Inspired by nature. Inspired by life.
Welcome to A Pleasant Thought.
Thank you for stopping by,
to get to know us through our products.
Handcrafted by us.
The importance of practicing self-care and self-love in beautiful and impactful ways is at the core of A Pleasant Thought.
To create such impact, we strive to find balance between the delights and beauty of nature and the delights and nature of beauty in all of our products.
We believe in self-care routines that collectively inspire the body, mind, and soul, through relaxing experiences, blissful sensations, and of course, everlasting pleasant thoughts.
We believe self-care is the art of self-love, and
our mission is to spread love. Always.
A Pleasant Thought began in 2016 in a tiny apartment by High Park in Toronto, Canada. Away from the constraints and stresses of our 9-5, we practiced self-care by creating—whether art, jewelry, candles, or soaps—in our own style, in our own way. Sustainable. Clean. Wholesome. Elegant.
Over time, this creative and therapeutic outlet began taking up more space than we (or our tiny apartment) bargained for. So, we joined the online marketplace. And we sold a variety of our handcrafted goods and gifts tailored for self-care—in our own style, in our own way, not exactly on our own terms. Remarkably, we received an overwhelming response from customers just like you. It was positive and it was telling. And it was simple. Self-care wasn't a luxury, it was a need. And it was in need of some inspiration.
So here we are. A Pleasant Thought. Now, a family business. Handcrafting and curating self-care goods and gifts. In our own style, in our own way, on our own terms. Sustainable. Clean. Wholesome. Elegant. Liberated.
And we thank you for supporting us along the way.
Practicing self-care through creativity was and will always be at the heart of A Pleasant Thought. The future of A Pleasant Thought is committed to continuing this journey and bringing it full circle. Sharing our process, mental health awareness, and giving back are just a few of the projects we are currently working on. A brick-and-mortar shop, where we can meet and greet and thank you all for your support in person is also in the works! And we hope you take the walk with us along the way!
Our commitment to providing the highest quality and inspired handcrafted goods for our customers comes with the hope that you, too, will practice self care through creativity in your everyday life.
To inspire and be inspired.
Body, mind, and soul.
We drew “A Pleasant Thought” straight out of the sonnets of Romantic poet, William Wordsworth’s, To the Daisy, a poem dedicated to the splendor of the humble flower: the daisy.
The Poet’s darling.
We meet thee, like a pleasant thought, When such are wanted.*
A gentle reminder that beauty, inspiration, and joy can be found in the simplest of things when we are truly open to them. And a gentle reminder to you that every smile truly does begin with a pleasant thought.
*To the Daisy, 1802
