Okay, let me start this list of Canadian gifts with the number one gift for someone who loves Canada:

A trip to Canada!

So if you have a large budget, head over to Skyscanner and book a flight and hotel for the recipient.

You can also go to Viator and book a fun tour or activity for the recipient to do when they’re in Canada. For example a helicopter flight over Niagra Falls or whale watching tours.

And lastly, if you are not sure which type of activity the recipient likes, you can also go for the Viator gift card; The Global Experiences Card.

#2 Canadian outdoor clothes

But really all items from Canada Goose will make great Canadian-made gifts.

#3 Map of Canada
