So this is the month where many couples embrace their romantic side, yes February the 14th, deemed one of the most romantic days of the year, although there's no reason why you can't embrace the romance all year round..why stop at one day!!
That aside, it is a great opportunity to spoil your other half, or anyone else special for that matter.. and if you do like to go all out and treat your loved one/s I have been creating some really beautiful gifts which would be just perfect to show how much you care, all the while shopping small and presenting your loved one with a unique and beautiful artisan gift. First though, I wanted to share a little news with you all about some exciting things that are going to be happening at Olivetreehome in 2020, including some amazing collaborations. One of these being with the very talented Lydia Packham who astounds me with her beautiful modern calligraphy skills.
Lydia has very kindly offered to add bespoke personalisation creating that perfect finishing touch to any of my luxury gift boxes, but with romance in the air, I thought this personal touch would look beautiful on my two brand new for February ranges, where I had Valentines Day in mind..
I really wanted to offer you all something which felt like a really elegant and luxurious gift to give, would be a pleasure to use, included a personal touch and was eco-friendly. Tick, tick, tick and tick!!! Look no further..
I have always loved vintage style glassware and the beautiful timeless statement that it oozes and these candles provide just that and more...
The Romance Collection - A Trio of Scented Soy Wax Candles
This luxurious set includes 3 beautiful mini cut glass jars, holding 100ml of gorgeous fragranced candles each. Inside each box you will receive the following scents.. Champagne & Strawberries, Sheer Lily & White Rose and Black Rose & Oud. I will finish with a sprinkling of real rose petals before adding a beautiful hand tied ribbon to the box.
Champagne & Strawberries Scented Soy wax Candle
My second valentine day gift is a larger version of my Champagne & Strawberries candle, providing a whopping 45 hrs of burn time!! I chose to package this in a limited edition pink ribbon tied gift box, to complement the valentine day, champagne and strawberries theme. But as before I will sprinkle a handful of rose petals within the box just to make it all the more romantic. It's all about those little details..
As I mentioned earlier, both of these can be personalised by Lydia for a small extra charge of £4-£5 however I would need requests by Monday the 10th February if these were to be ready in time for Valentines Day.
To give you an idea, here are some examples of her beautiful work..
So picture this... you have your beautiful candle, all ready to burn, romantic meal all planned and prepped, bottle of bubbly chilling on ice and maybe even a delicious box of chocolates from the amazing Hill St Chocolatiers in Saffron Walden. (Did you see them on Jamie & Jimmy's last night? yum yum!!)
If you ask me you have nailed it, and your loved one will be over the moon. You can't beat a thoughtful unique gift.
To make it super easy for you, I have attached the links below to both of my Valentines gift ideas. If you would like me to send direct to someone, simply add their name and address in the shipping info and let me do the rest...
I hope you all have a wonderful Valentines Day x
