Present Day is Toronto's newest online gift box service

Present Day is a new gifting service that has landed in Toronto just in time for the holidays. The company creates themed and customizable gift boxes that feature handpicked, (mostly) locally sourced products. And while many Toronto-born subscription services offer giftable boxes, this one is the first of its kind.

Present Day is the brainchild of Sophia Pierro, a Toronto-based set decorator, who stumbled on the idea while curating pieces for the films and television shows she worked on. She's had plenty of experience rifling through Toronto shops for the best of the best, so you're in capable hands.

These boxes are more personal than an edible arrangement or old-school gift basket. Each is tailored to fit a specific theme, with options ranging from New Mom & Baby to Whisky Mixology (they've really covered all their bases).

Inside you'll find a mix of goodies, many of which can be picked up at local outposts if you need a refill. The Retreat Box, for example, features of apothecary goods made by Wildwood (created by Rowan Homespun owner Dominique Del Col), Candles from LoversLand, and a few more Ontarian bits and bobs.

Boxes retail for $85-$200, and can be delivered straight to your recipient's door.
