VALENTINES | OUR TOP PICKS FOR YOUR LOVED ONE

We've transformed our winter woodland shop windows for Valentines Day. Our aim this year is to show our lovely customers that Valentine's needn't be a wasteful affair. From fun decoration ideas to thoughtful gifts, we've got everything you need to show that special someone that you care.

Looking for colourful, ethical decorations for a Valentine's themed party? Or maybe a fancy proposal? Our hand made paper decorations are made in a socially accredited workshop in India. We use 100% recycled paper, giving a new lease of life to something no longer needed. We love them so much as they fold flat for ease of storage so you can use them for future events.

We often get asked what you can gift someone who doesn't wear jewellery, the answer is always baskets! We challenge you to find someone who wouldn't find a basket useful. There's a great selection on our website at the moment including hand woven bowl baskets from Rwanda and our signature Kenyan baskets in bright colours. All made with love and care by skilled women weavers, so much emotion goes into each one.

For those who will always adore receiving jewellery, our new Monkey Puzzle collection is hand crafted in India using recycled silver and brass. The beautifully dainty collection is set together with precious green onyx and yellow citrine stones. We love gifting this collection due to it's timeless aesthetic and range of complementing, matching pieces.

Featured on Stand; Monkey Puzzle Ring 'Brass', Monkey Puzzle Hook Earrings 'Brass', Monkey Puzzle Necklace 'Brass', Star Charm Necklace 'Long', Monkey Puzzle Bracelet 'Brass' Pet accessories available from Hiro+Wolf
