Toronto’s been extra generous in spreading the love in 2016. So much so that retailers and individuals are creating fantastic memorabilia to share that 6ix pride proudly. Whether you’re looking to support a local designer, or emblazon Toronto on your chest (or fridge), this guide is a good starting point for gift inspo for the Toronto lover in your life (and we won’t tell if you buy them for yourself).
While traveling along the 400, 401 or QEW may not ignite fond memories, cozy socks and a conversation starter will. At $20, these are the perfect gift for the Toronto expat or a funny (evil?) gift for a friend that commutes. Labour of Love is filled with gifts for the Toronto lover—from original print art to mini “TO the Good” soaps and plenty of Toronto-inspired baby onesies. If you’re looking for something that’s made in Toronto, there’s plenty of local artists and makers that sell their fare here, my favourite being the all-natural Leaves of Trees products that are mixed right here in Toronto.
