Make this an Island Good Friday. Shop for the Holidays. Good for Every Day!

With supply chain issues at the forefront of everyone’s mind this holiday season why not shop local for holiday entertaining, stocking stuffers and more.
You can order an Island Good Gift Box—a ‘taste of Vancouver Island’ and have it shipped anywhere in the world.

There are so many Island Good seasonal options to choose from around the Island. It isn’t too late to buy Holiday greeting cards featuring Island goods, and other art at Polaris CreativeMartha’s Delectables has a lovely variety of holiday options on their website. As one customer says their “their cookies are the benchmark by which all shortbread cookies are measured.”  Rocky Creek Winery in the Cowichan Valley is open this weekend from 3pm to 8 pm for a trail of lights. As well, at the winery special two bottle gift boxes and discounted pricing will be avaialbe. One that is a favourite is their mulled wine gift packs complete with the mulled ingredients and a great recipe. RockCoast Confections is offering an Advent Calendar filled with treats and they have a very special affordable gift which includes a piece of their toffee called Spread Love for $5 – includes shipping anywhere in Canada. Mid Island Gifts at the Comox Airport has a great selection of Island Good products and On The Fly Cafe has Pie on the Fly, and Christmas treat boxes for advance order (and convenient take out window) Great for corporate gifts!

Finally, when you shop local not only are you are contributing to the local economy, but you are supporting your local communities as many of our local businesses give back. For example, Soupa Cafe, through The Gift of Music campaign every December, fundraise for used guitars and re-home them to children. When you order from Singing Bowl Granola for only $7.00 you can add any box of granola to your order, and they will donate it to a local food bank. As well, this Friday they will be donating 100% of their online sales to www.raventrust.com. And that’s only two examples, there are so many more!
From the Island Good family have a lovely holiday season and enjoy your local treats!
