Around here, the right winter gloves can make or break your day. Dakine Kodiaks are extra-warm and fully waterproof — not to mention alpine-retro-cool in brown leather.

Double-Salted Licorice

You might think it tastes like old tires, but, to the Dutch and other aficionados, salted black licorice is simply lekker.

$2.79 per 100 grams at Gummi Boutique, 205 10 St. N.W., gummiboutique.ca


Van Gogh Paint by Numbers Kit

Those who loved the Beyond Van Gogh exhibit at the BMO Centre can keep the feeling alive by painting their own Irises or Starry Night.

Zero Waste Shave Kit

For those who want to look good and feel good — about doing their part to keep disposable plastic razors and shaving-cream canisters out of landfills.

$37 at Canary, 1225A Kensington Rd. N.W., canarygoods.ca


Hangout: Deville Coffee

Café culture converges in this heritage space in the heart of Kensington. Settle in and sip a classic flat white, or treat yourself to something more indulgent like a chocolate ganache latte.

1122 Kensington Rd. N.W., devillecoffee.ca
