This Provincial Life


What It Is: This year is Canada’s 150th Jubilee, meaning you’re going to be seeing a lot of Canadiana pride items popping up at your fave retailers. I will of course be highlighting tons of Canadian gift ideas as I always do, but don’t be surprised to see an influx of Canadian-themed items like today’ gift idea. These cuddly unisex sweatshirts are emblazoned with a vintage jersey-style script, highlighting the Canadian provinces and their incorporation dates. From the provinces born close to the same time as our nation (I see you Manitoba) to our most recent addition, Nunavut, there’s a cute way to show your provincial pride!

Who It’s For: Your friend that moved (or is moving) away to remember their roots. Your born here, raised here spouse that loves their home province. Your just-visiting cousins from another nation, to celebrate the slice of Canada they’ve gotten a taste of this year.

What It Costs: $98 each

Where It’s At: Drake General Store

Bonus entry into my Chatbooks giveaway – tell me in the comments below, would you nab one of these? Which province?
