While there’s no doubt online shopping is the modern, convenient way to get those names on your list crossed off, you need to keep in mind there are people who want to scam you in cyberspace as well. That said, we want you to have a safe and enjoyable shopping experience with us at our gift shop, so we’ve decided a add a few tips for safe online shopping that you’ll want to keep close by.

For example, when you’re looking for unique gifts, we have just what you need for that hard to buy for person on your list, but we recommend you don’t use public WiFi to complete the transaction or any Wi-Fi network that is not secure.  As tempting as it might be to use your iPad or mobile device in a mall, coffee shop or crowded store that has free Wi-Fi, you could be putting your personal information at risk.

It’s best if you wait until you’re on a protected network before you start typing in personal information and shelling out payments.

Always look for the little padlock or “https” in the URL bar on the checkout page. Remember, our checkout is safe and secure and is an integral part of our overall dedication to your 100% satisfaction, during the holidays and any other time of the year.

Support your local businesses. Keep in mind many of our gift ideas are made in Canada.
