It’s that festive time of year again and we are excited to help you get started on your Holiday shopping. At Sphere, we love to support Calgary small businesses by investing in locally made products. We are truly lucky to live in a city with countless amazing boutiques, and among makers and artists and curators of all kinds, making it easy to shop and support small this holiday season.

Our team has pulled together a thoughtful gift guide of hand-selected products (mostly local, but some we like so much they just had to make the list!) and services from businesses we love and stand by. We hope this brings you inspiration and sparks joy as you give to others this December and throughout the year.

Sphere Gift Card – We are always happy to recommend a gift card to Sphere! It can be used in our Wellness Shop, put toward new frames or sunglasses, or for a wellness service like our facial treatments that soften fine lines, improve texture and tone, and help with dry eye disease. From $50.

Milk Jar Candles – Candles always make for a perfect gift, and we can’t get enough of Milk Jar’s amazingly scented soy candles. Our signature See The Good candle is made by Milk Jar and available for purchase at Sphere, and their Silver Smells holiday collection offers a lineup of sweet and spicy or earthy and smoky scents, all in a festive metallic vessel. From $38.

Analog Coffee – Only a few steps away from us in Westman Village, Analog is always keeping us fueled and we love supporting our friendly neighborhood cafe. Analog’s signature, Godfather Espresso is sure to please that coffee lover on your list and a bag of locally roasted beans is a perfect stocking stuffer. From $22.

AlumierMD Skincare – Give the gift of self care with some amazing high quality, advanced skincare products from AlumierMD. The Rejuvenating Collection is the ultimate high quality, anti-aging collection with six curated products to rejuvenate skin and target fine lines and wrinkles. We are able to source the entire collection at Sphere, and we also offer complementary skin consultations with our medical aestheticians to create a bespoke plan just for you.

AM Cleaning – Give the gift of a clean home! AM is an amazing small but mighty team who really care about the details. They even make and use all their own plant-based, non-toxic cleaning products! Natural, effective, and beautiful, their locally made products are formulated with pure essential oils and poured by hand right here in Calgary. Get in touch with AM to gift a custom clean or grab some products for a fun stocking stuffer! From $13.

Twenty/Twenty Beauty Products – We love these ophthalmologist-created beauty products that are safe and healthy for the eyes. The Get Growing Lash and Brow Serum and the Clean Sweep Mascara both make great stocking stuffers, and, just in time for the holidays, they sell as a cute boxed duo. Available at Sphere! From $28.

Pie Junkie and Bakery Gift Box – Another friendly neighbour in Westman Village, Pie Junkie makes the best local pies, and we love their wooden gift boxes as a festive, edible treat for your foodie friends. Choose from sweet or savoury, mini or large pies in a beautiful wooden box with a handwritten note. There’s also the option to add prosecco or non-alcoholic cider to your box. From $53.

Forma Radiofrequency Facial – A Forma facial is the ultimate in radiofrequency technology that is highly effective in treating dry eye syndrome but also gives you skin tightening benefits and targets fine lines and wrinkles. It comes as no surprise that this is one of our most popular treatments!  Connect with us to book!

Eau Claire Distillery Gin – One of the best local distilleries who carry the most festive and delicious Christmas Gin around the holidays. It makes the loveliest gift and sparkles with 24 karat gold edible flakes in every pour! Eau Claire spirits are conveniently stocked in Westman Village at 5 Vines. From $50.
