Celebrate Canadian Design With These Holiday Gift Ideas

Finding the perfect gift can be a challenge, especially when that special someone on your gift-giving list has a carefully curated space. Luckily there is no shortage of Candian designers creating decor products that will make any space feel like Home. From economical to extravagant, these design-inspired gifts demonstrate your friends your savvy design eye and good taste! 




For The Host With The Most:

For the person who always welcomes you into their home with open arms, give the gift of comfort and warmth with Hudson Bay's iconic multi-stripe blanket. Not only is this wool throw a part of Canadian design heritage, but it's incredibly durable, making it an excellent gift for those with a Muskokan hideaway or for those who would appreciate bringing cottage vibes into the big city.

A Gift For The Immaculate Home Owner:

Why not illuminate your love by giving an Aura Floor Lamp, the latest lighting release from Canadian Design Studio Shelter Bay. The company also creates modular lighting at an approachable price point if you're one of those gift-givers that can't help but keep a gift for yourself.

For The Armchair Architect:

Just because they didn't go to school for architecture doesn't mean they don't have a serious eye for a great design! The Press Mirror by Phillippe Malouin for Umbra does design doubly duty. From afar, the pressed stainless steel functions as a sculpture but grab it by the base, and it can be used as a hand-mirror. Here's looking at you!

For The Person Who Has Everything:

When you have unlimited time (or budget), then an off-the-rack item will never do - regardless of how well-designed it is! Heidi Earnshaw Design is one of Canada's most prolific woodworkers, and while one of her custom creations will set you back a pretty penny, it's hard to put a price tag on an heirloom.
