Perfect for: Someone not on the gift list
So not necessarily a gift per se, but you know, there are always the few peeps that will just be getting a card this year, so why not up the ante with Flakes Paperie's Holiday Telegram? A hand-screened, non-fold card that's so old school it's cool. Stop.
No don't stop. This locally made card will have the non-gifter pinning it on the wall and pointing it out at get-togethers, all the while curious to why you don't exchange gifts. Because you just did.
I'm not a fortune teller, but maybe you can expect something meaningful come January.

Perfect for: Cats, dogs and cat and dog lovers.
Do you have a friend or family member that loves their pet? Do you love your pet and always make sure Santa brings them something too? Do these pets have smart, stylish, and locally made pet clothing? If not, best snap up something from Rover for a new (and adorable) look for man's best friend - and the cat.
I spotted these last week at the One of a Kind show and can't stop picturing Jack the tabby in a one with a pair of glasses and a Jack Kerouac novel. Though I'm not expecting anything in return from him...

Perfect For: Your girlfriend (or yourself)
It may be December, but the sun still occasionally gives us a shout out. There's nothing quite as dreamy and lovely as sliding these Leith Clark (yes, Leith of Lula) + Warby Parker Marva's on when popping out midday for a bit of Vitamin D.
The Marva in cobalt leaf with purple lenses are round and vintage-y and pretty much what my eyeglass dreams are made of.
Why not pick up a pair and a Lula to read them with?

Perfect For: The Traveller Friend
Know someone who is really into maps, globes, and neat city guides? If you do, the unique and super fun guides from Herb Lester Associates are perfect. In Toronto, you can pick from a selection at Presto! at 1011 Yonge street.
For a more serious gift, sign up a friend for the Wanderer's Society pack: A new guide and travel tip postcard each month is mailed to your pal, along with a notebook and membership button in month 1.
It's what I've asked "Stephanta" for this year...
