Capture the Flag: Canada Day Fun with MEC

After Father’s Day comes well, Canada Day. And while normally not a huge gift-giving occasion, with this year being a huge celebration across Canada, everyone and their dog has a gift idea for you to treat yourself or your loved ones to show off their Canadian pride. Expect to see quite a few Canada 150 gift ideas over the next two weeks leading up to the big day – and of course, July will once again be a very Canadian-focused month!

MEC Canada 150

Today I’m highlighting a few awesome ideas from MEC. I like the approach of Canada 150 things not necessarily being so on the nose. A hint of maple leaf red is all it takes to really show your pride in my book – and these 4 gift ideas are perfect for use in July 1st and beyond.

Coghlan’s Canadian Flag Patch – $3.90Sew it onto your luggage when traveling or add it to a quilt or jacket for some Canadiana pride. Get one for all the kids to add to their backpacks for a fun July 1st party favour!

MEC Camp Together Table Cloth / Picnic Ground Sheet – $25Perfect for spreading out as you stake out the perfect spot to catch July 1st fireworks. Created in Victory Red this cheery cover is a trunk essential.

MEC Outpost Duffle – $95Summer holidays are just around the corner. Why not grab a lightweight yet rugged duffel to get you from Point A to Point B. You can also use it to stash snacks and bug spray while catching Canada Day festivities!

Nalgene Canada 150 Water Bottle – $16.25Yeah I said not too on the nose, but this water bottle is too good not to include. Hopefully it’s sizzling hot on July 1st – and you can use this cool water bottle (in two colours!) to stay hydrated.

Score an extra entry into last week’s Black & Decker Father’s Day giveaway! Tell me in the comments below, which of these Canada Day-ready gift ideas rocks your world?
