At Givopoly Ottawa we love supporting local businesses. Why do we love our local businesses so much? Because they provide the best stuff and there is no need to search far away for the perfect gift, it’s right in this great city. Here are 5 of our favorite local businesses we know you will love too.



Art-Is-In Bakery

This local gem has been the talk of the town for a few years now. Located in an unlikely warehouse type building near Little Italy it’s most certainly worth the trip for it’s delicious Parisian-inspired breads and pastries. But if you can’t get to Art-Is-In Bakery, let us bring it to you! The Art-Is-In At Home gift basket comes fully loaded with Art-Is-In granola, espresso beans, four assorted pastries, a dynamite half baguette, and a sourdough, enough to leave you full for hours and certainly wanting more.



Alta Vista Flowers

Why do we love Alta Vista Flowers? Not only for their beautiful and unique flower arrangements that are perfect for every occasion, but because they think out of the box for flower deliveries. They created the Bucket of Junk arrangement that is a work of art. This bucket is filled with every type of candy and chocolate you can think of and is guaranteed to make any occasion a little bit sweeter. We love working with local companies that come up with amazing unique ideas!



Kichesippi Beer

Ottawa has a refined taste for excellent craft beer. Kichesippi Beer is proudly brewed in Ottawa and is now available for purchase at the LCBO in tall cans. Anyone who has sampled this beer knows that it is incredible and worthy of being a gift for any occasion. The Double Growler Bag offers the recipient two 60oz growlers of brewer’s choice beer in the branded Kichesippi carrying bag. This is the perfect gift to have delivered to someone on a Friday afternoon to start their weekend off right.

Well we are proud to have a partnership with The Cupcake Lounge because they produce some of the most delicious cupcakes available for purchase in the City of Ottawa. With options to personalize cupcakes with a touching message or just to enjoy the delicious flavor options their bakers come up with you will never be disappointed with a cupcake from The Cupcake Lounge.
