Oh, Valentine’s Day. The sometimes hated, oft-adored day of red and pink is creeping up on us. Over at Houzz, they put together a list of SUPER fabulous Valentine’s Day gift finds, and I literally love everyone of them. The decidedly hip Jonathon Adler needlepoint pillow is divine (hello hubby!), and the antique French tea towels would be an excellent gift idea for the cook of the house.
Going along with the recent trend in dimensional letters as decor and art, the rusty alphabet would be a neat way to spell out the initials of the one you love or present a simple but poignant statement (“Marry me?” anyone?).
We have some gift ideas of our own, regardless of their romantic “aesthetic”. How about a stunning color block style print from Bente Miltenburg? I love the lines and the vibrancy of his work. Perhaps a sweet embroidered art piece, or some darling textiles, ties and hankies from This Humble Abode?
If you don’t have a lot to spend but want to make sure your honey gets something made just for them, take a look at Alicia Carrier’s hand-drawn one-hour drawings. Give her “carte blanche” with her art, or give her a little design direction and watch her go!
And if you really want to splurge on your honey, “dive” deep into one of our elegant free-standing tubs. They’re gorgeous, and will promise many hours of lasting enjoyment in the future for your better half. Believe me, they will thank you later!
