The Local Wishlist Nova Scotia

The Local Wishlist

Welcome to the third annual Local Wishlist, The Buy-Local Holiday Shopping Guide to Nova Scotia! This resource is designed to make it easier for you to find local gift inspiration for everyone on your holiday shopping list. Read more about the project and how it started HERE.

The items below are either Made In Nova Scotia or sold at an independently owned Nova Scotia Business. Get inspired, there are so many great items available locally, and your purchases help keep more money in our province this holiday season.  Our Open Call for gift submissions has ended, but make sure you join our mailing list so that you’ll know when we open our call for submissions next year HERE.

Stay in the loop! Get a weekly email with new and popular gifts from the 2014 Local Wishlist HERE.
