A gift having to do with Canada can be a creative present whether someone is from the country or simply always wanted to go there. Canadian foods and drinks, sports memorabilia, maps and books, and a trip to Canada are all great ideas for a Canadian gift.
Food and Drinks
There are certain foods and drinks that are famously from Canada and would make great Canadian-themed gifts. Maple syrup, for example, is a sweet treat from Canada that also plays on the country's national symbol: the maple leaf. You can also give a six-pack of Canadian beer as a gift. Canada has hundreds of breweries, many of which sell beer in the United States. Some websites sell beer glasses and mugs with a Canadian logo, which would be a perfect addition to the beer gift.
If there's one thing Canadians love, it's sports. The country has many sports teams including hockey, Lacrosse, soccer and curling. Give a Canadian sports fan a jersey or hat from his favourite team. If he'll be in Canada, buy him tickets to a game. You can also give him sports equipment, such as a hockey stick or soccer ball. If he doesn't know how to play, give him a gift card for lessons at a local recreation centre.
Maps and Books
Give the gift of information with books and maps about Canada. Tour books can offer insight into regions of the country, including suggestions for places to sleep, eat and site-see. A coffee-table photography book with images of Canada will take the recipient on a visual journey. Maps are another informational gift for those interested in Canada. The recipient can map out a journey or highlight all the places she wants to go.
Trip to Canada
No gift would be more Canadian than a trip to the country. Think about what the recipient would like to do in the country and tailor the trip around that. For example, book a ski trip to Vancouver for the adventuresome type, or schedule a shopping weekend in Montreal for a person who loves fashion. Just make sure the recipient will be available to leave on a vacation during that time. If you're not sure when he'll be able to go, buy him a gift card for a hotel stay or a plane ticket voucher.
