GIFTING IDEAS FOR YOUR SPECIAL LADY
Updated: Mar 19, 2019
Step away from that teddy!
Having trouble deciding on a special gift for your lady? We have prepared a few tips to step up the gift game.
Gifting for the most part can be daunting, but when your lady is a little more soulful than the typical commercial goods, you are suddenly faced with a mammoth task.
So we have taken it upon ourselves to offer you some guidance and inspiration for selecting the perfect gift this year.
FLOWERS - put a spin on classic
Red roses x
Potted plants ✓
Fresh cut Seasonal blooms ✓
Don’t conform and give another boring bouquet. Not only are the traditional red roses a painful cliché, they also are unreasonably expensive around this time of year and very likely grown in an unsustainable manner. Instead, reach for some fresh cut seasonal blooms, or a potted plant for a long-lasting, thoughtful, and eco-friendly gift, that will show how much you care.
JEWELLERY - made with care
Chain Store jewelry x
Hand-crafted silver ✓
By buying a handmade piece of jewellery you are telling your lady that you care enough about her to buy a gift as unique as she is. Hand-crafted jewellery is made with care, by artists who take pride in their craftsmanship, and that are much more environmentally conscious than the mainstream brands. The handmade pieces convey so much more than a generic item pulled off the shelves in a store. Celebrate her individual style.

HANDBAGS - sometimes the best gifts are the most obvious
Fast fashion bag x
Sustainable bag ✓
Embellished purse ✓
One of the reasons why a handbag is a perfect gift is the fact, that it does not have to fit the size, nor does it require any alterations.
Much like a man’s suit, craftsmanship in handbags is what separates the good from the bad. Rather than mass-market products, reach for a beautifully constructed, quality leather piece or if you feel confident and you really want to step up the game opt for a unique handbag that won't go unnoticed.

When it comes to cosmetics, we highly recommend to turning your backs on conventional corporate beauty products. Go cruelty-free instead. Not only are these products a more mindful solution when it comes to animal testing, but they are also generally healthier, as they do not contain harmful chemicals like parabens, sulfates, and synthetic dyes.
Here are a few of our favorites:
We aren't all gifted with the ability to capture the moment well enough to display on the living room wall. Luckily it is very easy to find an artist or photographer who has prints / original artworks of places that you have enjoyed together.
