Since we couldn’t gather this year for our annual Christmas party, and because so many small businesses need our support, we decided to do something a little different in lieu of our in-person celebration: we created gift bags of awesome products from awesome local shops.
In celebration of #shoplocal, these are a few of our favourite—local—things from Halifax to Musquodoboit Harbour. We hope our MacKenzie Atlantic & MacKenzie Healthcare Tech teams who rose to the occasion this year enjoy them as much as we do over their well-deserved break! And if you’re looking for last-minute gift ideas, we recommend:
Fresh baked molasses brown bread (to die for, toasted & slathered with butter) - Dobbit Bakehouse
Blonde Wheat & Original Cinn craft beer (his brews are smooth, complex, subtle and seriously worth the drive) - The Harbour Brewing Co.
Gorgeous soap & shave bars - The Trainyard General Store
Beer can chicken cooker, porter beer mustard, Dirty Blonde Pepper Jelly - Nine Locks Brewing Co.
Local craft cider - Lake City Cider
Hilarious BlueQ socks - Selby’s Bunker
Gift card - The Side Hustle Snack Bar (inside North Brewing Co., serving up our latest favourite menu... popcorn chicken & General Tso Cauliflower, )
Custom MacKenzie Atlantic face masks - Janice’s Custom Tailoring
