Special Gifts for People Who Love Toronto

If you are travelling around Canada, you can send postcards that might quickly be thrown in the recycling bin. Instead, why not bring home special gifts representing the places you saw or visited? Your tokens of esteem can be treasured for years to come.


If you (or someone you care about) loves Toronto and wants to remember a visit (or their favourite landmark or neighbourhood),  they can have a unique item for their home, apartment or dorm room. Give gifts that will be remembered, including symbols to thank people for their service, or personalized holiday cards and calendars.


  • Perfect for all occasions - Whether for Christmas, Hanukkah, birth announcements, or another special gift, people who love Canada or Toronto will love a cover with artwork from a local artist depicting important landmarks (or sentimental locations for lovers or former residents.

  • Unique gifts - When you provide a print, card, pillow, or tote bag depicting a beautiful painting of a significant place, the gift recipient will be thrilled. Choose a location that means something to someone. They’ll save and display that gift for many years to come.

  • The personal connection - If you have a number of items to recognize valued employees or clients, customized gifts are a great option. With a special order, you can add your brand name and/or logo to something like a calendar (or small artwork). If you require a special commissioned artwork of your place of business (or another significant space) an artist can create that for you for gifts and commemorative honours. Artists who specialize in corporation commemorative gifts can help.

  • Contact an artist in your area and see if they can provide commissioned work for special events or various customized gift items. Why give something that will ultimately be donated or re-gifted? Give a gift that will be appreciated and adored.

    All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother

     High Park Centennial Celebration Of all the flowery poets you might have expected to suggest the above, the source, much more pragmatic in life, might surprise you. These are the words of Abraham Lincoln. With Mother’s Day close by, surely few would want to take any argument with such feelings. Of course, the bond runs both ways, as Sophocles noted, more than two and a half thousand years earlier, when he said that: “Children are the anchors that hold a mother to life”.

      It was William S Burroughs who suggested that: “The aim of education is the knowledge, not of facts, but of values”. If you have a child who is about to graduate, or the sibling of a relative or dear friend who is about to move on from their schools, colleges or universities, you will surely want to mark this transition point in their life in a way that is both personal and memorable.

      As zoologist Wynetka Ann Reynolds once said: “Anyone who says you can't see a thought simply doesn't know art”. This is equally true when you are seeking out that special gift for an upcoming anniversary, birthday, wedding, housewarming party, or Christmas. Too many folk also seem to rely on transient gifts, such as a dinner event that makes an immediate impact, which then fades as quickly as the taste of the meal. However, if you want to say something special when providing a gift, a p...
