His and Hers

Our collection of gifts for Her and Him focuses on delicate treasures and daily joys. Thoughtful giving creates a lasting gift impression.  The daily things we use should bring a smile to our face and a warm memory to the forefront of our mind.  As you focus on Joyous Giving and providing items that speak to you, zero in on the times of the day that are more habit and less mindful and you'll find the right item for them! As we stripped away busy schedules and stressful lives the fun of giving rested in the little moments- morning routines, daily plans, useful tools and even thoughtful trinkets. Keep the festive giving and the holiday spirit and find the gifts of support and simplicity. 

Mindfully, 

Eikon Home Team

Joyous Giving

Over the years we've witnessed the joy of giving and how magical it can be to both the giver and the recipient.  Since it is important to find that connection and curiosity with the objects in our lives, we thought it best to share our favorite gifts of the season. The following is a compilation of gift ideas for the various relationships you have, including the special relationships with Him/Her.  May you find the inspiration you need to choose the gifts that are both merry and bright and a reflection of the joyful connections you cherish. 

Thoughtfully, 

Eikon Home Team

Start the Day

There is nothing we love more than taking intentional time to enjoy the mornings. With a morning cup, comes the long list of to-dos and responsibilities for the day.  There is something meditative about slowing down and making the mundane, extraordinary.  If breakfast is the most important meal of the day, then the time spent around it can be equally sacred to feeding your state of being. These are the few items we enjoy the most in the early hours of the day.  A small collection of goods to get you refreshed, enthusiastic, and inspired. 

Be renewed, 

Eikon Team

Simple and Special

As we dive into another holiday it is fun to find the items that reflect the joy of each relationship. Valentine's Day is more than colors and candy, it is an opportunity to find gratitude for those special individuals in your life and recognize their importance with thoughtful gestures. We believe that Valentine's is a fun celebration of love and wonderful chance to show appreciation. We curated some simple gifts and tokens both traditional and playful to help you treat all the sweethearts you know. Send a card, give a hug and do all you can in love. 

Your Valentine,

Bee Joy

At some point, most of us have heard of the health benefits honey provides, but honey is not pollinated equally. Cultivating a healthy, pesticide-free and delicious crop is something Christopher Carlberg, founder of  Hallelujah Honey has accomplished.  In 2009, the creator of Hallelujah Honey began rescuing bees and working with other beekeepers to safely coordinate live removals of bees as a part of a sustainable rescue effort. 

The global team members of Hallelujah Honey organized in Southern California.  They have found the most efficient methods to growing, pollinating and harvesting honey.  Made "by the bees, for the bees", this honey is an important environmental and health-conscious addition to your household.  Swing by Eikon or call for a jar of Halleluja Honey and taste the joy of community. 

Bee joy,

Inspiration Acquired

The new year brings many goals and ambitions of various kinds.  Our constant goal is to provide you with the objects that feed your sense of whimsical and comfort.  From stationary with kind words to send, books with messages of growth and gratitude, to the special keepsakes that place a smile on your face. We aim for an experience, both at Eikon Home and your home.  Your goals have been made, but let Eikon continue to inspire part of you that isn't discipline and tasks.  Or, at least, give you a pleasant check off your "to-do" list. 

Be fulfilled, 

Eikon Team

Gift Guides Part II

The Holiday shopping fun continues! Part II is focused on gifts for Him and for Her.  It's always thoughtful to play off of the more masculine and feminine gifting traditions.  The best part of shopping is the assortment and options to make each gift a personal reflection of the relationships you share and the personalities at play.  The best part of our role at Eikon is witnessing all the special connections people have with each other and how well certain objects reflect that joy and fulfillment.  Here is to wishing you the joy of giving and the fellowship of sharing. 

Happy shopping, 

Eikon Team

This collection of classics are the items we suggest that say thoughtful things, but please the masses.
