Lake-friendly holiday gifts
Please Note: We are happy to mail your purchases within Canada but during the holiday season, we can’t guarantee an arrival date. If possible, we highly recommend you pick up your purchases from our downtown Winnipeg office located at 107-62 Hargrave Street. If you have any questions or need a hand, give us a call at 204-956-0436. We’re happy to help!
Looking for a holiday gift that keeps on giving? Our fundraising efforts include product sales!
Proceeds from the sale of these unique items support the protection of Lake Winnipeg. When you give them to your family members, friends, kids’ teachers or anyone else on your list, you’re also giving the gift of healthy water – it’s a win-win!
Purchase your gifts online, over the phone or in person at our Winnipeg office. We accept cash, Visa, Mastercard and cheques. Purchased items can be picked up at the LWF office or shipped* to you within Canada for an additional cost. (If you’re ordering online, remember to add “shipping cost” to your cart when placing your order and choose the shipping cost associated with the size and description of your item. Please also be aware that we ship via Canada Post and cannot guarantee delivery by a certain date.)
This holiday season, choose to make a difference for Lake Winnipeg.
For the person who loves their lake and wants everyone to know it: Our exclusive line of wooden ornaments and art pieces feature local artist Kal Barteski’s signature K.BARTESKI brush script. Perfect for hanging on the tree and displaying on the mantle! $15 - $60
For the nature-lover, gardener or local art history buff: Our vintage limited-edition wood engraving prints were generously donated to us by the descendants of accomplished Winnipeg artist Henry Eric Bergman (1893-1958). Each print features a plant found within Lake Winnipeg’s watershed and comes mounted on an 8 x 10, acid-free, archival mat – all that’s missing is the frame! $80
For the fashionista: Local jeweller Hilary Druxman has designed two special handcrafted sterling silver necklaces for LWF as part of her popular philanthropic collection. These look great on their own or as companion pieces. $40
For the music fan: Collaboratively produced in 2016, our Love, Lake Winnipeg: a tribute to the songs of Sol Sigurdson EP features four tracks from Riverton singer-songwriter Sol Sigurdson’s 1970 cult classic, The Lake Winnipeg Fisherman, reimagined by Manitoba musicians Jess Reimer, DJ Co-op, Scott Nolan and John K. Samson, and Mise en Scene. $10
For the map lover/art lover: New for 2019, local artists Gail Bacosa-Puhawan of Beautiful Mess Studios and Jill Patrick are donating a portion of proceeds from selected pieces – including bathymetric maps of Lake Winnipeg, which showcase relative water depths using gradients of blue cardstock, and laser-cut maps of various lakeside communities. All pieces come framed and ready to wrap. $40 - $150
For the lake-lover who has everything (and for everyone else, too!): Honour someone special by purchasing them a one-year LWF membership. You’ll receive a charitable tax receipt; they’ll receive a beautiful holiday card featuring K.BARTESKI script art – and become part of our growing community of passionate lake-lovers, speaking out for the health of our shared waters. All LWF members receive our newsletter twice a year and have the right to vote at our annual general meetings. Simply give us a call or email us and we’ll take care of all the details! $50
