The malls are crowded this time of year, and every store seems to be selling the same thing. That is why we have rounded up a list of local holiday gift ideas that are unique, and you don’t have to wait in long lines to get!
Make Memories by Giving an Experiential Gift
Build your terrarium class at Audrey Too. Gather some friends or make it a date to learn how to make a terrarium at the new plant shop in Bishop’s Landing! Classes include guidance and the supplies you need to create your botanical world!
Plan dinner for two at one of the best restaurants in Halifax. Surprise someone with plans for a night out on the waterfront, complete with a romantic dinner. Here are a few recommendations:
- The Coast’s annual Best of Halifax was released for 2019 and Ristorante a Mano was voted best Italian and best pasta! They also won bronze in the best fine dining and salad categories.
- Speaking of best fine dining, that award went to The Bicycle Thief, as did the silver medal for best restaurant and atmosphere.
- Little Oak was awarded silver for the best wine list.
Perfect Local Host Gifts & Holiday Dinner Essentials
Bring a locally made Nova Scotia rum cake from the Rum Runners Rum Cake Factory to take some stress off the host. Not only can it be an option for dessert, but the cake lasts a long time so your host can serve it at another holiday gathering this season.
You could also go with the classic bottle of wine—the newly expanded Bishop’s Cellar makes it easy to find what you are looking for. If you aren’t sure what to bring, the knowledgeable team is always ready to assist. If you are the one hosting the party or dinner, they can also help you know how much to have on hand, and what pairs best with what you are serving.

Pick out their favourite sweet treats. Everyone loves locally made chocolates and candy from Sugah! Confectionary, and they just so happen to be the perfect stocking stuffers.
