The Local Wishlist

Welcome to the fourth annual Local Wishlist, The Buy-Local Holiday Shopping Guide to Nova Scotia! The items below are either Made In Nova Scotia or sold at an independently owned Nova Scotia Business. 

This resource is designed to make it easier for you to find local gift inspiration for everyone on your holiday shopping list. Get inspired, there are so many items available locally, and your purchases help keep more money in our province this holiday season.

Want to see your local product or business on The Local Wishlist?  Our 2016 call for submissions is now open! Learn more about this project and apply to have your gift item featured HERE.
