Urban Girl will be going to several Christmas parties this month, all featuring a Secret Santa gift exchange. So what has she decided to buy? Canadian. She’s putting together small gift baskets featuring gorgeous hand-blown Christmas-tree ornaments—made by Vancouver glass artist Malcolm Macfadyen—and tins of specialty teas from Great Wall Tea Company and DavidsTea. All affordable. All Canadian.

DavidsTea also has more than 150 types of tea to choose from, which makes Urban Girl very happy. Choice is good.
Urban Girl loves blown-glass Christmas ornaments and thinks that everyone else should too. She found hers in a local nursery.
Great Wall Tea Company.
Urban Girl loves Great Wall Tea Company. It carries more than 150 types of tea, including her favourite, the über-pungent black tea Russian Caravan.
Twine spool with scissors
This twine spool reminds Urban Girl of a gigantic spool for thread. It’s funky and functional.
