It's the time of year for snowy strolls, twinkling lights, and, of course, gingerbread. Christmas just wouldn't be the same without this sweet treat, and it's fair to say that most of us are a little obsessed with it. From lattes to ice cream, it seems like everything is getting a gingerbread makeover. This spot in Ottawa takes the gingerbread hype to a whole new level, and you need to see it this season. Ottawa's Gingerbread Man shop will whisk you away to a magical Christmas world.

The Gingerbread Man is a charming dessert spot tucked away in Manotick.

The store sells gingerbread all year round, as well as a variety of other mouth-watering goodies.

The shop itself resembles a gingerbread house from the outside, with its icing sugar trim and white railing.

The interior is decked out in all things festive, and you'll feel like you've stepped into the North Pole as soon as you enter.

You can get your hands on gorgeous gingerbread houses of all shapes and sizes. The venue also creates custom houses and showpieces.

You'll find melt-in-your-mouth shortbread cookies, spicey ginger molasses loaf, all-butter chocolate chip cookies, ice cream, and butter tarts that boast to be the very best.

The shop is a magical place to visit at any time of the year, but especially at Christmas. 

Take a trip to this cookie wonderland, and breath in the heavenly scent of fresh gingerbread. You'll get your sugar fill for the season just by looking at all the delicious displays.

You can even gather some inspiration to use on your own gingerbread creation at home.

If you're looking for more festive places to explore, you can take a trip to this Christmas village that looks like the North Pole itself.

Enjoy this gingerbread heaven, gumdrop buttons and all, and don't leave without treating yourself to at least a few goodies!
