5 Canadian Gifts for the Holidays

Sarah Baeumler December 07, 2016 2 Comments

With the holiday season well under way, I am sure many of you are still trying to get inspiration for gift ideas, I know I am! It is very easy to look to various websites and stores when shopping for gifts, but I do try to get some gifts that are unique and come from a Canadian based business. So in my search for something different for those people I like to try and surprise at Christmas time, I found a few things that I wanted to share (and one thing that I am quite familiar with!!).

1. Handcrafted Village Juicery Ceramic Mugs - $30.00

This holiday gift brought to you by the Toronto based, Village Juicery and their partners, Akai Ceramic Studio is the ideal gift for anyone intersted in handmade items. The handmade ceramic mugs were a collaboration of the two companies and I have to say that they did a wonderful job. You can also add one of Village Juicery's seasonal drinks to make this the perfect present. This combination will allow your loved-one, a chance to warm their hands on a locally sourced and handmade delight this holiday.

2. Detour Coffee Subscription - from $28.00

As you know, I enjoy a subscription box, and this choice from Detour, is the perfect gift for the coffee lover in your life. You are able to set up a subscription on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis and choose the type of coffee they will receive. You can cancel at any time, or allow the recipient to carry on the subscription after a certain period. Either way, you will be giving the gift of coffee delivered directly to their door. Awesome!

3. The Peace Box (Large) - $100.00

This collection from the Peace Collective, based out of Toronto, is a superb gift for someone that needs a wardrobe update. They guarantee a box of goodies that is worth at least $200.00. The box includes two t-shirts, one crewneck sweater and two tanks and 1-2 special items. They also donate $10.00 of the $100.00 to their partner charity, Breakfast for Learning, who offer children in need a wholesome breakfast before they strat their day at school. All-in-all, this gift will bring joy to those who receive it and will put food on a plate for children across Canada. There is also a small option which is only $50.00.

4. I Wanna Be A Bear Tote Bag - $20.00

This cute tote bag from the created and cleverly named Toronto brand, Fox That. This could be a great gift for any age and could act as great stocking filler or main present for those who have a love of nature, especially bears. Fox That have a range of products that could be used as great gifts, and they even make wrapping paper, so you could easily buy the complete present here.

5. Sarah Delivered Box - $49.95 per month

It's a shameless plug, but my subscription is an excellent gift for all of your female family and friends. Every month, my team and I put together a collection of items, many of which are from Canadian brands, and send them to people all across Canada and the US. You can include gift messages and give just one box, if you cancel immediately. Or you can give a three month or six month gift subscription, which will ensure that the recipient will continue to love their Christmas present for months to come. AND IF YOU ORDER BY DECEMBER 15TH, 2016, WE WILL GET THE BOX TO YOU BY DECEMBER 23RD!

Happy shopping!

Hi, My wife and I have been married for 15 years. For over five years I have been dealing with jealousy issues because of flirting and her having emotional type affairs with other men. I felt like my masculinity was in question and if I said the way she was acting bothered me, it seemed to make matters worse or I was accused of being controling. During this period I did state I wanted a divorce if the behavior was not going to end: texting men a night, leaving for the weekend without letting me know where she was going or not responding to messages. We do have a son and basically it's been him and I for the last year on the weekends. She disconnected completely from being a good wife and mother. In April she said she wanted a separation and I said no we need to get into marriage counseling. We did try that, but she was not very responsive and didn't give any effort. Afterward she was adamant about separation and divorce. I continued to say no and that we needed to save our family. She presented a separation agreement and I had to hire a lawyer. Because of the above behavior my lawyer suggested a private investigator. The investigator discovered my wife was having an affair with a close friend of the family who also is married with children. We know the extended families. I feel like I should tell this man's wife about what happened. This adultery has devastated me emotionally, I feel betrayed and I'm physically drained. I know my wife is passionate in terms of her sexuality, and I can't get the thought of them out of my head. It makes me question my own manhood, and I feel very inferior or that he must be a better lover or what ever. The problem is my wife pursued him. She would go to him and she lured him into this adultery. I felt this was coming for some time and could not stop it. She was not only lying to me but also to our son about what she was doing and where she was going. My family is important, my son loves her and as crazy as it sounds so do I. Can you respond with a course of action on how to proceed? I was still have a very huge place in my heart for her. so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my wife came to me and apologized for the wrongs she did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I, my son and my wife are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.

Hi Sarah! I would also add a vote for the Sahajan discovery kit that includes some awesome skin essentials.
