Thoughtful Gifts by Tolmee

It’s that time of year again! The annual run-around to find the perfect gift. What to get? What to get for who? Will they like it? and so on...

Amidst the endless selection of mass produced products available, it’s hard to find a gift that is personal and thoughtful. We at Tolmee are proud to have partnered with small scale designers who lovingly handcraft their unique products. 

Browse our selection of fun toys, sustainable fashion accessories and handcrafted jewelry for inspiration and a gift, for anyone on your list, that will truly be one of a kind and a pleasure to receive.

For the little ones

Finding gifts for the little ones can truly be a challenge. Browse the toy aisle of any department store and all you see are highly commercialized and not very interesting toys. It seems that manufacturers are in competition to create the biggest and flashiest box with a hefty price to match. When my kids receive such gifts, all they do is rip them open and toss them aside. It seems like none of their contents are interesting enough for them. And I don't blame them. Kids deserve something unique as well; toys that challenge their growing minds are interactive and a great way for parents to spend a few hours with their kids. What's more, are toys are eco-friendly as they are made with recycled paper and non-toxic dyes. How cool is that?

This is the season for parties! We will either be attending, hosting or both. It's always good form not to show up at a party empty handed. Show your appreciation to your host for throwing a fabulous party by giving them a unique and thoughtful gift they will love!
