The 14th of February is almost upon us and quite frankly spreading love and joy (at a safe distance, of course!) has never felt so valuable than on Valentine’s Day 2021. We could all do with a little reminder of just how special we are to each other so we’ve created our Valentine’s Day gift guide so that if you fancy gifting a loved one something really special, we can help.
Whether it’s a partner, grandparents, or even a close friend, we invite you to tell someone how much they mean to you. It could be a simple text or maybe a home delivered gift out of the blue. Luckily, we’re a sucker for knick-knacks and unusual gifts. So the Quince & Cook website is quite literally bursting with fabulous gift ideas.
Here are our top Valentine’s Day gifts for 2021.
Wild Flower Hex Drop Earrings | Ivy & Ginger
There aren't many lovely ladies that can resist some new accessories and right now we’re loving Ivy & Ginger’s hand painted earrings. You may have seen a sneak peak of the order over on our Instagram story where we shared all of the designs that you can choose from. All earrings are hand painted and use stainless surgical steel that is kind to sensitive skin. It was hard to choose just one pair for this guide. However these floral hexagon ones are just stunning and make a lovely Valentine’s Day gift.
Nothing beats a personal message on Valentine’s Day from a loved one. This card is a lovely little sentiment that you can give with a few words written inside. Not only that, the outline drawing design would look great framed and hung somewhere in the house to always remember.
Slow: Finding Peace & Purpose in a Hectic World | Jo Peters
During these unruly times, I think we could also use a little extra peace and serenity, don’t you? Slow by Jo Peters is a guide to grounding yourself and finding more calm in a chaotic world. From breathing techniques to the importance of self-care, this guide is all about creating a happier you. It would make a great gift for a partner or a family member who could find these lifestyle book’s a particularly interesting read. Or, perhaps someone who could find a lot of value in applying the concepts to their own life at the moment.
Acacia Wood Shaving Bowl with Sandalwood Shaving Soap | Norse
Treat the special guy in your life to this Norse shaving bowl and soap set. The bowl itself is made from Acacia wood and using shaving bowls is proven to be more eco-friendly and decreases the amount of waste. As for the soap, it’s gentle on the skin and creates a thick lather to minimise razor burn when shaving. We do love a practical gift on Valentine’s Day!
Gluten Free Nougat Jar | Nicholas Vahe
Everyone loves a sweet treat now and then and this adorable jar of gluten free nougat pieces make for a fun twist on the classic Valentine’s box of chocolates. Not only are they packaged delightfully, but they sweet and crunchy nougat tastes simply delicious!
Coast Candle | Our Lovely Goods
There’s nothing more romantic than long walks along the beach. Bliss. For those who live by the coast, we envy you! However, if sandy shores aren’t within your five miles travel radius, then close your eyes and light up Our Lovely Goods’ coast candle. Combining scents of wood, sea salt and sage, this is such a thoughtful gift for a loved one who adores spending time by the sea.
Handmade in Scotland. Cruelty free, vegan and presented in a recyclable jar.
Dutch Plant Pots - Blue
With Spring just around the corner, these beautifully hand made and decorated pots make a lovely gift for a loved one who enjoys spending time in the garden. Each pot is sold individually and we choose a design at random that we think you’ll just love. However, if you have a specific one in mind you can leave us a note and we’ll ensure that your special person gets the perfect plant pot.
Also available in more designs and colours.
From The Oven to The Table | Diana Henry
For the chef in your household, treat them to a new cookbook this Valentine’s Day. From The Oven to Table includes a wonderful selection of recipes using roasting tins and our favourite mantra of ‘bung it all together and pop it in the oven.’ Diana balances vegetarian dishes with meat and fish based recipes, and incorporates flavours from all around the world into her wholesome meals.
If you do buy this cookbook for your loved one, we hope it’s put to good use on Valentine’s evening!
Natural Dog Shampoo Bar | Paper Plane
Who said that Valentine’s Day was just for humans? Why not treat your favourite pooch to a pamper session of their own with this natural dog shampoo bar? Filled with natural essential oils which smell gorgeous, the shampoo bar also contains Neem oil which nourishes their hair, and plant extracts which help to naturally repel fleas.
Vegan, 100% natural and contains no plastic.
We hope that our Valentine’s Day guide gave you a helping hand in choosing the perfect gift. From all of us at Quince & Cook we hope that you have a wonderful Valentine’s day however you choose to spend it.
