Want to treat the one you love to a special gift this Valentine’s Day? Forget the standard chocolates and flowers and give the gift of Scandi style
First things first, the card. Let’s be honest, getting this right is going to dictate how the rest of your Valentine’s Day goes. Step away from the bawdy cards and opt for something altogether more subtle and heartfelt. We think that our in-house NORSK Valentine’s card with its message about the feeling of euphoria you get when you’re falling in love is about as romantic as it gets. This card and this one by Katie Leamon also strike just the right tone.
Now you’ve got the card sorted, it’s time for the all-important gift(s). Yes, we say gifts plural because while we think anyone would love this cup by Sögne, just giving that alone might not go down brilliantly. How about making it the ultimate 'cosy night in gift' by adding a beautiful Klippan blanket in pink or perhaps smokey blue stripes, and a gorgeous Meraki giftbox of scented Harvest Moon hand soap and hand lotion.
If you’d like to plan a romantic getaway with your beloved, the Kinfolk Travel Book makes the perfect gift – and you get to benefit from it too. Or why not go a step further and book a weekend away at our Scandi-inspired Summerhouse in the pretty village of Long Crendon. It's the perfect place for a grown-up getaway, if we do say so ourselves.
Given that you’re choosing gifts from NORSK, we can assume you have great taste in interiors so we’d suggest treating them to something lovely for the home. This Fig & Apricot scented candle and room spray by Meraki are sure to go down well. This sweet tealight metal house decoration by Walther & Co will also create a lovely atmosphere. And of course a beautiful glass vase to display those Valentine's blooms is a must.
And if you’re looking for something a little different, these stainless steel cooling cubes by Pulito will make a stylish gift for chilling their G & T or whisky.
So there you have it, the NORSK Valentine’s gift guide – and not a novelty heart in sight.
