These are a few of my favourite things…sing it with me!

With Chrismukkah around the corner, I decided to list some Toronto-based treasures that would make great gifts or self-presents (depending on how good you were this year!)

Lots of love and Happy Holidays xoxoxo

01. Boz Boards

My buddy and fellow OCAD grad, Mike Boz is an amazing craftsman, designer and just all around adorable guy. Since this is not a dating site, go visit his website to check out his custom boards.

02. Biko – Mirim Necklace

For great girlfriend gifts you should head straight to the Biko booth at the One of Kind show (on until December 2nd). Say hi to Corrine. She is the genius lady behind all Biko creations.

03. Ginette Lapalme – Cat figurine stickers

For fellow cat-ladies and cat-men.

04. Better Stay Together – Red holiday dress

This might have to go on my wishlist! Get festive with a red sailor dress from Etsy.

05. Beckerman Necklaces – Heart and Arrow Necklace

Every time I wear a Beckerman Necklace someone stops to ask me where they can buy one. So here ya go!

06. Bridge + Bardot – Cozy Sweaters

Bridge + Bardot has much more than cozy sweaters. Go visit their shop on Dundas to see what you can find.

07. Eat My Words Cupcakes

These are not only the tastiest cupcakes in the city (yes, I dare to claim that) but Eat My Words works tirelessly to help to raise money and awareness for the Stephen Lewis Foundation. Two gifts in one!

08. Cuchara – Shadow Necklace

You are sure to win some sort of best girlfriend/boyfriend prize if you get your lady some of Edi Woo’s magcial creations.

09. Ursa Ursa – Vintage Rainbow Winklepeckers

These could possibly be the worst gift for a friend…..but I LOVE them and they are from Toronto, hence they make the list.

10. Society6

Another shameless plug. My art is on a pillows, and cell phone covers, and posters and laptop skins !! yay! p.s free shipping through Monday on society6.
