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. Read more about the project and how it started HERE.

Stay in the loop! Get a weekly email with new and popular gifts from the 2015 Local Wishlist HERE.
