Creating Memories: Our 2023 Gift Guide

Creating Memories: Our 2023 Gift Guide

  • November 22, 2023

Every holiday season we ask ourselves the same question: what should I get for everyone on my nice list? Like we have for the past few years, we’ve put together a gift guide to help you enjoy the holidays to the fullest, without worrying about presents. This year’s guide focuses on experiences because moments make the best gifts.  


Pottery lessons at Murai Ceramique in Wakefield

We recommend the introductory workshop which takes place over two Sunday mornings. The first morning is used to make their pieces on the wheel and with their hands; the second, a few weeks later, to glaze their pieces. Not only will the lucky recipient learn a new skill and possibly find a new hobby, but they’ll also leave with four new pretty pottery items!  


Family fun at Parc Omega in Montebello

Just an hour away from Nordik Spa-Nature, Parc Omega is the perfect place to send the family for a day of discovery in nature. Open all year long, the Canadian safari lets you admire numerous animals. Gift certificates are available and do not require a reservation.  


Winter gear rental at Nomades du parc in Chelsea

Plan a day out in the snow for you to share with a loved one. Rent cross-country skis, fatbikes or snowshoes and discover all that Gatineau Park has to offer in the winter. Nomades du parc’s team will happily introduce you to your gear and recommend the perfect trail for you and yours.  


Well-deserved rest at Nordik Spa-Nature in Chelsea

Once the madness of the holiday season is behind us, those to whom you have given a gift certificate to the spa will be grateful for the opportunity to recharge. With holiday packages carefully crafted for everyone on your list, you’re sure to find the winning combination to make their holidays.  

To do your holiday shopping in person, head to Bayshore Shopping Centre, CF Rideau Centre, St.Laurent Shopping Centre or Les Promenades Gatineau to visit our holiday kiosks. 


Bouldering and yoga classes at Klimat in Wakefield

Whether you tag along or give them a gift card, a trip to Klimat is sure to please the fitness enthusiasts in your life. Climbing fans (or beginners) will love the 3200 feet of bouldering surface. Not much for heights? Klimat also offers yoga classes. More than a gym, this bouldering and training centre is a community.  


Skate in the woods at the Little Penguin Trail in Cantley

The Little Penguin Trail is an outdoor skating trail with over 5.5 km of icy paths to enjoy in nature. When the trees are covered with freshly fallen snow, it’s a magical place. Enjoy it together or give them daily access, a package or a seasonal pass to enjoy whenever they want. Lac-des-Loups also offers a great skating in the woods trail.
