With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we have a wealth of gifts in our carefully curated Valentine's Day Gift List to treat your Valentine, Galentine or Self (totally encouraged).
Every blanket, basket and bangle we sell at Postcards Home is handmade with love by independent designers and social enterprises around the World, so you can purchase with pride knowing that you're part of a wave of the warm fuzzies.
If you're struggling for inspiration this Valentine's Day, and a pink fluffy teddy bear with your name embroidered on it isn't your bag - here are some not-so-soppy Valentine's Day ideas to show you care:
1. If Music be the Food of Love, Frame On
Do you have a favourite song that you dance around the kitchen together to? Handwrite out the lyrics and pop them in a photo frame ready to adorn the bedside table or gallery wall. It's a great way to gift something truly personal that will make you both smile day after day.
2. Get Your Apron on
Having your favourite meal cooked for you whilst you sit and relax with a glass of wine is second to none. If you want to raise the temperature a bit, the latest Great British Food Magazine was a 'British Curry' special, and featured our handmade mint enamelware with some dangerously delicious looking dishes.
3. Galentine's Day Gifting
Ain't nothing gonna make you feel loved on Valentine's Day like gathering together your Girl Gang for a night of fizz and laughter. You don't have to go all Leslie Knope and make a friendship photo album for everyone - if you want a slightly less time-consuming way to treat the ladies in your life, our Poodle Pouches and Peace Sign Pouches are a great way to spread some smiles with your Soul Sisters.
4. The Gift of Putting Your Feet Up
Our handmade Babouche Slippers are a great Valentine's Day gift for a man who never gives himself time to relax, or for a Woman who deserves to put her feet up in style. We'd recommend the slippers are accompanied with a pledge to keep the kids in the other room for the afternoon, a good book to sink into, or some artisan teas that can be sipped slowly with the Sunday papers.
5. Play it by Ear
Our hammered brass jewellery is handmade in South India by the wonderful women of the Flowering Desert Project, so each purchase spreads a little love around the World. We love wearing our Lovebird Earrings and Heart Earrings in February to celebrate the Month of Love head first. We all deserve a little self-gifting sometimes.
And because we love you all so very much - use code LOVE15 for 15% off all purchases until midnight 14th February!
