As you probably know, Valentines Day is on 14th February so I thought I would help you find the perfect gifts to lavish on your better half and ensure you stay out of the dog house this year.
(Psssst!! keep an eye on the end for a couple of the more cheeky, gag gifts)
I would like to start with a beautiful gift from Carol over at Carol’s horseshoes and other gifts.
Yes, these are real decorated horseshoes that have come from horse’s feet and then decorated in beautiful appliques and ribbons for ANY occasion so don’t forget to add the shop to your favourites for future anniversaries and birthdays. Starting at just £6, they’re a bargain!
Let’s move on to…….. CHOCOLATES! Julie over at The Crafty Crofter makes beautiful chocolates (Believe me I’ve had them and they’re gorgeous!) For Valentines Day Julie has made some little hampers. There’s a luxury one for £15 or this smaller hamper for just £7.50, both come with a personalised key ring.
Tracey at Transform-a-mug makes all sorts of sublimated items for you to buy so I’m going to give you a quick message about one of them but I suggest you look through the shop to see all the other wonderful items on offer. Tracey has made some gorgeous pillow cases with a special message on them.
Let’s talk jewellery! I don’t think I need to tell you, but I will, that jewellery is a GREAT gift to give on Valentines day and at Conscious Crafties the jewellery is all handmade to perfection. Dawn makes jewellery at DawnyT Designs, I’m going to show you one of her items but, again, go look at her shop, there are lots of things to choose from. This one is a stunning heart shaped sterling silver pendant hung from a sterling silver chain. The pendant measures approximately 12x13mm and the chain approximately 18 inches/46cm.
Did you know that the Conscious Crafties owner also crafts? Karen makes beautiful things over at her Conscious Crafties Shop but the one I think you’ll like best (especially if you have Celtic blood in your veins) is this beautiful silver hearts welsh love spoon charm necklace to symbolise relationships and energy. Hand carved from recycled real silver.
And Valentines Day isn’t complete without a gorgeous card! Here’s one from Tracey’s Shop, with a lovely Roses are Red message on the front and a blank space inside to write your own message or poem.
Naughty but Nice
Remember, at the beginning I told you there would be a couple of slightly naughty gifts too? If your other half has a sense of humour they might like these!
Joanna makes gorgeous little wish bracelets at her shop Catching Dreams Crafts but this has to be one of my favourites! It’s a “You still make all my cogs turn” Adjustable Wish Bracelet. The bracelet is made from Waxed Cotton attached to a Cog charm.
Finally, here’s one of my items from my Crafty Miller shop – BOOBIES!! (teehee). Available in lots of colour combinations and stuffed for a “natural” feel.
Now I’ve got your gifts covered, quick get to the checkout because, remember, handmade gifts take time to make…..
