1) East Van Light
East Van Light is absolutely one of our favorite #MadeInYVR businesses. Their funky wood and vintage bulb lights are super rad, and they often use recycled materials in their construction. Most importantly their founder Dan is a super rad dude, and the kind of person you feel really good about supporting, especially around the holiday season. Their lights are made in East Van and would literally make any space better. Plus they’ve been adding a bunch of great new styles to their line recently meaning they’ve got something for pretty much any taste or space.

3) Marphyl Marine Phytoplankton
Marpyhl is another one of those amazing #MadeInYVR brand’s that straddles a couple of categories on our holiday shopping list, with their phytoplankton based sea-salts and supplements but given the planters on our list, its their Phytoplankton based soil-enhancer that’s really striking our fancy.

Killwood is one of those rad companies that makes the best out of bad situation. Their unique, modern and minimalist homegoods are all made from pine beetle killwood, meaning not only are you supporting a local company, but also one that takes material that would otherwise be waste and turns it into something amazing. We especially like their Bika wall mounted bike, which would make a great gift for those on your list that are both outdoors and home decor enthusiasts.
