Cheeky Umbrellas Are a Must-Have in Vancouver: Giveaway

Comments 144 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Back in 2009, before “Influencer Marketing” was even a thing, Jen from Cheeky Umbrellas reached out to me – a little local blog – to see if I would write about their product. Eleven years later and I am STILL using the same Cheeky Umbrella, which says a lot given the amount of rainfall we received, and my affinity for walks in said rainfall.

Cheeky Umbrellas

The product line sure has expanded since 2009, they now have a custom collection too with digital prints, even patio umbrellas and shade solutions. In the shop you’ll find their tried and true models, with fashionable designs (they sent me a “Canadian” recently to expand my collection) and a reflective trim option.


  1. Strong, rust-resistant frames:  All the umbrellas in our retail collection use fiberglass for the ribs, making them superior in strength and wind-resistance, as well as completely rustproof.
  2. Beautiful designs:  Each umbrella has a unique style, design and/or fabric that makes it stand out in a crowd.
  3. Generous warranty:  Each product is backed with a one-year no-hassle warranty and a lifetime service guarantee, offering you repair services wherever possible, and when not repairable, offering a discount off a new umbrella. 
  4. Supporting mental health:  5% of each purchase is donated to local mental health initiatives, in hopes of helping others find a brighter perspective during the “rainy days” of their lives.

Shipping in Canada for orders under $75 is $9.95.  Shipping for orders over $75 is free.

I used my Cheeky Umbrella in the Lexus commercial I filmed

Our 2009 Cheeky has been so great but I love the improvements in design, including these caps on the tips of the frame aka “no eye poking”. Connect with the company on Facebook and Instagram for more info.
