I recently came across a cool new gifting site on Instagram called Locate the Local. With Mother’s Day just a couple of weeks away, I wanted to share with you a lovely gift idea for the mom that loves all things made in Canada. It’s even a great gift idea for Canadians living far away missing stuff from their awesome country.
“Here at Locate the Local, our goal is to seek out the quirky, the unique, the genius and the tasty, all while keeping it Canadian. ”
How it works:
You see, it’s kind of like a welcome quarterly surprise. It’s like Christmas. You can subscribe month to month or subscribe for a full year of lovely, curated, high quality, unique items. Everything is made in Canada as I mentioned earlier. Boxes are $55 and filled with items you can taste, smell, wear, use and so much more. Go have a visit on Locate the Local on Instagram to see what they’ve sent in the past. I love it! I have my eye on the Manitoba Shrub Box as I’ve been wanting to try Abiding Citizen.
Here’s what I got in the April Box:
What a great box of treats from @locatethelocal I like my April surprise. To celebrate Canada’s 150th this months theme is a variety of hand made items across Canada. Tap photo for IG pages to these lovely artisanal shops. . #shoplocal #150Canada #locatethelocal

I love my Mailin bracelet as I have yet to take it off. It’s dainty and sweet and I’d like a few more. I just started using vinegar for cleaning my home, so I was happy to see this BC company called Spiffy Naturals. The snacks were a hit with the kids and me from Zak Organics and I’ll be saving that birthday card for a dear friend from Rhubarb Paper Company and BKind is absolutely lovely too, you must check out their skincare. I discovered Canadian brands I never heard of!
The next box is coming in July and I look forward to getting one. After all, Canada is turning 150!
I love finding new brands to shop with, promote and discover. I hope you do too and will check out Locate the Local. Have you heard of them before?#LocatetheLocal offers Canadian's unique products from across the land! Check out their quarterly… Click To Tweet
