In case you might have missed it, that little window from Black Friday, to Cyber Monday, to Giving Tuesday shouts out loud - the gift giving season is upon us.

We’re excited to share these specially-made gift ideas from Newfoundland and Labrador companies that care about community, customers, and creating fun, valuable, useful gift-gifting experience for all hands.

There’s joy in giving, there’s joy in receiving, and there is also that wonderful, deep sense of purpose and belonging that comes when you know where it came from, and you know where it’s going, and you know that the good things stay right in the community.
