NATURE INSPIRED Valentine Gifts


On one of the first Valentine's Days after my father married my second mother, he gave her a pair of Dutch Girl Painted Wooden Shoes...with, you guessed it... the sentiment "Wooden Shoe Be My Valentine?"  A rather kitschy expression, but as a little girl (though English/German, not Dutch), I thought it sweet and romantic (or I would not remember it still.) 

A pair of wooden clogs is not on my personal list of Valentine gifts, but other nature inspired wooden lovelies would be greatly appreciated.





These wooden bracelet stands are both functional AND sculpturally attractive. Find them here....perhaps with a little stone and metal token of love hanging from them?





I love the masculine vibe of these Hand finished Rosewood Keyboard covers for Macs. Great gift for the man OR gal in your life.












I am generally not a big fan of the heart shape, but I love the subtly of these stylized heart 
Olive Wooden Heart Nesting Bowls in triplicate. The graining is beautiful,  don't you think?







You may not recognize these smart looking jump drives from Oooms Design
as such, but what a voguish valentine they would make for your romantic or platonic valentine. While surfing and shopping online, lust after this chic hand made Haitian cuff bracelet.....a work of art on or off the cuff from Ash and Ames




Grand love calls for grand gestures.  Is this rustically elegant Riddling Rack Succulent Stand from Pottery Barn grand enough?




Not as grand, but enough to make your heart happy are these beautiful form meets function industrial chic hooks from Andrewsreclaimed.

Give you any ideas for your Valentines? If not, join me and LC today on FOUR YOUR GARDEN on NewsChannel 4 at 4:30. We'll be discussing What the Stylish Gardener will be Wearing this Spring.
