Windows decorated with cedar garland, sweet city lights and gloved hands being held down the sidewalk.

This month, we're grateful to be wrapping gifts, getting cozy by the fire and taking really good care of our skin with layers of rich creams and balms. The HH team is gifting from local artisan markets in Toronto, sipping mocktails with elves and eating bolognese pasta (almost) every night.
