Little Smoky Gift Co. is an online gift shop specializing in curated gift sets featuring Canadian small businesses and makers. The shop is owned and run by Carla and is based out of Little Smoky in northern Alberta.
A Note From Carla:
Gift giving doesn't have to be complicated. I remember baking with my Grandma (Ila) in her kitchen. We would carefully wrap the homemade treats in tins and tea towels and would drive the country roads taking them around to the neighbours. It was to say: "You are thought of and I care about you". Simple and thoughtful.
Presentation has always played a part in my gifting; I do like things to 'look nice'. My Mom (Lynn) and my Grandma (Arlene) have always presented everything so well: themselves, their homes, their food. It speaks to the fact that whether it is something extravagant or simple, it is important to take care of what we have been given and what we give. I have taken notes from them and I strive to produce gifts that have a pleasing aesthetic.
I see the value in supporting fellow Canadians. Buying from local businesses is a very practical way to support those around us. My hope is that you will see the options presented in my online gift shop as an opportunity to join me in supporting Canadian makers and small businesses.
Local is the heartbeat of our communities.
Simple. Thoughtful. Local.
