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.
Lisa and the team at ISC Beauty have gone all-in to make 99 (only 99) ISC Beauty Holiday Capsules. The skin-care products are made out of sustainably foraged Newfoundland botanicals, and put together the ultimate gift!
The Limited Edition Holiday Lifestyle Capsules are a $200+ value, but as of 12:01 am on Black Friday the deal is on for $89.99.
Extra special add-on - A sample of the botanicals foraged on the Avalon this past summer!
*Available locally in a pretty gift bag or shipped as separate items each carefully wrapped for gifting.
New Perlican artist Eileen Balsom Matthews creates scenes of this beautiful place in her artwork. The paintings are of a variety of iconic and traditional Newfoundland outport themes and options.

For this special time of year, Eileen is offering $10 off prints of her original work.
The LSPU Hall / Resource Centre for the Arts has the most awesome experiences any day of the year!
And this time of year there’s special holiday shows. Give tickets, or a gift certificate. Or a Hall Hat.

Not a Black Friday event, but here’s always something special on the go at The Roost.
The Roost at York Harbour is a local craft shop and a friendly respite where you can experience the history and lifestyle of unique people in an untouched place.
And on December 9th and 10th, it’s coming up Mummer!
Yes the Mummers - and the Shoppers are all allowed in! Costumes, mummers, jannies - call it what you will, the event will feature handmade mummer items, discounts, prizes, refreshments and more.
If you’re not lucky enough to be there in person, you can order online.
Like Janis says, The Roost at York Harbour is anchored in community, craft, and culture. It will all show up in the Mummer weekend!
Leave it to Kim Winsor and the crew at Johnny Ruth to make cheeky sense of the giant shopping events.
On Black Friday JR is offering 30% off black clothing. Very cool. JR has a great count on the black clothing. And that offer extends to Sunday November 24.
Then on Cyber Monday, JR is offering 20% off JR casuals. Sensibly enough, that’s only online!
Mudder has it all set up for Christmas.
First there’s the Christmas Gift Boxes. There are three types. Small has 4 assorted 2.25oz bars, large has that, a shower steamer, and pine soap holder. The third one is the steamer - 5 assorted shower steamers & 1 christmas themed steamer.
