From all-inclusive Canada fishing trips at Sointula Lodge to plane tickets to gift cards, there are plenty of options for choosing personalized gifts everyone on your list will love—no matter how long you wait to shop! Still have some holiday shopping to do? Keep reading for a few last-minute gift ideas.
All-Inclusive Canada Fishing Trips
Here at Sointula Lodge, we might be a bit biased. But we can’t think of a better last-minute gift than all-inclusive Canada fishing trips. You might not be able to travel to our BC fishing lodge this time of year. However, now is a great time to purchase an all-inclusive package to gift to your family, a friend, or a loved one for the summer of 2023.
Our all-inclusive fishing and Wilderness Tour packages include all of your lodging, food, activities, and transportation while on Malcolm Island. This makes it an easy gift; you’ll know exactly what you owe upfront. Besides your transportation to and from the Lodge, tips for tour guides, and a British Columbia fishing license, your gift recipient won’t have to worry about any surprise fees or expenses.
On a fishing or wilderness tour, your loved one will have the chance to disconnect from the stress of everyday life and relax in the beauty of our natural setting. You’ll be gifting more than just an incredible vacation; you’ll also be gifting memories to last a lifetime!
Another great way to gift an experience this year is to give your loved one plane tickets. If you know that they have a trip planned, gifting their plane tickets is a great way to cross something off their list and give them more money to spend on activities and experiences during their trip.
If you don’t know their travel dates, you can always opt for a gift card for an airline instead, or for a hotel, travel company, etc. Got a thrill-seeker on your list? Why not purchase a gift card or voucher for a thrilling adventure, like skydiving, scuba diving lessons, or an off-road excursion.
Gift Cards to Outdoor Stores
If you’re not looking to gift something as extravagant as all-inclusive Canada fishing trips or plane tickets, don’t worry—we’ve got you covered!
Cash or gift cards are often the go-to when you need a last-minute gift idea. But it’s still possible to make this a customized gift that your gift recipient will love. A gift card to a store that will let them pick out a brand new piece of gear or some new clothing to make their outdoor time more enjoyable is certain to be a hit with the outdoor lover in your life.
Some great retailer options in the U.S. and Canada include:
- Canadian Outdoor Equipment
- Atmosphere Canada
- Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World
- L.L. Bean
- Academy Sports + Outdoors
- Dick’s Sporting Goods
Thanks to online shopping, your recipient doesn’t even need to live close to the store that you choose. If you’re purchasing a gift for someone outside of your home country, just make sure that the store ships to their home! Other retailers, like Amazon and Walmart, also carry some outdoor gear and are a simple last-minute gift choice.

From all-inclusive Canada fishing trips to plane tickets to gift cards, any of the gifts on this list are certain to be a hit with anyone on your list, but especially for the outdoor enthusiasts in your life.
While a stay at Sointula Lodge is a great chance to cast a line and take an evening hike, it’s also a relaxing getaway for those who hate roughing it. Your friend or loved one can spend their evenings relaxing in our beautiful cabins and enjoying delicious, gourmet meals.
