Visit our BRIKA Riverside location at 768 Queen Street East.
It’s no secret that woven into BRIKA’s fabric is the notion that we like to think of ourselves as your one stop gifting shop. From our highly curated selection of well-crafted gifts, you’ll find beautiful, handmade pieces from Makers who have been handpicked for their commitment to quality. As such, it only made sense to include a giftwrap station at our new Riverside location in Toronto, so you may as well slot us into your schedule when you find yourself gift-less and en route to your next celebration. We spoke to Store Operations Manager Catherine Cramer (get to know her here) on the rationale behind the latest fixture at BRIKA Riverside. “This might sound strange, but I love nothing more than when a customer arrives in a tizzy about what to get their significant other/neighbor/great aunt twice removed for a variety of reasons. We have such a great array of expertly crafted pieces that are as much of a joy to gift as they are to receive, perfect for any occasion. Positioning BRIKA as a gifting solution is how the Gift Concierge emerged, which is basically a service that helps you tailor a gift for your every need. Whether you’re looking for a something to say thanks when your roommate spends a night waiting with you in the emergency room, or you want to show your girlfriend you care in a way that speaks to her affinity for beautiful stationary, for example – we’ve got it all. Our giftwrap station is great because you can walk in empty handed, and leave with a hand-wrapped gift, card and even balloon. Before we opened, Toronto was somewhat devoid of great balloon shops. Our Balloon Bar offers bubble letters and numbers and even a selection of cute emoji face balloons. What better way to show someone you care than with a blowing kiss emoji?”
