Often we don’t have much time to spoil our partner after the arrival of kids. Valentine’s Day is a chance to be a bit romantic and choose something that shows your love in a tangible way!
Sarah Ponthieu of Etsy shared some Australian-based ideas for an easy yet thougthful gift this year.
Listen to Sarah’s interview on Kinderling Conversation:
Wooden record jacket frame
This frame turns a favourite record or book into a piece of art on the wall. From Corner Block Studio, it’s simple, yet beautiful. Price: $62
The Man Stand
Blacklist Prints have found the best solution to those last minute scrambles on the way out of the house. The Man Stand is an adjustable plywood stand/organiser that stores everything you might need; keys, phone, wallet, sunglasses and it also doubles as a phone or iPad stand. It’s can also be personalised with a name or message to make it really unique. Price: $40.
Always a go-to gift for a loved one, but personalising it makes it an extra beautiful and affordable gift. Jules Read Jewellery is a one stop shop for all sorts of personalised jewellery and accessories like key rings, cuff bangles, necklaces… the list goes on. Price: from $55.
Etsy has many stores with custom portraits, so find a store that you love and send in a photo of yourself, family or pet. They then create a piece based on that photo as a digital print or hard copy. This example from Rocsanne Putri is particularly cute. Price: from $60.
Couple dressing tees
It sounds a bit naff, but these ‘Till Death’ shirts from Rebecca Jones Apparel are actually a really cute way to remind your partner of the commitment they’ve made! Price: $80 for both.
Vintage Big and Little spoon set
Perhaps a bit old-world-y upon first thought, but this matching spoon set from EATcreations are gorgeous. You can grab this big spoon and little spoon set, as they come nestled into each other (just like you and your lover!). Price: $48.
