ThinkGeek has a pretty good list of overall “gifts” but otherwise has everything broken into categories like “techies”, “Her universe”, etc., which they define as “interests”. Worth a look. Definitely some unique items there.
Now Magazine has a list of the best Christmas markets, flea markets and street fairs in Toronto.

Canada took in a large number of Syrian refugees over the past year, and they also need our help. You can donate to the Canadian Council for Refugees. That organization does important work to help these people settle and survive.
