The season of love is upon us, with 14 February officially when we celebrate those we love more than any other day – from Valentines to Galentines, Palentines, pets and everyone in-between!
Whether you’re someone who gets swept off their feet in a shower of heart emojis, are a traditional gift-giver, or you prefer to celebrate those you love in your own special way (rather than in February) – there’s no denying the global force of Valentine’s Day!
But how much do you know about this day that now belongs to Cupid’s arrow? After a fun little research session, we’ve found 10 pretty interesting ‘facts’ about this Global Day of Love. Read on to see what we discovered!
Few things are better than receiving a personalised gift, chosen with care and sent with love. And with the holiday season fast approaching (hard to believe, isn’t it?), and everything happening this year, it’s even more important to get organised early with your gifting.
Many of us are separated from our loved ones due to travel restrictions and other obstacles this year, and so curating meaningful gifts you can send has become more important than ever. Postage may be delayed, the idea of shopping in crowds is even less appealing, but the desire to reach out and let loved ones know you’re thinking of them is just as strong, if not stronger.
So, this year, let us inspire you to curate meaningful gifts and gorgeous care packages for the ones you love, so you can get organised early. With a little bit of thought and preparation, you can really and truly make someone’s year. Keep reading for some simple yet thoughtful ideas for gifting with a personal touch – and some gorgeous kikki.K stationery – this year.
Gifting for the minimalist
We all have people in our lives who prefer a more minimal approach to life. They enjoy style and functionality and everything has a place and a purpose in their lives. We love gifting for the minimalist at kikki.K, as our Scandinavian heritage means our items are not only beautiful, but extremely useful and functional. So, what would we suggest for this person?
Grab a gift box (with a lid, ideally) and line it with wrapping paper, butcher’s paper or tissue paper. Then, we’d fill it with a few key items you know they’ll love. Think about what they’d use for work or at home. Choose items you know will help them live their best life every day and arrange them in the box in a neat and beautiful way. For this gorgeous pack pictured, we’ve chosen:
And for the finishing touch, the personal element, and the part that will make this gift truly thoughtful, we’ve added some homemade cookies in a little bag as well. You could add lollies, chocolates, Swedish Pepparkakor (gingerbread biscuits) – anything your recipient loves!
Decorate your package with gift tags and embellishments, add in a handwritten Greeting Card or note, pop the lid on and send (adding any padding or packaging you’ll need to ensure a safe journey to your loved one!)
If you’re looking for some easy recipes to add to your gifts, here are some of our favourites below:
This year is the perfect year for encouraging loved ones to tap into their creative side! And if you know someone who would just love receiving a gift that would allow them time to reflect and express their creativity, then we have the perfect little package you can put together!
As per the above idea, grab a box and line as you wish. Then, have a think about what your recipient enjoys and then peruse our gorgeous selection of DIY and Creative goodies to fill your package. We love the idea of encouraging creativity, especially as a gift. For this particular package, we’ve included the following, to inspire reflection, fun and imagination:
Just as we shared in the first gift package, we think adding a personalised touch of something homemade is a wonderful idea. We chose homemade granola in a jar for this particular pack, but if you’re looking for some easy recipes to add to your gifts, here are some more of our favourites below:
Our third gift pack idea holds a special place in our hearts, especially after the strange and unexpected year 2020 has been for us all. It’s our pack for the dreamers. The ones planning big things for 2021, those people in our lives we know are looking to make next year incredible. Give them a little helping hand with a practical yet inspiring selection of Dream Life items you just know they’ll love!
Pop it all in a lined box, embellish with ribbons, gift tags and any other items you think will make it truly special, and don’t forget to add that personal element. For this example, we printed out some photos of us and the recipient to show we’re thinking of them and share that they’re always in our hearts, even if they’re far away. You could add anything that means something to you and you’ll really make their holiday season.
The kikki.K items featured in this gorgeous package, to help your loved ones dream without limits, are:
We hope these ideas have inspired you to start thinking about your gifting ideas early, and also helped you to think about meaningful little packages you can send to your loved ones this holiday season, no matter where they are.
The key is to think about the things you’re recipients love and will use, then add in a touch of you – something personal – and wrap it all up as the perfect meaningful treat!
These are just a few examples of packages you could put together, so be sure to explore all of our gorgeous gift ideas at kikki.K, and enjoy getting organised early this year!
