Top 5 Stocking Stuffers that say Vancouver

Whether you’re buying for someone naughty or nice, stuff this year’s stockings with great gifts that say Vancouver.

1. They’re back! Nearly one year after Vancouver’s biggest party you can still purchase a pair of signature “red mittens” from the Bay, and support Canada’s athletes ($10). Note however that these are different from the original Olympic mittens. Those are no longer available (unless of course you’re a regular reader of Inside Vancouver, in which case you would know that we have a few pairs we’ll be giving away in the weeks ahead!)

2. Travellers Deck is your go-to guide for eating and shopping in Vancouver ($11.95). This deck offers a number of discounts and freebies to 100 venues in five distinct neighbourhoods throughout the city.

3. A bottle of mouth-watering birch syrup from the Edible British Columbia retail store, located on Granville Island ($7.95 for 50 ml). Its slight bittersweet notes give it a more complex, less cloyingly sweet taste than maple syrup. This syrup is so good you can savour it by the spoonful!

4. A copy of City of Glass, a book by Vancouver-based author Douglas Coupland. Featuring short essays and photographs of Vancouver, each essay deals with a different aspect of the city, such as the glass condominium towers which dominate the Vancouver skyline and give the book its title. Available at the Vancouver Art Gallery ($24.95).

5. A bottle of Osake’s Junmai Nama sake ($27). This sake is handcrafted in an artisan studio located at Railspur Alley on Granville Island.
