We are romantics at heart at Wooden Blinds Direct, and we can find uses for wood in practically any situation imaginable, and Valentines Day is no exception.
We know that this is supposed to be the day of flamboyant gestures, champagne dinners and extravagant jewelry, but for many this is the perfect day to show your special someone just how much you really care, with a handmade, well thought-out gift from the heart; that’s why for this Valentine’s Day, we are showing you all the wonderfully romantic things that can be fashioned out of that oh so beautiful and natural material: wood.
Is there a more heartfelt gift in the world than some handmade jewelry, personally for your one and only? Wooden jewelry has been in fashion, it would seem, since the dawn of time, and shows no sign of going out of style any time soon. Necklaces, bracelets, even rings are a stylish yet tasteful way of showing someone you care.
Take it outside
Profess your love in the back yard, in the garden, or on the front lawn with a fabulous botanical heart, made from either plants or wood.
Add some rustic charm to your interior with a romantic wicker decoration, which can be purchased in a huge range of shops. If you are seriously going to go for it, you can always try your hand at making your own decorations – we wish you luck!
Very much in the same vein as the above, a hand-carved gift made out of wood is both stylish and romantic. Whether you are brave enough to carve out a gift yourself, or you’d prefer to play it safe and buy a carved trinket, this is the perfect way to show somebody how you feel about them.
Spell it out
There’s always the obvious route, of course – spell it out to someone how you feel about them. Wooden letters can be found in many arts and crafts shops, or you could always have a stab at carving out your own, unique message.
