Holiday Gift Guide: Wrap It Up!

We’ve been having a fantastic time exploring and shopping our local artisans and designers this season! With a slew of fantastic #ShopLocal focused events, we have almost crossed everyone off our shopping list for the holiday season. But before you dash out to buy up some generic or mass manufactured wrapping paper and cards, check out these fantastic local designers.

You can wrap up those fabulous and unique local gifts in equally awesome paper!

Gift Wrap, $20.00/roll

Designed by Alexia McGinty and Natasha McDiarmid, these two Toronto designers wanted to step “away from the digital realm and into the nostalgic world of paper products with the intent to bring back the joy of gift giving in a fun and creative way.” The whimsical black and white papers are suited to any occasion. They look so chic with jewel-toned bows under the Christmas tree.


Owl and Oak
Holiday Cards, $4.95



Fans of minimalism rejoice! Owl and Oak are a modern papiere intent on reviving the art of the hand-written note. Their contemporary designs are responsibly printed and environmentally conscious.


La Jolee
Gift Tags



The Toronto-based artist’s cute and quirky animals are now available on festive gift tags! Our favourites? The sloth and pug! Contact the designer to get a package of tags.

If you have always dreamed of a green Christmas in Florida, or fancy Santa in swim trucks as opposed to his jolly red winter suit, Penny Paper Co’s bold and lively designs are for you! Bright pinks and reds, crocodiles and creative lettering make this collection a stand-out under the tree.
