Sometimes it just takes the right inspiration to get us out into the frosty winter weather. Making it fun helps too! Give them a season pass to the Old Port Skating Rink, the liveliest skating rink in town!

Give them the gift of fresh air fun, including evening events with live DJs all winter long… not to mention those sparkling views of the city skyline.


Not everyone loves winter weather, so we’ve got some indoor gift ideas too! Give them the gift of wonder and discovery with a yearly membership to the Montréal Science Centre. A membership card offers unlimited access to our permanent exhibitions, discounts on our temporary exhibitions, 50% off at the IMAX®TELUS theatre (and at the snack bar!) and much, much more… including 50% discounts on skating rink passes!

A year-long family pass is only $145. This gift lets them skate all winter long and visit the MSC all year around for less than $200. Talk about brilliant!

Why not pamper them this year? Give them the gift of wellness! Invite someone you love to indulge a little with a gift certificate from the luxurious floating spa, Bota Bota spa-sur-l’eau. A full suite of body care and water circuits to let them unwind along the riverside.

Offering everything from massages to special events, Bota-Bota is a great place to kickstart a full day of activities at the Old Port and put all that holiday stress aside. It works wonders on all that regular stress too!

Playing in the snow on a beautiful winter’s day is the quintessential holiday activity. Look no further, because Voiles en voiles’s winter adventure park opens December 7. It makes a perfect gift for all those energetic little ones on your list!

Imagine them tubing along a 200-foot run (and from 20 feet up!), riding snow scooters and quadricycles… and don’t forget archery and snow obstacle courses! Give the gift of exhilaration! Healthy fresh air fun to bring everyone together and make lasting memories.

Looking for a sure-fire win this holiday season? Here’s the perfect gift idea for Secret Santa, last-minute gift giving, or to dazzle them with originality with a ride on the Montréal Observation Wheel! Buy a pair and make it an unforgettable gift for two. A beautiful moment to share together, up above the city, on the largest observation wheel in Canada. A ride they’ll remember (and a gift they’ll adore!)

With all these great gift ideas, you can be sure the holidays will be happy and bright this year! Merry gift-giving everyone!
