The year’s biggest shopping season is upon us. Are you ready? Get ahead of the holiday bustle with an online stop or in-studio booking at Present Day Gifts. Owner Sophia Pierro, a former set decorator for film and television, uses her eye for visual appeal and talent for scouting out unique goods to create themed and custom-tailored gift boxes filled with curated selections of mainly products from Toronto and across the country.
Packaged in a tasteful, beribboned black box or bushel basket, items from local makers and craftspeople are artfully nestled in decorative straw. Included is a menu that narrates the story of each item, handwritten note and inspired embellishments like hand-tied herbs and dried flower bouquets. Personal and corporate themed gifting collections range from food and drink, beauty care and small housewares. Or put together your own selections and theme, adding company or event branding with business cards, corporate logos on tags and more. Flat-rate shipping fees apply across Canada and the U.S., with hand-delivery in Toronto for an added personalized touch.
