This Canada Day, why not celebrate with a few of our favourite Canadian-themed products?
Some of these pieces may not be as intrinsically Canadian as hockey hair, long johns or loonies, but they are still representative of our country, and are available right here in the True North. Whether you’re sitting on a dock or staying in the city to watch fireworks, these picks are sure to infuse patriotism into your long-weekend celebrations.
We’re all familiar with the iconic Muskoka chair, but check out this fresh take, known as the Kawartha chair. Named after the beautiful cottage country near Peterborough, Ontario, this chair is made of cedar sourced from British Columbia and is built by a local craftsman. Kick back in one of these beauties with an ice-cold Caesar in hand for the ultimate in relaxation. Available through Stony Lake Furniture Co.: $595.
The perfect accessory for your Canada Day celebrations is a Canadian-made charcuterie board. This one (first slider, second image) is particularly large, making it ideal for entertaining the whole clan. Made in Alberta, these boards are geometric with their striking etched lines. Available through OnOurTable: $90.
A piece of authentic Canadiana, the Redesigned Medalta ‘Canadian Graffiti’ Plate is part of a permanent collection in the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau, Quebec. Available through MADE: $56.00.
A collection of Canadian picks wouldn’t be complete without the stripes (but hold the stars). This double-walled bottle will keep your cold beverages icy and your hot drinks steamy. Be sure to snap a photo and share it online with the Hudson’s Bay Company hashtag #StripeSpotting. Available through Hudson’s Bay: $35.00.
If you think that Prince Edward Island is known only for potatoes and Anne of Green Gables, you’re wrong. MacAusland throws have been in production since 1932 (slightly younger than our girl, Anne). Made from 100 per cent virgin wool, these throws are a stylish staple for chilly summer nights under the stars. Available through Drake General Store: $99.00.
Heading to the cottage for the long weekend? Or perhaps checking out some great campsites? Lucky you! Keep cozy by the bonfire with these retro toques – a collaboration between the Tuck Shop and Norquay Co. Available at retailers throughout Toronto and online: $35.00.
Happy Canada Day, fellow Canucks!
