Valentines Gift Guide

Valentines Gift Guide

It's officially the month of love! Is that too cheesy - I'm sorry about that. One thing I do love about this month however is an opportunity to spread a little bit of happiness. Whether you call them random acts of kindness or small simple gifts to make people smile, it makes everyone feel good. 

This month I have launched a range of small gifts to capture this spirit. They can be used for Valentines (14th Feb), Galentines (13th Feb - a day to celebrate your friendships) or just because you want to say "I'm thinking about you".

Here's a guide to my range of sweet little gifts from Big Little Gift Box and I have also thrown in a few goodies from my favourite handmade stores too. Everything is wallet friendly and under $30.


Rose and Berry - Gift Set Duo

Here's the first little combo from Big Little Gift Box which includes a natural cold pressed handmade rose geranium soap from Global Soap in Nelson. This is paired with a hint of rose white chocolate made by Revel in Nosh. They come wrapped with a ribbon and gift tags so they are all ready for you to send - shop here.

Dasato Totara Bottle Openers

These fantastic bottle openers made from reclaimed Totara by a very talented sawdust maker David at Dasato Woodworking. Not only do they look stunning, but they are also functional. Each opener is finished with 100% pure Tung oil to provide water resistance and bring out the beautiful grain of the timber. You can find them here.

Store 17 in Christchurch has an exciting new Valentines collection of their gorgeous felt creations and it just launched last week. They include displays like the one below and also some little felt envelopes for you to send a unique love note - so sweet! Everything is made from 100% New Zealand wool and are sourced from fair trade suppliers in Nepal. Check out the full collection here.

Hot Milk Stirrers 

I can tell you from experience that Hot Milk Stirrers make some seriously delicious hot chocolate. Great for Valentines, Galentines, Palentines or just to treat yourself! These 'love' themed stirrers make a cute little way to show that special someone you care. You can shop online here.

Pretzel and Mandarin - Gift Set Trio

This gift set features three favourites which are often chosen in our 'design your own' gift boxes. This set includes a peanut and pretzel loaded chocolate bar, mandarin beeswax lip balm and “You are amazing” PositiviTeas™ individual tea bag. What a nice way to treat a friend or loved one and let them know you think they are awesome. You can see more here.

HanMade Drinkware

I have been a fan of HanMade drinkware for some time so I thought this was a great opportunity to show off some of their beautiful designs. The Valentines collection features a number of gorgeous styles of tumblers and glasses. If you don't follow on Instagram, I recommend you take a look here.
