A Vancouver institution since 1879 – hence the landmark freestanding clock outside – Birks crafts exquisite heirloom jewelry and its signature line of timepieces. It's an upscale place, similar to Tiffany & Co in the US, and ideal for picking up that special something in a classy, blue embossed box for a deserving someone back home.

If you're keen to splash your vacation spending money around, consider a little something accented with a Canadian diamond, laser-engraved with a tiny maple leaf.
