Here is a collection of shops (many in downtown Vernon, BC) that have amazing gifts for Christmas.

I've been a big proponent of shopping local. Our local shops in Vernon, BC contribute to the unique character and charm of living and visiting. They provide a sense of community and make the North Okanagan a more pleasant and enjoyable place to live.

Note: some of these local shops reached out and gave me a special discount code you can use: justin15
