Like it or not, the Holiday Season is not only fast approaching, but it will be out of the ordinary for reasons we are all aware of. Let's take the opportunity to warm the hearts of the loved ones we miss so much these days or to spoil our family with a little something original and, of course!, local.
So here are my gift suggestions from local artisans and Très dion. There really is something for everyone. For Très dion products, do note that I offer personalized gift wrapping on my website, so don't hesitate to ask for it.

Gift suggestions for newborns: New ideas!
Many Quebec artisans offer products for infants. Raplapla rag dolls are a must and their reputation is well established. The bavette Très dion in absorbent linen is both apractical and original idea.. My body pillow is softer than a kiss under the mistletoe and is sure to please every new mom.Des enfantillages wooden toys for children are a sure bet and are sustainable.
Exciting gifts for children
For older children, a children's book is always appreciated. I highly recommend the books beautifully illustrated by my talented sister Nathalie Dion. My favorites are her books Le grand méchant loup dans ma maison which deals with delicate subjects such as violence in a very skillful way and Debout! which is so cute
How to please your teenager?
For teenagers looking for autonomy, why not a first colorful and hyper practical wallet fromA Atelier HOTELMOTEL. I have had one myself for five years and I use it every day very proudly.
They are moving out? No problem!
At Très dion, we have plenty of choices for the young adult moving out and finding themselves with an apartment to decorate from A to Z. He will be able to quickly tidy up his mess with one of my storage baskets. . She will be able to embellish her hall with my bench simply perfect for small spaces, or her old couch with super comfortable decorative cushions. And it will be much easier for him to motivate himself to do the dishes with my Très dion dishcloths.
I also offer posters (I have 2 on my site)), but my favorites are Stephanie Cheng’s silkscreen printed posters who I had the chance to meet at a trade show in Toronto two years ago. Her posters are simple, but original and can go with many types of decors. I’m in love!
Plants do make a difference in a living space just like that. I really like what the Montreal company Plantzy. has to offer. Watering instructions included!
Special gifts for your best friend
Lots of gift ideas for that person we love so much and who we miss these days. And then, if we finally think that she won't like what we have chosen for her, we can always keep it for ourselves
As for me, this Ilk sjewels are simply sublime. I have one of their earrings myself and now I just don’t know what I would do without them.
Gifts for expatriates abroad
will appreciate my maple syrup jar made in collaboration with Atelier Trema (to be offered with a cane of maple syrup as a bonus!). Products from my Montreal collection are also still available on my website.
Montreal themed stationery The Baltic Club's and prints are ideal for a small shipping overseas. Sleek and trendy.
The perfect gift for the adventurous aunty
We all have an adventurous aunt, don't we? Spoil her with a U MAIN cheese kit. She will indulge in cheese preparation and think of you. Also available in a vegan version.
My My floral collection is a brighter one and will please her for sure. Bold prints and fringes. What more could she ask for? See it here..
The active retiree: or what to offer to those who already have everything?
I always like to offer ceramics to my parents' generation. It's neutral and comforting. Everything Atelier Trema is worth offering as a gift! Personally, I eat breakfast every day in their skillfully made dishes. And there is always our maple syrup jar made in collaboration with them as well.
For the gourmets, the fruit cake to offer is the one from Le Mélèze. Nothing more classic, but nothing better either.
The art of spoiling grandma
Last but not least. The jams, syrups, caramels and other sweets of Dinette nationale will comfort your grandmother during this out of the ordinary Holiday Season. Or offer her a sumptuous and soft silk and cotton
