While there's no new season of the award-winning "Schitt's Creek" to look forward to, we're still obsessed with one of its stars and co-creators, Dan Levy. The Emmy Award-winning actor-writer-producer has partnered with DoorDash this season to curate an easy-to-shop gift list from small businesses led by immigrants, people of color, and other historically underrepresented entrepreneurs.

"As a small business owner myself, I always try to support other entrepreneurs whenever possible. I'm so glad that I could partner with DoorDash to curate a gift list focused on local neighborhood shops and restaurants this holiday season," Levy said in a statement. "Whether you've already made your list, or you're a last-minute shopper, we've put together some unique gift inspirations that'll get to your loved ones on time!"

Shoppers can access Levy's list through the app and a special "Get Giving with Dan Levy" microsite, live through December 28. Gifts can be personalized on the check-out page with on-demand or nationwide shipping, along with digitally animated cards and a personal message. And, in the true holiday spirit, the collaboration also includes a $250,000 donation to Feeding America hunger-relief organizations.

Dozens of local retailers across the U.S. and Canada can be found, along with these top picks for nationwide delivery:
