DALINA Coffee Beans

Gift the coffee-lover in your life a taste of DALINA and let them brew coffee exactly how they want it.  The beautiful and festive copper packaging looks beautiful on any kitchen counter.

Zimt Chocolate Bar

Emma Smith of Zimt Chocolate is a regular at DALINA – you may have seen her sampling her vegan chocolate bars with us on the weekends.   A bar – or two, or three – is a great stocking-stuffer, especially for someone with dietary preferences who doesn’t want to compromise on taste.  Flavours we regularly have in-stock at DALINA include Maple Smoked Salt & Rosemary (shown in header photo), Coconut Crisp, and Mint Nib’d. 

Carry On Cocktail Kit

Have a wanderlust friend?  Bring their next airplane ride to new heights with the Carry On Cocktail Kit.  Each compact tin includes everything needed to mix up a delicious cocktail while flying sky high. All that needs to be added is the liquor – and that’s easy to get on any flight.  We recommend the celebratory Champagne Cocktail Kit (shown in header photo) which includes enough small-batch elderflower cocktail syrup to mix drinks for two. 

Vancouver Candle Co Dalina

Vancouver Candle Co.

Share your national pride with Vancouver Candle Co.’s newest collection which showcases the regions of Canada.  From the ‘Westcoast’ (fir, spruce, oak moss) to the ‘Atlantic’ (bergamot, lavender, violet), these handmade, soy wax candles will make a house feel like a home by adding instant warmth to any space.

Amola Sea Salt

Who’s the hostess with the mostess?  Whether it’s for the one who hosts weekend brunch, the BBQ-master, or the one who can whip up a three-course dinner at a moment’s notice, help elevate your loved ones home-cooking to gourmet levels with Amola Salt.  These globally-inspired salts, ranging from Garlic & Rosemary (shown in header photo) to Molten Hot Salt, will add layers of flavour to just about any dish.  If you’re lucky, maybe they’ll invite you back for another meal!

Cahoots Lavender Simple Syrup

A DALINA favourite!  For the aspiring home mixologist, Vancouver-based Cahoots offers all-natural cocktail mixes and infused simple syrups for happy hour – or any hour!  Whether you’re gifting Chai or Lavender (shown in header photo), let’s all say ‘cheers’ to the lucky recipient. 

Lisa Lou’s Chocolate Bars

With a love of exploring textures and flavours in chocolate, Lisa Gardin of Lisa Lou’s Chocolate is a Vancouver-based chocolatier who has had her delicious chocolates with us at DALINA since Day 1. Shown in the photo is the ‘Joan’ bar, which is chocolate layered with a mango and passionfruit jelly and crunchy cashew butter sprinkled with sea salt and toffee.  

SaltSpring Kitchen Co

Dalina Salt Spring Kitchen

Just in time for the holidays, SaltSpring Kitchen Co. has launched a packaged trio of gourmet jams with festive, seasonal flavours; one of which is their Winter Wonderjam – packed with strawberry, cranberry, orange & bourbon.  Got a friend who loves their vino?  These small-batch jams are great for pairing with cheese, charcuterie and wine.     

Silk Road Tea

Gift the joy of a warm cup of tea from Victoria’s Silk Road Tea.  Tea bags are packaged in a beautiful and totally gift-able rice paper zip-top satchel.  The teas will last well into the new year, keeping the lucky gift recipient cozy all winter long.

Sip x Swell Water Bottle

Keep coffee hot and iced tea cold, all day long!  These playfully-patterned Sip by S’well bottles are designed to keep drinks hot for 12 hours or cold for 24.  From cute animal silhouettes to fruity prints, there are so many fun and stylish patterns to choose from at DALINA.

DALINA Gift Card

Take the guesswork out of Christmas shopping and share your love of DALINA with your friends and family.  We have gift-cards available, in any denomination, year-round.
