The Ossington Last-Minute Gift Guide – Part 1

Gift guide 2010

If you’re like me, you wait until the last minute to shop. But luckily there are lots of great places on Ossington to pick up presents for family and friends. Here’s a quick guide to some things we found which make great gifts.

Our first choice is one that you’ll need to pre-order, but we got one and it came quickly. Dave Murray does great word-cloud art and there’s a nice poster of the Ossington Neighbourhood. You can find it at his site.

If you’re looking for some pampering for your partner, or co-worker, Lush and Lavish has gift certificates for anything in the place, including manicures, pedicures, massages and more.

Further down Ossington near Queen is Lab Consignment and Silver Falls Vintage, where we found these great mittens by SLO which go for between $28-32. Good for warming up friends, family and co-workers.

Further north on Ossington Ministry of the Interior has these funky piggy banks in many colours which go for between $130 to $350. It makes for a great house decor, and also helps your loved one save some of their coin. How good is that?

If you’re looking for something more personal, get the family together and call Joe Fuda at Oz Studios. He’s doing Christmas portraits. It’s good for creating memories when family is in town. We’re pretty sure he’ll even head over to your home or someplace you enjoy to take the pictures.

We’ve got some more ideas which we’ll post tomorrow! There’s only 6 more shopping days left.
