Our lil'Badger Gift Shop celebrates the 12 Days of Christmas!

Just this past week, we launched a new online Gift Shop and we couldn't be more excited about it! Looking for a way to share our joy, our friend Preston of suggested that we do a "Twelve Days Of Christmas" promotion. We were really diggin' his idea so we started right away!

On the first day of Christmas my true love proved to me (that)
"GIRLS PORTAGE BETTER" with a decal for all to see.

For the first day of our "Twelve Days Of Christmas" promotion, we celebrated all the Portage Queens out there by offering our GIRLS PORTAGE BETTER decal for a special one-day-only price of $4.50 CAD. (Note: The GIRLS PORTAGE BETTER decals are still on sale but will be marked back up to the $5.00 CAD sale price by the end of today, regular price is $6.00.)

On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me
A lil'snake paddle that's as cute as cute can be! ♪ ♫ ♩ ♬

For the second day of our "Twelve Days Of Christmas" promotion, we introduced a hand painted cartoon "WaterSnake" Cub paddle for a special holiday price of only $65.00 CAD (regular price $85.00) Note that is particular paddle is a one-of-a-kind, not another one will be made like it!

On the third day of Christmas my true love surprised me,
With Mrs. Callan's chopping board beneath my tree.

For the third day of our "Twelve Days Of Christmas" promotion, we are featuring a unique solid cherry cutting board that depicts an engraved copy of Fiona's "Trip List" sketch for a special holiday price of only $120.00 CAD (a 250 mL tin of our Badger Wood Oil is also included!), regular price $125.00 CAD. Note: We gifted a smaller, similar version of this cutting board to The Happy Camper's lovely wife, Alana, last year and she was diggin' it so much that we decided to make a second available for those who may wish to have the matching board to Mrs. Callan's in their own cabin or kitchen. ;o)

On the fourth day of Christmas, I found under my tree
The perfect paddle to be built - JUST FOR ME!! ♪ ♫ ♩ ♬

Our "Fourth Day of Christmas Featured Item" is our Badger Gift Certificate/Receipt. It's a gift so nice, they will celebrate twice!

With our personalized, printable, official Badger® gift note/gift receipt, you can purchase a paddle for your favourite canoeist and surprise them for the holidays. They will then be excited to make the final decision on their paddle preferences as we offer them personal guidance in paddle style and length to be delivered in time for next season. So they get to celebrate once again when they receive their paddle in the Spring!

Special Holiday Limited Time Offer: FREE HAND PAINTED NAME/PERSONALIZATION on all Christmas Badger Gift Certificate purchases! That is a $30.00 CAD value for FREE!!!

And together, across the water, we shall flee! ♪ ♫ ♩ ♬
