remember when you were little and getting your own piece of mail was earth-shattering? to be honest, i still get pretty excited when i receive a hand-addressed envelope in my mailbox. valentine's is a great excuse to send some snail mail to the kids in your life, and we are loving the options below.
it's a dog. in a hard hat. thank you for that, red cap cards.
rigel stuhmiller brings us dinos & other choice critters of the painfully cute variety.
hello! lucky amps up the neon quotient in these sweet treats.
who doesn't want a la familia green warthog in their mailbox?
today we wanted to share some of favorite gifties, from jewels and gems to books and bags. don't forget that we also have something that is sure to hit the spot for everyone on your list -- soft, chewy, decadent caramels. handmade in minnesota since 1981, we an barely keep these in stock. if you've had one, you know what i'm talking about.
let's start with some jewels...
pyrrha is a perennial favorite, and this is one of our most beloved talismans. "inseparable" features a shield whose pattern is that of a true lover's knot. each strand is able to move about the other, yet they are inseparable.
pyrrha's "heart print" works for a partner, a daughter, a sister, a mother. translated from the french, its inscription reads "you are imprinted on my heart."
we love local jewelry artist laurel denise, and we just got a new supply of brown (pictured above) and gold leather bracelets! laser engraved with a variety of sweet words, including "all you need is love," "loved," "to the moon and back," "xoxo," and many more.
laurel also just started making these beautiful cuffs with a design in gold on dark brown leather.
a classic and iconic pattern in a variety of super-functional shapes, we're excited to have orla kiely's bags and wallets in the shop. (and more patterns are due in this spring!) seriously, you can't go wrong with orla.
the hobo lauren wallet never goes out of style and continues to be one of the most coveted items we have in the shop! available in a variety of colors, including black, gray, rosewood, mint, and caramel.
we just received a new shipment of candles & soaps from paddywax, and we are loving this romantic floral packaging. it's a nice reminder that spring is on its way!
poppy soap co.'s organic lip butters have the cutest packaging (hey sweets!) and complex flavors like peppermint basil and tangerine vanilla. this company donates 5% of their sales to women's shelters in the u.s., which is definitely a program we can get behind.
thich nhat hanh is one of our favorite authors, and "how to love" promises to offer a new perspective on bringing love into our lives in all sorts of ways.
"your love life in lists." enough said.
which love bird are you? an unusual and insightful approach to relationships that could make for fun date night perusal.
you know what else goes well with that date night? poppin' some tops with this bottle opener handmade by beehive in massachusetts.
and finally, this sweet book is well-suited for anyone who has your heart this valentine's day!
we know that valentine's day can be a touchy subject, but the way we see
it, it's a time to tell everyone you love just how much they mean to
you. grandparents, parents, husbands, wives, kids, friends -- they're all part of this love-fest. at the rate
