If you have a friend who’s from Canada and they have a birthday coming up, choosing a gift with a Canadian theme will undoubtedly make them smile. Vancouver and Toronto gift baskets are easy to find, but if you want something more personalized than this, you don’t have to despair because doing so is a lot easier than you think. Let’s take a look at some of these gifts.
1. Latt’Eh! Mug
A latte mug is always a welcome gift, but this one is made with a spelling that’s a bit different and that will be appreciated by any Canadian. It comes in the colours of the Canadian flag — white with a red interior and red letters on the front. For a different take on the word “latte” and a practical gift that anyone can use, this mug is a great idea.
2. “36 Hours in the USA and Canada” Book
Published by the New York Times, this book gives anyone living in North America tons of ideas for short trips to locations they might not know about otherwise. You can find the book on Amazon and other sites, so it’s easy to find. It is both an attractive and practical coffee table book that you’ll find yourself referring to every time you decide to get away for a little while.
3. Beaver Pool Floatie
The beaver is a much beloved animal in Canada, and this funny but useful gift is round and comfortable and will keep you afloat while you’re in the pool. The beaver face on the front of the floatie is both silly and adorable at the same time, and its attention to detail may surprise you. If you spend a lot of time in the water during the summer months, you need this floatie!
4. Solar-Powered Waving Mountie
This adorable waving Mountie can be placed on your car’s back window or even a window in your home. People will notice it immediately and smile as soon as they see it. The Mountie itself is realistically dressed with a real Mountie uniform, and it’s inexpensive enough for you to include in various Canadian and Toronto gift baskets that are already filled with other goodies. It is a truly unique and fun gift that all Canadians will love.
5. Wall Clocks
There are numerous great-looking wall clocks that Canadian citizens, or others who love the country, will enjoy. Many of them have a maple leaf in the centre, while others contain a picture of the Canadian flag. Some, in fact, include a picture of the Canadian flag with the U.S. flag as a background, while others have beautiful scenery and ice hockey pictures on them. If you want a wall clock with a design that reminds you of Canada, it won’t be hard to find.
When it comes to handbags, you’ll never run out of bags with Canadian designs on them. This includes hockey pictures, radio station logos, Canadian geese, Canadian flags, RCMP mounties, Canadian dollars, and so much more. Fortunately, the bags come in all sizes and designs, so regardless of the type of purse you’re after, you shouldn’t have any problems finding it.
7. Canadian Jewellery
If your gift recipient loves jewellery, you’re in luck because there are a lot of jewellery pieces on the market with a Canadian theme. Look for earrings, watches, necklaces, rings, and bracelets with things such as flags, logos, maple leaves, and so much more on them. You can also find charms and other one-of-a-kind gifts to give to these people, and every one of the gifts will put a smile on their faces.
