Recently, I created this thing called Nova Box- which is a gift box filled with Nova Scotia treasures. Based in Halifax, we sell our boxes online and ship anywhere in Canada, the US, and abroad.
Nova Box was born out of a love for all things Nova Scotian, and a passion for building my own business. I’ve always been a firm believer in the power of entrepreneurship, and the opportunity it can bring here in Atlantic Canada.
When asked what Nova Box is, my answer is usually pretty simple: “it’s like Nova Scotia in a box!”
Perhaps it is a BIT more than that…so here are three things you should know about Nova Box.
Hug from home. Nova Box is more than a carefully curated gift box of treasures. It's a warm embrace from home; it's a friendly reminder of why you love this place; it's a lovely little piece of the community that brings us all together. Nova Box is for loved ones near or far who are celebrating a special occasion, are missing home, or simply would like a little love from Nova Scotia.
Seasonal Boxes. Released quarterly, each box is carefully curated with items that reflect the spirit of each season. This season's box was inspired by the earth and awakening beauty of Spring in Nova Scotia. We collected items from the land and sea that demonstrate that Spring is here (finally). We also offer a selection of cards by our favourite card company, Halifax Paper Hearts, to suit any occasion. If you're sending a box for a birthday, an anniversary, Mother’s Day, a thank you, or just because- we've got you covered.
Supporting Local. Each box is filled with items that highlight the incredibly talented makers, artisans, and business owners in Nova Scotia. Every item is carefully selected from partners who are not only talented, but also care about their community and the environment. We are proud to represent local companies by promoting their products and brand and helping them grow their business and export products outside of the region.
Nova Box was launched in November 2016 with a holiday collection. We’ve since tweaked our offering and simplified our operations, but the mission remains the same: to promote Nova Scotian products/companies and help people give great gifts to their loved ones!
