Soy Candle Housewarming Gift Under $100
Mala — Sundays, $35 CAD
We're a little obsessed with gifting scents! That's because the way your home smells plays a huge role in setting the mood and can impact how you start or end the day. In 2020, we stumbled across the Instagram-viral candle brand Mala and were impressed by their story, design and cult-like community support. After placing our first order, we were not disappointed.
Mala's soy-based candle Sundays is an undeniably indulgent gift that any homeowner will love. From its minimal packaging to its relaxing soft and sweet scent, we promise you'll want to grab one for yourself, too.
Gold Jewelry Housewarming Gift Under $100
Mejuri — Beaded Ring, $95 CAD
Your mind might not immediately go to fine jewelry when thinking of the perfect housewarming gift—but hear us out. What better way to commemorate a huge life milestone than a piece of solid gold jewelry? Mejuri, infamous for their affordable fine gold pieces, offers the Beaded Ring. It's a step above a basic stacker ring, and thanks to its bubbled texture, is easy for your new homeowner friend (or family!) to slip on every single day.

Yoga Class Housewarming Gift Under $100
Various Yoga Studios, Multiple Pricing Options
Our single yoga class suggestion is on the list of the best housewarming gifts for good reason. Moving into a new apartment, house or condo can be incredibly stressful.

If they're new to the area and looking for a new studio, take advantage of welcome offers and newcomer discounts under $100.

Creating a deep sense of home is the key reason COIE was founded. Our belief is that adding just a few pieces of sunshine to your space, like our pampas grass, dried flowers and home decor, greatly boosts your sense of peace and overall happiness.
