Tonic Blooms is a Toronto florist we really like.

We polled the office and while many of us “don’t want anything” for valentines day, we still expect something. Human Nature, am-i-right?

BUT wait. Don’t rush to your local grocery store for 12 dozen roses and a plush teddy bear just yet. Those grab and go floral arrangements look last minute, they’re not fresh, and they come in plastic. Your S/O will appreciate the effort of using a local florist.

Tonic Blooms is a Toronto based company. They’re fairly new but already changing the way we think about flower delivery.

Valentines Day arrangements come wrapped in their signature denim (a vase option is also available) and are bundled with Squish candies, Chocolates  by Brandon Olsen or CXBO (Hand made in Toronto), or body balm by Toronto’s The Chic Canuck.

Their arrangements are well priced and tiered, ensuring an arrangement for any budget. Their blooms are delivered on demand at no extra cost, and shipping is always free.

About Tonic Blooms


Follow @TonicBlooms on Instagram

We founded Tonic Blooms with the simple goal of
bringing joyfulness back to sending flowers.

Although sending flowers has been around since as long as we can remember, whenever we needed flowers delivered, and fast, we were consistently disappointed and often frustrated. We felt that the entire gifting experience was broken, which was a shame since sending and receiving flowers should be nothing but sunshine and lollipops.

By rethinking the flower delivery business model and launching Tonic Blooms, we are devoting all our energy to ensure that those who send and those who receive Tonic Blooms are delighted from start to finish.

We start with selecting locally sourced blooms of the highest quality and freshness, so that your Tonic Blooms last as long as they should. Then, we curate and offer a selection of seasonal designs that are sure to impress and delight.

What you see is what we send.

We offer what you want, when you want it, at a price that can’t be beat. That’s why Tonic Blooms are delivered on demand at no extra cost. Two-hour delivery is free within their on-demand zone, and same-day shipping in the rest of the GTA is available for an additional fee.

Gift Ideas for Every Type of Man

Men think women are hard to shop for but the reality is shopping for guys is even harder. Broken down into 6 types gifting can be made even easier.

1. The Do-Gooder

Matt & Nat Bag

This guy loves animals and that means he doesn’t want to wear them. For him, these bags by Matt & Nat are perfect. Choose from backpack, laptop case or this one that doubles as a garment bag.


Cruelty Free Parka by Wully Outerwear

Until now it’s been hard to find outerwear that isn’t filled with duck down and coated in fox fur. Enter Wully Outerwear a Canadian brand that makes their jackets in Toronto (right down to the zippers!)  Check out their signature style The Elk.

Rather than down, Wully outerwear is filled with Primaloft Gold.


A Toronto Vs. Everybody Sweater or T-Shirt

The Toronto-based company has had one hell of a year. With a little bit of help from Blue Jays player Jose Bautista and their epic season the Toronto vs Everybody t-shirts and Toronto vs Everybody sweaters are almost always sold out– everywhere!  He’ll like this because $4 from every purchase go to breakfast for learning foundation feeding one child two meals and a snack.


2. The Jet Setter

Nebula Trainers by Geox

For the friend who’s always traveling, he needs gifts that are practical and style forward. These Geox Nebula Trainers were designed for traveling the world, perfect for any season, they naturally adapt to every movement of the foot.


Duffel Bag by Monte & Coe

A Toronto staple, Monte & Coe‘s wool duffle bag. This is the perfect weekender with just the right amount of  personal expression, practicality, quality.


An Unconstructed Blazer

The blazers from Circolo 1901 are comfort and style in one. We’ve even heard guys compare them to their favourite sweater. Get this for those long haul flights when he’ll still want to look good in first class.


Cocktail Kit by WP&Design

When he’s not in first class– But he can still drink like it. Get him a cocktail kit.


3. The Guy Who Has Everything

Stolen Riches Laces & Gotstyle Socks

This guy has everything but details are important. Up their outfit game with Stolen Riches laces and matching socks. Shop a full range of laces in store.


Jogging Set From Philip Dubuc

Montreal brand Phillip Dubuc made jogging set and he definitely doesn’t have one of these yet. Oh– yes jogging sets are back. Get the set in store.


A Bad-Ass Umbrella or Walking Stick

A little unnecessary, a little bit extra but totally bad-ass Pasotti umbrellas. They’re entirely manufactured in Italy ensuring it’s high quality and uniqueness.


 4. Mid Life Crisis Guy

To a fashion guy the Zanerobe Sureshot camo might be old news but for this guy it’s the perfect entry level pieces into street style.


Underwear from SAXX

SAXX underwear has been dubbed as life changing. It’s new innovation and technology allows breathability and room for “the boys.” Most men can’t go back once they own a pair. 


The Vintage Band Tee

Instantly relive his youth.  Vintage-inspired band tees from John Varvatos or JOAT.  Shop a bigger selection of band tee’s in store.


5. The Athlete

Fitted T-Shirt

Athletes put a lot of effort into working out so they like to show off their muscles. It makes the Hip & Bone tee the perfect present.


The Evolve Jean

The Tiger of Sweden Evolve jean has a slight drop crotch which means more room and more flexibility. A range of denim is available in store. 


The perfect pant by Buckson Slacks

Finally, a pair of slacks that fit an athlete. Fit those thighs and butt with Buckson’s Hockey Buck fit. They’re made of organic cotton with 2% spandex for comfort. Dress them up like a pair of chinos or casually like a pair of jeans.


6. The Perfectionist

Touchscreen Gloves

You probably can’t pry this guy away from his phone. With the cold weather, get him a pair of gloves that does both- keep his hands warm while he scrolls with Mujjo touchscreen gloves. Get a pair in store.


Jason Markk Shoe Cleaner

The Jason Markk holiday pack includes everything the perfectionist needs to keep their shoes fresh and clean all year round.


Swims Galoshes

Help him protect his biggest investments with Swim galoshes.  They protect leather shoes from rain, snow and most importantly- salt.
