The Homekin Holiday Gift Guide



As the holiday season looms ever closer, it’s time to start thinking about what special gifts to give the wonderful humans in your life. The mere mention of holiday shopping is often met with a sigh or a grimace but worry not! Together with her team of shopping experts, Homekin founder, Natasha, has put together an exclusive selection of presents the special friends and loved ones in your life will truly love! 

Gifts for the home are always much-adored and within this selection, our elves have been sure to include something for everyone. From the most luxurious candles to perfume a home with tantalizing fragrances to luxuries their little ones will love, we’ve narrowed it down to a few favourites. Plus, to make things all the more convenient, we will even wrap it with a bow – literally! From now until December 20th enjoy complimentary gift wrapping.

To see our selection in person, join us at the Leslieville BIA Wanderlust where you can shop the collection in-store and enjoy complimentary wrapping, peppermint bark and bubbles!

But for now, here’s what we have in mind…

Fancy & Fragrant

We often talk about the importance of fragrance in a home, as our sense of smell is closely tied to our memories! So this year give the gift of a memorable holiday season with our selection of luxurious candles, room sprays and detergents from the best brands in the industry.

Some Light Reading

Coffee table books are one of those things that everyone seems to appreciate but will rarely purchases for themselves. For the travel maven friend or loved one in your life, our selection of Assouline books are a popular and incredibly chic go-to, while the AD and Tom Ford coffee table books will inspire those who are design obsessed. Whichever you choose, even if the spine is never creased with use, they are sure to elevate any surface they lay upon.

Luxuries for Little Ones

Although there is plenty to choose from when it comes to gifts for children, it’s rare to find a piece that that not only speaks to a child’s imagination but also exudes the aesthetic and luxury we appreciate. With our classic pedal cars and Prima Ballerina Dolls, children and parents alike can enjoy both style and play!

Playfully Stylish

For some, the holidays are an opportunity to spend quality time with friends and family while playing a game or two. From artfully-designed playing cards from L’Objet to eye-catching acrylic board games, these stylish games need not be put away before guests arrive! 

Hostess with The Mostest

At the risk of stating the obvious, the holidays are a busy time for entertaining and some embrace this task more than others! From Haute chopsticks to jewelry-inspired napkin rings, we’ve scoured our vendor catalogues for the chicest of chic gifts for the hostess with the mostest in your life. 

Miscellaneous Magic

Sometimes a gift basket does the trick but the problem is, more often than not, the basket containing all the gifts fails to add to the gifting experience. Instead, other than serving as a vessel, they are typically quite ugly and rather useless! So… we propose making the “basket” part of the gift by selecting something eye-catching and with a purpose. For example, fill one of our stunning wastebaskets with fragrant hand soaps and woven hand towels! Our acrylic and glass bowls can be filled with packages of gourmet sweet and savoury delights of the season. Alternatively, our malachite ashtray can accompany Cuban imports or miscellaneous trinkets or gift a meaningful photo enclosed in a beautiful picture frame.
