Business Development Bank of Canada Survey Touts Shopping Online
The chances are if you’re reading this article, you already understand why buying from an online gift shop generally, and one that features Made in Canada products like our Warm Buddy items specifically, is a great idea. However, if you need a quick refresher on the advantages of both, the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) recently published some of their findings just prior to the Christmas Gift season.
Although there were five trends that included consumers showing a preference for Canadian made items as the ethical and environmental choice outlined in the survey, these same respondents leaned toward the internet as an outstanding place to buy unique gifts.
Shopping from start to finish, right from the comfort of your own home is one of the biggest advantages to shopping online. When you consider the BDC survey also says that 46% of consumers do their research online, you’ll see why clicking on our site to get all of your Christmas gifts, offers a complete one-stop experience and the only place you’ll need.
The BDC also reports that 45% of consumers have recently made an effort to buy Canadian. We have that covered at What A Jewel with an excellent selection including wonderful Canadian brands like Pico Charlie Cole, Saxon Chocolate, Barefoot Venus, Pippalily, Dazzling Gourmet etc., to complement any holiday gatherings.

Here are a few easy ways to make holiday shopping for unique gifts less stressful
Tis the season to be jolly, and stressed out for a lot of holiday shoppers. Long lines, not knowing what to buy for that hard to please person on the list, and the general belt tightening that’s become the norm. When you’ve got those factors and others weighing on you, choosing Christmas gifts isn’t always all that much fun. Here’s a few ways to make it festive again.
Start by taking some of Saint Nick’s advice even if you’re an adult and not looking for a delightful Baby Gift, and make a list anyway. Organization is everything on this busiest of seasons, so make a list of people and include some gift ideas and the maximum you want to spend for each person.
Remember to start early and if you are shopping at an online gift shop make sure you check up on the shipping and delivery times. Waiting until the last minute means many of the premier Christmas Gifts like the beautiful Canadian Made Jewellery by Howling Dog Art, might be sold out, as stores may not be able to replenish stocks until the new year.
Finally, be sure to take advantage of those little extras like the direct shipping to friends and family living far away and the gift wrapping services that are offered by the high end online gift shops.

A multi tool with seven useful functions, a folding military shovel and auto safety tool for the practical side, and then a few different flasks to choose from when the boys decide to cut loose.
Teething can be a distressing time for new parents except when someone has had the presence of mind to present them with baby gifts that help to lessen the anxiety for Mom, Dad and Baby in the form of teething toys.
It’s best to look for products that are unique gifts in the sense they are made by companies who understand what’s needed to soothe this natural part of baby’s development that starts around six months.
RiNGLEY Teether Toys stand head and shoulders above the competition with an impressive line of natural teethers that offer 100% organic cotton terrycloth and a ring of untreated Canadian Maple.

Made in Canada – Perfect Gifts for Her
Pampered. That’s just the way she wants to rejuvenate from a long day whether it’s with the children, making decisions in the boardroom or both. With a brand name like Barefoot Venus, you can be sure you’ll be buying or receiving unique gifts that will leave you feeling relaxed, focused and utterly pampered from head to toe.

When washing the day’s worries and cares away to leave your skin soft, smooth and wonderfully clean sounds like a perfect plan, this Ruby Red Creamy Cleansing Wash adds the delight of a delicate scent to transform that working girl back to the Venus she’s meant to be.
Don’t forget to take the time to look over the other seductive gift ideas we offer from Barefoot Venus.

Don’t forget to look into our gift certificate and shipping options too.
When you’re looking through all the different gift ideas on the Internet, there’s not always time to consider important factors like where the items you’re browsing through are made. It stands to reason you can be too overwhelmed by all the choice and price range on even one item online to be patriotic, but there are some very good reasons to buy Canadian. Here are a few solid reasons to look for those products that are made right here in the home of the Maple Leaf.
Our Economic Well-being. There are some very grim statistics out there about the number of jobs that have been drained away from Canada in the manufacturing sector alone. One states that we lost 350,000 manufacturing jobs in the five years between 2003 and 2008. Buying Canadian means creating opportunities for Canadians, the more opportunities created the more money in circulation and the more jobs get invented. In short, buying Canadian helps to reverse those other cycles that create nasty statistics.
Safety Standards. Buying from the people who live in the country means getting goods and services that meet our rigorous health and safety standards. There might be a small difference in the price when you buy within our shores, but you can rest easy knowing the products that arrive at your home will be safe and reliable.
Labour Standards. Regardless of what you buy from our country, you can be sure the people who made it were treated decently and fairly and that they didn’t need to work in unsafe or even dangerous conditions. Sadly, our high standards are not always met by some of the other countries who sell their products inside our borders.
The Environment. Of course we live in a huge country but even with the immense size of Canada taken into account, buying here at home helps to lessen our carbon footprint by reducing the amount of transportation needed.
There are other reasons, but those are some of the high points for why you should shop Canadian. Remember that giving away a unique gift makes you feel good in the first place, so why not increase that feeling by helping out the people right here at home? Shopping on the Internet is one of the most convenient ways to see all the goods and services you’ll ever need.
