Holiday Gift Guide | Winter 2019

The holidays are near and the turn of a decade is coming — without further ado comes one of our favourite + most anticipated articles of the year: the third annual Aisle 9 Holiday Gift Guide. This year’s is special — why? Our team has grown [and then some], and each face behind Aisle 9 pulled thoughtful gift ideas straight from their own wishlists. This time of year is all about crossing every person off your list, which we know can be many different types of people: your foodie friend, the girlfriend who’s on a wellness kick, that one who has everything, etc. We did the work of discovery to create a one-stop shop for you + your people.
