The Shine Collection

Purchase tickets here

Every year, thousands of Nova Scotians eagerly attend YWCA Halifax’s Homes for the Holidays. An opportunity to showcase beautiful local homes and designers, this event is for many an important part of their holiday traditions.

This year we’re launching Stay Homes for the Holidays, a re-imagined experience to be enjoyed online.

What’s more, the spirit of this event is now yours to enjoy in your own home with a curated, custom box of products designed to bring joy to each corner of your home.

The Shine Collection is the perfect gift. Unique, local products are brought together to create a package with a purpose; proceeds of this box support the essential work of YWCA Halifax. We are an organization that supports diverse women, girls, and community members to live free from violence, achieve housing dignity, receive quality early learning, and reach their goals of economic independence.

In alignment with this mission, each item in the Shine Collection was thoughtfully sourced from strong, female entrepreneurs. We are so thankful for their contributions:

  • Bailly Fragrance
  • Chic on Paper
  • Circle & Wick Candle Company
  • Doodle Lovely
  • Duckish
  • EVR Leather 
  • Lure Caramel Co.
  • Olivicana Soap
  • Shivani’s Kitchen
  • Square Love

As you enjoy these gifts, we hope that you’re reminded of the work of the YWCA and the thousands of diverse women, girls, and community members this box supports. The programs and advocacy of YWCA Halifax help diverse women, girls and community members shine every day, all year as we work together for a more just world.

Thank you for your support. It means more than you can imagine.
