Local Gift Guide
You didn’t think we’d create all of these gift guides and not make one that celebrates Atlantic Canada, did you? Of course, we wouldn’t! We have never been more proud of our local businesses than we are after these past couple of years and we’re excited to share our Atlantic Canada gift guide with you. We’ve put together a local wishlist that celebrates all things Atlantic Canada to help you shop locally where you can this year.
CHECK OUT OUR OTHER GIFT GUIDES
Originally, this was a Nova Scotia gift guide but for the last couple of years, we’ve included some amazing brands from across Atlantic Canada because we just couldn’t keep them to ourselves. You’ll find local gift ideas from experiences to local food products to home decor and craft beverages — plus so much more.
There’s something for everyone in these guides. And, if you still can’t find that perfect something, we hope this will serve as inspiration as you shop local this year. Be sure to check out our other guides (listed below) as well.
Gift Ideas that Support Local
If sustainability is on your list this year (like it is for me), check out our friends at Bubbles & Balms. You heard me rave about them if you attended my latest carry-on packing workshop because I’m OBSESSED with their all-natural bath and body products.
We’re also thrilled to welcome The Lemonade General Store to the guide this year. Their curated gift boxes are amazing and you can customize each box with wine pairings!
We’ve said before (but we’ll say again) that one of our all-time favourite gifts was a curated box of wine from Bishops Cellar that was filled with picks from Wine Spectators top 100 of the year. Avondale Sky is a welcome returning feature to the gift guide offering their annual white Christmas 6-pack of wines as well, but you don’t have to stop there. If you’ve got beer lovers on your list, you’ll love the Legendary Growler Club from Boxing Rock. I got this for Brent last year, and he loved it!
If you loved our Experience gift guide, you’re going to appreciate seeing some wicked new “memory-making” gifts on the list like the new accommodation package from Grand Pre and Lawrencetown Lodge (with their wood-fired hot tubs) alongside some returning favs like Nova Scotia Wine Tours and Pictou Island Yurts.
You’ll find local products for the foodies in your life like Maritime Madness, Stillfired Distillery and Stable to Table Farms along with unique gifts from talented makers like Seek and Bloom (I’ve already placed my order).
There are so many amazing gift ideas here from home decor to local food boxes and everything in between.
