Book A Vacation to Nowhere With Fairmont Hotels
Since we are all staying local these days, many hotels are launching staycation packages with an international twist to give you a taste of travel.

Send A Singstagram
Canadian singer and performer Adam James is the brains behind this unique gift idea—he will take a favourite song, create custom lyrics that reflect the person you are sending your Singstagram to, then record in a charming video message. We love the retro idea of sending a singing telegram—which has been cleverly rethought by James for 2021—to your true love.
