‘Tis the season for holiday pressure to buy the perfect present for the ones you love. Or perhaps someone has shown you an extraordinary amount of kindness lately and you’d like to repay him or her by showing your appreciation. Whatever your motivation, at the Umbrella Shop we know it can be stressful to find the perfect gift for everyone in your life. And if you’re reading this blog, then you already know an umbrella makes the perfect gift. It’s the gift of dryness and style. What could be better than that?!

First and foremost, think of what the receiver will use their umbrella for. Yes, we know it may seem obvious, but some people care about form over function, and while all of our umbrellas will keep you dry, they also have different components that lend better to different conditions.

Next, you’ll want to think about that person’s personality. Are they wild and carefree, lending to patterns and colours? Or is the user understated and quiet? We have umbrellas that suit any need and any fashion choice, so consider carefully before making a purchase.

Finally, you’ll want to consider the style of umbrella. Folding or stick? Sun protection or rain repellent? Do size and weight matter? Is the person a senior or have a physical trait that would benefit from a lighter umbrella? We can answer all these questions and more with the perfect umbrella.

Whatever umbrella you choose, our staff are just a phone call or an in-store visit away and are able to tell you all you need to know about every model on the floor. Come in and cross everyone off your shopping list!
