Gifts that say "I Care"

Gifts that say "I Care"

This year I’ve had lots of orders from customers who are sending special gifts to friends. They were simply saying "I’m thinking about you" and "I care about you". There was no specific occasion or reason, just a gift out of the blue. How wonderful would that be? A lovely way to boost someone’s mood, confidence and absolutely make their day, week or month!

Now of course not many people can afford to spend a fortune on these kind of gifts. But don't worry, something affordable yet beautiful will absolutely do the trick. Here are my top ideas that are the perfect way to say I care. I love handmade products so they are all handcrafted right here in NZ.

Dear Darling - Resin Keychains

I don’t know if you have ever tried to press flowers but it’s far more difficult than it looks. The good news is that Dear Darling is an absolute pro. These adorable keychains have all sorts of beautiful florals and stones encapsulated in resin. They a a beautiful way to adorn your keyring and make someone feel special.

Big Little Gift Box - Kiwi Inspired Gift Box

This is a completely affordable gift box at $49 full of lovely Kiwi inspired treats like manuka honey soap and kawakawa balm. I thought this would be great for someone just settling into life in NZ maybe after some time away or a friend who has moved from overseas. The honeycomb fabric basket is a lovely ongoing reminder of the gift and can be used as home storage.
