Where Ottawa - - CONTENTS -

1 HOME SWEET HOME

Based on a vin­tage map of the na­tion’s cap­i­tal, this li­nen-cot­ton pil­low de­pict­ing Ot­tawa’s down­town is well worth por­ing over. Ideal for lo­cat­ing land­marks and fa­mil­iar streets, the con­ver­sa­tion piece is also down-filled. $68. Maker House Co., 987 Welling­ton St. W., mak­er­house.com

2 SCENIC COAST­ERS

The most iconic back­drops of the city are vi­brantly set on these sturdy cork coast­ers. Bring home com­pact but colour­ful scenes of the Rideau Canal, Par­lia­ment Hill, and the Na­tional Gallery of Canada by artist Renée Bovet. $20. Made in Canada Gifts, 50 Rideau St., madein­canadagifts.ca

3 BEST OF THE BARS

The Cap­i­tal City Tav­erns t-shirt pays homage to Ot­tawa’s old­est wa­ter­ing holes with a play­ful de­sign that con­nects five dive bars to their city. Cre­ated by Wake­field’s Sainte-Cé­cile shop, it comes in six uni­sex sizes. $39. The Château Lafayette, 42 York St., the­laff.ca

4 CITY WEAR

A name­sake neck­lace can im­mor­tal­ize one’s true love — or civic pride — with sub­tle charm. The cut-out Ot­tawa pen­dant is set on a 16” chain and comes in gold or sil­ver. $20. Milk Shop, 45 Wil­liam St., milk­shop.ca

5 BEAVER TAILS FOR­EVER

Pos­si­bly the best-smelling air fresh­ener in the his­tory of Canada. Who doesn’t want a waft of doughy, cin­na­mon good­ness ev­ery time they open their car or locker door? $5. Irv­ing Rivers, 24 ByWard Mar­ket Sq., irv­in­grivers.com
