Now accepting applications for the 2nd annual Local LOVE List

Our second annual Local LOVE List, The Buy-Local Valentine Guide to Nova Scotia, is now accepting applications. This online resource is designed to make it easier for Nova Scotians to connect with Valentine’s Day gifts and date ideas made in Nova Scotia or available from locally owned Nova Scotia businesses.

It is free to apply for the 2016 Local LOVE List thanks to our sponsors. The final LOVE List will be selected from submissions received. If you are interested in participating in this project, please upload your submission prior to Tuesday, January 19th by midnight on Friday, January 22 using the online submission form linked below.

We are looking for the following types of gift submissions:

  • Locally made jewellery and gift items
  • locally made Valentines Day cards
  • Locally made chocolates, sweets, and food baskets
  • Flower arrangements available from locally owned shops
  • Valentine’s Day dinner packages and events from locally owned restaurants.
  • Romantic overnight packages from local hotels
  • non-romantic gifts and events for singles, friends, and others looking to treat themselves on V-Day

You can view the 2015 Local LOVE List for inspiration.

This year we have created an online application system. Below, you will find a link and a password to access the submission form. Once there, select the gift category that best fits your gift submission from the drop down menu, then input your product information and upload your photo.

Important: Be sure to carefully read through the instructions on the submission form prior to clicking submit. Incorrect image sizes, blurry or poor product images or incorrect formatting will not be selected. You must own the rights to the photo you upload (it was taken by you or you have express permission from the photographer to use the image for marketing purposes). 

Not all applications will be selected to appear on the final list, it will be curated from all submissions received.
