Sweet Love

Passing by a card shop today, I noticed their window was filled with big fluffy bears holding love hearts and foily red chocolates. This type of Valentine's show of affection is not for everyone (or anyone over the age of 12?) so we've been thinking of our own way to bring some love into the shop without it being saccharine overload.

We have a rather nice French theme planned, with Je t'aime chocolates, fab lollipops, "Amour" necklaces, travel books and cards that say "I love you" without going down the padding and frills route...

Until this is installed, we have a mini display centred around Kusmi Tea's "Sweet Love" Indian blend. It's had rave reviews from everyone who likes a proper cup of tea, and who could resist breakfast in bed on February 14th with a cuppa which comes in a tin like this?!

We have restocked on the 24kt gold Moroccan tea glasses which completely sold out before Christmas...choose the hot pink to match the Kusmi. To complete the Indian theme, we have mini Ganesh notebooks (write a message of love inside this instead of a card), handmade silk sari thread bracelets in the most beautiful shades and fantastic Bollywood earrings.

Kusmi Tea "Sweet Love" mini tin £5

Handmade silk sari bracelets £3 each

24kt Gold Moroccan Tea Glasses 3 for £11.50

Mini Ganesh Notebooks £3.75
