The Greatest Long Weekend Gifts, Goods, and Gear!

The Greatest Long Weekend Gifts, Goods, and Gear

More than just a 3-day weekend, the May Long Weekend signals the beginning of the summer season. For the Coriander community, it's our chance to embrace the sparkling waters of Georgian Bay, the cool of the tree-lined trails, and the peaks and valleys of our country roads. From fresh farmer’s market finds to locally-crafted ciders and wine, summer makes everything taste a little sweeter.

Opening up the cottage, launching the boat, a backyard bonfire, or exploring a new town- Coriander has the gifts, goods, and gear to help you get ready for the May Long Weekend adventures ahead!

Blaze a New Trail

Have you been around the block a few too many times with your furry sidekick? Or maybe you want a change of scene from the screen for you and your family. The long weekend offers a chance to explore new sights and discover the natural wonders in our own backyards. 

Choose a new loop, fill your belt bag with hiking must-haves, grab your water bottle or your compass flask (below) and get ready to blaze a new trail-  or see your familiar world with fresh eyes.

Guest Goals

The next best thing to owning your own long-weekend retreat is having a friend or family member who invites you to theirs! And bringing along a thoughtful gift helps to ensure the screen door remains open for future visits.  

A stack of brightly coloured beach towels will be enjoyed by your hosts all summer long. In fresh, summery stripes, these towels are fast-drying and look fab wherever they go- on the boat, beach, backyard, or pool. 

Citronella candles are a Canadian long-weekend must-have. Be your hostess’ hero and bring these beauties to help keep the bugs off. The simple black and white illustrations complement any decor and will keep your memory as a great guest burning bright.

The Great Indoors

If you’re venturing no further than your couch or condo balcony, why not bring the great outdoors to you?  Set the stage for a staycation that feels like an escape- from the comfort of your own home. 

The Flikr Firepot is perfect for Netflix by firelight or s’mores on the deck. Safe and easy to use both indoors and out, the simple design of this little wonder fits in anywhere from an urban oasis to a rural retreat.


Surround yourself with the scents of the forest with this small but mighty incense burner. Relax, unwind and let the nature bathing begin!

 Dress the Part

Get ready for all of the places you'll go (or stay) this long weekend - and for the summer ahead! From shorts to help you jump easily from the boat to the dock, dresses to take you from the farmer's market to the pub patio and all of the other sweet summer moments in between, now is the time to stock up on the clothes that will help you breeze through the season in comfort and style.


Happy Long Weekend Friends!
