Amanda Top 5 Local Gifts

Meet Amanda, owner of Stratford Blooms. She loves giving experiential gifts and supporting local entrepreneurs. Each day we’ll post one of her locally made picks.

Gin being Amanda’s spirit of choice, she picked Black Raspberry Gin from Junction 56 Distillery for a great Black Raspberry Gin Fizz. Add Tour and Tasting passes for insights into the making of spirits and the fun of tasting their latest flavours. ($24.95/375ml at Junction 56 and at LCBO) Tours are Saturdays at 11am.

Chocolate Barr's Top 5 Local Gifts

A little decadence is an important consideration when giving gifts. Amanda loves to gift Chocolate Barr’s dark chocolate creations and a selection of truffles.

Top 5 Local Gifts The Spa Near the Tracks

It’s all about the experience and when Amanda wants to pamper someone special, she chooses The Spa Near the Tracks. Their signature sugar scrub and a gift certificate for a mani and pedi always receive hugs of appreciation. 

Top 5 Local Gifts Shane Norrie Gallery

Amanda’s love of beauty and coffee influence her fourth pick – one-of-a-kind pottery mugs from Shane Norrie Contemporary gallery in Stratford. Known for his stunning contemporary creations and curated fine art, hand-thrown mugs are an accessible way to incorporate beauty into daily life. Even the coffee tastes better!

Top 5 Local Gifts Keystone Alley

Eating out in Stratford is always a welcome gift. Amanda picks up Kale chips and Hippie Bowl Tahini-Tamari dressing from Keystone Alley along with a gift certificate. Another rockin' winner!
