The Christmas decorations may have only just been safely stowed away for another year, but as we’re rattling through the first month of 2023, our attention is starting to turn towards February and the special season of love. That’s right – we’re talking about Valentine’s Day! So, if you have someone special you want to shower with gifts this season, well look no further, as we have a lip-smacking gift guide packed with lots of love for you…
A Treasured Keepsake:
Looking to show someone special just how much you care with something they can treasure this Valentine’s Day and the whole year through? Well, look no further than Demdaco’s Inspired Bells.
The Inspired Bell range features a calming aesthetic and light, versatile colour pallet. With gentle hues of creams and golds, earthy tones of stone and grey, and relaxing shades of pale lavender, blues and greens, these delightful hanging decorations feature a twine handle, are presented in their own gift box and include a tag containing a sentimental message.
We adore the Love Inspired Bell. With its serene colours and sweet love heart detailing, along with a lovely sentiment which reads I love you with my whole heart, this small gift has huge heart and is sure to show someone how much they mean to you this Valentine’s Day (and beyond!).
Or how about Demdaco’s Love One to Keep One to Share Hanging Ornament? This super special set acts as a sweet reminder of the bond between the giver and receiver. While the two love hearts presented in lovely tones of creams and a chequered pattern of deep reds can be separated, they represent that love is everlasting and the bonds cannot be broken. Made from stoneware, why not pop one of these ornaments inside of a gift bag or Valentine’s Day card and keep the other for yourself? Either tuck it away somewhere safe with the rest of your treasured keepsakes or, thanks to the ribbon looped through each individual love heart, hang your heart as a lovely piece of décor around your home.
Perhaps you’re looking for a gift that is not only packed full of sentiment this Valentine’s Day, but a gift that can also be super practical (as well as stylish) around the home. After all, what’s better than a gift you can enjoy all year through, rather than just on 14th February each year?
We’ve fallen head over heels for this gorgeous wine glass from American glassware artist, Designs by Lolita. Called Hearts A Million, it features hundreds of tiny little love hearts in bright vibrant colours of pinks, blues, yellows, greens and oranges, packed tightly on the stem of the glass as they disperse gently up the vessel as if floating away in the heady heights of love!
Presented in a branded gift box, this piece makes a gorgeous gift for Valentine’s Day as well as being versatile enough to enjoy the whole year through. After all, who wouldn’t want to raise a glass to love 365 days of the year?
But maybe the bright and bold aesthetic of the Hearts a Million wine glass is not quite your or your recipient’s style. Well then, how about taking a look at the paired back, understated beauty of a piece from Willow Tree?
We think Love You is simply divine with perfect sentiments this Valentine’s Day and all year through. Measuring just 13.0cm but packed with big emotion, the figurine features a female form, head tilted to one side holding a gold wire circle, with the material crafted into letters which read Love You. What’s more, Love You is presented in a branded gift box and comes with a special gift tag sentiment which says A little reminder… - how sweet? It’s almost like a little love letter to your someone special.
Like all Willow Tree figurines, they are created by artist Susan Lordi, who hand-carves the original figure from her studio in Kansas City, Missouri. The pieces are then cast from her original carvings, with the figurines communicating their expression through gesture only. A simple tilt of the head or placement of hand allows the sculptures to speak in quiet ways that are open to individual interpretation.
Looking for a gorgeous gift for fans of all things Disney? Well, help to sprinkle a little magic onto your special someone’s Valentine’s Day this year with some of these perfect presents…
First up we have this simply wonderful Eeyore with Heart Balloon Figurine from Disney Traditions by Jim Shore. Featuring the ever so sad donkey from the much-loved Winnie the Pooh, this piece depicts Eeyore with a lovely pink and red love heart balloon around his collar, as if he’s about to be swept up, up and away in a rush of love.
Of course, as with all Jim Shore pieces, Eeyore with Heart Balloon Figurine is carefully created in the style that we all know and love from the world-renowned artist. Inspired by American folk art, this piece includes Jim Shore’s lovely quilting patterns and artwork motifs as part of its striking design.
Finally, no one does ‘happily ever after’ better than Jack and Sally! Stay together forever in Pumpkin Town with our Jack and Sally Picture Frame from Disney Showcase. Shaped to look like the head of a tombstone, this picture frame features the Pumpkin King and his corpse bride – Jack Skellington and Sally – from Tim Burton’s critically acclaimed film, The Nightmare Before Christmas.
And Don’t Forget…
Did you know that here at Enesco, we offer a range of personalisation options too? At the checkout on many different pieces, you can opt to buy a special personalisable base for your figurines, where you could have a little love note engraved onto the stand for your special someone.
Either have the package delivered to you so you can give to the lucky someone in-person on Valentine’s Day, or if distance means you can’t be together on 14th February (or perhaps you’re being an old romantic and want to be a secret Valentine), then you can have the gift sent directly to the receiver!
