I'm sending a Secret Santa gift to a man in SW Canada who I don't know, have never met, will never meet and have about around £10 to spend. I know he likes the outdoors and is ex-army. I am a bit stuck on ideas of what to send. I could make a blanket, but not sure if it would be wanted and I don't want to spend a whole lot of time making something if it won't be wanted.Can anyone tell me what kinds of things Canadians like from England that are not easy to get in Canada? Oh, and he seems to have a pretty good sense of humour, too.Or does anyone have any suggestions of what I could send (not too heavy).
Thank you for all your ideas, everyone. I have wrapped and parcelled up the gift and will post it when I can get to a post office. Please feel free to continue using this thread as a Canadian meet-up thread. happy snow days!
Oops, spot the name change!
It's all right, we're too polite to out you I linked to a meet-up thread above - apologies for hijacking yours!
Let us know how he likes it...
Jacks, nah, stick on the route 1 until you get to the mountains. That's me. Know lots of folk in Okotoks, though. Even more little Britain than here!
