Provisions Food Company Cheddar & Thyme Shortbreads (100g, $7.50)
This shortbread has a special herbal touch with fresh thyme leaves. Paired with cheddar, everyone’s favourite cheese, is a friendly accompaniment with whites, reds and everything in between.
I've never had savoury shortbread cookies before. These might be nice on a cheese and charcuterie plate. Provisions Food Company is based in St. Catherines, Ontario. I'm interested in trying their fruit pastes!

All of our products are ultra concentrated, with as little filler as possible, so just a little goes a very long way.This contains which hazel and various essential oils. It smells better than any bug spray I've ever tried! Au Naturale is based in Toronto Ontario.
I had to e-mail Lemon Lane to find out more about this candle. There is no brand markings on it at all. Turns out, it's a house-made item. It's a Lemon Lane exclusive and we may see more in upcoming boxes. They will also be available for sale on the website soon. The label says this scent has intense notes of caramelized sugar and freshly tapped maple trees, reminiscent of bright snowy days at the sugar shack.. and you know what? It totally does. It smells good enough to eat.
More about the Lemon Lane candles:
All of our candle are made with Eco Soy wax which will burn cleanly without toxins, carcinogens or pollutants. They don’t produce any soot, are longer lasting (4oz candles should last 20-25 hours, 30-50% longer than paraffin) are biodegradable and water soluble which makes spills easier to clean. The wax is made from soybeans which supports North American Farmers and stimulates the economy by utilizing a natural, renewable resource that contains no pesticides and is never tested on animals. Plus, they smell incredible!Lemon Lily Canadian Maple Loose Leaf Tea (50g, $7.99)
The Maple Kind? Canadian, eh? Caffeine-Free Rooibos and Canadian Maple come together with a pinch of Brown Sugar. Try one of our most popular teas as a new Canadian tradition.
This tea smells delicious, and unlike the candle, it can be consumed! It's raining buckets in Vancouver, so this seems like the perfect comforting blend to sip while stuck indoors. Lemon Lily teas are handcrafted and packaged in Toronto.
F as in Frank Papergoods Greetings from Canada Letterpress Card ($6.79)
This card features a graphic silhouette of all of Canada, letterpressed in black ink with 'Greetings From Canada' left unpressed, making the sentiment pop out of the silhouette in bright white. All of our cards are hand-fed and printed on an antique manual Chandler and Price letterpress machine, and are designed with a minimal and masculine aesthetic.
This is a great card! I have a couple great friends outside of Canada so this will be perfect to send out during the holidays. They also have provincial cards! Click here to see more. Frank Papergoods is based in Vancouver, BC! I'd never heard of them before, but now I will definitely be buying more cards.
Lemon Lane Gifts included five items with a retail value just over $43 CDN. This box costs $39.99 CDN per month, plus shipping. This box is more about curation than value, and the curation is fantastic. The products are all very Canadian, especially the card, tea, and candle. I really enjoyed unboxing this one and I have a cup of Canadian Maple tea brewing as I type this review!
