Whether you're looking to share a small token of your affection or want to whisk your loved one away for a romantic weekend, we’ve got it covered at fforest. Here are our top 10 ideas for the perfect Valentine gift:
1. Relight my fire
There’s nothing more romantic than cuddling up in front of a roaring open fire. Always be ready to strike when the opportunity arises with this Swedish firesteel, which will not let you down even when other lighters and matches fail. A quality all-weather fire-steel of 12000+ strikes with a handle made from reindeer antler from Swedish Lapland.
2. A warming brew
At this time of year, a bracing winter day trip can be transformed with a quick cup of tea. You’ll be amazed how easy this little beauty is to use and how quickly she boils. At 0.5l, she’s just the perfect size for two cups too.
3. Tea for two
Not convinced with a brew in the great outdoors? Then how about this fforest favourite teapot for two. Add a couple of fforest enamel mugs for the perfect romantic breakfast.
4. A hottie for your Hottie
When you can’t be around, make sure your other half still feels the love, even when it’s freezing outside, with a cosy hot water bottle covered in our distinctive fforest Welsh blanket textile.
5. Love or lust….or both?
Want to make sure you’re sending the right message, then hand deliver a delicious bar of NomNom Chocolate….or two.
Both are Super Salted Caramel - Halen Mon oak-smoked salt and Calon Wen butter, but Love is 44% cocoa milk chocolate while Lust is 72% cocoa dark chocolate.
6. For busy hands
Nothing helps you to get your thoughts in order better and park the stresses of everyday life than focussing on a great crafting project. We love spoon carving and recommend the Casstrom Crook Knife to get you started.
7. Something to snuggle into
Our coldatnight blanket cushions, with their soft as a feather fillings, are covered in our beautiful Welsh blanket textile made at a traditional water mill upriver from fforest. In a range of colours to complement any interior.
8. A big Welsh hug
From a simple wrap, to a baban to a full size blanket, we have a range of traditional Welsh textiles in our distinctive and unique coldatnight design to suit every taste and budget. Throw it over your sofa, your bed or just wrap it around your shoulders and take it with you wherever you go. Have blanket will travel.
9. A relaxing revitalising break for your loved one
Syjunta - The Swedish word for people getting together to sew, crochet, knit, embroider and socialise. A weekend of chatting, embroidering and great simple food in beautiful Ty Fforest over the weekend of 10th to 12th February with expert guidance on design and embroidery included. This weekend is about sewing, but it’s also about socialising and relaxing. All skill levels are welcome.
10. A romantic weekend away
Don’t want to be left behind, then why don’t you both join us for the weekend of 17th to 19th February for a bracing walk, great food and drink, candlelight, open fires and plenty of fforest magic. We have a limited range of cosy accommodation available at fforest farmyard and at the granary lofts in Cardigan town.
