Gifts are rather nice things to give, and to receive, aren’t they? There’s something a little bit more special when the gift that’s being exchanged has been created, or finished, by hand by a real person, I think.
Amazon Handmade is a store within amazon.co.uk where artisans can sell their handcrafted goods, including a wide range of personalised items for Valentine’s Day.
When you buy Handmade you are directly supporting independent artists and producers, and you are buying a gift with heart and soul behind it.
We recently received a delivery of gorgeous handmade Valentine’s Day gifts (see our unboxing video above!). The parcel included:
BATH AQUA GLASS HEART BAUBLE
These stunning hand-blown glass hearts are made by the Bath Aqua glass blowers in Walcot Street, Bath England. They can be made in a variety of colours, and, if you want to make a mini-holiday out of it you can even visit the shop premises with your partner and combine your breath into one free blown glass heart with their Lover’s Valentine Heart Bauble Glass Blowing Experience. Can you get any more romantic than that? This gift is extra special to us because Bath was the city where my husband was born.
These baubles have been crafted using traditional glassblowing techniques and shaped entirely by hand – no moulds have been used and so each heart is a beautiful, unique work of art. There is a handmade glass loop at the top for hanging and the heart can be engraved with your choice of message, making it a perfect romantic or heartfelt gift for a friend or loved one.
To finish, each heart is signed Bath and dated with the year it was made.
RRP £25 plus £5 delivery for the glass hearts; £35 + £5 delivery for The Lover’s Valentine Heart Bauble Glass Blowing Experience.
