With Valentine’s Day imminent, many of us are looking for ways to show our loved ones we’re thinking of them—even at a distance.

If you’re looking for the perfect gift for a boyfriend, girlfriend, parent, child or otherwise, we’ve got you covered with some of our favourite Indigenous-created gifts, rounded up for us by the Indigenous Tourism Association of Canada.

It’s 2021 and we’re still in this pandemic together! Let’s keep supporting local and showing up for our communities around Canada.

Indigenous World Winery

West Kelowna, British Columbia

Indigenous World Winery is a world-class winery that sells award-winning wine on the traditional, unceded territory of the Okanagan Syilx People. 

The concept for Indigenous World Winery emerged as a way for owner Robert Louie, and his wife Bernice—descendants of the Syilx People—to combine the unique terroir of the Okanagan valley with the Indigenous people’s stewardship of these lands.

Tasting an Indigenous World wine is tasting fruit from the land that has supported the Syilx People for over 10,000 years. Experience a new flavour and enjoy a glass or two with your loved one on Valentine’s Day.
