Wedding & Anniversary Gifts

We’re right in the midst of wedding and anniversary season! Whether you’re looking for something extra special to get for that soon-to-be-married couple or a unique (and traditional!) anniversary gift for your other half, you should definitely visit our Shop on Granville Island for inspiration.

The Circle Craft Shop is full of beautiful handmade items for the home, all of which make perfect wedding gifts! Try a wood cutting board, bowl, and spatula (Claudia Hayward of The Wooden Forge); glass candle holders (Jeff Burnette); or a ceramic cream and sugar set (Liz de Beer of Klaywerk Studio). We also have lovely handmade cards (Jan MacLeod of Plant Papers).

Our Shop also carries several items ideal for traditional anniversary gifts. For your first wedding anniversary, there are lovely paper cards and artwork (Jan MacLeod of Plant Papers). A leather journal (Rudi Diesvelt of Rare Discovery) would be great for a third anniversary; a rugged wood box (Neno Catania) for a fifth. If you’re celebrating your sixth anniversary, we have iron card holders (Gina Medhurst of Kootenay Forge) and letter openers (Kelly Backs of Tree Studios). For your 25th wedding anniversary, try a lovely set of silver bangles (Svea Vatch).

For these and more great gift ideas, visit us in the Net Loft on Granville Island. We’re open seven days a week!

Hardworking dads deserve a break! Help them relax and enjoy some downtime with a glass tumbler by Jeff Burnette, leather coasters by Lincoln Heller (Fiveleft Leather), and a wood bowl perfect for holding snacks by Neno Catania. And don’t forget the card! This one features artwork by Rae Maté.
