Owner Nils Vik stands in front of Parlour Coffee

We’ve all had to spend more time at home this year, and while we look ahead to crossing the threshold into 2021, these gifts will keep things cozy, from your home to theirs.

Parlour Coffee

Online Ordering / Pickup and Delivery Available

Sure, they’re known as the Exchange District’s unofficial water cooler, but Parlour has lots to offer for the home coffee aficionado.

A purveyor of fine coffee beans, including Snow Emergency roasted right here in the Exchange by Dogwood Coffee Co, they also have everything you need to brew it to perfection and serve it in style.

Plant Lab Botanical Design

Online Ordering / Pickup Available

Houseplants can help you feel more relaxed and calm and contribute to a healthier indoor environment. For owner Krystle, who opened the business earlier this year, plant care equals self care.

Select from holiday gift sets including plants, accessories and an annual Lab Membership, with options at  $25, $40 and $50 price points. Gift wrapping available, and if you’ve ever tried to wrap a plant attractively, you know that’s a bonus.

Katie + Gunner Gallery

Online and Phone Ordering / Pickup and Delivery Available

Katie + Gunner Gallery is an Art Gallery + Shop which features Contemporary Art including Inuit and Folk Art, Photography, Textile Art, as well as a healthy dose of designer vinyls.

The DIY Munny from Kidrobot comes in 4, 7 and 18 inches as well as a 4 inch Christmas ornament and a Set of 5 Christmas ornament set! 

Across the Board Game Café

Online Ordering / Pickup and Delivery Available

When cozied up at home, there’s nothing quite like a good game to enjoy on a snowy afternoon. Winnipeg’s first Game cafe: Across the Board has a unique board game store offering everything from the Settlers of Catan to Cribbage.

One of their favourites, Azul, is a pattern building delight. Visually based on Portuguese azulejos (originally white and blue ceramic tiles), players take turns drafting coloured tiles from suppliers to their player board and score points based on how they’ve placed their tiles to decorate the palace.

Winnipeg Architecture Foundation

Online Ordering / Delivery Available

Fridge magnets and coffee cups of some of the Exchange District’s iconic buildings, activity books for the kids to learn about the area’s stunning architecture— or a View Master (tell the kids that it’s analogue VR) tour of the neighbourhood all help bring a bit of the Exchange home.

Mayberry Fine Art
