While early October may typically be be a tad premature to start your holiday shopping — this year is a bit different. With shipping delays and uncertainty still lingering due to COVID-19, we’re getting as much of our holiday shopping out of the way early.
Luckily, Amazon Prime Day 2020 is just around the corner — on Oct. 13 and 14 this year. While the two-day event is only available to Prime members (you can sign up for a free membership here), we’ve already been browsing Amazon for deals and cool brands to support— and we’ve come across these nine female-owned brands that would be perfect for any gifting occasion.
From Cape Breton to Vancouver, these Canadian small businesses create jewellery, art, home decor and beauty products we're confident would make any gift receiver smile.
To support female entrepreneurs with the convenience of Amazon, scroll down to see what we've uncovered.
