Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is Sunday! If you’re in need of a special something to show Mom all of your gratitude and love, I can assure you that we have just the thing.

The store is literally bursting with great new things, many of which we know your Mom would love! To give you an idea of what’s in store here’s a handy little gift guide of some of our top picks for Mom!

You can never go wrong with Tokyo Milk. We’re especially enamoured with their hand creams. Made from shea butter and crushed and distilled essences, these all natural hand creams will leave Mom’s hands silky smooth and smelling divine!

Available in five different scents, $19.95 each

Is your Mom queen of the Kitchen? Check out these 100% cotton tea towels! We love the fresh colours and detailed sea creature images that adorn these super durable and absorbent towels.

$6.50 each


Do you have a green thumb Mom? How about gifting her with a new addition to her plant family? We have some beautiful planters in the shop that are great for indoors and out. Just pop in a plant and voila!

Green ceramic planters $12.95-$18.95, terra cotta planters $12.75-$21.95, sap bucket planters $22.00

Pheylonian 100% beeswax candles are a wonder product that make a beautiful gift. They have a lovely natural smell, and warm long-burning honey coloured flame. These clean burning candles actually purify the air as they burn, and help with dust and allergies. We like the idea of pairing some of the beeswax tea lights with one of our glass lanterns, or our adorable tulip tea light holders!

Candles $1.35-$41.95, candle holders $4.95-42.75

We’re loving this Fiesta inspired collection of ceramic wares that we just got in the shop. We have ceramic colanders, citrus juicers, pitchers, and mixing bowls in bright, summery colours. Any of these fun pieces would make a great gift.

From $21.95-$27.50

There are so many other wonderful things in the shop at the moment, I can’t share it all with you here. Visit us this week and let us help you find that perfect gift for Mom!



Whoa Baby!

Hi friends!

We hope you’re enjoying the first signs of spring- the buds on the trees, the few extra hours of daylight, and the warmer temperatures (most days anyhow!). New life is happening all around at this time of year- including new babies! A lot of our regular customers have been in lately showing off their new little ones and, our own Sappho is expecting her third child in just a few weeks!! Needless to say, it’s an exciting time here at henhouse!

Are any of you expecting a new family member soon?

Well, if you happen to be in need of a gift for your own little one or for someone you know who is expecting, we have some really sweet things in the shop!

We love, love, LOVE all of the baby clothes from Parade. Cuteness aside, these outfits are made by a Canadian company from 100% organic cotton, and are pesticide and chemical-free. They are safe for your baby and our environment! Sizes range from 0-3 months up to 12-18 months.

Babies and food…things get messy!  These Mally bibs will do the trick! Made in Canada from 100% baby safe leather, these bibs wash easily with the wipe of a cloth and will last for years! They have a unique adjustable magnet clasp, so you can widen it as your baby grows. These make a really great gift!

For  most new parents, sleep is a sought after luxury. Luna Lullaby swaddling  blankets can help! Swaddling is the ancient technique of snugly wrapping your baby in a way that simulates the feeling of being in the womb.  It’s soothing for babies, and it can help them sleep longer and more comfortably.

Everyone needs a life-long pal, and these sock monkeys are just that. Each monkey is lovingly hand made in Nova Scotia. They come in all shapes and sizes,  and  have their own unique personalities! We think they make a great toy for the young as well as the young at heart!

Thanks for reading! Visit us this weekend- it’s supposed to be great sunny weather (read: perfect for shopping at local small businesses!!)
