Shop Canada

November 24, 2015

I’m a big fan of my country.

Wide open spaces, endless culture and amazingly talented creators, entrepreneurs and artisans.

And this Christmas I’ll be holiday gift shopping for my friends and family, exclusively Canadian!

These are some of my favourite products from across the Canada!

From West to East.

Victoria Gin

This boutique style distillery has developed a style of Oaked Gin.

Oak Casked Aged, this gin leaves the overpowering juniper taste behind (what people often refer to as Christmas Tree taste).

What’s left is a very unique style gin with a warm oaky flavour profile with notes of vanilla & caramel

Vancouver Candle Co.

If you’ve ever visited Vancouver you’re sure to have fallen in love with 1 or 2 of their interesting suburbs.

From their original shops and restaurants to their friendly locals, each one has its unique flair.

And now, you can re-live your travel with a scented locally made, 100% soy candle with a scent that will remind you of the community you love most.

Hillberg & Berk

Move over T & Co. this collection is a favourite of the Queen! In 2013, Saskatchewan based owner/designer Rachel Mielke was commissioned to create a unique brooch for Her Majesty. And since that day Elizebeth has been spotted wearing it on several occasions.

This Saskatchewan born collection has something for everyone.

Classic and limited edition pieces that will have you sparkling right at your next holiday party.

Their Sparke Ball earrings are by far the company’s most well spotted item and with justfull cause.

They go with everything! From casual to black tie, these earrings are a must for every woman.

Bakers Krate

Hello sweet delicious Winnipeg!

This one of kind monthly subscription offers the opportunity for Canadians to taste their wares!

Each month a selection of local baking from some of the city’s best bakers is curated into a well balance confection box of tastiness!

This is a gift that’s almost to good to be true!

Swell Made Co

Each  year Toronto hosts one of the country’s largest groups of artisans at The One of a Kind Show

Thousands of local vendors arrive with very unique had crafted products. And Swell Made Co. cards and prints are one of my favourites.

Produced on heavy card stock with gold ink, their fun and whimsical prints are playful & perfect for framing.

And coming soon, a FAB collaboration with this amazing brand!

Her items are hand crafted and indeed One of a Kind!

Frank & Oak

This Montreal based men’s clothier is making its way across Canada with its quaint boutiques

Creative fabrics, classic styles and an unbeatable price point will have the guy on your list looking fab! (This is one of my favourite clothing brands)…

Mr. Fab anada

  1. You have such great style and ideas. Looking for the Rockies plates from BT this morning. Where do I find them. Would LOVE to win a prize too!

  2. To be honest it’s hard to choose just one. I’ld love to win Bakers Krate , then Victoria Gin and of course Vancouver Candle Co. All this will = romantic evening on a cozy winter evening.

  3. I like the plates with the mountain scenery and the Hillberg & Berk earrings are fabulous enough for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, how beyond marvellous!

  4. I’ve never liked gin because of that strong juniper flavour so I’d love to try the Victoria Gin and finally enjoy a G&T!

  5. Thanks for the awesome giveaway, I just downloaded the Giftagram app and it’s fantastic!

    These are all amazing picks, but I’d absolutely love to try the Frank & Oak menswear. That shirt looks great! Fingers crossed. 🙂

Looking forward to reading your comments!
