Which Gift Boxes Make Good Gifts To Canada?

Weather conditions in Canada vary widely but are largely characterized by long cold winters and short temperate summers. This means that food products are not generally exposed to extreme heat so travel well and arrive in good condition. All our Gift Boxes are therefore suitable for sending to Canada.

Shipping To Canada

Sending gifts to Canada with British Gift Box is generally straightforward. We take great care to arrange the appropriate shipping and complete all export/customs paperwork before your order is dispatched. Notwithstanding occasional extreme weather, your present to Canada can be delivered in as quickly as 2-5 working days with express courier. Royal Mail postal services will take 5-10 days.

Canada is strict about what goods it lets into the country. Food items are allowed in as long as they are non-perishable, ambient and sealed in manufacturers’ packaging. So chocolate, sweets, biscuits, crisps, snacks and all the other goodies that go into our Gift Boxes are fine to send, although customs will occasionally inspect a parcel to check its contents.

The only real pitfall with sending gifts to Canada is the potential for customs charges. Canada does not have very generous import tax exemptions. It has Goods and Services Tax (GST) and duty on imports above CAN$20 (CAN$60 for gifts). This is a very low threshold which means that your recipient may get an unexpected surprise of a duty/tax demand with their gift delivery! Different provinces have some autonomy over the regulations and rates. This further complicates things resulting in some gift shipments being levied charges whilst others are not. If you are looking to send a gift to Canada, this is something you should be aware of.
