Makers of our HOME

Here at My HOME Apparel we are lucky to bring some amazing Canadian made products into our shops. Along with our own brand, we also offer a lot of unique gifts ranging from bath & body products and pottery, to art prints and pantry items. With Valentine’s day just around the corner, we’ve got some awesome gift ideas to share with you.

It wouldn’t be Valentines day if we didn’t enjoy a little treat and what better product to indulge in than Peace by Chocolate from Antigonish, Nova Scotia (haven’t tried it yet? you don’t know what you’re missing!). The company is operated by the Hadhad family who had the opportunity to come to Canada after fleeing from their home in Syria where they lost their chocolate factory in a bombing. With the support of the town of Antigonish, the Hadhad’s were able to rebuild their factory and share their delicious treats with us. The sense of community in the maritimes is incredible! The fine chocolates they produce come in many beautiful shapes such as maple leafs, hearts, roses and more. Each chocolate is filled with an array of nuts, natural fruits and other fresh ingredients. They come with an assortment of flavours and have between 4 – 24 pieces inside. Go ahead and treat yourself, “one peace won’t hurt”.

I believe it is important to let your loved ones know how amazing they are, whether its a friend, family member or partner. Pixel Paper Hearts, a creative design studio from Milton, Ontario, has some great products to do just that. Whether you’re looking to send a sweet empowering message or something a bit more bold, they’ve got it all. Reading “You are pretty f//king awesome, keep that sh/t up” on your mug first thing in the morning while enjoying some fresh coffee (or tea, please!) would make you ready to tackle anything during your day.

They also create greeting cards, enamel pins, prints and key tags. All of which have words of encouragement or quirky phrases like “maybe swearing will help” or “crafty as f//k”.

A beautiful piece of pottery by Toni Losey would be a fantastic gift for anyone in your life. Toni’s pottery is made in Nova Scotia; we carry her stunning line of speckled mugs and bowls. The nature inspired colors and modest design are sure to suit anyone’s taste or décor. She also does some amazing sculptural work filled with lots of texture, shapes and diverse colors.

For those with wanderlust, we have the amazing Wanderers Map made by Halifax Paper Hearts, a card and print company from Nova Scotia.  This map comes with a tiny glass vial of gold push pins to track all the places you’ve travelled to. It comes with or without the frame, whichever you prefer. “Wherever you go, go with all your heart” – Confucius

A section of our shop that is sure to brighten your day and make you giggle is our card wall. One of the many card makers you will find is Classy Cards, a boutique stationary company from Halifax, Nova Scotia. Their well designed and funny greeting cards sport sayings such as “Let’s Drink Wine And Judge People” or “I F//king Love You” (yes, we carry cards with swear words!). They also offer other products such as magnets, wine labels and notebooks dawning similar amusing phrases.

And for those who aren’t really into… well, people, here is a favourite from their collection of notebooks:

Local Valentine FAVS

Local Valentine FAVS

February is the month of looooove. We get to shower our loved ones with roses, chocolates and all things red. Although we shouldn’t wait for a holiday to show how we feel about someone, it is fun to shower someone with extra affection on a special day.

On our own journey for the perfect Valentine’s gift, we found some local favs we had to share with all of you. When sharing some love to your special someone, why not spread that love to some local businesses as well. 🙂

Some of our local favs include:

Rhubarb Paper Co. – This funky local artisan has some of the best cards we have had the pleasure of reading. Sick of all those classically overdone, and might we add slightly boring cards? Then Rhubarb Paper Co is for you! She has a way with words that brings a smile to your face and expresses how you feel. As they say “life is too short to take it too seriously”.

Rhubarb Paper Co. is a company based out of Nova Scotia and has steadily grown since its starting point in 2015. Anita, the owner and operator, has a unique flare that makes her cards the perfect gift for all of the different people in your life. They are fun and fresh without all of the cheese!

Rousseau Chocolatier is a clear heart throb in my eyes. If chocolate was a man, it would be Ryan Gosling and he would from Rousseau Chocolatier. These sinfully delicious chocolates would make an excellent treat for your special someone. Let’s be honest – Or yourself. Because who can refuse chocolate? And these are the best of the best!

When searching for that perfect beverage to compliment your night, think of Jost wines located in picturesque Malagash, Nova Scotia. Their delectable wines are great for any occasion.

Though we may be biased with our next local fav, we are truly in LOVE with our new HOME Heart Tank. As the saying goes, home is where the heart is and we believe this could not be more true. How perfect is a cute tank with a love heart for Valentine’s day?!
