10 holiday gift ideas for the decor lover in Toronto

Holidays are an extra special time of year for the decor lover in Toronto - any holiday, really. They get to spiff up their home (even more than usual) and show everyone just how amazing they are at decorating their place by throwing the most jaw-dropping dinner parties. When someone has as much of an eye for design as your favourite decor lover, you want to make sure your gifts don't disappoint.

Here are my picks for holiday gift ideas for the decor lover in Toronto.

Wolf head wall hangings
Move aside deer bust, it's all about the wolf now. Yes, we love antlers on our walls - they're timeless and fab - but the decor lover on your list will appreciate the refreshing Canadiana-style touch these wolf heads bring to a room. Available at Cry Wolf Clothing from $60-150.

Brass mist sprayer
If your decor lover likes to keep high-maintenance plants in the house that need to be misted, not watered, a mist spray bottle makes a useful and stylish gift. When not in use, it's good-looking enough to be displayed on a shelf as an "objet". At La Merceria.

Spiral line vase
There are times when gifting a vase can be a yawn - but not when the vase looks like this. A clean black-and-white colour palette and gradated spiral stripes give this vase a modern aesthetic that's hard not to love. At Vintage Fine Objects, $39.

Geometric doormat
Do your part to keep that impossibly well-decorated place clean. Before the weather gets really bad and people start trekking slush indoors, impress your decor lover with a cool door mat. At Drake General Store, $38.

Is your decor lover a Christmas enthusiast (with a massive sweet tooth)? They'll love decorating the tree with these sweet ornaments. Mini donuts, $8 each, and cupcakes, $7 each, at Scout.
