Here are holiday gift ideas in Toronto if you want to shop local.
When you buy an ethereal "Nowhere"-scented candle from local company Tomorrow Night at West Queen West shop Tusk, you can let your giftee know part of the purchase supported Encampment Support Network and Parkdale Food Bank.
Transport a loved one to an idyllic woodsy retreat in the privacy of their own bathroom when you give them this log cabin soap scented with pine and fir by Anto Yukon, available in East Chinatown at Tiny House Mama. It also contains coffee grains to exfoliate away the grit from outdoor adventures, and the best part is, it's handmade in the Yukon.
A linocut hand printed poster by a freelance illustrator and designer from Common People Shop puts your money where your mouth is by supporting a local artist and business, perfect for the person who wants to show off their community love. They have lots of other cool posters and prints to browse too.
A locally printed 2021 calendar from Secret Planet Print Shop on the East Danforth is both useful and adds a touch of design to any space. It was illustrated and printed right here in Toronto and features doodles of dogs and cats if that's your giftee's thing, but if it's not they have a wide selection of other prints.
Hand-painted succulent holders from Wildhood in the Junction are the perfect affordable gift for plant lovers looking to brighten up a small home, especially while they're spending lots of time inside this winter. This versatile gift could also be used as a desktop holder, tiny vase or drinking cup if your giftee doesn't have a green thumb.
A handmade pen from Curated Market Co. in the Beaches is guaranteed to be one of the most practical yet original gifts you can give this season, as no two are the same and some are even made using bog oak that's over 5,000 years old.
