Make the Planet Your Valentine

10th February 2022

Distinctive valentines gifts from Cornwall

Whether you celebrate your Valentines in Cornwall, Palentine’s, or Galentine’s, the 14th of February is just around the corner.  Try giving differently this year and choosing something from Shop Cornish; not only will you be supporting Cornwall’s local makers, producers, and growers, but you’ll be helping to reduce your environmental impact through reduced air miles and sustainable practices.  We’ve put together this easy valentines gifts guide with some romantic hints if you are hoping for extra brownie points.

Valentines Gifts Cornish Cream Tea

A picnic date
February might be in the midst of winter but some days it can feel like Spring (with a bit of sunshine and the right wind direction). Dust off your picnic rug and take your loved one to your favourite beauty spot for a lazy picnic lunch. For a very special treat, buy a prepared lobster online from The Cornish Fish Co or visit Just Shellfish in Port Issac to collect; wash down with a Tarquins award-winning tipple! Don’t forget the sweet treat – we love a Cornish cream tea from Cornish Cream.

Fall in love with art
Treat yourselves to a piece of art for your home that will trigger happy memories of places that you’ve visited together. For beautiful Cornish seascapes try Sarah Eddy Art or Dr Martin Raskovsky

Popping the question?
For those of you that are thinking of popping the question this Valentine’s, Cornwall is brimming with jewellery makers who are inspired by the land and sea around them. Choose a piece that has a personal connection, Gemweyth Sea glass can make bespoke pieces with sea glass that you have found on your adventures or C Jane Jewellery can commission a special piece just for you.

Say it with a succulent
Watch your love grow as you create your own garden globe in a glass Terrarium. Surreal Succulents are based in the beautiful Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens, and they take their inspiration from the climate and environment that surround them.
