Something with the red maple leaf on it or even some real Canadian maple syrup, though I’m not sure if you can really travel with that.

Polar Bears, an Igloo, Large Poutine, maybe a dog sled team and a toque! 

Haha, but seriously,

Postcards, Fridge Magnets, aboriginal art (dreamcatcher, moccasins, etc)

@noritake22:

 

I once used Smarties (the real ones!) as “cover” to get into a bar into Florida. Bouncer found out we were Canadian and said for the rest of the time we were down there said if we could get him Smarties we were in!

@Ryansgirl: Maybe get some small favor bottles with capes that screw on? Not sure how leak proof those are though.

 

@Lindsay05: Yes! Poutine! I’ve personally always wanted to try that but even when I was in Canada, I never got the chance to.

@Ryansgirl: Yeah Syrup is a great idea, but on my way back from Quebec (my boss makes maple syrup out there and I brought back 6 cans) my luggage almost ended up overweight!

What are “Real” smarties? They’re not the ones in the little plastic wrap/tube?

Maple syrup is like liquid gold. So expensive. Pins always go over great. You can go to your local city hall, explain what you are doing and sometimes they will give you a deal or give them to you for free.

@Ryansgirl: No, we don’t have them where I am ๐Ÿ™

We have something called smarties. They are kind of like sweet tarts, but not really.

I would love for you to send me some, but I think I might be getting some from relatives when they come to our wedding ๐Ÿ™‚

Everyone in my family knows I love smarties. I grew up in Canada, and love all the cool candy. The US really can’t compare, in my opinion.
