2017 PEI Gift List!

Top 15 PEI Made Items that are a must on your Christmas Shopping List!

Prince Edward Island is home to many great artisans and last year I completed the top-selling local items that retailers are selling for Christmas. This year, I wanted to create the PEI Gift List to showcase what artists products will probably be the hot selling items this year. Additionally, I should also note that Islanders believe in supporting local and show up with their wallets at every craft fair.

Last year, I created a video on top-selling locally made items on PEI.  This year, I wanted to take this a step further as the outcome from retailers was that the video I made last year really did amazing and helped drive local sales.  So after many artists submitted their items, I went out and solicited the opinions of local shopkeepers as to what they think will be the top selling items of the 2017 Christmas Season.

I left the criteria of voting up to the retailers to ensure no influence on my behalf.

So without further delay, here is the 2017 PEI Gift List!
