Happy New Year!

After a two week hiatus, we are back in the office and ready to take on another 365.

Walked in today to find some goodies from Indonesia. Yum!

Stumped on what to get for your architect friend/client? We are one week away from Christmas – time to get moving! See below for some ideas.

Lego Architecture

We couldn’t resist Lego’s Architecture series. There are several iconic buildings to choose from – something fun for everyone.

Coffee Press

For those early mornings and/or to keep you company during those long nights at the office.

Wine

Also for long nights at the office…

Moleskine

Smart phones are great and all but sometimes it’s better to write things out.

Mini Eames

For the designer furniture lover. These are pricey so save this idea for someone you really want to impress.

Visual books

Vogue’s Living, Houses, Garden, People is a beautifully designed book featuring photographs of spectacular houses and gardens of people in the world of fashion, art, music and society.

Onesies

A fun gift that people will quickly learn to love, if they don’t already.

 

Volunteering towards a good cause is not exclusive to the holidays, but it certainly is the season. During this time, take a moment to appreciate your blessings and remember the less fortunate.

ProfileofHunger

This year we are working with Daily Bread Food Bank to give back to our community. Daily Bread Food Bank is a non-profit, charitable organization that is fighting to end hunger in our communities. Every year thousands of people across Toronto rely on food banks. Daily Bread serves these people through neighbourhood food banks and meal programs in over 170 member agencies.

Another initiative we are interested in is #HashtagLunchbag, coming to Toronto this Sunday December 15th. Volunteers are asked to donate $10 towards groceries and supplies, which they then wrap up and deliver to local homeless communities. This initiative uses social media to spread the word, hence the name #HashtagLunchbag. Contact info@normli.ca for more info on how to contribute.
