Valentine gift special

With valentines day fast approaching, I thought I would give you a round up on the lovely accessories I have been sent information on.  I will also be posting some tips on how to style a valentines table…

I absolutely love this grey felt water bottle with a sweet embroidered red heart.  I have a similar one and it makes such a difference to cuddle this rather than boiling rubber!  It’s from a company called dotcomgiftshop and is priced at £12.95.  Their website is pretty good and has lots of sweet heart themed accessories.  They range from glass trinket boxes to this wooden chest; another favorite.  It would look great as a bathroom cabinet or used in the kitchen for all of your herbs and spices.  The fact that it is white means it won’t date that quickly.

I just had to share this with you as I think it’s so lovely.  It’s a hand carved Oak Swing with the words “Daisy Daisy give me your answer do, I’m half crazy all for the love of you”.  It’s not cheap at £270 but as it’s oak it should last and weather well.  It would also make a sweet present for a birthday or christening.  My sister is called Daisy…maybe I should suggest that my brother in-law buys it for her valentines present…! It’s from a company called Swings and Pretty Things.

If you are just looking for a little gift then these leather heart key rings from Ecotopia are quite cute.   I think I would have one of these regardless of whether it’s Valentine’s day!  The reason why I like them so much (aside from the colours) is that they are fair trade and under £3!

Forget chocolates or flowers, why not buy your loved one something a little different this Valentines.  This stylish tea light holder from Grand Illusions would look lovely as a set of three hanging in the garden.

The Spring/Summer months will be here before we know it and this would cast such a pretty light whilst enjoying some AL Fresco dining.  Not bad for £9.95…
