Shop local to spread joy for the holidays

he gift that keeps on giving this holiday season is the one where you support local business. You’re not only creating memories, but you’re also enriching the lives of our local entrepreneurs by supporting their dream.  

It’s easy to demonstrate your support by buying gifts directly from the shops, finding unique products at holiday markets and using BIA dollars to spend in main street commercial districts.  

At the Windsor-Essex Small Business & Entrepreneurship Centre, we have been lending our support to local entrepreneurs since 1992.  This year, we’re pleased to take an extra step in showing our support by sponsoring the 2022 Windsor Essex Holiday Gift Guide, created by Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island, designed in partnership with the  windsoriteDOTca and the W.E. Made It Program

The 2022 Windsor Essex Holiday Gift Guide features locally crafted and curated products that would make a perfect gift for someone that you care about this holiday season.  

We believe Windsor-Essex is a vibrant community. There is no shortage of high-quality local retailers and services to recommend. At the bottom of each page of the guide, we’ve highlighted our top picks. You’ll see that the guide is chock-full of inspiring ideas to help you spread the joy and magic of the season. Browse through the guide and find your inspiration here: 2022 Holiday Gift Guide.
