Our Four Favorite Unique Stores in Montreal 

One of our favorite parts of any trip is selecting a memento to bring home, so that we can remember the fun we had and places we were lucky enough to see in our time there. Montreal is no exception. The city is home to many incredible boutiques, shops, and markets where travelers can select gifts for family and friends, and that one piece they’ve been looking for their wardrobe or home. Here are our top four places for gifts in Montreal.

 

1- YUL Designs

This store sells everything from journals to glassware, from artwork to jewelry, and from candles to scarves… all products are exclusively designed and, typically, manufactured in Montreal. Visitors can soak in the local creative culture and browse for a souvenir that is as unique as their own tastes. Many products are also eco-friendly. Be sure to look out for the 7 Deadly Soaps line of soaps, facial cleansers and fragrances.

 

Hours: Mon-Wed 11 AM-6 PM, Thu-Fri 11 AM-9 PM, Sat-Sun 11 AM-5 PM

Website: https://yul-designs.com/

Location: 5251 St Laurent Blvd, Mile End

 

2- Jean Talon Market

Although most people come here to pack for picnics or grocery shop, you can also stop here for an array of local products such as baked goods, cured meats, cheeses, and jams to bring home. The vendors will usually offer you samples of products before you buy them… just ask nicely! Be sure to look out for the buckwheat crepes and locally-made ales.

 

Hours: Mon-Wed 7 AM-6 PM, Thu-Fri 7 AM-8 PM, Sat 7 AM-6 PM, Sun 7 AM-5 PM (seasonal)

3- m0851

Montreal is known for its leather goods, and this upscale boutique is a great spot to browse for a new backpack, wallet or dopp kit. The store emphasizes quality, design, and good service, with many options to choose from.

4- WANT Apothecary

The original location of the Canadian lifestyle boutique, here you can find a curated selection of clothing, skincare, beauty and accessory brands, such as their own brand Essentials, which focuses on accessories for travel, and Byredo, a high end fragrance brand. The store is the perfect place to find a new addition to your routine or a splurge to commemorate your trip!

Bota Bota

Anchored in the Old Port of Montreal, Bota Bota, spa sur l’eau offers its passengers the healing benefits of a spa while being lulled by the natural movement of the St Lawrence River.

Why we love it:
The views of the Old Port and of the city, you just can’t beat the location! Awesome specials every day of the week, whether you are looking to just enjoy the baths or pamper yourself all day long
Montreal has mastered the spa for both summer and winter, so don’t be shy to go even if there is a foot of snow outside

Things to keep in mind:
Bota Bota can get crowded, especially on weekends and the summer, so maybe take advantage of their off-peak specials instead.​​​​​​​

Address:
Since Bota Bota is a boat, it does not have a physical address. We are located at the corner of McGill and De La Commune West….on the water!

ST. PAUL HOTEL

Why we love it: Something of a trailblazer in a city swimming in bland business boltholes, Hotel St Paul offers a welcoming minimalism in Montreal’s hippest quarter. Occupying an old, bold Beaux Arts building, this swank sanctuary seamlessly blends touches of daring – a fire-lit cube glows over the lobby and floaty muslin drapes transport you to warmer climes – with the city’s history.

Things to keep in mind:
The bathrooms in the black suite and rooms XXX have not yet been renovated Small pets are welcome for a fee of CA$75.
