Gifts for self care

The gift of self care can be one of the greatest gifts of all; for many of us it’s easy to forget to slow down and be mindful. We love gifts that create an opportunity for pampering and self care.

Some of our favourite bath salts are by Kodo Collection, they create a beautiful and enchanting bath that is awesome for sensitive skin. Another sensitive skin friendly pick are Epic Blend’s bar soaps. These aren’t your grandmother’s bar soaps; they enrich the skin with natural ingredients, leaving skin feeling soft and nourished.

Essential oils are a multi purpose gift; they are a beautiful way to add natural fragrance and a festive mood to the air. Our brand of choice is Vitruvi; we love their 100% natural and pure ingredients.

Whether you call it Hygge, gezellig, or koselig, the art of coziness is something that is very necessary this season. Who doesn’t love receiving something both functional and beautiful for their home?

A long lasting scented candle like the cedar wicked Milk Jar Candles add an instant air of comfort and hygee; the wicks even crackle like a campfire! Another great way to add an instant freshness to a space are the all natural room sprays by Haven Apothecary. We actually use these sprays in our stores on a daily basis, we love the whole range of scents.

We love the gorgeous and very functional ceramics by Wilerine Pottery, they are as durable as they are beautiful (They are microwave and dishwasher safe) and come many different variations.

Also pictured is a timeless linen napkin by Indaba; something classic and cozy for the home is always a welcome gift.


Gifts for the Little Ones

The little ones in our life can be among the hardest to choose gifts for. We recommend gifts that are fun, neutral, and always in style.

A soft and versatile long sleeve shirt like the super comfortable unisex sweatshirts from Sloane West, will go well in any little ones wardrobe. They are a cozy way to stay warm and stylish in the cooler months.

The always popular wood toys from Janod (We love the flashing cameras and phones) are a great gift that is both functional and fun for littles. There is a wide selection of amazing wooden toys; one for every interest and age.

For the smallest of little ones, we love the soft linen swaddles by Lula Lollipop and Pehr; they are a classic gift that never goes out of style.
