It probably did not escape you, in a little less than a week, it’s valentine’s day gift. For all those who will celebrate it, and for all those who, regardless of the date, are looking for a nice attention to offer to their better half, Les Refiners have just offered a special selection entitled Les moots blues. To unearth original, varied and accessible gift ideas, you can count on the 10 products we have chosen to spoil Madame. Something to celebrate, for a day, the art of loving.
“YOU TO ME” GAME
When we think of the ideal valentine’s day gift evening, we don’t necessarily imagine playing a game of cards. However, this one caught my eye with its pleasant graphics and its ultra-simple objective: to strengthen ties by answering a whole series of questions about each other. Something to laugh about and establish a nice connection at the start of the evening. Those who have been dating for a short time, it is at your own risk…
2) HELEN B MUGS
Whether she’s a tea or coffee addict, giving her a pretty ceramic mug playfully illustrated by Helen B, a Belgian illustrator, is bound to be a good idea. Personally, we love the “Naked couple” version. What put the mother-in-law in the embarrassment on Sunday morning?
3) BOOK “400 WOMEN ARTISTS”
She loves beautiful books? Why not set your sights on this fascinating volume highlighting the work and artistic journey of 400 female artists, from the Renaissance to today?
4) A SUBMERGED PLANT
You necessarily know the dried plants; let me introduce you to the submerged plants. Pretty isn’t it? I think it’s the perfect gift that combines both decoration and poetry. Currently, you can choose from the 19 species of plants available on the site, in 30ml or 200ml glass vials. All plants come from South Korea.
5) A MESSAGE KEYRING
His keying lacks a bit of fantasy? Are you afraid that she will lose the key that leads to your little love nest? Give him a nice little colorful key ring in vegetable tanned leather made in France. The icing on the cake, you choose the engraved message that best suits the person concerned. The best thing is to have each his own, to think about the other all the time.
6) A COTTON TOILETRY BAG
Want to offer him a pretty, colorful, spacious, robust and water-repellent toiletry bag, perfect both at home and when traveling, the French brand Les Pensioners has designed it for you. I chose this product for its large capacity, its resistant coated fabric, it’s pretty interior lining and its Portuguese manufacture. Special mention for the Saffron Yellow and Rust colors which smell good of summer.
7) POSTIE CANDLES
Dim light, subtle fragrance; candles will inevitably be your allies on valentine’s day gift. With their terracotta-style Eco-resin tea light holders, their cork stoppers and their 4 flavors (pink peony + nectarine, cashmere + vanilla, wild flowers + sea air, fig tree + galbanum), Posies candles have something to seduce. Made of soy wax and coconut wax, these 100% natural candles are made in Champagne.
8) LEATHER JEWELRY DISPLAY
I was seduced by this steel and leather jewelry display whose shape is reminiscent of a flower. In addition to allowing your darling to neatly store her jewelry, it also allows you to dress up any piece of furniture nicely. This vegetable tanned leather product, available in 3 colors, was made in Turkey by Unyoke and designed by Bilge or Saltlick.
9) AN ORIGINAL PHOTO ALBUM
What better way to immerse you in these precious moments spent together than an offbeat and original photo album? This is the conviction of the Swedish brand Print works which offers here a very beautiful album disguised as a fine art book. With its fabric cover and its retro-pop “asymmetrical labyrinth” pattern, we are light years away from the bland albums we are used to. In a library or on a shelf, it will be perfectly highlight and will bring a touch of fun.
10) A HUMOROUS POSTER
I have chosen to close this selection by presenting you with a pretty poster illustrating some of the most emblematic French expressions in a “first degree” way. Because humor is essential in life, that’s what seduced him, wasn’t it? Violate Valise’s illustrations are to be enjoy without moderation.
