Fun Loving Gifts That Are Truly Canadian
The Milk Bag Cutter “Snip”
Not to be confused with any other household tool, this is a milk bag cutter. These beauties are used for cutting the corners off of the milk bag. Yes, our milk comes in bags! When you are finished, simply use the magnet to stick it back on the fridge for easy access.
The Milk Bag Organizer
So now that we are familiar with how our larger supplies of milk are sold (in a 1 litre bag, of course!), you can organize these bags simply and easily in your fridge. Here is the milk bag organizer.
The Milk Bag Pitcher
What else holds milk in a bag? The milk bag pitcher holds the bag upright to reduce any spillage or sagging while pouring. After all, you cannot simply place the bag in the fridge on its own!
Tim Hortons CANADA 150 Years Ceramic Mug
Once upon a time, there was a hockey player named Tim Horton. He hailed from the province of Ontario, where he and others founded a coffee-and-doughnut shop called Tim Horton’s. This became a cornerstone piece of Canadian history. Recently, the company was purchased by a non-Canadian entity, however, Canadians will always fondly remember Tim Horton, and what he made into his legacy.
Celebrate Canadian + Coffee with this mug.

Yes, ketchup is a flavor of chips only available in the great white North. This interesting creation was introduced in the 70s and has proven its value to Canadians to this day.

The Kinder Surprise is actually an Italian inspired treat, but it’s only available in Canada on this continent! Laws prohibit non-edible products from being inside edible products in the land to the south, so Canadians embrace the chocolate with the toy inside.
