In case you didn’t know, we LOVE shopping small here at 91 Magazine. So, at every gifting opportunity, we always turn to our favourite stores to bag the best gifts that we know our loved ones will adore as much as us. Whether you love Valentine’s Day, prefer Galentine’s Day or would much rather gift yourself something for being your truly amazing self, we’ve rounded up a small edit of lovely gifts to give on February 14th…
LOVE WINS ALWAYS patchwork quilt – £380
Is there anything better that snuggling under a cosy quilt with your fave?! This one, by projekti tyyny, will also provide a daily reminder that Love Wins Always. Yes it does. This may be a slightly more pricey Valentine’s gift, but a patchwork quilt like this is for life, to pass down through the family. Not only that, but 100% of the profits of this quilt are going to UNICEF’s work with children in Ukraine affected by the war.
Hand Painted Pink Daisy Cup and Saucer Set – £35.00
The cutest of cute ceramic cup and saucer from Dill will brighten up your morning espresso (it holds approx. 250ml), or use it as a trinket holder. A sweet gift for any ceramic collectors in your life.
Home Spa Kit by Nathalie Bond – £38.50
If someone you love is in need of a proper pampering session, then why not treat them to this fabulous box of skincare goodies for creating your own at-home spa treatment? Scented with rose geranium and patchouli, it includes bath salts, body oil, a clay mask and a candle, perfect for relieving stress and aiding sleep.
Dried flower subscription – £15 monthly
While we love a beautiful bunch of fresh flowers, there’s no denying the longevity that dried flowers provide, plus there are so many gorgeous combinations and ways to display them. If your significant other can’t get enough of these beauties, then a subscription with Ivy Nook is just the ticket. Choose between monthly, bi-monthly or seasonal deliveries.
91 Magazine 2-issue subscription – £23
Talking of subscriptions, you are on the 91 Magazine website, so I couldn’t not mention our own subscription offering! (sorry, not sorry!) Interiors lovers or anyone who is embarking on renovating or redecorating their home will be well chuffed to receive our lovely print magazines, filled to the brim with creative inspiration. Currently, the first issue delivered will be Volume 14, which incidentally is our JOY issue – what a lovely thing to spread on Valentine’s Day!
Handmade porcelain vase – £42
Whether your preference is dried or fresh flowers, how lovely to present your floral gift in an accompanying vase? A beautifully hand-crafted porcelain one at that. This beauty is available from Paper Thin Moon, a family run business based in the Sussex countryside.
Pocket flower press – from £13
Carrying on the floral theme, we love the idea of preserving your Valentines flowers forever, so why not accompany them with this cute pocket press from Stems Wilder? You could even make it a tradition each year and create an archive of beautifully pressed blooms from every February.
A bespoke couple or family portrait – price on request
Have your partnership or wider family captured in a colourful and fun style by Spanish artist Marta Abad Blay. Simply by providing Marta with photos of those you’d like included, she will paint you all in her signature aesthetic, consulting you throughout on any changes or amendments. A wonderful way to capture the love you have for one another.
The Daily Glow facial oil – £28
Give that face you adore so much a little bit of TLC! (this could be your own of course!) This lightweight oil by Neighbourhood Botanicals is scented with a number of essential oils of the citrus-y persuasion, so will offer a zesty, fresh start to your day, while feeling delicious on your skin.
Date Night candle – £15
If you are unable to go ‘out out’ for Valentine’s, then why not settle in at home for a cosy date night in, with the scents of rose, peony, clove, amber & vanilla filling the air? It’s made in the UK, using 100% soy wax and is vegan friendly & cruelty free.
