North End Gift Ideas for the Local Lover

The season of giving is here, and it is time to purchase gifts for your proud-Haligonian friends and family! We have compiled a list of local goodies that your loved ones will be ecstatic to receive, and everything can be found within the North End of Halifax!

Help them rep their favourite place

Your friends are going to love representing Halifax in this warm and cozy crewneck sweater! This sweater can be purchased for just $30 in-store at Fresh Prints at 2411 Agricola Street.

Looking for a different image on the sweater? Fresh Prints also does professional screen printing and custom apparel; you can grab a quote from them here!

Maybe you're looking for something a little more North End Halifax specific..

A great option is this warm, knit toque from Agricola Street Books. Any true Haligonian knows how awesome Agricola Street is, and would absolutely love to rock this Agricola hat!

This hat comes in two colours: burgundy and charcoal grey, and can be purchased for $24 in-store at 2684 Agricola Street, or online here.

Give them something they'll be proud to hang on their wall

Anyone who has spent time in the North End of Halifax knows how iconic the colourful sister-houses are, and this gorgeous artwork represents the sister-houses perfectly!

This artwork, printed on 18x24 poster can be purchased for $45 at Agricola Street Books at 2684 Agricola Street, or online here.

A gift for the young local lover

Nothing screams Halifax habour like a container ship! Designed for ages 3+ this toy is fashioned after the CMA CGM Jacques Saadé, which embodies a commitment to the planet. Load and unload containers on this ship for the ultimate play activity.

This wooden toy can be found at Nurtured Products for Parents at 2543 Agricola Street. Available for purchase for $75 in-store or online here.

Gift them local décor

The cutest mouse in town is back for the holiday season! This sweet, North End mouse ornament is hand-made with wool felt and polyester, and stands approximately 5" tall - perfect for hanging on the tree!

The North End mouse (and a few other mice cuties!) can be found at Biscuit General Store. Available for purchase for $15.99 in-store at 2050 Gottingen Street, or online here.

Check out local businesses for merch

One thing about true local-lovers is they love to support local businesses! A fool-proof way to support local businesses is to purchase their merchandise; you put money back into the local economy and become a walking advertisement for a small business (it's a win-win!)

Check out this stylish, crew-neck sweater from Grove Hair Studio! This sweater can be purchased in-studio at 2445 Agricola Street for $47.

Make gifting easy with a local gift card

Still not sure what to gift your local-loving friends and family? Make gifting simple with a gift card! But, this time around stay away from the big box stores and grab a gift card from a local, North End Halifax business.

Check out the digital gift cards from The Grainery Food Co-op! These gift cards are sent digitally via email, are available in any denomination, and make great gifts for foodies, students on tight budgets, those who love to support local and don’t need something materialist. Food is a practical & useful gift! Purchase the gift cards here.
