Gift Ideas for your Partner December 14 2014




This is the busiest time of year for Givopoly as our elves work to get your presents delivered on time. (We completely understand why Santa takes a break all year long!) Luckily we have a team of over 120 local entrepreneurs helping us surprise and delight all over Ottawa.  If you are like 72% of holiday shoppers, you aren't quite done of your shopping yet, but your wallet is getting light.  


Here are some of our favourite budget friendly gift ideas for your partner this season.


For him:
























  1. It's fair to say most Canadian guys love their beer.  This Local Craft Beer Gratitude Pack features delicious local brew and a chalk board wall perfect for personalizing with a sweet message. Consider adding a gift certificate for a Brew Donkey Local Brewery Tour and he'll have something fun to look forward to! 
  2. For your good lookin' fella, this Guys Survival Kit from Warren Chase Urban Retreat is sure to keep him stylin'.  
  3. Does he love his coffee?  Hava Java personal slow-drip from Happy Goat Coffee is perfect for the man who really enjoys a good cup of coffee.

Here are more great gift ideas for him.


    For her:

    1. Ladies love their jewelry.  Choose from a gorgeously affordable piece of fine jewelry from Bija Bijoux. 
    2. Does she love wine?  Most do!  Santa's list of Wine Picks includes a personal wine journal where she can take note of her favorite finds throughout the year ehead.  Or how about membership in the Wine Lovers club?
    3. Indulge her luxurious side with this Romantic Spa Gift Set.  

    Here are more great gift ideas for her.


    Gender Neutral gifts:

    1. If you prefer to gift an experience, you can choose a gift certificate from one of our many local businesses. There are restaurants, spas, and experiences.
    2. If your recipient has an appreciation for quality food - our Urban Gourmet Foodie Gift Box is a gift that keeps on giving.  A gorgeous box full of local artisan gourmet foods, this gift also supports the Ottawa Food Bank.  
    3. Fitness is hot right now.  Modus Vivendi CrossFit gift certificates are trending in Ottawa!
