Valentine’s Day Gift List
Valentine’s Day Gift List
Gift giving is very personal. With Valentine’s Day next Sunday, we thought we would take this opportunity to give you a few gift ideas that we personally would love to receive.
1 Konzuk Jewelry is just so special with Karen’s architectural take on designing jewelry. She uses concrete and stainless steel and her pieces are so unique. We just love them! You can find her here.
2 Another fave of ours are these xoxo mugs. Gabrielle Burke of G Ceramics & Co, uses 18 karat gold to paint the xoxo on these stoneware mugs. I would love to receive one of these on Valentines Day! more on Gabrielle here.
3 Jai Style has the best amulets and Mala bracelets. Tina and I both have an amulet and both of us wear them almost everyday! Visit Jai Style here.
4 Joanna Baxter really knows how to use leather to its best advantage. She comes up with the most innovative handbags and we just love her key chains, which can be used on their own for your keys or to add to your handbag for extra zing! Joanna can be found at LoverFighter.
5 Botany Living is another great idea for Valentine’s gift giving. They have added some gorgeous red and pink into their plantings and they are just singing for Valentine’s Day. You can find them on Instagram @botanyliving. Their website will be up and live soon here.

12 Ryley of Strathcona Stockings has beautiful images that she uses sublimation printing to print onto these very comfortable socks for men and women.
