The Valentines Gift Guide

February 3, 2017
By Sarah Cowan

What better time of year to choose a handmade card or gift for your special someone? When you buy direct from the designer-maker, or independent shop, you’re buying the result of years of education, experimentation, experience and expertise. With all that wrapped up in one small package, the difference between these lovingly-created items and their mass-produced alternatives could not be greater.

The lovely designer-makers and independent shops who support our campaign are the perfect people to help you find something that has been made with love and care! Here we present a small selection of their products. We hope you find something that’s perfect for your special person.
