What gift to buy for someone who just got their citizenship?

I was told to get a set of coins or stamps from Canada Post, but i think he already has that.

Any ideas are welcomed. Thanks. v

A passport? Seriously though, I've never heard of people receiving gifts for obtaining citizenship.

Cake, card and a Canadian flag (full size) made me happy when I got my citizenship. But you can buy me a TV if you really want...

A poutine and a beer for sure. A sonny's poutine!

Nahh... you should get him/her a Poutinies or a Smokes poutine. Well worth the drive.

How about a lazy work ethic and sense of entitlement? It's been all the rage in North America since the '60s.

Yes, a kool gift... and add in SIN and Health Card apply help will do too. That is still having trouble speaking English fluently.


maybe trip to CN Tower or Maple Leafs Hockey game :)

Maybe they are just very close friends or family.

How messed up is that? He should be getting you something for the privilege of obtaining Canadian citizenship. If he can't afford it he could help you or build something for you or something like that. He could also volunteer to help out a non profit or charity. What's with the sense of self entitlement anyhow? :confused: :razz: :) :lol:
