5 Gift Ideas in Streetsville
Published December 19, 2015 at 5:46 am
You officially have less than a week to buy All The Things for your beloved friends and family members!
Thankfully for you, we’re here to provide a helpful breakdown of cool presents you can find in Mississauga. Without further adieu, here are some unique gifts you can grab in Streetsville.
If you’re buying for someone with classical feminine taste, treat her (or him!) to an elegant lunch at the Robinson-Bray Tea Room. The classic structure offers diners a light lunch and varied tea selection, so your loved one can experience a unique (and somewhat historical) afternoon filled with finger foods, loose leaf Earl Gray and some shopping.
Located on Queen St., this historic icon was originally built in 1855 and has been a private residence, a hotel and public house and a pub (which it has been since 2008 and remains to this day). If your friend or relative is the creative type, Franklin House hosts Paint Nites. There’s nothing cooler than pairing a pint with an easel and canvas, so treat your artsy loved one to a night of boozing and painting. Experiences, in many cases, are so much more valuable than objects.
This independent shop, located on Queen, is a Streetsville icon. It sells eclectic gifts, such as art, jewellery, home décor and furniture. The seasonal pieces are particularly impressive, with rich hues and tasteful sparkle present on the on-trend, stand-out Christmas decorations. This place is also great if you’re shopping for someone into big, bold statement jewellery.
If you have a pet owner on your list, you should hit up Hot Hounds Outfitters and Spa. Located in the Cagney’s plaza on Queen, the modestly-sized shop offers dog treats, toys and clothing. It also offers grooming, as the “spa” part of the name implies.
Another indie gem, this place has gifts for men, women and children and boasts a fantastic culinary section with outrageously spicy hot sauces. The food section also has salsas and olive oils, so the shop is worth a trip if you’re looking for that perfect gift for the unique foodie in your life. You can also get jewellery, men’s shaving products and children’s clothes and toys.
