place where i can find a good selection of high end travel mugs in montreal?

wasn't exactly sure where to place this post, but hopefully it can still be answered here! i've been looking around canadian websites online as well as shops near where i live in montreal for a good quality leak proof travel mug. i've only seen trudeau ones, and those ones arent the type i am looking for. does anyone know of any other places i can look? i've been to canadian tire, zellers, cuisine gourmet on st catherines st, and various small stores that sell high end kitchen supplies, but no luck.

    1. Golda's Kitchen is a canadian on line kitchen shop, they have the Oxo mugs ; I've ordered from this site before and the service was excellent, I was able to speak to someone when I had a problem with my order . The Bay store downtown has a great kitchen section.
      Have you looked at the travel mugs sold in coffee shops, I've had starbucks mugs that performed well.

        I realy enjoye my Starbuck's one. They are pretty and did not leak in more than a year.

        1. re: superbossmom

          thanks for that online suggestion, but they only have the plastic oxo ones :/

          nope havent yet. i've never heard of that store before, is it a housewares store?

          1. re: sharkbait88

            Yes, it's a chain owned by HBC. There are outlets at Fairview Pointe Claire, Marché Centrale, and elsewhere. It's called Home Outfitters in the rest of Canada.


            Not sure I've seen much in the way of travel mugs there, though - but if you check out Mountain Equipment Coop (where I have seen tons of mugs) you could check out Déco Découverte at the same time.

        2. What about Mountain Equipment Coop at Marché Central?

              Just got a pair of Contigo's at Costco for $20US. (2 in a package for $19.99)
              Leakproof, 16 oz insulated stainless steel, 4 hour hot and 12 hour cold rated.

              1. re: monku

                at the costco at marche centrale?

                1. re: sharkbait88

                  Sorry, got mine at a Costco in the Los Angeles area. They just started showing up in the last couple weeks.
                  Thought it might be a start since you mentioned Contigo.

                  1. re: monku

                    i'm looking for one that i can buy in montreal, since to buy it on ebay from the states costs an arm and a leg for shipping.

                    1. re: sharkbait88

                      You mentioned Contigo, I figured there must be places that sell that brand where you're located.
                      I think it's the best travel mug I've ever had.

                      Just saw that Costco Canada is a retailer for Contigo also Canadian Tire

                      1. re: monku

                        i've desperately been looking for contigo mugs in canada! canadian tire unfortunately doesn't stock them, they have some of the worst selection of travel mugs too! and i checked the rest of the canadian retailers but none of them are in my area, except for canadian tire.
                        if someone could point me in the right direction, one that would have either contigo, highwave or oxo stainless steel travel mug, i would be SO grateful :)

                        1. re: sharkbait88

                          Has anyone found nice ceramic travel mugs in town? I have my good old stainless but would love a nice ceramic.

                          1. re: captainzap

                            i know they sell a white ceramic in the starbucks in Chapters on st catherine, its not so much a travel mug per say though.

                  2. re: sharkbait88

                    They do have them (Contigo mugs) at the Costco stores here. I can't remember if I got mine at the marche Central or in Laval. I am not very happy with them; the cover is not very ergonomic at all. The spout is too high and you have to tilt it a lot to drink, making it incovenient for hot beverages.

              2. at some point this summer i switched to a starbucks thermos. I love it. It's leak proof, slim, and keeps everything hot/cold longer than the regular mugs. Also, it's pink which makes DH less tempted to borrow and lose it :)

                The airport location of starbucks seems to have a larger selection of mugs than most locations i have visited.
