It’s the end of December. You’re panicking. You can’t re-gift that old bottle of wine in the kitchen, and if you get your in laws a toaster again well...they won’t be your in laws for much longer.
So, what should you do?
In true Canadian startup fashion, we’ve compiled a list of some of our best last minute gifts inspired by the country we proudly call home.
DUER | No Sweat Jogger in Oxblood
If you haven’t already gotten your hands on these (which we hope isn’t the case), our No Sweat Jogger in Oxblood has been a fan favourite for quite some time, and now with more seasonal colour choices, this pant makes an awesome gift for just about anyone.
Herschel Supply Co. | Grove Backpack
Have a traveller in your life? Well look no further.
Our friends over at Herschel have been seamlessly fusing function and fashion (sound familiar?) to create awesome travel accessories since 2009, and they’ve totally outdone themselves this year.
One of our favs is the Grove Backpack a staple in many wardrobes already. We love The Ash Rose - Velvet Collection. Is there anything more festive than velvet? Nope, there isn’t.
Vancouver Candle Co. | Gastown Soy Candle
No matter the time of year, you really can’t go wrong with a candle. Luckily for those who need some last minute gifts, the Vancouver Candle Co. has some great, festive scents.
Maybe we’re a tad biased, but the Gastown scent is our hands down favourite. With hints of Tocabbo, Black Pepper, and Amber, this fragrance is an awesome accompaniment for a Winter night in.
JJ Bean | A Coffee Subscription
Coffee is our fuel. Literally. So, when we heard there was a coffee subscription service from one of our local favs JJ Bean, we went nuts.
With new festive blends like their Christmas Reserve, now is the perfect time to get your favourite coffee lover hooked on some Canadian coffee.
If all else fails, there’s always gift cards. Another fail proof gift idea.
Many retailers, including yours truly, also feature amazing gift card promotions right around the Holiday season. Maybe we’re a bit partial, but we think we’re dishing out a pretty good deal. You can take a look here.
--There you have it. A last minute all Canadian Gift Guide that is sure to brighten even the biggest Grinch’s day. From all of us here at DU/ER we hope you have an awesome Holiday season. Here’s to more adventures and more fun in the New Year!
