Default Gift for someone in the UK

Hi I'd like to send a Canadian gift to my colleague and friend in the UK who really helped me out when my health wasn't so good in the summer.
Has anyone got any suggestions as to what I could send and the best way to do this? I thought of maple syrup or masks with a maple leaf flag, bottle of wine (not sendable).
I found one site but would be grateful for other suggestions.

Thank you

You could save on the shipping by ordering from UK companies that stock Canadian souvenirs
https://www.zazzle.co.uk/canada+souvenirs+gifts
Canadian gifts on Amazon UK (you can even order maple syrup www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07JZ86THV/ref=dp_prsubs_1 ) http://www.amazon.co.uk/Canadian-Gif...Canadian+Gifts
http://www.amazon.co.uk/s?k=canada+g...79&ref=sugsr_1
https://www.cafepress.co.uk/+canadian+gifts

Or for something different from Canada, perhaps a dreamcatcher or carving? > https://thegreatcanadiangiftcompany..../first-nations

I hope you are fully recovered now...

Seconding souoxies suggestion of looking on Etsy. It’s nice to support smaller businesses. I believe you can filter my delivery options

Hi I used Lottie Shaw's in the end twice in fact.
Recipients were very appreciative. Thank you for the recommendations!
