Valerie Ventola - The Cuckoo's NestValerie Ventola in her nest! - The Cuckoo's Nest Gifts

Welcome! I'm Valerie, Head Chick at The Cuckoo's Nest.

The Cuckoo's Nest was established in 2010 in the heart of Westboro Village in Ottawa, Canada's beautiful capital city. We feature unique Canadian home accent decor, fashion accessories, contemporary jewellery, decorative art, tasty artisan foods, and personal care products such as soaps and body lotions. We also carry the best selection of humorous greeting cards in Ottawa!

Our mission is to provide high-quality, out of the mainstream, gifts and home décor that have significant Canadian content. We are passionate about gift giving and fully embrace that "it is better to give than to receive". Giving is joyful and fun and good for the soul! Our customers express their feelings through the gifts they choose. For tips and advice on how to hatch a perfect gift for those special people in your life, see our Art of Giving page.

In 2012, The Cuckoo's Nest received the great honour of being awarded the Retail Council of Canada's prestigious Ambassador Award, given to the Canadian independent retailer providing consistently superior customer service and support of their community. This national award recognizes community involvement as well as retail excellence, and we were very proud to receive it.

Whether you visit us online, contact us by email or phone, or visit our Ottawa store, our goal is to always treat you to a most pleasant and rewarding shopping experience. We thoroughly enjoy hearing from our customers and receiving your Customer Testimonials. Have a wonderful shopping day!
