10 Best Lake Huron Gifts (2023)
I’d wager that if you live, visit, or cottage along the shores of Lake Huron, you probably love the Lake as much as I do. I’ve even used Lake Huron as my muse for my business Here On Lake Huron! To celebrate my love for all things Lake Huron, I’ve curated a list of the 10 best Lake Huron gifts.
As a former Retail Buyer (yep, I used to shop for a living) I love finding new and creative products. But more importantly, I love gifting these items to friends and family. I feel good about supporting a small business, and the recipient receives something handmade and/or unique from a local maker.
It’s a win/win!
Here’s a list of some of the gifts that I am currently eyeing for my Lake Huron-loving friends and family.
1) Hand Embroidered Heart Map from Sadie & June
Heart maps to celebrate your happy place! I often say St. Marys is my home, but Lake Huron has my heart. These hand-embroidered maps embody that exact sentiment. Whether your heart is at the Lake, in Sarnia, Tobermory, or somewhere in between, Sadie & June have you covered!
2) Sunset Candle from Huron Candle Works
A Lake Huron sunset is arguably *the* reason to visit the Lake. With notes of Coconut, lime, and verbena, this candle has the power to bring back all the warm and squishy memories of summers past. The graphic labels on the candles are reason enough to gift a Huron Candle Works candle.
Aren’t they gorgeous?
3) Distressed Lake Huron Cap from Here On Lake Huron
Perfect for the beach, board, and boat. This adjustable cap comes in an array of colors and makes the perfect gift for that hard-to-buy person. Looking for a Lake Huron t-shirt to accompany the hat? We have those too!
4) Lake Huron Great Lakes Map from 45 North Map Co.
This stunning bathymetric depth map of Lake Huron makes a wonderful gift. While 3D in appearance, the map is flat to the touch and is available in four sizes. Also available are Grand Bend, Manitoulin Island, and Sauble Beach.
5) Secret Road Trip from Guess Where Trips
If you are truly at a loss, why not give the gift of an experience? Guess Where Trips offers one-day surprise road trips that guide you to hidden gems and/or off-the-beaten paths. They *literally* take the guesswork out of gift-giving with their special road trip quiz. If you are looking for a Lake Huron-specific trip, try Hops, Hikes and History or Bridges to Beaches.
6) Lake Huron Print from Osgoode Company
If it’s Lake Huron art that you are after, may I suggest this beauty from Osgoode Company? Perfect, right? It would also pair nicely with this Georgian Bay print. They have Goderich and Kincardine too!
7) Adult Beverages from Shale Ridge Estate Winery & Cidery
Just a hop, skip and a jump from the shores of Lake Huron, you’ll find Shale Ridge Estate Winery & Cidery. They use farm-fresh ingredients in their beverages, including grapes and apples grown on their farm. Offering Ontario-wide shipping with their cider and wine. My personal fave? Their Lucia Sparkling Blanc. It’s delish!
8) Adult Beverages from Bad Apple Brewing Company
If craft beer is more to the liking of your Lake Huron-loving friend or family member, I’ve got you covered! Brewed on the premises, Bad Apple is known for its incredible beer and killer logo! Ontario-wide shipping is available. Try to mix and match some of their beer or hard cider. Yum!
9) Tabletop Driftwood Tree from Sustain My Craft Habit
Made from driftwood collected from the Lake Huron shoreline, this one-of-a-kind rustic tree is a great addition to any home or cottage. Use it as a Christmas tree or keep it up year-round. The tree comes in two colors (natural or white/natural) and three sizes.
10) Platter from Jaxx and Marbles
Bring a little Lake Huron lovin’ to the dinner table with this superb platter from Jaxx & Marbles. Pair it with the serving bowl to make an impressive Lake Huron gift. Or better yet, add the Lake Huron & Bruce Peninsula table runner to the mix and make it the ultimate gift!
BONUS: Letterboard Ledge with Letters from The Better Half
I couldn’t create a Lake Huron gift guide without mentioning my friends at The Better Half. While this product isn’t directly related to the Lake, it can easily be transformed into a Lake Huron-esque gift.
How fun would this Letterboard Ledge be on the cottage wall saying things like, I Love Lake Huron or Lake Life Rules. The possibilities are endless!
The next time you are looking for a Lake Huron gift, I hope you reach out to my small biz friends. Your support means the world to us!
