If you’ve ever played any version of this popular card game, you’ll know that Cards Against Humanity is not for the faint of heart. It may leave you shocked. It may leave you horrified.

Purdy’s Taste Of Canada Gift Box

Great Canadian Gift Ideas

I tried my very first Purdy’s chocolate out in Vancouver, BC in 2000, and have been a huge fan ever since. I was more than a little excited when I heard they were opening up shop here in Ottawa a couple of years ago. For chocolate, and Canada lovers, I don’t think you can go wrong with Purdy’s Taste of Canada Gift Box. And if for some reason your recipient doesn’t like their chocolates…I’ll gladly offer to help you get rid of them!


Canada Handbag Tote Bag By Robin Ruth

Great Canadian Gift Ideas

When you love Canada as much as I do, you like to shout it loud and proud, right? These Robin Ruth Canada Handbag Totes, are designed in Canada, and come in your choice of pink, blue, yellow, and multi-colour. Oh Canada!


ROOTS Trans Canada Urban Pouch Tribe

Great Canadian Gift Ideas

If subtle is more your gift recipient’s style, you probably can’t go wrong with this patriotic and stylish ROOTS pouch. With beautiful leather, bold stitching, and a classic look, this makes a great gift for proud Canadians.


Bed Bath and Beyond Oh Canada Throw Pillow

I fell in love with this pillow. It reminds me of the pillows I saw this summer at Canada’s Home. You really can’t get more Canadian than this when it comes to adding a touch of Canada to your home decor. The anthem, the maple leaf, the red and white. This pillow is perfect for those cold winter days when you snuggle up on the couch and you want to give your favourite country a hug!


Laura Secord Recipe In A Jar – Molten Chocolate Cake

Great Canadian Gift Ideas

Laura Secord you had me at “molten chocolate cake”. Wait. Who am I kidding? Laura Secord has had my heart ever since I was a kid and Santa used to bring me foil wrapped Christmas chocolates. I think Ms. Secord may have just upped the ante with her recipe jars though. These would make a great gift for the “hostess with the mostest” this holiday season!

Cuff-Daddy Canadian Flag Canada Cuff Links

Great Canadian Gift Ideas

Yes, I admit it. These made the cuff…I mean cut…because of the name “Cuff-Daddy”. However, I also love the look of these classy Canadian flag cuff links. Imagine your man in a beautiful black suit, cherry red tie, and these stylish cuff links. Beauty, eh?


CBC Retro Socks

Great Canadian Gift Ideas

Last year, while looking to get my aunt something “different” for Christmas, I stumbled upon the CBC shop, and spotted the most fabulous CBC Radio tote bag. It was perfect for my aunt, as it was covered in the names of all the CBC Radio programs she listens to every day. So, for the CBC fan in your house, or for those that love CBC shows, be sure to check out their other great Canadian gift ideas.


Canada 150 Coin Collection

Great Canadian Gift Ideas

What a great gift this Canada 150 Coin Collection would make for the coin collector in your house this Christmas. It also makes a special keepsake gift for anyone you know who had a baby born during the year of Canada’s 150th birthday.


Hudson Bay Canada Olympic Gear

Great Canadian Gift Ideas

I got hooked on Canadian Olympic gear the first year that ROOTS designed our athlete’s uniforms a number of years ago. Since then, I’ve made it a mission of mine to purchase at least one item from each of the subsequent Olympic games. Why not consider a gift of Team Canada Olympic gear this Christmas, as we head into 2018, and get ready for the Winter Olympics in Pyongyang.


My HOME Apparel Home And Native Land Crew Neck Sweater


Great Canadian Gift Ideas

A recent quick trip to Halifax for BlogJam saw me come home with a prize I won from the fabulous people at My HOME Apparel. I am now officially an honourary “Nova Scotian” thanks to my Nova Scotia HOME t-shirt. I love my t-shirt but, I also love all the great Canadian HOME apparel they offer on their site, like the Home and Native Land Crew Neck Sweater. Check out your own HOME gift ideas for Canadians on your list!


Parks Canada Castor And Pollux Red Chair View Sign

Great Canadian Gift Ideas

Last year we featured some fabulous Parks Canada gear that we received from the Parks Canada Shop just in time for Christmas. We fell in love with their quality clothing and are still wearing it this year – except for the sweatshirt I received. I worked hard to ruin that one by getting a stain on it that I just couldn’t get out. Grrrr. Anyway, if you’ve got a Parks Canada/outdoors lover on your list, the Parks Canada Shop has plenty of great Canadian gift ideas for you!


Lazy One Canada Moose Hockey Flap Jacks Onesie

Great Canadian Gift Ideas

If you are looking for fun pyjama’s, Lazy One Canada’s got you covered! I fell in love with Lazy One Canada way back when I purchased a “Chocolate Moose” pyjama set. I wore it so much, I literally wore holes in both the top and bottoms. For those cold Canadian winter nights, may I suggest Lazy One’s signature “flap jacks” onesies? After all, we Canadians love onesies, don’t we?


One last suggestion. I had the chance to pop into the Hockey Hall of Fame gift shop in Toronto this past spring, and if you are looking for some fantastic gifts for your favourite hockey fan, this is the place to shop. The in-store selection is incredible, and it appears to be just as good online. You are sure to find something great for your favourite hockey fan in this shop!

    Some nice suggestions but the Bed bath beyond Oh Canada pillow is imported which likely means made in China but plastered with Canadian symbols. If I buy a Canadian product then I want it made in canada or at the very least brought in by a company with Canadian ownership like HBC, Roots etc.

      It was not my intent to feature “made in Canada” or “owned by Canadian companies” merchandise, but simply to highlight some great “Canada-inspired” gifts. I did not verify any of the products I highlighted (as to where they were made) and I’m sure many of them aren’t made here, unfortunately 🙁 . Sadly, even Hudson Bay itself is no longer owned by a Canadian. Thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts, Shelley!
