We all have those urbanites in our life – you may even be one of them. And with a name like Country meet City, we thought it would only be appropriate to follow-up with a Gift Guide for the City Girl.
Finding great gifts for that girl who lives in the city can be tough. They may have a small apartment/home and may spend a lot of time out and about, so you probably won’t want to give them large things that require them to be at home to use. But things they can use while they’re enjoying the city, going about their everyday life? They’ll appreciate those gifts over and over again.
Once again we’ve done all the research for you, finding all of the best and locally sourced gift items from luxe jackets and blazers, mala necklaces, artisan bags and personalized wine glasses. Even better, is you can find it all at the Freewheeling Craft Christmas Market and happening December 3-4 from 10AM-4PM at the Glebe Community Centre. This Christmas Market will have something for everyone on your list.
