We explored the shops of 17th Avenue S.W. from Rubaiyat to Steeling Home and found these gifts to inspire you to shop that district.

 

Officine Creative Olds pack

Leather-strap backpacks have been trending for a while. This hand-dyed leather Officine Creative Olds pack is a top-of-the-line example, with enough space and pockets to make it practical and fashionable.

Aroma-Gem Ultrasonic diffuser
