You know the person that enjoys the comfort of their own home much more than being out and about and in a crowd of people (maybe you are that person, I am!)? Today's Local Experts Gift Guide is for them, for the person in your life that loves to spend their free time relaxing at home, taking care of their space, their family and themselves. Everything in The Local Experts Gift Guide are things we own, use and personally love, we hope you love them too!

Halifax local gifts for the homebody

HaliFolks: The Faces and Stories of Halifax

The concept is pretty simple, a spur of the moment portrait of a street passerby along with an excerpt of an interview taken at the same time. What you get is a collection of faces and stories of the people that make up Halifax. Stories of happiness, sadness, and everything in between. HaliFolks: The Faces and Stories of Halifax by Jack Scrine is an intimate look into another Haligonian's life, someone you likely wouldn't notice passing you on the street in our busy city.

As a longtime fan of the Humans of New York blog upon which Jack Scrine's work is inspired, I love that the concept has been brought to Halifax! This gift will be loved by anyone that lives in, or just misses living in Halifax. Find a copy in various local bookstores such as Bookmark and Carrefour Atlantic Emporium, at Chapters, or order online at

Lismore Sheep Farm Goat's Milk Soap

This locally made goats milk soap exfoliates and cleans the skin all at the same time! The wool acts as a wash cloth as the soap suds come through. It's gentle on the skin, long lasting and absolutely adorable. Find Lismore Sheep Farm at the Halifax Seaport Farmers Market every Saturday until Christmas or order online at

Sock It To Ya Hair Accessories

The first thing I do when I get home is throw my hair up in a comfy scrunchie or cute clip, and all my favourites are from Sock It To Ya in Downtown Halifax. Another one of my favourite local shops to find gifts (for others and myself!), Sock It To Ya carries a wide selection of unique, fun socks along with other cozy items like slippers and robes! Find them at 5431 Doyle Street or browse their online shop at
