The Honeychurch Gift Guide for Consummate Host
This list includes pieces we’ve selected from both Honeychurch Lane and our sister store, Honeychurch Interiors, that are sure to impress even the most discerning recipients on your list.
1. Vintage Crystal Glassware
There’s nothing that makes your table literally sparkle quite like crystal glassware!
And we have a fantastic range of heirloom pieces in store — from gorgeous Cross and Olive burgundy wine glasses and Saint-Louis pineapple-cut glassware to Victorian Ruby Glass wine glasses and water goblets.
2. Mix & Match Vintage China
From Royal Doulton and Spode to Rosenthal and Limoges, vintage porcelain is back in a big way — but this time, without all the fuss. It's less about collecting a perfect set (although that can certainly be satisfying!) and more about mixing and matching a variety of pieces, and blending old with new.
We have a huge selection of vintage china available at both Honeychurch Interiors and Honeychurch Lane — come by and check it out!
3. Vintage China Statement Pieces
There’s nothing quite like a vintage china platter or showstopping tureen to set the mood for a festive meal!
We have a fabulous range of pieces in store, including an entire wall dedicated to vintage platters, and more arriving all the time.
4. Handmade French Tablecloths
These beautiful table linens — inspired by the lush gardens of the French countryside — are the epitomy of sophistication and style.
Each piece is carefully handprinted by skilled artisans using a time-honoured technique, resulting in a singular piece of craftsmanship. Available in a range of sizes and richly coloured patterns.
5. Hand-dipped Taper Candles
Taper candles have had a major renaissance in recent years, and for good reason: these timeless classics instantly add elegance and warmth to any dinner table. Available in red, green, white and pretty much every other colour!
6. Vintage Salt & Pepper Shakers
If you want to get your dinner guests talking, these adorable individual salt & pepper shakers are a fabulous conversation piece!
Complete with tray, these silver-plated mini-shakers are fabulous for picnics and small dinner parties. We have regular-sized silver-plated shakers as well, which will look equally striking on your table.
7. Farmhouse Mason Jar Candles
The Holiday Collection of Sew Rustic candles has arrived at Honeychurch Lane!
Handpoured in New Dundee, Ont., these all-natural, soy-based candles come in an amazing range of holiday-inspired scents — like Christmas Tree Farm, Mulled Cranberry, Sleigh Ride and Christmas Morning.
8. Perth Soap Co. luxury Hand Soaps & Lotions
From their body lotions to their cleansing bars to their hand washes, Perth Soap Co. products look, feel, smell and — most importantly — perform the way luxury products should.
Plus, they’re made in Canada, are paraben- and phthalate-free, and available in a range of gorgeous scents like Sparkling Champagne, Leather & Vanilla and Rosemary Mint.
9. Wellington Made Whiskey-Infused Maple Syrup
Handcrafted in small batches by Elora’s own Shelly Walsh, these whiskey-infused syrups from Wellington Made are pretty much magic in a bottle!
Aged for 4-6 months in oaken whiskey barrels, they make the perfect addition to holiday cocktails and Christmas morning pancakes.
