Summer in Toronto is all about the parties. Backyard BBQs, pool parties, rooftop cocktails and all weekend cottage parties. Your hard working host and hostesses deserve some love. Show your appreciation with a unique and beautiful gift from any of these specialized Toronto West & Etobicoke stores where you are sure to find that something special!
Oleander is the go to spot for hostess gifts and florals in The Kingsway and Sunnylea. This beautiful florist had been creating gorgeous urns and custom floral creations in the neighbourhood for years when they saw a niche in the local market and decided to expand their services to include their adorable and much needed gift and home store. Their gift shop is located at the side of their very pretty store front at Bloor & Wendover. The staff are always so friendly in helping to find that perfect high quality and unique gift for every occasion. My personal favourites for hostess gifts include their artisanal soaps, beeswax candles and their cheeky/fun coasters. Head on over to https://oleander.ca to see what else they have in store..
Rizo Lola & Co. is a treasure trove located in Thorncrest Village. The store owner Victoria is a very talented designer who sources a lot of her wares from Europe. If you are looking for artisan items which have been hand made with care and attention then look no further than this local Etobicoke gem. Gorgeous glassware, serving platters, candles and hand painted towels will but a smile on any hostess’s face. Just don’t forget the bottle of wine too!!
Wherever this summer party season takes you I hope you have a happy and safe one and don’t forget to show your hostess with the mostest some love and appreciation with something pretty from one of these fabulous stores! #shoplocal
