With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, you might find yourself with limited options for picking a gift for your honey. Here in Ontario, we’re still in lockdown so forward-thinking is certainly required before placing an order for pickup or delivery.
Having recently launched the Canadian Showcase series, I thought this would be the perfect time to remind you of some fabulous Canadian businesses that provide unique gift ideas. By shopping local, not only are you supporting our economy, but you’ll also likely get your package so much sooner without the hassle of cross-border delivery.

Jewellery is always a good choice and something you’ll keep for years to come. Designer Judi Patson from Even Design creates unique pieces that are fun, whimsical and absolutely one of a kind. I’ve been a fan of this brand for a number of years and I think you will be too!
