The Local Wishlist

*Please note: This is the 2017 edition of the Local Wishlist. The 2018 Local Wishlist will launch on November 12th.

Welcome to the sixth annual Local Wishlist! This guide features hundreds of gift ideas that are made in or sold at local small businesses in Nova Scotia. 

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