About Us

Valerie Ventola

Welcome to Made In Canada Gifts


We are an Ottawa based boutique located in The Rideau Centre and Bayshore Shopping Centre in Canada's beautiful capital Ottawa. For the last 10 years we have been exclusively dedicated to gifts and products that are MADE IN CANADA. Established in 2010 as The Cuckoo's Nest, we feature unique Canadian art, fashion and accessories, contemporary jewellery, artisan foods and home decor created by Canadian artists from across Canada.


A Passion for Canada

Our passion for Canada, and all that it represents, runs deep. We have traveled extensively throughout the country from Vancouver Island to the Avalon Peninsula to remote Nunavut communities in the Arctic, and almost everywhere in between. We love our country and continue to be inspired by its natural beauty and wonderful friendly people.

Made in Canada Matters

We choose to offer only Canadian made products in our store because, by buying Canadian, our customers benefit from high quality manufacturing, superior customer support, and higher standards for health & safety. We also take pride in supporting local communities and the greater Canadian economy. Buying Canadian made products has positive, long-term effects on Canadians and our nation. As your patriotism guides your purchases, you’ll see these choices reflected in an extraordinary way on our country, our people and the environment. 

Our Canadian community involvement was recognized in 2012 when we were honoured to receive the Retail Council of Canada's prestigious Ambassador Award, given to the Canadian independent retailer providing consistently superior customer service and support of their community. See the press release
