Don’t show up empty-handed to your next holiday party! We've compiled a list of a few of our favourite places to find host gifts in London's Old East Village. Get inspired and then check out our business directory to find more fantastic local businesses.
Unique Ceramics from Clayworx
Stop by Clayworx’s beautiful retail store to find a gift as unique as your host is! With handmade ceramic pieces from over thirty local artists, there’s plenty of variety if you aren’t settled on a gift yet. How about a cozy new hot chocolate mug? A vase for Christmas greens? A plate to pile high with holiday goodies? There’s such a range of colours and styles that you’re guaranteed to find something to match anyone’s tastes.
Fresh Flowers from Regency Florists
Let the friendly faces at Regency Florists help you bring the perfect floral touch to your host’s home. This season’s showstopper is “Home Sweet Home,” a beautiful floral centrepiece complete with a cabin that lights up. It makes the perfect addition at a table with friends gathered around for a festive dinner. Prefer plants? You can’t go wrong with a classic poinsettia!
Handmade Soap from Illbury + Goose
Check out Illbury + Goose for dozens of great gift ideas! Shop their Apothecary lineup to discover handmade products locally produced in small batches. When it comes to soap, they have a unique array of scents made with Purdy Natural, like Matcha Green Tea or Clean Bee which is made with local honey and bee pollen. You can even play it cheeky with their seasonal Lump of Coal charcoal soap!
Festive Spirits from Union Ten Distilling
Union Ten’s recently reopened retail store is decked out for the holidays! If you want to make an impression, their holiday gift boxes are expertly curated collections of seasonal spirits. Try their Christmas Cream Hot Chocolate box or Rudolf’s Tipsy Spritzer gift box. You can’t go wrong with a bottle of Northern Cream liqueur or their Barrel Aged Old Fashioned bottled cocktail either!
Home Decor from Habitus
Step into Habitus’ showroom and discover a stunning collection of home decor and Scandinavian furniture. For host gifts, we suggest an elegant tumbler set, a vibrant floor pillow, or one of their beautiful books to sit on a coffee table. Our favourite right now is the Urbania collection of ceramic houses. Place tea lights inside to create a warm and inviting village, perfect for a wintery windowsill!
