Valentines day shopping guide (favorite online shops)

Valentines Day Favorite online shops As you may already know, I consider myself as a homebody, so online shopping is one of my favourite things to do. Haha. I especially love to buy stuff not everybody has, from small shops are vintage. And because it’s almost Valentines Day, I wanted to share with you a few of my favourite online shops.

Sure, Valentines Day is not about getting or giving presents. But showing your loved one, bestie or Mama how much you appreciate them is just wonderful.
And who doesn’t like to get a little something?

My favorite things to get on Valentines Day
  • Stationary. I’m obsessed with stationary. So a nicely designed notepad or some sweet sticky notes are a practical thing that will remind you of the who gave it to you, day by day.
  • Little home goods. Such as a little dish, coaster or piece of art.
  • Flowers or plants. Flowers are such a classic but so beautiful and who doesn’t like fresh flowers.
  • A nice card with a handwritten note. For sure my favourite thing! It’s so simple, on everybody’s budget and you can really show how much you care for somebody.
  • TIME. Spending time with somebody you like is the best thing. A nice dinner, cuddling on the sofa, film night with friends. Whatever you do, do it together.

What are your favourite things to give or get on Valentines Day?


NUNUCO Design Company

The first shop I want to talk about is NUNUCO. A Finland-based brand who makes colourful, playful and chic accessories (such as phone cases, stationery, leather goods,  homeware and more).  I personally am a huge fan of their phone cases and agendas! I use one of their iPhone cases for years now and my mobile is crack free (and I drop it at least twice a week) haha. The quality of the case is really good, it protects the phone without being bulky. And it looks super chic as well. An absolute must for me and I highly recommend you to check their phone cases (here)

Miss Me Illustration

Miss Me, is an Etsy store where you can find beautiful illustrations made by Claudia M. Some of her prints are taken out of her sketchbook, others are painted with acrylic paint, but they all have a really raw and real vibe to it. What is something I really love about art. Claudia also does custom orders and ships worldwide from Germany.

    I have many ideas of presents for me: books, flowers, jewellery, underwear… My boyfriend know, that I like it, but there is a big problem, what can I give to him, becouse he always talk, that he doesn’t like presents, so every time I have a big problem, and maybe this time I will give him a handmade voucher for the dinner or something like this? Thank you for the inspiration 🙂

      Oh. I know that problem. Haha. Time spend together is always the best ‘gift’.. a lovely dinner sounds great (maybe home cooked).
      This year I will gift my boyf day trip to a kart race. *psssst* haha

      Much love, Ilka x

      Thank you, Andrea. I love personal gifts. Everybody can buy you something. But a meaningful gift is so much nicer and doesn’t have to cost a thing (like hand written notes or time spend together). Much love, Ilka x
