Put a Bow on It
They preen us, pick up after our pooches and scrub our tubs – these are the wonderful souls whose services we cannot live without. ‘Tis the season to show your dog walker/cleaning lady/aesthetician etc… how much you appreciate her.
If it weren’t for the dogwalker, you’d come home to pee-stained rugs and heel-less shoes. This hot dog leash ($12) is as cute as your Daschund. At Good Egg, 267 Augusta Ave., Toronto, 416- 593-4663, www.goodegg.ca
She scrubs, sweeps and polishes your pad, not to mention, keeping you in emotional check. Thank your cleaning lady with noshable gifts (fresh ginger loaf, lemon pound cake, truffles and cheeses) from All the Best Fine Foods. Her whole family can feast on a gift basket (from $130).

Look, it’s not Tuileries, but even your garden needs a regular manicure. Thanks to this lovely fella/lass you don’t have to lift a rake all year. A super moisturizing hand cream ($19) for those chapped, cracked, winter worn hands should be well-received. At www.mattercompany.com
