All About Mary

Welcome! My name is Mary Stewart and I’m working on my gift-giving dream with my shop, All the Things.

All About Mary, Owner of All the ThingsFor over 20 years I’ve had the pleasure of being an aesthetician. It’s safe to say that skin care is my passion and I thrive on providing clients with a blissfully relaxing experience while being pampered with a spa treatment. Part of my care is introducing clients to new products that do amazing things for their skin and hair. Sharing my knowledge is important to me. My biggest tip for great skin is to stay out of the sun—the bigger the sun hat, the better!

I do heed my own advice and am often asked the golden question, “What do you use on your skin?” This is the best compliment especially since I’m over 40 and most people—specifically my thoughtful, sweet, smart, fun and spunky children—say I look closer to 30 years in age. (What do you think? I’ll accept all answers with a smile and a wink!)

While my passion is rooted in skin and hair care, my love language is gift giving and I speak it fluently. I love to brighten people's day with a treat and this is well known by my friends and family. 

In the middle of 2020 (and this crazy pandemic) a friend of mine living out of town asked if I could put together a gift for her mother-in-law. She was thrilled with the pairing of perfect items, said it looked amazing and that I should do gift baskets as a business. After a couple of days of thought, I decided I was going to do it and jump right in. All the Things (custom gifts and curated products) was born.

My life also wouldn’t be complete without two key elements: having lots of fun and giving back! This is why All The Things carries a variety of unique products for the body and home from small businesses. Currently I support 17 local makers and creators from in and around Calgary. I also often pair up with a charity and donate a percentage of my proceeds to a cause that’s dear to my heart.

I find so much joy in what I do. I love putting gifts together and it's important to me that anyone who shops with me can customize the gifts they are buying. Custom and curated gifts are my jam, so please reach out about featured baskets and special orders.

With my All the Things shop, dreams have become a reality and I am beyond happy! Thank you for all of the support and I can't wait to keep on sharing All the Things with you.
