Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. During exceptional times, a friend or partner can be surprised by a small package delivered directly to the front door. We put together nine sweet design gifts that will bring joy to loved ones!
A warm hug
A new ceramic mug for the coffee and tea moments guarantees happiness. Arabia's Love Moomin mug is the perfect pastel pink choice for Valentine's Day: it depicts the strong feelings between Moomintroll and Snorkmaiden. In case the Love mug is a too sugary choice for its recipient, the mugs amuse in several other colors as well.
Think outside the pot
Every green thumb gets a mood boost from something green and blooming. Design House Stockholm’s Grow mini greenhouse brings a new twist to growing the greenery: it creates a modern home for tiny plants, and the top has a small spout making it suitable for watering. Alternatively, the glass container hides the small favorite objects.
Take sweet care
What would be a greater gift than one that shows how much you care? Design Letters' Take Care hand sanitizer dispenser makes hand hygiene stylish and brings joy to every day. The pastel, sprayable dispenser travels effortlessly in the bag and is easy to refill. Due to its compact size, the gift is also convenient to send in the mail!
Bring the bouquet to a new level
The traditional Valentine’s Day flower bouquet gets a new lift in a beautiful vase. The tulips, roses, and carnations get a lovely home in Kastehelmi vase, designed by Oiva Toikka. The vase decorated with glass pearls is suitable for many interior styles and delights on a windowsill or side table. Instead, the vase can be filled with your friend’s favorite treats – easy and delicious!
Ticket to tasty travels
Is your buddy interested in new food adventures? The book Delicious Places: New Food Culture, Restaurants and Interiors takes the readers on an international taste journey and introduces 60 restaurants, bars, and cafes around the world. The compelling book offers plenty of eye candy and inspires one to dream of future travel destinations.
Pamper skin and senses
Cheer up a friend with a relaxing pampering session: beautifully designed body care products give a stress-free time and soften winter-dried skin. Handcrafted in Finland, the vegan Juniper lotion contains natural ingredients, such as gentle coconut oil and shea butter, and the scent reminds us of the fresh juniper from forests.
Invite a friend to an embrace from a luxurious terry towel: Tekla’s warm-colored bath sheets are made of organic cotton and are the perfect companion for both sauna or a person looking for extra softness in the bathroom. The minimalist and high-quality towels will delight from season to season and suit the style of many.
Hay's Sip Swirl straws are a great option for a person who already has it all. The playful and durable straws make thirst-quenching so much more fun and bring extra color to the table setting. The straws made of borosilicate glass can be used even for hot drinks, and they delight in everyday life over and over again.
Touch of nature
A friend of art and nature gets excited about Teemu Järvi Illustrations' Leaves mini poster set. The set includes four art prints of various colors from Nordic flora, and they have been made using a Japanese Gyotaku technique. The mini poster set travels easily via letter mail, and the posters delight on the wall of the home office, for example.
