IF YOU’RE IN HAMILTON

Hamazon

A resource guide to many small businesses, artists, and creators in Hamilton, ON – many that have options to shop online!

For The Foodie

AKA a list of my fave local restaurants and cafes. Gift cards to any of these spots are sure to be a hit with any Hamiltonian foodie: Detour Coffee, The Diplomat, Flora Pizzeria, and Bread Bar, to name a few!

IF YOU’RE ELSEWHERE IN CANADA

Not Amazon

Another Canadian resource guide featuring local brands in Toronto, Halifax, Calgary, and Vancouver!

FOR THE MISSISSAUGAN WHO WISHES THEY WERE IN THE UK

A Gift Card for The Tea Room

If you’ve been following STELLA for a while, you’ll know that I was living in England for 7 months from 2021-22, and I promise you, the scones at The Tea Room are better than any scone I ever had while in the UK. And I’m also not just saying that because I worked here as a server throughout college šŸ˜‰ Seriously, The Tea Room is a delightfully quaint spot tucked into Mississauga’s cute Streetsville neighbourhood and one of the few affordable spots in the GTA that offers a full High Tea experience. A gift card and a promise to take your recipient on a High Tea date is the perfect gift šŸ’•
