 If you Lived in Nunavut.....

And someone was going to gift you with something from someplace other than Nunavut, what would be ideal and appreciated.

Please don't suggest live animals...until we run out of options.

that is insane - I'd never even heard of the place, still can't say or spell it and all of a sudden its a popular place to be? LOL


Well the pic's are GORGEOUS and definitely somewhere I would LOVE to see - but probably not live...I love my watermelon and soda pop and all the luxuries of being able to get anything I want/need at the store nearby!


the 24 hours of daylight thing seems really cool too! laugh

Produce would be a hit, if you can get it there fast enough. You also can't really get any types of natural foods (like health foods, I mean), although there is a surprising amount of ethnic food supplies (at least in Arviat, there were). Current magazines and newspapers were awesome. And, for some strange reason, everyone was always nuts about anything Tim Horton's.

I lived in Nunavut for a month and a half for work, two years ago and it was amazing! I think that the care package with goodies from home would be great as well. Everything is so expensive there and having someone send me a care package full of things that I couldn't get, or that I'd have to pay an arm and a leg for, would have been great!

If it is a woman, some pampering products like body butters, etc would be great. I had a really hard time with my skin there because it is so dry!

I'm probably not going to help your cause here at all, MH. While I think all of these ideas are great, as someone who lives here, we do have access to a lot of the stuff mentioned.

I can't just pop out to the store and buy body butter, no, but I can order it online with free shipping. I think it's why it's very hard to buy something for someone who lives up here and I don't have a lot of suggestions. I've become very accustomed to getting everything I want through online ordering. And I've also become the person who buys something if I need/want it regardless of cost. So, yes, I live in the North, but I don't often feel deprived. Except maybe when I'd kill someone for a hamburger from McDonalds.

Now, with all that being said, when you live up here, the mail becomes a daily event. I LOVE checking the mail to see what might be there. If it's not only bills, bonus. If it's something there that I didn't order myself, extra bonus! You really become very easy to please when you live up here. Any time someone puts any thought into anything for you, you feel very grateful.

my friend's sister is a doctor and did some of her residency in nunavut, and everything was expensive, but the price of alcohol up there were apparently just insane!

Have to be careful with booze depending on the community. I know in Western Arctic there are a few communities that are "dry" and have a no booze law.
