markets to standalone shops, it’s always easy to find one-of-a-kind products that are sure to impress. Across the city, you can find local treats and trinkets that meeting planners could use as delegate gifts - your attendees will be talking about them for weeks afterwards.
There are dozens of local shops in Winnipeg that you can make your next conference shopping destination. We'd like to highlight a few that have us going back again and again for their artisanal creations.
Chocolatier Constance Popp – Winnipeg’s premiere chocolatier makes wondrous (and edible!) products portraying iconic Winnipeg landmarks like the Golden Boy and the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, along with countless options for corporate gifts, frozen treats, chocolates, pastries and cakes.
Coal & Canary - These über-popular locally made hand-poured candles smell divine and are made from highest quality soy and vegetable wax. New scents – all with the punniest names around – come out regularly, while the 8 oz candles last approximately 45-50 hours.
Manitoba Mukluks – This Métis-owned and operated company produces one-of-a-kind mukluks that are hand-crafted by Indigenous artists. Celebrity clients who sport these fine foot wares include Kate Moss, Megan Fox and Cindy Crawford, while every product comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Hilary Druxman – Made right in Winnipeg’s Exchange District, Druxman’s minimalist (and affordable!) designs utilize sterling silver and 18k gold and are tailored to be multi-occasional.
Crown Royal – One of the world’s best whiskies (it has a cabinet full of awards to prove it) is distilled just north of Winnipeg in Gimli, Manitoba. It was first crafted in 1939 as gift for King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon of England, while its flavour is still fit for a king.
