If you want to brighten the holidays of a family member, a friend, or a child this season, look through this eclectic and joyous catalog celebrating gifts at all price points and for all people (including yourself)!
Naïf, 227 Saint-Paul Street West
Naïf is a bit like an exquisite treasure trove that offers clothing with refined lines and practical hair accessories (like the black linen Heirloom ribbon), a great selection of jewellery, and toques and scarves to keep your loved ones warm. You will definitely find the right gift for the fashionista in your friend group! Good to know: through December 31st, 2020, you can receive a gift card for each $100 dollars you spend. When you spend $100 online or in-store, you’ll get a $10 gift card. $200 will get you a $30 gift card. And $300 will give you a $50 gift card.
Swell & Ginger, 231 Notre-Dame Street West
Are you looking for a gift to give your better half or maybe a sister? Swell & Ginger has wonderful dresses from the French brand Des Petits Hauts, shoes… and even fine lingerie. Not sure of the size or colour? Give a Swell & Ginger gift card, and let them choose! We love this shop’s delicate, feminine offerings, and you can tell that they’ve chosen everything with such care.
Clusier, 432 McGill Street
Is your hubby, your dad, or your step-father the type to maintain a well-dressed appearance? To help him complete his stylish gentlemanly look, give him a Clusier accessory, like one of their belts, bracelets, scarves, or cufflink sets. We also love their masks, which were developed with the brand’s usual attention to detail and do not compromise comfort for style.
Lambert, 228 Saint-Jacques Street
Lambert, the vegan and unisex boutique for all things bags – be it backpacks, sling bags, or handbags – and wallets. Everything here combines style with practicality. But don’t discount their selection of accessories: masks, pencil cases, and keychains all fit easily into Christmas stockings, and will bring a smile to all who receive them.
Salmo Nature, 110 McGill Street
Salmo Nature, is the go-to place where you can get something to spoil your fly fishing friends! An Old Montreal staple for 25 years, at Salmo Nature, you can find clothing, fly rods, reels, and reel accessories, several specialized books, and much more stuff for mom or pop! Note: delivery is free throughout Canada on orders over $100 (before taxes).
L’Affichiste, 461 Saint-François-Xavier Street
If you want to impress without going big, think about finding a nice vintage poster from L’Affichiste to give a space some personality, or to simply inject a little dose of nostalgia into a modern décor. Their colourful gallery posters will please any fans of retro memorabilia. Take a dive into their online store and find that rare pearl. Psst! Their sales section is really packed. 😊
Édition - Objets choisis, 361 Saint-Paul Street West
Édition – Objets choisis is bursting with different practical, fun, and unique objects. Here, you can find things like jewellery, dishes, vases, and umbrella stands! We particularly love their Made in Quebec section. Surprises guaranteed for all who set foot here!
Fanabox, 28 Saint-Paul Street East
Family store Fanabox is a must-visit for all sports nuts and Formula 1 fans! From Wayne Gretzky jerseys, to Raptors caps, and even a miniature Ferrari, it’s impossible to leave the store without the perfect gift!
Peluche Animalerie Urbaine, 288 Notre-Dame Street West
Newcomer to the neighbourhood Peluche Animalerie Urbaine will help you find some great gifts for the animal lover in your life. They have quality cat and dog treats, practical accessories such as boots to help protect dog paws, and cheap cat toys that will slip easily into a Christmas stocking. Good to know: a portion of the pet store’s annual earnings is donated to the SPCA Animal Rescue of Montreal.
Marguerite-Bourgeoys Historical Site, 400 Saint-Paul Street East
The Marguerite-Bourgeoys Historical Site gift shop is the place to check out if you’ve been looking for a store where you can find everything under one roof: aprons and dish towels, artisanal soaps and gourmet gift sets, notebooks, and of course souvenir religious objects. Our fave is the wooden train, handmade by a Quebecois artisan, perfect for little hands (for children 3 and older).
Le Petit Duck Shoppe, 398 Marie-Morin Street (corner of Saint-Paul West)
This cute little shop, Le Petit Duck Shoppe, specializes in ducks of all kinds, as you may expect – rubber ducks, duck keychains, duck jewellery, socks with duck patterns, duck tea infusers… even your pup can have his own duck toy! We’ll bet these cute unique ducks will make a big splash under your tree this year!
