Gift Yourself for Canada 150

April 12, 2017

Hey Canadians, you've been working hard for the past 150 years building this wonderful nation, so why not take this summer off?

Forget about work for a bit and go have a campfire by the lake in the Kawarthas. Take a road trip to the East Coast. Get lost in woods of British Columbia. Hang out at a friend's cottage in Muskoka. Just do anything that reconnects you with the things, place, and people that you love. 

For those looking to get lost in adventure this summer, our products are a great place to start.

Our Camp Blankets and Hiking Socks by Muttonhead will keep you cozy during those cool nights by the fireside, while our Vintage Map Co. Pillows will allow an amazing sleep and conversation wherever you lie down camping. 

When the sun rises, our rustic North Standard Trading Post Coffee Mugs will hold your campfire coffee as you jot down your memories in our Canadiana Notebooks by Smitten Kitten. Have little ones with you? Let them colour their little hearts out in our Canada 150 Colouring Book by Paul Covello or learn about their nation in his Canada ABC Book. 

If you're feeling a road trip, we recommend rocking some North Standard Trading Post apparel for a comfy and stylish journey. This Toronto company has been repping new Canadiana style since they started a few years ago. We carry their snazzy T-shirts and Snapback Hats rocking the classic bear logo. North Standard socks are also a stylish way to keep your feet warm and comfy on the hiking trail.

For those staying in their locale this summer, don't think there's no fun for you! As a homeware and furniture store, you could say it's our speciality to have goodies that inspire adventure at the home.

Candles can help your house smell like a campfire (Kindling by Purple Urchin), an evergreen tree (Balsam Fir by Woodsmoke & Olive), or the deep woods (Boreal Forest by Sprig). Our Frontier Collective Hanging Wood Discs are great to bring the cabin vibes home, while our Heart Stitched Maps by Sadie & June are a favourite among travellers looking to keep a memento of their favorite places (and people).

Speaking of artwork, the Cottage Country Paddle Print by ManMade Art is also perfect for any cottage country lover, while our License Plate Maps by Broken Stick are a favourite for all Canadians missing their home province. 

And this is just the tip of the iceberg! Browse our online store for even more Canadiana goods or feel free pop by our shop in Ottawa to get lost in exploring all these beautiful items.

We hope you can find that special piece of Canadiana to make this summer one of your best ones yet. 

Happy Birthday, Canada. Here's to an even better next 150 years.
