Holiday Gift Guide for Her

Whether they’re fans of the Leafs, Raptors, or Blue Jays, there’s plenty of merch out there you can shop for the Toronto sports fan in your life.

You can find plenty of wearable sports merch at Sportchek or on Etsy (support local makers!)

For the Leafs fan:

For the Raptors fan:

For the Blue Jays fan:

You can even grab merch for the fashionista in your life who just loves reppin’ Toronto.

I’ll admit I’m no sports fan, but I love my Jays cap.


Peace Collective gear

We all know Peace Collective for their iconic “home is Toronto” gear, and it’s of course a great gift idea for your Toronto lover.

They also have fun Toronto-themed graphic tees now, like this raccoon tee (if you know, you know) and Honest Ed’s inspired tee.

Another awesome reason to shop their Toronto collection: for every piece sold, they donate 3 meals to a Canadian in need through the Daily Bread Food Bank!


TTC merch

The TTC has merch? Say whaaat?

Yep, you can get fun TTC-themed items like this bus ornament and bus mug.

They even have clothing items, and their retro line is actually pretty cool – the toque and mittens are great options for the TTC rider in your life.

I’m sure there won’t be as many delays in shipping as there are in the streetcar schedules. *ooh burn*

Night-Night Toronto picture book

For the little kiddos in your life, this fun picture book is a great Toronto-themed gift idea.

It features a bunch of Toronto locations, including the CN Tower, Ripley’s Aquarium, and Canada’s Wonderland!

You can get it on Amazon or Indigo.


Art Gallery of Ontario

AGO Annual Pass

Got an art lover in your life?

You don’t need to get physical items as holiday gifts, and the AGO Annual Pass is a fantastic gift idea!

The pass is $35 for the year, and it gives them access to the entire AGO collection, including special exhibitions.

Also note that everyone aged 25 and under can get a free pass to the AGO, so this is for your 26 and over friends.


Royal Ontario Museum

ROM Membership

If your giftee is more into museums than art galleries then a ROM Membership might be a better fit.

The membership is $135 for the year, and it gives them access to all exhibits, including special exhibitions.

Another cool thing about the membership is that it includes free general admission to some other museums in Canada, including the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Vancouver Art Gallery, and Montreal Museum of Fine Arts!


EdgeWalk at the Toronto CN Tower

EdgeWalk at the CN Tower

I’m definitely someone who values experiences over material things, and gifting someone a really cool and memorable experience is always a great gift idea.

If you’re looking to give someone the experience of a lifetime, dangling off the edge of the CN Tower is way up there.

It’s quite pricy at over $250 per person, so it’s definitely a splurge-worthy holiday gift for if you’re looking to treat someone special.

Kinka Izakaya, Toronto

Gift card to a Toronto restaurant

When in doubt, a gift card is always a go-to holiday gift idea.

And to make it less boring, grab a gift card to one of the best Toronto restaurants!

Grab a gift card to Miku for the sushi lover or Planta for the vegan in your life.

You can also grab gift cards for local Toronto restaurant groups, which gives your Torontonian more restaurant options.

Go for a gift card from the Distillery Restaurants Corporation (which works at several Distillery District restaurants, including Cluny Bistro and El Catrin) or Kinka Family (which works at any of Kinka’s restaurants, including Kinka Izakaya).
