For the approaching holiday season, we bring you our annual gift guide, packed full of invaluable and timeless goods for the giftee in your life. In the wake of the events that have taken place this year, it has aided us in re-shifting our focus to prioritize sound practices and habits. We have always relied on our community. Since we produce and manufacture our goods locally, we would not be in business if it were not for our local patrons, manufacturing facilities, customers and the hardworking men and women that have maintained the fabric of our community. In any event, we want to direct your attention to local brick-and-mortar stores who are doing just that. More than ever, we need to invest in our neighbours to sustain diversity, local economies and the characteristics that make our community unique. If anything, we hope that this guide facilitates the thought and investment in local business. Though we have shed some light on our favourite businesses, we want you to think about your neighbourhood coffee shops, book stores, restaurants and retailers when purchasing this year. In addition, for the sale of every Bather beanie, we will donate a beanie to Covenant House Toronto and help youth experiencing homelessness.
