Stuff a Stocking With Two Toronto Calendars

There's no shortage of holiday shopping advice on the pages of blogTO, but here's something extra to help you stuff those stockings just a little bit tighter. What better way to please that Toronto-obsessed special someone on your list than with something they can enjoy the whole year?

Enter a pair of calendars suited just for the purpose:

The good people over at spacing have prepared a desk calendar with images taken from the pages of their talented photobloggers. You can buy the calendar on its own or as part of a holiday package, which includes the three latest issues of the magazine!

Meanwhile, on the other side of the train tracks, the City Archives has prepared a very cool calendar called "Toronto After Dark." Each month features a rare photo of the city at night, featuring places like a now defunct "Flora-Dew Red Hots" stand on Hanlan's Point.

Both calendars can be purchased online, but with time running out on the holiday season it might be better to go straight to the good-old-fashioned face-to-face purchasing method. The spacing calendar can be purchased for $7.99 at Pages Books & Magazines, Ballenford Books, and This Ain't The Rosedale Library. For the $10 archives calendar, head straight to the source at 255 Spadina Road. Bear in mind that the archives will be closed this Saturday for the holiday season, so there's not much time to get there!

Happy stuffing!
