Island Fever

What It Is: I know most people don’t associate Canada with a breezy, tropical vibe – but the team at DUFMOD is hoping to shake up that perception. Specializing in tropical themed decor products with a sustainable sensibility, this Alberta-based brand is a perfect Canadian destination to shop when you’re craving a little taste of the tropics. Working with artisans around the globe, they carry cool items like these soft multi-purpose seagrass baskets. Available in a range of sizes and colours, these nifty baskets have loads of potential, including being used for:

  • Storage (you can easily stash some cozy blankets inside)
  • Shopping (bring one to the farmer’s market!)
  • Beach Trips (strong plus resists sandiness)
  • Decor (they can wrap around plant pots for a pretty cover)
  • Picnic (easily sturdy enough for all your drinks and essentials)

This is just one of the products DUFMOD carries of course, and it happens to be perfect for a range of gift-giving occasions. Keep an eye on the site to spot new items while they last – DUFMOD’s exclusive imports are hella popular and can sell out in a flash.

Who It’s For: I love DUFMOD’s seagrass baskets as housewarming gifts, but they also work well price point-wise for everything from birthdays to weddings to thank yous to anniversaries.

What It Costs: From $32.89 USD.

Where It’s At: Peruse DUFMOD’s complete shop here.
