5 great gift ideas from Drake General Store

By: Canadian Living

Fun. Funky. Quirky. Kitschy. There are more than a few shops on Toronto's Queen Street West that tick these boxes, but the  Drake General Store is always fantastic place to kick-off your Christmas shopping. In fact, this year's lineup of potential prezzies feels fresher than ever; the Drake's buyers having pulled together some really unique design finds that could be the perfect thing for those tough nuts on your list that are always impossible to buy for. The best part is, you don't need to catch that awful Queen streetcar to snag all of these goodies: in addition to the Drake's two other Toronto locations (one at Yonge & Eglinton, and a boutique in the Hudson's Bay at Yonge & Queen) everything on offer can be shipped across the country.
