The Tumblehome Gift Shop is located in the Canadian Canoe Museum in Peterborough and it features special pieces that honor the First Nations. The gifts are locally crafted and visitors don't need to purchase a museum ticket to enter the shop. Some of the items include museum mugs, jewelry, sweaters, paddles, coffee, and more.

Most notably, there are also intangible gifts including its 'Adopt an Artifact' program. Guests are able to adopt a boat to support the museum -- this comes with a certificate and also gives them the option to remain anonymous or not. The coffee selection spotlights 'Birch Bark Coffee,' which is owned and operated by the First Nations, giving a portion of the profits to help Indigenous families in Canada.
