Drake General Store

Retro Tin Maple Syrup Candle, $15
Drake General Store, drakegeneralstore.ca

They may not bear any relation to a certain Toronto-born rapper, but these three satellite boutiques are more than mere hotel gift shops; they’re a repository of wittily self-aware Canadiana souvenirs, like Erica Weiner’s maple-leaf earrings, Gibbons Farm maple syrup and drinking cups that stack into a mini totem pole.

1144 Queen St. West, plus other locations, 416-531-5042, drakegeneralstore.ca
