On Valentine’s Day, February 14, we celebrate love and friendship. A memorable Valentine’s Day gift should be something cute and meaningful but still as long-lasting and timeless as your friendship. We picked 8 Valentine’s Day gift ideas from Finnish Design Shop’s selection that will charm your sweetheart!
The coffee mug that brightens up every morning is surely a welcomed gift, and what could symbolize friendship better than the beloved Moomins? Moomins love with their full hearts and always have their friends' backs. The mugs of the new alphabet collection are decorated with the letters L, O, V, E, H, and M, which can be used to form the words LOVE and HOME. If you're lucky, you'll find your colleague's, roommate's, or family member's initials from the selection!

For years to come
If art glass is a shared passion between you and your partner, why not collect it together? Mouth-blown art glass objects are not only wonderful splashes of color as well as interesting details in a shared home but also long-lasting memories to symbolize your own, unique love story or meaningful life events. Made by hand at the Iittala glass factory in Finland, Oiva Toikka's fruits and vegetables are irresistible in all their brilliant colors – not forgetting the charming glass birds!

Take gentle care
If your friend often gets chilly toes, a good old-fashioned hot water bottle is a savior! The Sara hot water bottle by Lapuan Kankurit takes care of your loved one and pampers even the bare skin with soft and pleasant wool. In addition to warming up on the sofa, a hot water bottle also helps with local pains, such as stomach, shoulder, or muscle aches. You can also use the bottle cold!

Power of pink
If you are looking for a durable gift, a small table lamp is always a good and necessary choice. TIPTOE's Nod table lamp is the first luminaire of the French design studio, and it charms with its versatility: the lamp made of aluminum and steel has a dimmer, and its shade can be tilted by 35 degrees. If the adorable pink is way too cute for your taste, there are many other delicious color options available!
