It’s never too late to find the perfect gift! Here are a ton of ideas for every budget, available in downtown shops.

Foodies are always easy to please, but if you want to really impress, gift them with this Amedei box of chocolates from Holt Renfrew-Ogilvy. Also at Holt Renfrew-Ogilvy is this Gimber gift set, perfect for the mocktail lovers in your life—a dash of elegance and spice! For the crowning touch, swing by Vasco Cigar, and purchase this Dalvey flask, ideal for winter strolls.

Does your significant other prefer to stay indoors, curled up with a good book? Treat them to a cozy pair of reading socks, a comforting candle, or moisturizing hand salve. For time spent around the outdoor fire pit, opt for these nuptse mule slippers by The North Face or this warm merino base layer sweater.

For beauty product fans, the Kiehl advent calendar, filled with mini products, is ideal… and perfect for filling this Rachel satchel, available at Fossil in Place Montréal Trust. Makeup mavericks will be mesmerized by this 12-shade eye colour palette by Gucci—so pretty you won’t even need to wrap it!

Is your 10-year-old niece’s stocking bottomless? Fill it with Nanoleaf mini light panels, available at Best Buy, a stylish knit beanie, and a vintage-style Instax instant mini camera (ideal for keeping her busy on Christmas Eve!).

If money is no object, Maison Birks has a wide variety of sparkly rings, and Christofle offers elegant flatware for the chicest table of all.

If you’re still at a loss as to what to buy, here are a few other nifty ideas.

For décor fans, this paper wreath from Indigo is a must. As is this reed diffuser from Anthropologie.

Looking for a watch? Holt-Renfrew Ogilvy offers this Casio Vintage collection watch, while Vasco Cigar has this stunning Dalvey Voyager clock.

Good luck!
