Canada may not have had as long of a history as some of the other countries around the world, but what they do have is a unique culture. While it may be easy to go back to the gift receivers’ roots to find them a present, there are several things that are distinctly Canadian. From their hockey to their plaid patterns, here are a selection of gifts perfect for the Canadian in your life.
Despite the fact that lacrosse is Canada’s official sport, it is definitely hockey that has undoubtedly won the hearts of most. The Hockey Puck Bottle Opener is constructed as a game quality, Canadian-made hockey puck that is ultra durable and could potentially be used on the rink if all other pucks have been exhausted. That being said, it's probably best-suited to its intended purpose — cracking open beers just before the start of a big game.
I’m sorry to say that Canadians are never tired of saying sorry in any situation, regardless of whether they are in the right or wrong. For this reason, the Sorry Board Game is a perfect outlet for them to let out their tirades of sorry, shouting the word from across the table with glee as they legitimately have an excuse to say so.
With Movember coming to an end and the winter weather coming in full force this year, it may be ideal to keep the moustache and beard on for some warmth throughout the season. It is, however, unacceptable to turn up for work, or God forbid, your parents' annual holiday dinner with completely unkempt facial hair. The Beard Grooming & Trimming Kit saves you from having to worry about anything as there is no better kit to have you itching to head home and pamper yourself.
Canada is adored for many reasons — but first and foremost for its beautiful nature — bringing in visitors from around the world to admire the bountiful forest, mountains, and water that she has to offer. To keep your Canadian feeling at home no matter where they go, get them a National Geographic 2018 Calendar for pride of place on their bedroom wall.
As mentioned, travelers come from all corners of the world to experience beautiful, natural Canada. It is only logical then, that they would take the time to hike and walk through the natural landmarks that surround its land. However, to keep safe and have a preventative measure in place, it is always better to be one step ahead and carry the Nightfall Kit with you. This gift set also comes with a matching toque so you look the part while keeping warm too.
To better appreciate and understand the beer available on the market today, why not experiment and mix up some beer in the comfort of your own home? Brooklyn Brew Shop offers Beer Making Kits that have all of the equipment and ingredients so that even a beginner can brew their own beer. After this experience, I guarantee you will either have a newfound respect for those who craft beer. And who knows — it may even inspire you to set up your own brewery.
Many people have likely tried kayaking at some point in their lives, but many cannot be bothered to purchase a rack and manually mount a heavy kayak on their car every time they want to explore the waters. Luckily, the Intex Explorer K2 Kayak eliminates the need to do either of these by creating an inflatable kayak instead. With each trip, simply pump it up to go exploring, and deflate it before packing it back up to head on home. It's never been easier than this!
The best way to freshen up a room may be to spend a whole day decluttering and then sanitizing it — but this is by no means the most efficient method. Instead, we recommend cleaning as you go, using the NEST Fragrances Reed Diffuser to keep your place smelling fresh all day long. This fragrance is Birchwood Pine, reminding you you're never far from Canada's beautiful outdoors.
In case you're not aware, a Caesar is an iconic Canadian cocktail enjoyed year round from coast to coast. Caesars: The Essential Guide to Your Favourite Cocktail contains over 50 variations of the tasty concoction. Let this book inspire your favorite Canadian to become the next great Caesar master — and bag yourself some free drinks in the process.
Unfortunately, when it comes to fashion and style, Canadians don’t always have a knack for it, BUT what they do have is a pattern that is distinctly Canadian: plaid. Find your snuggle buddy and cozy up to the fireplace in this Buffalo Plaid Onesie (with a sherpa lined hood!) for the best winter experience. There should, of course, be no question as to whether or not you get a matching one for your partner too!
